In impact printers under the control of a processor, the present expedient provides a service failure recovery routine which may be implemented in the case where the print cycle instructions being input from the controller and buffered in the printer until carried out by the printer become quite low. When the stored print cycle data blocks provided from the controller to the printer and buffered in the printer become quite low, a service failure condition exists.
