Loading Print Ribbon

  1. Open your printer’s cover by pulling both green cover release tabs straight towards you. The cover support will engage to hold the cover open. Open the ribbon access cover by lifting the black panel
  2. If you’re using a new ribbon, remove the outer plastic bag from the ribbon, and unstick the white ribbon “leader” or “tail” from the roll
  3. With the ribbon leader hanging from behind/under the roll, insert the ribbon onto a ribbon spool so the square cog is on the left side, then insert the spool left side first onto the ribbon supply hub (rear hub) and snap it into place
  4. Insert the empty cardboard core onto the other ribbon spool, and insert the spool onto the ribbon take-up spool (front hub)
  5. Pull the ribbon leader down, and then up and over the print head. Stick the ribbon to the core with tape or the leader adhesive
  6. Rewind the ribbon take-up spool by rotating the winding gear to the left of your ribbon hub
  7. Close the ribbon access cover, disengage the cover support by pulling the button towards the front of the printer, and gently close the top cover

Loading Print Supply
