Question about Zebra Eltron P420C Printer

How do I reset the card-print counter on an Eltron P420C

I've replaced the printhead on an Zebra/Eltron P420C ID Card-Printer.
However, I was hoping someone could tell me how to reset the existing `card print count` to zero.

I've selected `Properties` of the printer but don't seem to see the option to do this, even though I have saw the option before on another P420C on a different PC, i.e. via the properties it shows a tab to click to `Reset Card Count`. I can't seem to find it though on my own set-up.

Many Thanks in anticipation!!

There are long axis print voids. Does the print head need to be replaced?

Before replacing your printhead, try cleaning the printer, run the cleaning card and also clean the printhead using the alcohol saturated swab, zebra part number 105909-169. In some cases that will fix your issue, if not your printhead needs to be replaced. If replacing your printhead, please make sure your card stock are clean and don't have sharp edges as that could be the cause for a scratched/burned pixel on the printhead.

The Zebra P420C printer was working fine then it would not print any cards. The unit was cleaned and a print head replaced the unit will still not print any solutions. SN611182 (newer style)

try going into the hardware install/removal wizard or into device manager to remove and reinstall the driver for the unit this may help.

Printer not printer well

Check if ribbon is placed correctly, a lot of cheap pvc cards are low quality and have distortion on the faces, you can check them by seeing reflection light al the sides, if misprinted area have a constant pattern the check rollers, if lines appear in the printed cards in the same place a long the card then the printhead is damaged.

Ribbon Breakage

You can try to lower printhead setting values (color and black), if not resolved then try another ribbon, old ones trend to fail this way.
