Question about TallyGenicom 8008 Laser Printer
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
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 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.

Power ON printer holding down ONLINE button, release it after TESTMENU is on display. Press NEXT few times, enter APM or somthing like that (or APW? cant remember), switch it to OFF. Press ONLINE. Thats it! Greetings.

The ribbon I had installed (code 061627) which says it is the correct one is in fact not. the drive pin on the printer slips while feeding the ribbon.
I have fitted a (code 062471) and now it is printing fine again.
a google search reports both these codes as compatible but they are quite clearly, not.
