4039-16L and 16L plus Lexmark Laser Printer
The IBM 4039 LaserPrinter features the ability to add duplex capability, and broader connectivity than the 4029 series of IBM LaserPrinters. A PostScript** Level 1 interpreter with 39 Type 1 outline fonts, PCL5, and true 600 x 600 dots per inch (DPI) meet user needs for broader functions as standard features on a compact desktop LaserPrinter. The 4039 LaserPrinter is designed, through integrated network adapter options, for attachment to Token-Ring and Ethernet local area networks, and networks with the Appletalk Network Interface. In addition, direct attachment, via parallel or serial, can be made to IBM Personal Computers, RISC System/6000 and Apple Workstations. The 4039 does not support PPDS.
Model Abstract 4039-16L
The IBM 4039 Model 16L plus LaserPrinter has several enhancements at no additional cost. These enhancements provide the customer with the latest level support for PCL5 and PostScript 2 emulation. A Proprinter emulation program is also provided, enabling the 4039 Model 16L plus to generally support software applications that operate with the IBM Personal Printer Data Stream (PPDS). A new bi-directional set-up utility, MarkVision**, allows the customer to set-up and monitor the printer from a Windows** workstation in a Novell NetWare** environment. No change is made to the machine type and model. The manufacturing part number, however, has been changed. Two additional feature options allow for memory expansion through a 4 Mb flash memory option and a 40 Mb disk option. An upgrade kit for the existing 4039-16L is offered. The upgrade kit allows customers with an existing 4039-16L to include the software enhancements and bring their printer to the plus level. The kit is required for the addition of the 4 Mb flash memory or the 40 Mb disk option to existing 4039-16L.
The IBM 4039 LaserPrinter printer provides the following features:

IBM LaserPrinter 4039 Compatibility with non-IBM Computer Systems
- Printer performance:
The IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus has a maximum rated print engine speed of up to 16 PPM. Print Speed is reduced to up to 8 PPM when printing in 600 DPI Mode. As is the case with most page printers in this class, performance depends on the following:
- Interface to host (parallel and serial, IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus only)
- Interface to host (LocalTalk, IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus only)
- Host system and application
- Complexity and content of the page, and paper size
- Available memory
- Software Compatibility:
The IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus has been tested for software compatibility by IBM for IBM logo software or by the non-IBM software publishers for non-IBM logo software. These tests form the basis for the compatibility results indicated. The testing was done using the currently available version of the software package at the time of testing, or the specific version indicated. Compatibility may not be the same for all versions.
Each of the application software products was tested on one or more members of the IBM Personal Computer family. All applications were not tested with every IBM Personal Computer model, but due to compatibility within the IBM Personal Computer family, similar results may be expected for each IBM Personal Computer or Personal System/2 models on which the application operates.
- Stationery supplies:
Due to the IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus's printing technology, the stationery supplies designed for use with the xerographic copiers should provide satisfactory print quality and feed reliability. Other types of supplies may be suitable for use with the IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus. It is recommended that the users test any particular brand for suitability to their applications. Refer to the IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus User's Guide for complete details on stationery supply specifications.
- Paper feeding
Either the manual input paper tray, the optional Envelope+ feeder, or the 100-Sheet Auxiliary feeder must always be installed on the printer to prevent light reaching the print cartridge, which results in degraded print quality.
The fuser wiper must be installed in the printer for proper operation and reliable print quality.
- Display attachment Laserprinter 4039 16L plus
When attached as an emulated device, full function of the printer is not supported. Functions such as Page Rotation, Font Selection, CPI, LPI, superscript/subscript, and so on may not be supported. Refer to the "Connecting IBM Personal Printers to IBM Systems" manual for attachment information.
- Print Area
IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus printable area is limited to within 4.2 mm (0.167 inches) of the top and bottom edge and to within 6.25 mm (0.25 inches) from the left or right edge of the media. Any information placed within this area will not print (except for A4). For A4 paper, the information is adjusted to fit 80 characters per line at 10 characters per inch.
The compatibility information Presented below is intended to give general guidelines for the attachment of IBM printers to selected non - IBM computer systems.
The IBM printer implements IBM's version of the parallel interface or RS-232 serial interface. IBM has performed limited tests of the IBM printers and the non - IBM computer systems using the appropriate cables and DOS print facilities. There were no problems noted attributable to interface differences.
The only way to insure satisfactory results is for the user to test the specific printer, computer, and software combination against desired results. Hardware RequirementsAttachment Information:
IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus Interface Information
The interface selection is made via the IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus operator panel.
User's Guide for the SA40-0739 1325316 IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus
- High-Speed Parallel Interface
This interface is used for attachment to a compatible system which supports the same 8 bit interface and commands. This interface is also commonly referred to as Centronics parallel and is capable of receiving data up to 150 K bytes per second. The factory default of the printer is the parallel interface.
- High-Speed Serial Interface
This interface is used for attachment to an IBM Personal Computer or a non-IBM personal computer which supports the same interface and commands. It is also used for attachment to some systems. DTR/DSR, DTR and XON/XOFF protocols are supported. This interface supports data transmission rates up to 38,400bps. When the serial interface is selected the factory defaults are 9600 bps baud rate, DTR protocol, 8 data bits, and no parity.
- IBM LaserPrinter 4039 16L plus supports the following LAN interfaces.
- Ethernet IEEE 802.3 10Base2 and 10Base5
- 10Base2 - IEEE 802.3 or Ethernet II
- 10Base5 - IEEE 802.3 or Ethernet II
- Token-Ring IEEE 802.5 4/16 Megabit/second data rate
