Question about IBM 4230 Model 102 Matrix Printer
This error code is usally related to the printhead cartridge not running smoothly on the printhead shaft. Clean the shaft with a paper towel and some alcohol, let dry then take a clean paper towel with some WD-40 and apply to the printhead shaft. Move the printhead assembly from side to side. This should take care of all errors that are 50-59.

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.
