The cartridge just snaps on, printing half letters may be caused by the ribbon being folded over on itself or not moving look at the ribbon toward a light you should see each letter clearly thru the ribbon

The typewriter ribbon does not want to turn when typing


If you have moved the red lever from the front to thje right and it dosen't feed be sure the ribbon is to the L. of the slacker finger where the ribbon comes out of the cartridge if that is OK try some WD40 on thearm with the spiked driver on th end they do gum up and not engage the ribbon.

The ink cartridge will not eject. It's stuck inside the printer.


Canon Selphy CP800. I had a cartridge ribbon break when it stuck to some photo paper I was trying to reuse and the cartridge became stuck and would not release. All you have to do is try to print a dummy print, the printer will then display that the ink cartridge needs replacing, it will then allow the cartridge to pop out when the release catch is operated. Beware of broken and torn ribbon inside the printer and try to remove the obvious loose pieces before inserting the new cartridge. Any remaining bits of ribbon should stick to the next photo you try to print but a ruined photo is a small price to pay as your printer should work ok once the debris is cleared. If you are adventurous you can dismantle the cartridge by inserting a small flat screwdriver into the retaining clips at each end of the cartridge cover. remove the used ribbon from the spool as it is only stuck onto the spool spindle. Re thread the unused ribbon onto the spool ensuring it travels round the deflecting spindle which is easily prised out and replaced over the ribbon. You must ensure that the new ribbon is wound onto the spool in the correct direction (check this by comparing the rotation with good cartridge by ensuring the ribbon tightens as it should) then wind the ribbon forward until the black line appears on the clear sheet of ribbon and carry on printing.

I have Broken ribbon message on the LCD display. I just changed the ribbon and the clean cartridge. Hellp


It could be that the printhead is damaged or the ribbon sensor needs repair. Call Zebra troubleshooting for help. If it is under warranty you can send the printer back to zebra for repair. Takes about 3-5 days. All the info is on their website. good luck.

Brother typewriter


make sure you power on the typewriter and space bar carrier until middle of bar. flip open cover and put ribbon in rear end first then push front to lock. i have to then turn orange knob on top of ribbon cassette in direction that arrow points just to tighten ribbon and that usually will lock the ribbon cartridge if it lock with first push. also, the ribbon itself goes in front of the 2 guides that stick up higher than the rest. hope this helps. if not you can look at brother website under that model and look at manual. it shows you how.

Flashing green & orange lights and does not print cartridges moved on left hand side


It seems to me that either one or both your cartridges have defective [worn-out] sensors. Please try to replace your cartridges and the problem should resolve.

Winding technique:
To wind a new ribbon, take the cartridge housing apart and remove the old ribbon and two cardboard cores. The new ribbon is fitted with the larger roll (the ink ribbon supply spool) at the rear side of the cartridge (as the housing is viewed when it is normally installed into the machine). The ribbon winds over the topside of the rear spool (the supply side) and feeds into the underside of the front spool (the take-up side). Make sure the ribbon is wound neatly, evenly and is tight. If the ink film has become detached or is too loose on the front spool it will not wind on and cause a machine error. If required, use a small amount of sticky tape to secure the ink film to the front cardboard spool and then neatly wind it on to the take-up spool a minimum of five turns, making sure the film does not overhang at the edges. Now reassemble the housing and refit into the machine.
If it’s still not fixed:
If problems persist after fitting a new ribbon, try replacing the entire ink ribbon unit (cartridge housing + a new ink ribbon) using a new, genuine Brother unit before requesting a service; this will be less expensive as the actual housing may have been damaged and is causing the problem and this unit is readily available as a consumable item through sales outlets. If the machine still has problems, book your machine in to be repaired with an authorised Brother Service Centre.

Hellooo.
2 thing come to mind you may check.
First check the ribbon cartridge to see if it is empty..These are usually a one time ribbon...and has to be replaced when empty.
2nd make sure the cartridge is snapped in properly and seated, and also the printwheel lever must be snapped (pushed forward) in order for everything to be aligned. if the typewriter has a correction tape (white or clear) make sure it is not interfering with the ribbon.
Lastly the ribbon drive may be broken or out of adjustment. a minor repair.
Hope this helps...
