Question about Polaroid P3500S Id Card Printer System
What could be some possible things to look for that would be causing this? It has a good ribbon in it as it worked on another printer.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

You have to set the ribbon type to be "non-transmissive" for black transfer film.
To set the ribbon type, turn the printer off. Then press and hold the "feed" and "pause" buttons while turning on the power. The printer will now be in diagnostic mode - you can page through the menus until it says "ribbon type"
Pick the correct type and press the "pause" key to save the value. Then turn off the printer and turn it on again normally. The ribbon error goes away.

The "i"suffix was introduced in around 2005 to try to stop patent infringements on the printer ribbons. They introduced a chip on the spool that feeds back to the printer. The chip has to be the correct coding for the badge of the printer. Zebra P330i printers are essentially the same as Javelin J330i and Polaroid p85igc but have three different part numbers for their YMCKO ribbon. You can run any monochrome ribbon on them because the mono ribbons have no chip.....not much profit for the brand owners. YMCKO however is not interchangeable. Find a Polaroid dealer for the full colour ribbon.
