If I had a guess...this label material sounds old or stored improperly...possibly to much head pressure....I would suggest some known good material and retry.

Tip

Determining whether your ribbon is CSO or CSI


A ribbon used in thermal printing will be either:
  • CSO - Coated side out
  • CSI - Coated side in
The ink is on one side or the other of the roll of ribbon. To determine which side the ink is on, take a label and stick it to the ribbon and peel it back off. Ink will stick on the adhesive, turning it black on the side that has ink on it.

Some labels are very glossy and correctable ribbons don't stick well,
Try moving the impression to the hardest setting and setting it to bold print or get a lable with a matt finish.

I channged the ribbon and the printer will not print tried several thing but it look like everything goes ok but there is nothing printed on the labels


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.

Hi, my printer is printing blanks. Windows XP, Zebra ribbon I replaced the ribbon and still no luck. I tried setting the darkness to maximum, but that didn't work either. I tried the "dump"...


The zebra ribbon has ink on one side and the other side has a backcoating which protects the printhead. simple way to check is to peel off a label and momentarily stick to ribbon and remove. This will show you which side is inked.

If ribbon is installed correctly then reset the printer and re-calibrate it. 1. install labels and ribbon 2. power on printer. If you have a solid green light on then 3 turn printer off. 4 hold down feed key 5 power printer on and after 2 seconds release feed key. printer will perform a calibration routine and eventually print out status page. IMPORTANT 6 Hit Feed Key once more. Printer will display Out Of Dump message. Your printer has now been sucessfully calibrated.

Ribbon and media sticking together bypassing cutter


Make sure that the ribbon options are turned on the printer. If you recently switch from using thermal stock which doesn't require a ribbon, then it needs to be turned on in the control panel of the printer.

If it is on, remove the ribbon cartridge from the unit and manually turn the wheels to make sure it is moving freely.

Your ribbon is not firm enough - roll the ribbon at the top until it is firm. If it is too loose it will stick to the paper. Follow directions to ensure that ribbon is installed properly.
