Question about IBM 6400 Model i10 Matrix Printer
Hi all, Have you experience printing in IBM 6400-i10 that the 2-3 characters at the left side margin being cut-off in printout. I had tried some troubleshooting already like adjust the tractor margin, restore from old configuration etc. but still not successful. Thanks for your kind attention.
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.

You might want to go the printer properties and look for a option called gutter. Increase the value of this setting. This tells you the distance that should be left on the left side margin.
