Written By john.fieldsend

The Pronto is able to print an internal Test Card independently of it’s Host Computer.  This function is useful test to check the Printer is working correctly without involving any Computer software or Printer Driver settings.

To print the internal test card

  1. Press the Pronto’s front panel switch twice (quickly in succession).
  2. The colour of the front panel switch should change from green to yellow.
  3. After a short delay (whilst downloading the Test Card image), the Pronto’s Rollers should start to turn.
  4. At this point a Card should be fed into the Printer’s front panel card feed  slot.

The result should be the Test image shown below:

What customers say about our support...

Great Job! I was impressed that the printer problems were fixed quickly and returned to me and packaged properly so it was returned to me in great condition, and nothing broke. Nice job! Thanks for your good service!

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.
