Question about Datacard SP35 Printer
We are printing ID cards (Red Green or Yellow in colour) on the printer but get constant ribbon breaks. It has got to the point where the printer will only correctly print 1 in 50 cards.
The ribbon looks as if it is stuck to the card when it breaks.
Three things to try,
1. Try actually flipping the cards over, on side may have a burr that is cutting the ribbon.
2. Try changing the position of print on the card. Most manufactors call this EC
3. Try calibrating the ribbon sensor from with in the driver or the datcard utility that is on the bottom right of you windows desktop

There could be either of the following issues:
1. Check the print head temperature to make sure that it is hot enough to transfer the ribbon to the card.
2. The surface of the PVC card may not be image compatible. Try another brand of card or opt to 60/40 composite cards for testing.
