Setting Up Your Printer System Requirements For optimum printer performance and productivity, install the Tally printer driver software in a computer operating system that meets the following specifications. Operating System Requirements To use the Tally printer drivers included for this model, the connecting computer must use one of the following Microsoft operating systems: •...
Printer Location Tally color printers require the following environment specifications for optimal operation. Space Put the printer on a stable surface with good ventilation. Ensure printer is level for optimum performance. Keep the printer away from corrosive chemicals, gases, dust, and other contamination, and away from equipment that generates magnetic fields, electrical noise, vibration, or shock.
Temperature Make sure the temperature in the printer location stays constant. Keep the printer away from direct sunlight. For best printer operation, install the printer in a location where the temperature levels stay within the following ranges: Recommended range: Permitted range: Humidity Excessive changes in humidity can cause unwanted condensation inside the printer.
Unpacking the Printer The printer is heavy. Two or more persons must use the four grip locations on the underside of the printer to move it. The printer is packaged with a lift-off box top and bottom tray carton. Depending on the printer model, the printer can be delivered on a pallet. Warning! printer.
Chapter 2 Setting Up Your Printer Repacking the Printer for Shipment Before the printer can be repacked for shipment, the supplies in the printer must be removed and the inside of the printer must be cleaned. After the fuser oil bottle is removed, the residual fuser oil that remains within the printer, must be removed.
Installing the Starter Kit Your printer comes with a Starter Kit that contains: • • • • • • • Note: printer must be moved or shipped. Keep the dropper in a convenient, safe location for future use. The printer also comes with an ozone filter and a waste toner pack that have been pre-installed at the factory.
Installing the Paper Tray No Paper Feeder Installing Toner Cartridges Each toner cartridge is labeled with the capital letter of the toner color. Insert the toner cartridges in the appropriate slots in the printer from the bottom to the top as follows: C (Cyan), M (Magenta), Y (Yellow), and K (Black).
Note: cartridge separately. 3. Rock the toner cartridge three or 4. Peel the tape off the cartridge Save the protective cover for future use when shipping the printer and toner 5. Insert the toner cartridge care- 6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each 7.

Chapter 2 Setting Up Your Printer Here is a typical printed test page for the Tally T8006e color printers: If the test page doesn’t print properly, check for error indications on the control panel display. See “Chapter 9 Troubleshooting” on page 89. Before you can send files from your computer application to the printer, you must install the appropriate print driver and utilities for your specific computing system.
Installing Printer Drivers Tally Printer Autoplay CD The Tally T8006e CD included with your printer has an autoplay feature that will automatically start the installation process of the drivers and utilities for your printer. The CD contains the T8006e printer drivers, network utilities, and the documentation for your printer.
Setting up a Network Printer in Windows Configuring Windows to Print Using TCP/IP The Tally auto-install CD-ROM automatically installs the drivers and utilities your computer needs to print using TCP/IP. If you are uncertain whether your network settings are correct for printing over the network, consult your Windows Help for your operating system.
Assigning the Printer an IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway Address To print using the TCP/IP protocol, you must assign the printer an IP address, subnet mask and a gateway. If you are uncertain about what setting you should use, consult your network administrator. The IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway can be assigned through the printer's control panel or by using the Discover Tool and the printer's internal web page.
IP Addr IP Addr IP Addr IP Addr IP Addr IP Addr 192.168.31.27 SubNet Mask The SubNet Mask submenu allows you to set the subnet mask value for the printer. When the value is set to 0.0.0.0, the printer subnet mask will be defined according to the address class of the IP address for the printer.
SubNet Mask (255) SubNet Mask 255.(255) SubNet Mask 255.255.(255) SubNet Mask 255.255.255.(0) SubNet Mask 255.255.255.0 SubNet Mask 255.255.255.0 Once the IP address, subnet mask and gateway address are set , you can complete the installation of the printer using TCP/IP by configuring the TCP/IP printer port for your operating system.
Gateway Addr (192) Gateway Addr 192.(168) Gateway Addr 192.168.(31) Gateway Addr 192.168.31.(240) Gateway Addr 192.168.31.240 Gateway Addr 192.168.31.240 IP Setting The IP setting submenu sets how to set the IP address for the printer. When the value is set to AUTO, the printer obtains the IP address from DHCP server or sets it self by Auto IP function.
IP Setting AUTO IP Setting MANUAL IP Setting MANUAL IP Setting MANUAL Configuring the LPR TCP/IP Printer Port in Windows 95/98/ME By default, your printer is installed on LPT1 — the physical printer port of your computer. To print over the network, you must now install a virtual port, and tell Windows to print over the virtual printer port rather than the physical port.
Configuring the RAW (TCP/IP) Printer Port in Windows 95/98/ME By default, your printer is installed on LPT1 --- the physical printer port of your computer. To print over the network, you must now install a virtual port, and tell Windows to print over the virtual printer port rather than the physical port.
Configuring the TCP/IP Printer Port in Windows 2000/XP By default, your printer is installed on LPT1 — the physical printer port of your computer. To print over the network, you must now install a virtual port, and tell Windows to print over the virtual printer port rather than the physical port.
Configuring Windows to Print on a NetWare Network To configure Windows to print on Novell NetWare networks, install the printer drivers on the network clients. For more information about using the Web Pages to configure network settings, see “Appendix E Network Management”.

Replacing the Fuser Cleaning Roller Replace the fuser cleaning roller at least once every 12 months, or when the control panel display indicates that replacement is necessary. The life of the fuser cleaning roller in the T8006e is about 12,000 pages (at a 5% toner coverage rate on letter-size paper).
Note: Set the fuser cleaning roller counter to zero after initial installation and replacement. For more information, see “Setting the Fuser Cleaning Roller Counter to Zero” on page 14.. 2. Pull and unlock the lever. 3. Open the top cover fully. 4.
Replacing the Ozone Filter Replace the ozone filter whenever you replace the fuser cleaning roller, at least once every 12 months. 1. Turn the power switch off. 2. At the rear of the printer, slide the ozone-filter case out. 3. Remove the ozone filter from the case.
Replacing the Optical Photoconductor (OPC) Belt Cartridge Replace the OPC belt cartridge at least once every 12 months, or when the control panel display indicates that replacement is necessary.
