For q an odd prime and 1 les m les q, we study two binary qm times q2 parity check matrices for binary array codes. For both parity check matrices, we determine the stopping distance and the minimum distance of the associated code for 2 les m les 3, and for (m, q)=(4, 5). In the case (m, q)=(4, 7), the stopping distance and the related minimum distance are also determined for one of the given parity check matrices. Moreover, we give a lower bound on the stopping distances for m > 3 and q > 3.
