Tally Genicom 8008 ghosting

We have 2 printers both exhibiting the same problem. Approximately halfway down the page (A4) a second ghost image is superimposed on the original. Both printers have had their photosensitive green gelts replaced due to deterioration of the originals but these show no sign of any residual image which I believe is the cause of the problem. Could it be the main drum and if so how do I fix it

Hi I have a second hand Tally Genicom 8008 and I can't get it to print anything. I've just downloaded a printer driver for it and am using it with an iMac with OS X Leopard. When I send something to...


First is worth checking the C (cyan) toner is not causing the problem with printing, the easiest way to do this is to print a configuration or test page via the menu on the printer to see if it will print. If the printer will print a page via its menu it should then be capable of printing from the computer system,

The Menu / Test Page can be printed in the following way;

  • Put the printer OFFLINE
  • Press the MENU/ENTER button
  • The display should read
  • Press the MENU/ENTER button
  • The display should read
  • Press the MENU/ENTER button
The printer should print a page, if it does not it sounds like the cyan toner is empty and is stopping the printer printing.

If the Menu / Test page prints ok this indicates the problem may be connectivity or driver related.

The first thing I would say is there are issues with printing to the the 8008 from Mac's particularly with the Intel processors.
There are also issues with versions 10.4 and over.

Some suggestions,

  1. Print using TCP/IP, ensure the printer has a IP Address set and also the port on the Mac is set to the same IP address. (dont use Apple Talk)
  2. Ensure you have the driver for the 8008 (not the IP8008) the IP8008 driver will not print to the 8008 and vice versa.
  3. Try printing from a simple application for example Sticky Notes, just to see if the problem may be down to the size of data files.

Ghost images of the same printing repeated down the page


Run a half test. While printing a few pages, open the cover, pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If you see the ghost images replace the toner. If you don't see the ghost images, replace the fuser.

I need a linux driver for tally genicom 8008 colour printer. Does anyone have one? or know where to get one?


I have the same printer and run Linux Mint 13. Here's what I did:

Went to http://foo2slx.rkkda.com/ and followed the instructions for installing a Lexmark c500n.

Opened a browser and went to http://localhost:631 (the CUPS admin page).

=> CUPS for Administrators => Adding Printers and Classes
Add printer.
Follow the instructions until you reach a page with "Or Provide PPD File" at the bottom. Click "Choose File".
Navigate to where you unpacked the foo2zjs driver, there should be a folder in there called PPD: you want Lexmark-C500.ppd

Set what defaults you want do some printing.

When you have finished marvelling, perhaps give a thought to donating to the chap at foo2zjs for his hard work...

Ghost printing


Hello,

You have a worn image drum. The drum is the part of the printer that the print image is created on before it transfers the toner to the paper. This part is coated with a very thin layer of Teflon so the toner does not stick. When it gets worn the toner starts to stick and that produces the shadow or ghost image approximately 3 inches down the page because the diameter of the drum roller is 3 inches. You will need to get the part DR-350, Office Depot has them as well as many places on the internet.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

My printer is leaving faint marks of other words down the side of the page...any way to fix that?


Yes, It sounds like a ghosting issue. Several components can cause a ghosting issue. The distance between the first occurance(the one on purpose) and the second occurance(ghost image) can determine the part of the machine causing the image problem
56.6mm - Fuser
54.5mm - Transfer Belt
75.4mm - Drum unit (1 of toner carts)

The residual image often occurs if the Transfer Drum cleaning roller is not located correctly in the printer, as this cleans the previous image of the transfer drum. In some cases where the printer has been moved or shipped, this cleaning roller may need to be relocated in the printer to ensure it is in contact with the transfer drum.

I believe the cleaning roller on the 8008 is located just behind the OPC belt, try removing this and clean the contacts at each and of the cleaning roller.
Ensure the cleaning roller fits back in the printer ok and give it a try.

Epson C1900 "ghost " images


Sounds like the transfer roller or the fuser unit may be faulty. Look at the fuser to see if the roller surfaces are dirty. If so, replace the fuser.

HP laserjet 1300 gives 7 rolls ghost ink spreading


BLACK ALL OVER PAGE COULD BE THREE REASONS
1) LASER SCANNER COULD BE SHOT
2) IMAGE TRANS FER ROLLER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.
3)EVEN THOUGH YOU MIGHT HAVE A NEW TONER ....DO NOT TRUST IT BEING GOOD !
TRY ANOTHER OR AN OLD ONE THAT WORKED BEFORE YOU CHANGED IT.
