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.

Load error


When trying to print on continuous stationery, the display may show "Online Single Load". This will occur if the printer is expecting to print on single sheet paper even though you may want it to print on continuous paper. To clear the error follow this procedure. • Take the printer off-line by pressing the Online key • Press the Setup key • Press the key under "Paperway" in the display • Select Tractor 1 (or Tractor 2 if fitted/required) • Press the key under "Set" • If the job still refuses to print try loading the printer with a single sheet of paper to clear the command. To do this remove the tractor feed paper and close the cover on top of the tractors but not the outside cover. You will see a guide into which put a single sheet of paper and press the key under "Load" in the display. • The printer should commence printing. If it does not, then press and hold the key under "LF/FF" to eject the single sheet. Now follow the instructions above again to select the Tractor. The display should read "OnLine Tractor Load". Load the tractor fed paper into the Tractors and press the key under "Load". The printer should now be ready to print. Check your software settings for the correct paper path type. Ensure that the display does not show "Manual" otherwise you will have to clear this error in the same manner as you have for Single sheet

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.

And look for the Online Single & Load section
