Try going through the LCD menu and if it say "Direct Thermal" change it to "Thermal Transfer", Direct Thermal made means, no ribbon required, but it sounds like you do have ribbon in the printer, if so, try my recommendation. If it asks for a password, it's '1234'.

When you open the print head to change labels, the ribbon tends to slide to the right (up the printhead) so...when you close, the ribbon is no longer over the sensor....thus the error message.
Just try sliding the ribbon to the left (down the print head) as you close

I have a fargo HPD 5000 and I am getting the error 91 stating the ribbon is out..i have changed and its still showing the same error. am I doing something wrong?


Hi Camille - that is indeed the error message for "ribbon out". This has a few possible causes:

1. Make sure you have the right ribbon for the printer. The standard color (YMCK) ribbon is #084051; if dual-sided, the standard YMCKK ribbon #084052; if monochrome/black print only, that is ribbon #084060.

2. Make sure the ribbon is loaded correctly. The spools are color-coded, so make sure the orange on the ribbon spool is in placed with the orange on the carrier - ditto for the blue.

3. Make sure you've changed the "ribbon", not the "film". The ribbon has orange and blue spools; the film has yellow & green spools.

4. Make sure the ribbon is loaded properly on the carrier - it goes the "long way" around the carrier, across the silver/metal rollers.

5. Try another new ribbon - they're RFID tagged, and occasionally an RFID tag is bad, missing, or corrupted.

6. Verify you have the latest printer firmware, to ensure all ribbon manufacturing site-codes (embedded in the RFID tag) are recognized as valid for your printer.

If you have continued problems, we can help with further support, including potential repairs. Good luck!

Ribbon Error


According to the user's manual this message indicates a problem with the ribbon sensor. As a test, set the unit for thermal direct printing and attempt to print a barcode. You will not see the code if yoiu are expecting thermal transfer, but the paper/label should feed like it is printing. That will indicate that the printer is functioning. At this point, the sensor needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Model 22304030 getting f7 error message


The control panel has a flat ribbon cable that plugs into the relay module. The ribbon is actually two ribbons pressed together. The plastic insulation has a defect, and the leads between the two ribbons cross. You can seperate them easily by lifting them apart. Place a piece of paper between them to act as an insulator. This should solve your problem. Good luck!!!

Keep getting broken ribbon message on zebra P330i printer


Hello, assuming the supplies are Zebra and there is no discernible damage to the ribbon, it could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. if your printer is still under warranty you can ship back to Zebra (Illinois) to get it repaired. The zebra website has info on how to return printers for service. Hope this helps.

Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken


When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

Try one of the following:
1. Turn the printer off, then back on
2. Reverse the ribbon; perhaps it is upside down

Once the printer is powered on and the ribbon is in correctly, the printer should work.
