    Again needs no details. Printer worked fine, now keeps saying the ribbon is out evn though it isn't.

    No, it won't even make it thru the calibration, it errors in the middle. Previous passes it did make it thru then it will work for a label and then error again. I think the sensor is malfunctioning.

X2600 fails to install


I got around the "blank description" error by repairing lexmark's .deb file.

It is too many steps.

Here goes:

Run their installation .sh script.
Do NOT press OK at the error.
Pull up a terminal editor.
cd /tmp/self*
tar xvpf arch.tar
mv lex*deb /home
cd /home

then go over to http://superuser.com/questions/280370/how-to-easly-edit-control-file-in-deb-package
and see a nice little script which you can save to a file called x
sh x

(edit the control file so the Description: has one line here. delete the rest.)
save it and the script rebuilds the .deb

If you can read the script you could do it all manually which I did.
then do:
dpkg -i lexmark-inkjet-08-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb

to install the lexmark driver.
Yay it works!

Lexmark did a blank line in the Description and then a big paragraph with how they built the .deb file. The above simply fixes that Description to one line instead of a paragraph and rebuilds their .deb file.

My printer show the error 99 Ribbon Break/Jam but the ribbon is ok is not broken and i can not see some jam. Can you help me


Pls do the following:-

Ribbon Break/Jam
(PC Error Message No. 99, 108 and 109)

The Ribbon is not able to find the next panel correctly. Check for jams/breaks.

If jammed, clear the jam. If broken, repair by taping the Ribbon back on to the take-up core.
Press Resume to continue or Cancel to abort.

Thank You...........

I have a Zebra 105 SL, I have the ribbon installed but the printer tells me that the ribbon is out. I've tried changing the ribbon and labels out but as soon as I power it back up and try printing again...


Calibrate the printer from the setup menu.

You'll (1) Load the label backing with the ribbon (2) remove the ribbon - just shove it to the right, out of the way of the ribbon sensor (3) reload the label and ribbon.

The printer will run a number of labels out.

Hi,

There are several reasons to get this 5010 error in your printer but the most common one will be you would have caused this after pulling the printer to bits to fix a blockage. You can fix this issue by inserting the ribbon cables from the scanner into the circuit board properly.

Thank you !!

Hardware error 0504


Thank you for contacting to Fixya regarding your printer error message 0504.

I would like to inform you that error 0504 refers to encoder strip.

The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

Next, try to print the self test.
