Question about IBM 6400 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Page advance We have a 6400-d generation II line matrix printer hooked up to our mainframe for users to print to. When "screen prints" are sent locally to the printer, it does not advance the page. Therefore, when the next job prints, it starts right in the middle of the page. Anything spooled from the mainframe(sdsf) automatically advances to a new page when finished printing. Anyone have any ideas how to page advance when things are sent locally? Thanks

IBM 6400 Matrix Printer is printing twice over a previous line it seem on to happen once or twice per page of text there seems to be no issue with the tractor feed no drag on the paper source and the test...

Might be your gap is set to high. try moving the right lever from A to B for example and see if it clears it out. Also might be your parallelism, you will find to hex screws on the right and left of the platen assy that u can adjust. This will balance out the shuttle if one side is printing to light and another is printing to dark. Rory 708-597-4222

Epson LX 300 prints something else. printed paper is not as seen on the screen

I am assuming that you have the user manual. Try the following:
1 Print a self test.
2 Reload the printers drivers.
3 Re-set the printer to factory defaults

If you do not have the manual comment and I will try to post the relevant pages.

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?

Canceling a print

Go to control Panel and click on PRINTERS icon. Then double on your printer and the print screen will come up. Then click on Cancel All Documents.

That should take care of the problem.
