Ribbon problem The printer keeps saying their is a problem with the ribbon. What's up?

    My Olympus P10 printer keeps having a problem with the ribbon. The ribbon light flashes, and the unit shuts down. I put in a new ribbon, with the same result. When I take the ribbon out, it is a bit scrambled, but not torn. I then readjust the tension in the manner described in the instruction manual, and try again. The print comes out from the previous attempt - just a smudge of yellow. With each new printing attempt, the ribbon gets crumpled. It is very frustrating. What do I do to rectify this problem?

Bought a DTC520 and replaced Printer ribbon and now message reads " No Printer Ribbon Installed" Used Part # 86031 DTC500-YMCKO I powered down machine and started again, still NO Ribbon...

You have to check which ribbons are loaded.
Depending on that you have to select the appropriate mode in the driver else it'll keep giving this message.
Y = yellow
M = magenta
C = cyan
K = black
O = overlay
May be you don't have overlay loaded

My Printronix P5005B says "RIBBON STALL" what

Remove the ribbon and check for play when turning the plastic ribbon hub by hand. If it is loose try tightening with a torx bit. But it is probably cracked and needs to be replaced.

DTC550 Fargo printer it says out of ribbon with new installed

Check to see if the RFID (green ring) from the old ribbon has come off and is stuck near the reader (located behind the green stem). I've seen that happen. I've also see some bad RFID rings. If that happens they should have a warranty from Fargo.

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon

PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

Keep getting broken ribbon message on zebra P330i printer

Hello, assuming the supplies are Zebra and there is no discernible damage to the ribbon, it could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. if your printer is still under warranty you can ship back to Zebra (Illinois) to get it repaired. The zebra website has info on how to return printers for service. Hope this helps.

Tec 572 printer gives "no ribbon" error with ribbon installed

You have to set the ribbon type to be "non-transmissive" for black transfer film.
To set the ribbon type, turn the printer off. Then press and hold the "feed" and "pause" buttons while turning on the power. The printer will now be in diagnostic mode - you can page through the menus until it says "ribbon type"
Pick the correct type and press the "pause" key to save the value. Then turn off the printer and turn it on again normally. The ribbon error goes away.
