SOURCE: Sony UP-DR150 4x6 "ribbon error"

The black spool of the ribbon has a built in chip, If that chip is damaged it renders the ribbon unuseable. Be very careful if you take out party used ribbons and re insert them later.

My DR 150 Sony printer will not print. It queues up in the printer queue. This has just started to happen. I have printed hundreds previously.

Can't be absolutely sure but it sounds as if the printer may be set to "offline". Have you checked this? Go to the printer queue window and click on "Printer" and make sure "Use printer offline" is not ticked. If it is untick and you should be underway again.
If it isn't ticked then unplug the printer from the computer and the mains, clear the printer queue completely and then shut down the computer and all peripherals and disconnect them from the mains. Wait a few minutes then plug all the peripherals in and turn them on, lastly plug in and boot the computer. This may clear any errors within the system.
It might also be worth unplugging the printer from the computer and re-installing the drivers to see if that works. If you have mislaid the manual it can be obtained in pdf format from here:
Sony UP DR150 Operating Instructions Manual
by clicking on the green download button on the left near the top of the page, entering the 3 letters that you are shown on the next page and then downloading it.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Need remote code for Toshiba DR150 dvd player

For which remote exactly. Each manufacturer of programmable/learning remotes has their own code base and unique numbers for each code.

Asking for a code is like asking for the postcode/zip code of Acacia Avenue but without specifying the city and district.

One thin line appears in the prints, close to the bottom. what should i do to correct the problem? and if the head needs to be replaced where is the cheapest place to buy?

When the head have lines , the problem is in the drum. The drum in that printer maybe is to expensive but you will try to get in ebay.

I have a Sony UP-DR150 digital photoprinter that displays "Check Ribbon" I have tried changing both ribbon and paper at the same time but still keep getting same message, any ideas?


Have you tried to Replace the Ribbon and Paper? Make sure the Ribbon must be Compatible and of Appropriate Size. It should not be loose. This message would Appear until Door is Open. Once you Replace the Ribbon and close the door, the message would disappear.

If not, Unplug the Printer for Few Minutes, say 15 minutes and then Turn it ON. That would Reset it.

Note - There was an Upgrade that was done for the software. If you have not Upgraded the software, this message would be there. Upgrade the Software and the message would disappear.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
