MickDostie had the right idea, I used his method and added a piece of Aluminum Foil on the contacts of the ID Pal and BAM! it works. Thanks

Hi, I had the same problem with my Brady IDPAL... here's what I did to make it work again:

-I took a piece of cardboard and cut a square about an inch²
-I wedged it in the crack right under the BRADY sign between the frame of the IDPAL and the cartrige of vinyl so that the lower part of the cartridge in question is pressed firmly against the 3 metal ``cartridge detector``.
-The problem seems to be caused by these ``detectors``

It worked for me and I hope it works for you.
Good luck and good day

There are 3 electrical contact wires in the cartridge cavity above the POWER button. The cartridges have a conductive surface that "shorts" a pair of these contacts depending on the cartidge. Make sure the conductive surface on the cartridge is clean and is making good contact with the contacts.

While all those solutions work, I took mine apart. The three wires are soldered on one end to the circuit board, the other end, that you can't see has a 90 degree bend. Over time the part you can see, the three wires, there is also an bend on them. I found by pulling the wires up slightly with a small tool, like an Awl, you can restore the bend and thus the contact where the wires hit on the little metal piece on the bottom of the cartridge. Worked fine for me.

The tray is for the DVD or CD itself, not for a label. The printer prints directly on the CD or DVD, you must use ink jet compatible blank disks, the white ones with no printing. You don't need a tray to print the label.

Does it still print on plain paper? Check to see if you are missing one or more labels as they may have come off and onto a roller or other part. I've found that label sheets with any labels removed prior to printing are always prone to loosing labels in the process of traveling through the printer.

Label Printing


I had the same issue when using Avery labels, here's what resolved it for me.

Go to Control Panel, Printers, go to the active default, right mouse click, click Printing Prefrences..., change the drop down "Type is:" to 'Other Photo Paper" and apply.

You should then be good to go!
