If I am not mistaken the EL1197 is the ink roller type. It has the red/black and it's the IR40T. If that's the one replace the ink roller. If it's a ribbon type then replace the ribbon. It's about $5. Email me if there is any problem
The new ink roller types are EA-781R-BK (Black) and, EA-781R-RD (Red).
To change the ink rollers.
1). Set the power switch to off.
2). Remove the printer cover. The little paper guard or, flap on top.
3). Remove ink rollers by turning each one counterclockwise and, pulling upwards. With the calculator facing you. Red is on the left and, black is on the right.
4). Install the new ink rollers in there correct position's. Simply press them in one at a time and, make sure they are secure.
5).Put the print cover back on.
If calculator prints blurry, the rollers may not be not secure. If you have any questions about this calculator simply post a comment and, I'll respond quickly.
I have a Casio FR-1211 Printing Calculator and I have the same problem. I removed the roller and tried inking the roller with "Sanford's Roll-On Stamp Pad Inker". It works beautifully ! I don't know how long it will last, but for now the print is dark and clear.
i had a problem with this as well and found a user manual online. I thought the whole thing came out but it doesn't. If you pull up on the little red thing on right and then the black one on the right you have it. Imagine that! That's all that you change. Then just put some new ones in and your good to go.
The manual for the Canon P170-DH calculator is found on the canon usa web site. It is 22 mg in size, but prints out to 4 pages in English, Spanish and French.
According to the manual: Use only Ink Roller CP-13.
There are four figures showing the steps, so you'll have to imagine it.
1. Turn power switch off.
2. Remove the printer cover (Figure1).
3. Hold the tab of the ink roller. Lift the ink roller out of the base (Figure2).
4. Insert the new ink roller into position. Push down on the center of the ink roller until it locks into place (Figure3).
5. Replace the printer cover (Figure4).
Print out the manual for yourself and put it in a safe place.
Unless the ink roller that you installed was dried out, usually, the replacement rollers just snap in place and are good to go. Check to make sure there is ink on the roller by either pulling the ink roller out again, and touching it with your finger. If no ink on your finger, you might have received a dried out replacement roller. Also the roller should be somewhat like a sponge. If you push against the sponge and it doesnt spring back and it stays indented, then the roller might also be bad. If you happen to have a bottle of ink for an ink pad, you can try soaking the roller with the ink so the roller is wet, (but not DRIPPING WET) and try it again in the calculator. IF you get some image for a little while, then I would say try a new fresh ink roller.
Hope this helps.
