Error ribbon jam


Insert the ribbon in the printer, as you would normally. Go to your "devices and drivers" or "printers and faxs" in you start menu. Right click the DTC 550 and select printing preferences.

With the Ribbon installed, printer head lowered, and the top closed. Click the "Device Options" tab. On this screen you will see a button, towards the top, "Auto Ribbon select". Click this, and you will be prompted with a "Ribbon select success".

Now click the "Calibrate" tab at the top of the window. Select "Sensors". Another window will appear. Under Ribbon calibration, click send.

If the problem persists, you may have to update your printers firmware.

Printing to dark and intense. tightened screws now the ribbon keeps breaking and not print properly


It's hard to say based on the fact that your have already tightened screws. Without knowing which ones this may have caused the issue. One of the screws on the printer head is a set screw for the angle. If this is not set correctly it may break the ribbon. Based on your description of the colored ripples this means you are printing too hot and the ribbon is wrinkling under the heat. The only way to adjust this is to alter the printers internal head resistence settings. You would either have to succefully print a test card, or look at the under side of the print head to find the value. This should not be adjusted more then 300 points from the default value on the print head itself. to adjust go to printers and faxes, and right click the printer, go to printer properties (or just properties), device options, tools, properties, in the command line you must put the new value.
!R_XXXX ( where "_" is a space, and the xxxx is the value on the print head. hope this helps.

Good afternoon, I am having problems getting my printer to print a complete card without telling me that the ribbon is broken. The error code I am receiving is PR-01724 The Printer I am using is the...


PR-01724 Ribbon Break

The print ribbon is broken.

Possible Cause 1: The print ribbon has broken or is not installed.

Solution 1: Trim the broken ribbon evenly and tape the cut end of the ribbon to the ribbon on the take-up spool. Install the ribbon cartridge.
NOTE: Do not switch take-up spools when fixing.

Possible Cause 2: If the ribbon type is K or KT, the print ribbon is at the end of the roll.

Solution 2: Load a new roll of monochrome print ribbon.

Technical issues:

•If you have recently changed edge-to-edge settings using the SmartDriver, printing might be too close to the edge of the card. Change edge to edge settings.

•You might have moved the print ribbon while the printer power was off. The next card will print correctly. The printer is designed to allow you to fix problems while the printer power is on.

•If the print ribbon is stuck to the card, the Intensity setting might be so high that printing causes the ribbon to stick to the card. Lower the Intensity or power setting.

•The card design might be longer than the card size. Change the card design to be less than or equal to the card size in the long direction (3.37 inches or 85.60 mm).

•Printing might not be positioned properly on the card. Change the "Left/Right" position of printing (using the SmartDriver) so the printing begins and ends on the card.

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon


PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

Card cutting ribbon on Zebra P330i


On the front of the head. 4 screws are there.
Near the head where the ribbon contacts the card.
Loosen the top 2. Let the metal guard slide down a bit. Tighten the screws. Try a card.
Keep adjusting the guard until you tune it right.

Data card sp35 plus ribbon break


There could be either of the following issues:

1. Check the print head temperature to make sure that it is hot enough to transfer the ribbon to the card.

2. The surface of the PVC card may not be image compatible. Try another brand of card or opt to 60/40 composite cards for testing.
