Heater error in Sp75

Prints the card but indicates heater error thus does not laminate, (thermocouple problem in L1 laminator).
the card does not go beyond the duplex until u switch off and then on for it to be ejected at the back hopper.

Tenia el mismo problema, se soluciona verificando que el "ribbon" del laminador este colocado de la manera correcta y la cintilla blanca que tiene pegado uno de los extremos del "ribbon laminador" este pegada al mismo, ya que este funciona como un sensor, si este se despega, la impresora enviara una señal de error y no laminara

Sounds like either the thermocouple or the heater went out. Was this the error code?

OP-01604 Thermocouple problem in L1 laminator

The comments in the service manual states:
- Check the thermocouple wire for damage.
- If the thermocouple was recently replaced, verify that it is not installed backwards
- Verify that the thermocouple connector is not unplugged or plugged in backwards

I would probably order a replacement part, call in your local DataCard service representitive or send it to DataCard for repair.

Lamination Problem

You have to go to printer driver, see the general settings and put more darkness(normally it ranges from 0-20, it should be set at 10. Try puting the darkness at 11,12,13, etc until it laminates properly. Don't forget to put back the setting when printing ymcko, or you will burn ribbon.
If the head that prints color is the same that laminates, then you should be cleaning the head after use.

Error op-01619 lam comm error

In order of likeliness
1. Bad power supply in the printer, in the printer there are 2 power supply's if you have 1 lamination module 3 power supplys if you have 2. 1 power supply may have failed and need to be replaced. You will need to remove the outer covers check for the green light on the power supply. Then check the voltage with a volt meter.
2. Faulty system board. Try a firmware update.
3. If the printer was dropped or bumped hard it could be a loose cable inside.
If all that fails, I would take it in for service.

I have a zebra p520i and it will print a one sided card then go into mechanical error, I then can press the select button and it will travel the card past the laminator section and into the exit hopper and...

This sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning. You can use the correct cleaning cards (your dealer should be able to get them for you - but make sure you follow the instructions on the card carefully) or use IPA fluid.on a lint free cloth.

My datacard printer ribbon is supposed to get upto 500 images, but it is skipping every other color series so I am only getting 250 images

Every time you open the printer, it advances CMYK panel 01 to position the print head.This can cause loss of ribbon. Avoid opening the printer to the maximum you canoptimize your prints.

Running "test" cards on the SP75 Plus.

Is the test card meant to the laminator heated?

If so, you should be able to set the laminator time out from 30 minutes to 5 hours.

This is done through the front panel under the configuration menu.

Hope this helps

Air bubbles in laminate

Do you have a dual lamination station in your printer? How old is the printer?

There may be contaminates on heated platen that is causing the bubbles. I would go into the printer settings and try various settings such as LAM1-BOTH SIDES and LAM2-NONE then LAM1-NONE LAM2-BOTH SIDES to isolate the issue

Uper Duplex not holding card in place

early model sp75s have that type of problem. It can normally be fixed by replacing the clutch and duplex board. Very easy to replace. Be sure to be aware of the clutch spring when removing the duplex tray. Use the lower duplex assembly as a guide.
