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.

Printer head error


Try updating, or reloading, the printers firmware using the "Fargo Workbench application. it can be found (along with the firmware file) in the "Downloads and Drivers" section, in the Support tab on HIDglobal.com.

Print head errors come in a few ways. Some common issues i see are:

"Print head voltage error"
1. The wire harness, from head to pcb, is loose or damaged.
2. Print head is Damaged and needs replacement. Usually you will see dull lines going straight across your final prints, consistently.

"Head life error"
This error is primarily a mechanical failure. the belts that drive the head life motor have worn, and need replacement.

Stuck card in printer


- Open the lid.
-Lift the print head.
-remove the ribbon.

Now, on screen you will have the options to move the rollers back and forth. Take a look into the printer, us you move the rollers, to see if the card is dislodged and moving.

Try to avoid using any time type of adhesive-backed cards, as they cannot take much temperature and become warped. Regular CR-80 pvc cards work best with a DTC style printers.

Need a quick fix


Try the printer maintenance to clear theprinter nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

The printer shows head lift error ...so ..how can I solve this problem ?


I had the same problem with my fargo dtc 550.
I changed the "O" Ring rubber attached to the printhead and that solved the problem. No more head lift errors.

My printer displays ribbon error. but there is ribbon inside


you can change which ribbon type is installed in the printing preferences of the printer driver.
make sure you have the right ribbon type selected.
CYMTKO vs. CYMTO, etc.

There is also a button that will auto detect the ribbon right underneath the pulldown menu.

Error/ Head Lift Error


If you replaced the o-ring on the headlift assembly and that did not solve the problem, most likely you may have a sensor out that controls the position of the head lift.
