Bad printer cartridges. Turn off the unit and clean the golden contacts on both the ink cartridges and the printheads (the place where the ink cartridges sit on).

Be blessed.

Evolis Pebble 4 with a gold monochrome ribbon. Printing on pre printed blank cards. The print is not complete, almost as if there is not enough pressure on the card as it is printed. All the letters are...


Make sure you have selected gold ribbon in printer graphic properties.
Also you can try changing luminosity and treatment options in graphics under Advanced setting.
Check for print on a white card also as problem may be due to card surface also .
You should cklean print head also at once.

My printer has stopped printing the letters onto the dvd properly


1. Remove lid/top
2. Move blue lever left or right to unlock ribbon roll
3. Loosen ribbon or tighten as needed -
NOTES: If ribbon roll is too tight it will show wrinkles; it should look smooth if positioned correctly; if too tight it will not print portions of some letters; keep re-positioning if this does not work after first try.
4. Use flat-head screw driver to adjust front uptake (used) ribbon-roll as needed to make it smooth too. Lift out & re-position, if you need to.
THIS WORKED FOR ME but I had to re-do my re-positioning of both rolls several times before it began printing 100% of letters again. 4bb240d8-5e9d-4611-9ca4-33b5883e40b9.jpg 5a5b4381-7ee8-480f-943e-041aa738011d.jpg c86d59ae-1b7e-4755-b895-08007064e847.jpg Journal Kentucky Lexington Monitor www jklm us

Tops and bottoms of letters are cut off. I have changed the ink cartridge


Replace the old ink cartridge.
Verify that the unit is on. The On button is lit when the unit is on. If the device is not on, press the button to turn on the unit. Open the print cartridge door. The print carriage moves to the far right side of the unit. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. When replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. When replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Pull the print cartridge toward you and out of its slot. If the print cartridge is being removed because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. Removing the Tape from the catridge.
  1. Will have Copper-colored contacts.
  2. Plastic tape with pink pull tab ( must be removed before installing ).
  3. Ink nozzles under tape
  4. The HP All-in-One prompts for an alignment of the cartridges every time a print cartridge is installed or replaced. Follow these steps to align the print cartridges from the control panel.
  5. Top & Bottom not printing properly.
  6. Load unused, plain, white letter, A4, or legal paper into the input tray
  7. If coloured paper is loaded in the Input tray when the print catridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load unused, plain white paper into the input tray when the Printer catridges are aligned, the alignment will fail. Load and unused plain white paper into the Input Tray and then try the alignment again.
    1. Press 6 to select Tools .
    2. Press 2 to select Align Print Cartridge The unit prints a print cartridge alignment sheet.
    3. Load the alignment sheet print-side down and top first in the center of the document feeder tray, and then press OK. Now the printer will print properly.

If you are printing an envelope for a letter, In Microsoft Word 2003, click on Tools, Letters and Mailings, Envelopes and Mailings, and go from there. If it does not select the address, highlight it first. If you want to print an envelope that is not corresponding to a letter, type it in Microsoft Word and carry on with the same procedure. You will have to test an envelope to see which orientation works so that the front, back and flap are inserted properly. Usually the default is a #10 envelope. There is usually a movable plastic guide to fit an envelope in. Although I have not worked with this particular printer, the procedure is universal.
