My first thought is that the numbers being "hammered" against the paper are not reaching far enough. Test this theory by putting two layers of paper into the paper feed, (Fold the end of the roll over onto itself) and try printing again. It could be designed for a thicker paper.
Alternatively the new ribbon may also have dried out. Rub the ink ribbon with a paper, or pencil eraser and see if the ink readily comes off, perhaps use a pencil eraser to press it against the paper being fed through the machine.

These are diagnostics to find the error. Further investigation might be to see if there is any particles in the machine preventing it from hammering the numbers against the paper. Something might be in the way of the moving parts, something about the size of a paper hole punch paper, or pencil shaving. Shaking it vigorously upside down might solve this problem.

Good luck ;)

It may be time for a new ink ribbon.

Testimonial: "I guess I didn't explain the problem correctly. I have changed the ribbon it works for a few days then it is faint again. I have changed ribbon 5 times in two months."

Poor printing


Gain new cartridges, possible that application time ended in yours.

Try to clean nozzles of cartridges by humid (wet) fabrics

Faint type on metallic refills


Faded print is nearly always the 1st sign the batteries are nearly worn out - try new batteries. (it could be that metalic tape requires more power to print than the paper tape)

Black is used on all prints. Did you pull the tape on the new cartridge?

Printer is printing every line two times and is faint


if you said you have done and removed the tape and run all test, chances are the cartridge itself is the problem , return to vendor for a new replacement, this can sometimes happen
