Re: paper motion fault

This info is from the Maint. Manual for T6212/T6215/T6218.

Tally Printer the error is some times Hammer

In the T6215 Maintenance Manual the fault message: Hammer Voltage has been replaced, in the T6218, with:

Hammer Voltage 1
There is a new fault message for the T6218. It is:

Hammer Voltage 2
Explanation: A high resistance coil fault has likely occurred in one or more of the hammer coils
Note: This fault message will have been preceded by printing slow-down attempts associated with On-The-Fly thermal monitoring of hammer bank temperature.

Corrective Action:
Check the hammer bank for defective hammer coils.
Confirm that hammer drive board is functioning properly.
