P330i does not print in colour

After some reset, printer shows "Unknown ribbon" in it's driver and does not permit to change to color anyhow. After resetting, printer drives ribbon about 1cm and stops. It stops equally/similarly in ANY coloured part of ribbon, even on white.

Hi, did you change the ribbon type at the printer properties? You must choose the black ribbon or monochrome in old drivers.

Double click on printer icon, click on properties.

Enter "CALB" and click execute - this will re-calibrate your ribbon

First try the CALB, if your current firmware does not recognize it, then you will

SOURCE: What does a Polaroid p85igc card printer use for a

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.

SOURCE: 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.

My zebra card printer p330 i donbt recognized the colour ribbo YCMK, only detect the mono ribbon


The P330i is not supposed to work with the YMCK color ribbon, you should use the YMCKO 800015-440 color ribbon.

Just a note, you need to be careful when sending the !SA command, as in some of the earlier firmware versions pre v1.16.11 , it can "double count" the i-series chip contained in the ribbon. So for example if you run the !SA command with a new ribbon with 200 prints remaining, it is possible after 100 prints the chip has counted down and the printer displays "OUT OF RIBBON" even though you have half a ribbon left.
I would use the following procedure to recalibrate the colour sensor only:-
1). Remove ribbon and lock the printhead down
2). Send the command !CSA_0 (Where "_" represents a space) - allow this stage to complete
3). Insert the ribbon and lock the printhead down.
4). Send the command !CSA_1 (Where "_" represents a space) - allow the calibration to complete.
This has works for me 99% of the time where the sensor array is faulty.
