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.

Normal 0 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 over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

IBM 6400 Matrix Printer is printing twice over a previous line it seem on to happen once or twice per page of text there seems to be no issue with the tractor feed no drag on the paper source and the test...


Might be your gap is set to high. try moving the right lever from A to B for example and see if it clears it out. Also might be your parallelism, you will find to hex screws on the right and left of the platen assy that u can adjust. This will balance out the shuttle if one side is printing to light and another is printing to dark. Rory 708-597-4222

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?

The problem was due to a block/clogged EOF(End of Forms) sensor. I resolved it by using a can of compressed air to clean/remove any foreign debris from the sensor.

058 shuttle jam


Hi,
This can happen for a number of reasons.:-

a. The print mechanism needs to be adjusted ( You'll need a technician to do this if yu are not familiar.

b. Something is clogging the print mechanism, eg Old ribbon residue, or sticky labels etc.

c. The paper thickness lever is set to incorrect setting . Try adjusting it out .

IBM 6400 model i10 print problem


It's likely a "hammer" is defective. This can be caused by
a build up of ink under the ribbon shield and/or around the hammer "fret" itself or the fret is physically broken. Remember
that this is a "shuttle" printer and each fret covers anywhere from
one to three characters depending on model. Some cover fractions of characters as well. The problem will appear as either
data missing on the left or right margin or a blank column of missing data going down the page.

A technician is required to solve all of these problems as the
shuttle assembly must be removed.
