Here is how: 1. Printer should be turned on, but not printing 2. Hold down PAUSE button for 3 seconds. The pause light will flash and the 2 tear off (FONT) lights shows the current font selected 3. Press Tear off(FONT) button to cycle thru fonts till light indicate the font you want. When you select the font needed it stays in use as default till you change it.
Note: Some software can change the printer font selected.
How many prints have been down on the unit? the most common problem could be the rollers need replacing or a problem with the ribbon sensor. We do repairs and also repair under warranty, How old is your printer?
check to see that when yu replace the ribbon it has not slipped in front of the print ribbon and that you have not got the button for corection pressed by mistake it is using this to print you letters not the ink ribbon
Set your print driver to "Do Nothing" on Head Close and Power Up. the next time you print will pass this information to the printer and the problem will not come back - actually the default for the driver is "Do Nothing" so it has probably been changed for some reason, you will need to change it back.
Is the ribbon tight or sticking, If ribbon can't turn, it delays entire carriage, you will notice that if you move carriage up and down by hand ribbon turns, I have seen sticky ribbon s cause problems as well as gearing that drives ribbon with wornout gears
If self test fails then all faults /i can think of on these is
