Question about Unisonic Vintage XL-121 Printing Calculator

1 Answer

So I have recently acquired a ultrasonic printing calculator, but the ink ribbon has dried out and there is no paper. I was wondering where there is cheap paper and if I need to buy a whole new ribbon or just some ink and where to buy those as well

If the ribbon is fabric, you have to get a replacement. As for paper check several suppliers if you want to buy quantity otherwise a roll will do.

Print is very light even after replacing ribbon.


My first thought is that the numbers being "hammered" against the paper are not reaching far enough. Test this theory by putting two layers of paper into the paper feed, (Fold the end of the roll over onto itself) and try printing again. It could be designed for a thicker paper.
Alternatively the new ribbon may also have dried out. Rub the ink ribbon with a paper, or pencil eraser and see if the ink readily comes off, perhaps use a pencil eraser to press it against the paper being fed through the machine.

These are diagnostics to find the error. Further investigation might be to see if there is any particles in the machine preventing it from hammering the numbers against the paper. Something might be in the way of the moving parts, something about the size of a paper hole punch paper, or pencil shaving. Shaking it vigorously upside down might solve this problem.

Good luck ;)

How do you change ink on a canon p20-dh calculator


For accounting offices and stores, calculators that produce a printed paper are indispensable. Canon's desktop or commercial printing calculators use ribbon tape, and you'll need to change the ribbon when it is used up. All Canon desktop and commercial printing calculators use the same method for changing the ribbon.
  • Turn off the calculator.
  • Pull up on the tab on the far side of the printer cover to remove the cover.
  • Pinch together the ribbon lock (the arrow shows you the direction to pinch). Lift the ribbon spools off the shafts and discard them.
  • Separate the new ribbon spools. Guide the ribbon tape around the four guiding pegs and set the spools on the shafts. The spools should be peg side down.
  • Rotate the spools so the peg at the bottom of the spool goes into the hole of the spool holder. Release the ribbon locks.
  • Rotate the spools to make the ribbon taut, keeping the ribbon positioned around the guide pegs.
  • Replace the printer cover and turn the calculator on.

I replaced the roll of paper and now it will not


The Casio DR-T220 does not use regular adding machine tape, it requires a thermal tape since it is a thermal printer. There is no ink or ink ribbon in this caculator, it is heat activated and it is the special paper that make the numbers appear. Thermal tape is available at all office supply stores.

Printing is very faint. How to change or add ink printer device.


This is most likely a ribbon impact system. Any office supply store should have the ribbon you need, with information on compaitability on the package.

Remove the paper roll and gently but firmly pry on the bezel surrounding the paper exit path. Examine the sides of the ribbon casing for any clips or fasteners.

Hi there, there are a couple possibilities. First, Remove the cover where the paper feeds out, if there is a ribbon or an ink roller in there it will need replacing. This you can get a staples. The other possibility is, if there is no ribbon or ink roll, it is probably a thermal printer which means is uses a special heat sensitive paper. If this started when you changed the paper, this is most likely the problem. This you can also get at staples!
