Question about Zebra P330i Thermal Card Printer
Printing in black mono only. A portion of the required text is not printing clear and sharp black, with some of the letters not printing at all. The majority of the text is very clear and sharp, but approx 10 letters are irregular in the print quality.
Common problem is a dirty card, make sure you handle the cards by the edges and not the surface as oil from finger residue will cause a misprint on that part.
This problem can also be caused by improper or too low of a setting for black intensity, where the printer does not apply sufficient heat to transfer the color onto the card.
Also check for a faulty ribbon, if the ribbon is not properly stored or is more than 3 years old, it can also cause this issue.

That paola give horrible descriptions. Do not go one way then the other with the print head angle screw unless you are positive nothing else will work. He is correct about 1/4 turn increments to adjust the angle, but start with one direction and do 1/4 turn until you have done two complete sets. if not better reset it to it's original position and then try the other directions.

The printhead need calibration,
go to driver, send the comand !SA ( to be use with with color ribbon), if still doing, lose the two screws from front plate(printhead), insert card under the printhead, send comand !D (printhead down) !M (printhead up (do it 4x), with the printhead down (!D) tie the two screws (the front plate is done. (next print test card, send command (IM).
If still have problems, louse the side screw carfuly but secure the big screw at the front of the printhead to don`t coming out with the spring,
move the front big screws 1/4 to one side, and print a testcard, do it from one side to another until have best quality print.
