Re: fargo pro l lamination

Check the Image placement setting on your printer. Have the printer on and ready and hit both buttons on the front panel at the same time. Then go to Image placement and set to zero. Hope this helps.

Why my Fargo ProL Printer is not printing my Card Back Clear?

Hi, Its not clear what you are saying.
First, what kind of ribbon are you using for printing, and what kind of lamination ribbon are you using?
what are you trying to print on the front and back?

My fargo Pro L is not laminating and always says lam adjusting

Try Updating the firmware on the printer and the lamination module.

Go to Under the support tab, click drivers & downloads. Populate the drop down menus with make and model.

The most recent software is shown here. Go to the section "Misc." and download Fargo Workbench. This utility enables you to update the printer by automatically pulling the most recent version off the Manufacturers website. Very Useful.

Lamination Problem

You have to go to printer driver, see the general settings and put more darkness(normally it ranges from 0-20, it should be set at 10. Try puting the darkness at 11,12,13, etc until it laminates properly. Don't forget to put back the setting when printing ymcko, or you will burn ribbon.
If the head that prints color is the same that laminates, then you should be cleaning the head after use.

Overlay module not communication with printer

you would need to replace the entire lamination assembly, it would not be worth cost for parts or time, buy same model printer used or trade in your current for discount on a Datacard CP80 Plus Printer for more info

Fargo DTC550

My printer is Fargo DTC550 and I'm using HID 1326 card for printing. I cannot get this equipment to function correctly. I had no
problems installing the software and hooking up the printer to make the ID
cards, but all attempts to print an ID card have failed. Every card I have
tried to make has been unsatisfactory, with colours not printing, very poor
image quality, and the lamination device consistently jamming for every
single card I have tried to make.
Sir, please help me.
