zebra logo
Possible Cause:
In thermal transfer mode:

1. Ribbon is not loaded

2. Ribbon is loaded incorrectly

3. The ribbon sensor is not detecting ribbon

4. Media is blocking the ribbon sensor

Solution:
1. Load ribbon correctly.

2. Calibrate the printer.

Possible Cause: In thermal transfer mode, the printer did not detect the ribbon even though it is loaded correctly.

Solution:
1. Print a sensor profile. The ribbon out threshold is likely to high, above the line that indicates where the ribbon is detected.

2. Calibrate the printer or load printer defaults.

Possible Cause: If you are using direct thermal media, the printer is waiting for ribbon to be loaded because it is incorrectly set for thermal transfer mode.

Solution: Set the printer for the Direct Thermal mode.
