Ibm IBM Laser Printer 4019

Ibm 4019

I get error code 9 and when I press the check button I get a 7 but I can't find anywhere what the error is or what needs to be fixed.

Have you checked our error code pages?

Thanks Moe

I did check out the error codes like you said but didn't find anything on IBM printers. Also Checked out the Lexmark error codes but there is nothing there either. Any other suggestions on where to find them.

Check the fan.

More importantly, check the plastic bracket that holds the fan. When you open the top, it's inside the lid on the left side. The plastic posts that hold the assembly in are bad about breaking. The fan is just trapped in bracket by the mounting posts being fastened to the frame. When they break, the fan comes dislodged and cannot turn.

Yep! Fan bracket broken. Take plastic cover (top) off and you can get to bracket. I used CoolGlue (great for everything) to repair bracket. I am back in business. Great site!

Glue won't hold it for very long. It will fail again soon. Better go ahead and obtain a replacement part. I've tried everything from epoxy to silicone to fix these. Nothing I've ever used seems to last more than a week or two.

I used a gray epoxy material and built up the plastic at the break points and it holds well. Disadvantage is that you have to completely take the part off and let it setup with just the right angles. probably better to use the glue, then go over it again with an epoxy compound to build up the thin part. I've also used 20 gage wire looped below the part and then twist tightened. had to cut some clearance on the cover, but that machine lasted about 9 months and two toner cartridges at work before being retired.

Superglue and baking soda. The baking soda acts as an instant accelerator and a hardener. It makes an instant plastic that you can file, shape or whatever you want. Has pretty good strength. You can build it up in layers by applying more glue and baking soda.

No tip... just congrats for keeping a 4019 running for so long.
