You must restore the driver back to factory defaults:
  1. Close down your badging software.
  2. Navigate to devices and printers.
  3. Right click on the Magicard printer and select:
    • > printing preferences
    • > save tab
    • > click ‘Restore Factory Defaults’ button
  4. Reopen the badging software and try a print.
If you receive the same error go to your printer settings or printer properties within the badging software and go to the Save tab and click ‘restore factory defaults’ again.

Additional notes:

ADMIN account will be needed to reset the factory defaults. Or at least a User Account with permissions higher than just ‘Print’.

What customers say about our support...

This is my 1st interaction w/MagiCard Service, they responded immediately, resolved the issue and stood behind their warranty.

Printer model: Magicard 600

Detailed instructions given to resolve the issue.

Printer model:

Support were very helpful but sadly we didn't manage to get the 2010 machine working again and I had to buy a new machine.

Printer model: Pronto

Overall a good experience. Seemed quite expensive to repair our printer we sent in for RMA considering we could buy a brand new printer (newer model) for half the price..

Printer model: Enduro3e

Customer service were very patient and helpful when communicating with me to figure out the problem with the machine! Thank you for the repair, printer works again! It did take a little longer than expected to get it back, about three weeks instead of two.

Printer model: Enduro3e
