Question about Fargo Persona M11 Thermal Printer
I have lost the instruction book for my printer (above) and find that the print head needs cleaning and don't know how to go about doing so. Every other line is blank and I do have new ink cartridges in the machine.

Here is the link to the user manual; http://www.fargo.com/users_guides_pdf/Persona_C11_M11_User_Guide_Finalized_Rev.%205.01_.pdf Check page 181 for detailed instructions, page 179/180 for details of what you need to clean it. Hope this helps :)

are you sure you have the correct one in the correct slot?

SOURCE: bad print heads
This is a continuing problem we have with our Fargo DTC550 printer. If you remove the printhead from the printer and look at the underside you will see a nick on the head in the same area you are getting a line on your card. Fargo claims we damaged the head due to not keeping the printer clean even though we clean at every ribbon change. I believe that the damage happens when a plastic debris (from the plastic card) gets between the card and the head. You must check your card stock to make sure there is no plastic debris on them. Bottom line, you have to replace the head and at the time it costs $700 per head.

I had the same exact problem. What you need to do is in printer/settings Advanced settings there's a calibrate option at the very bottom of the menu. This allows you to adjust the area that gets printed. adjust accordingly. -4 for the top vertical setting seems to work the best. I know that it seems like you should adjust up instead of down but that's just how it works. Play around with that setting and you should have nice results.
