Hi guys, does anyone know how to deal with this error for SAILOR/ Cobham printer?

‘no connection between message terminal and printer’


Call a technician


Not familiar with that system but if you haven’t already, in general…

Get out the manual and shut it down IAW the instructions, check/tighten all the cable connections then restart, check the manual in case there is a specific sequence for restarting.

If you’re still getting the error go to the “troubleshooting” section and see if there is any help there.


Get a new printer. They only seem to last about 2 years. I like the interface with all the Thrane & Thrane/Sailor/Cobham GMDSS package but man the hardware is crap. The software is Android based BTW.


thats scary
