Zebra 330i prints in pink or black on test print. New ribbon fitted.Cleaned and calibrated.


Either your print-driver settings don't match the ribbon installed, or you have a bad ribbon sensor. Check your driver settings via the Windows printer center screen (Win7: Start Button => Devices and Printers; WinXP: Start Button => Printers and Faxes); locate your Zebra printer, then right-click on it and select "Printing Preferences". Locate the tab for the ribbon setting, and ensure the setting here matches the ribbon you have loaded. NOTE - you must have Windows administrator rights for your Windows log-in ID to make any changes to the driver settings. Contact your network administrator if you do not have these elevated privileges, and they can log in and make any required change for you.

How to determine the formula of ribbon you need


Not all thermal transfer ribbon formulas print on all materials, the key is to match the label material with the proper ribbon. There are three main types of ribbon formulations used in most thermal printers.
Wax -
  • the least expensive
  • works best on thermal transfer paper labels (it may print on the other materials to some degree but will easily scratch off)
  • looks the darkest (more opaque) when unrolled and held in front of a light

Wax / Resin
  • this is a very wide ranging category, some formulas are the same price as wax, others can be almost the same price as resin
  • works best on thermal transfer labels paper, preprinted thermal transfer labels, and many polypropylene materials

Resin
  • the most expensive
  • the most durable
  • is UL approved when matched with a compatible material
  • works best on polyester and polyolefin
  • looks the lightest (more translucent) when unrolled and held in front of a light

Have tried to tape, wind, etc. as shown in the instruction manual but it repeatedly breaks. Interestingly enough when it does break it is always on the yellow panel which is entirely imprinted on the...


Ribbon breaks on those older models are usually traced back to only a couple of things.

1. The ribbon-type may be set incorrectly in the printer driver. The C30 and C30e color ribbon type if doing single- or dual-side printing in full-color is #044200 - YMCKO; the ribbon type if doing dual-side printing with full-color front and black-only back is #044210 - YMCKOK. Open the driver, then "Printing Preferences", select the "Device Options" tab and verify that the ribbon type setting matches what you're using. Note that you can only make a change to the setting if you have sufficient (Admin) Windows privileges.

2. There is a mechanical issue with the printer, where an o-ring is broken, or the head-lift motor has gone out. Either is very bad, as the printer has long been out of production and parts are no longer available. (But you can contact us for a replacement - new or refurbished!)

Good luck!

I have a few Datamax-I-4206 printers and some of them have the Thermal Transfer ribbons and some do not....Do I need to have Thermal Transfers or cant I just print to them without it?


If the unit is set up for either(with the thermal trasnfer option- ribbon unwind and rewind assembly) you can use either ribbon- with thermal transfer stock, or direct thermal- with direct stock.
You can tell the stock by rubbing something across the stock to see if it will turn black, that is direct thermal stock.
If using direct, go into the setup and select media type- direct thermal.
If using ribbon- use thermal trasnfer option. But remember to install ribbon before calibration as ithe printer will error on out-of -ribbon.

I am replacing my cd player/burner with a DVD writer model sh-s223 the attachments don't match what do I need to purchase


The sh-s223 is a SATA interface, you must have the older IDE/PATA type drive interface, this needs the wider IDE ribbon cable for data and a 4 pin MOLEX power plug.
You have bought the wrong DVD burner
You have 2 options
Return the drive and buy an IDE model... OR
Buy a sata expansion card, these can be bought for under £10

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon


PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

SP55 Datacard


Hello,
The printer does not know the the model of the ribbon installed and thinks it is a monochrome (single color) Print ribbon. You can verify this in the Driver toolbox under the supply tab, or in the advanced printing options.
The Datacard SP series printers use an RFID Radio freq. tag in the take up spool end of the ribbon. This identify s the ribbon model and supply use settings for the printer.
Make sure you have the most recent driver and firmware from Datacard, There is a firmware Update Available to help reading "weak" RFID tag's
Next try removing the RFID tag from another (old) ribbon and see if it that fixes the problem)
Aside from that you:
May have a counterfeit (non-Datacard) ribbon
A bad RFID tag
Someone removed your RFID tag
You need a firmware update (weak RFID tag)
A bad RFID reviver in the printer, which is a fairly cheap repair.
Basically try a new print ribbon if that does not correct the issue, have the printer serviced.

Broken ribbon message for my zebra card printer


It could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. Sounds like you need to send back to zebra for repair. This is free if printer is still under warranty. check out zebra's website for info on how to return printers for service.
