Error 18 is a "Paper Edge Search Error".


1. Check document for damage and check it meets specs.
2. Check that Ribbon Cartridge is installed correctly.
3. Do "Form-Edge Sensor Service Check"
4. Do "Platen" adjustment.

Sensor Status Display:

1
. Start Self-Test (press and hold Start 1 on panel: then turn on printer. Keep holding button until at least "00" is displayed.
2. Use a magnet to override cover closed/open sensor to the left of the Start1 button in the indent.
3. Press Reject Off button until "4" is displayed.
4. Press Start1 button to shift to next digit.
5. Press Reject Off to display "4"
6. Display should now read "44"
7. Press Start2 button. The LED display indicates sensor status'
8. You will see changes with inserting paper or removing paper.

FORM-EDGE SERVICE CHECK:
Perform sensor status display as stated above. The sensor is located on the print head carriage on the left side.

1. The upper right vertical segment of the left LED digit is assigned to the form-edge sensor for Command "44"
With no paper the LED segment is unlit.
2. Check the sensor by inserting paper. Move the print carrier to the right to access the sensor mounted on the print carrier.
If the LED segment becomes lit when you insert the paper, and becomes unlit when you remove the paper, sensor is OK.
3. If the sensor does not work, check that the sensor cable is connected correctly. If the cable is okay, replace the following one at a time:
a. Form Edge Sensor -46H2648
b. Form Edge Sensor Cable -46H2730
c. Main Card -
1.46H2632 - Serial Interface
2.46H2634 - Parallel Interface

PLATEN ADJUSTMENT:

How to reset passbook printer ibm 9068


When you turn on the power, the microcode version and then the release level of the microcode are presented on the LED display, and the device runs the basic assurance test and then resets the hardware.
If you need configuration changes done such as how the printer communicates and such, then you need to know all the functions and codes for configuration changes.
The self-test runs only in the self-test state. To place the printer in this state and start the self test:
1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
2. Press and hold either Start 1 or Start 2 on the operator panel; then turn on the printer. Keep holding the button at least until "00" is displayed on the LED.
Note: The left 0 blinks, and the right 0 stays on.
3. When 00 appears on the LED, the self-test "00" is ready to run. Insert an 8.5x11 Letter sized piece of paper into printer.
4. Press Start 2 to run the self-test "00". This will print the Configuration of your printer.

925 service fuser error


A 925 Fuser Error indicates that the wrong fuser lamp or the incorrect fuser assembly is installed.
  1. If this error appears shortly after the fuser unit in the printer is replaced, put the old fuser unit back in.
    If the error message goes away with the old fuser unit, please check that the new fuser unit is the correct one for this printer model.
  2. If the printer has not recently had its fuser replaced, plug the printer directly into a wall outlet. Surge protectors and power strips can sometimes regulate the voltage to a fault for the printer. If the printer is already on a wall outlet, plugging the printer into a different outlet may solve the problem. Keep in mind that there is no need to have the printer connected to a computer during testing for a fuser error as any pages to test the functionality of the printer can be processed internally.
  3. If you have tried the printer on other wall outlets and the 925 Fuser Error still appears, the printer will require service to clear the message.

Xerox Phaser 8560 - error code: 07,010.43:205458


This is from the service manual. If you remove both sides and home everything it should come ready.
Harry

The 7,007.49, 7,008.41, 7009.42, and 7,010.43 errors indicate that the
Printhead was unable to tilt normally on its axis. Possible causes include:
??  The printer was powered off in the middle of a cleaning cycle and the
Wiper Blade has frozen to the Printhead.
??  A Drum Maintenance Camshaft lobe is broken and holding the Drum
Maintenance Kit’s oil roller against the Drum when it should be retracted
to its home position.
??  Process Drive not being aligned correctly.
??  A damaged Printhead Restraint.
??  Ink spilled in the Roll Block preventing proper Printhead motion.
??  Ink or other debris under the Printhead preventing proper motion.
??  The Wiper Assembly not being aligned correctly or ink spilled in the wiper
tracks.
??  The Head Tilt Gear not being homed correctly.
??  The X-Axis Motor nose cone not being installed correctly.
??  The ferrite torrid on the Printhead interface cable has slipped behind the
Printhead causing the Printhead to bind when it tilts backwards.
??  The black plastic shroud on the back of the Printhead is snapped off and
binding the Printhead when it tilts back.
Caution
After servicing the printer, manually set the following assemblies to their
home position before powering on the printer. See Section 6 for
instructions on setting these components to their home positions.
??  Printhead (tilted forward and disengaged from Printhead tilt gear)
??  Head Tilt Gear (disengaged from Process Drive train; arrows on left
frame point to each other)
??  Wiper Assembly (bottom of travel)
??  Process Drive (holes on Transfix Camshaft and Drum Maintenance
Camshaft line up with marks on frame, large gears within assembly
line up with holes in Process Drive housing)

IBM 9068-A01 printer loads paper crooked


Make sure it looks like this before installing. The gears have a habit of falling out of place while installing.

P62 error code


The IBM 6400 printer uses internal programming software that is specific to the printer based on installed interfaces and graphics options. This software resides in flash memory and when the printer is first powered on the software is executed. During this process it initializes the various processors on the controller board, initializes the optional interface cards, and then loads the necessary operating settings into dram. If the programming software becomes corrupt it will fail during startup, giving you the DC Program not valid error or a number of other error messages. The solution to this is a reflash of the printer. Unfortunately, the flash software is proprietary to IBM and they will not distribute it to anybody. The only way to get the printer reflashed is by calling IBM and having one of their engineers reflash the printer.

Forms jam on IBM 4232


there are 2 paper sensors in the 4232 printer. the first is the most obvious and is a large black sensor found at the front of the printer and the paper is fed through it. the next sensor is on the printhead carriage assembly. its rather small and can be easy over seen. the sensor is just to the right of the printhead assembly. Clean both sensors and make sure they are properly locked into their sensor homes and this should take care of your problems. If not then it might be time to replace those sensors.
