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.

Screen reading wrong ribbon - had the same ribbon in it since the last printing.


My DTC300 printer has the same problem.

The ribbon supply roller is driven by a small motor connected via an O-ring belt. The printer rolls the ribbon back and forth to locate the start of each color panel on the ribbon during printing and ribbon detection. Without the O-ring, the ribbon only moves toward the take-up spool, eventually going slack so that the color detector only sees one color - hence the "wrong ribbon" message. In my printer, the slack ribbon also gets chewed up in the print head.

You can order a whole belt kit (~ $20 + shipping) or you can locate a generic O-ring belt (1.8mm x 26mm).

RIBBON BREAKE


Several things can cause a ribbon to break. Let's start with the simplest - cleaning. Use your cleaning kit to clean the rollers and print head. If the rollers are dirty, cards can slip and cause ribbons to break. Another is the TOF setting. If the print image is too close to the front edge, the ribbon will break.

Check these 2 things and see if this helps!
