If you still use an IBM 6400 in 1500, 2000, or 2400 Lines Per Minute, it’s time to change!
REPAIR ISSUES EXPLAINED
IBM 6400 Print Shuttles.
The IBM 6400 shuttle re-manufacturing service is no longer available.
They were once completely rebuilt and re-manufactured by Printronix.
Replacing a shuttle is now a lower-quality move.
New Ribbon Masks and Ribbon Hubs for IBM 6400.
These are no longer available.
There is a fast-dwindling supply of acceptable used ones.
Without reliable ribbon masks, the units are unusable.
IBM 6400 New Repair Parts.
No longer available.
Used “pulled parts” are all that are available.
Neither Ricoh nor their outsourcing service partner Fuji has new parts.
Circuit Boards for the IBM 6400.
Old, getting older and dying in service.
Components such as the CMX Board are dying in the installed printers. A simple irreplaceable battery dies, and the only service choice is an old used board. Most of these boards are over 15 years old, and it is your gamble on how long the replacement will last.
The replacement IBM 6500 was announced in June of 2005! Printronix also announced the P7000 family in 2005, and then the P8000. Once the P8000 was announced, Printronix dropped support for the 6400 and Printronix P5000. Over time, the repair parts pool has suffered for the older ‘white’ printer units. Time and age have caught up with the ability of service organizations to keep you running.
Replace now: IBM 6400-015, 6400-i2s, 6400-020 and 6400-i24.
