Sato uses outside wind ribbon and inside label.
you shouldn't have to configure anything as long as the ribbon spindle turns and registers movment

Adjusting Datamax i class


If the ribbon is moving right on the I-4208 so far that you aren't getting print on the left of your label, the typical solution is to make sure that your ribbon roll is pushed all the way in, as far as it will go (at the top center of the printer on the black hub where the ribbon and it's cardboard core slide on). Similarly, make sure that the used ribbon that is winding on to the Rewind Hub at the top front is also in (to the left) as far as it will go).

heck that the the value of the ribbon motors is not set to -15.

The ribbon is printing blank labels


Is this the correct ribbon for a Datamax? The ribbon (satndard setup) is for the ribbon to inside wound whereas most printers are outside wound.

You can check this by using the sticky side of a label it will pull off ink (turn black) if it is there.

If this is the wrong ribbon do not be tempted to put it in the other way or you could damage the ribbon supply spool.

My ribbon is coming out with the label. the front spindle is not rolling.


You have to calibrate the printer. It thinks there is no ribbon (thermal mode) so it's not winding the ribbon up. The instructions are on page 11 of the manual -
4.2 Ribbon Sensor Calibration
Note: Please make sure the ribbon is properly installed before doing this calibration.
Please follow the steps below to calibrate the ribbon sensor.
1. Turn the printer power off.
2. Press and hold the FEED button then turn on the printer.
3. The LED will turn orange then blink red 5 times. Release after the first red blink and before the 5rd.
4. If the ribbon is properly installed the light will turn green. If it is not it will turn red and blink.

Ribbon Error, ribbon roll seems sloppy


I hope this information will help. If you have the manual, can you check and make sure that the ribbon is threaded through the right path. If it's not, there won't be enough tension on the ribbon and the ribbon will get sloppy as you use it. If my information was helpful, please rate it. Thanks for using FixYa.com

I thought the PT65 took a thermal tape that didn't have an ink ribbon. Compare the part number on the tape cassette with the list of compatible types listed in the labeller's instruction manual. Believe the only compatible cartridges are: M-Knnn/B, where NNN is one of 221, 222, 223, 231, 232, 233, 521, 531, 621 or 631, or M-K221S/B or M-K231S/B A.
