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.

Spools? Do you mean the toner cartridge?
If it is, take it out and holding it on the outside edges, rock it back and forth 10 to 20 times to even out the toner in the cartridge.
And rock it, don't shake it. Then put it back in and try it again.
If it has the same problem, there's a chance you got a bad cartridge; in the case explain the problem to the provider and ask them to give you a replacement.
Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?
Problem---Printer prints email on the very edge of the paper and leaves off the first 3 letters of every word down the edge of that margin. If you have Windows Live Mail forget trying to fix it from there. Clicking File will not give you the page setup option you are looking for. Go to the bottom of the screen, click "all programs", look for and click "Internet Explorer", click File, click "page setup". A screen comes up in which you can change the margins. The left margin is probably set on .25. Change it to .75. Okay. Go back and run a test email.
