IBM AS/400 Iseries Client Access print to light
Posted on 2014-07-22
We have installed some Windows7 PCs, installed IBM Client Access V5R4 on them for display and printer emulation. Our AS/400 is running V5R1M0. We are printing to an HP Laserjet 2300D printer. In the printer emulation, we have specified font 011-courier 10, and NO host print transform. We are printing on regular 8 1/2" x 11" paper, and the user wants the print to be as large as possible. The reports print landscape, and pretty large, but since moving to Windows 7 and Client Access V5R4, the print is very, very light, and the font may be just ever so slightly smaller. The main problem is that it is so light, it looks like the printer is running out of toner, but it isn't. I tried using a workstation customization file with this printer, specifying asciifnt=204 and fntwth=108 for cpicor cpi=10, but that only created more problems, reports then print on legal paper, and the user has to press a button on the printer each time a report is sent to it. Does anyone know how we can get our dark print back?
