This is typical with an AS/400 system. The following parameters may be used when setting up your outqueue:
Host print transform- *yes
Mfr type and model- *wscst

Status Code 411:
Framing Error. The baud rate values may be mismatched between the host and the printer serial port. Make sure all parameters on the Host and the Printer's Serial port match exactly.
Status Code 616:
Failed dot/s cannot be shifted to allow the bar-code to print. The bar-code field will be replaced with a grey-scale pattern instead of printing a code that would scan with incorrect information. Call customer service to order a new printhead.
Status Code 704:
Supply error. Make sure the printer or software is set up for the supply type installed in your printer, black mark, die cut, etc. Some printers only support one type of supply indexing method.
Status Code 757:
The label format dimensions differ by more than 0.25” from the calibrated length of the supplies installed in the printer. When this code appears, press "escape" and the label will print as much information as possible on the label. To prevent this code from displaying again, the format dimensions may need to be altered to match the supplies or the correct supply length needs to be set to match the format dimensions.
I need to ship my printer, what's the best way to do that?
- Remove the ribbon roll, if one is loaded.
- Remove the supply roll, if one is loaded.
- Close the printhead by pressing down on the thumb well until you hear it click into place.
