    Actually, the printout showed misplaced characters like the pound

    sign and period but made the printout unreadable. The fix was to

    set the switches on the S3 switch bank the same as board that was replaced which was overlooked.

What is the cause of characterized printout. When I printout a test page, it just prints all sort of digits and numerals in no chronological order. What is the cause, is it the motherboard??


A print test page does just that the printer will print every character that is in its memory, together with lines and if it has colours will also use the different colours

Printing - print job arives @ printer no output


Sounds like a driver problem. Some printers require eoj (end of job) character & will wait forever.
Do a test print (search internet on how to print status page- usually button press combo). If you get a printout, you know the print engine is good.
If the printer is able to parse text, then try sending an ascii test file & see if anything prints. This will tell you whether it's a comm issue or rendering issue.

Towards right hand side of printout, characters ap...


If you are getting a "shadow" behind the text or image it is probably your fuser that is causing the problem. Anytime you see a double image or the print is smearing the fuser (aka fixing assembly) is to blame. You can troubleshoot the problem to see for sure before calling out a technician. Send a one page test print job to the printer. Open the rear "output" tray so that the print job exits the rear of the printer. Watch the paper as it is pulled into the machine. When you see the leading edge of the print exiting the printer open up the front door of the printer. This will of course cause the machine to jam up but its worth it. Carefully remove the toner cartridge. Look at the print on the page still inside the machine. Do you see the same grey image? If not then the problem is the fuser. If you do see the grey image then the problem is the toner cartridge. Stopping the print job in the middle of the printer like that allows you to see what the image looks like before it goes into the fuser. If the fuser is the problem call a tech. It is about a $100 - 150 repair for the fuser depending on the labor rates where you live.

I dont know how to get a self test page from tvs msp 245 printer (9 pin 136 cols). More over i have installed the updated driver for the printer and still it prints the garbages. But it prints from dos...


If you can get legible sensible text from a DOS prompt but not through windows I would suggest that your driver is corrupted or you are using a version of windows where the printer port driver is corrupted. Either way it seems that your issue is software not hardware. You could confirm this by installing the unit on a different computer and trying to print from that. If everything works on another PC then yours has the problem, if it doesn't work - then the printer is not compatible with windows.

We are setting up new TallyGenicom LA800. However, printout has dot or period in between each characters printed. Hence, a single row info is printed on two rows. What seems to be the problem?


It would be strange for the printer to print dot between each printed character without this coming from the system.
As a check the first thing I would recomend doing would be to print a self test print on the printer, you can do this easiest by printing a menu print.
To print a menu print put the pritner OFFLINE
Press SETUP
Press the button under MENU
Press the button under PRINT.
The printer should print out its configuration page, if this has dots between each character then this defiantly means you have printer problems.
You can try defaulting the pritner back to factory settings, this is down by holding down the four buttons (1, 2, 3 & 4) under the LCD display whilst powerind the printer on.

If the menu prints OK, then there is some sort of other strange system or communication problem.
If the pritner is connected via serial, check the serial settings on the pritner also chack the pin configuration of the connector used to print to the printer.

Try printing from another system or application to identify what might be causing the problem for example an application or driver problem, perhaps try printing from a PC directly to the pritner to check the interface on the printer is OK.

Check the emulation setting on the pritner ensure this is correct.

Tally 6100 missing lines


horizontal or vertical characters missing???
if your missing horizontal lines, look at where the print is missing if you see imprints... u have bad ribbons.
if your missing vertical characters down the page
Power off the printer & unplug from wall
Remove with phillips the top right cover. u will see that the control panel has a plastic clip needs to be pressed in for the control panel to come loose from the top right cover.
Then you will see P703 Hammerbank Ribbon Cable and
P704 Hammerbank Ribbon Cable swap these 2 cables on the Engine Controller Board part# 083368.
IF your missing characters move to another place on the printout then u will need to replace part# 083368.
IF your missing characters are still in the same place, then you will need to replace hammer module part# 081152, their is qty 11 of the individual 081152 about 1 inch wide. this will save $$$ ordering and replace 081152 if you have some at your work semi technical.
Be very careful with hands when powering the printer with the top right cover off
Electrically and mechanically.
Need more help you may call Toby at x311

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
