    New Zebra approved ribbon.

    Problem seems to be with Ribbon sensor. The Ribbon led goes to 170 after the calibration procedure. Can turn it down to 80 and get it to print but goes right back up after calibration.

    Zebra recommended air. I also wiped it off. I took a good look at it and it seems clean. Any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Decided to forget the autocalibration and do it all manually. Seems like a better option than a new Printer !

Zebra 105SL Ribbon Out Error BCTP
You may need to default your printer by powering down, hold the pause and feed keys while powering back on for around 20 sec. You will need to adjust the darkness again as it will be set to 10. Also see the link above.

New or old ribbon?

    yes..that would make sense..the sensor needs to be clear and unobstructed, from ink, particles, paper elements, etc. Do you know how to clean that area out? Do you have a warranty on this?

    got backup for your computer?

    maybe, just maybe, a new printer?

We have a Zebra 105SL thermal printer. When I print to it with any application, the error light and paper out comes on.


Sounds like it may need a calibration. Press the calibration button on the front of the machine.

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.

Zebra 105SL runs out of ribbon, the printer still continues to run, have tried calibration, still not stopping when ribbon runs out


Make sure that you have the printer set for THERMAL TRANSFER printing and not DIRECT THERMAL. It is possible to run the printer in DIRECT THERMAL MODE with the ribbon installed so in that case when the ribbon runs out the printer will not stop.

We have a Zebra 105SL thermal printer. When I print to it with any application, the data light comes on, but it doesn't print. It has ribbon, media, calibrated, no error lights


The data light indicates that the printer is receiving data. Hold the cancel key for 10 seconds while powering on. This will print printer configuration. Use to troubleshoot. If the data or format is wrong it will not print as you send data. Make sure you are using the 105SL printer driver. To test the printer functionality you can go to www.teklynx.com and download a demo copy of labelveiw, select the 105SL printer and try to print a simple label. If you can print with labelveiw then it is not a printer problem. Double check your driver and label format.

Zebra 105sl laebls always come out blank


Power on while holding the pause button for 5 seconds. This should print black bar across the width of the label. If this prints, then check the darkness parameter in your label format or driver. Also check to make sure your ribbon is feeding coated side out. There is a shiny side and a dull side to a ribbon. The dull side should be against the media. If it is leaving an image on the ribbon and nothing on the label the ribbon is either loaded incorrectly or not a zebra ribbon.

The Zebra 105sl is not printing fluently. By that I mean it will print two rows of labels, then stop for two rows, then print two rows again. My question is how do I get it to print continuessly without...


1st try to calibrate the machine. It might not like the media (labels) you have in it. Try the basic calibration by going through the menu and print the sensor profile. If that doesn't work, try the media and ribbon calibration option.
