DC12 not printing from Bypass tray

[Copy link]

Post time: 2012-9-23 12:26:26 |Show all posts
Hi. My newly installed (but not new) DC12 (with Fiery X12 RIP) won't print to the bypass tray (tray 5) yet it did so yesterday. I get a message on the RIP saying "Selected paper size is not available" despite the tray setup on the printer and the printer driver matching.

Any clues to solving this is highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

great to know you are going nuts. some times we all go that way.

Which paper size are you trying to give in the command workstation

I've just installed the composite patch and also patch 1-56ps that I see mentioned in other threads. It still won't print from the bypass even with the driver for fiery x12 ver 1.5 vith composite patch, or the one for SP2 for that matter.
I'm going nuts now!

Hi David, Tray 5 is available in both PS and PCL drivers but it will just tell me the paper size is not available on the RIPs display as well as in Command Workstation (the printer does not give any message).
I can choose tray 5 in the job from Command Workstation but with the same result.

when you give print are you able to use tray 5 in the driver?. have you tried in PS and PCL?

you had said earlier you are not able to select tray 5 when the job comes to command workstation, is that correct?

Yesterday Xcopytech told me that the fact that I have SP2 it already includes the composite patch. Also I have tried all the XP drivers I can find on the Xerox page including the Win 2000 one as well as one I got from the RIP itself, all give the same issue.

download composite patch from xerox site, install it and then download driver for fiery x12 ver 1.5 vith composite patch.

maybe your print driver is different then fiery system software version

Yes, that's right, copying all sizes and thicknesses fine, printing any size or thickness not working

let me get this right , you can copy from tray 5 in any size , any thickness. You cannot print from Tray 5 from a4 to 12x18 any thickness. is that correct?

Hi David, yes I can copy to 12x18". This morning I also tried to do an align trays on tray 5 from Workstation just to see if it would work, it didn't.

are you able to select 12*18 on tray 5 in copy mode . you might have to activate the extended paper size option in the service mode

Thanks, I'll stop the download right away

do not instal composite patch
composite patch is for version 1.5 not for 1.5 sp2

ver 1.5 sp2 is newer and have composite patch in installation files.

        I haven't tried working on the connector but I realised that the bybass works just fine when I copy. I've tried all the drivers that I've found for Windows XP on X's site plus the one that was on the fiery itself. No joy.
I've got the X12 v. 1.5 SP2 with the following patches installed:
Could it be needing a patch like the composite patch (over 400MB)?
