IBM 4232 Printer Problems

Hey all, I have a 4232 printer that used to print on the large continuous feed paper (15 x 11). However somebody did something to it and its only printing on 9 x 11 continuous feed paper. Is there any way to change this setting back to its original state? I have recalled the default custom set already but it didnt do anything.
Thanks.

Power went off when I tried to print


Would be helpful to know which operating system you are using and whether there where any warning light flashing. For starters review the following solutions.
Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs

Inner Cover was open when you started printing.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. The printer resumes printing.

Inner Cover was opened while printing is in progress.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer.

A page of print data being sent at the time of the error will be erased, so print that page again.

The printer has been printing continuously over a long period.

If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.

In this case, interrupt your print session at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

i_expl.gif Caution

The Print Head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never touch the Print Head or nearby components.

Out of paper.

Make sure that paper is loaded in the selected paper source.

Reload paper if no paper is found in the selected paper source (Auto Sheet Feeder or the Cassette).

If the same paper is loaded in the other paper source, you can switch the paper source with the Paper Feed Switch or the printer driver to continue printing.

If both paper sources have run out of paper, confirm the selected paper source and load paper there.

Printing documents with plenty of photographs or illustrations.

When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer or the computer is processing data. Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.

In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.

i_note.gif Note

If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing may pause to allow the ink to dry.

Ibm 4232 printer 055 machine check msg ?????


While this is not for your specific printer, it is the same error code, and sounds like the printer is from the same series, so it may be of some use if figuring out this problem.

Sounds like the configured paper sized does not match the actual paper page height. So that when it does Top Of Form paper movement the paper stops slightly too low. Doing several form feeds should confirm this. If this is it then reconfigure the paper size to match the paper. Also measure to paper to see if it matches what you want it to be.

Forms jam on IBM 4232


there are 2 paper sensors in the 4232 printer. the first is the most obvious and is a large black sensor found at the front of the printer and the paper is fed through it. the next sensor is on the printhead carriage assembly. its rather small and can be easy over seen. the sensor is just to the right of the printhead assembly. Clean both sensors and make sure they are properly locked into their sensor homes and this should take care of your problems. If not then it might be time to replace those sensors.
