SOURCE: Breaking Ribbon
Ribbon breaking continuously is caused by 2 common problems. 1. The printhead is going down before OR after the card has passed through. You would know this when you open your cover, and unlock you printhead, is the break before or after the card? Try printing the test page from the driver. That doesn't print "Edge to Edge" so if this is the problem, it should not break. 2. The print head heat settings are too high. If this is so, you can change this on the printers menu panel. I can explain more information, once I know your problem.

I think the problem is in the printer definition. Perhaps the software is calling for the output to be duplexed. The printer does not have a duplex installed so it creates the error. On the other hand, if the printer does have the duplex option, then you are looking at a printer problem.

SOURCE: Card Flip Jam Error message
Open the left hand top cover, In between the ribbon rollers you will see a small flipper, ( small piece of metal with a wheel stuck on one end. ) Maually turn this so the grey wheel is on top and white smaller wheel on the bottom.
This ocassional gets jammed and need righting manually.

take the ribbon out, and rewind it a little bit and see if you see print on it. if you dont, chances are your printhead is either bad or has loose cables going into it.
if you do see print, either your card is not aligning properly or the head lift motor might not be working (when the unit on, open the door, and press both buttons at the same time and see if the printhead does an up and down motion), platen roller is bad
