Enabling PPDS on Lexmark MS510dn

Enabling Personal Printer Data Stream (PPDS) on a Lexmark MS510dn is pretty well hidden. None of the first two suggestions by Lexmark worked on this model. (Suggestion 1, suggestion 2.)

You need to send the printer a PJL command like this one:

00000000  1b 25 2d 31 32 33 34 35  58 40 50 4a 4c 20 44 45  |.%-12345X@PJL DE|
00000010  46 41 55 4c 54 20 4c 50  50 44 53 3d 4f 4e 0a 1b  |FAULT LPPDS=ON..|
00000020  25 2d 31 32 33 34 35 58                           |%-12345X|
00000028
