Tally Genicom 8008

Hi there.
Our companies net-printer displays a message that I don't understand (since I'm a graphic designer and not an IT). It reads "Set Belt CG". I found the belt cartridge, o.k., but (since we have no user's manual) I don't understand what to "set" about the belt...
Can someone please help me??

Thanx Paco

    Hi Jamming,

    thank you for the advice. I had already checked the belt, it looked fine, saw the squares on it and had checked them too, they were o.k. as well.

    But I never would had looked "deeper". So after your suggestion and looking at the transfer belt under the CG belt I saw the problem. The whole black plastic covering had a "fringed" edge on the left side (a "tear and wear" defect?) and on this side a big part of it was ripped away but still attached. I manualy removed the overhanging piece but the palstic is of a brittle consistency and as a result I had to tear off a complete "ribbon" of the covering around the cylinder.

    I started the printer, the "set belt CG" message has stopped being displayed, all the tests and calibrations completed, the printer works but part of the documents' right side doesn't print since the covering is ripped over the document printing margins. I guess about 4cm too much of the (obviously essential for the printing process, hahaha) covering had been ripped away before my "resque attempt" producing a big "dent" on the printouts.



    I will have to call the service technician for a spare, after all...

    Thanx Jamming for trying, thanx FixYa.

Hi Guys,

Just thought i'd let you know that if replacing the OPC Belt does not fix the issue it may have nothing to do with the OPC Belt at all. I've been servicing these printers for many a year and found that the "Set Belt CG" error appears when there is an error, its just the usual message. Not much help for users i know... 8008 **** balls loll

The Set Belt CG message on the 8008 indicates the printer is not detecting the OPC belt (the green reflective belt located in the top of the printer)
Try removing the Belt Cartridge and relocate this in the pritner, if this fails to fix the problem remove the Belt Cartridge from the printer then look down one side of the belt- (I think the left side of the belt), for black squares (I think there are two) the printer uses these to detect the Belt Cartridge is rotating. Check for damage to the Belt in this area. If the printer does not detect the belt as rotating it will indicate this error.
If the Belt Cartridge looks ok, remove the Belt Cartridge from the printer then look down the hole left in the printer when the belt cartridge is removed. Look for any obstuctions, also look at the black belt which is towards the back of the printer when you look in the top ( the transfer belt, I think) Look to see if there is any damage to this it may cause the Set Belt CG message.

Hi I have a second hand Tally Genicom 8008 and I can't get it to print anything. I've just downloaded a printer driver for it and am using it with an iMac with OS X Leopard. When I send something to...


First is worth checking the C (cyan) toner is not causing the problem with printing, the easiest way to do this is to print a configuration or test page via the menu on the printer to see if it will print. If the printer will print a page via its menu it should then be capable of printing from the computer system,

The Menu / Test Page can be printed in the following way;

  • Put the printer OFFLINE
  • Press the MENU/ENTER button
  • The display should read
  • Press the MENU/ENTER button
  • The display should read
  • Press the MENU/ENTER button
The printer should print a page, if it does not it sounds like the cyan toner is empty and is stopping the printer printing.

If the Menu / Test page prints ok this indicates the problem may be connectivity or driver related.

The first thing I would say is there are issues with printing to the the 8008 from Mac's particularly with the Intel processors.
There are also issues with versions 10.4 and over.

Some suggestions,

  1. Print using TCP/IP, ensure the printer has a IP Address set and also the port on the Mac is set to the same IP address. (dont use Apple Talk)
  2. Ensure you have the driver for the 8008 (not the IP8008) the IP8008 driver will not print to the 8008 and vice versa.
  3. Try printing from a simple application for example Sticky Notes, just to see if the problem may be down to the size of data files.

I need a linux driver for tally genicom 8008 colour printer. Does anyone have one? or know where to get one?


I have the same printer and run Linux Mint 13. Here's what I did:

Went to http://foo2slx.rkkda.com/ and followed the instructions for installing a Lexmark c500n.

Opened a browser and went to http://localhost:631 (the CUPS admin page).

=> CUPS for Administrators => Adding Printers and Classes
Add printer.
Follow the instructions until you reach a page with "Or Provide PPD File" at the bottom. Click "Choose File".
Navigate to where you unpacked the foo2zjs driver, there should be a folder in there called PPD: you want Lexmark-C500.ppd

Set what defaults you want do some printing.

When you have finished marvelling, perhaps give a thought to donating to the chap at foo2zjs for his hard work...

The SVC E9 error indicates a 'BELT MARKER' error.
This means the printer is not detecting the OPC Belt as rotating.

This error can be caused by a damaged OPC belt, you can check this by removing the OPC belt from the printer and look at the OPC belt it should have a smooth green coating if there is damage to this belt it may cause this error.

The error can also be caused by a damaged 'Transfer Belt' when the OPC belt has been removed from the printer look inside the printer where the OPC belt used to be located you should see a black belt towards the back of the printer, if this belt is damaged it can also cause the error.

Ensure the OPC Belt locates in the printer correctly.

If the OPC belt and Transfer belt look to be free from damage and a are located correctly in the printer you may have a faulty belt marker sensor or faulty OPC belt.
You can try substituting the OPC belt for an alternative one if you have this available to see if you can narrow the problem down to the sensor.

I own a Tally Genicom 8008 Laser printer. From the last print and after it appears the message: SVC E9 ERROR


The error indicated on the 8008, ‘SVC E9’ indicates the printer is not detecting the OPC Belt as rotating in the printer. The printer ‘looks’ for two black squires on the left side of the OPC Belt (as viewed from the front of the printer) if the printer does not ‘see’ black squires the printer indicates the SVC E9 error.

If the printer is displaying the SVC E9 error the most likely cause is something to do with the OPC Belt, normally removing the OPC belt from the printer then re-seating the belt would resolve the problem in most cases, as the OPC belt may not be locating correctly in the printer.
Unfortunately you have already removed the OPC Belt from the printer without resolving the problem, it may however be worth removing the OPC belt again and to look at the green reflective surface to see if there any damage or if the green surface is fairly central and is no skewed or bent in any way.

Depending on which position the OPC belt stops in you may see the black squares down the left side of the belt, if you can see these and they don’t look damaged or scratched the printer should detect the OPC belt ok, so the problem may lie with the sensor on the printer its self.

The residual image often occurs if the Transfer Drum cleaning roller is not located correctly in the printer, as this cleans the previous image of the transfer drum. In some cases where the printer has been moved or shipped, this cleaning roller may need to be relocated in the printer to ensure it is in contact with the transfer drum.

I believe the cleaning roller on the 8008 is located just behind the OPC belt, try removing this and clean the contacts at each and of the cleaning roller.
Ensure the cleaning roller fits back in the printer ok and give it a try.
