Question about IBM 4230 Model 102 Matrix Printer
I purchased a new printer board for my IBM 4230-102 IPDS printer. The original board was giving a operator panel failure and we tracked back to a printer board. The board was easy to install. However when trying to print it comes out as gibberish, almost looks like a partially formed word. I had another board sent to me hoping that this other was broken, and still the same thing after 2 boards. I have checked all the settings and made sure they were exactly the same as all of the other 4230's here. I checked cables, tried another print head, and even placed the board in another printer and it still is doing the same. Has anyone run into this before? Thanks Sin
If it prints, but it is gargabe, either the cable has a set of pins crossed or the Baud rate is incorrect on the card.
