Can a Zebra S600 printer print labels without using a ribbon?


Yes it can but you have to use DIRECT THERMAL MATERIAL. That eliminates the need for a ribbon but what most people don't realize is that a ribbon is almost like "Oil" in your car. Direct Thermal material is more abrasive and will wear out your printhead much faster. Now if you don't print lots of labels that may not be a big deal but if you print 500+ labels a day then thermal transfer may be a better choice in the long run. Printheads are one of the most expensive components of these printers.

Zebra S600 will not do anything???


Emma, I can assist but this is slightly technical. The issue more than likely is the print head sensor flag is out of position. If you have the print head all the way down & purple toggle in the locked position but the print head light still flashed then more than likely it is the flag that came loose. To correct it means you have to remove the left side cover where the logic board is. Make sure to remove power cord & all communication cables & connectors prior to cover removal for your safety. After the cover is removed you will see the logic board. On the upper right corner area will be a SCREW with a black "L" shaped piece of plastic, this is the flag. At this point make sure the print head is down & locked. Place the flag in the horizontal position, which should be between the sensor positions, While holding retighten the screw. Once tight open & close the print head to see the flag move up & down between the sensors. Place the cover back on but put 1 screw in only so you can test. If all works put the rest of the screws in & continue to work. If not then update this & I will get back with you.

The factory default setting for the S600 is thermal transfer (ribbon). depending on your OS there is a command that can be echoed to the printer to change the setting to direct transfer (non ribbon). It sounds like your printer thinks is should use a ribbon and in fact you are not using a ribbon. Here is the procedure I use to get the ribbon motor to turn on:
1. start with the printer turned off.
2. open the printhead, retract the ribbon completely onto the supply spool. leave the printhead open.
3. Press and hold the top three buttons (PAUSE, FEED and CANCEL) while turning on the printer. When the botom couple lights turn off release the buttons.
4. When you are left with the power light on and the printhead light blinking reinstall the ribbon and close the printhead.

The printer will autoclaibrate and run a sensor test.
Once complete the take up motor should have turned on and you should be able to use thermal transfer labels and a ribbon.
