i know you stated you put the paper in correctlyin the printer but if the thermal reactive side of the paper is not facing the print head the thermal paper won't print on the wrong side of the paper. it will load into the printer and seem ok but the heat on the wrong side of the paper will not react and show any writing. Can you try turning the paper over in the printer feed holder so the other side of the paper faces the print head and give it another test .
This error apear usaly on this machine , when the cloutch sistem of paper feed roller are obsolete , to fix this issue you must clean the sponge out the clutch or replace-it becouse this is already sticky
The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.
The "Tractor 1 Tear" message is not a error as such, this is an information message showing the printer is set to the front tractor feed (tractor 1) if you press the button directly under "Tear" the printer should move the paper to the tear possition.
If the pritner is not printing I would recomend checking the following;
Ensure the printer is set to "ONLINE" press the button you should see ONLINE TRACTOR 1 TEAR on the display
Ensure the printer is loaded with paper, press the button under "Tear" the printer should move the paper forward if it is loaded into Tractor 1.
If you are not using Tractor 1, ensure you select the paper path you are using within the menu and move the paper selection lever.
Observer the LCD display for any errors that may be seen when print jobs are sent.
Try printing a menu print on the printer this will identify if the printer will print, the menu can be printed in thefollowing way. -Power the printer ON holding down the button, keep the setup button held down whilst the printerinitializes. -When the printer has finished initializing ensure the printer is OFFLINE -Press and release the button to enter the MENU -Press the button under "MENU" on the LCD display -Press the button under "PRINT" on the LCD display
The printer should print a menu settings page, if this prints OK the most likely causes for the problem are;
The computer system is not sending jobs to the printer (check the correct printer is selected on the computer system)
Connectivity problem (check cabling, IP Addresses etc)
Delete the printer icon. Power down your computer. Disconnect your printer cable. Power the computer on. After you log into the system, reconnect your printer cable. If the printer is found, install the driver. If not found, your printer cable may be faulty or problem with printer if you cannot print a test page.
Hi. The reasons listed in the manual that cause the LED to flash
Front cover is open Close the front cover of the printer. Back cover is open Close the back cover of the printer. Paper jam Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 6-5. If the printer does not start printing,
press the Go button. No paper fed manual feed slot Put the paper in the manual feed slot.
See Printing on
plain paper, bond paper or transparencies from the manual
feed slot on page 1-10 or Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes from
the manual feed slot on
page 1-13. Memory full The printer memory is full and the
printer cannot print full pages of a document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15. Print overrun A print overrun occurred and the printer
cannot print full pages of a document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15. Drum Error The corona wire
needs to be cleaned. See Cleaning the corona wire on page 5-14.
If you check out page 6-5 it tells how to clear the paper
jam from the rear of the machine! A point often missed.
Check out the website below if you don’t have a copy of the
instruction manual =
try a self test print(hold feed and power up) if the printer still does not print check the ribbon to make sure it is inserted correctly. If it is still does not print it could be the printhead or pressure setting. you could also try printing with carbon paper to see if the pins in the printhead are striking the paper.
if the printer is still not marking the paper you may need to replace the printhead or printhead cable.
