Question about Tally Matrix T2280 Printer
Tally 2280 printer displays printhead hot
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
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.
