How to Change Ink on a Lipman Nurit 8000

By Nathaniel Miller

  • Overview

    The Lipman Nurit 8000 is a credit card point-of-sale processing center that does not require phone lines or an Internet connection. Instead, it uses AT&T's wireless network to contact financial institutions and run credit/debit number checks. This process greatly speeds up the the purchase path for the customer and the business owner. Once the transaction has been completed, a receipt is printed directly from the Nurit 8000, providing a record for both the customer and salesman. This technology is a wonderful convenience for all parties involved, but eventually the ink will run out of the Lipman Nurit 8000. Luckily, the machine uses an easy-to-change ink ribbon.

    • Step 1

      Power the machine down and unwrap the self-contained ink ribbon from its packaging. These ribbons are available from a variety of vendors, but purchasing from the manufacturer is normally less expensive and ensures a proper fit. Examine the new ink ribbon to make sure it was not damaged in transit and look for the indicator arrows that explain which end faces up when the ribbon is placed in the machine.
    • Step 2

      Locate the release switch on the side of the machine. This is the same switch that is used to open the machine compartment to replace the paper ribbon, so it will be easy to find. Depress the release button and lift the face of the machine up to expose the paper compartment and ink ribbon.

    • Step 3

      Hit the small release button next to the ink ribbon cartridge and carefully pull the ink ribbon straight up. Discard the old ink ribbon and slide the new ink ribbon into place based on the arrows on the ribbon cartridge and inside the cartridge cradle. Press down firmly to engage the cartridge cradle and then close the lid. Power up the machine and see if it recognizes the ink ribbon.
    • Skill: Easy
    • Ingredients:
    • Ink ribbon
    • Tip: Replacing the ink cartridge when you get a low ink indicator rather than when print quality is affected will prolong the life of the machine internals and ensure that business operations are not hindered by a faulty ink cartridge.
    • Warning:
    • Do not touch the ink ribbon itself as the oils from your skin can degrade and damage the ribbon.
