Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try replacing the ribbon cartridge, also.
If that does not work - or esp., if the printer is not moving mechanically, obviously not imprinting onto the tape, then you have a defective printer portion, that will need servicing/repairs.
If you need to know where to take, or where to send, your SAM4S register or is printer portion for service-repair, let me know your local zip code, please.
