    My ribbon was printing the varnish as black too. Ran a cleaner card through because I had just cleaned the gummy wheel with alcohol and thought it was a chemical reaction. When I looked at the ribbon I could see that the black panel before the varnish panel had been used by mistake. I had to roll the ribbon so when the optical sensor would view the clear varnish panel it was the real clear panel not the black panel.

Hi I got Evolis Pebble 4 and I have problem with printing the ribbon light is always ON and it does not print with YMCKO, but when I change to black ribbon K it prints. What is the problem.


It sounds like your ribbon setting in the printer-driver is set to the R2011 (or R2211) K ribbon. It should be set to R3011 for the full-color YMCKO ribbon. Check by locating the printer in the Windows Devices & Printers view (Win7: Start Button => Devices and Printers; WinXP: Start Button => Printers and Faxes). Locate your Pebble printer; right-click; select "Printing Preferences". Check your ribbon setting here and match to the ribbon that is loaded. NOTE that you can only make changes to this driver setting if you have Windows Admin rights with your Windows log-in ID. If you don't, have your systems administrator assist you with this by logging in with their ID.

My Evolis Pebble 3 says feeder error but there is not. It won't pick up a card when you try to print but when you press the push button it feeds out a card without printing. It will alos not print a test...


You must take following approach
1. There is a lever at feeder for thickness adjustment . Check it for proper thickness.
2. There is a hanging lever which acts as a card presence detector just where you place cards check if it is stuck and try to clean sensors aside it by blowing air .
3.Check if feeder motor is working by giving Mf;+ command
4.Check for proper ribbon setting.
5. Try downloading firmware which is available as an exe file for different models on Evolis site.
6. diagnostic software is also available on site.
7. You can also do self adjustment to adjust sensors.
