Question about Magicard Rio ID 2 Card Printer

Magicard Rio ID 2 Card Photo doesn't fit in the pre printed space on the card

Hi,

Like the title says we have recently purchased this machine to produce staff cards at work. I have adjusted in printer preferences using image position but it is still roughly 2 mm out of the pre printed box and doesn't look professional as a result.

Could anyone help?

Hi There,

Could you scan one of your cards and insert the image in your reply?
Just a dummy card will do. It helps to be able to see the problem.
Which application are you printing the badges from?
The image position is only for very small 'fine tuning' adjustments to the card start and end positions.


Regards,

MC.

Hello Joseph,
Is it possible to print and scan your printer's built-in internal test card.
Then include a link to a good high resolution scan of the test card?
On the Rio, Rio 2, and Rio 2e, push the small button on the rear of the printer (with the lid closed, and dye film fitted). For the Rio Pro, on the front panel choose Menu -> Test Card - Yes (to confirm).
This will help identify the cause.
Exactly which model do you have? There were several Rio models. (the one in the picture is the original Rio). Later models were Rio 2, Rio 2e, and currently the Rio Pro.

Kind Regards,

MC

Flipper error


Hi There,
Exactly which model do you have?
Only the Rio Pro model has a flipper fitted. If it is the Rio Pro, there will also be an error number at the end of the error (18:??).

Kind Regards,

Printing lines on cards


Hello Richard,

Sorry for the delay in replying to your request.
You may have already resolved your issue by now.
The advice below may help others with the same issue though.

In the case of a damaged (scratched) printhead, the lines always run along the cards longest length (landscape), and are always in exactly the same place.
They are normally White, and usually very thin (just a few pixels wide). You would also see the line on the used dye film too by unwinding some film from the take-up spool (at the front of the printer).

Sometimes in the case of older out-of warranty printers, it is easier / cheaper just to avoid that are of the card using the card design. The image can also be rotated 180 degrees in the driver's Printing Preferences. However, if the card design has a solid colour background, or the White line is in the centre of the card, printhead replacement may be the only option.

Depending on which Rio model you have (Rio, Rio 2, Rio2e, or Rio Pro), different printhead assemblies are available as a field replaceable unit. Part numbers are below;

Magicard Rio - FG/M9005-794
Magicard Rio 2 / Rio 2e - FG/M9006-630E
Magicard Rio Pro - FG/3652-0160

All are available from your local Magicard dealer / reseller.

Prevention is better than cure;

  • Replace the sticky cleaning roller in the cleaning cassette as regular as possible.
  • Only use good quality blank PVC card stock (no sharp edges, or burrs)
  • Clean the printer regularly using the appropriate cleaning kit;

    Rio, Rio 2, Rio 2e (Cleaning kit part number: M9005-761)
    Rio Pro - (Cleaning kit part number 3633-0053) *
    Rio Pro - (Sticky roller kit (5 rollers +metal shaft) - 3633-0054)*
    * A sticky cleaning roller is supplied with every new dye film

Kind Regards,

MC.

Doesn't print correctly, the film doesn't go where it should


Hello Carlo,
When you say your printer doesn't print correctly, could you give some more details? What is the problem with the printing?

Also, could you may attach a photo / card scan which shows the problem? The internal test card would be best (press the small test button on the rear of the printer.

Regards,

MC.

Cards are printing with the last couple of cms completely black


Hello Sam,
The most common reason for this issue would be an over stretched dye film advance drive belt. This happens as they get older.

Send an email to;

support@magicard.com

Quote your printer's serial number (on the rear of the printer).
We can arrange to send you a replacement drive belt (RIO/0037/R).
The belt is very easy to fit (2 minutes work!). It fits behind the right-hand side cover, at the rear of the printer.

With Best Regards,

MC

I have a Magicard Rio I keep getting the error message card jam error 02:12 yet there is no card jam if i put a card in the back it ejects it correctly help


Hello Colin,
I'm not sure how old your printer is, but I suspect this is caused by a loose connection on the front card sensor (especially if the error occurs when initialising). If there is a loose connection, the card sensor always shows as blocked (hence the error 02:12). I guess this is a Rio 2e and not a Rio 2 model.

Send us an email to;

support@magicard.com

Make sure you quote the printer's serial number in the email.
I can send you some detailed instructions for confirming this is the problem, and also suggestions for repairing the printer.

Regards,

MC.

Magicard rio 2e, the printer needs to print the access codes on the otherside


The Rio 2E is a single side printer to print on both sides of the card you need a Tango 2E Printer.

The cards are sticking


Hi There,

Im_useless:
0.126 is not a Magicard error number. On a Rio 2 printer, the error number will be displayed on the LCD display. It should look like 02:?? or 04:??, etc.

Are the cards feeding out of the hopper?
How far into the printer have they gone before you get the error?
Are any of the dye film panels printed before the card gets stuck?
Are the cards ejected when you click on 'OK'?

Guest:
The most common reason for the dye film sticking to the cards are if they already have overcoat printed on them (you can not print over overcoat). Also, if you are printing very dense images, try selecting 'ColorSure' mode in the printing preferences, Try reducing the YMC printhead power in printing preferences.
