NOTE: The inside cover of the printer has medialoading instructions for vendors.

  1. Open the lid of the printer by pressing in on the two (2) Blue buttons on both sides of the printer, and lift upward.
  2. Press down on the Green Printhead Latch, and raise the Printhead Carrier assembly to a vertical and locked position.
  3. Remove the Ink Ribbons (Supply and Take-up Hubs/Spindles) from the Printhead Carrier by pushing in, and lifting up.
  4. Slide both ribbons off the hubs, and discard them into the trash.
  5. Slide an empty core onto the take-up hub. (The attached new roll of ribbon includes a new supply hub.)
  6. Unroll a 1-foot length of ribbon. (The foiled side will need to be facing the Printhead and rollers.)
  7. Insert the supply hub/ribbon into the rear spring-loaded spindle.
  8. Starting from the back of the Printhead Carrier, thread the take-up hub/core in between the black guide bar and the two (2) aluminum rollers.
  9. Continue past the Printhead, and over the 3rd aluminum roller.
  10. Insert the take-up hub into the spring-loaded spindle 'star' hole.
  11. Position the license paper (media) over the rubber roller to the edge of the opening with one hand.
  12. With your other hand, lower the Printhead Carrier to its locked position.
  13. Close the printer lid.

The paper is coming out, but nothing is printed on it that you can read

Have you replaced the ink ribbon recently?

Open the lid and make sure the ink ribbon is not twisted or slack -- it should be straight and flat, between the print heads and the paper.

Close the lid and hold the feed button on the top while you turn the printer on. This will put it in self-test mode and it will keep printing until you turn it off again.

Does the self-test printout look any better than your normal prints?

If any of that helps, please be sure to hit the thumbs-up button for me.

A back-to-back cable is available for the Omni terminals to copy the DL from one terminal to another. Finding one is the problem though for merchants. I do have one for our shop use.

Verifone 250

The Verifone 250 doesn't have keys. What are you talking about?
If you mean that it just isn't printing, verify that the ribbon is properly inserted and the impact setting is correct.

We found that it was neither the thermal paper roll nor the thermal component. The cover did not close tight enough and that caused the print-put to be light or missing printed areas.
