Hammer Phasing Adjustment:
Important: The printer must be printing the Phase pattern of “H’s” when the
Phasing Value is changed, or the New Phasing Value will not be written
into NVRAM. If the value is changed when not printing, the printer will
return to its default phasing value when powered off then back on.
1. Raise the printer cover.
2. Install the ribbon.
3. Load full width (136 column) paper and set the top of form.
4. Power on the printer.
5. If the printer is on-line, press the ON LINE key to place the printer off-line.
“OFFLINE / CONFIG. CONTROL.” displays.
6. On the control panel, press the = + > keys to unlock the ENTER key.
“ENTER SWITCH UNLOCKED” briefly displays. (If “LOCKED” displays,
simply press = and > again. This is the default key combination. The lock/
unlock key combination can be programmed by the user. If = + > does
not unlock ENTER, get the combination from the user.)
7. Press the ; key. “OFFLINE / DIAGNOSTICS” displays.
8. Press >. “DIAGNOSTICS / Printer Tests” displays.
9. Press >. “Printer Tests / Shift Recycle” displays.
10. Press ; until “Printer Tests / Phase Printer” displays.
11. Press ENTER. The display shows “Printer Tests / Phase Printer” and the
test begins. The current phasing value is printed on the left of the printed
pattern of all H’s. As the pattern prints, compare the H’s to the figure
below. If the phasing needs adjustment, go to step 12. If the phasing is
OK, go to step 15.
12. Press >: The current phase index displays. Press > again: An asterisk (*)
appears next to the phase value.
13. Press < to increase or ; to decrease the phasing index value, then press
ENTER to activate the value as it prints. Continue to increase or decrease
the phasing index until the pattern of H’s is acceptable.
14. Press = twice: “Printer Tests / Phase Printer” displays.
15. Press ENTER to stop the test.
16. Press CLEAR. “OFFLINE / CONFIG. CONTROL” displays.
17. Press = + > (or the key combination set by the user). “ENTER SWITCH
LOCKED” briefly displays.
18. Close the printer cover.
19. Press the ON LINE key to place the printer on-line.
NOTE: If you changed the phasing value, power down the printer, remove
the shuttle cover, and write the new phase value on the aluminum
shuttle casting.

Hello,

Seems like you need to do a Phasing adjustment. If that doesn't work could be a few different things.

Please give me a call.

You have something caught in the hammerbank cover. Sometimes a piece of lint, paper chad or some ribbon fabric will get hung in the holes and need to be cleaned out. Remove the ribbon, open the 'mask' as far as you can and look into the hammerbank area to find and remove the debris. Reload the ribbon and run a test print to see if the problem is solved. If not, the problem will usually be a hammer that is not retracting.

Sounds like a driver issue that is adding extra characters into the print script. Make sure your printer supports PostScript or PCL. PCL is the most common and works with all printer. PostScript requires a PostScript Chip installed in the printer. Download the latest driver either from the Printronix website or CNET.com

Printronix P5215 not printing full columns. I have changed phase settings but still leaving characters from the right margin. Please help


If you are missing columns of print (vertically), the ink is making the hammer frets stick. The shuttle probably needs to be removed and the frets cleaned. This is a common problem.

If using RS 232 serial communications, verify that host and printer settings match. Baud Rate, Parity,Stop Bits, 7or 8 bit word length. Example 9600,8,n,1

Or make sure it is not in hex dump mode.
