[Coladam] Issues with Printer (SOLVED)

My printer boots up, carriage moves to the left, stops, daisywheel
spins, the carriage moves to the right ~1". I can't print, or line feed.
I remember the printer should do a line feed during that sequence.
I borrowed a scope from work to take a look at the signals...
What I see when I should be getting a line feed (after the daisy wheel
rotates???) is (referring to the schematics I found on Rich Drushel's
Adam Technical Manual page)
J1-1 (motor output) - No Activity
Drain of Q7 - 11.4V Pulse on it
Measured between Drain Q7 and J1-1 .... No connection. Temporarily
jumpered the two.......Ye-hah! It works! Prints and every thing
Now I need to fix it properly, but it's nice knowing no parts are needed.
Thanks for everyones help. This is what I remember and appreciate about
the ADAM community. Everyone is so friendly.
