This printer can choose from the followng combinations:
IBM Proprinter XL
When you use the Automatic Emulation Selection, note the following:
- The EPSON or IBM emulation mode priority must be selected, because the printer cannot distinguish between them. Since the factory setting is EPSON emulation mode, you might need to select the IBM emulation mode by using the control panel to access EMULATION in the SETUP menu.
- Try Automatic Emulation Selection with your application software or network server. If it does not work properly, select the emulation mode manually by using either the printer control panel buttons or the emulation selection commands from your software.
