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.

Not card, not ribbon, not cleaning, not driver setting.
Does your black ribbon roll and never stops?

I have a Zebra 105 SL, I have the ribbon installed but the printer tells me that the ribbon is out. I've tried changing the ribbon and labels out but as soon as I power it back up and try printing again...


Calibrate the printer from the setup menu.

You'll (1) Load the label backing with the ribbon (2) remove the ribbon - just shove it to the right, out of the way of the ribbon sensor (3) reload the label and ribbon.

The printer will run a number of labels out.

do you have a printwheel in this machine (round grey disk with "fingers" evenly spaced around it with the charachters on it)? If not - there's your problem. you can repair the ribbon with a small piece of tape (no wider than the ribbon. stuck to the backside (shiny) of the ribbon then turn the ribbon until the taped part goes into the cartridge a ways. if the ribbon is moving ok and you still have a printwheel installed, make sure the ribbon is not getting caught in the printwheel.

I am not able to pring out labels , it sayse "error condition ribbon out and then Printer Idle V60.13.0.13Z The power light is green and solid the error light is blinking the check ribbon light is on solid...


The printer thinks it is out of ribbon. If the condition exists and there is still ribbon in the printer, then try pressing the CALIBRATE key to have the printer readjust for the label / ribbon. If that does not help then press the SETUP key, press PREVIOUS until you see a setting called RIBBON LED. Make sure there is a value there - should be somewhere around 30-40. If it is above 100, then lower the setting to 30. Then press SETUP again and press SAVE for a permanent save.

Hope that helps !

Won't print- red light lights up when printing a test page. I've tried resetting the printer (unplugging it and letting it sit for over 1 minute), I've attempted to uninstall the printer and reinstall,...


I have seen this problem a few times. The problem is occuring because the ribbon spool is popping off it's guide sprockets. Often it will pop itself back on. So when you open printer and look at the ribbon it looks fine. Solution. Make sure that the ribbon core is pushed firmly onto it's guide sprockets. You may have to push the ribbon out of the core with as the soft ribbon tends to fill the gaps in the cardboard ribbon core.
Comments: Apr 25, 2009- Easiest way to verify whether ribbon is causing problems is...

1: Remove ribbon from printer,

2: Perform a calibration routine with ribbon removed from printer.

if this works, (press feed button 6 times to verify correct operation)

3: Install ribbon and perform calibration again. If it does not calibrate properly then know that the ribbon is causing problem.

The button becomes red once I print a test page


The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but the printer has to be told by the driver not to expect ribbon or the red light will come on. Also not having the correct paper height set in the driver will make the red light come on as well so check the advanced tab in the properties of the driver then click printing defaults. In the ZDesigner driver height and width are entered there. In the zebra universal, its the same path but one extra click. Click paper output and enter the size.

The factory default setting for the S600 is thermal transfer (ribbon). depending on your OS there is a command that can be echoed to the printer to change the setting to direct transfer (non ribbon). It sounds like your printer thinks is should use a ribbon and in fact you are not using a ribbon. Here is the procedure I use to get the ribbon motor to turn on:
1. start with the printer turned off.
2. open the printhead, retract the ribbon completely onto the supply spool. leave the printhead open.
3. Press and hold the top three buttons (PAUSE, FEED and CANCEL) while turning on the printer. When the botom couple lights turn off release the buttons.
4. When you are left with the power light on and the printhead light blinking reinstall the ribbon and close the printhead.

The printer will autoclaibrate and run a sensor test.
Once complete the take up motor should have turned on and you should be able to use thermal transfer labels and a ribbon.
