2742 no longer stops printing when ribbon runs out

We ran a TLP 2742 for years now with no problem, now all of a sudden when the ribbon runs out, it will keep printing the job and just spitting out blank labels. What could have caused this? How can I fix it?

Hey,

If that does not work, try reinstalling the device drivers. Last resort, you can get a USB adapter cable from this guy or a new printer, he has both. It might be the cable.

Its probably set for direct thermal in the driver, you need to set it for thermal transfer in both printer defaults and printer preferences

No gap detected


This could be caused by a couple of issues:
  • Dirty sensor (use compressed air and blow out printer)
  • Wrong media (using labels with black bars obscuring the gap and making it non-readable by sensor)
  • Wrong label format for size of labels used (make sure label size matches the template size)

I wanted to know what type of ribbon does Eltron TLP 2742 take and what is product number and how much are they?


The quality depends on the type of support you are using
It can be wax / waxResin or pure resin
Usually:
- Paper = wax ribbon or Wax /resin ribbon
- Plastics = Resin ribbon
Take care I think that the ribbon should be on 1/2 inch cores

When using this now with create-a-label the only


This is a Create a Label issue, not a printer issue. I suggest that you post under that heading, or call their tech support for help. having said that, your 2742 is an EPL based printer, try installing another EPL printer in your application and see if that helps. Other EPL printers: Eltron Orion, 2442, 2543, etc.

IT PRINT A LABEL THEN SKIPS A LABEL THEN PRINTS A LABEL


You need to make sure the media and ribbon are installed correctly, and then make sure the printer is calibrated. Once you verify the media is correct, power off the printer and then back on. It should feed a few labels. Then press the button to feed again to make sure it feeds only one. If it does, then the printer is set. Now, when you go to print, if it still acts up, you need to check either the driver settings or the software settings. Label size could be set incorrectly.
