Datacard CP40 Plus printer with an error. Put a new ribbon in it and it does give us a error message: Error: PR-01739 Ribbon Error Please Help!


Sounds like you are using an incompatible ribbon. Please post the configuration for the printer which is on the left side under the cover (white sticker) and your ribbon part number. If you are sure both are correct you may have a defective print ribbon or your printer will need service.

I am not able to pring out labels , it sayse "error condition ribbon out and then Printer Idle V60.13.0.13Z The power light is green and solid the error light is blinking the check ribbon light is on solid...


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 !

Zebra Z4 Error message


ribbon in means, you choose direct thermal print method which is printing without a ribbon and yet you print with thermal transfer print method.

just check on lcd panel , change the print method to thermal transfer. and make sure the setting on your driver is thermal transfer too, or else it will keep reverting back to direct thermal

My printer displays ribbon error. but there is ribbon inside


you can change which ribbon type is installed in the printing preferences of the printer driver.
make sure you have the right ribbon type selected.
CYMTKO vs. CYMTO, etc.

There is also a button that will auto detect the ribbon right underneath the pulldown menu.

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.

Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken


When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

"warning Ribbon In" error message


Had the same problem with a ZM400. As stated in the User manual (can be downloaded http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html?FRRBarcodePrinters=6882), warning "Ribbon in" is usually caused by the wrong printing method (thermal direct instead of thermal transfer [which should be selected for ribbbons]). My error disappeared after choosing "thermal transfer" directly on the printer. For network printers this needs to be set by an admin in the network settings for the the printer to solve the problem permanently.
