TallyGenicom 6600 Vs. 6200 / 6300 Series Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Will the 6600 work in my current operating environment?
Answer: Yes, the 6600 firmware is compatible with earlier TallyGenicom models. It is a true plug and print replacement.
Question: If I migrate to a 6600 will I have to modify my application?
Answer: No. We are fully aware that modifying host applications is always undesirable and often impossible, so extensive testing has been performed to ensure that the 6600 is fully backward compatible with all existing 6200 and 6300 applications. The 6600 printer uses the same software code as the previous 6200 and 6300 models.
Question:  Will I have any problems getting spare parts, repairs, or service for my 6200 or 6300 printers?
Answer: No. We will continue our reputation for providing quality long term product support. As parts supply becomes scare, we purchase and plan to continue parts availability for at least 5 years beyond the end of sale of a product.  We will make best efforts to continue to identify economical sources for these older parts. Parts pricing will reflect the market price and availability. 
Question: Can a 6600 printer handle my demanding forms?
Answer: Yes. The quiet cabinet models use powerful new drive motors, a straight paper path through the print station, and gentle curve to the output area on all versions of the 6600 printers. The higher speed cabinet models, however, have been dramatically improved. The tractors and a new hammerbank have been added to improve overall print quality. The result is that the 6600 pedestal can now handle 17 inch wide forms. Cabinet models can also print at the higher speed of 2000 LPM.
