Jam Turnover 91 on Prima 4 & Prima 8

Return to printer solutions | Card jam issue
Written By john.fieldsend

Jam Turnover 91 is seen immediately at power on.

Sometimes after a Card Jam Error the Turnover Module inside the printer can be in a position which cannot be initialised automatically.

  1. Ensure the Prima 4 is powered Off and any cards have been removed.
  2. Locate one of the jog wheels and attach to the end of the Rotation Shaft (left of the cleaning cassette adjacent to a black warning label)
  3. Gently rotate the jog wheel until the point which has the scored line is horizontal and pointing to the right of the machine (viewed from the front)  – the 3 o’clock position.  See the example below.

 ⚠️ Under no circumstances force the rotation unit!

If you feel resistance then a card is jammed inside.

Continuing to force rotation will break the flipper and become an extremely expensive repair.

Rotate the jog dial so its line is pointing to 3 O’Clock 🕒 / to the right & horizontal.

Then power the printer back on.  The error should be resolved and the printer will initialise to ‘Ready’.

If it does not then please check the end of the flipper shaft, is it broken?

This example shows the end of a shaft broken off and inside the jog wheel. The shaft should protrude from the metal housing.


If you also update the printer firmware then the latest version will actually initialise the flipper itself:

What customers say about our support...

4 stars were given because the printer was literally bought a month and a half ago and instead of just swapping it out with a new one, we had to go through the manufacturers warranty process. I will say, from the time I shipped it out to the time I got it back was great. Hardly any time passed.

Thank you so much! The ID printer is working great and we really appreciate the honesty of your technicians! We could have easily been billed for repairs that weren't done, as our printer is no longer under warranty, but you didn\'t charge us at all. The technician superstar told me that it was a simple loose wire, which he reattached, and they shipped it back at no charge. Thank you!

Fixed and working well, would have been easier if could have paid by credit card

In all fairness, as my question was the opposite of what MagiCard would like to achieve I wasn't really expecting a comprehensive answer. Even though I did not get a solution to my question, the answer was well formulated and even offered some alternatives inducing the effect the alternative would have to the print quality.

The issue I had with the printer was resolved with speed and professionalism.
