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.

SOURCE: Magicard Rio ID 2 Card Photo doesn't fit in the pre printed space on the card

Hi There,

Could you scan one of your cards and insert the image in your reply?
Just a dummy card will do. It helps to be able to see the problem.
Which application are you printing the badges from?
The image position is only for very small 'fine tuning' adjustments to the card start and end positions.


Regards,

MC.

SOURCE: File Error (c600)

Hi There,

I'm sure this must be a coincidence.

When the ribbon snapped, did the printer report and 'Out of dye film' error on the PC (via the Status Monitor)?

Did you install the latest version of the driver (V6.02 is compatible with both Rio 1 and Rio 2)?

You can download this here;

http://www.magicardonline.net

Just enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box.

If you are updating to a later driver version, please make sure you choose 'Update driver files' rather than 'Add a printer when give the choice (you will need to restart your PC).

I hope this helps.

Regards,

MC.

SOURCE: cant slide the card hopper in the back of my magicard rio 2

Hi There,

Just go to the following web site;

http://www.magicardonline.net

Enter your printer's serial number in the QuickSearch box.

At the bottom of the search results you fill find a useful video tutorial called 'Loading cards'.

The trick is the hopper has to be offered up to the rear of the printer at a 45 degree angle, then as bottom of the hopper engages, tilt if forward and it will drop down into position.

Like you say, I am assuming that you have the correct hopper, but you will see the correct hopper on the video!

I hope this helps.

Regards,

MC

SOURCE: Card Jam 02:16 Error in Magicard Rio 2E Printer

Check the front rollers all turn when the cleaning button is pressed with the top open.
Check the front pinch rollers on the thin metal shafts are pulled down onto the cards by their springs. Check that the ends of the pinch roller shafts are retained in the plastic cam followers. The card is not being gripped to drive it back to print the Magenta panel.

Flipper error


Hi There,
Exactly which model do you have?
Only the Rio Pro model has a flipper fitted. If it is the Rio Pro, there will also be an error number at the end of the error (18:??).

Kind Regards,

Printing lines on cards


Hello Richard,

Sorry for the delay in replying to your request.
You may have already resolved your issue by now.
The advice below may help others with the same issue though.

In the case of a damaged (scratched) printhead, the lines always run along the cards longest length (landscape), and are always in exactly the same place.
They are normally White, and usually very thin (just a few pixels wide). You would also see the line on the used dye film too by unwinding some film from the take-up spool (at the front of the printer).

Sometimes in the case of older out-of warranty printers, it is easier / cheaper just to avoid that are of the card using the card design. The image can also be rotated 180 degrees in the driver's Printing Preferences. However, if the card design has a solid colour background, or the White line is in the centre of the card, printhead replacement may be the only option.

Depending on which Rio model you have (Rio, Rio 2, Rio2e, or Rio Pro), different printhead assemblies are available as a field replaceable unit. Part numbers are below;

Magicard Rio - FG/M9005-794
Magicard Rio 2 / Rio 2e - FG/M9006-630E
Magicard Rio Pro - FG/3652-0160

All are available from your local Magicard dealer / reseller.

Prevention is better than cure;

  • Replace the sticky cleaning roller in the cleaning cassette as regular as possible.
  • Only use good quality blank PVC card stock (no sharp edges, or burrs)
  • Clean the printer regularly using the appropriate cleaning kit;

    Rio, Rio 2, Rio 2e (Cleaning kit part number: M9005-761)
    Rio Pro - (Cleaning kit part number 3633-0053) *
    Rio Pro - (Sticky roller kit (5 rollers +metal shaft) - 3633-0054)*
    * A sticky cleaning roller is supplied with every new dye film

Kind Regards,

MC.

Magiccard Rio printer is giving error code 24:24


Error code 24:24 means that the sensors need to be replaced. This requires sending the printer back to MagiCard for them to replace the sensors.

I have a Magicard Rio I keep getting the error message card jam error 02:12 yet there is no card jam if i put a card in the back it ejects it correctly help


Hello Colin,
I'm not sure how old your printer is, but I suspect this is caused by a loose connection on the front card sensor (especially if the error occurs when initialising). If there is a loose connection, the card sensor always shows as blocked (hence the error 02:12). I guess this is a Rio 2e and not a Rio 2 model.

Send us an email to;

support@magicard.com

Make sure you quote the printer's serial number in the email.
I can send you some detailed instructions for confirming this is the problem, and also suggestions for repairing the printer.

Regards,

MC.

The printer ribbon keeps breaking and when it does


The printer needs to be cleaned and the cleaning roller (the cylinder thingy that comes wrapped) may need to replaced. You will know if it needs to be replaced if it looks dirty.

The cards are sticking


Hi There,

Im_useless:
0.126 is not a Magicard error number. On a Rio 2 printer, the error number will be displayed on the LCD display. It should look like 02:?? or 04:??, etc.

Are the cards feeding out of the hopper?
How far into the printer have they gone before you get the error?
Are any of the dye film panels printed before the card gets stuck?
Are the cards ejected when you click on 'OK'?

Guest:
The most common reason for the dye film sticking to the cards are if they already have overcoat printed on them (you can not print over overcoat). Also, if you are printing very dense images, try selecting 'ColorSure' mode in the printing preferences, Try reducing the YMC printhead power in printing preferences.
