ZXP1 and ZXP3 Card Printers

Details

The ZXP Card Printer using color ribbon requires the color panels be synchronized (properly positioned) before printing to correctly print color cards. This synchronization can be disabled if a user assures the ribbon is properly positioned when the printer is powered on. 

Important: If the auto synchronization is disabled the cover must not be opened when power is off. Opening the cover will cause the ribbon to relax and misalign the color panels causing misprinted cards.

To disable auto ribbon synchronization

1) Send the command below in driver (Printer Properties->Device Settings->Tools->Command to send to printer):

+RIBSAV 1

2) Send the SDATA command followed by the step 1.

3) Restart the printer.

Note: If customer wants to recover the ribbon synchronization process, just follow the same steps above but instead the command +RIBSAV 1 by +RIBSAV 0.
