This can be done by sending an "escape sequence" to the printer. Basically you create a text file using Notepad and then print it. Of course the magic escape codes to do this are found in your P5010 Owners / Users Manual. I don't have a copy at hand. If yours has been misplaced, you're pretty much out of luck. As a long shot you can try the standard Epson codes for condensed print.

Hi
Either the power supply is
not generating a proper 48
Volts or the controller board
is not detecting a 48 Volt
output from the power
supply board.

1. Make sure the power supply
board is correctly connected to
the controller board.
2. Power on the printer. If the
message appears, do the power
supply operational check (page
195). If the power supply fails the
check, replace it. If it passes the
check, go to the next step.
3. Power on the printer. If the
message appears, replace the
controller board. Record the
message and return it with the
defective board.

The shuttle is actually the print head.If turning machine off and then back on doesn't fix the problem then you will have to replace the shuttle.

This is usually due to a bad main board. Occationally you can reload the microcode to fix it but not normally. Get the part number off the main board as there are 2 kinds and they are not easy to intercahnge.

An ******* or unsupported
instruction was attempted
in the application
program.


1. Cycle Power. Run the print
job again. If the message
appears, load the latest
emulation software.
2. Cycle power. Run the print
job again. If the message
appears, record the display
message and send it to your
next higher support facility.

I'm guessing the carrier solvent for the ink has evaporated. (Ribbon is old and dried out - even the new one) In the past, i have sprayed WD40 on unspooled ribbons and rewound them to bring ribbons back to life but that can be messy with spotty results. Suggest you buy direct fro Printronix.....
