My fargo printer prints black and white on the back of the card

After fixing the card feeding problem, my printer prints the back side of the card in black and white, but it should print in color both side of the card. The front is just fine in full color, but the back side is printed in black and white. Why?

SOURCE: Fargo 4250 card printer runs, but doesn't print.

take the ribbon out, and rewind it a little bit and see if you see print on it. if you dont, chances are your printhead is either bad or has loose cables going into it.

if you do see print, either your card is not aligning properly or the head lift motor might not be working (when the unit on, open the door, and press both buttons at the same time and see if the printhead does an up and down motion), platen roller is bad

Edge to edge print problem


The Fargo DTC550 will not be able to print an "over the edge" card. Any Direct To Card printers will have a white line on the edges. There are several printers that are able to print covering the entire card, those printers are called Reverse Transfer or Fargo's High Definition Printers. One printer that I do recommend is the Fargo HDP5000, you can read more about it at: http://printers.idcardgroup.com/productdetails.aspx?item=hdp5000

My DTC 400 bladge printer jams a lot.


The DTC400 has an o ring that drives the card feed rollers. Fargo has had a problem on older DTC400 printers with the o ring stretched or broke. This causes irregular feed roller issues, ribbon breakage or misalignment of print registration.

It is recommended to do a ribbon sensor calibration. This can be done through your print driver using the directions in this link.

Your DTC400 came with a two year manufacturer warranty. Contact Fargo Technical Support at 800-459-5636.

Resolving a Card not fed error (Cards will not feed off the Hopper)


Make sure that your hopper card thickness guage (located on the right side of the hopper) is set to 30 ml or above if you are using standard 30 ml PVC cards. You may also need to clean the printer with a Fargo printer cleaning kit for this printer.

Also check to make sure to check your PVC cards. Sometimes they have too much static and can stick together not allowing them to feed. Fan the cards before placing them back in the hopper to make sure they are not sticking. In this process, try not to touch the printing surface of the cards as oils from skin will cause defective printing results.

Print quality with Fargo DTC500 printer


You might go to the print driver settings to change the way the printer prints the card. This can be found in the printing preferences. Go to the device options tab and choose "rotate front 180 degrees". Then print a card. This may fix the problem.

If not, try downloading the latest print driver from www.fargo.com.
