Thanks for the reply Peter. Whet you are refering to is that the printer
buffer will be holding on to the data until a FF is sent. The strange thing
here is that the jobs are queued but not sent at all. If a job was in the
buffer and if I switch off the printer and on it again usually garbage will
be printed, but this is a bit different. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I think it could be hardware related.
