The ribbon is lock in place with a bar that will rotate up or down. With the bar up lay the ribbon in place and push the locking bar down to firmly hold the ribbon in place

How do you stop the print cartridge and correction from coming loose when you use it?

If you are having trouble with the ribbon itself getting loose I have found that many generic ribbons don't hold proper tension.
If you mean that the cartridges are coming loose sometimes the blue latch that holds it down breakes.

How to fix display on Dterm80

Ribbon cable inside phone to display sometimes gets jarred loose. If you can remove the base, then unscrew the 2 screws holding the display in place, then slide it out and look for the ribbon cable being loose. If you have small hands maybe you can get that back to its spot. Better yet buy a replacement phone on eBay for 25 bucks instead of hoping it'll go back in and work properly. Some displays go bad line by line, in which case there's no help for it.

Maytag Epic has a damaged wire harness connection to the touchpad assembly.

To prevent any other new electrical problems, it would be better to buy a new ribbon cable.

After changing the ribbon, i am unable to print labeles because of a "ribbon error" and i don't know how to fix it.

Remove the ribbon, ensure that it is not loose and refit - I have had this before - the ribbon has basically not slotted down properly when inserted.

My nintendo ds top screen is white

it might be that the ribbon cable connecting the top screen with the bottom screen is loose. you can open it and fix it by yourself, if you want. if it doesn't fix the problem, is either the screen or the ribbon cable that needs replacement.

Ribbon does not move during typing and no ink gets on paper.


It appears that the ribbon feed connector has come loose from the ribbon feed motor. On top where the ribbon sits you will see where the ribbon couples to the ribbon feed motor on the right side. Look on the bottom of the ribbon and you will see where the ribbon couples with the ribbon deck feed motor. Directly under that ribbon deck is the ribbon feed motor. It sound like the cable came loose and it just needs to be plugged back into to motor.

Good Luck

In the back of the printer is an access panel with one screw to hold it in place.
The outer side edges are held in place with it plastic tabs (which you can not see due to they are inside the printer. So carefully remove this panel without breaking the tabs. Look inside and you will see a ribbon connecting to a circuit board. This is probably loose or disconnected. The end of the ribbon is hard and not flexible. Push the end of this ribbon in the white plastic standoff slot. This ribbon sometimes comes loose when the top scanner cover is partially remove from the printer. I said, partially because if you needed to remove the top scanner completely, then this ribbon would need to be completely disconnected. You can also see, when the access panel is off, other wire connections connected to this circuit panel. Sometimes they also come loose or disconnect when the top scanner is partially remove. Connect them if they are loose or disconnected. I believe to solve your problem is the ribbon disconnected. Best wishes in solving your problem.
