Question about Toshiba TEC Office Equipment & Supplies
We only use direct thermal labels with our printer. We recently had to do a factory reset and have been unable to convince the printer it doesn't need a ribbon. I've tried searching the manual and menus but can't get any settings to take.

First of all, With any Toshiba label printer, after a parameter reset, you must send a label before doing a feed. Otherwise the printer will try to feed the ribbon.
You can use the setting tool to tell set the printer to direct thermal also.
Easiest way is to use the windows driver , add a label format coresponding to the one you are using, verify in the support tab that you are in direct thermal, do a test test print from the driver and you'll solve your problem

To calibrate media, go on the setings to "sensor profile" and/or "run manual calibration, follow the steps. (dont forget to take the ribbon from the sensor.)

You have to set the ribbon type to be "non-transmissive" for black transfer film.
To set the ribbon type, turn the printer off. Then press and hold the "feed" and "pause" buttons while turning on the power. The printer will now be in diagnostic mode - you can page through the menus until it says "ribbon type"
Pick the correct type and press the "pause" key to save the value. Then turn off the printer and turn it on again normally. The ribbon error goes away.
