When should I change my IBM 5152 Printer ribbon
Your printer ribbon needs to be changed when, even after cleaning the print heads and refilling the cartridges, the print quality is very light till there is no print.
How can I replace a printer ribbon
Determine the correct ribbon type for your printer and remove the cover of your printer to reveal the print heads. Remove the ink ribbon from the pins and loops and once this is done remove the spool from the printer. Replace it with a new ink ribbon. Now you can restart the printer. If the ribbon has missed some of the loops while reattaching, it will not function properly.
What are the different types of printer ribbons
There are two types of printer ribbons - black and colored. The black ribbon is used for printing monochromatic documents and comes with a black resin. The colored ribbon is composed of cyan, magenta, yellow and black panels and is used for printing colored images.
How do I check the compatibility of my new ribbon with the printer
A list of compatible ribbons is usually stamped on the printer's box. You need to check that before buying the ribbon.
