Have a olivetti 1000S typewriter, put in a new cartridge but when I type no printing appears on paper, any ideas


Put a multi part form in it, if it prints on the copies then you have a ribbon issue. If so be sure the ribbon is installed properly and that it isn't twisted (the dull side should face the paper) Try it without the Lift off they sometimes steal the impression.

My typewriter prints the bottom half of the letter. Do I need a new wheel or a defective ribbon. This started when I changed the ribbon.


Most likely the ribbon isn't in right. Go to NADIST.COM click on current models you will find a manual there.

For ZM400 and S4M, Has anyone had any luck with printing a white ribbon and a black or dark label without covering up the ribbon sensor with electrical tape? Isn't there a setting that can be...


You can try this: on the S4M, you can press the Menu key to go into setup mode. Under password level 3 parameters,there is a setting for ribbon which by default is set to Yes thermal trans. If you set it to No for direct thermal mode, this will in effect turn off the ribbon sensor. The printer won't stop now if it runs out of ribbon but usually you are there when printing to see that the ribbon is running out.

On other Zebras, you can turn down the sensitivity of the RIBBON LED sensor but the S4M doesn't have that setting.

See if that helps.

When i try print the label..no output at the label..how to test whether the ink is function or not


I'm including this link to the users manual:

http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html

But here is the basic troubleshooting info for that issue

No print on the label.The media may not be direct thermal media when printing without ribbon (i.e. thermal
transfer). See the test procedure

Determining Thermal Media Types on page 29.
• For thermal transfer printers, the media may not be outside wound or approved for use in
the G-Series printer. See the following ribbon test procedures: Ribbon Test with Adhesive
on page 32

and Ribbon Scratch Test on page 33.
• Is the media loaded correctly? Follow the instructions for

Loading Roll Media on page 11
in the Getting Started section. For printing using transfer ribbon, see

Loading Transfer Ribbon
on page 14.

The Zebra 11oXill printer does not stop when the ribbon is out


Yes. You need to be sure the upper Media Guide plate is installed and that you have run the Media Sensor setup that is offered through the menu. Once the setup has been run correctly, the printer will be able to sense the ribbon is miising and stop the print job. If not setup, it will do as you have described.

Zebra ZM600 - ribbon in error


Make sure the ribbon sensor is in the proper position and that there is nothing covering it, like a piece of label that came off and got stuck to the sensor. Here is a picture of where the sensor is located. Did you make sure you put the ribbon sensor plate back in? If not you will get this message. Make sure the Print Method is correctly set! Although I exclusively use Thermal-Transfer (ribbon is loaded along with label stock) my 140xIII had Print Method set to Direct-Thermal and printed labels just fine. The only problem I could see was that the Ribbon In warning would not go away.
After changing the Print Method the warning went away and printing continues as before

My printer display keep showing " Warning, Ribbon in", cannot print multiple label at a time


i have the same problem , but my printer is ZEBRA S4M ZPL

my solution is:

in your barcode software: change printer settings: 1 and 2

1 . in media setting : change media type --> Thermal transfer
2. in documents options , configuration --> use printer settings
