    I thought you are an expert. Telling someone to turn machine off and back on. Do yo think that we haven't tried this? Either you are THE EXPERT or don't know sht from gravy. Do you know what is actually wrong

  • flipper_ibp Dec 17, 2010

    No new info. Last EXPERT told me to turn machine off and back on again. Not an Expert

  • flipper_ibp Dec 17, 2010

    I checked all connectors on the motor control board all solder joints look good. Any further ideas to troubleshoot this

    Thanks

Hi

Hope you already know that Error 3 is a carriage return horizontal position error and flashes when the printer turns on & the SP Motor Brake signal is not switched on within 3 seconds of it turning on. To solve this issue you should check the SP motor connection, if that is fine then the unit should be serviced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Sorry for the late response, if you have checked the motor control and the connections look good then check to make sure all the wires are fine not burned or broken. If the issue returns then the motor control can be replaced.

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.
4. Use the Micro Feed buttons to feed the paper to the desired top-of-form position. The “A” on the ribbon protector shows you where the bottom edge of your first line of text will print. This position is based on the first printable line of text. If your software inserts a top margin of five lines, your text will actually print five lines below the top-of-form position.
5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.

Re dfx -9000


Please perform the following steps to ensure your printer is physically functioning.

1. Turn the printer off and disconnect the interface cable.
2. Load plain, single part tractor paper into the printer.
3. Press the LOAD/EJECT button while turning on the printer.

NOTE: The self test prints over several pages. After the first or second page has printed, press PAUSE and turn the printer off.

If this self test prints correctly, then the printer hardware is functioning correctly.

>Try printing from other applications.
>Check cables as they can cause communication errors.
>Re-install the driver.

Line feeds


Hi-

When you said line feed do you mean the Top of form?

hope this helps

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.

5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.

Keep me posted if you have inquiries, thanks!
