Problem while printing black on the black side

Hi, I have a problem using Fargo Pro-l with Windows XP. When the back side is printing with a YMCKK ribbon it stops and send a message: "printing back side" thus it doesn't work anymore. If I change the ribbon for a YMCKO type it works fine, bu it spends a lot of ribbon.

Check the printer driver and see if YMCKK is selected in the driver.

Windows 7 fargo printer drivers


There are no Windows 7 printer drivers available for the Pro-L printer. You may try using the original Windows XP driver if you know how to setup a virtual XP environment in Windows 7 Pro. This requires you to install the printer and the software that uses it inside the virtual XP.

I have an e machines computer with windows 7 home premium. It has an AMD Athlon II x2 235 e processor w/2.70 GHz. It has 6.0 GB RAM w/5.75 useable. And a 64-bit operating system. Is my computer powerful...


As this is an older printer, the requirements are very low, a Pentium class 166mhz computer with 32mb of RAM is the minimum requirement.

By manufacturers documentation, this printer is not supported by Windows 7. Its best if used with a Windows XP platform.

I have bought a Fargo Pro LD Thermal printer, and have a windows xp desktop and a windows vista laptop. My problem is the driver that came with the printer is for windows 98. How do i go with instaliing...


The support options seem to be limited. However, I found an Win2K and XP driver here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/OTHERS/Fargo-Pro-L-Printer-Driver-202.shtml . Click on the Download button on the left and then click on the download from External Mirror link.

For Vista, you may find the Compatibility option works. Right click on the file you downloaded (after unzipping if it ends in .zip, find an .exe file in this case) and choose Properties. Then click on the Compatibility tab. Set that up to run the program as XP. Then right click on the file again and choose Run as Administrator.

I hope this helps.

I need fargo pro L printer driver for windows 7


According to the Fargo Website:

http://fargosupport.com/archive_results.asp?archPrinter=5&archSubmit.x=42&archSubmit.y=5

The drivers only go as high as windows xp for now. Hopefully since Windows 7 is coming out soon that they will have a driver available for it shortly.

Fargo pro-l using too much ribbon


Hi,
It sounds like you may need to calibrate the ribbon sensor.

Go to the driver icon in your printers folder.

Right click on the Pro-L driver's icon, and select "Printing Preferences".

Click on the "Advanced" button in the lower right corner. A new window will open.

Scroll to the bottom and you will see "Calibrate...". Click on that and a button appears next to it that says "Properties...". Click the "Properites" button and another window appears.

On this screen, you'll see a button on the right side that says "Sensors...". Click on it, and yet another window opens. Almost there.

Here, you'll see two sections. The top section is for calibrating the ribbon sensor, the bottom is for the lamination sensor. Remove the ribbon and close the lid. Click on the "Send" button in the top section to calibrate the ribbon sensor. Your printer should beep twice.

After that, hit cancel on the previous windows to close out everything.

Normally this fixes this kind of problem, but if it doesn't, then there is something broke in the printer, possibly the sensor itself.
