Check that ribbon is installed correctly. Zebra ribbon only has ink on one side. ink side must be facing label. Use a label to check which side ink is on stick label onto ribbon and peel off.

Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

Locate your printer driver under devices and printers Right click on it and select "Printing Preferences" Choose the "Advanced Setup" tab Change media type to "Thermal Transfer" Be sure that "use printer settings" is NOT selected at the top left Click OK and you should be good. Note that any labels created prior to this change will need to be changed inside each label under the label setup.

You may have installed ribbon incorrectly.
Align the gears of ribbon spindle with gears on printer and second important thing is that ribbon should come from up not from down.

The printer breaks the silver hologram ribbon everytime i print.it only break the silver ribbon when i do holograms


If your ribbon is breaking while printing a card, there area few things to look at.

  • Check that the printer driver has the appropriate ribbon selected. If a different ribbon is selected on the driver other than what you are using in the printer. Go into the driver and change the setting to the correct ribbon.
  • Another reason your ribbon may be breaking is because the "X" offset is set too low or too high, in other words the printing is beginning too close to the left side of the card, or ending too much to the right side so when the print head goes down to print on the card, the ribbon gets sliced because the print head and the edge of the card knife the ribbon. In order to eliminate this problem, increase or decrease the "X" offset value. I recommend a minimum of three digits up/down depending on the circumstance. For example: X-offset = 06...increase X-offset to 09. If the "X" offset is to high...EX: X-offset = 20...decrease X-offset to 17. Do not increase or decrease the value by more than 5.
  • If ribbon appears melted onto card, the print head may be damaged. Do not try adjusting. Immediately contact your re-seller or Zebra technical support.
  • If ribbon is breaking and nothing is being printed onthe card, contact your re-seller or Zebra technical support.

RIBBON BREAKE


Several things can cause a ribbon to break. Let's start with the simplest - cleaning. Use your cleaning kit to clean the rollers and print head. If the rollers are dirty, cards can slip and cause ribbons to break. Another is the TOF setting. If the print image is too close to the front edge, the ribbon will break.

Check these 2 things and see if this helps!

these printers have a printhead seperate from the carts....therefore the ink in the lines and the printhead are very succeptible to drying out...if you haven't used the printer for any amount of time, it is very likely that there is coagulation in the lines....and in the print head...if you are dead set on keeping this printer, let me know and there are some other steps to try and save this printer....

Printing problem


Try to clean the light sensor inside the printer, you will see a white led on the top part of the case, match it to the bottom you will see a small hole on a plastic peice, that is the hole for the sensor.
