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
