mylar ribbon dislocated
Can't figure how/where ribbon attaches to inner parts of printer. can attach to fixed nipple but ribbon appears too long; no tension, will not stay attached.
Assuming it is still threaded through the sensor in the head assembly, simply stretch it straight and the ends will line up with where it hooks up to the frame.
It is not threaded, and appears stained and is slightly creased
You can clean it with a paper towel and window cleaner. You will need to thread it thru the sensor. It is in the middle of the cartridge assy. Look for a black plastic U shape inside.
