My solution was the cleaning roller. Zebra said the roller was not getting enough pressure to pull the card through. I pressed the metal clips down to give more tension and the printer works great now.

Can I use zebra exp series 3 ribbon on a zebra zxp series 1?

No you cannot use a ZXP Series 3 ribbon on a ZXP Series 1, or vice-versa. All Zebra ribbons contain RFID tags with ribbon specifications, including the ribbon type (part-number). The printer validates the ribbon as matching the printer you're using, and allows or disallows use, depending on if it is specified for the model or not.

Print head errors come in a few ways. Some common issues i see are:

"Print head voltage error"
1. The wire harness, from head to pcb, is loose or damaged.
2. Print head is Damaged and needs replacement. Usually you will see dull lines going straight across your final prints, consistently.

"Head life error"
This error is primarily a mechanical failure. the belts that drive the head life motor have worn, and need replacement.

Mechanical error

Mechanical error can be a lot of things, you have to take the printer to a tech so he can open and see if orange ribbon its lose and need to be replaced.

Zebra P240i will not print test card or feed cards

i need the cardfive driver for my zebra P420i card printer.

Zebra P330i

we have the same problem with our 330i !!

I updated the firmware to V1.16.11 and the printer drivers as well, then I started the cleaning process.
The printer has printed only 337 cards, so it is rather new.

All monocolor printed cards are ok (black, gold,...), but not even one 4color card.
It looks like the sync of the colorribbon does not work properly.
Is there a possibilty to check the sensors or are perhaps informations about the sensors on the cardtest-card ?

Thank you for any help !
