Question about IBM 6400 Matrix Printer
Each time I try to print on an IBM 6400 printer I get error 058 Shuttle jam. How do I resolve this issue?
The most likely cause is the printhead is tootight.Pull the multiple copy lever on the right hand side back from "A"towards "C"..Keep trying that and it may fix the error code. Now find the real problem. Something may be obstructing the movement of the shuttle asm or the sensor on the shuttle motor may be bad or unplugged. I've never seen one become unplugged on its own but I have forgotten to plug it back in after having the shuttle out of the machine.

I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
