I have a Tally 6212. I'm using non Tally ribbons which is producing a ribbon fault. I'm told by my ribbon supplier that there is an override to keep the ribbon from causing the fault.
If the ribbon is causing the Ribbon Fault, they would not be very well made compatables I would suggest changing to one of the other brands available.
I belive the T6215 senses the ribbon turning by having a silver strip stuck on a rotating disk on the back of the ribbon, if this strip is not present or is not being detected it will display a Ribbon Fault.
You can check the ribbon to ensure it has a reflective strip by manually winding the ribbon and looking at the back side of the ribbon, you should see a rotating disk which is half silver and half black.
If this disk is not present the compatable ribbons would not be that compatable.
The T6215 does to have a fault over ride for the Ribbon Sensor on its own, you can only over ride all faults this may cause other problems as Paper Out, Paper Motion errors are also overridden.
You can enable fault override in the following way;
Press and hold down LINE FEED and ENTER for about 5 seconds untill the printer bleeps.
Press and Hold down FORM FEED and ENTER for about 5 seconds untill the printer bleeps.
The above actions enabls Fault Over rides temporarily if the printer is powered off or reset Thai setting will be lost.
