Question about IBM 6400 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Wake up from energy saver mode

I purchased a used IBM 6400 to replace a blown up Genicom 4440. I set it up as a parallel printer with an HP Jetdirect card, and it's been working well. The problem is waking up from energy saver mode, it doesn't seem to want to do that. I set the mode for 60 minutes, but it's still frustrating. Is there any way to disable energy saver? I've gone through the manual, and my configuration settings, but can't seem to find one. Thanks!

The menu where you set the time once you've scrolled though all the time options will give the option of disabling it.

Why is light blinking on on-off button?


The blinking light indicates that the printer is on power saver mode. The Power Saver Mode saves energy by lowering power consumption during extended periods of inactivity. However, if you try to print from your computer when the printer is on power saver mode, the printer should automatically wake up and prints the job. You can also manually wake it up by just pressing and releasing the power button. Thanks.

Genicom 4440 is 15 years old and is used to print invoices with bar codes. The bar codes are not passing USPS regs. They are curved and were not like that years ago. Can the print head be cleaned or...


Yes to both questions. This printer has 3 print modules. you can try swapping the right side for the left side module or vise versa and see if the problem changes. if it does then you should replace the bad module.

Wont print on line


You may need to have some driver installed on your PC, that can be downloaded from some IBM printer web site, such as this one:

http://www.infoprintsolutionscompany.com/internet/wwsites.nsf/vwWebPublished/supportdownloads_ww

IBM does not manufacture printers any more, they outsourced that to other places like Lexmark & ProPrinter, so we have to figure out which outsource place is relevant & what name they have for whatever corresponds to 6400 driver.

Resolution:
Using HP JetAdmin.

Select Device then Modify
Next until arriving at the Options screen.

Here is where we make the necessary changes to the parallel mode and handshaking

Click on the pull down arrow and change the parallel mode to Centronics and make sure handshaking is set to nACK and Busy then click Finish. Reboot the JetDirect box and cycle the power on the printer.

Check the receive buffer on the Oki. I usually set it to the highest (88k or 128k). You might also check the print head gap if you are printing multi part invoices. If the print head is too close it may overheat and stop printing. If you have a different printer, swap it out and see if it prints correctly. It may be a problem with the JetDirect 170x, not the printer.
