A Mod 10 printer working with HP NPS on centronics input prints normally. Then after 5 or 15 or 30 pages printing stops and printer
is always ready. No more communication indication lit.No printer messages. To recover, a power cycle needed.
Is the problem on the Printer board ?

usually u get those on mod 14's and up and it could be a few things (i would try in this order from lowest to highest priced) coil temp needs to be set, hammer bank cables, shuttle and or cmx bd need to be replaced. Rory 708-597-4222
Has this USB to Centronics cable worked in the past, but has now stopped? The reason I ask is that there are two kinds of parallel ports, and so two kinds of USB-to-Centronics adapators. One is unidirectional, and one is bidirectional. If your plotter requires bidirectional, then it won't work properly with unidirectional.
Hello Edward, Have you tried reseating your memory yet? If so try disconnecting your 10/100 card and turn it on. If this doesn’t work you can also try resetting your defaults. If none of this works, it might be that you CMX has lost some of its boot configurations and needs to be reflashed or possibly fixed. Depends. If you have any questions please contact me, we offer free technical support and carry new and used IBM Printers and Parts.

Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?
Hold cancel+stop while powering on the printer to enter the maint menu. You can wipe the firmware from there. You need to have a copy of the microcode firmware to reload. If you are uncertain about these instructions, you absolutely should not attempt it.
