Sounds like the print head is at fault. The print head is actually a vertical line of small wires that move in and out to form the dots as the head moves across the page printing one row of characters at a time. One of the wires has failed. While it is possible that cleaning the print head with contact cleaner will resolve the problem, it might be time to replace the print head, or likely buy a used working replacement printer at less money than the cost to repair.

We are setting up new TallyGenicom LA800. However, printout has dot or period in between each characters printed. Hence, a single row info is printed on two rows. What seems to be the problem?

It would be strange for the printer to print dot between each printed character without this coming from the system.
As a check the first thing I would recomend doing would be to print a self test print on the printer, you can do this easiest by printing a menu print.
To print a menu print put the pritner OFFLINE
Press the button under MENU
Press the button under PRINT.
The printer should print out its configuration page, if this has dots between each character then this defiantly means you have printer problems.
You can try defaulting the pritner back to factory settings, this is down by holding down the four buttons (1, 2, 3 & 4) under the LCD display whilst powerind the printer on.

If the menu prints OK, then there is some sort of other strange system or communication problem.
If the pritner is connected via serial, check the serial settings on the pritner also chack the pin configuration of the connector used to print to the printer.

Try printing from another system or application to identify what might be causing the problem for example an application or driver problem, perhaps try printing from a PC directly to the pritner to check the interface on the printer is OK.

Check the emulation setting on the pritner ensure this is correct.

This happens when your print head gets dirty. Just claening the print head should solve your problem. To do this: Click start button > click Printers and faxes. > Right the printer icon > click properties > Here you should find something like "Head cleaning" or "Clean the print head". This option can be used to clean the priter head automatically. If it does not work, you can manualy take out the cartridge and dip it in to IPA (Isopropyle alcohol) solution would clean the head[dip the head only not the complete cartridge]. After a few minutes (10-20) you can fit the dry cartridge the printer. If nothing works try changing the cartridges. Note: When the ink is running out this may occur. The only thing we can do is to replace the cartridge.
