SOURCE: want to solve my problem

Hi Supermarco:

You are experiencing a common problem whit card printers, usually it happens when the printer needs maintenance. Two things might be producing your problem:

It could be the rollers, may be they are dusty and the card slips, that produces the error message you are experiencing. To solve it I recommend you to clean the rollers using a lint free cloth moistened with isopropyl alcohol. You can press the cloth against roller and move it turning the blue knob located at printers left. I also recommend you to run a cleaning card to the printer as specified on users guide (every ribbon replacement), that will also help you.

Another possible cause of your problem is a blocked by dust sensor. Datacard printers sensors rarely broke, when they produce problems is always due to dust. You can buy a compressed air can and spay with air all the interior of printer, just don’t forget to remove the ribbon and cleaner roller first. In that way dust accumulated on sensors will be removed and your printer will work properly again. I recommend you to operate your printer in a dust free environment, this kind of printer is very sensible to dust and debris. If you still have problem don’t hesitate to ask.

Regards

Hey do a power drain by removing all the cables from the rear of the printer and then hold the power button on the printer of 15-20seconds with all the cable out connecting the printer... Then power on the printer if you still see the error code message displayed on the printer display screen do a nozzle clean in the computer, check on if the printer prints the nozzle clean test page perfectly.If not remove the cartridges and clean the nozzle of the cartridges with a clean cloth and be careful so that you do not destroy the copper contacts, clean the same you see on the carrier(where you place on the cartridges). I think this should work.
If not call in technical support.

Dev,

SOURCE: After ribbon change, can't print ID card background colors - only text is printed

The problem could lie in 3 areas:

  1. Printer
  2. Printer driver
  3. Card issuance software
I would start by changing the ribbon with a fresh one. As you probably know, the ribbon spool contains a chip that tell the printer what type of ribbon it is.

Next, I would run the clean up utlity for the printer and get rid of the driver then reload the print driver.

Lastly, I would back up all the projects and databases, uninstall the ID issuance software then delete the BIN directory.

Hope this helps

Warning ribbon in V53.16.7Z


The "ribon in" warning is because you set the printer to print DIRECT THERMAL insted THERMAL TRANSFER. The first mode is for printing directly on the thermal labels, not for using a ribon. The ribon sensor detects that a ribon is pressent and you get this message. You need to change the printing mode to Thermal Transfer from the printer Setup Menu, or from the Print Driver instaled on PC.

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon


PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

I have a DataCard SP25 card printer that won't power up. I switched cords to a known good one and still no power. I suspect it's the power supply in the unit. Is this replacable and what might the cost be?...


There is no power supply in the printer, the power supply is external, nothing user replaceable inside, sounds like you need a new system board, you would be better off trading in for a discount on a new SP25 Plus.
