Abstract

PURPOSE: To make it possible to accurately discriminate the color of a ribbon part, by making it possible to allow light, which was passed through each ribbon part, to selectively pass through only a specific color filter and detecting the light passed through said color filter.
CONSTITUTION: Color discriminating light emitting parts 31, 32, 33 and corresponding light receiving parts 34, 35, 36 are provided and pervious filters 37, 38, 39 are arranged so as to correspond to said parts. The lights projected to a moving color ink ribbon 50 from the light emitting parts 31, 32, 33 are passed through the ribbon part to be respectively projected to three color filters 37, 38, 39. Only the light of the color passed through one of said filters is received by either one of the light receiving parts 34, 35, 36 and an electric signal is outputted to perform the discrimination of a color. By this constitution such that the light passed through each color filter is detected, the accurate discrimination of the color of the ribbon part is enabled and large effect is especially developed when a ribbon is moved at a high speed.
