How to install thermal transfer ribbon

Steps:

  1. Slide either tab located on each side of the printer forward, then lift the media compartment cover open
  2. For ribbons with a 1” (25.4mm) paper core without notches, insert a green ribbon spindle into the paper core. Insert the side with the green key into the side of the core. The ribbon should turn counterclockwise when pulling out the ribbon that’s facing the green key side. Repeat for a 1” (25.4mm) ribbon rewind paper core without notches.
    Note: Paper cores with notches do not need the green ribbon spindle.

  3. To load a ribbon rewind paper core with notches into the top location, first insert one side into the spring-loaded right ribbon rewind hub. If you are using a green ribbon spindle inserted into a ribbon rewind paper core without notches, insert the solid black side into the spring-loaded right ribbon rewind hub. Next, slide the ribbon rewind paper core slightly to the right and drop the other side into the hole on the left ribbon rewind hub. Rotate to lock the ribbon rewind paper core into the left ribbon rewind hub.
    Note: The green ribbon spindles are required for loading the ink ribbon into the printer. Do not throw them away.

  4. Load the ribbon into the bottom location by first inserting the solid black side inside the paper core into the spring-loaded right ribbon hub. Slide the ribbon slightly to the right and insert the side with the green key into the hole on the left ribbon hub. Rotate to lock the ribbon spindle inside the ribbon into the left ribbon hub.
  5. Pull the ribbon up over the printhead and use tape to adhere the ribbon leader to the ribbon rewind paper core. Using the green ribbon rewind gear, rotate the gear away from you until the ribbon leader is entirely wound on the ribbon rewind paper core and the ink portion of the ribbon is positioned over the printhead.
    Note: Do not dispose of the ribbon rewind paper core after using up the ribbon. The used ribbon must be removed from the ribbon rewind paper core and be properly disposed of. The ribbon rewind paper core is needed when loading a new ribbon.
  6. Press down on both sides of roll compartment cover to close gently

Troubleshooting media calibration issues

If you run into a problem where the printer is not printing properly, we recommend performing an automatic calibration printer function. You may need to perform an automatic calibration when changing between different media types and sizes.

Note: You will need to perform the automatic calibration with the thermal transfer ink ribbon and media you want to use loaded into the printer.

Steps:

  1. Press the “Menu” button
  2. Use the arrow keys to move and highlight “Sensor” and press the button under the checkmark
  3. Use the arrow keys to move and highlight “Auto Calibration” and press the button under the checkmark
  4. Use the arrow keys to highlight “Preprint” and press the button under the checkmark
  5. Use the arrow keys to select “Gap” and press the button under the checkmark
  6. The printer will begin the calibration process. Do not interrupt the printer during this time. Once complete, the printer will be calibrated to the media.
    Note: It is expected that a few labels will be wasted during the automatic calibration process.
