I have a brand new zebra tlp2844 I have set it up with a resin ribbon, the print quality is very poor and patchy why is this ?

There are a couple of possible solutions.
1/ Resin ribbons are meant to be used on synthetic labels onle ie vinyl or polyester. If you are trying to print on paper labels then you will get a rubbish print. you need to use either a wax ribbon or a wax resin ribbon.

2/ If you are printing onto a synthetic labels and the print is light, try increasing the "print darkness" some times called contrast or heat or printhead setting.. This can be fount in the printer set up in the labels software you are using or in the print drive under "Print Preference"

Zebra S600 not printing..replaced ribbon withe as paper/ribbon light solid..still no print after attempting reprint many times (the printing result are white labels)

Just a thought, Zebra Ribbons are Coated Side Out. Take a piece of tape and press it against the ribbon, ink should come off on the tape.

If not then make sure the ribbon is the correct type and that you have it loaded properly. Also, if you use multiple ribbons i.e. wax, wax resin or resin make sure that you have the correct ribbon for the media installed.

Hope that helps.

I wanted to know what type of ribbon does Eltron TLP 2742 take and what is product number and how much are they?

The quality depends on the type of support you are using
It can be wax / waxResin or pure resin
- Paper = wax ribbon or Wax /resin ribbon
- Plastics = Resin ribbon
Take care I think that the ribbon should be on 1/2 inch cores

Loaded ribbon correctly according to Zebra S4M Quick Reference guide....but won't print anything on labels.

The ribbon has wax just on one side. So, if nothing prints on the label, first thing I'd check if the ribbon loaded with waxed side facing label.

I'm trying to reorder a ribbon for the tlp 2844-z printer. The pn I have used previously was 800130-102. I can't seem to find this reorder number. Can you help me find a compatible ribbon for this product...

Just type the part number into google and you will get plenty of hits for sites selling that part number of zebra ribbon.

Resin rolling backward

The ribbon is loaded backwards. The ribbon can be loaded in two ways. In the industry, it is called coated side in or coated side out, meaning the ink side is either out or in. Zebra printers are all coated side out, or ink on the bottom side as it feeds off of the roller.

Temp is set at 28. printing on mylar black mark.Speed is factory setting I believe at 2 print is blurry and not dark. Using resin ribbon

I haven't tried yet but after doing extensive reading feel that the problem is in the ribbon type. I thought it was a resin wax blend but it was one that I had for awhile without any label on it and I'm thinking it may be just a wax and that is why it works on white labels but not on the poly or mylar.
