The iR 5000 Page

This page is to assist you with some iR5000 issues


 
 
 
Some problems sent to us by Scot Fraser - All PCL print jobs print out in 11 by 17 booklet mode.
I want to get a hard copy of the Job Logs.
How can I see the actual numbers of pages printed with a Job log?
I need help with the IR5000 scanning feature.
Network Print jobs print with pauses between pages.  Is there a way I can fix this?

 

1.  Some problems sent to us by Scot Fraser - printing without a Canon driver and All PCL print jobs print out in 11 by 17 booklet mode.
Thanks Scot
 

Problem
Solution
Print files sent to the Canon iR5000 that have not been generated by a Canon Windows or Mac print driver (ie: from Unix, DOS or other system) do not print. They do however show up in the copier's print log.
The iR5000 printer setup has the printing contexts of PCL and PS turned off by default for Auto Selection. Turn them on as follows: 
Additional Functions button; Printer Settings; Settings; Auto Select: turn PCL ON, PS ON.
All PCL print jobs print out in 11 by 17 booklet mode.
Booklet must have been turned ON by mistake by someone in the Additional Functions; Printer Settings; Settings. Turn it off. 
Oddly enough, Booklet overrides the Canon PCL printer driver to force 11x17 booklets whereas other settings do not affect the PCL driver. 
The Canon PS driver does not have this problem.

 

2.  I want to get a hard copy of the Job Logs
Currently there is no export Job Log feature.
You can however select the entire log on your screen and paste them into Excel for a hard copy.
 
 

3.  How can I see the actual numbers of pages printed with a Job log?
Currently the only printed page numbers show up in the Department ID print totals.  The actual print job logs do not hold the actual number of pages printed

 
 

4.  I need help with the IR5000 scanning feature.
Please go to the IR Network Scanner page for this information.


 

5.  Network Print jobs print with pauses between pages.  Is there a way I can fix this?
Yes.  The IR5000 has a feature called Print after completing RIP
When this feature is turned on, the IR5000 waits until the entire print job is ripped before the first page is printed
This way, the entire job is printed at once rather with pauses between pages.
Here is how do set it up
