Your take up spool isn't working properly, bad motor or belt.

Had same problem.
You should use empty ribbon roll on take up spool with Intermec.
Otherwise it will not wind up enough ribbon and loose ribbon increase each time you print.
Attaching ribbon to empty ribbon roll on take up spool solved this problem

SOURCE: ribbon feeds out with label on the intermec

Check to make sure that the printer is set to Thermal Transfer and not Direct Thermal. If the printer is in Direct Thermal, the ribbon take-up does not turn.
If the printer is set to Thermal Transfer then I would suspect a bad Power Supply since the ribbon take-up is driven by the power supply and not off the main board.

Intermec PX4i label printer. Paper/Ribbon loaded correctly, but ribbon is 'rippled' meaning barcode label being printed has white lines across it. Any ideas?


Ribbon Wrinkle as it called can be caused due to the main feed rollers (that touch the ribbon or the label) being slightly worn. Even if you have a sligh gradient on the roller(s) it will pull ever so slightly to one side. If you need the parts then please do not hesitate to contavct me. Jack Woodworth - Codeo UK, 01179064587

Black ribbon is not back feeding same amount/speed as label, leaving black smudge at beginning of label


This is due to the quality of the ribbon.
When the paper moves back, since the head is not raised, the paper rubs on the ribbon en is the cause of the black smudge. Use correct Ribbon

Zebra 105sl laebls always come out blank


Power on while holding the pause button for 5 seconds. This should print black bar across the width of the label. If this prints, then check the darkness parameter in your label format or driver. Also check to make sure your ribbon is feeding coated side out. There is a shiny side and a dull side to a ribbon. The dull side should be against the media. If it is leaving an image on the ribbon and nothing on the label the ribbon is either loaded incorrectly or not a zebra ribbon.

Hi can you help ? My zebra TLP 2824 printer keeps printing out of alignment. I reset the printer by holding the feed button while powering on but instead of printing dump info the label moves for a while...


If you are using a ribbon remove it and perform a calibration, hold down feed key for 2 seconds as you power on, release key and wait for it to complete its calibration, when it has stopped shifting labels (wait for 10 secs to be sure) HIT THE FEED KEY to exit dump mode. If it has successfully calibrated it will feed a label each time you hit feed key. Re-install ribbon, make sure ribbon is pushed formly onto drive sprockets and then re-run the calibration..

If this does not fix problem. download firmware to latest version. This will automatically reset printer to factory default condition.

Hi, my printer is printing blanks. Windows XP, Zebra ribbon I replaced the ribbon and still no luck. I tried setting the darkness to maximum, but that didn't work either. I tried the "dump"...


The zebra ribbon has ink on one side and the other side has a backcoating which protects the printhead. simple way to check is to peel off a label and momentarily stick to ribbon and remove. This will show you which side is inked.

If ribbon is installed correctly then reset the printer and re-calibrate it. 1. install labels and ribbon 2. power on printer. If you have a solid green light on then 3 turn printer off. 4 hold down feed key 5 power printer on and after 2 seconds release feed key. printer will perform a calibration routine and eventually print out status page. IMPORTANT 6 Hit Feed Key once more. Printer will display Out Of Dump message. Your printer has now been sucessfully calibrated.

Z4MPlus Ribbon wrinkles causing lines diagonally across label.


Could be down to tension on the ribbon roller/spool. Check to see if you have pulled out the end part of the spool (black bit) that should ensure there is back tension on the ribbon.

Zebra 140Xill problem


Whenever you open the printhead, the Pause led will light.

If you hit the Pause button, the printer should go back on-line and resume printing (if you didn't turn it off).

If that doesn't work, try the calibration button (labels will feed out), then the Pause button, then the Feed button.

If you don't want to toss too many labels when you calibrate, the "maximum label length" (or some name like that) can be adjusted through the front panel.
