I HAV A DATAMAX I-CLASS PRINTER IT IS SAYING THAT I HAVE A RIBBON FAULT AND THE PRINTER IS THERMAL


Thermal can mean "Direct Thermal" (no ribbon) or "Thermal Transfer" (with ribbon). If you want to print using Direct Thermal labels you need to select Direct Thermal from Media Settings in the Menu accessed from the Control Panel on the front of the printer. Otherwise, the printer sensors will look for a ribbon that is not there, and you will see an error message.

PRINTER IS NOT PRINTING rUNS NORMASL JUST NOT PRINTING


Check the settings. If the printer is set for thermal DIRECT and you have thermal transfer labels, this will be the result. Thermal direct requires thermal sensitive labels. Thermal transfer requires a ribbon.

Hope this helps,

I have a Z140XiIII that used to have a ribbon and thermal transfer stock. we changed the stock to not require a ribbon, so we removed the ribbon and set the menu to Thermal direct. labels print OK but the...


If the printer is flashing "Ribbon in" then it sounds like the printer setting to Thermal Direct is being changed back to Thermal Trans. Verify this after sending a format. This is very common because the printer is bring over-ridden by the software and/or printer driver when you send a format.

Look for a setting in the software / driver for direct thermal and make the change there.

Hope that helps.

Zebra Z4 Error message


ribbon in means, you choose direct thermal print method which is printing without a ribbon and yet you print with thermal transfer print method.

No print with ribbon


Did you put a ribbon in your printer? The zebra does both direct thermal and thermal transfer, but you need a ribbon to get it to print AND have to change the settings to let the printer know that it needs to use the ribbon instead of direct thermal.

Try going through the LCD menu and if it say "Direct Thermal" change it to "Thermal Transfer", Direct Thermal made means, no ribbon required, but it sounds like you do have ribbon in the printer, if so, try my recommendation. If it asks for a password, it's '1234'.

How to say to the priter we don´t use ribbon


If you are printing in direct thermal mode (without a ribbon):
· Check your software settings and make sure that the print type is 'direct thermal'. If your software package requires the use of a Windows driver, also make sure that the driver is set for direct thermal printing.
If you are printing in thermal transfer mode (with a ribbon):
· Check your software settings and make sure that the print type is 'thermal transfer'. If your software package requires the use of a Windows driver, also make sure that the driver is set for thermal
transfer printing.

Check to see if there is any dirt on the ribbon spindle gears or on the ribbon motors. For the latter
you will need to remove the electronics cover. If there is dirt in either of these areas, try vacuuming around the motors and/or the spindles to remove as much of the dirt as possible.
