While this is not for your specific printer, it is the same error code, and sounds like the printer is from the same series, so it may be of some use if figuring out this problem.

Is there a driver for Windows XP for the IBM 4234 SCS printer?


Download a PDF file from IBM:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/printers/pdf/G544-5283-08.pdf

The printer "emulates" several common printers that are supported by Windows XP.

Customer has a IBM 4230 printer with a machine check 055..


Hello,

You are getting a carriage error indication (055). This can be a few things. First, you will have to make sure that your carriage rail is cleaned and there are no obstructions to the print head. Then I would recommend changing out the carriage assembly felts. There are two and they are located on the right and left side of the carriage assembly. Two little yellow or black if dirty O ring felts. You will also have to check your print head gap. You want to make sure that it moves from right to left freely when the printer is off and unplugged. If not you might need to perform an afta adjustment. If all is good then you are looking at a bad main logic bd. and it will need to be replaced.

If you have any question on how to do any of the above, I can supply you with free technical support as long as parts that are requested are ordered from us.

I carry all parts necessary to fix your printer. We also offer in house repairs if the job seems too much. Please contact me back if you have any question.

Thanks

Need change coaxial emulations/interface to serial or parallel


Hello Javier,

I am a little confused on what you are trying to do. From what I know, a 4230-101 printer is a Twinax version not a coax. Might you have a 4230-201? That would be a Coax version. Also if you are trying to go from one interface to another and have a lower level machine 1 series or 2 then it’s going to require you to change out a lot of parts. You have a few different options if you need serial. They make a 4232-302 which is a serial/ parallel printer or a 4230-4I3 or 4S3 which is a twinax serial and parallel printer your choice of IPDS or not.

If you have any questions or are looking to get out of your 101 printer and into a serial printer I can work something out where I can take yours in exchange for a serial printer fully refurbished.

Please give me a call and we can work out the details.

Thanks,

Forms jam on IBM 4232


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.
