Try going through the LCD menu and if it say "Direct Thermal" change it to "Thermal Transfer", Direct Thermal made means, no ribbon required, but it sounds like you do have ribbon in the printer, if so, try my recommendation. If it asks for a password, it's '1234'.

When you open the print head to change labels, the ribbon tends to slide to the right (up the printhead) so...when you close, the ribbon is no longer over the sensor....thus the error message.
Just try sliding the ribbon to the left (down the print head) as you close

You somehow managed to unplug the cable that sends information to the control panel. You'll have to remove the cover to access that cable whether it's ribbon or wire, and plug it back into its connector.

For ZM400 and S4M, Has anyone had any luck with printing a white ribbon and a black or dark label without covering up the ribbon sensor with electrical tape? Isn't there a setting that can be...


You can try this: on the S4M, you can press the Menu key to go into setup mode. Under password level 3 parameters,there is a setting for ribbon which by default is set to Yes thermal trans. If you set it to No for direct thermal mode, this will in effect turn off the ribbon sensor. The printer won't stop now if it runs out of ribbon but usually you are there when printing to see that the ribbon is running out.

On other Zebras, you can turn down the sensitivity of the RIBBON LED sensor but the S4M doesn't have that setting.

See if that helps.

Error in position of the output for ZM400


this is usually caused by a pressure imbalance across the printhead. Check the printhead pressure adjust dials located on top of the printhead. You might find that the left side has more down pressure than the right side causing the ribbon to move to the right.

Hope that helps !

My zm400 keeps reverting back to direct thermal


did it stay on direct thermal if you not doing any print job ?
then i assume you the problem is when you printing .In ZEBRA DESIGNER, there's a printing preference that can be set up... i think u selected direct thermal when you print with zebra designer, that's why whenever u start printing, it show RIBBON IN again.
the solution is, Just changed the printing method from zebra designer.

if you aren't using zebra designer, then the problem at your driver. Open Printer & Faxes, then right click your Printer and klik on Printing Preferenced. There u can set up the printing method to Thermal Transfer.

The thing is....... changing the Setting from LCD panel won't change the setting on the driver.

i hope this will help you

"warning Ribbon In" error message


Had the same problem with a ZM400. As stated in the User manual (can be downloaded http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html?FRRBarcodePrinters=6882), warning "Ribbon in" is usually caused by the wrong printing method (thermal direct instead of thermal transfer [which should be selected for ribbbons]). My error disappeared after choosing "thermal transfer" directly on the printer. For network printers this needs to be set by an admin in the network settings for the the printer to solve the problem permanently.
