SOURCE: columns not printing straight

1. Clean the silver bar with an alcohol-soaked cloth. DO NOT LUBRICATE WITH ANYTHING!.

2. Perform the bi-directional print adjust using the procedure in the service manual. Alternatively, set the printer to UNI-DIRECTIONAL=YES int he applicable FORM menu.

Carriage belt failures usually show up as HEAD STALLs or the print columns mis-align and stay misaligned (which can also be cased by a faulty encoder on the carriage motor or by a main board failure).

Printing quality is very poor


The print quality of dat matrix printers depends upon the printer ribbon. If the ribbon is old or worn out then the print will be very light. In this case replace the ribbon.
Dot matrix printers are very old technology and I suggest you get a Inkjet printer or a laser printer.
Dot matrix printers cannot match the print quality of Inkjet and laser printers.

Mp: bad gap home


Bad GAP HOME is a problem with the sensor (switch) that senses the automatically set printhead gap. Usually the wires break from flexing that run to the switch. Could be a bad switch also, or others.

You need to test the switch and wires with a meter.
