Question about Sharp EL-2615G Calculator

1 Answer

The ribbon is no longer printing on the tape.

I feel the ribbon is too new to need to be replaced. Is there a switch to have the ribbon tape reversed to run the opposite direction (like the ribbon typewriters used to work)? Thank you.

Re: The ribbon is no longer printing on the tape.

Are you sure it uses a ribbon? Or does it use an ink roller. If it uses a ribbon it should reverse by it self. Make sure it is installed properly, there is not a ribbon reverse switch it should do it automatically. if its installed right.

How do you change ink on a canon p20-dh calculator

For accounting offices and stores, calculators that produce a printed paper are indispensable. Canon's desktop or commercial printing calculators use ribbon tape, and you'll need to change the ribbon when it is used up. All Canon desktop and commercial printing calculators use the same method for changing the ribbon.
  • Turn off the calculator.
  • Pull up on the tab on the far side of the printer cover to remove the cover.
  • Pinch together the ribbon lock (the arrow shows you the direction to pinch). Lift the ribbon spools off the shafts and discard them.
  • Separate the new ribbon spools. Guide the ribbon tape around the four guiding pegs and set the spools on the shafts. The spools should be peg side down.
  • Rotate the spools so the peg at the bottom of the spool goes into the hole of the spool holder. Release the ribbon locks.
  • Rotate the spools to make the ribbon taut, keeping the ribbon positioned around the guide pegs.
  • Replace the printer cover and turn the calculator on.

unfortunately the printer is out of time or the selector pawls got bent. would be cheaper to buy a new one than fix this.

I replaced the roll of paper and now it will not

The Casio DR-T220 does not use regular adding machine tape, it requires a thermal tape since it is a thermal printer. There is no ink or ink ribbon in this caculator, it is heat activated and it is the special paper that make the numbers appear. Thermal tape is available at all office supply stores.

How to open to change ribbon on a Canon mp25dv

Remove the paper tape by pulling it back out of the calculator.

Feel along the back of the calculator right below where you insert the paper tape for a ridge. Gently lift up on this ridge and a plate will lift out of the machine exposing the ribbon.

Make a note to yourself as to how the old ribbon is in the machine before removing the old ribbon. Just gently lift straight up on both of the spools and the ribbon will lift out of the machie.

When you insert the new ribbon make sure that the ribbon is feeding off of the back side of both spools. You can use a small screwdriver or toothpick etc to position he new ribbon to keep the ink off of your fingers. Make sure the new ribbon feeds around the plates on both sides of the machine and it fits behind the roller that has all the numbers on it and that the red portion of the ribbon is on the bottom.

Take the plastic plate that you removed first and insert the tabs in the front underneath edge of the case on the front and gently push the back side of the plate straight down till it smaps into place.

Refeed the paper tape back into the machine and you are finished!

Hope this helps.

Replacing inking roller/ribbon?

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.
