Media Type Command

This command sets the print mode required for printing on various
media types.

If no printable data has been sent, this command moves CAP to the
top of form at the left margin of the current page. If printable data has
been sent, the page is closed and printed, and CAP moves to the top
of form at the left margin of the next physical page.

When transparency media is loaded, the printer auto- matically
adjusts the media type to Transparency and the print quality to
Presentation Graphics, regardless of the language or remote-panel
selection.

The Media Type and Print Quality commands always override remote
control panel settings if the printer detects a different type of media
than was requested. It may override these commands and the remote
control panel settings.

Note

This command may override the remote panel. HP recommends
programmatically setting media type, especially in network
environments.
