Eltron P310 Ribbon Issue.

Hi,

I have a Eltron P310 Card Printer here, the ribbon keeps snapping in the middle under the printhead and wrapping around the roller at the bottom. Is there any reason this keeps doing this as its driving me crazy???

Thanks in advance

SOURCE: Z4MPlus Ribbon wrinkles causing lines diagonally across label.

Could be down to tension on the ribbon roller/spool. Check to see if you have pulled out the end part of the spool (black bit) that should ensure there is back tension on the ribbon.

Check that you are in thermal transfer mode and not in Direct thermal.

SOURCE: I replaced the ribbon in

There is a diagram that shows the correct route to thread the ribbon and media in the upper lid. All zebra ribbons come off the supply hub clockwise (left to right) and the ribbon only goes under one roller prior to the print head.

There are long axis print voids. Does the print head need to be replaced?


Before replacing your printhead, try cleaning the printer, run the cleaning card and also clean the printhead using the alcohol saturated swab, zebra part number 105909-169. In some cases that will fix your issue, if not your printhead needs to be replaced. If replacing your printhead, please make sure your card stock are clean and don't have sharp edges as that could be the cause for a scratched/burned pixel on the printhead.

Keep getting broken ribbon message on zebra P330i printer


Hello, assuming the supplies are Zebra and there is no discernible damage to the ribbon, it could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. if your printer is still under warranty you can ship back to Zebra (Illinois) to get it repaired. The zebra website has info on how to return printers for service. Hope this helps.

What does a Polaroid p85igc card printer use for a full color ribbon? Zebra p330i ymcko ribbon won't work.


The "i"suffix was introduced in around 2005 to try to stop patent infringements on the printer ribbons. They introduced a chip on the spool that feeds back to the printer. The chip has to be the correct coding for the badge of the printer. Zebra P330i printers are essentially the same as Javelin J330i and Polaroid p85igc but have three different part numbers for their YMCKO ribbon. You can run any monochrome ribbon on them because the mono ribbons have no chip.....not much profit for the brand owners. YMCKO however is not interchangeable. Find a Polaroid dealer for the full colour ribbon.

I have Broken ribbon message on the LCD display. I just changed the ribbon and the clean cartridge. Hellp


It could be that the printhead is damaged or the ribbon sensor needs repair. Call Zebra troubleshooting for help. If it is under warranty you can send the printer back to zebra for repair. Takes about 3-5 days. All the info is on their website. good luck.

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.
