Question about Fargo Persona C30 Thermal Card Printer

It prints the yellow & magenta layers, then skips printing cyan & black (with screeching noise as the ribbon passes) to printing overlay (sometimes skips overlay), but stopped short of ejecting to the output hopper.

Download the latest copy of the C30 firmware, Fargo created a fix by sending more power to the ribbon sensor. After downloading the new firmware, calibrate the ribbon covering the printer the best you can from light.

I have Fargo DTC550 ID printer printing double image can someone help


Hi Arthur -
If by "double-image" you mean that you see multiple identical images printed, but each is slightly offset and appear in yellow, magenta, or cyan ink colors, then it seems like the card is slipping within the printer as it prints. These printers print 1 color at a time, with a total of 5 passes to complete 1 card image - 1 pass each for the yellow, magenta, cyan, black & clear overlay panels of a standard YMCKO ribbon. If the card doesn't get positioned properly for each new panel on the ribbon, then the subsequent image will have a slight offset to it.

The fix could be as simple as a thorough cleaning - with supplies from a Fargo dealer (like us!) that are appropriate for that model. It could also be that the printer requires a ribbon-sensor calibration. To do this, you could need to download the Fargo Workbench Utility program from the HID Global website here: (Drivers Downloads) . There is a "Printer Information" view in this utility, and then a "Test" you can run called "Ribbon Calibration" - do it regardless of the cleaning.

If still not resolved, contact us or your Fargo dealer for further support.

Please I have an oki printer C831 that's printing only yellow and black on any printing am using it to print please help


I would think you have broken ribbons cables to the cyan and magenta LED print heads. As all the heads are the same I suggest you swop the black and cyan print heads around and see if cyan prints and black does not. That will prove is the print heads are ok. If they are then the ribbon cables need replacing or they are dirty at the heads. It could be just a case of unplugging them, clean them, then plug them back in again.

It is shadowing yellow when I print


Most likely it's either a dirty printer, or a printer than needs a calibration performed.

Printing color cards is done with a series of passes using a ribbon that has a series of panels - yellow, magenta, cyan, black, and a clear overlay. The card is positioned; a panel is printed; the card is repositioned; another panel is printed; etc.

This color "ghosting" or "shadowing" happens when the card is not positioned properly at the start of one or more of the ribbon-panel print-cycles. This can occur when the card slips on dirty rollers, or there is a sensor or calibration issue.

Both procedures are documented in the user manual, and at the Datacard web-site. I'd perform the recommended cleaning first. If it's been a long time since cleaning, I'd do it more than once.

If that doesn't correct your issue, the next step would be to perform a calibration.

If it is still not performing properly after the above steps, you may need to have the device serviced, as a sensor could be failed or failing.

I think all you need at this point in time is servicing the card printer, with some of the hardware components like the ribbon been replaced. try get a technician that will help you with this.
