White card keeping jamming in the middle everythine

Hi gigi_airambu,

The card jam, often caused by cards are jamming on or at the flipper table. Here are additional steps that you can apply to resolve this issue.

1. Verify that the Card Feed Roller on the Flipper table is not running backwards. (Note: Having an Encoder installed in the Printer will determine the direction that the Card Feed Roller on the Flipper Table will rotate.)
2. Open the Top Cover and remove any cards that are jammed inside the Printer.
3. Reset power on the Printer to clear any error messages that are on the LCD.
4. Press the MENU button on the LCD.
5. Press the Down Arrow button and select PRINTER SETUP.
6. Scroll through the menu and select ENCODER SETUP.
7. Ensure that the appropriate Encoders settings are set to Installed or None, based on the options that are installed in the Printer.
8. Press the Save button to save any changes that have been changed.

Hope it helps.

I had the Pro-lx drivers installed for a Pro-L and once I found the Pro-L drivers, I deleted the other drivers completely and uninstalled the printer and redid it with the right drivers and it works perfectly.

Printing problem

No mag encoder means you're trying to send encoding data to the printer but the printer isn't configured with an encoder. A mag encoder writes data to the magnetic stripe you see on the back of some cards, like credit cards. Most likely, the printer doesn't have an encoder installed, but if it does, it may be turned off in the printer settings.
If you're sure that it does have an encoder, you can check/change the setting by going into the menu on the printer. Go to Menu -> Setup Printer -> Change Parameter -> Encoder Settings -> Mag. It will say none or installed. Note that this can be changed to one or the other whether or not the encoder is physically installed or not. This only turns it on if the encoder is there.
Hope this helps.
