SOURCE: Intermec 3400E: Label prints


There are three common causes for this problem:

o An incompatible printer driver.

o The paper source is set incorrectly on a dot matrix printer.

o A custom label Down Page or Page Length setting is incorrect.

The resolution for each problem is listed below. Incompatible Printer Driver.
Contact the printer manufacturer to obtain the latest version of the driver for your printer. As an alternative, see your printer documentation for other printer models that your printer can emulate. Then, install the printer driver for one of those models.
For information about installing printer driver software in Microsoft Windows, see your Windows printed documentation or online help.
Paper Source Set Incorrectly on a Printer

1. On the File menu in Works, click Page Setup.

2. In the Page Setup dialog box, click the Source, Size, And Orientation tab.

3. Select the correct option in Paper Source. For example, if the Paper Source is set to Manual Feed and you are using tractor fed labels, change the Paper Source setting to Tractor Feed.

4. Click OK.

Custom Label Settings are Incorrect

5. Open the Word Processor label document in Works.

6. On the Tools menu, click Envelopes And Labels.

7. Click Custom Label.

8. Make sure the Down Page text box correctly reflects the number of rows of labels on the page you are using. Click OK.

9. Make sure the Page Length text box correctly reflects the length of the page you are using.

10. Click OK. Click Change Label.

SOURCE: when i give print ribbon come with paper

sounds like you have the wrong type of ribbon (POOR QUALITY) OR the ribbon could be set up wrong on the printer or you need to reajust the paper and ribbon guides.
Out of interest how old are the ribbons you are using - do you know the manufacturer date? A few years back I had this problem with one of my clients and it turned out that the ribbons had been sititng on the shelf for 4 year! These degrade quickly!

Why error on Intermec pm4i "ribbon Out"?

Sounds like there isn't enough tension or when the printer stops the roll is still moving forward. It usually moves quickly in reverse to pick up the slack but it's already too late. I've seen people put light boxes or other objects on the ribbon to help with the tension yet still let the ribbon pass by. I've had this happen but we were using an a spool that was longer and subsequently heavier than the standard retail. Our rep provided us with a hyperterm script we could send to the printer to account for the heavier weight, unfortunately it didn't really work until it was 10%-20% through the roll.

Yellow light is lit (Empty/Pause) but there is paper in printer.

I've found that if the ribbon core is slipping on the TTR supply hub, it causes the ribbon sensor to think the ribbon is not moving. This, in turn, causes the yellow light to come on. Take off the ribbon and replace hub core locking bracket (p/n: 065375-003). I have also found you can bend the bracket enough to work if you don't have any on hand. I hope this helps with your problem.
