PCL code is printing through raw queue

Q: PCL codes are showing in my print job and I am using a raw print action.

A: This could be caused by any of the following:

  • The printer does not support PCL

If this is the case, you must either format the data differently on the sending side, or use a "text" type queue when that is not possible.

  • The printer does not support that PCL version

Format the data using a PCL level that the printer does understand.

  • The Windows driver is using different PCL version than what is in the file

Change the Windows print driver to one that supports the same PCL version that is in the file or use a "text" type queue in RPM if that is not possible.
