My HP LaserJet 4050 has a parallel port to which I would connect my TI using the TI RS232/PIO card. Any time I powered off and sometimes when powering on the PEB the printer would indicate "DATA RECEIVED" and it would hold up any other print jobs until the timeout period expired.
I managed to pick up a CorComp RS232 card and wondered if it would replicate this behavior. I am happy to find it does, but very infrequently, like one out of twenty times.
The only problem I have with this configuration is the last page of a printout from the TI will not print until I tell the printer to "GO." This behavior existed with other modern printers, as well. Is there an option I can use with the PIO device which prevents this, like a "form-feed after print" option?
