Once in a while my as400 series can't print and it's showing Device prt01 not available. Most of the times i turn off and on my as400 a couple times then the printer is ok but this time i restarted 5 times already but the message "Device prt01 not available" is still there

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
The first 2 things I would check are to make sure the printer in powered on and in a ready state;  and that the device status is varied *on.  Also make sure you have an OUTQ attached to it. How is this printer connected and defined is it local / remote could be another problem.

    In general, this error message is shown while the QPRTDEV sysval
    set at the value PRT01. You can try to create a dummy device, if that can be helpful.

    In your system, what is PRT01? (What kind of printer? How is it attached?)
