The "ribbon parameter card" is a little chip that is delivered with every newly bought pack of ribbons. You need to insert this card in the fitting slot of the printer (at the backside I assume), and let the printer read the contents of the chip. Once finished, you can remove the card.
You need to follow this procedure for the printer to be able to work with the new ribbon. If you do not have the chip for that ribbon you can not use it.

Pls do the following:-

Card keeps jamming and ribbon breaks


Download the Fargo Diagnose Utility .

But Requires Windows 98, 2000, NT, XP, Me; 16MB of RAM (Recommended); SVGA Monitor (800x600 or higher is required); and at least one printer drivers installed.

If a card becomes jammed inside the printer, the LCD Display will indicate
approximately where it is jammed. At this point you can either try to correct the
problem and continue printing with the same card, or remove the card completely
and continue printing with a new card. Refer to the following steps for instructions
on doing either:
1. Leave the power ON, and open of the printer?s Top Covers.

2. Remove the ribbon and overlaminate as needed.

3. If you would like to try to correct the problem and continue printing with
the same card, do so by pressing the On/Cancel button to advance the card or
the Pause/Resume button to reverse the card. Use these buttons to help free the
card from its jam. Try not to move the card too far from where it was just
before the jam occurred. Once the jam is cleared, replace media, close the Top
Cover(s), and press the Pause/Resume button to resume printing.

4. If you would like to remove the jammed card completely, do so by using the
On/Cancel and Pause/Resume buttons to manually eject the card. Then,
replace media, close the Top Covers, and press the On/Cancel button. At this
point, the LCD Display will prompt you to either press the Pause/Resume
button or the On/Cancel button. Pressing the Pause/Resume button will cause
the printer to feed in a new card and reprint the job which originally jammed
along with all subsequent jobs still being sent. Pressing the On/Cancel button
will reboot the printer and cancel all jobs within the printer?s memory. In this
case, you must also cancel and resend the print jobs from your computer.

CLEARING A RIBBON OR OVERLAMINATE JAM
If the ribbon or overlaminate becomes stuck to a card or jammed inside the printer,
the LCD Display will indicate that it is jammed. Refer to the following steps to clear
the jam:
1. Leave the power ON, and open the printer?s Top Covers as necessary.
2. Remove the Take-Up core (the side with used ribbon or overlaminate on it)
from in between the two black Drive Hubs.
3. Steadily pull the ribbon or overlaminate free from where it is jammed. If stuck
to a card, pull the ribbon or overlaminate off the card and throw the card away.
If it is jammed underneath the rollers, press and hold down the printer?s
Pause/Resume button as you gently pull up on the ribbon or overlaminate. Do
not **** the ribbon or overlaminate to free it, since this will increase the chance
of breaking it. If it does happen to break, simply tape the broken end of the
supply roll directly onto the take-up roll. Then, wind a few inches worth of
ribbon or overlaminate from the supply roll onto the take-up roll. Be sure the
ribbon or overlaminate is passing beneath both the supply and take-up rolls.
4. Once the jam is cleared, replace media, close the Top Covers, and press the
On/Cancel button. At this point, the LCD Display will prompt you to either
press the Pause/Resume button or the On/Cancel button. Pressing the
Pause/Resume button will cause the printer to feed in a new card and reprint
the job which originally jammed along with all subsequent jobs still being sent.
Pressing the On/Cancel button will reboot the printer and cancel all jobs
within the printer?s memory. In this case, you must also cancel and resend the
print jobs from your computer.
H. CLEANING THE CARD FEED ROLLERS
To assure consistent printer operation, all of the gray card feed rollers within the
printer should be cleaned during every ribbon change (every 250 prints) or if the
rollers are noticeably dirty. To clean these rollers, use the special adhesive-backed
Cleaning Cards from the Printer Cleaning Kit. Refer to the following steps to run a
Cleaning Card through your printer:
1. Open the Top Covers and remove all print supplies from the printer. Leave the
printer power ON and the Top Covers open throughout this procedure. The
Cleaning Roller Assembly can also remain within the printer during this
cleaning process.
2. Remove the Cleaning Card?s adhesive backing paper.

How do one resolve and out of ribbon error, when there is a a ribbon present. I'm getting this error on a P430i zebra printer.


The P430 and the P330 are similar, P430 print both sides from the card, and the P330 just print one site, but the commands to send are the sane. Please try !SA command from the driver.

Getting error on printer


Take out the cartridges and Perform a partial reset on the printer.

  1. Unplug the power cord from the unit.
  2. Reconnect the power cord into the unit.
  3. When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume and Paper Size buttons.
  4. When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release the buttons. When the On/Resume light is steady, the reset is complete.
  5. Insert the cartridges and try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.

Keep getting replace yellow ink cartridge error message


Hi,

Where did you get the error message on printer or computer?

If you get the message on printer remove all cartridges and reinsert the cartridges and align the ink cartridges. If the alignment page prints successfully then the problem is resolved.

If you get the message on the computer disconnect the usb from computer. uninstall the software and reinstall the full feature software by selecting connect USB later.

Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken


When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

"warning Ribbon In" error message


Had the same problem with a ZM400. As stated in the User manual (can be downloaded http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html?FRRBarcodePrinters=6882), warning "Ribbon in" is usually caused by the wrong printing method (thermal direct instead of thermal transfer [which should be selected for ribbbons]). My error disappeared after choosing "thermal transfer" directly on the printer. For network printers this needs to be set by an admin in the network settings for the the printer to solve the problem permanently.
