This is the only Solution to "Table Mismatch"...

If a “Table Mismatch” is displayed, recycle power and reflash the printer. Can get “Table Mismatch” after replacing CMX Board.
“Table Mismatch”
Flash Upgrade Instructions Using the printer’s Parallel Port: You have ethernet, you can FTP download.
1. Print a configuration on the printer prior to the download. After the flash is upgraded, the printer will be at Factory settings and you will need this printout to restore any non- default settings.
2. The PTX flash code is on a CD you should have received with printer. Don’t have? I can email you the Flash program.
3. Turn the printer's power off.
4. If there is a cable connected to the printer’s serial port, disconnect it.
5. Connect a cable from the LPT1 port on a PC that has a DOS prompt mode to the printer’s parallel port.
6. While holding down the Online & FF(Paper Advance) keys, power up the printer. The printer will display "Waiting for Program Download".
7. At the PC’s DOS prompt, go to the directory where the file is located C:\Temp and
type "filename.exe -pb<ENTER>" where filename is the name of the file that you downloaded in step 2.
NOTE: there is a space before the -pb
8. The printer's display will keep you informed of the status of the download. When the download is complete, cycle the printer’s power.

Hello, I can get your printer running... First tell me what your original problem was before you got the Table Mismatch Download Again" error. What part did you replace? What is the flash code # you used? See my image on HB NOT INSTALLD message I have been repairing and refurbishing the P5000series Line Printers for over 6 years... If I can get a little more history on that printer... I'll have it fixed. Have a good day! LineMatrix

I have an IBM 6400 printer that flashes no hammer bank installed, and then gives me a type mismatch error try download again. I have the hammerbank installed, so I'm a bit confused as to why it would...


it seems your controller bd lost its config somehow. They do that if the NVRAM has gone bad. You might need to replace the Controller bd (CMX BD) Rory 708-597-4222

Table mismatch error ibm 6400


Hi

Occasionally you willneed to reload the flash memory in the printer. To do this you will need a PCor laptop, a parallel or serial cable, and the correct flash code file. Thepart number for the flash code file can be found on the configuration printout.If the printer is not functioning and a current copy of the configurationprintout is unavailable you will need to gather some information to enable usto get the correct code for you.
In order to determine the correct flash code for the printer you will need toknow if the printer has any additional interfaces, the part number of thesecurity pal, the model of the printer, the amount of flash memory and draminstalled, and if the customer uses PGL, VGL, or IPDS graphics.
Once you have the correct flash code file you will need to copy it onto thehard drive of the PC you will be using to flash the printer.
Connect your data cable (parallel or serial) from the pc to the printer
On the printer, hold down the Start & Cancel keys while powering on theprinter. Continue to hold both keys down for 5 seconds and then release them.

The default download mode is parallel (Centronics). This is the easiest port toflash the printer through. If you need to change the download port to serial,see the note at the end of this article.

At this point the display should read "Waiting for Program Download".

On the pc, open a Dos window. At the command prompt, change directories to thedirectory in which you stored the flash code file.

At the command prompt type:

filename.exe -pb

where "filename.exe" is the name of the flash code file you areusing.

While the file is being copied into the printers memory the display will showyou the load process and status.

Do NOT interrupt the load process as this can damage the memory and controllerboard.

When the program has finished loading the printer will reset itself.

If after resetting itself the printer displays a Par error, table mismatcherror, or hangs on initialization reload the code again.

Once the code has successfully loaded and the printer has reset itself, poweroff the printer.

Disconnect your cables and reconnect the customers cables.

On certain 475 and 500 lpm models you will need to set the shuttle speed.

On 1400 and 1500 lpm models you will need to set the coil temperature.

On all models you will need to run a test print and adjust the hammer phasing.

NOTE: If you need to flash the printer through the serial port you will needto follow these additional steps.
When you see "Waiting for Program Download" on the LCD press theScroll Up key. The display will now show "Select DownloadPort=Dataproducts".

Press the Scroll Up key to cycle through the available download ports.

When the display shows the download port you would like to use, press the enterkey.

The display should now show "Waiting Download/Port=" and the port youhave selected.

At the Dos prompt type:
MODE COM1:9600,N,8,1,P
filename.exe -pbc1

Continue with the flash download procedure.

There is nothing to do but try to reflash the printer firmware. If that is not successful then the cmx bd. must be replaced and reflash.

I'm sure you have fixed your printer by now... but reflash the printer.

