Replacing the Ink and Labels of your Barcode Printer

Before you begin, make sure you have the following items:

                                             
                    PRINTER                               EMPTY RIBBON CORE *                   NEW INK RIBBON
 
 

NOTE: You can use the existing ribbon core already in your printer as your empty ribbon core. If you don’t have an empty ribbon core, use the ribbon core closest to you (when facing the front of your barcode printer) and unroll it. It will have negatives of your barcodes on it. Throw away the unraveled ribbon and keep the empty ribbon core. If you lost or thrown away the empty ribbon core, please click here to purchase a new one.

  • Prepare the new ribbon by removing its wrapping and pulling its adhesive strip free. 

  • Pull the release levers towards you and lift the cover. 

  • Thread the ribbon through the hole beneath the supply hub.

  • First slide the ribbon roll onto the right hand supply hub.

  • Push the right hub in and swing the left side of the ribbon roll onto the left side ribbon hub.

  • Rotate the ribbon roll on the left spindle till it locks the ribbon roll’s core notches onto the hub.



  • Place an empty ribbon core on printer’s take-up spindles. Rotate the ribbon core until the notches align and lock into the left side of the take-up hub.


  • Pull the ribbon around from below the ribbon frame. Attach it with the adhesive strip to the empty ribbon core on the supply hub. Center the ribbon on the empty ribbon core.

     


  • Rotate the thumb wheel on the left side of the ribbon frame by the supply hub until the ribbon is pulled tight across the empty core.
