Hi, I have a problem with my Ibm lexmark 2381 plus. I have installed it and worked fine for a while. I use it with my AS400 application. My problem is that when I print from my AS400 session, using tractor paper, the printer doesn't recognise the end of page so I can tear off the page.
How can I fix this setting

Based on your description, the printer is working, it is not a form issue, the printer head is good, an adjustment might be needed and it works, there is no reason to replace the Lexmark 2381plus printer even if it is 7 years old (not unless you would want to).
To the faint printing on the last of the 3 pages:
the take-up spool/wheel drawing the ribbon is not working (most likely). The ribbon is not moving hence the printer head is not striking fresh ribbon area. Check the ribbon cartridge, it may be stuck or the driving spindle where the ribbon's take-up spool/wheel locks into. It may need a bit of cleaning and/or lubrication;
the printer head is slightly adjusted away from the paper. Normally, there is a mechanical lever/adjustment that sets how many paper & duplicates are fed. Adjust for 1 only.
Hi, It's been a while since I worked on these, so I'll go out on a limb (as far as my rating goes) and say that the few times I've seen that happen usually results from a bad network card. Now you may not be using a network card, so if your not then I'm not really sure what would cause that to happen on the printer side. The environments that I've seen that happen in are with an AS400 and the network card just gave out. You most likely tried this, but you might want to make sure that the computer isn't using one driver for both printers. Good luck.
I can get the P5010 printing on your AS400... But, there are to many things to check without knowing a little more about your environment.
If you can't ping the PTX P5010 from the AS400 or a PC, then you have a printer configuration problem. Take the printer offline and hit the Print Config button. and then the enter on OPs Panel. Then post top or first paragraph of the config. so I can look at...
__________________________________________________________ If you can ping the printer from the AS400... You will need to create a remote out que on AS400... command is crtoutq then hit F4...
if you can't post the printer config here... Fax it 972-233-7306, Attn: P5010, Toby
