The 'Set Drum" error indicated the printer is not detecting the drum cartridge as being located in the printer.
I would recommend doing the follwoing;

  1. Ensure the drum cartridge locates correctly in the printer. Remove it and re-seat if necessary.
  2. Ensure the top cover (the one that opens upwards to change the drum) shuts correctly, this cover pushes the drum into the printer.
If the above actions do not fix the problem, I am afraid the covers will need to come of the printer. There is a gear mechanism located on the left side of the printer that operates when the top cover closes.
This gear mechanism will need to be aligned with the alignment marks, it sounds like the gears will have slipped and the timing is slightly out.

Check the following possibilities that may causing the error message.
1. Some times more paper may be taken in the paper feed area, check for any other paper jam in other area of the printer.
2. Remove all the printer drives, ports and uninstall the printer software and once again reinstall it by following steps given below
Start - Control Panel - Add and Remove Programs - Remove the program in the list called Tally Laser printer.
By now you have uninstall the software and now reinstall the software with the available cd given at the time of printer purchase and start printing.
Thank you

Hi when should I think about replacing my T8024? It is 3 years old and has done 126242 sheets.I also have to fix jams at least 3 times a day. thanks brian

You may want to order a Maintenance Kit, which replaces the rollers, transfer roller and fuser, which will basically set your printer back to 0 pages and stop frequent jams also. No need to spend all that money on a new one.

ERROR MESSAGE BLK 1CHKSUM FLT on tally t6045 printer

BLK 1 means your black toner cartridge, and I believe the chksum error may have something to do with the memory file. Check out No. 6 under Unrecoverable errors on this sheet.

This is problably something to be sent in for maintenance.

For this error these are the recomendations:
(Try cycling power; initilizing printer. If error persists, maintenance
service is indicated.)

Good luck!

Tally T8006 Network set up

You can access the the NETWORK men on the T8006 by powering the pritner ON holding down TRAY

You should then be able to change your IP Get method and network settings.

Exit the menu by pressing the UP Arrow untill you see RESET on the display, then wait wilst the pritner restarts and it should have saved the new network settings.

The Set Belt CG message on the 8008 indicates the printer is not detecting the OPC belt (the green reflective belt located in the top of the printer)
Try removing the Belt Cartridge and relocate this in the pritner, if this fails to fix the problem remove the Belt Cartridge from the printer then look down one side of the belt- (I think the left side of the belt), for black squares (I think there are two) the printer uses these to detect the Belt Cartridge is rotating. Check for damage to the Belt in this area. If the printer does not detect the belt as rotating it will indicate this error.
If the Belt Cartridge looks ok, remove the Belt Cartridge from the printer then look down the hole left in the printer when the belt cartridge is removed. Look for any obstuctions, also look at the black belt which is towards the back of the printer when you look in the top ( the transfer belt, I think) Look to see if there is any damage to this it may cause the Set Belt CG message.
