  1. Is the daisy wheel locked in the forward position?
    1. Pull the black lever back, away from the platen.
    2. Lift out the daisy wheel and inspect it for damage; replace the daisy wheel if it is damaged.
    3. Re-insert the daisy wheel and push the black lever towards the platen until it locks in place.
  2. Is the ribbon moving?
    1. Lift the ribbon cartridge out of the typewriter
    2. Inspect the ribbon for damage
    3. If the ribbon is silver, it is exhausted and must be replaced
    4. If the hammer has been striking in one place, there will be a clear area near the center of the ribbon.
    5. Turn the colored knob on the left side of the ribbon cartridge counter-clockwise to advance the ribbon a small amount. Replace the ribbon if it will not advance.
    6. Re-insert the ribbon
  3. Turn on the typewriter, insert a piece of paper into the typewriter and type a few letters
    1. Did the hammer move forward?
    2. If the hammer moved, did the ribbon advance with each keystroke?
If the hammer did not move or the ribbon did not advance, the typewriter will require service. If the typewriter still does not make an impression on the paper, your typewriter will require service.

I am trying to replace the dvd transport tray drive belt on a Denon 2900 dvd player. To access the pulleys I need to remove transport mechanism and don't know how to disconnect ribbon cables.


Ribbon electrical connectors? Usually there is a lock right where the ribbon goes in. Lift the lock all around, and the ribbon is free. Reset the lock when the ribbon is replaced, straight and true.

Replaced ribbon but now the ribbon doesn't advance. Could it be ribbon itself is defective or could I have replaced it wrong? Ribbon is wrong replacement?


Try removing the ribbon, advancing it a foot or so by hand. Install it, mark the feed wheel type and see if it is turning.

How do I replace the ribbon in an IMB typewriter


press down the ribbon rewind lever on the left side of keyboard until all of ribbon is wound around left spool. Remove used ribbon spool and replace with new one. Guide the end of the new ribbon through the guides to the right take up spool - looks like a bow tie. Slip the metal end of ribbon in slot and you're ready to type.

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon


PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

How do I replace the ribbon on an Underwood typewriter?


Really? An Underwood typewriter?
First, do you have a replacement ribbon that is not dried out? Does the ribbon come on one spool or two?
If the typewriter already has a ribbon installed, it is a simple matter of noting the path the current ribbon follows, and which way the ribbon winds onto the spools. Then install the new ribbon following exactly the same threading path. If there is not already a ribbon installed, then it is a little more complicated, and it will depend on your spatial relationship visualization skills.

1. Type a few letters on the typewriter, and take note of which way the spools turn.
2. Mount the two new spools containing the new ribbon so that the full spool will supply (unwind), and the empty spool will take-up (wind) the ribbon.
3. Thread the ribbon through all of the guides in the threading path - there are probably about 6-8 guides that the ribbon has to go through. The most important guides are the ones that carry the ribbon in front of the typeface elements as they strike the paper. But equally important are the guides that monitor the tension of the ribbon - they will cause the spool advance mechanism to reverse the ribbon take-up direction when the ribbon reaches the end of travel.
