Dot Matrix Printer Ribbons

Dot matrix printing, impact matrix printing, line matrix printers are a type of computer printer which uses a printhead that runs back and forth on the page and prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth printer ribbon against the paper, much like the print mechanism on a typewriter.

QUESTION: I had to replace my carriage motor and my printer is not that old. What caused it to fail so soon?

Answer: The ribbon cartridge on many dot matrix printers use the carriage motor to turn the ribbon. What we have found is that people want to save a $1 on the ribbon so they buy clone ribbons and those ribbons put a strain on the carriage motor. After a short time, the motor gives out. It's not a defect in the motor or the design of the printer - it's the use of defective clone ribbons that has probably caused your problem.

Remember. If you find a dot matrix printer ribbon cheaper than on our site then their has to be a problem with that ribbon. You risk damaging your carriage motor and your printhead by using these inferior ribbons!
