Would the ribbon be the problem on the printer?

New label printer is not printing, could it be the ribbon?

    I guess the item we put in it is considered a heating element? Well it appears it was upside down on the spool. We use 1" 1 & 1/4 labels but it won't align up properly. Do we need a template or different labels? HELP!

If this is a 2844 label printer, no, This printer is a thermal printer and uses a heating element. There is no ribbon.

I have a brand new zebra tlp2844 I have set it up with a resin ribbon, the print quality is very poor and patchy why is this ?


There are a couple of possible solutions.
1/ Resin ribbons are meant to be used on synthetic labels onle ie vinyl or polyester. If you are trying to print on paper labels then you will get a rubbish print. you need to use either a wax ribbon or a wax resin ribbon.

2/ If you are printing onto a synthetic labels and the print is light, try increasing the "print darkness" some times called contrast or heat or printhead setting.. This can be fount in the printer set up in the labels software you are using or in the print drive under "Print Preference"

I am a Reseller and one of my client is having Citizen CLP-7202e. due to the faulty print head we have tried to change the print head and after changing a new print head, printer is not printing...


I have used this type of printer before. Long ago when it was called the C-ITOH. However, never had to change the print head before. I would imagine that if you did - all the adjustments would need changing. Bad Gap would skip labels and bad pressure would make them too light or too dark. If there are any vertical lines (even faint) the print head is damaged. Also, these things are very specific as to media vs ink roller. You cannot use a paper ink roller with mylar labels. Vise versa works but those rolls are more expensive. I am sure you have tested this already but you point pretty exclusively to the "new" print head with your testing. Sounds like you have answered your own question. I would do some continuity tests on the head to see if it carries any current at all. Good Luck!

In the barcode printer showing ribbon out. I change the print method from " THERMAL TRANSFER TO DIRECT TO DIRECT THERMAL " and saved. Again come the same problem RIBBON OUT. How I solve the problem....


You need to change the print method from thermal transfer to direct thermal. There are three places to do this:
- on the printer itself - in the printer driver (this will override the setting in the printer and be the default setting for any new labels crested) - in the print properties of a specific label (this will override the two settings previously listed) The last option works best if you are switching label stock or ribbon in and out for different labels.

Ribbon not printing correctly on new labels have a sato CL412E and we are using the same ink ribbons we always use (premium wax/resin ribbon TRX-55) and we just started using new labels from a new company...


The ribbon / label combination usually doesn't have anything to do with print position of the fields on the label. Is the quality/durability of the print that you are seeing on the new labels the same as before ? With a glossier stock print quality should actually be better. This will at least tell you that the ribbon is correct for the new label stock. Is the new label a different size than previous labels ? That could account for the fields not printing in the correct position if the printer is not calibrating correctly on the new size.

Not sure if this will help but may give some ideas...

HI,when I print , the printer do some label , after go in pause mode automatically message=" = continue = reprint" but after 1o label , the printer give a second error "out of ribbon" .Can you help me...


Hello

After many efforts I have found that in the new PX6i models, the "transfer ribbon mechanism" (the wheel that is responsible for making the ribbon roll) appears to be defective. What happens is that when rolling back in order to keep the ribbon stretched, instead of stopping at the fixed point, it continues to roll back a bit. After a few prints, this causes an "out of ribbon" error.
The solution: replace this part with a VALID part (a new one).
Good luck!

Wrinkles in ribbon using Datamax H-4212 printer


Definitely. possible solution match the width of your label and ribbon. if your ribbon is wider for .5 inch it should be good.
1. check your spindle alignment, printhead alignment and rotate the green knob on the printhead while printing so that you'll see the difference.

Display reads ready, but when print is press the labels run but nothing is printed on the labels.


Is your label "direct thermal"? or using a ribbon to print.

If using ribbon, high probability that you install the ribbon the other way around.

We have our printer set up to print barcode labels


Have you checked for minute folds in your ribbon? Once you get a fold in the ribbon, no matter how small, you may have to manually feed several feet of ribbon through to get rid of the ripple. We have had similar problems in the past with inexperienced operators installing new ribbons.

Possible print head failure


to test , press pause botton and turn on (press 5 sec.)
he print a "pause test".
check if print, if stop on ich gap and if come some lines across the print (if apear some lines, need new print head.) this step just pause wen print some labels, and then still print until turn off.
Turn off and turn on the printer to work normal.

To calibrate media, go on the setings to "sensor profile" and/or "run manual calibration, follow the steps. (dont forget to take the ribbon from the sensor.)
let the test run until finish.
