Question about Toshiba TEC B-472 Thermal Label Printer
I do a run of labels. Doesn't matter how many. Runs fine. I try to run a second printing, ribbon error on LED, The ribbon is loose and not touching the sensor.
I wind the spool backwards just a tiny bit. It's fine. I have to do this after every single run of labels.
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
