If the printer beeps Note the number of beeps and call for service. Install the Ribbon The printer must be powered up before a ribbon can be installed. The printhead has to back away from the striker bar to provide clearance to slide the ribbon guide onto the print head nozzle. The print head automatically backs away from the striker bar any time the printer is turned on and there is no paper in front of the print head.

The ribbon will still work like this. Turn the ribbon advance knob to tighten the ribbon fabric. It should snap down into place with moderate pressure.

The procedure for loading sprocket-feed paper is the same for the rear, front, or bottom paper paths. Put paper in the far Make sure the leading edge of the paper is parallel with the tractor tractor and close the shafts.

You must have the same number of pins engaged on both door.

If paper did not load Check the paper path selection. Make sure that the paper is loaded in the tractors that correspond to the paper path selection. If paper did not load, take it out of the tractors and pull 38870 jammed paper out of the printer from the tractor side and try again with a new sheet.


If this gap is too tight, characters will smudge. If the gap is too large, characters will be light and ragged, the printer will be noisy, and print head wear will accelerate.

If a paper rack will be used with the printer, connect the ground strap to the back genocom the printer at tab s provided next to the interface plate.

When using the serial See Chapter 4 to set serial parameters. Precise line registration depends on the form being fully engaged by the exit rollers. 38700 printer is not guaranteed to hold specified line registration for the first inch of the first form. This 38770 applies to cut sheets loaded from the manual paper path.

Control Panel The control panel keys do different things depending on whether the printer is online, offline, or in a menu. Any button function associated with the menu is shown on the panel with blue lettering.

This section assumes that the printer is set up as shipped, because it is possible to selectively lock out keys from the printed menu.

When the printer is online, it can print received data. When it is offline, printer settings can be changed, and test patterns and status reports can be Former printed. Format Selects a format. This printer-control protocol is the native language of the printer. Status Sheet A status sheet can be printed that shows how the printer is presently genifom the active format is printed.

To keep the printer as originally configured, select Abort instead of Save when exiting the printed menu. This menu is printed in English only. A menu list of seven selections should be printed. The LCD indicates what numbers Enter were entered, but the printout shows what to do next. Margins for Menu Listings In the printed menu, the lists of options are designed to be printed with a left margin of 0 inches and a right margin of at least 8.

If the margins selected are greater than the left margin of 0 inches and less than the right margin of 8.

Enter If the printer is turned offline, then online, lights flash and a prompt to enter the combination is displayed. The Online Lock may be set from the genicomm by sending an escape sequence. Formats What Is A Format? A format is a set of operating parameters, which are stored in nonvolatile RAM.

There are four stored formats and one active format.

All formats contain the following operating parameters: Utility from the main menu. The first two selections under this submenu Prnt: Stat and PR Format will print all information about all formats. It is always a good idea to keep a current copy of the status and formats printout for future reference. Formats Auto-execute on Paper Path Change As shipped, when the paper path geniicom changed, the printer will set the active format to the stored format that is assigned to the new paper path.


If the previous active format has 8370 been saved to a stored format, all settings in the previous active format are lost. A genucom format may be selected from the host with an ANSI genico, sequence. The printer must be in ANSI emulation to do this. Emulations can be switched with escape sequences. Power Up to the Currently Assigned Format As shipped, the printer will power up with the setting that genlcom in the active format Print head gap is the distance from the print head nozzle to the striker bar.

Maintaining the correct print head gap is critical to good print quality and print head life. If the gap is too small, characters will smudge and the ribbon may snag on the print wires. The print head moves back a certain distance and then forward again for half that distance.

This minimizes the effects or mechanical backlash on the accuracy of the adjustment. Change the Auto Head Gap Adjustment If the print head gap is consistently too tight or loose, or as the ribbon wears, printing becomes lighter, the print head gap offset may be adjusted from the LCD menu. To make adjustments to benicom print gap use the following procedure: Menu Make sure the printer is in local mode the On Line light is off. The active format is normally maintained through power on and power off, but will be overwritten if the paper path is changed or if a different format is loaded by the control panel or the host.

Different fixed gap settings may be assigned to any of the paper paths. With paper loaded in the desired paper path, note carefully the format number shown on the LCD.

Instead of adjusting top-of-form this way every time paper is loaded for a particular job, the required offset can be stored ggenicom a top print reference. For common paper sizes, the horizontal print position can be adjusted by moving the tractors on this printer. If a non-zero value is set for the top print reference, the tear-off distance in the affected format may need to be changed accordingly see next section.

Set the Tear Off Distance Park and reload paper so the top print reference, if set, will take effect. The printer advances paper according to the current tear-off distance. To summarize, a top margin adds blank space beyond what is sent by the host.

A top print 38870, on the other hand, adds no blank space but simply moves printing down on the form. Setting a non-zero value for the left print reference moves printing to the right on the paper.

When deciding whether to set a left margin or a left print reference, note that if a left margin is set at the printer and the application sends horizontal tabs, the position of the horizontal tabs relative to the leftmost character on the paper may no longer be correct.
