Usually caused by the ribbon feed unit. The gears strip out and stop working. Sorry about the pic, Fixya is pulling up the wrong picture.

Hi There. I have Tally T2265 Serial Matrix Printer. It shows "Hardware Alarm & Check Ribbon Error" after printing 2 or 3 pages. Sometime it prints 7-8 pages and sometime it prints 2-3lines...


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.
Before suspecting other components check the printer 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 ribbon should be 062471.

If the correct ribbon is used the problem could be the timing 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 caused by the timing station on the carriage, the carriage motor.

Error 305 ribbon check


Mostly caused by the ribbon hub (the part the ribbon "clicks" onto in the printer) cracking and separating from the motor. Easy check is try to rotate them. Do you feel little clicking (stepper motor) or does it spin freely and come off in your hand. If you do not feel the small clicks it has separated. You can try to tighten the screw (but try not to crack it more) or replace it. It could also be the motor but unlikely.
When the ribbon is moving the other end (motor) is trying to keep the ribbon tight. It detects the motion of the motor and it they are not in sync they will error.

Printer keeps stopping halfway though run of labels. Red light comes on and when pressed goes green reprints last label then a few more then stops again.


Usually this is a sensor problem. The printer is not recognizing that the labels are moving through. Remove the labels and blow out the interior with clean air. That may resolve the problem. Dust can accumulate on the sensors and cause this.

Please update this if that does not resolve the problem.

Thanks,
Dan

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.

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.

Hi-

Have you tried adjusting the platen gap, run a selftest on the unit and if doesnt print/if you are getting a blank page still. you have to adjust platen gap- check the setting as well on the panel try setting it to default.

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
