IBM 4224 Shuts off after warm up

My IBM 4224 shuts off after warm up....Once it is warm I can't turn it back on until it cools off. Is this the power supply? or is there a fuss that I don't know about?

4224 were notorious for poor connections between the control cards and the motherboard. Opening the printer and reseating all the cards solves a multitude of problems. Try it.

Code 56 error


You have a Head Error-Head Drive/Emitter Failure.

Your going to need to check your head drive belt, being that the printer is so old the belts go bad and start to crack and turn into a tar sub. Also make sure to clean your rails, over time they build up dirt and oil and need to be cleaned off.

  1. Press the On button to turn the printer off.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove all the ink cartridges.
  4. Wait two minutes.
  5. Plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
  6. Press the On button to turn the printer on.
Install the ink cartridges when prompted.

Error 01

Error 01 is End of Form, Make sure u have paper installed.
The sensor that is at the bottom left that you feed paper thru is were this error is generated. Make sure it is aligned and working.

Also clean with wet paper towel slide in and out

You can also run a Test 851. to see if the sensor is open(1) and closed(0). also check the connection on the board to see if it still connected.

I can go into level 2 support if more help is needed.
