Question about Computers & Internet
Have a look at the ends of the ribbon to see if any of the connections are exposed, they will look like brass or gold, if they are you may possibly be able to put is back in place. the ribbon goes in the ink carrage at the right of the printer (the unit that slides up and down to print accross a page) and is also connected to the left or right hand side of the printer, this is all internal and you have to take the printer apart
If the plastic coating covers the whole ribbon cable, or just at one end, this means the ribbon cable has snapped and you will probably have to buy a new printer
