You unlock the operator keys by pressing the up and down arrows at the same time.

Dont forget that after you have made your configuration changes you must save them or it will reset to previous settings during power cycle.

How do you change the IP address on an IBM 6400 printer


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.

Trying to use a jet direct box to make this a networked printer.


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."

Wont print on line


You may need to have some driver installed on your PC, that can be downloaded from some IBM printer web site, such as this one:

http://www.infoprintsolutionscompany.com/internet/wwsites.nsf/vwWebPublished/supportdownloads_ww

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.

Hi,
This can happen for a number of reasons.:-

a. The print mechanism needs to be adjusted ( You'll need a technician to do this if yu are not familiar.

b. Something is clogging the print mechanism, eg Old ribbon residue, or sticky labels etc.

c. The paper thickness lever is set to incorrect setting . Try adjusting it out .
