Unable to Staple IPDS Print Jobs from AS400

What you will see

The IPDS jobs are sent and printed successfully from the AS400 machine; however, the printed pages are not stapled. This happens even when settings in the IPDS Output Bin Mapping are set correctly and stapling is configured in the Print File.

Affected printers

This issue applies to the following Lexmark models with the firmware code EC2 or below:

  • MS71x
  • MS81x
  • MX71x
  • MX81x

An x denotes any number within a given printer model series.

Recommended solution

Update the printer’s DLEfirmware code to EC3 or the latest.

To obtain this version, please contact your next level or support or Lexmark Technical Support and reference this article ID. Support personnel can assist with the update procedure if necessary.

DLE base and engine codes are not bundled. Please make sure that the engine code matches the base code.


The IPDS finishing options are supported starting with the EC3 firmware.
