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!
Mike

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.

Connecting the HP Laserjet 9500 hdn


This unit is meant to be used on a Parallel connection or an JetDirect Network adapter, for use over the local network.

If you want to use the Parallel port, you would need a computer which has a Parallel port on it and a Parallel printer cable.

According to the specs, this unit came standard with a HP Jetdirect 620n Fast Ethernet .

You can conect it to your router. This way all the computers can use it via the network.

HP Laserjet 2300 printing 5 copies


Friend,

There shouldn't be any need for a parallel-to-USB device, since your printer has both ports - and you could use ONE of the ports for printing. One, since two ports does NOT mean that the printer can serve two PCs simultaneously. On startup, it determines which port is active and "forgets" the other.

So I would have gone for either a parallel cable (IEEE 1284 standard, no longer than 10 feet) or a USB cable, running the cable directly from PC to printer.

If there's a need for several users to access this printer, I would either have shared it from my computer (where it's physically attached) to the other users in the network - or, purchased a jetDirect network card for the printer. With a JetDirect card the printer is accessible for all users over the network regardless of which computer is switched on.

Hope this clarifies and gives an answer to your question.

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.

Oki ML 320 Turbo/D IBM - JetDirect 170x Print Server prolems


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.
