Question about Fargo Pro LX ID Thermal Card Printer

2 Answers

SmartGuard troubles I have a Pro-LX. I just purchased the SmartGuard Card, and got the SmartGuard software from a Fargo Dealer. When I go to enter the password to encode the card, it does nothing but make the laminator rolls turn. I tried reinstalling the printer driver, and even installed the driver and smartguard on another computer with the same result. I also switched cables and checked the DIp switches to make sure it wasnt in any kind of service mode. Please help, I am stuck.

    I am having the same exact problem, but I have a Pro-L printer..(same as LX, just without the Mag Encoding capabilities) I was just wondering if you had gotten the problem figured out or not?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds as if you may have the wrong software version and or Smartcard mismatch.
There were two versions of smartguard software: version 1.01 for Pro series and version 1.03 for DTC series.
The smart card must also match the printer series, it is printed on the card.
One other thing, some printers have the slot for the smart card but no smart card reader installed.

I am having the same exact problem with the Pro L. Did either one of you figure it out? I just spent $100 on the SmartGuard and now I cannot get it to work

CARD JAM: MAG


SOLUTION = WRONG DRIVER.

I had the Pro-lx drivers installed for a Pro-L and once I found the Pro-L drivers, I deleted the other drivers completely and uninstalled the printer and redid it with the right drivers and it works perfectly.

Fargo Pro-L Not Printing Edge-To-Edge


These direct-to-card printers do not print right to the edge because of the way the print head comes down on the card. There will always be a white boarder on the card especially if your graphics are dense. The only solution to this issue is to re-design your artwork so that the image fades at the edges of the card so the white boarder is not obvious, or purchase a re-transfer printer which will give you true over the edge printing.
