Re: Transfer ribbon

Remove the transfer cartridge, loosen the ribbon slightly and put it back in. This works for me!

How to clean the print head

No easy way to clean the print head. You will need to remove it from the printer to gain access to the area to clean. What does the label look like on the disc? Streaks is probably a dirty print head. If sections of the label are missing it could be the print head or heat roller. Look at the re-transfer (clear) ribbon. If the missing part of the label is left on the ribbon you have a heat roller issue.

Using CD Designer I try to print my disc on my Everest II printer and it appears to be printing and then the tray opens and the disc is blank - "no image printed on the disc" I do not get any...

Check the ribbons. If your CD image is still on the color ribbon your print head is probably bad. If the image is on the transfer ribbon replace the heat roller.

I'm including this link to the users manual:

But here is the basic troubleshooting info for that issue

No print on the label.The media may not be direct thermal media when printing without ribbon (i.e. thermal
transfer). See the test procedure

Determining Thermal Media Types on page 29.
• For thermal transfer printers, the media may not be outside wound or approved for use in
the G-Series printer. See the following ribbon test procedures: Ribbon Test with Adhesive
on page 32

and Ribbon Scratch Test on page 33.
• Is the media loaded correctly? Follow the instructions for

Loading Roll Media on page 11
in the Getting Started section. For printing using transfer ribbon, see

Loading Transfer Ribbon
on page 14.

110xi111plus error code: warning ribbon in? what does that mean?

that ribbon occures when you are set for thermal direct printing in the driver or printer and you should be set for thermal transfer in the driver in printing defaults off of the advanced tab and the printer needs to be set for thermal transfer in print method in the setup menu. thermal transfer is printing with black ink ribbon and paper and thermal direct is just chemicaly treated paper.

Vertical fading lines

Sounds like dust on the CMY ribbon. Did you try a new color CMY ribbon?

Possibly the printer has dust floating around on the inside, but if balck prints good, that may not be.

Clear plastic ribbon came out of printer

Firstly, see if the printer still works. Print something. Then I suggest bringing it into where you purchased the printer. If a twenty month old child pulled it out I am sure it was not burried inside the printer and a Rep at the store can fix it immediately with out cost. Do not let them charge you. Just let them know that this ribbon came out and you do not know where it goes. If the printer works without it, don't worry about it, but keep the ribbon tucked away somewhere and when you go back to the store, when it is convient, have them take a look at it. Let me know how it goes.
