You have to put darkness setting down on your driver.
2 chances: a) you have the headset with too much temperature due to darkness setting, or you are printing a particular color like metallic blue, gray or intense yellow that can make headset hotter.
b) When you say you have just a left side printed, i remembered customers that set the ribbon to 1/2 YMCKO, check it's not your case

SOURCE: have a Pebble 4 card printer and the ribbon breaks after each card is printed.

This is a very common problem within all ID Card Printers and might have multiple causes. Most common are sharp edges at the end of the card, or a high contrast/intensity image thats being printed.

Check the cards for sharp edges, if edges are very sharp and beveled up, discard the cards immediately as they can also damage your printhead.

Lower the quality and/or contrast within the printers divers/graphic menu.

Why is the ribbon tearing when it feeds?


Possible ribbon tear causes are:
1. Your Heat setting (Printhead temp) is too high - normal is about 10
2. You have something stuck on one of the surfaces the ribbon is contacting, i.e. a piece of label.
3. Something is out of place that is contacting the ribbon, i.e. a loose spring or wire.
4. Something is bent and/or out of alignment - look for where the ribbon starts tearing and examine that area carefully.

    Thermal ribbons broke in dye sub printer


    hi,
    by ripped, do you mean that the ribbons have come off the hinges or are they torn?
    if they are torn, any small cracks or torn edges will not harm much. but if the ribbon is sliced to pieces, they have to be replaced, as you cannot work with torn ribbon. here is a link to the manual with which you can replace the ribbons.

    cheers

    Paper-stuck errors


    1. turn printer off and back on, maybe it can solve problem itself. if it gives you a specific error code, check manual for its meaning. 2. turn printer off 3. remove paper trays, check for any wrinkled or torn papers in there. 4. open all entrances to achieve reaching ways for all parts. 5. if needed, remove tuner. put it in a sealed bad to prevent damage. 6. if you see a stuck piece of paper, pull it strong, with both hands. your goal is to keep it from tearing to pieces. 7. if it gets torn, spin the wheels manually to release it, do not use force. 8. return the tuner, close all entrances. 9. if it happens again, dismantle it again and follow the paper route.
