Why is my ribbon tearing?


Ribbon usually gets teared due to the heat of the print head being set to high. Go to MENU MODE / PRINT CONTROL / HEAT and select a heat setting of 12 or 14.

If after the change affects your print quality being poor, your ribbon and label type combination is wrong or your print head needs to be re-aligned.

Hope this helps, good luck. (",)

Evolis tears ribbon


You have to put darkness setting down on your driver.
2 chances: a) you have the headset with too much temperature due to darkness setting, or you are printing a particular color like metallic blue, gray or intense yellow that can make headset hotter.
b) When you say you have just a left side printed, i remembered customers that set the ribbon to 1/2 YMCKO, check it's not your case

My 510s is having issues with printing. The print ribbon is sticking to the paper, thus tearing the ribbon and causing a paper jam.


Remove any slack in the ribbon by turning the ribbon-tightening knob, or reinstall the ribbon cartridge...

First Turn the printer off, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper if paper is jammed..

We had a power failure and now our Lexmark 2391 dot matrix printer will not print from the top of the page. i need to know how to setup/reconfigure the top of the page? thank you


  1. Push the ALT button and then the PARK LOAD button to back the paper out.
  2. Push the PARK LOAD button to reload the paper. The Ready light should now be blinking.
  3. Use the MICRO up or down buttons to adjust as needed, making sure that the top of form is set on the very first page that enters the printer. Typically, the top edge of the first sheet of paper should be even with the ribbon.
  4. When the page is lined up properly, press the START/STOP button. The printer will record the current position as the top of form and then feed paper to the tear off position.
  5. Use the MICRO up and down buttons to place the top of the paper at the tear off bar.
  6. After the tear off is positioned properly, press the START/STOP button twice to save the tear off position.
  7. Test the positions with a sample print job. If the alignment is still off, follow this entire procedure from the beginning again as needed.

I have an Epson LX-300 dot matrix. The problem is the print is smudged/with black lines patches along the printed matter. The ribbon mask is lost. I'm curious to know the purpose of this ribbon mask. Does...


The mask stops this sort of problem and the print head could do with cleaning so that the pins don’t get stuck. The ink coagulates over the years and causes the pins to jam and eventually tear up ribbons of just burn up the driver coils in the head assembly. The head face needs cleaning with a cotton bud or two or three with isopropyl alcohol to remove all the ink residue from the pins and shafts. If you can remove the head assembly this is much easier to do.

Zebra S600 Thermal Ribbon Ripping after printing


Hi chunnon,

What darkness setting are you using? If the darkness is at or near 30, you may be burning through the ribbon.

Try defaulting the printer and running a Pause test. Does the ribbon tear during the Pause test?

Printer error, only prints one color


Did any of the ribbon come away, or tear when it broke, i have heard of small pieces lodging in the carriage or feeder. Check this very thoroughly as blockages can be very tiny. Check you correctly inserted the ribbon too, and it is the correct type of ribbon for your unit. (sounds silly but sometimes it ccan be that simple) try reinstalling printer, is the ribbon cartridge faulty? check it.
