    Same Problem : Getting ERROR Head Lift on a DTC500-LE -



    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

    I have the same issue and it seems to be the belt that drives the printhead that is worn, this is a very inexpensive part and can be replaced by a tech. Also I have contacted Fargo Tech Support and the problem may also lay in the sensor that is behind the circuit board.

My footup and footdown button is stuck and I keep getting an E1 error on the screen. Do I need to take it in for repair or is there something I can do to fix it? Machine will not sew because of the error...


Turn the machine off first and unplug.

If you've got a manual, look up the page for trouble shooting, this error message may be listed iwth a solution. I'd also suggest that you remove and clean out the bobbin holder. This is the little black piece you put the bobbin into. It has possibly dislodged if you've had a jam up. You will need to unscrew the two screws holding the needle plate down, take out the needle and pressure foot to give yourself some room too. Put the bobbin holder back into position lining up the red markings on the holder and the stopper, your manual should show images of this.

Once its all back together, turn on and hopefully it will reset to normal mode.
If you've done all this and the error message won't stop showing, then yes, you'll need to take it in for a service.

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.

Brother CS-6000 E1 error message - my presser foot is not up!


Did you take this machine apart? If so, then the lever that extends from the thread tension wheel is to the right of the raised presser foot switch plate (inside the sewing machine), keeping the switch from being unpressed.

Take the machine apart again, raise the presser foot, and put the machine back together. This will ensure proper alignment of the plates.

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.

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.

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.
