ithaca itherm 280 gibberish print

I have a ithaca ithermal 280 receipt printer and when you print to it, it is gibberish.  If I do a self test print, it prints fine.  I know it is not a driver issue as we have multiple printers, and only a few of what we have print gibberish.  I have compared the configuration from a good working printer to one that prints gibberish and the only different between the two is the calibration under the black dot options.  On the good on, it is set to "1" and on the one that prints gibberish is set to "6".  I can not change the calibration.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Russell

The printer is set as the default, and i know it is not a driver issue due to the fact that another printer with the same model and board rev. # prints  just fine.  I figured the issue out and it was the pcb board for the parallel port.  I accepted your solution as it would be the most common issue to this problem.
Thanks for your reply,
