Question about Magicard Tango 2 Printer
It can be frustrating when things aren't going smoothly.
Sounds like you're wasting a lot of dye film and cards too!
What program are you printing the badges from?
You have a very 'paper' size with this type of printer.
If you select 'Magicard Printer Series' as the printer, you will then see a special paper size called 'CR80 Edge To Edge'. This is basically the size of a credit card. (2 1/8 x 3 3/8" (54 x 85.6mm). Check your font sizes are not too big. Any text printed on the back of the card is on page 2 of 2 (on the Tango model, a Rio would feed a second card).
Experiment with an application like MS Word, where you can clearly see the 'pages'.
Create a new word document, straight away go to 'File, Print', select 'Magicard Printer Series' from the printers list, then 'Close' (not 'Print'). Next, go to 'File', 'Page Setup', for the paper size choose 'CR80 Edge to Edge', set all the margins to '0' (this is a 'full bleed' printer.
You will now see a credit card size page to work on. If you fill this page (or insert a page break), you continue onto page 2 (the card back - only available on Tango).
I hope this helps.

According to your
problem, first check that you have put the card in the printer properly. These
types of printers are very sensitive. It can make malfunction for a little
wrong with card or also with bad quality card or printer.
Check the ribbon quality
or change the ribbons which are not in good condition. Re prepare those ribbons
in cartridge and then install the cartridge properly. Check the
printer settings also and reboot it. Try this it will help you.
