Printing - Banner/Seperation Pages

By MoodySkipper ·
I have a Win98 machine on a rather old Novell 3.12 network. There is currently about 50 machines on this network, but for some unknown reason, one machine in particular has a Banner and Seperation page come out on the printer every time anything is printed.
I have looked at the printer properties on this machine, but can't even find where to turn off the Banner page.
Any help advice would be greatly appreciated as the user comes to me on a daily basis to see if I have found an answer.

I'm assuming it is a network printer we're dealing with. Have you tried updating his/her printer drivers? (Uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling it using have disk with the latest Win98 drivers from the vendor)
P.S. Is it all applications or just Microsoft ones?

The banner printing is a default setting in NW 3.12

You can turn it off using the nobanner option when configuring your printer.

If you used the nobanner command in netware, then check your print driver options in your OS to make sure it is not enabled there.

Here are a couple of resources you may find helpful:

Good luck!

Since we don't know any details of your printer configuration, this article may also be of assistance:

What are the brand and model number of the printer?

In the Windows 98 printer properties should be a tab titled "Printer Settings". Select it, then in the middle should be a section titled "Banner settings". Deslect the box for "enable banner".

Hello,

Right click on Network Neighborhood, go down to Properties, hilight Novell Netware Client and click on Properties. Next go to the Default Capture Tab properties and you'll see the check boxes with checks in "Form Feed" - uncheck that - if"Auto Endcap" is checked then uncheck that and finally if you see "Enable Banner" is checked, why then uncheck that as well to disable the banner page. Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Krunch
