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 ;)

I cannot get the calculator canon MP121-DH to print on the paper roll. Any suggestions


This paper will only print on one side. Try flipping the roll over so that it tries to print on the opposite side.

Why does my Canon MP49D calculator print light?


Could it be you are using old ribbons? Are you using the correct ribbons?
did you put in the ribbon correct and is the ribbon transported, while it is printing, or is it stuck in the calculator. Just some questions to check out.

Print is very light and I put in a new ribbon. This printer is hooked to a parallel port on an AVAYA phone system terminal. I don't believe there is an option to download drivers. Not sure why the new...


Hi
Check if the ribbon is seating correctly, the Avaya PBX does not have a driver for this that is correct also some printers have a "draft"setting make sure this is off as the printer will only go once over the print in draft

Put new ribbon cartridge in ibm wheelwriter 3 not printing now


If the ribbon is lifting up you probably have a cracked print solenoid plunger cap. They are available but a little tricky to install.

New ctg. change problems


In the printing preferences there is an auto detect ribbon button . you should select it.
Your ribbon will be updated. Also if printer asks you if the ribbon is correct select yes. The printer will then print on whatever ribbon you have intalled. This doesnt work with test prints
