SOURCE: Problem printing on Glossy Label [butterfly label] using Zebra TLP 2844 EPL

You must make sure that the ribbon is compatible with the label you are attempting to print on. It must be a permanent resin. We use the AXR7+ material. Try to avoid using such a high printer head temperature as this will reduce the life of the head.

SOURCE: Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Turn off the printer, then hold down the feed button while you turn it on again. After the configuration label prints, turn the printer off and on again,then try to print your labels.

If the barcodes still don't print, make sure they don't extand past the top, bottom or side of the label. If you software allows you to "clear the label cache" or "re-image the enitre label", try that.

SOURCE: Z4MPlus Ribbon wrinkles causing lines diagonally across label.

Could be down to tension on the ribbon roller/spool. Check to see if you have pulled out the end part of the spool (black bit) that should ensure there is back tension on the ribbon.

Check the drive belt. It might be missing a tooth if the printer is older. I can assist if you want to check this.

I am a Reseller and one of my client is having Citizen CLP-7202e. due to the faulty print head we have tried to change the print head and after changing a new print head, printer is not printing...


I have used this type of printer before. Long ago when it was called the C-ITOH. However, never had to change the print head before. I would imagine that if you did - all the adjustments would need changing. Bad Gap would skip labels and bad pressure would make them too light or too dark. If there are any vertical lines (even faint) the print head is damaged. Also, these things are very specific as to media vs ink roller. You cannot use a paper ink roller with mylar labels. Vise versa works but those rolls are more expensive. I am sure you have tested this already but you point pretty exclusively to the "new" print head with your testing. Sounds like you have answered your own question. I would do some continuity tests on the head to see if it carries any current at all. Good Luck!

Zebra 105sl laebls always come out blank


Power on while holding the pause button for 5 seconds. This should print black bar across the width of the label. If this prints, then check the darkness parameter in your label format or driver. Also check to make sure your ribbon is feeding coated side out. There is a shiny side and a dull side to a ribbon. The dull side should be against the media. If it is leaving an image on the ribbon and nothing on the label the ribbon is either loaded incorrectly or not a zebra ribbon.

Printer Ribbon has a wrinkle in it


Remove the ribbon and try to remove the crease. Check the printhead for obstructions. You may have to open up both halves of the ribbon cartridge to look for jams or obstructions.

TAKE UP RIBBON


I work with Zebra printers daily and I have found several ways to enable a stuborn ribbon motor. The S300 is the hardest to turn on but unless the belt has broken or come off it can be done. The S400 and S600 are much easier, below are a couple step that work for me.

Enabling/Disabling the Ribbon motor

Turn off the printer.
Disabling the motor – Press the FEED, CANCEL and MODE buttons while turning the printer on. Continue to hold the buttons until the lower two lights go out.
Enabling the motor – Open the printhead and retract the ribbon completely onto the supply spool. Leave the printhead open. Press the PAUSE, FEED and CANCEL buttons while turning the printer on. Continue to hold the buttons until the lower two lights go out. When the printhead light begins to blink, reinstall the ribbon and close the printhead.
The printer may or may not print out a ribbon sensor profile, this is normal. Cycle the power and you should be good to go.
