Question about Fargo Persona C11 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Color Print quality has declined

When I compare badges I printed a couple of years ago to ones I print today there is a marked difference in the vividness of the colors. I have been dilligent in cleaning. Fargo Support had me calibrate the sensors but that made no difference. . Thanks for any help you can offer.

    My brother MFC 665CW printer shows a 4F error and unable to clean. How do I get to the head to clean it?


    Do the following to clean the print head:


    1. Press INK key on the control panel.


    2. Press the DOWN arrow key until CLEANING appears on the LCD.


    3. Press OK.


    4. Press the DOWN arrow key to select BLACK, COLOR or ALL depending on what you want to clean.


    5. Press OK.


    The machine will clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the machine will go back to Ready automatically. If you are experiencing a print quality issue, we recommend you repeat the print head cleaning for each color showing an issue at least five (4) times.


    If you are experiencing a print quality issue and want to see if the cleanings are improving the print quality, print a Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS) after the first cleaning and then print another PQCS after repeating the print head cleaning steps at least three (3) more times (4 total cleanings). You can then compare the two Print Quality Check Sheets.


    Do the following to print a Print Quality Check Sheet:


    1. Press INK key on the control panel. TEST PRINT will appear on the LCD.


    2. Press OK. PRINT QUALITY will appear on the LCD.


    3. Press OK.


    4. Press COLOR START.


    NOTE: The machine will generate the Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS). On the PQCS each of the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of 96 individual blocks. The colors should appear (from left to right): Black - Yellow - Cyan - Magenta. Cyan is the light blue color and Magenta is the pinkish color.

    Print head is not printing seems to be clogged from non-use. Have tried test printing through several new cartridges and still not working. Can the old - dryed ink be cleaned off of the print heads?


    Hi, below is from the brother website for your model. Very common for the ink heads to become clogged /dry out. You probably have done this but here it is anyway. your print head is part of the machine, so it will need to be disassembled to clean it, That can be very difficult. Try the following anyway, it might help you. also, you could try using a Q-Tip wet with vinegar water to get under to the bottom of the print heads, if you can get the head to move off its dock and then unplug it when its moved over. anyway here is the Brother link info (without pictures-see the link above if you need the pictures)

    The printer driver must be set to print text with the K resin panel.
    If the text is part of a bitmap image and not a true-type font then it will print from the coloured panels and be dark grey.
    To create the correct green on the card you need to change the RGB values so it prints correctly but look wrong on the badge design program. Even different printers print the same colour differently.

    Color cartridge does not work - color faded. Just replaced AGAIN today - same problem


    Hi,
    Remove it,replace it couple of times.

    Run a nozzle and printhead cleaner check,
    from your printer's properties, maintainance.

    align too, just to be sure your setup correctly.

    Check your printer settings for quality of the print.
    there are various choices there for you.


    Should be good then

    Color laser printers. Costs for toner vs. initial costs for ptr


    Have you thought about having your printer cartridges refilled? There are huge savings to be made in doing so and the quality can be just as good as the original cartridges (depending upon the refiller). Another option would be for you to purchase an older color laser printer such as the HP Color Laserjet 4500 or 4550. I use one myself and couldnt be happier with it. And as its an older printer, you can get the cartridges relatively cheap.

    Epsom cx3200 off brand ink refill


    Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. You may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.

    When you don't turn on your EPSON CX3200 for a long time, the print quality can decline. It's a good idea to turn on your EPSON CX3200 at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

    1. Make sure the EPSON CX3200 is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off.
    If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.
    2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Cleaning and then press the Copy button.
    Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON CX3200 makes some noise and the Operate light flashes. Never turn off the EPSON CX3200 while the Operate light is flashing, unless the EPSON CX3200 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes. setViewedFAQCookie(14082, 31605);

    HP Color Laserjet 3500 Problem


    If you are sure the diagnostics show the colours correctly, one thing I would look at is to see if it had a colour profile set up for it.Don't know whether this printer normally has, if it has not I would suggest reinstalling the driver. To check - Start/Printers & Faxes/ Rt click on printer then properties, look under Colour management tab. Pete
