Check error ribbon


Check the ribbon sensor and ensure there are not any debris stuck to / around it. Clean with highest Ispropyl Alcohol available.
Load a genuine Zebra ribbon and see if error is resolved.
If none of that works, turn it off, unplug it from power, turn it on while unplugged. plug it back in and turn it back on and see if the error returns.

Error condition ribon out for zebre 105 sl


This may be due to the fact that your ribbon is too translucid, back quality transfer films.
To overcome this you must use a bit of scotch and a piece of film and stick it on the ribbon sensor.
Else try a callibate to see if the error is not solved

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 thermal Label Printer prints blank with new supplies


Some possible reasons:
1. The darkness is not set high enough for the paper/ribbon combination
2. The ribbon is on backwards. Zebra uses coated-side out ribbons so the ribbon should be coming off the right side of the roll if you're looking at it from the side.

Hope that helps !

Error ribbon in is flashing in Z4Mplus printer althought its set to direct themal


this shouldn't stop it printing, could be a dirty sensor - under the printhead. it is a printhead open/ribbon sensor. try giving it a clean (its not the red one). if that doesn't work you can turn the ribbon sensor up to 100% in the menu. that usually stops the error if all else fails

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.
