Quite simple.
- Remove the ribbon
- in the support tab of the driver select direct thermal.
- Send a test print to the printer.
It's done

SOURCE: Tec 572 printer gives "no ribbon" error with ribbon installed

You have to set the ribbon type to be "non-transmissive" for black transfer film.
To set the ribbon type, turn the printer off. Then press and hold the "feed" and "pause" buttons while turning on the power. The printer will now be in diagnostic mode - you can page through the menus until it says "ribbon type"
Pick the correct type and press the "pause" key to save the value. Then turn off the printer and turn it on again normally. The ribbon error goes away.

SOURCE: Ribbon spool does not turn, TEC B452

If you are working with the driver, change in stock page direct thermal to thermal transfer.

SOURCE: TEC B431-GS10 problem- Print-out in labels are only half

Various possibilities:
- The data cable on the head is not correctly inserted.
- the head is out of order.
- You are printing with a driver with a lower graphic resolution than the head resolution

SOURCE: NEED TO CALIBRATE MY SX4

Switch the printer on with the buttons feed and pause pressed.Press feed to display Sensor adjust. Press pause until transmissive is displayed. With the liner in the cells press on restart until a star is displayed next to the value (around 4.7V) press Pause the calibration is finished. In my opinion, you should check the size of your label and the distance between the labels (label gap) and also check that you have selected the correct detection (Transmissive for gap or relective for black mark)

SOURCE: Ribbon Error

According to the user's manual this message indicates a problem with the ribbon sensor. As a test, set the unit for thermal direct printing and attempt to print a barcode. You will not see the code if yoiu are expecting thermal transfer, but the paper/label should feed like it is printing. That will indicate that the printer is functioning. At this point, the sensor needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps,
Dan

There is usually a setting in your label software or printer driver that lets you choose between thermal transfer printing or direct thermal printing. Make sure your setting is on direct thermal.
