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?

Cutting letters off in 2 spots down whole report


IF trouble in first row - you ribbon is tracking wrong - replace

You may have junk in the ribbon mask also. No parts needed for that. You need to rotate the hammerbank. Remove ribbon and black cover, the whole shuttle will tipback toward you when you unscrew the allen wrench - watch out for the paper tractors they will hang on the ribbon mask. The ribbon mask is held on by magnetic field - just pop off carefully. clean holes with toothbrush and water - dry. (if the trouble is a bad actuator - 4 allen screws to remove a group of hammers - if using short paper - you can use a group from the end of the printer). reverse to fix

Error 058 Shuttle Jam on an IBM 6400 Matrix printer


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

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 .
