Welcome to FixYa!

Solution to loud noises:


Check the ribbon cartridge and ensure that the cleaning roller is properly installed and rolls smoothly

inside the cartridge. Then check the plate underneath the cleaning roller and verify the 4 pins are seated properly.


Solutions to blurry prints:



1. Make sure the printer has the latest firmware via the web. >> Click Here << to download the latest firmware (Look for "Persona C30e Firmware_Windows/Linux 4.3.0.1 "). The firmware upgrade file is packed in zip file. Extract it to a directory of your choice.

>> Click Here << for an instruction on how to upgrade the firmware. When being prompted to locate the "upgrade file", browse to where you extracted the firmware upgrade file.


2. Calibrate the ribbon sensor. If you have completed these 2 steps and the printer still prints out faded or light cards,



3. Try a new power supply. Part# (E000480). Note: Please verify the proper power supply is being used.


Thank you for using FixYa!

Have tried to tape, wind, etc. as shown in the instruction manual but it repeatedly breaks. Interestingly enough when it does break it is always on the yellow panel which is entirely imprinted on the...


Ribbon breaks on those older models are usually traced back to only a couple of things.

1. The ribbon-type may be set incorrectly in the printer driver. The C30 and C30e color ribbon type if doing single- or dual-side printing in full-color is #044200 - YMCKO; the ribbon type if doing dual-side printing with full-color front and black-only back is #044210 - YMCKOK. Open the driver, then "Printing Preferences", select the "Device Options" tab and verify that the ribbon type setting matches what you're using. Note that you can only make a change to the setting if you have sufficient (Admin) Windows privileges.

2. There is a mechanical issue with the printer, where an o-ring is broken, or the head-lift motor has gone out. Either is very bad, as the printer has long been out of production and parts are no longer available. (But you can contact us for a replacement - new or refurbished!)

Good luck!

I am having the same problem. Hopefully changing the ribbon will resolve this. I am going to try it.

Try substituting a new imaging drum. The problem may be a bad bearing.

I doubt it. We have a Persona C11 that stopped printing the cards and we sent it for service. The authorized service returned the printer with a note indicating that the printer has been discontinued and support is no longer available starting in December of 2007. So, I really doubt they will be releasing drivers for Vista,

My printer prints blurry lines!


Try this: make a copy and stop it when it reaches the cartridge ( has to have image on paper) take out paper and look at it, does it have blurry copies? if yes, then the problem is with the cartidge or (worse) the laser printing device ( expensive).
Take a chance and replace the cartridge.  if still there you need to replace the laser unit.

If it does not have blurry copies when you stop it at the drum then check the fuser unit( doubt it ) to see it it has any writing or toner on it.

Good Luck.
