IBM warrants that each

Machine

1)

is

free

 

from

 

defects

in

materials

 

and

workmanship

 

and 2) conforms to IBM's Official Published Specifications. IBM calculates the

 

 

 

expiration of the warranty period

from

the

 

Machine's Date of Installation. The date

 

your receipt is the Date of Installation,

unless

IBM

or

 

your

re-seller

informs

you

 

otherwise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the warranty period, IBM or

your

re-seller

will

provide

warranty

service

unde

 

type of service designated for the Machine and

will

manage

and

install

engineering

 

changes that apply to the Machine. IBM or

your

re-seller

 

will

 

specify

the

type

of

 

service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a feature, conversion, or upgrade, IBM

or

your re-seller may require that the

 

Machine

on

which

it is

installed

be

1)

the

 

designated, serial-numbered Machine and

 

at an engineering-change

level compatible

with

 

the

feature,

conversion,

or

upgrade.

 

Some of these transactions (called “Net-Priced” transactions)

may

include

additional

 

 

parts and associated replacement parts that

 

are

 

provided

on

an

exchange

basis. All

 

removed

parts

become

the property

of

IBM

and

must

be

returned

to

IBM.

 

 

 

Replacement parts assume the remaining warranty of the parts they replace.

If

a

Machine

does

not

function

as

warranted during

the

warranty

period,

IBM or y

re-seller will repair

or

replace

it

without charge.

If

IBM

or your re-seller is u

so,

you

may

return

it

to your

place of purchase

and

your

money

will be

refunded

obtain

warranty

service

for

the Machine, you should contact

your re-seller or call

IBM. In

the

United

States

or

Canada,

or IBM customer

technical

support

at

1-800-358-6661

from 8:00

a.m.

to 8:00 p.m, Eastern Standard

 

Time. You may be required to present proof of purchase.

 

 

 

 

Depending

on the Machine, the service

may

be

1) mail-in repair

at

IBM's

Depot

location

(called

Depot Mail-in

Repair), 2)

a “Repair” service at your

location (called “On-site”

a

“Repair”

service

at one

of

IBM's

or

a

re-seller's service

locations

(called

“Carry-i

4)“Exchange” service, either On-site or Carry-in.

When a type of service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or your re-seller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours. The

replacement

may not be

new, but will be

in

good

working order.

It is your

responsibility to:

 

 

 

 

1. Obtain authorization

from the owner

(for

example, your lessor) to have IBM or you

re-seller

service a

Machine

that you

do

not

own;

2. Where applicable, before service is provided:

a. Follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request

 

 

procedures

that

IBM

or your re-seller provide,

 

 

 

 

 

b. Secure

all

programs,

data,

and funds

contained

in

a Machine,

 

 

 

c. Inform

IBM

or

your

re-seller

of

changes

in a

Machine's location,

and

 

d. For

a Machine with exchange service, remove all features, parts, options,

 

alterations,

and

attachments

not

under warranty service. Also, the

Machine

 

 

must

be

free

of any legal

obligations

or

restrictions that

prevent its

exchange

 

and

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. If the machine is

not

shipped

in an IBM box, be

responsible

for

loss

of, or da

to,

a

Machine

in

transit

when you are responsible for the transportation charges.

4. Be

responsible

for

any

damage resulting from improper packing of a Machine sent

to

IBM

for

“Depot

Mail-in

Repair”

or

“Exchange.”

 

 

 

 

 

Extent of Warranty

IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.

Misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, improper

maintenance

by

you, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible

may void

the

warranties.

Safety Precautions

Electrical Safety

This printer is inspected and listed by recognized national testing laboratories, such Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) in the U.S.A. and Canadian Standards

Association (CSA) in Canada. Listing of a product by a national testing laboratory indicates that the product is designed and manufactured in accordance with national requirements intended to minimize safety hazards. IBM equipment meets a very high standard of safety in design and manufacture. Remember, however, that this product

operates under conditions of high

electrical potentials and heat

generation,

both of

which are

functionally

necessary.

