Question about Magicard Tango 2 Printer

1 Answer

Printer issue...:( When printing IDcards something is going wrong somewhere. The card should look like: Front-Top org.logo, topmid. picture, Bot.mid. IDnumber, Bot. The text "officer", Back-Mid. Officer name. So, the case is: When I printed the first card, everything was included except IDnumber. Then again after some new attempts everything was again included except the text "officer". After about 20-30 attempts or so everything was on, except the officer name on the backside of the card. Wierd and frustrating stuff. What can it be? Help! Best regards A frustrated guy

Hi MaCaTa2,

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.

Regards,

MC.

    That should of course read 'you have a very SMALL paper size with this type of printer'.

How do I open the cover to find the fuse


Why do you want to locate the fuse? If the fuse is bad your whole unit might not work at all. It sounds more like a pull-through-paper issue; something is making the printer stop in mid-feeding because it senses that something is wrong with either what is being printed on, or the feeder mechanics need adjustment.

Hi,

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.

Customber recipt check doesnt print logo after i set it up to do so... only prints logo on full professional format on the printer. i checked the printer settings on the software and checked "print logo"...


What version of RPE are you using and what model receipt printer? Version 11.5 with an Epson thermal receipt printer usually requires a special logo designed for that model printer. Not just any jpg or gif graphics file. Epson will create file for you, but it is pricey, around $200 last I checked. I'm not sure if the latest version 12 has a better fix for this or not. And you are right, there is no print preview on receipt printing. Contact me if you need tech help. sysadmin@ccybernet.com

Print quality with Fargo DTC500 printer


You might go to the print driver settings to change the way the printer prints the card. This can be found in the printing preferences. Go to the device options tab and choose "rotate front 180 degrees". Then print a card. This may fix the problem.

If not, try downloading the latest print driver from www.fargo.com.

No power ON


Here is what HP suggests: Issue The top access door on the printer may be open, or there may be something wrong with the print cartridge. Solution 1. Check to ensure that the top access door is firmly closed. 2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door is opened, the print cradle moves so the yellow arrow on top of the cradle points to a drawing of a cartridge. Each drawing describes a symptom. Here is a link to describe the pictures at the top of your printer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=e&product=304442&rule=36405&docname=bpd09173 It might be that the cover's tab is broken (the tab is what tells the printer that the cover is closed)
