did it stay on direct thermal if you not doing any print job ?
then i assume you the problem is when you printing .In ZEBRA DESIGNER, there's a printing preference that can be set up... i think u selected direct thermal when you print with zebra designer, that's why whenever u start printing, it show RIBBON IN again.
the solution is, Just changed the printing method from zebra designer.
if you aren't using zebra designer, then the problem at your driver. Open Printer & Faxes, then right click your Printer and klik on Printing Preferenced. There u can set up the printing method to Thermal Transfer.
The thing is....... changing the Setting from LCD panel won't change the setting on the driver.
i hope this will help you

SOURCE: I was wondering what could
Not sure what coud cause this. Have any kind of windows updates possibly been allowed that has interferred with the printer protocol?
Here is the Zebra manual, and on page 124 they list things to try to check the communication, and you might run through those:
Not sure if it would help, but you might try a self test on the printers, just to insure they're ok. If that goes well, I would think there's some kind of a software conflict going on in the computers.
Wish I had more, but this is a tricky problem.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
