Evolis dualys3 printer printing with the ribbon sticking to the card


99.9% of the time when the ribbon sticks to the card when printing, it is due to either poor quality cards, or an attempt to print on a card that has already had an overlay (varnish) applied by a printer. Get yourself a pack of fresh, image-grade PVC cards (they're cheap and readily available) and try printing to them. If the ribbon is still sticking, the other 0.1% of the time it is due to over-temp on the print-head. This can be due to either a wrong AC adapter (they're easy to mix with other office equipment), or brightness/contrast settings too high in the driver.

Screen reading wrong ribbon - had the same ribbon in it since the last printing.


My DTC300 printer has the same problem.

The ribbon supply roller is driven by a small motor connected via an O-ring belt. The printer rolls the ribbon back and forth to locate the start of each color panel on the ribbon during printing and ribbon detection. Without the O-ring, the ribbon only moves toward the take-up spool, eventually going slack so that the color detector only sees one color - hence the "wrong ribbon" message. In my printer, the slack ribbon also gets chewed up in the print head.

You can order a whole belt kit (~ $20 + shipping) or you can locate a generic O-ring belt (1.8mm x 26mm).

Cheers

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon


PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken


When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

Broken ribbon message for my zebra card printer


It could mean that the ribbon sensor on the printer is broken. Sounds like you need to send back to zebra for repair. This is free if printer is still under warranty. check out zebra's website for info on how to return printers for service.
