When printing 4x6 recipe cards on the food network the cards print in very small type - it used to print normal size - then one day it started printing smaller ?? thanks alex

Try reseting the printers settings into defaults, its in the menu if your printer has a lcd screen that is.

also if that doesnt solve the problem some settings have been changed on the pc side, would need to figure out what exactly has changed or who has changed them.

Problem printing business cards

I had this problem today and think I've figured it out. Take a sheet of plain paper and two little pieces ot clear 'scotch' tape. Tape the blank sheet behind the business cards at the top/feeder edge and try again. You may need to tweak it a bit more but it stops it from printing so far up.

The cards are sticking

Hi There,

0.126 is not a Magicard error number. On a Rio 2 printer, the error number will be displayed on the LCD display. It should look like 02:?? or 04:??, etc.

Are the cards feeding out of the hopper?
How far into the printer have they gone before you get the error?
Are any of the dye film panels printed before the card gets stuck?
Are the cards ejected when you click on 'OK'?

The most common reason for the dye film sticking to the cards are if they already have overcoat printed on them (you can not print over overcoat). Also, if you are printing very dense images, try selecting 'ColorSure' mode in the printing preferences, Try reducing the YMC printhead power in printing preferences.

White Line on Card

unfortunatly is sounds like a "print head" type of problem. By printhead I am refering to the assembly that causes the film to transfer to the card. I would suggest creating a card project that has a full photo as the background. This will show you if the streak runs the length of the card. It could just be dirt or an obstruction in the card path. Try the alcohol cleaning cards. Dissassembly of this printer is a crap shoot. I have done it once. It is one of those things that is best left to someone good at printers or best by someone experienced on these. if all else fails call a dealer like Datacard and ask about depot repair.
