Question about Zebra P330i Thermal Card Printer

2 Answers

We have Zebra Card Printer P330i. We use this printer for two purposes. One is using Black ribbon, and for other purpose we use YMCK ribbon. When we tried to print black image (a black square box) using YMCK ribbon, the result is perfect. But if we print that black square box using black ribbon, it gives us white stripes (tiger stripes) in the black square. We already did the cleaning, the firmware is the latest. Can someone help us ?

    The ribbon is positioned correctly. And no wrinkles in the ribbon. We also tried to print with new ribbon. The problem is still there.

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.

Keep getting broken ribbon message on zebra P330i printer


Hello, assuming the supplies are Zebra and there is no discernible damage to the ribbon, it could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. if your printer is still under warranty you can ship back to Zebra (Illinois) to get it repaired. The zebra website has info on how to return printers for service. Hope this helps.

What does a Polaroid p85igc card printer use for a full color ribbon? Zebra p330i ymcko ribbon won't work.


The "i"suffix was introduced in around 2005 to try to stop patent infringements on the printer ribbons. They introduced a chip on the spool that feeds back to the printer. The chip has to be the correct coding for the badge of the printer. Zebra P330i printers are essentially the same as Javelin J330i and Polaroid p85igc but have three different part numbers for their YMCKO ribbon. You can run any monochrome ribbon on them because the mono ribbons have no chip.....not much profit for the brand owners. YMCKO however is not interchangeable. Find a Polaroid dealer for the full colour ribbon.

Card cutting ribbon on Zebra P330i


On the front of the head. 4 screws are there.
Near the head where the ribbon contacts the card.
Loosen the top 2. Let the metal guard slide down a bit. Tighten the screws. Try a card.
Keep adjusting the guard until you tune it right.
