Error code 24:06 magicard


Hi There,
General Error 24:06 may indicate a problem with the front card sensor (very rare though). Open the lid, remove the dye film. Check that there are no cards jammed near the front of the printer (just before the flipper unit).
Try unplugging the printer. Cancel all print jobs if any are pending.
Plug in the printer. Once initialised, open the lid, run through the cleaning sequence (a Magicard cleaning kit - 3633-0053 is required). If the problem persists even after cleaning, contact your Magicard dealer. The warranty status can be checked here;

Enter the serial number of your printer in the QuickSearch box (Menu -> Info -> Serial Number)

Hope this helps,

I receive the error 'Network Initialization Failed: Permission Denied' when trying to launch Magicard ID software


Hi There,
This error happens when the user does not have read / write access to a file called PDOXUSRS.NET. Earlier versions of Magicard ID (before V3.02) stored this file on the root of the C: drive. If running on Windows Vista, the file cannot be accessed. The last version released (V3.05) in 2008 will run on Vista (32 bit only). If you are running V3.05 already, and still see this error, search for 'PDOXUSRS.NET'. It is probably in 'C:\Program Files\Magicard-ID\data'. Check the permissions on the file you must have read / write access to it. Try logging on as local admin. ensure any users who run Magicard ID have read / write permissions to this file. Magicard ID V3.05 can be found here;

NOTE! You will need to enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box.

Hope this helps,

My magicard alto prints fine except the color quality is not very great. when i use the color ribbon and print black letters with it the letters come out gray and not black and it has a problem making the...


The printer driver must be set to print text with the K resin panel.
If the text is part of a bitmap image and not a true-type font then it will print from the coloured panels and be dark grey.
To create the correct green on the card you need to change the RGB values so it prints correctly but look wrong on the badge design program. Even different printers print the same colour differently.

Magicard alto


Hi There,

Sorry to hear you are having a problem with your Alto printer.

A common fault is where the dye fil cassette runs out, the user is warned, but they keep clicking on 'OK' rather than opening the lid and checking the film.

To resolve this, first of all, upgrade your printer's firmware to the latest version (V4.06).
You can download this by following the link below;

http://www.magicardonline.net

Enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box at the top right of the page.
You will then be offered the latest firmware version to download.

Secondy, there is a small 'O' ring drive belt for the dye film advance motor. This is behind the right-hand side panel. This belt may have either come off the pulleys, or it can sometimes double back on itself and get trapped. In either case you may need to replace it to be on the safe side.

The Magicard part number is RIO/0037/R

If you contact your local Magicard service centre they will normally stick one in the post free of charge.

I hope this information is useful to you.

With Best Regards,

MC.

Printing problem


Hi JuanU,

Which version of Windows are you running now? Vista?
If it is Vista, you will need to use the newer 'UltraDriver' for the Opera printer (V1.3.0.0 Issue 1).
This can be downloaded from Magicard's web site here;

http://www.ultramagicard.com/fileadmin/inc/support_scripts_en/printers/files/ultradriver_opera__v1.3.0.0_iss1.exe

NOTE!!! This driver will ONLY work with the following operating systems: Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and VISTA. If your PC has a different OS from those above DO NOT install this driver!

If you have an 'older' Opera printer which does not have an 'E' in the serial number, you will need to change the 'PRODUCT ID' from 2000 to 2800 before this driver will recognise the printer.

This is quite simple to do. Download and install the Magicard Support Utility Version 3.13 by clicking on this link;

http://www.ultramagicard.com/fileadmin/inc/support_scripts_en/printers/files/msutility_v3.13.exe

Run the Utility, select 'USB' for the comms port.
When the other tabs open up, select 'Statistics / Commands'.
In the 'Quick Command' box type;

PID2800

Then click 'Send'.

Exit the Magicard Support Utility, and unplug the printer's power cable.
Now, install the UltraDriver version 1.3.0.0 Issue 1.
When the driver install has finished, plug the power cable into the printer. The hardware wizard will finish the installation and you will then see the 'Magicard Opera' printer icon in your printers folder.
It should then work fine.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Regards,

MC.
