Turn off the typewriter, open the top-cover and inspect the area around the carrier for any damage or foreign objects.
2. Move the carrier towards the center of the machine.
a. When moving the carrier manually, it should be difficult to move, butit will move under steady pressure.
b. If the carrier moves freely, the drive mechanism may not be connectedproperly.
3. Remove the ribbon and inspect the cartridge for damage. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the cartridge to remove any slack from the ribbon.
4. Check the correction tape to insure that it has not become tangled ordamaged.
5. Close the top-cover and restore power to the machine.
If the problem persists, your machine may require service.

The ribbon drive on this model are gear driven..a .may be off, a loose set screw on one of the gears..the ribbon may be the wrong one or it has a ribbon reverse lever on the side of the machine, this should be free of binds.
Hope this helps........

Tally t2265 'check ribbon' hardware alarm... carriage moves ok, 2 new ribbons ...that came from other machines,,,, ribbon drive seems fine, could it be encoder strip??? please help!


The check ribbon message on the 2265 indicates the printer is detecting problems with moving the print head. You have ruled out the ribbon as being the cause of the problem by using ribbons from another printer.
Befor suspecting other components check the pritner model, if the printer is a 2265+ check to ensure the correct ribbon is used. Note the ribbon for the 2265+ is different to the 2265 ribbon. The 2265+ has a ribbon sensor to detect the ribbon moving. If the printer is a 2265+ the part number for the ribon should be 062471.

If the correct ribbon is used the problem could be the timming strip which could be dirty or warn. Try cleaning this and check for damage.
The problem can also be caused by a dirty or lubricated carriage shaft, the carriage shaft should be clean and dry running - Keep clean of any type of lubricant.
The problem can also be cused by the timing station on the carraige, the carriage motor.

Screen not Working


Ok,

The back and forth motion indicates that the problem is in the interface wiring. Below is a link to disassemble the computer display screen and expose the interface wiring cable:

1) disassemble the lcd screen: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/ToshibaM35X/Satellite-M35X-display-1.htm

Follow the instruction step up to step 5, do step 5. Now look into the right side of the trough
exposed by removing the keyboard securing strip. There will be a silvery looking cable with a white plug on the end of the wire to the left. The white connector must be pushed completely into the white socket on the motherboard. Use a pair of heavy non cutting tweezers or needlenosepliers to push the white connector into the socket. You can turn the machine on and see if it is improved. If it still is not correct proceed to step 7 and stop following the dis-assemembly.

The flat cable that runs across the LCD panel must be connected fully into it's terminator connector. If the cable will wiggle from side to side using a gentle motion then the cable must be reconnected. Examine the connector that the flat ribbon wire is inserted into. There will be one little ear protuding from each side. You must pull the ears in a rocking motion toward the cable. Use a blunt thin device, like a paper-clip with a rounded end. You may have to use two of them, one keeping one side from moving and the other to push it's ear down. When the two ears are down CAREFULLY pull on the ribbon cable. If it does not move STOP. Try moving the ears in the opposite direction, if they move continue until they are fully loose. If they do not move continue. Again try to CAREFULLY pull on the ribbon cable. Assuming that the ribbon cable is loose, re-insert the ribbon cable into the ribbon cable connector. Keep the ribbon cable square with the connector. do NOT push hard, the cable will stop at the bottom of the connector port. When the cable is in the connector you will use the blunt thin device to push the little ears of the locking bar back into lock position. Now reassemble the unit to step 5. You can turn the machine on and see if it is improved. If it still is not correct, please advise.

I hope that his helps.

The ribbon doesn't advance at all? Try turning the ribbon by hand. If it is really hard to turn, or doesn't advance when you turn the knob (make sure you turn it in the direction of the arrow), then the ribbon is defective and you just need to get a good one.
If the ribbon turns easily, the leave the ribbon off, type and watch to see if the black knob on the left of the ribbon plate (the place where you put the ribbon), that turns the ribbon, is moving.
Also I have found that some brands of ribbons simply do not work on this machine. If the ribbon and the ribbon drive is working, try a different brand of ribbon.

First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence

Horzontally double printing & characters are not clers.


Is the ribbon tight or sticking, If ribbon can't turn, it delays entire carriage, you will notice that if you move carriage up and down by hand ribbon turns, I have seen sticky ribbon s cause problems as well as gearing that drives ribbon with wornout gears

If self test fails then all faults /i can think of on these is

  • Dry rail/dirty bearing
  • incorrectly manufactured ribbon
  • Damaged dot head
  • broken/breaking ribbon interface carriage cable
  • worn ribbon drive gears
  • worn/dirty ribbon drive rail
  • main board
