That printer will work in both direct thermal (no ribbon) and thermal transfer (ribbon) modes. If you are using media designed for thermal transfer printing and don't have a ribbon it won't print anything.

You can also go into your printing preferences and change the intensity or darkness of the printing. This fixed the problem for us. Good luck!

Ink has run out ??? it no longer prints... TSP100 How do we change the ink roller/cartridge or whatever it requires?


TSP100 Thermal Printer work with a thermosensible paper, there is no ink to change, if the print quality is poor you have to
  • check the paper roller, it can be wrong installed.
  • Check the upper cover if not closed properly close it.
  • check the print head or the pressor roller.

How do i get the ink to print darker on the thermal paper? Is there an ink cartridge or refill kit ?


nope
no ink, no refill
thermal paper is special, when heated the "black" appears

pull some out and wave a lighter or match under it
or place it on the dash of your car in the sun for a few hours.
they do not print as black as inkjet or laser machines, but they are fast and cheap

The lights are flashing and it says "print cartridge error."


Hi,


When this error appears in your printer check if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel is with the cartridge. To fix this issue use theKleenex(perfume ) added with few drops of water to dampen it and clean off those contact on the holder. You should let the unit sit 24 hours for best results. Before printing anything run aligned thecartridgesa couple times then run cleancartridgesa couple of times. Print the test page to look for the condition.

Thank you !!

Ink is fading on my qx50


Dymo Labellers don't use ink, they are thermal printers. When the print fades it usually means the batteries are running out.

Try cleaning the print head as described in the user guide. There could be old ink clinging to the head. If this doesn't take care of the problem, you could have a burnt element, which is non-fixable problem.

Clogged print head


What you can try is going onto the Xerox.com site and loading what is call Jet Substitution it will change the ports being used.
That could help.
Load it to your laptop and then run. Sometimes helps.
Unfortunatly that is a very expensive print head.
