I am trying to print a color logo, generated using PCLWork’s (v 8.77)) IMG2PCL utility on a BROTHER multi-function printer, model MFC9120CN. The printer spec says it has PCL6 and PS3.
Instead of the expected picture of a fish & the word ‘digiflex’, I am getting 7 small & 1 big rectangles splattered with some indecipherable characters on the printout.
The logo file, originally in JPEG format, was converted into an in-line PCL file with the no compresssion but color preserved.
I am able to view the generated PCL file in PCLWorks and it looks fine with color and all. I also deassembled the PCL file using the PCLcodes to view the PCL command sequences.
It was then transfered from the PC to another machine running VMS operating system. The file at the receiving end seems to be OK, I recognized the various PCL commands.
Is this a problem with the PCL file (i.e PCL command sequences) or the printer?
I have also tried printed the sample files that came with PCLWorks on this printer. I printed the file, TESTCCHT (which is a page of color charts), on this printer. I printed the everything, but in black and white. I also tried printing TESTJPEG, which is a picture in PCL XL format. The printer failed at this, giving the error: unsupported protocol.
Does anyone have experience with this printer?
