2 possible causes:
1 - the ink has started to dry in the cartridges, it has become too thick for the heads to project on the paper correctly and in the end it has clogged the printing heads - replace the cartridges and run several deep cleaning cycles.
2 - hardware fault: either the data cable (the ribbon that connects the print head carrier to the mainboard) has been damaged and it will have to be replaced at a repair shop or the processor of the printer has just failed - this is terminal since it will be cheaper to buy a new one than to replace the mainboard.
To make a pretty exact diagnose of the situation take out the cartridges and see if the printer recognizes the situation when you try to print something. If you get an error message then it's the data cable, if the printer is unresponsive then it's the processor - time for a new one.
each cartridge has its unique serial number,
printer remembers him,
is absent sensor of the ink level determination in you cartridge. You can to print, but message will say to you "EMPTY CARTRIGE".
this warning function can be disconnected by you in printing driver.
If you bathe new cartridge, that level will show full.
If afterwards put(deliver) old , that he will show that empty.
Printer can have a memory about two or three last cartridges.

When you have a ribbon mis-cue, first remove the ribbon. Go to the printer driver, printing preferences, calibrate, sensors. Click sesors then send... You should hear 2 beeps. Put you ribbon back in and try to print again.
If you still have the mis-cue it is a belt issue all DTC400's made 2006 and prior have had this belt issue. I don't recommend fixing this yourself, send it to a authorized Fargo repair center. This way it is under warranty.
shut down the printer and computer both then on only the pc and cancel allthe pending documents from it then again shut down your pc check allthe wires connected properly then on both printer and pc.it will work properly.feel free for further assistance.
