Question about Datamax DMX I-4206 Printer
This particular printer model is setup as a Direct Thermal printer only with the Option of Thermal Transfer printing as well. I would need to know the specific printer part number to better answer your question. Direct Thermal only printers do NOT need a Thermal Ribbon to print on the labels.

If the unit is set up for either(with the thermal trasnfer option- ribbon unwind and rewind assembly) you can use either ribbon- with thermal transfer stock, or direct thermal- with direct stock.
You can tell the stock by rubbing something across the stock to see if it will turn black, that is direct thermal stock.
If using direct, go into the setup and select media type- direct thermal.
If using ribbon- use thermal trasnfer option. But remember to install ribbon before calibration as ithe printer will error on out-of -ribbon.
