General Statement on Print Quality
During the life of the printer, components are subject to wear based on usage. Printers continuously operating at or near the maximum duty cycle may require service for replacement of these components to ensure high quality printing and good performance throughout the life of the printer.
Customer-replaceable maintenance items are recommended every 150,000 pages for the fuser and 105,000 pages for the ITU.
The Infoprint Color 1220 performs an automatic calibration under the following conditions:
A manual calibration can be initiated by selecting "Color Adjust" from the Utilities Menu.
Color and Black and White Printer Controls
The Infoprint Color 1220 will offer several controls that will allow the user or Printer / Network Administrator to direct the preferred output to be color or black and white.
A choice to print a color job in black and white is available in Infoprint Color 1220 Drivers. Printing jobs in color is the default setting.
Allows users not utilizing an Infoprint Color 1220 Driver to print a color job in black and white by selecting Black and White from the menu. The selections are color (default setting) and black and white. "Print Mode" is located under the Color Menu. These Op panel selections are ignored when using an Infoprint Color 1220 PostScript or PCL Driver for Windows.
Printer Usage modes are set to control the starting position of the Intermediate Transfer Unit (ITU) and how the printer software controls its position depending on the color content of the print job and/or the Infoprint Color 1220 Driver or "Print Mode" selection (this applies only to simplex printing, the ITU stays engaged during duplex). There are two selections: Max Speed and Max Yield (default setting). "Printer Usage" is located under the Setup Menu.
Processing a significant number of black pages with the ITU engaged may reduce the life of the color photoconductors and may affect the ultimate life of the color print cartridges (the photoconductor is an integral part of the cartridge).
Maximum print speed is obtained when the Driver and Print Mode are set to color (default settings) and Printer Usage is set to Max Speed. Any other selections can reduce throughput depending on the job content and the selection. It takes approximately one second to lower the ITU and approximately six seconds to raise it. The following table summarizes the effect of selections on the ITU movement.
Black and White Lock
This feature allows Printer/Network Administrators to "lock" the Infoprint Color 1220 printer in a mode that will only print black and white with the ITU disengaged. This feature can not be overridden with any other menu or driver selection. "Black and White Lock" is located under the Configuration Menu.

Differences Between These Printer's IPDS and Previous IBM Printers
The Infoprint Color 1220 and 1228 printers have a different level IPDS support than the previous IBM workgroup printers. Some key differences are:
Details on Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe Emulation
These affordable Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe provide configuration flexibility and compatibility for AFP/IPDS or SCS printing over TCP/IP to LAN printers. These Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe are compatible with IBM mainframe or IBM iSeries applications that generate SCS (LU1) output or with applications that output AFP/IPDS through Print Services Facility (PSF).
IBM continues to make it easy for IS/IT managers to have an affordable printing solution in a distributed network or on a LAN for applications or software that generate AFP/IPDS or SCS. This includes:
With a card and the standard Ethernet network port or a MarkNet print server using TCP/IP, the printer becomes an IBM host workstation printer capable of printing AFP/IPDS or SCS documents from an iSeries or System/390 computer.
With the appropriate host software and one of these options, the IBM printer emulates an IBM mainframe or iSeries host printer. See the compatibility section for details.
With the TN3270E and TN5250E extended Telnet protocol support in these options, the printer emulates one TN3270E printer session and up to 4 TN5250E printer sessions using the LU1 SCS data stream over TCP/IP. This is supported directly from an iSeries or from a mainframe using TCP/IP or through any TN3270E capable gateway that supports TN3270E according to RFC 2355. The DSC/DSE or SCS data streams over LU3 or LU0 are not supported. The Telnet protocol function is only supported with through the standard Ethernet network port or with the MarkNet N2000 print servers. See the compatibility section for more details.
For IPDS emulation, the card supports resident scalable fonts and 300, 600, 1200 image quality or 1200 dpi (except Infoprint 1145) print resolutions. The resolution is selected through an IPDS MENU setting. This setting determines the print resolution of IPDS text, graphics, bar code, scalable image and scalable font data.
The printer can be configured to take advantage of additional RAM, and when attached to a LAN through the standard Ethernet port or a MarkNet print server, can save IPDS resources to improve performance for complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays or page segments.
The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. SBCS fonts can now be downloaded, captured and saved to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. The US Postal Bar code POSTNET font and the Euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS.
The Euro currency symbol is also supported for the SCS, PostScript and PCL 6 emulations.
AFP/IPDS Font and Typestyle Support:
The Card for IPDS supports resident scalable fonts. The font complement with 12 typestyles supports the IBM Font Collection (Core Int erchange Scalable Font Sets - Courier, Times New Roman and Helvetica faces).
The following languages are supported:
The font complement for the IBM Coordinated Scalable Font Set provides support for Latin 1 languages in 3 Letter Gothic (medium, bold and italic) and 3 Prestige (medium, bold and italic) scalable typestyles. Scalable OCR-A and OCR-B typestyles are supIntl-Univers-Boldported.
