The print head becomes very hot during printing. Allow it to cool before you replace the ribbon cassette.
Never turn the ribbon cassette’s feed knob in the opposite direction of the arrow marked on the cassette; otherwise the ribbon cassette may be damaged.
**Make sure to use the EPSON ERC-38 ribbon cassette for your printer.
1. Open the ribbon cassette cover by using the tabs on the sides of the cover.
2. You’re going to want to make sure you twist the knob on ink ribbon clockwise to tighten the ribbon. That way nothing twists inside the printer.
3. Insert the ribbon (place it in with the ribbon behind the print head, facing the paper roll side , and the knob facing upward. Push the ribbon cassette down until you hear a click.
Note: Make sure the ribbon is installed between the print head and the platen without wrinkles or creases.
4. Again turn the ribbon cassette’s knob 2 or 3 times in the direction of the arrow and close the ribbon cassette cover.
Be careful not to touch the print head with your fingers when turning the ribbon cassette knob because the print head is hot and you might be burned. When you replace the ribbon cassette, lift the left side of the ribbon cassette first; then lift the whole ribbon cassette.
