Incorrect page size when printing PCL with Chinese through nloo

I am trying to print the attached file to a LaserJet 8150DN from HP-UX 11.11.
The printer was setup using JetAdmin and uses the nloo.PCL5 model file. (The report may contain Chinese characters.)
I have successfully printed plain text to the printer from the server.
However, if the file contains PCL (as is the case for the attached file), lprpp.nlio puts a page break in the wrong spot and cause text (headers and footers in my case) to print on a separate page.
If I artificially increase the page size via "lp -otl73", the attached file prints correctly.
Does lprpp.nlio not support files with PCL or do I have something setup incorrectly?

if possible do a cold reset to the printer (refer printer manual) . Also look at the PCL technical reference manuals

The printer is not adding the pagefeed. I can preserve the output from lprpp.nlio and see the pagefeed in the file.
I believe the PCL is also fine because I can print the file correctly using a non-nloo model file through HP-UX or Windows.

Hi Tim,

May I know which command you used to print the PCL file?

We also need to print PCL files, and I can print PCL file as a test page from the JetDirect, but not from "lp" command.

Really appreciate if you can give some hints.

Thanks,

Cindy

Hi Cindy-
It has been a while since I worked on this.
If memory serves...
I replaced the driver for my printer (chinese) in /usr/spool/lp/interface/model.orig/chinese with /usr/spool/lp/model/PCL5.nloo.
Then, I used lp -dchinese -ozh_CN.hp15CN file.
