I received a thermal fault on my Tally T6100 printer. I cleared the error and put it back online. It seems to be working fine, but, what caused the error and do I need to do something to keep this from becoming a more serious problem?

    I didn't check to see the fault code. The red fault light was lit and the digital display simply said, "THERMAL FAULT". Sorry. I don't have anymore info. on this fault. I pressed the "clear" key, then the "online" button and it started working after that.

It could be the problem with your Hammer bank. Plz check it having good impression while printing. Most of this problem related to Hammer bank in this model.

    The color is a little on the light side, but it is acceptable. Is the hammer bank controlled by the silver arm on the left side of this printer beside the paper holders?

Error message setup to address the power of the printer

If there is a message on LCD display to "SET THE ADDRESS" the printer will be fitted with a CO AX/Twin Ax Interface
Press CLEAR to CLEAR the error, then enter the menus on the printer and set an address for the Co-Ax/Twin Ax interface, if you are using this the address would need to match the system set up.
If you are not using Co-Ax/Twin Ax set a random address to clear the error.
Perhaps consider removing the interface if you are not using it

You lost the sensor calibrations. Grab the service manual. Do the four fault clear, enable tech access mode and calibrate paper motion, paper out and platen.

THS Error on warrantee printer tally serial printer

The print head operating temperature may need to be calibrated for the operating environment of the printer.
The print head cable may be damaged or incorrectly plugged into the print head or logic board.
The print head may have a fault.
There may be a fault on the logic board or interconnect board

The first thing that I would recommend doing would be to calibrate the print head operating temperature, this can be done in the following way;

·Start with the printer powered OFF and at normal room temperature
·Hold down the ONLINE and SETUP button and power the printer back on
·Keep the ONLINE and SETUP button held down until the display reads ‘PRINT TEMP. CAL’ along the top line
·Press the button under ‘TEMP CAL’ (button 3)
·Using buttons 2 or 3 change the Temp Setting to match the temperature of the room the printer is used in (change this value by at least 1 degree even if it is correct to force the printer into recalibrating.
·Then press SET to save the settings.

Once the Temperature has been recalibrated power the printer OFF and back on again, this should resolve the problem.

If once the print head temperature has been calibrated the printer displays ‘Head Hot’ or alternatively displays a ‘THS’ error this indicates the printer has a hardware fault. The next step would be to identify which part may be causing the problem.
I would recommend first checking the carriage cable to ensure this is not damaged and makes good contact at each end. Then you would need to look at a logic board or print head failure.

I too have just bought a 2nd hand printer (Tally T8006) that also worked well until the fuser oil seemingly has to 'swamped' everywhere and which now throws up the same error code as above. Will attempt to 'dry it out' and see if the code clears. Have also recently sourced an original installation CD, will check out fault codes when it arrives - Gazz
