<b>Symptom</b>

<b>Other terms</b>

SAPlpd SAPWIN

<b>

Reason and Prerequisites</b>

error in the Windows printer drivers of HP

<b>

Solution</b>

This HP printing issue is fixed in BJ 1100 driver version Armstrong R233-L, in BJ990, in BJ 2550, and in BJ4050.

We certainly require answers to the below questions and a contact person with mail and phone address.

HP standard print drivers are located at HP Website :

http://www.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers

alternative :

Point&Print drivers (aka wizard drivers) for several printer models can be found here:

http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/pond/pnp/

Please be so kind and give us some feedback about the results.

If the printer drivers didn't fix your problem, please be so kind and send us the following information:

1. printer model

2. a detailed description of the issue

3. steps to reproduce (ie. Which transaction are they printing from?

Can it be reproduced from SE78 with the logo only - if logo related, etc.)

4. which device type is used. In case of SAPwin, see below

5. a copy of the intermediate saplpd output files

To capture the SAPlpd files, please run SAPlpd from the command prompt BEFORE you start the print job. This is how to do it: at the command prompt, type "saplpd.exe -k" (without the quotation marks). When you print, two files will be created. You can find them in the directory where SAPlpd runs. On my PC, this is C:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\SAPlpd The two files will have the same name except for the ".slp" extension of one of them.

6. a hardcopy example of the print out

7. if the issue is logo related, a copy of the logo for testing

8. a copy of the printer's configuration and menu pages

The printer's configuration and menu pages, We need the test pages from the printer which will tell us which firmware it has, which settings are used on the printer etc., not the screenshots from the SAP device setup.

If you use SAPwin:

9. which Windows version is used and which SP

10. which driver - pcl5/pcl6/PostScript, and which version?

The version number can be found here: Open the printers folder, open the printer properties, click the "About" tab (all the way to the right). At the top of the next screen you will see something like 60.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx. This is the driver version number. If you want to add more information, a driver test page will show the version numbers of the different files used.

11. a copy of the intermediate saplpd output

To capture the SAPlpd files, please run SAPlpd from the command prompt BEFORE you start the print job. This is how to do it: at the command prompt, type "saplpd.exe -k" (without the quotation marks). When you print, two files will be created. You can find them in the directory where SAPlpd runs. On my PC, this is C:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\SAPlpd The two files will have the same name except for the ".slp" extension of one of them.

12. a print-to-file from the Windows system

13. Print out of a testpage (will contain some information about the file versions installed as well as whether it is PCL or PostSript
