Username is root and there is no password if you are going in through the GUI. If for some reason that doesn't work try root as the username and blank as the password.

Good day how do I fix a problem on the IBM 6500 printer not powering up. The power supply has been to be OK. The main board has been replaced. The fans are not running etc.

If you replace the main PCB you need to move the Key over or it won't post (grey squares on the panel with no fans on). It is a small 3-pin plug near the flash memory slot.

In addition to that if you have the V5 controller you would need to move the Flash memory chip and the DRAM.

After you do that you will need to load the microcode on the PCB. I can get you instructions to do this.

As400 LAN printer. queue has status of wrt but does nothing. can ping printer. have end/start writer, turned printer off/on, varied off/on. still will not print.

I'm assuming that you are using an IPDS device description. If so your Ethernet card need to have the defaults reset. There is an option to do this via the printers web interface.