Flash memory is contained in SIMMs (single in-line memory modules) located
on the controller board. Printer emulation and operating system software are
loaded into flash memory at the factory, but you will install software in some
situations:
• The customer buys the PGL or VGL graphics, Expansion-CT, or IPDS
option after the printer is installed
• The customer needs to upgrade printer software
• The customer needs different emulation software
• You have replaced the controller board
• You have added or replaced the flash memory SIMM
Emulation and operating system software are stored as a compressed file on
a 3.5 inch floppy diskette. This file is “executable.” You will expand it and copy
it into printer flash memory.
You can load software through the serial, parallel, or Ethernet port of the
printer.
1. If the printer has an Ethernet interface, refer to the PrintNet User’s Manual
for the download instructions. You are finished with this procedure. If you
are going to load memory through the serial or parallel port, continue with
this procedure.
2. Make a printout of all saved configurations. (Refer to the User’s Manual.)
(Installing new software erases all saved configurations. You will use the
printouts to restore printer configuration.)
3. Set the printer power switch to O (off).
4. If the printer is already connected to the serial or parallel port of a
computer capable of running an MS-DOS® based PKZIP® self-extracting
file, go to step 11. If not, go to step 5.
5. Unplug the AC power cord from the printer.
6. Disconnect all data input cables from the printer interfaces.
7. Connect a parallel data cable to the LPT1 port or a serial data cable to the
COM1 port of an IBM-compatible computer that is using the PC-DOS™ or
MS-DOS operating system.
NOTE: You can connect the cable to the LPT2 port if the LPT1 port is alreadyin use. The load commands are different if you use this port, as
described in the note after step 18.
8. Connect the data cable to the appropriate I/O port of the printer.
9. Plug the AC power cord into the printer.
10. Power on the computer.
11. Insert the emulation or upgrade diskette into diskette drive A (or B) of the
computer.
12. Make the diskette drive the active drive by typing the following at the DOS
prompt:
A:<return> (If the diskette is in drive B, type B:<return>)
13. Get the name of the compressed file on the diskette by listing the
contents of the diskette; at the DOS prompt type:
DIR<return>
The compressed file on the diskette takes the form FILENAME.EXE
Now write down the complete name of the file with the .EXE extension.
14. On the printer control panel, press and hold down the ON LINE + PAPER
ADVANCE keys. Without releasing the keys, power the printer on.
Continue holding the ON LINE and PAPER ADVANCE keys down for five
seconds, then release them.
NOTE: The port default is CENTRONICS; this is the standard load through
the parallel port. If you want to use the default, continue at step 18.
15. When you see “WAITING FOR PROGRAM DOWNLOAD” on the LCD,
press the < (NEXT) key. “SELECT DOWNLOAD PORT =
DATAPRODUCT” appears on the LCD.
16. Press < (NEXT) again to cycle through the download ports available in
the printer:
DATAPRODUCT (parallel)
CENTRONICS* (parallel) (default port)
RS232-9600 (RS-232 serial, 9600 baud)
RS232-19.2K (RS-232 serial, 19200 baud)
RS232-38.4K (RS-232 serial, 38400 baud)
RS232-115K (RS-232 serial, 115000 baud)
RS422-9600 (RS-422 serial, 9600 baud)
RS422-19.2 (RS-422 serial, 19200 baud)
RS422-38.4K (RS-422 serial, 38400 baud)
RS422-115K (RS-422 serial, 115000 baud)
17. When the printer download port you want to use is displayed on the LCD,
press ENTER. “WAITING DOWNLOAD / PORT = <your selection>
appears on the display.
18. At the DOS prompt on the computer type:
FILENAME.EXE -pb<return>
where FILENAME.EXE is the compressed file you noted in step 13. This
command decompresses the file on the diskette and copies it as a binary
file into the flash memory on the printer controller board.
NOTE: If you are loading the file using the LPT2 port on the computer, enter
the following DOS command:
FILENAME.EXE -pb 2 <Return>
The 9600 baud rate is the only selection older versions of DOS can
use. The baud rate information entered in the following DOS
commands must match the selection you made in step 16.
the load process and status. (LCD messages are listed in Table 2,
page 37.)
CAUTION Do not interrupt the downloading process once it has started.
Interrupting a download will damage the flash memory on the controller
board and PrintNet card ( if installed).
19. When the new program has successfully loaded into memory and the
printer has reset itself, set the printer power switch to O (off).
20. Unplug the AC power cord from the printer.
21. Remove the diskette from the computer and store it with the printer.
