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.

After we changed the printing spools, the printer is having problems

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.

I am trying to print a booklet 2 pages per sheet double sided. Printing is OK but spacing is no good for the binding when the pages are cut in two. What instructions should I give the printer to allow...

Hi

By spacing, I assume you mean the margins at the centre.

The default margin settings are not the same for the right and left hand side of the page, so the printing on the reverse side is offset from the printing on the first side.

The right margin is always wider to allow for punch holes in file paper.

It is not the printer settings you need to adjust, it is the page layout of your word processing software.

Adjust the margin settings manually. In MS Office 2007:

Page Layout > Margins > Mirrored Margins.

Hope this helps.

Do you get x64 printer drivers for an IBM 6400 print device, or is it best to just use the Generic Text driver ?

Load the drivers from IBM's web site. But.. depending what Windows ver. you are on go to install new hardware. Windows will find the drivers itself.

Margin problem

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.
