Right, zebra/eltron made the P310 printer before they started using smart ribbon. They also made the same printer as the J310 for Javelin and the P75 for Polaroid. These all ran on the same ribbon. Then there were the first "i" series machines the Zebra P310i, the Javelin J310i and the Polaroid P75i. These all ran on their own respective i series ymcko ribbons. Now here is my theory.... The new Zebra P330i runs on the same ymcko ribbons as the P310i and the Javelin J330i runs on the same ribbon sas the J310i. Don't know where the model number came from but the Polaroid P85igc is the same as the 330i printers. It therefore stands to reason that it will run on the same ribbons as the older P75i printer.
The YMCKO ribbons for the Zebra are coded 800015-440 for 200 print rolls, 800015-540 for 350 print rolls. I have seen a picture of a ribbon with 800015-540POL on it advertised for the Polaroid but cannot find anyone to sell it. I can find however a few US references to a ribbon for the P75i One is linked below. It may be worth a go if you get desperate. //www.identisource.net/pd_3151.cfm
The other alternative, as the machines are essentially the same, is to change the motherboard so the printer thinks it is a Zebra or Javelin and then buy much more readily available ribbons. We can swap the board for you but as a spare they are just over £400 incl VAT. YMCKO ribbons would only be around £30 for 200 image rolls, thats the genuine stuff not the knocked of rubbish that's around. www.pci-solutions.co.uk I shall investigate to make sure we can't "rebrand" the printer by changing its firmware, but I doubt if it will be that easy.

My zebra card printer p330 i donbt recognized the colour ribbo YCMK, only detect the mono ribbon


The P330i is not supposed to work with the YMCK color ribbon, you should use the YMCKO 800015-440 color ribbon.

Keep getting Out of Ribbon message even i changed ribbon..printer zebra p330i card printer. how can i fix it?


I assume you are using YMCKO ribbon rather that K monochrome. If using YMCKO (or a few other specialist ribbons) the spool has a large blue collar at the back with a paper covered chip. The chip has to be for the P330i rather that the Javelin or Polaroid version of the printer. The code on the YMCKO ribbon should be 800015-440. There are a number of companies selling cheap knocked off ribbons that claim to be compatible. That could be part of the problem. The printer has to communicate back to the windows driver when a ribbon is changed, maybe there is a comms problem, try another USB port or reload the driver.

Keep getting broken ribbon message on zebra P330i printer


Hello, assuming the supplies are Zebra and there is no discernible damage to the ribbon, it could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. if your printer is still under warranty you can ship back to Zebra (Illinois) to get it repaired. The zebra website has info on how to return printers for service. Hope this helps.

What does a Polaroid p85igc card printer use for a full color ribbon? Zebra p330i ymcko ribbon won't work.


The "i"suffix was introduced in around 2005 to try to stop patent infringements on the printer ribbons. They introduced a chip on the spool that feeds back to the printer. The chip has to be the correct coding for the badge of the printer. Zebra P330i printers are essentially the same as Javelin J330i and Polaroid p85igc but have three different part numbers for their YMCKO ribbon. You can run any monochrome ribbon on them because the mono ribbons have no chip.....not much profit for the brand owners. YMCKO however is not interchangeable. Find a Polaroid dealer for the full colour ribbon.

Zebra print jus blue color


The "i" is the newer series. You will run into problem trying to install the P310C with the P310i drivers. More so if you are running Windows Vista. In that case don't even try.

If your computer has excepted the drivers that you have. Go into the Printer Properties; General Tab; Printer prefs; Advanced button in the bottom right corner ;next, and change the Ribbon type. K is for Black 1 color ribbon.
Try YMCKO for Full COlor. If the ribbon is also YMCKO.

Yellow, Magenta, Cyan, Black, Over lay...
