Question about Intermec EasyCoder 3400e Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Crinkled ribbon I have two Intermec 3400e's that have problems where they get a crease in the thermal ribbon which produces visible lines in the printed label. While it is possible that this is a problem with the ribbon we have been getting lately, I have a dozen other printers that are running fine. I would like to try realigning the rollers, but cannot find the necessary tools to do so.

    These 3400's offer very little adjustment for either.

Try adjusting the head tension or ribbon tension.

    Crinkled ribbon can also be caused by heat or darkness settings being set too high. Try reducing the darkness to the lowest setting that still produces desirable output.

    You can see where it's creasing if you open the head mid-print.

    Also try the bias adjustment screw, that will help even out print pressure on the head as well.

Yellow light is lit (Empty/Pause) but there is paper in printer.


I've found that if the ribbon core is slipping on the TTR supply hub, it causes the ribbon sensor to think the ribbon is not moving. This, in turn, causes the yellow light to come on. Take off the ribbon and replace hub core locking bracket (p/n: 065375-003). I have also found you can bend the bracket enough to work if you don't have any on hand. I hope this helps with your problem.

Intermec 4400 printer fault. Ribbon fault. Looking for a service manual for this printer.


Ribbon fault when using Direct Thermal paper?? This one got me, too. Easy to correct, but issue was with driver & software from Intermec! To reset, go to OFFLINE READY, press MENU, Up/Down to OFFLINE CONFIGURATION, press SELECT, Up/Down to LABEL MEDIA TYPE, then SELECT, Up/Down to MEDIA TYPE DIRECT THERMAL, SELECT, ENTER and MENU out. To be sure, cycle power - and it works again.....
