Perhaps your darkness is set too low, or your labels are not coated to accept thermal transfer printing. Let me know if this helps!

My journal tape is not printing.


Another common print problem with laser printers is light print or uneven print density across the page. This is caused by low toner. Take out the cartridge and gently rock it side to side to redistribute the toner. Then simply put it back in the printer, and you're good to go.
This can happen when you install the tape cassette leaving the ink ribbon loose, or by pulling the printed label out by hand. If the ink ribbon has not separated from the cassette, you can fix this by winding the toothed wheel and reeling the ink ribbon.

If all else fails, might need an update.https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3162655/windows-journal-application-for-windows

I have a brand new zebra tlp2844 I have set it up with a resin ribbon, the print quality is very poor and patchy why is this ?


There are a couple of possible solutions.
1/ Resin ribbons are meant to be used on synthetic labels onle ie vinyl or polyester. If you are trying to print on paper labels then you will get a rubbish print. you need to use either a wax ribbon or a wax resin ribbon.

2/ If you are printing onto a synthetic labels and the print is light, try increasing the "print darkness" some times called contrast or heat or printhead setting.. This can be fount in the printer set up in the labels software you are using or in the print drive under "Print Preference"

Have an Everest III disc printer that is not printing good labels. Seems the blue prints OK but the are streaks on the disc where the red and yellow should be printing. Changing the ribbons didn't


First thing is to completely CLEAN the printer. All rollers and any point that contacts the ribbons or transfer material.

Ribbon is melting


Hi

You have the heat setting in the driver set too high.

Lower the heat setting to the lowest possible setting, the print quality will probably be poor then gradually increase it by 1 until print quality is good.

How do i replace ink cartridge


Remove the paper scroll from the printer. Turn off the power and make sure the print wheel has stopped moving.

Slide the printer cover toward the back of the machine to remove it. Lift out the old ribbon and replace it with the new one by facing the black side of the ribbon up. Secure one of the reels to its reel shaft, thread the ribbon around the outside of the metal guides, and secure the other reel to the opposite reel shaft.

Tighten any slack ribbon by turning one of the reels

Replace the print cover and reset the paper scroll.

Take up reel not working on Monarch 9825 printer


Go into the printer's menu and turn on the ribbon, or if you are using a 3rd party software, go into the software settings to tell the printer that it has a ribbon.

If you go through the printer, use this document. Go to chapter 4, page 4.

I channged the ribbon and the printer will not print tried several thing but it look like everything goes ok but there is nothing printed on the labels


Check that ribbon is installed correctly. Zebra ribbon only has ink on one side. ink side must be facing label. Use a label to check which side ink is on stick label onto ribbon and peel off.

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
