ATARI82040 Column Printer
This printer is in great physical condition. It looks very close to new. It comes with a new unopened black ink ribbon. It has nearly full roll of paper. The all important roll spindle plastic rod is present.The unit was totally disassembled. The plastics all washed and cleaned. Then Retro-Brited. The printer unit dusted and cleaned. The guide rod the printer head slides on was cleaned, and lubricated. The large black roller had a little additional lubrication added. The missing feet replaced with correct Atari rubber feet. The fuses replaced.
I uploaded a quick video of the head moving normally.
The unit powers on. The paper advanced and the print head moves easily from side to side.But it does not print. It responds to LPRINT commands from Atari Basic. But the pins do not fire.I first attempted the capacitor replacement suggested in a thread from AtariAge. But it still would not print. Then I got a later version 820 PCB online. But that also did not help. (the older pcb also listed separately)I have to sell this as partly working. I left the RF can off the pcb if you want to do further troubleshooting. I think the same printer head unit is available under several names and model numbers elsewhere.There are a couple of nicks and marks around the case, but they are hard to see, but need to be noted.The unit will be will packed for shipping.
This item is definitely not under any manufacturer warranty. Must be sold as is. No guaranty real or implied.
