If you mean one of the ribbon cables, they usually go into a thin clip. This clip often has a releasable pressure fitting. Look for where you pulled the cable from and see if the fitting is two toned. If so use your fingernail to either pull the flap forward, to back.. various types. Place the cable back into the slot and press the clip back down.
If the ribbon is a (usually) white cable with a hard clear or blue end, then it likely goes into a solid pressure fitting. Just grab the hard plastic tab and push it back into the slot.

    From there you should be able to get the diagram you need, and the replacement cable you will need :)

Good morning. my printer will not calibrate. Could you please help me out?

Perform a Manual Calibration:
Perform a media and ribbon sensor calibration to reset the sensitivity of the sensors so the
media and ribbon are detected more accurately. If you change the type of ribbon or media,
your printer may operate better if you perform this calibration.

Calibrate Media and Ribbon Sensors
Use this procedure to adjust the sensitivity of the printer's sensors. In a
printer that has the Thermal Transfer option installed, both media and
ribbon sensors are adjusted. In a Direct Thermal printer (no Thermal
Transfer option installed), only media sensors are adjusted, and the LCD
displays for ribbon do not appear in this procedure.
Important • This procedure must be followed exactly as presented.
All of the steps must be performed even if only one of the sensors
requires adjustment. You may press the left arrow at any step in this
procedure to cancel the procedure.
How to select this parameter:
1. Press ENTER to start the calibration procedure.
2. Open the printhead.
3. Remove approximately 8 in. (203 mm) of labels from the backing,
and pull the media into the printer so that only the backing is between
the media sensors.
4. Remove the ribbon (if used).
5. Close the printhead.
6. Press ENTER.
The message CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT displays.
The printer adjusts the scale (gain) of the signals that it receives from
the media and ribbon sensors. On the sensor profile, this essentially
corresponds to moving the peak of the graph up or down to optimize
the readings for your application.
RELOAD ALL displays.
7. Open the printhead and pull the media forward until a label is
positioned under the media sensor.
8. Reload the media and ribbon (if used).
9. Close the printhead.
10. Press ENTER.
The message CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT displays.
The printer does a calibration; during this process, the printer
determines the label length. To see the new readings on the new scale,
print a sensor profile.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

The screen on my Samsung Intercept is black. The phone is on and working, but nothing shows up on the screen. Someone had advised us to fix the flexi ribbon in the phone. I need to know how to fix a flexi...

you will need to buy a "OEM Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 Motherboard Flex Cable Ribbon" they are 10 dollars good search that and an online store will pop up

then you need to dissemble your phone unscrew all your screws and take it apart, the ribbon cable dose not pull out it lifts off and insert the new one just take your time and be patient some parts need some force to come apart but not alot

here is a disassemble guide for an htc slider at 3:55 you see the ribbon cable

My ribbon broke, I don' t know how to fix it.

The ribbon has 2 little (feet) on the rear of the cartridge they hook into the ribbon deck and it just rocks into place. You can get a picture and instructions @ lexmark .com klick your way to publications. Be sure to advance the ribbon by hand a foot or so to be sure it isn't sticking to itself.

Replacing a panel control board on my LG RU42PZ61...

If they are the flat ribbons that seem like thin plastic or cardboard, typically they are hard to pull out. The ribbons on the logic board have press snaps, but those on the top boards are just tough to pull out. The key is not to bend them, but apply pressure with your thumb and index near the connector base and pull straight up. Here are some images from my unit:

Top Board Ribbons (Tight ribbon slots)

Lower Controller Boards (All those shiny dark ribbons have pressure snaps, much easier to deal with, but make sure they're secure and tight after you put them back in place)

Clear Ribbon

Well, the "ribbon" that was just pulled was the "RULER" it is the guide of the printhead... as you will look closely there are tiny vertical lines to it and as long as the clear ribbon thing is not broken. Putting it back, you will have to open the printer and insert that ribbon back to the back of the printhead and back to their proper holders. GOOD LUCK.

Pls. rate us properly. Thanks.
