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

This is a easy problem... Have any question call 972-907-9771 x311
51e9bbd.jpg ATTENTION Hammer springs and hammer tips are fragile. Do not touch the hammer springs or tips. Handle hammer springs by the
thick mounting base only. Apply pressure only to the mounting base.
NOTE: Replace a hammer spring assembly only if there is visible damage or broken parts can be seen in the assembly.
5. Remove the mounting screws from the old hammer spring assembly. (See Figure 18, page 367.)
6. Handling the hammer spring assembly by the mounting base only, gently pry the old hammer spring assembly off its
mounting pins. (See Figure 18, page 367.)
7. Inspect the hammer bank and the old hammer spring assembly:
a. If there is ink on the hammer bank mounting surface, the hammer spring assembly mounting surface, or the hammer
spring neck or tines, reinstall the old hammer spring assembly and replace the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
b. If the old hammer spring assembly and the hammer bank are free of ink, install the new hammer spring assembly
Installation
1. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the hammer spring mounting surface on the hammer bank. Make sure the cloth does not
leave lint on the hammer bank.
ATTENTION Hammer springs and hammer tips are fragile. Do not touch the hammer springs or tips. Handle hammer springs by the
thick mounting base only. Apply pressure only to the mounting base.
NOTE: Replace a hammer spring assembly only if there is visible damage or you see broken parts in the assembly.
2. Handling it by the mounting base only, remove the new hammer spring assembly and mounting screws from the box.
3. Handling the hammer spring assembly by the mounting base only, carefully position it on the hammer bank mounting pins.
then gently press the mounting base down against the alignment pins. (See Figure 19, page 369.)
4. Continue pressing down on the mounting base of the the new hammer spring assembly as you install the mounting screws
from the replacement kit. Using a Torx T-10 bit adapter, torque each screw to 14 inch-pounds (1.58 N•m). Tighten the
center screw(s) first. (See Figure 19, page 369.)
NOTE: Use the 1-30 inch-pound Torque Screwdriver, IBM part number 16F1661.
5. Install the hammer bank cover assembly (page 354).
6. Install the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
7. Install the ribbon and load paper.
ATTENTION Do not attempt to adjust or “tweak” hammer springs.
8. Run an operator print test and check print quality (page 223):
a. If print quality is acceptable, return the printer to normal operation (page 339).
b. If print quality is still degraded, replace the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).

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.

IBM 6400 missing decimal...


is there print missing??? if so the hammer fret in that location probably (90%) needs cleaning as dirt can get between the fret, it only takes the smallest amount of debris to stop fret working, you need to remove hammer bank to do this, fairly simple to do just lots of screws. the only thing to check when reinstalling hammer bank is that you pull it towards you ( front of printer ) before tightening the 3 screws, this is to be sure the gap between hammer bank and platen is roughly correct. there are 2 small grub screws at each end of platen to adjust this gap if you need to.

IBM 6400 firmware resetting


Hold cancel+stop while powering on the printer to enter the maint menu. You can wipe the firmware from there. You need to have a copy of the microcode firmware to reload. If you are uncertain about these instructions, you absolutely should not attempt it.

IBM 6400 model i10 print problem


It's likely a "hammer" is defective. This can be caused by
a build up of ink under the ribbon shield and/or around the hammer "fret" itself or the fret is physically broken. Remember
that this is a "shuttle" printer and each fret covers anywhere from
one to three characters depending on model. Some cover fractions of characters as well. The problem will appear as either
data missing on the left or right margin or a blank column of missing data going down the page.

A technician is required to solve all of these problems as the
shuttle assembly must be removed.

I have an IBM 6400 i10 Printer connected via Ethernet to my lan. We print to it from Windows using an IBM ProPrinter XL driver. We print from Visual FoxPro 9 using code that bypasses the driver and sends directly to the printer. Through ESC code sequences I can successfully print condensed and expanded print, etc. The IBM documentation says the printer will print bar codes. I need to print Code 3 of 9 barcodes on that printer using printer control sequences. If I use the report writer in FoxPro I can get it to print barcodes but I cannot get it to print all 85 characters to the edge of the paper and it is much slower. Here is the information I need and I am willing to pay for the answers. 1) Is there a resident barcode font already in the printer or can one be purchased and put in it or downloaded to it? 2) Specifically what are the control codes to access the barcode to print them? NOTE: I do not need the AS400 codes that then get translated to what the printer understands I need the actual codes to send to the printer to cause it to print the code 3 of 9 barcode. I am given to understand there are actual printer definition files on the AS400 that might contain this information. Even though we also have an iSeries AS400 I donâ??t know how to access that definition. I have searched the internet for this information, IBMâ??s website, and have asked ServIT for this information and they just sent me some links I had already run across in my own internet searches. Maybe Iâ??m to old and go back to far in this industry but it doesn't seem like this is rocket science or an unreasonable request for low level documentation on printer codes but I cannot?t find any that relate to barcodes for this printer or an IBM Proprinter that work. The only thing I have been able to find is in Brother printer manuals emulating Proprinter and the codes there do not work on the 6400 emulating Proprinter.