The following fonts are supported using bitmaps: APL 12, Boldface PS, Boldface Italic PS, OCR-A 10, OCR-B 10 and Prestige PS. The OCR bitmap fonts have different FGIDs than the scalable font versions.
The IBM 4028 Compatibility Font set consists of 22 fixed pitch typestyles supported by bitmap fonts. Times Roman typestyles (13) are created from Times New Roman scalable typestyles of the same weight and style.
The IBM 3812/3816 Compatibility Font set consists of 35 typestyles supported by bitmap fonts at 240 dpi.
Fonts can also be captured dynamically and saved (cached) to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. A captured font then appears as a printer resident font. If many fonts are used in the jobs that are printed, capturing fonts and saving them in the printer will decrease network traffic on busy networks.
PSF defines fonts as either public or private. In order to capture a font, it must be marked as eligible and public. A private font is not eligible to be captured.
Note:Do not mark sensitive fonts such as signatures and MICR fonts as eligible to be captured. Check the font licensing information before a font is made eligible for capture.
If a font is to be captured, the appropriate files for the coded font or character set and code page resources must all be marked.
The printer must also be defined as capable to capture fonts in PSF. For bitmap fonts, the font resolution of the font captured must match the resolution of the emulated printer for it to be recognized by the printer as a printer resident font. For example, the IBM 3812 and 3816 printer emulations require 240 dpi fonts. The IBM 4028 printer emulation requires 300 dpi fonts.
On the iSeries, Font capture is supported by OS/400 V4R5 or later. To define the printer as capable to capture, in the PSF configuration (CRTPSFCFG/CHGPSFCFG), set FNTCAPTURE (*YES).
Eligible fonts must be marked. Display the font attributes to identify marked fonts (DSPFNTRSCA). Verify that *YES is specified for the Font Capture attribute. Use Create Font Resource (CRTFNTRSC) to mark font resources from other systems. Use Change Font Resource (CHGFNTRSC) to mark fonts that are not marked as eligible.
For a font to be eligible for capture, it must have non zero fields for FGID and GCSGID. Any fonts captured and saved in the printer's hard disk or flash memory are saved across instances of the writer.
Mainframe (OS/390 or z/OS)
Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS. Use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked. The IBM Font Collection fonts are already marked as eligible for capture.
Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS 2.2.1 with APAR DY43969. With PSF for OS/390 or z/OS, use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked.
SCS Font and Typestyle Support
The SCS emulation uses the default resolution set using the Quality menu from the printer's operator panel. The SCS emulation in the card uses PCL fonts from the printer firmware. If the printer is set to 600 dpi, then all SCS data is printed with 600 dpi PCL fonts. It is possible to imbed PCL and PJL commands into the SCS data stream and pass them to the printer utilizing ASCII transparency.
On the iSeries, fonts can be selected by specifying the FGID (Font Global Identifier) or by characters per inch (CPI). With IBM mainframes, only CPI font selection is possible.
A parameter in the SCS data stream (Final Form Text (Level 2) Document Content Architecture (FFT (L2) DCA)) Page Presentation media (PPM) command is used to control Duplex printing.
These 6 fonts are included in SCS emulation as 300 dpi bitmap fonts: OCR-B (3), Boldface Italic (155), Boldface (159), Essay (160), Essay Bold (163) and Document (175).
For the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, IPDS is supported under the IPDS MENU settings and SCS is supported under the SCS/TNe MENU settings.
Note:Microcode updates and User's Guides are available from the IBM Web site. See the appropriate User's Guide for configuration instructions.
Note:When the printer is emulating an IBM printer, the function supported depends on the IBM host software.
For Direct Network Attachment - Hardware Compatibility
When the printer contains an optional Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, it attaches to a network using one of the following MarkNet print servers:
The optional MarkNet print servers support Token-Ring (4Mbps or 16 Mbps), Ethernet 10BaseT/10Base2 and Ethernet 100BaseTX/10BaseT with the following Network Operating Systems: Novell NetWare (including NetWare Directory Services - NDS and NDPS), Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server, Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server, TokenTalk and EtherTalk, and the following UNIX platforms: Caldera OpenLinux, IBM AIX, Compaq Tru64 (Digital), HP-UX, Red Hat Linux, SCO OpenServer, UnixWare, SGI IRIX, Sun Solaris, Sun Solaris x86, SuSE Linux and TurboLinux.
SCS LU1 Printing using a Gateway and TCP/IP
If TN3270E capable SNA gateway software supports the TN3270E protocol according to RFC 2355, then a TN3270e session can be used to print SCS jobs directly from a mainframe or iSeries. Examples of these gateways are:
For Direct Twinaxial Attachment - Hardware Compatibility
When the printer contains an optional Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe and the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS with a twinaxial cable, the printer attaches to the following IBM hardware:
For Direct Coaxial Attachment - Hardware Compatibility
When the printer contains the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe and the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS with a coaxial cable, the printer attaches to the following IBM hardware:
Note:Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS microcode level H01-9072 or later is required.
Note:The Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS provides SCS data stream support for a coax connection that requires both IPDS and SCS data stream support when using the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe.
