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.

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.
