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. Install the ribbon.
2. Load full width (136 column) paper.
3. Power on the printer and set top of form.
4. Press Stop to put the printer into NOT READY mode.
5. Press Scroll + Scroll to unlock the Enter key.
6. Press Scroll + Scroll + Return + Enter to enter the CE Tests menu. (Press all four keys at the same time.)
7. The display will show “SERVICE / PRINTER MECHANISM TESTS”, the first menu item. Press Enter to enter the
mechanism tests menu.
8. Press Scrollor Scrolluntil
“PRINTER MECHANISM TESTS / HAMMER PHASING” is on the display.
9. Press Enter. The printer begins printing all H’s, each line preceded by the phasing index number.
10. Press Return. The display will show
“SERVICE / PRINTER MECHANISM TESTS”.
11. Press Scroll or Scroll until “SERVICE / HAMMER PHASE VALUE” is on the display.
12. Press Enter. The top line of the display will show
“HAMMER PHASE VALUE” and the bottom line will show the current phasing index number.
13. Press Enter. The phasing index (followed by an asterisk) will move up to the top line of the display.
14. Press Scroll or Scroll to increase or decrease the phasing index, then press Enter to activate the value as it prints.
Continue to increase or decrease the phasing index until the pattern of H’s appears.

15. When the print pattern is acceptable, press Stop. Printing stops, and the printer automatically enters the current phase
index value into NVRAM. The display shows “NOT READY”.
16. Press Scroll + Scroll to lock the Enter key.
17. Close the printer cover. Press Start to put the printer into READY mode.
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.

1910 Singer Hand Crank Machine shuttle hitting


Ok... great. That helps. Here is a manual for the 128 (the more modern version of the 27/28), on PDF page 9 there is an adjustment instructions for the shuttle area. Your shuttle carrier will be slightly different (no button to help remove the shuttle) but the adjustments are the same. Don't be a afraid to "tweak" your carrier gently with a pair of pliers if needed. I found my carrier had been bent slightly a few tweaks, straightened it out and gave me better results. The parts are hard to find and expensive.

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.

A have printronix p5005 printer but printout not clear


Remove the black cover over the shuttle and look for a phase number hand written in blue marker on the right side of shuttle. Press the up and down arrows at the same time to unlock the control panel. Press left arrow to go to diagnostics. Down arrow and right arrow until phasing. Set phasing number same as what was written on shuttle assy.If it is making noise then the shuttle is bad.

When you install an operating system, you need to install the chipset
drivers, the graph drivers, sound driver.

This motherboard is old and phase out. So there is not much support
for the board.

There is one download for this board from shuttle, I posted the page
below and you will see the download. If this does not have the sound driver,
the only other two things you can do is go to devise MGR and see who made the sound hardware and see if they have it, or you can right
click on it and pick update software driver, search internet.
If you can find it or it does not find one for you, there is nothing you can do. Sorry.
