Go to zebra and download the latest firmware and drivers (free).
update the firmware first
turn printer off
then uninstall (from uninstall programs) the zebra drivers.
then install latest zebra driver.
turn printer on

Double click on printer icon, click on properties.
Click on the device options tag, then click on the properties next to tools
Enter "CALB" and click execute - this will re-calibrate your ribbon

First try the CALB, if your current firmware does not recognize it, then you will
need to upgrade the firmware as above.

CALB does not work, I don't know why everyone recommends this command, but as a trained technician who works on these machines daily it will not work. try !SA instead, this is a self adjustment for all sensors. Also try !CSA 0 without the ribbon in the machine, and !CSA 1 with the ribbon (color ribbon only) in the machine. if all else fails try !CSA 5 70 120 to manually set the values, beyond this you would be looking at parts replacement which are best performed by a trained tech.

Hp 2050 deskjet printer: colours are confused and orange is printing green.


Try checking you color settings on printer and computer. Also, check your ink cartridge and it's date of manufacture. Sometimes old cartridges behave like that.

Where can I download the ICM or ICC color profile for the Zebra p330i printer?


Colour calibration is always a bit hit and miss with these. You can get big variations between screen RGB and the YMC that is actually printed.
Try zebra.com in the downloads you can find developer manuals that may aid you. Or contact Zebra directly via the site.

My zebra card printer p330 i donbt recognized the colour ribbo YCMK, only detect the mono ribbon


The P330i is not supposed to work with the YMCK color ribbon, you should use the YMCKO 800015-440 color ribbon.

I have a hp 6500. It has started printing pink instead of black.


Either:
* printers mix in a bit of "colour" ink when you request BLACK,
so that the colour ink-jets do not dry-out. So, since your BLACK has become EMPTY, all you get is PINK,

or,

* some printers mix colours to produce BLACK-ish colour.
Check that your CYAN and YELLOW ink-cartridges have not gotten to be EMPTY.

After replacing cartridge in dell 810 the colours printing wrong


Hi

If you haven´t used your inkjet printer for a while it may just be dry ink clogging some of the nozzles in the print head.


To check if yours is clogged...


Remove the ink cartridges
Holding the cartridge upright and press down gently onto a paper towel.

The colour cartridge
you should see YELLOW, MAGENTA (red) and CYAN (blue)

But if any colours are missing? The inks have probably just clogged up? and you will need to buy a new one or if you know you still have ink then you can easily unclog it with a
Magic Inkjet Flush Kit (Which you can find on Ebay)

MIXED COLOURS
If you have others colours coming out then the colours have mixed...
Sometimes caused when people put tape onto the inks to keep them moist but instead the colours mix through capilary action.


If so... leave print head sitting on a paper towel for a few mins until the correct colours appear.



Read more about ink clogs here:
How to Clean, Fix, Repair, Unclog, Dry, Clogged Print Heads on CANON, EPSON, HP, Lexmark, Dell, Olivetti etc…

To prevent an ink clog it is best if you print something regularly about every 10 days to keep the tiny print head nozzles / jets open. Otherwise the ink in the print head will thicken. Then it´s like trying to pass a camel through the eye of a needle.

So to preven inkjet ink from clogging print something every 10 days if you dont have anything to print, use something like these test prints

P330i card printer


Just a note, you need to be careful when sending the !SA command, as in some of the earlier firmware versions pre v1.16.11 , it can "double count" the i-series chip contained in the ribbon. So for example if you run the !SA command with a new ribbon with 200 prints remaining, it is possible after 100 prints the chip has counted down and the printer displays "OUT OF RIBBON" even though you have half a ribbon left.
I would use the following procedure to recalibrate the colour sensor only:-
1). Remove ribbon and lock the printhead down
2). Send the command !CSA_0 (Where "_" represents a space) - allow this stage to complete
3). Insert the ribbon and lock the printhead down.
4). Send the command !CSA_1 (Where "_" represents a space) - allow the calibration to complete.
This has works for me 99% of the time where the sensor array is faulty.
