My IBM 4247 printer is jamming and printing out of alignment. I really need to fix this issue as soon as possible because production is affecte. Your assistance will be well appreciated. Thank you in...


If it prints correctly cold, then starts to fail, check the carrier slide and tube, probably no lubricant there and as it heats up it will bind and fail.

Print head hits side of printer and will not print


The sensor that registers the carriage location has failed. Could be paper chaff, dust or other contamination. USUALLY these are an optical sensor (infared can't see the light) that a blade on the carriage breaks the beam. They are small. The location of the carriage is sensed and a counter keeps track of the position from there. If the sensor is not detected, the carriage tries to keep going and hits the side.

4247 Printer with a 56 Print Error


47b6dfe.jpg Hi,
There are a number of potential causes for this error. the most likely is a dirty Printhead Home sensor ( see Pic). Try cleaning it with a cotton bud or compressed air.

Does the problem occur during a self test ? ( print at leat 10 pages )

Let me know if this doesn't sort it.
