900 Error Code service check

1 Printer POR
Turn the printer off and on several times. If Error Code 900 continues
to display, go to step 2.

2 System board
Make sure the system board is properly seated in connector J7 on
the interconnect board.
Turn the machine off and on several times, waiting a few minutes
between power on and power off.
If Error Code 900 continues to display, go to step 3.

3 Factory defaults
Restore factory defaults. See “Restore EP Factory Defaults” on
page 3-18. This resets the non-critical areas of the user NVRAM. If
Error Code 900 continues to display, go to step 4.

Usually with this error the program checksum for the printer controller is corrupt or the data controller memory is corrupted.

You can try redownloading the program into the printer or it's possible it also has bad Flash Memory.

P62 error code

The IBM 6400 printer uses internal programming software that is specific to the printer based on installed interfaces and graphics options. This software resides in flash memory and when the printer is first powered on the software is executed. During this process it initializes the various processors on the controller board, initializes the optional interface cards, and then loads the necessary operating settings into dram. If the programming software becomes corrupt it will fail during startup, giving you the DC Program not valid error or a number of other error messages. The solution to this is a reflash of the printer. Unfortunately, the flash software is proprietary to IBM and they will not distribute it to anybody. The only way to get the printer reflashed is by calling IBM and having one of their engineers reflash the printer.
