Ibm IBM Selectric I

IBM 4029-030 laser printer

Moe, I am unable to get this printer to communicate with my computer and don't have setup manual. Ran printer diagnostics and appears to test ok except for wrap test which had a message that parallel and serial failed. Emulation/mode choices are IBM ppds, PCL4, and postscript, I'm not sure which one to select( running Win 98). Printer interface is set at parallel. Cable is fine since I hooked up HPII & it was ok. Computer port configuration is ok. What am I missing?
Try setting to PCL4 and using the HP Laserjet Series II driver. It's on the Win 98 disk. If that doesn't work, you probably have a bad formatter board.
