I work with Zebra printers daily and I have found several ways to enable a stuborn ribbon motor. The S300 is the hardest to turn on but unless the belt has broken or come off it can be done. The S400 and S600 are much easier, below are a couple step that work for me.
Enabling/Disabling the Ribbon motor
• Turn off the printer.
• Disabling the motor – Press the FEED, CANCEL and MODE buttons while turning the printer on. Continue to hold the buttons until the lower two lights go out.
• Enabling the motor – Open the printhead and retract the ribbon completely onto the supply spool. Leave the printhead open. Press the PAUSE, FEED and CANCEL buttons while turning the printer on. Continue to hold the buttons until the lower two lights go out. When the printhead light begins to blink, reinstall the ribbon and close the printhead.
The printer may or may not print out a ribbon sensor profile, this is normal. Cycle the power and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: Tally T2250 showing an error..
If you are using re-fill ribbon then the problem may arise , if you are using original then clean the encoder strip with isopropile if not solved change the encoder strip .

The ribbon I had installed (code 061627) which says it is the correct one is in fact not. the drive pin on the printer slips while feeding the ribbon.
I have fitted a (code 062471) and now it is printing fine again.
a google search reports both these codes as compatible but they are quite clearly, not.

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.