 

 

 

Because the paper and toner used in the printer can burn, you

should take

normal

precautions

to prevent

fire. These precautions include common-sense

measures, such

as keeping

potentially

combustible

materials (for example, curtains

and chemicals)

away from the printer, providing adequate ventilation and cooling, limiting unattended operation, and having trained personnel available and assigned to the printer.

Printer Drivers

Before you can print from your

PC

or

workstation to

your printer, you need

to install

right printer

driver

on your system. The Network Printer 17 includes diskettes

which

contain

PCL5e

printer

drivers

for

the

following

systems:

 

 

Ÿ

Windows

3.1,

Windows 3.11,

Windows

for

Workgroups

3.11, Win-OS/2

 

Ÿ

Windows 95

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ÿ

Windows

NT

3.51,

Windows

NT 4.0

 

 

 

 

 

Ÿ

Ÿ AIX 3.2.5, AIX 4.1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notes:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. For your printer driver to

work

effectively,

you

must indicate to your printer dr

what

features

are

installed

on

your

printer,

for

example,

what

trays

are

installed,

and

how

much

memory

is

installed. Therefore,

after

you install

a

driver,

make

sure

you update it to indicate

the

features

installed

on your printer. Also, if

you

ins

(or

remove)

a

feature

at a

later

date,

make sure you

update

your

printer

drive

2. Each operating system has unique driver installation procedures. For specific

 

 

installation instructions, see the driver installation

documentation

for your

operating

system

and

the Readme

file

on

the

diskette

that

includes the

driver

 

of

your

Memory Requirements

Table 1 on page 4

shows the

minimum memory requirements for Network Printer 17

based on various functional requirements.

 

Notes:

 

 

 

 

 

1. The PAGEPROT menu item is

available

on

the PCL Menu, the PostScript (PS)

Menu, and the IPDS Menu. It determines whether or not the printer uses

compression when

it

prints

complex

pages.

Ÿ PAGEPROT=AUTO—the printer uses compression when it runs into memory

constraints. This

can reduce print

speed.

ŸPAGEPROT=ON—the printer does not use compression and therefore requires more memory.

Chapter 1. About Your Printer3

2.Context Saving allows the printer

 

to

remember

information

about the

current

data

stream when it switches back

and forth from one job

type (PostScript or PCL5e) to

another. (Network Printer 17 always

does

context

saving for IPDS.) For PCL5e,

 

this

includes

information

about

 

downloaded permanent fonts, macros, and

 

 

user-defined patterns. For PostScript, this

includes

all

of

the

information

found in

the

PostScript

VM

allocation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The

Memory

Configuration

(MEMCONFIG)

Menu provides two

menu

items,

PCL

 

 

 

SAVE and PS SAVE, which allow you

to

set

context

saving on or off for each data

stream. These menu items are displayed only if

there

is

enough

memory

in

the

printer to permit context saving. The PS SAVE menu

item

is

displayed only

if

the

PostScript

SIMM

is

installed.

Using Network Printer

Resource

Utility

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Network Printer Resource Utility

(NPRU) is a utility that enables administrators

download fonts and overlays (PCL macros

and

PostScript

overlays)

to the

printer.

Using NPRU, the network administrator

can select PCL Intellifonts, TrueType fonts,

PostScript

Type

1

fonts,

and

PCL or

PostScript

overlays

 

on

a workstation

for

download.

These

resources can

be

downloaded

to

memory

(DRAM)

on

 

the printer, or to the flash

or a

hard

drive,

if

these

options

are installed the

 

printer.

 

 

 

 

The network administrator can provide

a network address for the NPRU database of

downloaded

resources

 

to

workstation

users. Those users can then use the printer

driver to connect to the database, enabling them to

 

select

downloaded

fonts and

overlays

from

within

their

applications.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The NPRU is a separate program that uses

the

printer

programs

to

perform t

download function. For more information
