Ibm IBM Laser Printer 4019

HP emulation mode on an old IBM 4019

Please......I have scoured the net and cannot find this piece of information anywhere. How do I setup HP emulation mode on a IBM 4019(or 4029 or Laserprinter E)????? It is stuck in ASCII mode....Ahhhhhhhhh!

Any and all help appreciated.
Found it. Hold down the font button when powering on the printer.

How do I tell if it was successful? Nothing on the display seems to change.

There seems to be no way to get this printer to work in normal mode under Linux. Any other suggestions?

Hold down the "Orientation" key when first turning on the power. When printer is in it's ready mode, if you push the "Orientaion" key, you should get a "3" in the status window showing that the printer is in the HP mode. - Anonymous
