Fargo drivers for this model does not work with 64 bits.
I recommend you install a virtual host so you can work with 32 bit and so you can use your software.

Error code 03130031-2618

It mean "Vh voltage error" and can be cause of short circuit in the printhead . Sometimes you can get good result with printhead changing, but it is not guarantied because of possible printer electric parts (carriage board, flat cable, motherboard or power supply) damage. For printhead changing, delete paper and use Service mode (hold Paper sourse + Information while switching printer on).

I have a Fargo HDP 600 printer, when I turn it on it states, "Loading printer settings now, please wait... and it stays like that. Is there any way to reset this printer? Now its not recognizing the usb

Physically disconnecting the printer from its power source, then reconnecting will force a hard re-boot of the printer itself. If this fails, try updating the device drivers & firmware (download directly from the HID Global website here: Drivers Downloads ).

If you get no relief here, it may require service. BUT, as this printer is an older model and out of support, your best option may be a replacement unit.

Transfer film not installed Fargo HDP600 cr100

Double check to make sure the film is installed correctly. The printer senses a chip, located on the roll, to determine - Type, Amounts and Physical presence.
If this problem persists, go to Under the Support tab, click Drivers & Downloads. Populate the drop down menus with make and model. From here you can view all the recent software versions.

Scroll to the bottom of the page, under Misc. Download the Fargo Workbench utility. This program enables you to automatically update firmware. It is also a very useful tool in diagnosing issues.

What cause the Error hardware 03130031-2F49 ?

Problem :
For errors 2618, 2F48, 2F49, 2F50, 2F51, 2F52 randomly occurring please follow the steps below.

Solution :
If the printer has the latest firmware installed (Ver. 1.25 or higher - iPF8300 Series), you only need to do the following:

1. Check if the Status Print or Print INF files indicate which print head experienced the error and replace it.
2. If the specific print head failure cannot be determined, replace both print heads.
NOTE: With the previous low level firmware installed, any printhead damage may have spread to other components. Upgrading to the latest firmware version prevents the other components from being damaged in the future. For the initial failures with the low level firmware, you must replace the other components that would have also failed.

Printer head error

Try updating, or reloading, the printers firmware using the "Fargo Workbench application. it can be found (along with the firmware file) in the "Downloads and Drivers" section, in the Support tab on

Print head errors come in a few ways. Some common issues i see are:

"Print head voltage error"
1. The wire harness, from head to pcb, is loose or damaged.
2. Print head is Damaged and needs replacement. Usually you will see dull lines going straight across your final prints, consistently.

"Head life error"
This error is primarily a mechanical failure. the belts that drive the head life motor have worn, and need replacement.
