Why does TI OMNI 800 Model 880 Printer print report lines off page?

Cuz RM=220. Right margin.
this is for wide paper for 16cpi characters per inch.

At times while printing reports, the printer will continue printing off the page

LM=1 is left margin, RM=220 is right margin, TM=2 is top margin, BM=64 is bottom margin, FL=66 is form length (66 lines is 11 inches when LPI=6 lines per inch) PRTFEA=H means you have the print feature dial set to Host. Change the dial and you get different settings for forms, checks, invoices, reports. A-F.
Perf Skip just skips over the perforation where the pages are perferated. Enhanced means its double strike vs Draft mode.
These settings tell me you are printing compressed print (CPI=16) on wide paper (green bar) cuz RM=220 right margin is 220. For 8.5x11 paper 132 is the correct margin with at 16cpi. or 80 for 10cpi. Clearly you have the wrong paper in here if you print off the page. You must have 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 8.5.
Host allows the computer to change the settings on the fly. That may be why it goes off the page later. (Or it could be a carriage jam that makes it think its at space 1 when it isn't.)
I don't know what you are trying to print so I can't help you. I can tell you that having right margin on 220 is why its printing off the page.
You can change the dial to preset draft 16 and print a menu for those setting or you can change the RM to 132 or 80 by using the command, menu, change and accept keys.
Its been 10 years or so for me but take the printer off line by pushing the on-line button, press command, press menu and it will print all the settings like you have done. It will then print whatever the first item you can change is, press accept and keep accepting until you get to RM=220 then press change. It should print 80 or some number, press change until you get to 132 then press accept. Press accept until you get to the end. Press Normal and on line.
If you change the print size from 16 to 12, or 10 you will need to change the RM to the correct width.
Can't find a manual online for you. I probably thru away 200 of them in 2007 when PCS closed. It would show you what the choices are for each setting. And what the preset and A-F settings are without printing a menu on each one.
You might can buy a manual from Dennis or Rick...

There are NO 64 bit drivers for the LPI camera-- this is all that Meade has for software for the DSI camera ---

How can I scan a document then print it with larger print?

You can scan a document or photo or negative film etc.. using a scanner, there a many types of scanners which you can choose as per your requirement. There are dedicated scanners, all in one integrated scanners, or two in one like that.. but if you need it for your professional use or daily use, it's better to get a dedicated scanner not "all in one" since with all in one if the copier fails or fax fails, the scanner will also fail because they are related and built-in integrated.
The process of scanning a document is as follows;
  • > Place the document on the scanner's flatbed.
  • > Press scan button or scan using the integrated software from the computer.
  • > Customize the scan settings/quality.
  • > Save the scanned documents.
Printing a document to a larger size is different, you can use photo editors like photoshop, etc..where you can changed the resolution as well as the size of the image. It's best to change the size or resolution before you give the print command. Or you can also change the print size with the paper size or print size.
If you still need more help, please let me know with more details. I am ready to assist you.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Printer skips lines

What is the make and model of your printer?

Can you give us a better description of the failure, please? For example are you getting extra vertical spaces between lines of text? Are you getting white lines in-between lines of image (photographs)?

If it is text, check the linespacing setup in the application you are using.

For example, sometimes Word will set the spacing at 1.5 LPI (lines per inch). to fix that problem you only need to change the LPI back to 1.

Tally 2250

Measure with a ruler the size of the form in inches that you are going to use .

Calculate the number of lines you have by relating it to the Line Density using the formula
Form Length = Form Size * Line Density
For example for 11 inch paper at 6 lpi = 11 * 6 = 66 Lines

You must disable the Printers Menu Lock before you can change any settings - (power on holding down SETUP)

Press SET UP button on the Control Panel.

Select the MENU Option on the Control Panel Display.

Select the NEXT Option on the Control Panel Display until PAPER is displayed.

Select the PAPER Option on the Control Panel Display by pressing the button directly beneath it.

Select the Desired Paper Path for the Form Length change - The different Paper Paths can be stepped through by using the NEXT Option on the Control Panel Display.

Select Paper Path by pressing the button directly beneath it.

Select FORMLEN by pressing the button directly beneath it.

Select LINES and then increase or decrease the value on the Control

Panel Display by using the two arrow buttons until the desired length in lines has been achieved.

Select the SET Option on the Control Panel Display by pressing the button directly beneath it.

Set the Printer back ON-LINE by pressing the ON-LINE button.

This will set the form length on the printer, see the support section of for more info
