NEC p6200 allignment issue
Posted on 2007-11-15
A client has 2 NEC Pinwriter P6200 dot matrix printers. Both printers worked fine using there old DOS based Foxpro software. This week they upgraded to the Windows based version provided by there application vendor. Now they cannot print multiple Invoces etc without having to stop and reset the start position of the form before doing the next one. The form ends up being 1/4 of an inch under where is should line up. I have tried different drivers, different print servers, connecting directly to a PC with the same result. I also tested from Microsoft Word by bringing up a one page document, resetting the page setup to 8.5 x 8.5 (the size of the form) and send 5 or 6 copies to it and it works fine.
Naturally, the software vendor say it si not there issue.
