Loading the Ribbon

You do not have to turn printer power off when working near an open printhead, but Zebra recommends it as a precaution. If you turn off the power, you will lose all temporary settings, such as label formats, and you must reload them before you resume printing.
To protect the printhead from wear, use ribbon that is wider than the media.
Ribbon must be coated on the outside for use in a standard printer. For more information, see Que tipo de fita posso usar?.
  1. Raise the media door.
