Question about IBM 4247 Model V03 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Printer setup How do I setup this hand-me-down IBM 4247 Model V03 printer to print on 8 1/2 x 11, 2-part carbonless tractor fed paper for our landscape print delivery tickets. I got it to print a Windows test page with paper aligned to the left, but when we went to print our delivery tickets it wants to print on the right. When I adjusted the tractor feed to the right for printing, I keep getting a load forms message even though the paper is loaded. Pushing start only advances another page and then the message 001 load forms comes back.

Continuous forms paper fed through the front of the printer also uses either the Front Push, Rear Pull, or Push-Pull tractor configurations. Make sure this is set correctly or it will reverse your margins.

It could also be your software. When you print through windows it's using the Microsoft system font controller, but your software could be setting font, margins, and alignment by the settings in the printer not in the driver. So if the first doesn't work, set your system back to align left then go into the printer configuration menu on the device and adjust the margins there.

Tally 2250 gives eject error single


The paper path on the 2250 has changed to the single sheet feeder, I guess you are using tractor fed paper loaded into the standard front tractors, if this is the case you can change the paper path to Tractor 1 in the following way;

1.Power the printer off and disconnect the printer from the computer system.
2.Press and hold down the SETUP button, and power the printer on. Keep the SETUP button held down whilst the printer initialises (this unlocks the printer menu)
3.When the printer has finished initialising release the SETUP button.
4.Make sure that the printer is in Offline mode; press the Online key, if necessary.
5.Remove any paper that may be loaded into the printer.
6.Press the SETUP button
7.Press the button under PAPERPATH (button 3)
8.Press the button under TRACTOR 1 to select the tractor feed
9.Press the ONLUE button to exit the menu.

My IBM 4247 printer is jamming and printing out of alignment. I really need to fix this issue as soon as possible because production is affecte. Your assistance will be well appreciated. Thank you in...


If it prints correctly cold, then starts to fail, check the carrier slide and tube, probably no lubricant there and as it heats up it will bind and fail.

Printer screen message reads turn paper lever then online single Can't get it to print


I guess you are using tractor fed paper, the type of paper with holes down the side.
The problem you have is that the paper path has been changed on the printer to the single sheet feeder rather than the tractor feed, you will need to change this back again via the control panel, this is done something like this;

  1. Put the printer Offline
  2. Press Setup
  3. Press the button under PaperWay
  4. Change this to Tractor 1
  5. Press SET
If the above steps do not work disconnect the printer from the computer then try again.

They are auto switching units. All you have to do is configure it correctly and send a job, it selects the interface your are printing thru.

If you have any questions or if you are looking for parts for this unit please contact me back.
