Replace Ribbon...

I have a DS4SX. Usually around 25% left of ribbon I get the message replace ribbon (color). Now it's occurring at 50% of ribbon left. I just have to advance it a bit n the cassette but what a pain. Any ideas why this happens? Thanks

Machine thinks Ribbon is Empty

Anyone else have this issue?

Brand new ribbon and chip. Machine thinks the cartridge is empty and wants it replaced. I advance the ribbon forward a few turns and it fixes the issue.

But why does this happen when it's a NEW ribbon no matter what slot it's in? Doesn't matter what color.

Thanks!

How to install firmware?

I can't remember how to do this...

Would it be too much for SUMMA Support to put a Text File with the Firmware Download Zip file so I don't have to ask this question?

Thanks!

Layering Colors?

I can't seem to find the color swatches that Summa provides with the printer. This is the swatch catalog where if you mixed the Summa colors to get new colors. Is there a PDF for this? I didn't seem to find it on Summa site. Trying to print a darker intense red. Not burgundy. Can't seem to hit it wi...

Re: Flat / matte vinyls

Laminate with a flat lam to get the effect. Works great.

Re: DAMN!! Need to replace DC4 Print Head

I replaced the head last night. It was a chore with fat hands. Hopefully, next time is way down the road and learned a few things to where it won't take as long as it did.

No core charge BTW.
