If you see your jobs printing, then I assume you're able to open the printer OK. If thats not the case, there's something not configured correctly.

If you can open the printer OK, but nothing is printing, try printing something with plain text as a test. No PCL codes. Make sure that you can print that OK. If that works, then then it's possible that your printer does not support RAW PCL commands. If it doesn't work, then you're back to a configuration issue. Try configuring the printer additionally as a second printer without the RAW, and see if you can print to it.

I've found HP has some newer laser printers that are competitively priced, however they don't have inherent PCL support, but rather rely on Windows to to act as an interpreter. If you have one of those printers, sending RAW PCL codes will not function correctly, and you'll get nothing from the printer.

At some point in time, consider switching from RAW printing to cooked mode printing. You'll find it much easier to draw boxes, do shading, change colors, set fonts and sizing etc. than it is in RAW mode. You'll also have a greater choice of printers to choose from, and you'll have access to printer dimensions and formatting data from your Comet program that you can't get from RAW mode.
