ABAP/SAPScript Blank Page Printing after each print.

I have written an ABAP program that utilizes a sap script for its output.

It is being printed on a EPSON DFX-9000. It is a tractor feed so the pages are continuous and it senses the perforation for the page separations.

The result is 3 single 1 page outputs in the printing spool/output requests, which is the correct result. After each print, a blank page is fed through the printer.

I have tried to change the paper size within sap to different sizes, I have moved all of the sapscript windows into the middle of the page to make sure nothing was running over.

There are no new-page calls used anywhere with the sapscript. It is not pushing the main window to the next page. The print function is called only the 3 times, which is correct. And the printing spools show 1 page for each of the 3 prints, but 2 pages come out.

When I try to print this to a laser printer, the issue is not there and it does not print blank pages.

I am trying to either figure out if this is a coding issue on my end, and if so what are some possible steps to correct this, or if it is an issue with the printer itself.

I also have tried to print to another Epson 9000, but it produces the same issue. This does not rule out a printing issue, as both printers are new and have / had the same configuration.

Thank you very much for your time/assistance.
