Did you come up with a system to re-load. Inquiring minds want to know...

Muts,

What do you have there. Are those ribbons that do not work for you? I have been toss-in those chips out. I have only a Magenta and a yellow DC4 chip currently. I bought some ribbons on ebay that someone was closing out. My DC1 can use any dc1,2,3,4 ribbon... No chip!

whoa! I didn't know that...I kinda wish they went a different way instead if the chip...

That is a box of spent ribbons & chips I was was saving to goof around with but after
a little digging about I found there is no real solution..other then buying from summa "stickum" bought the whole box...

Never heard back from him.

Hello,
Sorry it took so long, with work and all the tryouts, finally i got it to work,some what.
if you have any cores or chips of any dc3 or dc4 that are empty, i will buy them from you dont throw them away, you might want to try them out with a third party ribbon wich has worked for me. yes i will buy them and pay for shipping, one day you will want to try them out yourself,also printheads are very inexpensive, i know who makes them.
one day at a time,but surely moving foward.....
thanks

here i am again, i tried several ribbon companies, and havent found the right one yet..
the chip is not the problem, the slitting of ribbons,is not a problem, the rewinding is not the problem, the problem im having is not finding a ribbon close enough to summa's. i would hate to send everyone to every manufacturer i have tried just for one specific color, i need help findind the makers of the ribbons. also do not , i mean do not!!!!upgrade your firmware summa is making harder to if you do so. keep your latest firmware.
if any one out their know what brand has worked for them and would like to share the info, i will be glad to slitt and rewind the ribbon as long as you know that brand is pretty close to summa's. also dont through away any cores or chip. please, be patient.

I have found that Watson Label Products make a great resin ribbon. Runs at a lower density to, so your looking at faster printing. Their core fit right over the Summa's plastic core. I usually just wrap a rubber band to keep it snug. They will send you free sample at http://www.wlp.com/eribbon/freesamples.asp . Make sure you choose the CSI, Coated Side In. The DC-400, super premium resin, works perfect.

For Vinyl I use: PSA 3.5 mil Premium Gloss White Vinyl – Clear Permanent Adhesive
It water slides, and ribbons do well with it. For only $154.95 for a 54"x150' roll.

I need help with the chips. Been looking for a DS1982U#F3 iButton duplicator, but not getting any help from the suppliers. Does anyone know a device that will or have another way to bypass the chip ordeal.
