HI there.
The printhead does become hot during printing, if you have been doing a lot of printing or the printer is left on but idle and you get this message then you should power of the printer and wait for it to cool down, recommended time is half an hour to an hour. Try not to leave the printer on when its doing nothing, this way it will keep cool when you come to use it.
As far as i can remember Tally supply a CD with this printer, on the CD there is a section called troubleshooting so if you experience more problems with the printer its always a good idea to take a look at the CD.

Kind regards and thanks for using FixYa!!

It sounds like you may have a broken (or perhaps stuck) pin in the printhead. Check for missing dots in other letters also, or if printing a graphics object, again, a missing dot, consistent throughout the print.

Other possible causes of a pin not being "fired", are a small break in the ribbon cable from the printhead to the control circuit. Look for a tiny crack or break in the ribbon, especially along the edge. Also, a defect in the electronics which control the printhead pins will cause this.

If by chance the printhead is all gooped up with old ink, a pin might merely be stuck. I have taken printheads out of dot-matrix printers and soaked the pin area (area closest to the paper) in rubbing alcohol, or used Chemtronics cleaning chemicals to spray off the old sticky ink. Messy job: don't wear a clean white shirt!

Lastly, if a pin is broken, either the printhead must be replaced, or sent in for repair, assuming repair centers still exist. In years gone by, I have sent in heads, and gotten them repaired successfully.

That error means the that Printhead is not where the printer expected it to be. Clean the emitter grid (under the Printhead) with a soft cloth and clean the sensor with canned air. If that does not clear it up it is normally the Main Board Assembly.

There is a T2280 and a T2280+ they take different Main Boards so make sure you get the right one.

either your aga motor is bad or your board set is bad. Turn unit on watch the printhead while opening the cover. The printhead should move back and display "cover open". When you close cover the printhead should move closer to paper. If not bad aga motor or bad board set.

Hello, I have characters printing trouble, so that I would like to restore the factory default settings for my printer Tally 2280. But I do not know the procedure to do so. I need Helps, very...


You can reset the menu on the 2280 to factory default settings, but I would strongly recomend first printing a menu print to ensure you know how the menu is currently set up.

The menu can be printed in the follwoing way;

Switch the printer power on.
Press the Setup key to enter the menu settings.
Press the key under "Menu",
Then press the key under "Print" and your current configuration will be printed.

If the menu is locked power the printer on holding down the setup button, this will unlock the menu.

To restore the factory defaults within the printer,
switch the printer off.
Press all four keys beneath the printer display and switch on the printer.
Keep the keys pressed until "Initializing" is seen in the printer display.
Your printer is now set to the factory default configuration.
