Our IBM 6400 came with a bunch of manuals.

Do you have manuals on yours?

If you need to purchase or download manuals, here is one place you might start to figure out what they cost & where to get what you need.

Ibm 6400-008 with P62 error


P-62 error is DC program not valid. The printer cannot find the controller program or the validation checksum is corrupt.
You can try to reseat the flash (memory simms) but it probably will not help. You need to re-download the program (microcode) to the machine and if it still fails replace the flash with pre-writen flash.

If you need a copy of the microcode and instructions on how to load let me know here (I will try to keep an eye on this post)

How do I program my Uniden BC72XLT race scanner?


1. Press HOLD. Then enter the channel number
where you want to store a frequency, then press
FUNC and PGM. The channel number appears.
2. Use the number keys and to enter the
frequency (including the decimal point) you want
to store.
3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel.
Notes:
• If you entered an invalid frequency in Step 2,
ERROR appears and the scanner beeps three
times. Enter a valid frequency.
• The scanner automatically rounds the entered
number to the nearest valid frequency.
For example, if you enter 151.473 (MHz), your
scanner accepts it as 151.475.

DC PROGRAM NOT VALID


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.

Did you try reflashing this unit and then it came up with this error? If not you might need a reflash or a new CMX controller bd.

If you have any other question please contact me I am an ASR for Printronix and they built the 6400's for IBM so I know the pritner inside and out. I also carry all the parts new and refurbished to fix it.

Please let me know.

Thanks

Xerox 7232 and As400


016-799 is a printer paper conflict error. All you have to do for the AS/400 to print, is to make suree that tray 2 in the printer is set up to do landscape printing. There has to be at least one tray for portrait, and one for landscape in order for the AS/400 to print.

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.
