After changing the ribbon, i am unable to print labeles because of a "ribbon error" and i don't know how to fix it.


Remove the ribbon, ensure that it is not loose and refit - I have had this before - the ribbon has basically not slotted down properly when inserted.

My Canon QS310 electronic typewriter ribbon is always out-of-stock in our country. What other typewriter ribbons (brand/models) that are compatible with Canon QS310?


If you had posted what Country you are located in, I could have ran a search to locate someone local to you that has this product in stock. I am located in California. I could give you information on compatible ribbons which are available in my area, but they may not be available in yours and that would not solve your problem.

I would suggest that you stick with the ribbon that is made for your typewriter if at all possible? If you are unable to locate stock in your Country, try ordering the ribbons online instead.

The ribbons are available at Office Depot. They sell the product online and have your ribbon in stock. Here is a link to your ribbon on their website:

Here is a link to a website that sells both the generic and brand name ribbon for your typewriter:

I hope this helps? Good luck!

Please can you send me a picture of how to install the ribbon in to the Remington Standard No.12 typewriter. Or tell me how to thread the ribbon.


Hi, first of all there is no picture diagram for this and this method am giving you is what has been used to install ribbon on different typewriters.
  • Remove the existing ribbon. Note the path that the ribbon takes as it goes from one spool to the other.
  • Roll the ribbon entirely on to one of the two reels if your replacement ribbon didn't come with a take-up reel. If your new ribbon has a take-up reel, skip this step.
  • Attach the end of the new ribbon to the take-up reel if your new ribbon doesn't already have one. In most cases, there is a sharp arrow shaped piece on the reel. Use that arrow to penetrate the ribbon and make a few winds of ribbon around the take-up reel.
  • Slip the take-up reel on the take-up spindle on the right side of the typewriter. Align any tabs designed to turn the reel to move the ribbon during typing.
  • Feed the ribbon through the path you noted when removing the old ribbon and place the main ribbon on the spindle. Give the take-up reel a few turns to make sure the ribbon moves freely through the typewriter mechanism.

I have tried umpteen times to change the ribbon and have by now undone white + blue plastic roll ends, maybe they're now no longer in the original position, I've tried in every possible way and I can't get...


Download the manual for your machine and check the title "Changing the ribbon" under section 13 - Troubleshooting and routine maintenance and sub-section Routine maintenance.
Although the manual is also black & white, the images are clear and the colours are signalled.

Winding technique:
To wind a new ribbon, take the cartridge housing apart and remove the old ribbon and two cardboard cores. The new ribbon is fitted with the larger roll (the ink ribbon supply spool) at the rear side of the cartridge (as the housing is viewed when it is normally installed into the machine). The ribbon winds over the topside of the rear spool (the supply side) and feeds into the underside of the front spool (the take-up side). Make sure the ribbon is wound neatly, evenly and is tight. If the ink film has become detached or is too loose on the front spool it will not wind on and cause a machine error. If required, use a small amount of sticky tape to secure the ink film to the front cardboard spool and then neatly wind it on to the take-up spool a minimum of five turns, making sure the film does not overhang at the edges. Now reassemble the housing and refit into the machine.
If it’s still not fixed:
If problems persist after fitting a new ribbon, try replacing the entire ink ribbon unit (cartridge housing + a new ink ribbon) using a new, genuine Brother unit before requesting a service; this will be less expensive as the actual housing may have been damaged and is causing the problem and this unit is readily available as a consumable item through sales outlets. If the machine still has problems, book your machine in to be repaired with an authorised Brother Service Centre.
