It sounds like you may have a broken (or perhaps stuck) pin in the printhead. Check for missing dots in other letters also, or if printing a graphics object, again, a missing dot, consistent throughout the print. Other possible causes of a pin not being "fired", are a small break in the ribbon cable from the printhead to the control circuit. Look for a tiny crack or break in the ribbon, especially along the edge. Also, a defect in the electronics which control the printhead pins will cause this. If by chance the printhead is all gooped up with old ink, a pin might merely be stuck. I have taken printheads out of dot-matrix printers and soaked the pin area (area closest to the paper) in rubbing alcohol, or used Chemtronics cleaning chemicals to spray off the old sticky ink. Messy job: don't wear a clean white shirt! Lastly, if a pin is broken, either the printhead must be replaced, or sent in for repair, assuming repair centers still exist. In years gone by, I have sent in heads, and gotten them repaired successfully.

Tally 2280+ printing in small font


The 2280+ can be reset to factory default settings by;

Start with the printer Powered OFF
Hold down the 4 buttons under the LCD display
Power the printer ON, keep the 4 buttons held down whilst the printer initializes, release the buttons when the printer shows 'Loading Defaults'


Prior to resetting factory defaults I would recommend printing a menu print on the 2280+ so you know how the printer is currently set up just in case there are any problems.

Hello, I have characters printing trouble, so that I would like to restore the factory default settings for my printer Tally 2280. But I do not know the procedure to do so. I need Helps, very...


You can reset the menu on the 2280 to factory default settings, but I would strongly recomend first printing a menu print to ensure you know how the menu is currently set up.

The menu can be printed in the follwoing way;

Switch the printer power on.
Press the Setup key to enter the menu settings.
Press the key under "Menu",
Then press the key under "Print" and your current configuration will be printed.

If the menu is locked power the printer on holding down the setup button, this will unlock the menu.

To restore the factory defaults within the printer,
switch the printer off.
Press all four keys beneath the printer display and switch on the printer.
Keep the keys pressed until "Initializing" is seen in the printer display.
Your printer is now set to the factory default configuration.

"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.
