Try downloading the newest firmware/drivers (uninstall the old driver first - with the printer off).
and see if that helps.

I have Zebra P330i printer, have done the cleaning using short and long cards. Display shows "Ready". On printing using color ribbon, the messages (Printing Yellow, Printing Magenta...)appear on...


Knowing that you were able to complete the proper cleaning procedure using the short and long cards, and the printer is on ready status, try to change the ribbon and test. Make sure the card is properly inserted with the magnetic stripe on the top facing down. Also make sure that the ribbon is properly loaded. There should be an instruction on the cover for its proper orientation.
If it still does not print, make sure your configuration on the printer is set to the proper type of cards HICO or LOCO and the ribbon type is properly set to YMCKO for color. Also, check if you have enabled mag stripe encoding or if you don't need to have it enabled. Enabling means that the printer will check for the mag stripe if its good or bad. If bad the printer will reject the card.
Do a self test print by following the below. 1. Set the printer's power switch (on the back of the printer) to the OFF ( O ) position. 2. While pressing the Printer's front panel button (next to the LCD display panel), switch the printer ON ( ' ). 3. Hold the panel button until the LCD display panel reads "SELF TEST". 4. Release the panel button, and the test card will print
If no prints, observed for any mechanical errors on the printer. Normally mechanical errors are detected by the printer with corresponding error message.
If none of the above works then you might have a print head problem. You may attempt to clean it by following below. Else if it does not help then have your print head replaced.
A cleaning using the Cleaning Cards usually suffices. However, a separate Print Head cleaning can remove more stubborn deposits when print anomalies persist. To avoid deposits, only use foam-tipped swabs. 1. Place the printer power switch in the OFF ( O ) position. 2. Open the Main Cover, release the Print Head Carriage, and remove the ribbon. Leave the Print Head Carriage in its raised position. (For details, see Chapter 2.) 3. Clean Print Head by moving an alcohol-moistened swab tip side-to-side across the Print Head elements. Only use moderate force. To re-order swabs, please refer to the Media List on the Windows Drivers and User Documentation CD supplied with this printer. 4. The swabs can also be used in a similar manner to clean the optional magnetic encoding head.

The printer breaks the silver hologram ribbon everytime i print.it only break the silver ribbon when i do holograms


If your ribbon is breaking while printing a card, there area few things to look at.

  • Check that the printer driver has the appropriate ribbon selected. If a different ribbon is selected on the driver other than what you are using in the printer. Go into the driver and change the setting to the correct ribbon.
  • Another reason your ribbon may be breaking is because the "X" offset is set too low or too high, in other words the printing is beginning too close to the left side of the card, or ending too much to the right side so when the print head goes down to print on the card, the ribbon gets sliced because the print head and the edge of the card knife the ribbon. In order to eliminate this problem, increase or decrease the "X" offset value. I recommend a minimum of three digits up/down depending on the circumstance. For example: X-offset = 06...increase X-offset to 09. If the "X" offset is to high...EX: X-offset = 20...decrease X-offset to 17. Do not increase or decrease the value by more than 5.
  • If ribbon appears melted onto card, the print head may be damaged. Do not try adjusting. Immediately contact your re-seller or Zebra technical support.
  • If ribbon is breaking and nothing is being printed onthe card, contact your re-seller or Zebra technical support.

I recently upgraded my print head from a 200 dpi print head to a 300 head. After doing so i have noticed a problem with the 2D datamartix barcode after printing. It is slightly rectangular in shape. Zebra...


Make sure that you change to a 300dpi printer driver. The "dot" size on the 300 is slightly smaller than the 203 so if you are still sending data from a 203dpi driver, the print images will be slightly smaller because of the difference in the dot sizes. That may be affecting your datamatrix code.


Hope that helps !

My printer makes a very thin stripe in the print on all cards, it looks like a dust-particle problem, but the print head seems to be clean, can there be something else?


Looks like you may have a dust particle on your print head. Try cleaning it with a cleaning card. If it does not go away, it may be that your print head is slightly damaged, which means you will have to change the print head.

Label will print up/down with the letters sideways


The printer will only print the information it receives. The software and the driver is in charge of sending information to the printer, and if something is wrong is because any form configuration options is not correct. Try re-installing the software again or load the default parameters. Also try to design a new format.

Clean prinnter massage


The Zebra printer displays the Clean Printer message when the printer prints a 1000 cards.

This is to maintain printer and ensure good print quality.

The way to clear the message is to get cleaning cards and run a cleaning routine.

The CD that comes with the printer will run a video showing how to run the cleaning cards through the printer. Printer needs 2 unique cleaning cards (1 short & 1 Long)

Zebra P330i


we have the same problem with our 330i !!

I updated the firmware to V1.16.11 and the printer drivers as well, then I started the cleaning process.
The printer has printed only 337 cards, so it is rather new.

All monocolor printed cards are ok (black, gold,...), but not even one 4color card.
It looks like the sync of the colorribbon does not work properly.
Is there a possibilty to check the sensors or are perhaps informations about the sensors on the cardtest-card ?

Thank you for any help !
