Unplug the printer cable. Turn the power off. Wait 30 seconds.

Turn the power on.

If it is still printing, go into the conrol panel of the printer and clear the spooler.

That will clear the data out.

Its located in the adjustment section of the platen control or in the platen itself.

Key disabled message

The Down Arrow and the View buttons are disabled on the T6050 as default because reverse paper feeding is not recommended on the T6050 printer because they only have one pair of tractors which are mounted above the platen. If the printer tries to reverse feed paper, it could cause a paper jam unless the platen gap is open sufficiently to allow the paper to feed down through the gap unhindered.
You can enable reverse paper feeding if you are sure that a paper jam will not occur. This is done as follows. Set the printer to Offline. Press the Mode key: display will show Offline Normal. Press any Arrow key until display shows Offline Oper. Press the Forms/1 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Oper Forms. Press the CPI/2 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows Forms RevPap. Press the LPI/3 key. Press any Arrow key until display shows RevPap Enabled. Press the Enter key and reverse feeding will be set. Set the printer to Online. Once the reverse paper function has been enabled this option will need to be saved to prevent the setting being lost when the printer is powered off. To save the Menu Configuration; Put the printer OFFLINE Press the MODE button, then press the DOWN ARROW until CONFIG is displayed Press FORMS/1, then press the DOWN ARROW until PRINTER is displayed Press CPI/2, then press the DOWN ARROW until SAVE is displayed Press LPI/3, and with POWERUP shown in the display, press ENTER.

I have a lipi printer t6050. there is a problem showing shuttle fault. tell me what is this problem and how can i solve this

This error indicates the print mechanism is not able to move, in the first instance check;

There is no paper jams etc whcih may cause an obstruction
Check the ribbon is correctly installed and is the correct side of the ribbon shield
Check the platen gap to ensure this is not trapping the ribbon / paper and preventing the mechanism moving.

If the above actions do not resolve the problem the next thing to check is the Shuttle Mechanism,
Check the drive belt is in place and does not slip
Clean the rear side of the shuttle weight wheels, the sensor looks at the rear of the balanced wheels.
Check the shuttle motor to ensure it is working
Check for damage to the shuttle drive gears.

I guess you are talking about a line of text printed on the T6050 when it is powered on.If this is the case you simply have a network card installed in the printer but have not connected a network cable.To resolve this problem either connect a network cable to the internal network interface or remove the internal network card from the printer if it is not being used.

You lost the sensor calibrations. Grab the service manual. Do the four fault clear, enable tech access mode and calibrate paper motion, paper out and platen.
