Hi Goodan,

Most likely the upper ribbon sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.
It senses the white lines between each color.

One thing you might want to try, is to calibrate the ribbon in the printer drivers.

thanks adi

I have ribbon and am using photoshop,how do i print uv with hdp5000?


To print with UV on a Fargo HDP5000 printer you first need to get a UV color ribbon: YMCFK. The part number is 84061.

After you have your UV ribbon installed you will have to load your cards and tell the printer where you want that special UV logo/design to go. The easiest way to do this is by using Asure ID Solo 7 software. This design software is made by Fargo and has a check mark box on the top where you can either turn the UV design on or turn it off depending on how you plan to create your card. Asure ID Solo 7 costs about $150 but it's very easy to use and makes the print process easier.

There is a second option which involves not using Asure ID and instead creating your UV design through Fargo's "Work Becnch". This process of creating UV designs through work bench is slow and not the most efficient but it is free.

Fargo HDP5000 HDP5k H5k Ribbon Breaks Error 97


You need to update the printers firmware. 9 times out of 10, this is the issues I see.

Go to HIDglobal.com. Under the support tab, select Drivers & Downloads. From here, populate the drop down menus with Make and Model. Compare the available firmware with the firmware version current installed on the printer.

Hit [Options] then [Next] on the printer to figure out the version.

On this same web page, make sure to download the Fargo Workbench Utility. It gives you the ability to update.

My printer displays ribbon error. but there is ribbon inside


you can change which ribbon type is installed in the printing preferences of the printer driver.
make sure you have the right ribbon type selected.
CYMTKO vs. CYMTO, etc.

There is also a button that will auto detect the ribbon right underneath the pulldown menu.

Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken


When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

Problem on card print using Fargo DTC525 Single Side Print model


you can check with fargo, or perhaps your vendor is giving you the bad rep, since they refuse to help you. i would not do business with them again.

if the printer worked before maybe the program needs to be reinstalled.

Fargo DTC550


My printer is Fargo DTC550 and I'm using HID 1326 card for printing. I cannot get this equipment to function correctly. I had no
problems installing the software and hooking up the printer to make the ID
cards, but all attempts to print an ID card have failed. Every card I have
tried to make has been unsatisfactory, with colours not printing, very poor
image quality, and the lamination device consistently jamming for every
single card I have tried to make.
Sir, please help me.
