Solution from Noel O'Kell fixed my issue. Also the two sensors below (ribbon and printhead)it should be clean, dont touch them, spray them with canned air. Also these couple of sensors should be as close as possible and in the best angle to be able to sense the reflection from the chromed metal piece sitting above them when the head is closed.

When I close the head, the alert 'Head open' doesn't disappear anymore until I switch the power off and on.


Please try to open the head full until it has contact with the magnet on the inner side of the housing, than close again and press pause key to release printer from pause mode. If calibration is activated, the printer should calibrate afterwards.

However, if there are further things and you are looking for the manual you will find it here:

iN THE DRIVER CHECK THE head TEMPERATURE ISSUE. Most certainly you do not heat enough to do the transfer.
Else your ribbon is not mounted correctly. Zebra has an out inking transfer film
