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...

SOURCE: Tally Genicom 8008

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.

SOURCE: "check ribbon " error is comming on my tally 2280+ serialprinter

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.

Need a Windows2008r2 printer driver for TI/Genicom 8920


I am afraid the TI 8920 is a rather old model of printer, with the Texas Instruments brand or printer long discontined and with the demise of Genicom there are no Windows 2008 drivers for this printer.
You may wish to use the Generic Text only printer driver inculded within the Windows Add Printers Wizard, I do not belive there is any alternative

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 have a Tallygenicom8108N colour laser printer


We are having the same problem also. We have sent one cartridge back to supplier for replacement but now the other two color cartridges are starting to go grainy / stripy. I am not happy with the tallygenicom 8108N colour laser printer but we have spent a fortune on it with new cartridges all round. I have shaken the cartridge and that did nothing at all. Is anyone else having this problem.

Tally 8008 not printing mac OSX 10.5.6 leopard


Found a solution. We connected 8008 printer to imac running Tiger & we can now print via network on any of our emacs running Leopard. Not ideal but at least we can now use the printers. I would still love a dedicated driver to work direct but I suppose this will do for now.

Tally Genicom 8008


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.
