Ribbon rewind does not operate, labels print but ribbon comes out the front of printer with the label?


Have you selected thermal transfer in the driver?
This is the normal cause for ribbon not rewinding.

When i try print the label..no output at the label..how to test whether the ink is function or not


I'm including this link to the users manual:

http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html

But here is the basic troubleshooting info for that issue

No print on the label.The media may not be direct thermal media when printing without ribbon (i.e. thermal
transfer). See the test procedure

Determining Thermal Media Types on page 29.
• For thermal transfer printers, the media may not be outside wound or approved for use in
the G-Series printer. See the following ribbon test procedures: Ribbon Test with Adhesive
on page 32

and Ribbon Scratch Test on page 33.
• Is the media loaded correctly? Follow the instructions for

Loading Roll Media on page 11
in the Getting Started section. For printing using transfer ribbon, see

Loading Transfer Ribbon
on page 14.

I want to change the printer ribbon on Zebra s600 203 dpi, is there a way it will rewind existing ribbon off?


Thermal printers don't use ribbons or ink. They transfer images/text with heat on to special thermal paper.

The ribbon keeps being fed through along with the labels..


Go to the settings in your driver and select thermal transfer instead of direct thermal. This will activate the rewind motor

I have a few Datamax-I-4206 printers and some of them have the Thermal Transfer ribbons and some do not....Do I need to have Thermal Transfers or cant I just print to them without it?


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.

You get a ribbon fault when the ribbon is out, or sometimes when your printer isn't rewinding the spent ribbon well.

I find that if I pop open the printer and manually advance the ribbon a few times, it will work corrrectly.

I have been told that this could be an issue with the clutch on the rewind spool as well.

Printer ribbon has a wrinkle and it transfers to the label in the form of a blank line accross the ribbon.
