Could be that your cleaning unit is not installed or is old. Or, it could be too few cards in the card hopper. You could apply a little weight to the cards in the hopper to see if that helps. And/or try changing out the cleaning cartridge.

Sticky back card static causing them to stick togeather and not feed from the hopper


Hello Richard,

Sorry for the delay in replying to your request.

Feeding cards (especially self-adhesive types) from the rear hopper, can sometimes be frustrating. You have done the right thing by separating the cards (this applies to all cards - just fan down both sides like a dealer would with a pack of cards). This important.

Please try the following additional trick though;

Remove the rear hopper.
On the front panel, select Menu -> Test Card -> Yes (to confirm).
The rear hopper roller will start to rotate.
Take a fresh cleaning card (from the cleaning kit - 3633-0053) out of its wrapper. It MUST be damp.
Fold it into a loop and manually hold the cleaning card against the hopper roller as it turns (with gentle hand pressure). The idea of folding the cleaning card is to prevent it from being accidentally dragged into the rear of the printer.
After about 12 seconds, an Out of Cards 02:00 error will be displayed. Press Retry.
Turn the card over and repeat until there are no Black marks left of the cleaning card. Repeat as necessary moving to a fresh part of the cleaning card each time.
If the card should accidentally go too far into the printer, a Card Jam 06:05 error will be shown. Just open the lid, and close it again to clear the card jam error. The sequence will carry on from the previous stage (the hopper roller will start turning again shortly after closing the lid).
Once you are happy the roller is thoroughly clean, on the next Out of Cards error, press Cancel.
Discard the cleaning card which will probably have dried out by this point. Replace the rear hopper.

Card feeding should then be trouble-free.

If the problem should persist, contact your local Magicard support centre.

Kind Regards,

MC.

Card jam please clear printer


Hi Imran,
I realise you probably resolved this issue a long time ago, but this may help others with the same problem (Card Jam on Rio Pro / Enduro / Enduro+).
Immediately after the Card Jam - Please clear printer mechanism, there should be an error number. All card jam errors begin with 06:??. Most common would be Card Jam 06:05.
This error means that the rear card sensor has detected a card.
However, the card has not past through the sensor. This could indicate a failed card sensor (always on). This may sometimes be caused by static on the cards.
To confirm this, switch to 'Hand Feed Mode' (on the front panel: Menu -> Hand Feed Mode -> ON). Cards are then fed (when requested) from the hand-feed slot on the front of the printer. If the error changes from Card Jam 06:05, to General Error 24:08, this would suggest a faulty rear card sensor (very rare).
Try leaving the printer switched off, and with the DC power disconnected for a few hours. If the problem persists, you should contact Magicard Technical Support.

With Best Regards,

MC.

The hopper on top keeps jamming on D860!


If you are having jams in the Document Feeder, you should change the common rollers first.

Change these ones: FC5-0009 and FM2-0015
They're easy

Does anyone know of a roller repair kit for SP35. the rollers are hard and will not grip the card, to drive them thru the printer. they get half way thur and jam


A good clean using the cleaning cards should help.
how far does the card get into the printer?
Does it pick a card from the hopper OK?
You can replace the top rollers easily yourself, but the others would need to be done by an authorised reseller

Paper not feeding


This could be caused by several parts, the most likely is the paper eject sensor lever & spring being out of position. Get a stiff piece of A4 card such as the backing from a note pad. Make sure the print head is in the parked position (fully right). Position card in the feed hopper and push through the feed mech. Open the top and watch for the card to come through the printer. This should realign the lever and also clear any obstructions in the paper path. Always try to remove paper jams in the direction of the paper feed, pulling backwards can damage levers etc.

Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
