Question about Polaroid P3500S Id Card Printer System

Open Question

I have a Polaroid P3500S printer that gives me a "Printer Problem 103" message when trying to print. I have shut the printer down and back up but each time it gives me the message.

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.

Normal 0 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

SOURCE: Tec 572 printer gives "no ribbon" error with ribbon installed

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.

SOURCE: What does a Polaroid p85igc card printer use for a

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.

If there is something wrong with the printer, you should get a error message describing the error.

Does the printer have a blinking orange light after you give the print command? Then there is an error in the printer. If you have documents in the print queue, delete them. Remove the printer cable. Shut the printer down, shut the computer down. Reconnect the cable and turn everything on again.
If there is still a problem there might be something wrong with your printer.

If you don't have a blinking light after the print command on the printer, then try changing the printer cable. If not working, try another USB port. If still not working, reinstall the printer.

103 service ITU ERROR


lexmark basically has said that if this error doesnt clear by powering off the machine and powering it back on again then it will need to have a service call. this error means there is a problem with the itu belt assembly.below is what they say. the steps were to pwoer it off and back on again using a grounded wall socket

This error normally requires a service call. However, certain rare occurrences, such as a stray static discharge in the vicinity of the printer or a power fluctuation, can cause a false 103 ITU error message to appear. In these cases, the error is only temporary and can be easily resolved without service. Follow the steps in the table.
Step Action 1
Power the printer off, wait ten seconds, and then power the printer back on.
Did the error message return?
Yes: Continue to step 2
No:
Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly. 2
If possible, connect the printer's power cord directly into a grounded wall outlet. In rare instances, a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can generate false error messages.
Did the error message return?
Yes: Continue to Contacting Lexmark below.
No: Print a test page. If the page prints, the printer is functioning correctly.

Samsung STP-103 Thermal Printer will not print lines correctly


Wow, serial communications still in use. Naturally, both units have to use the exact same protocol N81 for instance, so make certain the sending unit is set to the same, then check the cable to verify that the appropriate pins are connected and or crossed. I believe your symptoms can be caused by using hardware handshake and having pins 6,8,20 (20 only if a 25pin connector) shorted on the printer end. If possible, you can try switching both devices to software handshake.

Dymo 400 labelwriter does not print unless shut down and rebooted


It could be how you have loaded the labels. If you have loaded the labels and there is a small gap between the spindle and the roll, it will print one label and give a error-printer message and stop working until you unplug it for 30 seconds and plug it back in. I would reload the labels from scratch and ensure there is no gap.

HP Printer will not print!


Hi,

It is really my first time to encounter that particular message that the "directory needed is unavailable". Here are the things that i want you to check.

1. Make sure that you logon to your computer using the Administrator previlege. That way, it will allow you to install and uninstall programs or softwares without any warnings.
2. Try to open the controlpanel>>> go the Printers and faxes>>> then make sure that the HP Deskjet F300 series has a check mark and it says READY.
3. If it doesnt say ready, right click the printer icon and it will give you option "USE PRINTER ONLINE". click on that.
4. Now, try printing a document.

Note: if the issue still not resolve, please give me further informations about the operating system, when you tried to print does it stays on the printing queue?

Thank you so much
