My labels do not print clearly, I have a zebra TLP2844


Check the Ribbon type and adjust the darkness levels accordingly, Wax uses less heat and Resin uses more. Another thing to check is if you are using Direct Thermal Labels as this could cause a clarity problem. Also cleaning the Print head with Isopropyl Alcohol each time you change the ribbon will keep the head in good condition.

Keep getting broken ribbon message on zebra P330i printer


Hello, assuming the supplies are Zebra and there is no discernible damage to the ribbon, it could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. if your printer is still under warranty you can ship back to Zebra (Illinois) to get it repaired. The zebra website has info on how to return printers for service. Hope this helps.

I have a zebra z6mplus the ribbon keeps breaking


You may have your contrast set too high. If it breaks as it feeds under the printhead (while printing) your contrast may be set too high.
You also could have a ribbon spindle issue. Are both ribbon spindles turning?

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.

Card cutting ribbon on Zebra P330i


On the front of the head. 4 screws are there.
Near the head where the ribbon contacts the card.
Loosen the top 2. Let the metal guard slide down a bit. Tighten the screws. Try a card.
Keep adjusting the guard until you tune it right.
