I can't turn on my IDP Smart using the LED button on the front panel

If your IDP Smart doesn’t turn on when you press the LED button on the main panel, check the following:

  1. Check the main power switch on the rear of the printer.
  2. Check the power cable is plugged in.
  3. Check the connection between the power code, adaptor and electric plug socket.
  4. Check the adaptor is connected. You should always use the cables supplied with your printer; if not you may have problems encoding.

If your IDP Smart doesn’t work when it should, check the following:

  1. Ensure the USB cable is connected between the USB ports on the rear of the printer and your PC.
  2. Check the operating state of the printer in your PC’s ‘Devices and Printers’ control panel. This should be ‘online’ or ‘ready’.
  3. If your problem persists, try reinstalling the printer Driver.
How do I resolve a broken ribbon with my IDP Smart card printer?

If your ribbons breaks during a print run, you can simply tape the ribbon back together and move along manually on its spool. If your ribbon is breaking often, there some common reasons it could be happening: there could be dust in your printer, the printing temperature may be too high, or you might be using contaminated cards.


Drivers For Printers

  1. Check the surface of the cards you’re using. Dust and debris attracted by static electricity could be causing your ribbon to break.
  2. Clean your printer using an approved IDP Smart cleaning kit.
  3. Lower the print head power. You can access this via the ‘Card Printer Setup’ menu.
  4. Check the cards are in the correct position. If they are mis-aligned it can cause problems. You can adjust this via the ‘Card Printer Setup’ menu.

Resolving a card jam will depend on the type of printer and where the card has become jammed. Start by checking the card gates between the hoppers and printer ribbon cartridge. Removing the cartridge will help you determine where exactly the card has become stuck. A recurring card jam issue can be resolved by checking the following:

  1. Check you cards: Ensure you’re using the correct-sized cards. IDP Smart printers are designed to use CR80-sized cards.
  2. Ensure the card cartridge is correctly loaded into the input hopper.
  3. Adjust the card thickness control lever depending on the thickness of the card.

If your cards refuse to move from the input hopper into the printer, check the following:

  1. Ensure you aren’t using non-standard cards (CR80 is the only size you should be using in your IDP Smart printer).
  2. Check the card thickness control level is allow cards to move freely.
  3. Check the cards are aligned properly.
  4. Ensure the cards do not have any moisture on them and haven’t picked up static electricity.
My IDP Smart cannot move cards during dual-sided printing

If you’re experiencing cards getting stuck during dual-sided printing, check that the flipper is horizontal with the printer. You can adjust the flipper position automatically using the ‘Auto Rotator Set’ in the ‘Card Printer Setup’ menu.

How do I improve card print quality of my IDP Smart printer?

If your cards print with white lines, it’s a sign the print head pixels have been damaged. Carry out a thorough printer clean first, but if the problem persists you will need to replace the print head.

If your prints are blurry or unstable, check the condition of your printer ribbon and ensure it isn’t wrinkled. Also try adjusting the print head power and cleaning the print head with a print head cleaner.

What encoding methods are IDP Smart printers capable of?

The IDP Smart 31 and 51 comes with two install-able coder options, meaning when you opt for one featuring an encoder you’ll be able to program magnetic-stripe cards (lo-co and hi-co) and contactless cards. The contactless encoder allows MIFARE and ISO 14443 (Type A/B) cards to be printed.

The IDP Smart 70 retransfer printer is available with a range of encoders meaning it can easily encode DesFire, iClass, Magnetic-stripe and MIFARE cards.

If you’re attempting to encode magnetic-stripe cards with your IDP Smart printer and encounter error messages, try the folling:

Drivers IDP Printers

  1. Clean the magnetic head with an IDP cleaning kit
  2. Ensure the settings and drivers are set for magnetic encoding – if they are not then data will not be able to be transmitted onto the card.
  3. Ensure you’re using the correct magnetic-stripe card type (lo-co, hi-co).
  4. Check the card for contamination.

All IDP Smart printers come with an impressive five-year warranty as standard, with the print head being covered for three years.
