Question about Printek FormsMaster 8003 Matrix Printer
A printek 8003 gets "bad gap home" and printer prints light
SOURCE: printek 4300
You can buy a $3.00 micro switch from Radio Shack and replace the fault gap detector switch if you can solder electrical connections properly.
I've done dozens of them.

Bad GAP HOME is a problem with the sensor (switch) that senses the automatically set printhead gap. Usually the wires break from flexing that run to the switch. Could be a bad switch also, or others.
You need to test the switch and wires with a meter.

Have changed out the Jam detection sensor? That is the black paper guide with a wheel in the center of the assy?
