The Fargo DTC550 will not be able to print an "over the edge" card. Any Direct To Card printers will have a white line on the edges. There are several printers that are able to print covering the entire card, those printers are called Reverse Transfer or Fargo's High Definition Printers. One printer that I do recommend is the Fargo HDP5000, you can read more about it at: http://printers.idcardgroup.com/productdetails.aspx?item=hdp5000

How do I print edge to edge on Fargo HDP5000?


Access the printer-driver settings (Windows=>Devices and Printers=>Right-click on device, select "Printing Preferences"). Next, click the "Image Transfer" tab. Here you can make some adjustments to the image position - both vertically and horizontally.

If this doesn't help, double-check your page-size and print-parameters in your software. You should be outputting to a "CR80" sized card, and (if present) your margin settings should be 0 for all of top, bottom, left, and right.

If that doesn't help, then you may have to perform ribbon and/or film calibrations. These are available through the "Self Test" menus within the Printer Information screen of the (free) Fargo Workbench Utility program.

My Zebra P110i is not printing it's cards correctly, When I print a card, there is always a 2mm blank line gap on the end of the card where the printer has not printed on it. I've cleaned the printer,...


The Zebra P110i printer is an Edge-To-Edge card printer, which means it will print on the card closest to the edge as possible, however there will still be a slight line. Although a 2mm line is too big, should be no more than 1mm, there will still always be a line.

There are some advanced EC (end card) settings that could be adjusted but if the print goes too close to the edge, the ribbon will get cut.

When printing, the toner does not completely get distributed. Consequently we are left with a "white" line through the print on the right-hand side. The white begins about 7/8ths inches in from edge and...


It can either be the toner cartridge itself, or the fuser.

Try a full cleaning, and if that does not help at all, you will have to replace the toner or fuser or both.

White stripe in print-outs


This is a common problem with this printer. Each toner color has it's own roller. The tin blade on the inside edge of the roler gets plasticy buildup and needs to be cleaned.

Pull out the entire toner roller assembly for the color that is problmatic. Unscrew the tin blade from the roller assembly. Clean the inside edge of this blade (the part that scrapes on the roller) completely. NOTE: After cleaning mine with toilet paper & water I ran my fingernail along the edge to find that the waxy buildup was still there. I gently took my fingernail and scraped at it until it felt smooth -- no burrs.

NOTE: The edge of this blade is very sharp! Be careful. Don't run your finger along the edge.

Reinsall the tin plate maing sure that the foam sweeps (on the right and left of the blade) are not stuck under the tin blade. (If you do, it will dump large amounts of toner on your pages. Very messy).

Give her a whirl.

White border on edge of print


The only way would be to use a bigger piece of paper and cut it down to the size you need...... The copier will always leave a white border a round the edges.... It is done so the toner can be fixed into the paper with out off setting or jamming

Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line


This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh

Fargo Pro-L Not Printing Edge-To-Edge


These direct-to-card printers do not print right to the edge because of the way the print head comes down on the card. There will always be a white boarder on the card especially if your graphics are dense. The only solution to this issue is to re-design your artwork so that the image fades at the edges of the card so the white boarder is not obvious, or purchase a re-transfer printer which will give you true over the edge printing.
