Please perform the following steps to ensure your printer is physically functioning.
1. Turn the printer off and disconnect the interface cable.
2. Load plain, single part tractor paper into the printer.
3. Press the LOAD/EJECT button while turning on the printer.
NOTE: The self test prints over several pages. After the first or second page has printed, press PAUSE and turn the printer off.
If this self test prints correctly, then the printer hardware is functioning correctly.

If the issues persist

Please read through these instructions before trying and then follow the steps below:

1. Please power the printer "OFF".
2. Remove the printer cable from the back of the printer and remove all the paper.
3. Hold down the "LOAD/EJECT" and "TEAR OFF" buttons and turn the printer on.
4. Continue holding the "LOAD/EJECT" and "TEAR OFF" buttons down for five (5) seconds and then release both at the same time.
5. Power the printer "OFF".
6. Reconnect the printer cable.
7. Reinstall paper and ensure the thickness selector is in the correct position and that the path selector is also correct.
If the situation persists, remove the ribbon and paper and slide the print head back and forth across the width of the carriage several times. Reload the ribbon and the paper and try your test again.

Printer keeps skipping lines when printing. very annoying


is this a case of the dots are missing for a valid line, or do you mean a line feed is added at the end of a line, ie you get 3 lines of text occupying 4 lines of space , or 4 lines of text occupies 4 lines of space, but one line has no printed dots on it? to make it more obvious, what does a document with say text thats 3cm tall look like? as it sounds to me like contacts need cleaning.. *** note for info: do not rely on printouts from within a BROWSER as that may have unpredictable results. All text will be treated as a large block of PIXELS and Not TEXT. also Non Printer fonts could cause similar issues.

My printer do not print any file


I usually face the following problem while giving printing command to my printer:\r\n
1. On clicking print from file meno the printer does not print and the yellow light upwards starts blinking.
2. Reinstalled the printer after inserted the Printer Software *C6464-10018* v 41 *MacOS 8.1*USB
but printing did not start from this even.
3. sometimes earlier I experienced that only 2-3 lines get printed and after that the upper yellow light again started blinking.
4.Some times the printer goes on sucking papers and prints as the signs of playing cards or some other abnormal shapes lining etc.
Please be kind enough to solve my all such problem and if possible point out step by step action to be taken by me during such an eventuality at a later stage also.
