IBM 6400 Dot Matrix Printer - Need Drivers for Windows XP

Hello,

I purchase a used IBM 6400 Model 15 dot matrix printer. The printer is printing 3 pages per minute (real slow). The printed pages have the following specs:

1) Letter size
2) RTF format
3) Courier New Fonts - Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14

With the delivered IBM drivers, the printer prints 21 pages per minute but with green bar 132 column pages.

I've googled for Windows XP and Windows Server 2005 print drivers but I have not had any success in finding the drivers. Please help.

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?

Want to print draft mode in dot matrix printer in XP


Not all dot matrix printers will print in draft mode. When operating from DOS it was usually necessary to send an Esc(ape) code such as ESC @ in ASCII code. I don't think it can be done from Windows; in fact some windows programs will not even talk to a dot matrix printer. Some printers have one or two banks of DIP switches, but before changing them you need to read the manual to see what they do. There could be one which allows Draft MOde.

1. Dot matrix as the name suggests prints in small dots. The print out u get in railway tickets. 2. Laser printers are very speedy and have clear and sharp printing. There is no comparison b/w a laser printer and dot matrix. If dot matrix is 1st GEnaration than laser is atleast 10 generations ahead
