Have you cleaned the printhead yet? If it is easy to get to. Use some alcohol and cotton cloth.

Where can I download the ICM or ICC color profile for the Zebra p330i printer?

Colour calibration is always a bit hit and miss with these. You can get big variations between screen RGB and the YMC that is actually printed.
Try in the downloads you can find developer manuals that may aid you. Or contact Zebra directly via the site.

Clean prinnter massage

The Zebra printer displays the Clean Printer message when the printer prints a 1000 cards.

This is to maintain printer and ensure good print quality.

The way to clear the message is to get cleaning cards and run a cleaning routine.

The CD that comes with the printer will run a video showing how to run the cleaning cards through the printer. Printer needs 2 unique cleaning cards (1 short & 1 Long)
