Question about Fargo Persona M11 Thermal Printer

Lines in the picture

When using my ID printer, there is a line that goes through the person's picture. Everything else prints fine. I've changed the ribbon so I know that is not the problem.

If cleaning did not work, the print head would need to be replaced. This is a simple replacement for people that are some what technical. However, it is a costly item. I believe the part number is: 81510 Check with whom ever you purchase it from. Another option, is to try and change your layout. Is the line is only in one area, move your template accordingly. The lines in the print head are caused by blown pixels. The print head is extreamly fragile. The printer needs to be kept clean, and the cards not being used need to be kept in a clean enviorment, and the printhead/printer should be cleaned if the ribbon breaks. Hope this helps.

It sounds like the the print head itself maybe dirty. Try taking out the ribbon and cleaning the print head.

My Zebra P110i is not printing it's cards correctly, When I print a card, there is always a 2mm blank line gap on the end of the card where the printer has not printed on it. I've cleaned the printer,...


The Zebra P110i printer is an Edge-To-Edge card printer, which means it will print on the card closest to the edge as possible, however there will still be a slight line. Although a 2mm line is too big, should be no more than 1mm, there will still always be a line.

There are some advanced EC (end card) settings that could be adjusted but if the print goes too close to the edge, the ribbon will get cut.

Hello,
You have a physically damaged print-head.
The print head is in the cover and us user replaceable by pressing the lever inside the cover.
Print heads are considered consumables and need to replaced at maintenance. You can contact Datacard at there web site and they can have someone come out and change for, as well as service the printer. Or you can buy one online about $550 and change your self.

Not printing properly


Print heads need to be cleaned cause they are clogged which is why even replacing the cartridges is not fixing the problem.

If the printhead can't be cleaned then a new printer is in order.

I'd say it's probably the printer driver. Uninstal and reinstal it or update it. Printer drivers are a comon cause of printing faults.
