Locate your printer driver under devices and printers Right click on it and select "Printing Preferences"

Choose the "Advanced Setup" tab

Change media type to "Direct Thermal"

Be sure that "use printer settings" is NOT selected at the top left

Click OK and you should be good.

Note that any labels created prior to this change will need to be changed inside each label under the label setup.

When I try printing, the label sheet comes out without being printed then stops and the "condition/error" lights blink.


First you need to check the blink rate:
If fast this denotes a ribbon error - check ribbon is installed correctly.
If slow this denotes a label sense error - check the sensors are clean and are correctly aligned.

1.Double check that the ribbon and the labels are routed correctly. 2.Make sure the media guide is holding the labels against the inside of the printer and not moving to the right away from the media sensor. If the labels are sliding to the right as they come out, increase the left side head pressure on top with a flat blade screw driver. Download the user manual at zebra.com .Check the media type and sensor type, and set for thermal transfer if using a ribbon.

Error condition head open


First test this: remove the ribbon close head if the error goes away it is not your sensor. Most of the time someone has loaded the ribbon on a little to hard and broke the plastic tab that insure it loads correctly. With the tab gone you may get lucky and load it right sometimes and other times not this is why some ribbons work and some do not.

The printer thinks it is out of ribbon. If the condition exists and there is still ribbon in the printer, then try pressing the CALIBRATE key to have the printer readjust for the label / ribbon. If that does not help then press the SETUP key, press PREVIOUS until you see a setting called RIBBON LED. Make sure there is a value there - should be somewhere around 30-40. If it is above 100, then lower the setting to 30. Then press SETUP again and press SAVE for a permanent save.

Hope that helps !

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.

RIBBON ERRORS


Ribbon error message is displayed when the rotation of the ribbon spindle is not performed or not correctly detected. This can be due to various factors.
- The ribbon roll is not correctly fitted to the spindle.
- The sensors detecting the rotation are out of order or completetly filled with dust or grease.
In this case clean the sensors.
Another reason may be due to Direct thermal printing with a ribbon mounted.
