Question about IBM 4232 Matrix Printer
Our trusty 4232 has recently started to give a forms jam error for no apparent reason. The paper seems to feed properly and sometimes a stop/start will get it going. More often than not, it will print a couple of lines then give the error. Sometimes it will be fine again. This error seems to come and go. Sometimes it prints ok, then other times it just won't print more than a couple lines before erroring out.
There are 2 paper sensors in the 4232 printer. the first is the most obvious and is a large black sensor found at the front of the printer and the paper is fed through it. the next sensor is on the printhead carriage assembly. its rather small and can be easy over seen. the sensor is just to the right of the printhead assembly. Clean both sensors and make sure they are properly locked into their sensor homes and this should take care of your problems. If not then it might be time to replace those sensors.

If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.
Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.
