It sounds like your ribbon sensor is dead, and needing replacement.

DTC550 Fargo printer it says out of ribbon with new installed


Check to see if the RFID (green ring) from the old ribbon has come off and is stuck near the reader (located behind the green stem). I've seen that happen. I've also see some bad RFID rings. If that happens they should have a warranty from Fargo.

Fargo HDP5000 HDP5k H5k Ribbon Breaks Error 97


You need to update the printers firmware. 9 times out of 10, this is the issues I see.

Go to HIDglobal.com. Under the support tab, select Drivers & Downloads. From here, populate the drop down menus with Make and Model. Compare the available firmware with the firmware version current installed on the printer.

Hit [Options] then [Next] on the printer to figure out the version.

On this same web page, make sure to download the Fargo Workbench Utility. It gives you the ability to update.

Printer keeps breaking the ribbon


first, try to calibrate the ribbon, if it does not work, you probably have worn out rollers, and possibly a broken o-ring. if you want more info, call us at 310-671-8018, thanks adi

Ribbon mis-cue?


When you have a ribbon mis-cue, first remove the ribbon. Go to the printer driver, printing preferences, calibrate, sensors. Click sesors then send... You should hear 2 beeps. Put you ribbon back in and try to print again.

If you still have the mis-cue it is a belt issue all DTC400's made 2006 and prior have had this belt issue. I don't recommend fixing this yourself, send it to a authorized Fargo repair center. This way it is under warranty.

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.
