That probably means that your Thermal ribbon is not correctly fixed on the spindle or not in the right inking. Normally on zebra printers the inking must be outside.
Check on your user's manual

Intermec PX4i label printer. Paper/Ribbon loaded correctly, but ribbon is 'rippled' meaning barcode label being printed has white lines across it. Any ideas?


Ribbon Wrinkle as it called can be caused due to the main feed rollers (that touch the ribbon or the label) being slightly worn. Even if you have a sligh gradient on the roller(s) it will pull ever so slightly to one side. If you need the parts then please do not hesitate to contavct me. Jack Woodworth - Codeo UK, 01179064587

Can't get the Zebra S4m printer to align? How should I trouble shoot this? Sonya


I am assuming you mean misalignment of lable top or start of print moving on label.

check sensor for lable debris.

if OK then perform media calibration:

Enter menu and scroll to ADVANCED

press enter and use password 9999

scroll to MEDIA and RIBBON CALIBRATE

Remove a few labels and remove ribbon

Press right arrow to continue display CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT.

When complete reload ribbon and labels press right arrow printer will feed approx 39"

printer should now print OK.

Anytime she goes to print a badge the ribbon breaks. It's the correct ribon. She's put in a new ribon and the same thing happens.


When the ribbon keeps breaking on fargo DTC300 or any similar models (the ones that share similar mechanics) three steps are to be taken.


1- Verify, clean, calibrate or replace the ribbon sensor (maybe you'll see an error like "Panel Searching" that means " the ribbon sensor can't read the ribbon panels normally).

2- Clean the "card path" (the feed and platen rollers) for dust dirt and debris using the manufacturer's cleaning kit (or a clean
lint-free cloth with isopropyl alcohol) and the "clean printer" option.

3- Clean the inside and outside of the printer (pay attention to the printhead) with dust-off, lint-free cloth, isipropyl alcohol and enjoy.

Or, for more advanced ts take it to a certified tech!

Zebra Z4 Error message


ribbon in means, you choose direct thermal print method which is printing without a ribbon and yet you print with thermal transfer print method.

just check on lcd panel , change the print method to thermal transfer. and make sure the setting on your driver is thermal transfer too, or else it will keep reverting back to direct thermal

Brady 300 mvp displays "Ribbon in" warning. Whats does this mean?


I've got the same issue. This means the brady machine is configured for direct thermal transfer (no labels in the machine). Press setup, use the - and + buttons to scroll to direct transfer. Again, press select and again use the plus or minus button to select thermal transfer (labels in the machine).
I must say that the setup menu is tricky. If a password is needed, that's another story. Not impossible, but you have to know how to use the label maker, which I don't . I'm unable to remove the flashing errror message.

110xi111plus error code: warning ribbon in? what does that mean?


that ribbon occures when you are set for thermal direct printing in the driver or printer and you should be set for thermal transfer in the driver in printing defaults off of the advanced tab and the printer needs to be set for thermal transfer in print method in the setup menu. thermal transfer is printing with black ink ribbon and paper and thermal direct is just chemicaly treated paper.

9855 ribbon take up reel not working


When you're sending data to the printer you're sending a command that is telling the printer you're NOT using a ribbon. When the printer receives the data it's shutting off the ribbon. Check your software.
You should be set for THERMAL TRANSFER.(RIBBON)
THERMAL DIRECT Means NO RIBBON

Zebra ZM600 - ribbon in error


Make sure the ribbon sensor is in the proper position and that there is nothing covering it, like a piece of label that came off and got stuck to the sensor. Here is a picture of where the sensor is located. Did you make sure you put the ribbon sensor plate back in? If not you will get this message. Make sure the Print Method is correctly set! Although I exclusively use Thermal-Transfer (ribbon is loaded along with label stock) my 140xIII had Print Method set to Direct-Thermal and printed labels just fine. The only problem I could see was that the Ribbon In warning would not go away.
After changing the Print Method the warning went away and printing continues as before

"warning Ribbon In" error message


Had the same problem with a ZM400. As stated in the User manual (can be downloaded http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html?FRRBarcodePrinters=6882), warning "Ribbon in" is usually caused by the wrong printing method (thermal direct instead of thermal transfer [which should be selected for ribbbons]). My error disappeared after choosing "thermal transfer" directly on the printer. For network printers this needs to be set by an admin in the network settings for the the printer to solve the problem permanently.
