I have created a custom paper size 14' * 4' but i am unable to select the same paper size to set the page setup.


The maximum paper width the 6306 can print on is 13.6 inches, you will not be able to select a custom size form larger than the printer is capable of handling.Simply set the for size to 13.6 inches or the maximum width you will be printing.

Hi my Tally printer giving an error Pw Sensor defekt plz advice me


You are seeing the "PW Sensor Defect Error" because the printer is detecting a fault with the Paper Width Sensor.
The Paper Width Sensor is located on the print head carriage and detects the paper edge to prevent printing on the platen.

You can check the follwoing;

  • Ensure the print head cable is not damaged and makes good contact with the printer and print head carriage
  • Ensure the Paper Width Sensor is connected correctly to the print head carriage assembly
  • It may be necessary to replace the Paper Width Sensor

Am running windows7 and when i try to add a form with 21" width and 30.50" height my form is not added.


The form width you are trying to create is wider than the T6215 is able to print on. The maximum page width that you can print is 13.6 inches, if you try to create a custom size paper wider than 13.6" Windows will not show you this form within the T6215 printer driver. As you can not physically print 21" wide you do not need to define a paper size this wide. Simply create a paper size which reflects the maximum print width or 13.6" You will then be able to print the maximum width the T6215 is capable of and also see this form in the printer driver.

My printer Lipi 2280+ printing properly with 15*12 and fanfold 8.5*12 paper,but when i am using paper width slighly smaller than it less than 8.5 width printer gives paper with error>kindly suggest


You see the "Paper Width Error" on the 2280+ because the print job being recived by the pritner is wider than the physical paper which will cause the pritner to print on the platten, in order to rectify the problem.

  1. Ensure the print job on the system is less than 8.5 inches wider
  2. Perhaps move the paper in the tractors to the right
  3. Disabling the Paper Width Sensor will clear the error but may cause the printer to print on the Platten which may reduce print head life, the Paper Width Sensor can be disabled in the following way;
    Start with the printer Powered OFF
    Hold Down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON keep ONLINE held down until you see ASCII80 ASCII136 on the top line of the display
    Press the button under NEXT repeatedly until you see APW on the top line of the display
    Press the button under APW
    Set APW = OFF

    This will disable the APW sensor and you will not see the Paper Width Error

The printer only prints half a page then moves to next page and a


Before printing, the printer checks the paper size. If the paper edge guide is positioned incorrectly, the paper may be fed at an angle. If this happens, the bottom of the paper is therefore at an angle and not perpendicular with the paper feed rollers. This can result in the paper sensor not recognising the real page width as it can only detect a certain amount of the bottom of the paper sheet which is nearest to it.

If only part of the width of the paper is detected, the printer considers that the paper width is less than it actually is. To avoid printing on internal parts of the printer such as paper feed rollers, the printer automatically cuts the image to fit the detected paper width As this phenomenon depends on the paper feeding condition, it can be random.
Reload the paper and make sure it is loaded correctly. All the way to the right and the paper guide correctly adjusted.

On my 2265+ I will be printing and I recieve "paper width error" press online to continue


The "paper width error" indicates you are printing out side the area of the paper. ie the document you are trying to print is wider than the physical width of the paper you have in the printer.
The printer displays this error to give you the opportunity to remedy the problem as printing outside the area of the page may be undesirable;

  • Data printed outside the area of the paper will be lost, you will not see this information you printed on the paper.
  • You may shorten the life of the print head by printing on the platen with no paper to protect the print head.
I would recommend the following;
  1. Check the size of paper selected on the computer system, or ensure the data print width is the same or smaller than the actual paper size used in the printer.
  2. If it is not possible to change document size on the system or if the printed outside the paper width are not required or are simply spaces (ie no print) you may wish to turn of the paper width sensor so the edge of the paper is not detected and the error is no seen, the paper width sensor can be disabled in the following way.
  • Power printer OFF
  • Hold down the ONLINE button and power the printer ON, keep the ONLINE button held down whilst the printer powers on and initializes.
  • Release the ONLINE button when you see ASCII80 and ASCII 136 along the top line of the display.
  • Press BUTTON 4 (under NEXT) repeatedly until you see the APW option along the top line of the display.
  • Press the button directly under APW
  • Press BUTTON 2 or 3 to toggle the APW setting to OFF
  • Press the button under SET (button 1)
  • THen power the printer OFF and after a few seconds back on again.
The above actions will disable the Paper Width Sensor and you will no longer see the Paper Width Error, be aware you may be losing data and or shortening the life of the print head.

Printer says 'Unable to detect paper width'


The paper tray has some "fingers" that detect the paper.
Remove the paper and tap the sensors a few times to make sure they are not stuck.
Use lots of mamper, not just one sheet so that there is enough weight to press down on the sensors.
Perhaps it is Earth's gravity that is malfunctioning today :)

My printer stoped in the midle of print


The 2280+ is indicating a defect with the paper width sensor, the paper width sensor on the 2280+ is locate on the carriage and detects when you try to print off the paper.

You may wish to disable the paper width sensor. To continue printing, this can be done in the following way.

Power the printer on holding down ONLINE
When the printer displays ASCII80 ASCII136 along the top line of the display release the ONLINE button.
Press the Button under NEXT (button 4) repeatedly until you see APW
Press the button under APW
Press button 3 to change this to OFF
Press SET
Place the printer ONLINE to exit the menu.

This will disable the Paper Width sensor which should resolve the issue with the message being seen. You can then get an engineer to look at the paper width sensor to see why this is not working.

Printer is not recognizing the new custom paper size


You also have to create a form the same size in "server properties".

Click on "printers and faxes"
Click on "file" top left of screen, choose "server properties"
Click on "create new form"
type in width and height of paper

(my HP printer will not recognize any paper less than 5' in height and less than 3" in width)

If your create a form less than 5" in height ' and/or less than 3" in width - chances are that's why your printer won't recognize new form. Height HAS to be at least 5" and width HAS to be at least 3"

type in name of new form
save form and close

It should now be in your printer paper options.
