Question about Magicard Rio Card Printer

1 Answer

File Error (c600)

Hi,

Today, the ribbon snapped in our Rio, which i fixed the usual way by rejoining the rollers. But since i have done this, i am unable to print any cards, although there is no warning lights and the status monitor indicates as "Ready".

I have tried reinstalling the drivers and printer software with the newest software available on the Magicard website but still no printing.

I think it is some sort of communications error because after 5 mins of doing nothing i get the error c600 (file error).

Any advice would be great.

Thanks in advanced.
Richard Watson.

Hi There,

I'm sure this must be a coincidence.

When the ribbon snapped, did the printer report and 'Out of dye film' error on the PC (via the Status Monitor)?

Did you install the latest version of the driver (V6.02 is compatible with both Rio 1 and Rio 2)?

You can download this here;

http://www.magicardonline.net

Just enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box.

If you are updating to a later driver version, please make sure you choose 'Update driver files' rather than 'Add a printer when give the choice (you will need to restart your PC).

I hope this helps.

Regards,

MC.

Flipper error


Hi There,
Exactly which model do you have?
Only the Rio Pro model has a flipper fitted. If it is the Rio Pro, there will also be an error number at the end of the error (18:??).

Kind Regards,

Printing lines on cards


Hello Richard,

Sorry for the delay in replying to your request.
You may have already resolved your issue by now.
The advice below may help others with the same issue though.

In the case of a damaged (scratched) printhead, the lines always run along the cards longest length (landscape), and are always in exactly the same place.
They are normally White, and usually very thin (just a few pixels wide). You would also see the line on the used dye film too by unwinding some film from the take-up spool (at the front of the printer).

Sometimes in the case of older out-of warranty printers, it is easier / cheaper just to avoid that are of the card using the card design. The image can also be rotated 180 degrees in the driver's Printing Preferences. However, if the card design has a solid colour background, or the White line is in the centre of the card, printhead replacement may be the only option.

Depending on which Rio model you have (Rio, Rio 2, Rio2e, or Rio Pro), different printhead assemblies are available as a field replaceable unit. Part numbers are below;

Magicard Rio - FG/M9005-794
Magicard Rio 2 / Rio 2e - FG/M9006-630E
Magicard Rio Pro - FG/3652-0160

All are available from your local Magicard dealer / reseller.

Prevention is better than cure;

  • Replace the sticky cleaning roller in the cleaning cassette as regular as possible.
  • Only use good quality blank PVC card stock (no sharp edges, or burrs)
  • Clean the printer regularly using the appropriate cleaning kit;

    Rio, Rio 2, Rio 2e (Cleaning kit part number: M9005-761)
    Rio Pro - (Cleaning kit part number 3633-0053) *
    Rio Pro - (Sticky roller kit (5 rollers +metal shaft) - 3633-0054)*
    * A sticky cleaning roller is supplied with every new dye film

Kind Regards,

MC.

Magiccard Rio printer is giving error code 24:24


Error code 24:24 means that the sensors need to be replaced. This requires sending the printer back to MagiCard for them to replace the sensors.

Hi i have a problem to my persona c30e printer, it prints but the image is too blurry? is it normal to the printer making that laud noise.


Welcome to FixYa!

Solution to loud noises:


Check the ribbon cartridge and ensure that the cleaning roller is properly installed and rolls smoothly

inside the cartridge. Then check the plate underneath the cleaning roller and verify the 4 pins are seated properly.


Solutions to blurry prints:



1. Make sure the printer has the latest firmware via the web. >> Click Here << to download the latest firmware (Look for "Persona C30e Firmware_Windows/Linux 4.3.0.1 "). The firmware upgrade file is packed in zip file. Extract it to a directory of your choice.

>> Click Here << for an instruction on how to upgrade the firmware. When being prompted to locate the "upgrade file", browse to where you extracted the firmware upgrade file.


2. Calibrate the ribbon sensor. If you have completed these 2 steps and the printer still prints out faded or light cards,



3. Try a new power supply. Part# (E000480). Note: Please verify the proper power supply is being used.


Thank you for using FixYa!

The printer ribbon keeps breaking and when it does


The printer needs to be cleaned and the cleaning roller (the cylinder thingy that comes wrapped) may need to replaced. You will know if it needs to be replaced if it looks dirty.

"warning Ribbon In" error message


Had the same problem with a ZM400. As stated in the User manual (can be downloaded http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html?FRRBarcodePrinters=6882), warning "Ribbon in" is usually caused by the wrong printing method (thermal direct instead of thermal transfer [which should be selected for ribbbons]). My error disappeared after choosing "thermal transfer" directly on the printer. For network printers this needs to be set by an admin in the network settings for the the printer to solve the problem permanently.
