Might not find any anymore, IBM has discontinued and no longer supports the IBM 6400 series printers and or any printers at all. If you need some support or printer parts please contact me. Rory 708--597-4222
The IP address is usually assigned by your router using DHCP. I assume you are trying to print to the printer from your PC and it won't go. Go into your router using IE and look for the IP address assigned to the printer and write it down. Exit IE.
Next, go into Control Panel>Printers and choose the IBM printer. Go to Properties and choose Configure Port. Enter the correct IP address, hit apply and exit. You should be able to print to the IBM now.
Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?
To "unlock" the operator panel on the IBM 6400 Line Matrix Printer, depress the Scroll Up and Scroll Down keys at the same time. On the IBM 6500 Line Matrix Printer, depress the Return and Enter keys at the same time.This acts as a toggle; if locked this action will unlock the panel, ifunlocked this action will lock the panel. The operator panel willindicate briefly which function is being performed. The printer powersup with the operator panel "locked."
IBM does not manufacture printers any more, they outsourced that to other places like Lexmark & ProPrinter, so we have to figure out which outsource place is relevant & what name they have for whatever corresponds to 6400 driver.
