Question about Epson TM-U220 Matrix Printer
Here's how I fixed mine... Looking at the inside closer, I realized that the ribbon tray (the metal assembly that the ribbon sits in) was bent upward in the bottom right hand corner; making the ribbon sit too high in the tray. I slipped a screwdriver under the bent area, applied presuure to straighten out the tray, and voila! It works fine now printing in both red and black. I'm guessing that people are are pulling back on the tray assembly when changing the ribbon resulting in slight bending over time.
