Remove the ribbon and try to remove the crease. Check the printhead for obstructions. You may have to open up both halves of the ribbon cartridge to look for jams or obstructions.

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

I have z4mplus recently i changed print head , fonts are complete one blank line is same place for any priting


If the blank line is vertical (parallel to the print direction) then
Either the head is damaged at this point (dots missing) or you have something on the ribbon which prevents the head from doing the transfer.
Or the ribbon is faulty and you have to change the ribbon

Wrinkles in ribbon using Datamax H-4212 printer


Definitely. possible solution match the width of your label and ribbon. if your ribbon is wider for .5 inch it should be good.
1. check your spindle alignment, printhead alignment and rotate the green knob on the printhead while printing so that you'll see the difference.

Ribbon wrinkle


Its a bit of both. Too much pressure on the printhead can cause this as well as a poorly aligned ribbon. Adjust both then adjust the darkness the same as you would position or calibration

Z4MPlus Ribbon wrinkles causing lines diagonally across label.


Could be down to tension on the ribbon roller/spool. Check to see if you have pulled out the end part of the spool (black bit) that should ensure there is back tension on the ribbon.

Thermal Ribbon has a wrinkle


The thermal print head is damaged. You can try to clean it with a thermal printer head cleaner. That will only help if it is just clogged up with thermal print ink.

Ribbon wrinkles when printing barcodes


This is usually caused by temperature of the thermal print head. This is found in the printing preferences of the printer.
