Question about Zebra P330i Thermal Card Printer
We have the same problem with our 330i !!
I updated the firmware to V1.16.11 and the printer drivers as well, then I started the cleaning process.
The printer has printed only 337 cards, so it is rather new.
All monocolor printed cards are ok (black, gold,...), but not even one 4color card.
It looks like the sync of the colorribbon does not work properly.
Is there a possibilty to check the sensors or are perhaps informations about the sensors on the cardtest-card ?
Thank you for any help !

You need to ajust the print head. the print head is not calibrate.
1st you have to free the print head on the screw on the left of the print head, then move the screw from the front off the print head (very slowly move 1/4 from the left and test again, then move a litle more and test, if worst, try other way, keep trying, but have to be carfull, because the spring can go out.

Sorry just to confirm, after the cleaning cycle, the display asks you to put the ribbon back in the machine.
This is the YMCKO, i series ribbon.
The system then goes through a "RECALIBRATE" cycle to allign the colours.
When you look at the transfer head you should see a white/orange light and a blue light these are the sensors.
Once the cycle is finished try a TEST CARD, press the front button and then switch on the power and hold for 10 secs.
Hope this helps.

Had the same problem!!
Solution, update the Firmware on the printer from zebra.com to latest version, 1.16, also update printer driver on the PC.
When updated switch off, install the drivers etc and start the cleaning process.
Press front button for 2/3 secs and then use the cleaning cards, 1 is like standard cards and the other is the long card.
After cleaning the printer with "RECALIBRATE" with the multi ribbon.
After this everyting is OK.
I think the constant changing of ribbons etc can put calibration out and the new firmware addresses this.
Hope it helps!!!
