PRODUCT WARRANTY STATEMENT
Printers
All Zebra Card Printers are warranted against defects in material or workmanship for
twelve (12) months from the purchase date.
Proof of purchase or shipment date is required to validate the warranty period. The
warranty becomes void if the equipment is modified, improperly installed or used,
damaged by accident or neglect, or if any parts are improperly installed or replaced by
the user.
Note: Products returned must be packaged in the original or comparable packing and
shipping container. In the event equipment is not so packaged, or if shipping damage
is evident, it will not be accepted for service under warranty. Surface transportation

customers, duties, taxes, and freight from airport to destination. If Zebra determines

Printheads
Since printhead wear is part of normal operation, the original printhead is covered by
a twelve (12) month warranty. Warranty period begins on purchase date.
To qualify for this warranty, the printhead must be returned to the factory or to an
authorized service center. Customers are not required to purchase Zebra supplies
(media and/or ribbons) for warranty qualification. However, if it is determined that the
use of other manufacturer supplies has caused any defect in the printhead for which
a warranty claim is made, the user is responsible for Zebra's labor and material
charges required to repair the defect. The warranty becomes void if the printhead is
physically worn or damaged, also if it is determined that failure to follow the
preventive maintenance schedule listed in the User's Guide has caused defect in the
thermal printhead for which a warranty claim is made.
Spare Parts
All parts, maintenance kits, options kits, and accessories are warranted to be free of
defects in material and workmanship for 90 days (except where otherwise denoted)
from date of purchase. This warranty becomes void if the item is modified, improperly

CLEANING
PROTECT YOUR FACTORY WARRANTY!
The recommended maintenance procedures must
be performed to maintain your factory warranty.
Other than the recommanded cleaning procedures
described in this manual, allow only Zebra
authorised technicians to service the P520 Printer.
NEVER loosen, tighten, adjust, or bend, etc. a part
or cable inside the printer.
NEVER use a high pressure air compressor to
remove particles in the printer.
CLEANING
25
4 • 1 Cleaning System
Your P520 Printer includes a simple cleaning system using the Pre-Satured Cleaning
Cards provided. The regular use of these cards will clean and maintain important parts
of your printer that cannot be reached: including the Print Head, the Lamination
station and Transport Rollers.
CLEAN PRINTER
WHEN TO CLEAN
When the LCD screen reports messages.
HOW TO CLEAN
1 • Leave power on.
Open Cover and release Print Head Bracket to
remove ribbon.
Close Print Head Bracket
Close Cover. Remove cards from Card Feeder.
2 • Insert one Pre-Saturated Cleaning Card
(provided) through slot on the side of the Card
feeder Cover.
3 • Press the right panel button for a few seconds.
The card will feed into printer and carry out the
cleaning process. repeat the process with a new
Cleaning card if necessary.
Note: For a printer cleaning prior to the WHEN TO CLEAN signal, press the Left Panel
button until the LCD screen shows “CLEANING MENU”. Press the right Panel button
to select and one more time again to run the cleaning process (Repeat first steps 1 &
2 above).
Although the CLEAN PRINTER message is
displayed until the cleaning process has been
performed, the printer will continue to operate.
26 CLEANING
4 • 2 Cleaning the Print Head
A cleaning using the cleaning system with cards usually suffices. However, a
separate Print head cleaning using swabs can remove more stubborn deposits when
print anomalies persist. To avoid deposits, only use foam-tipped swabs.
1 • Switch power Off, open cover, raise Print Head
and remove the Ribbon.
2 • Clean Print Head by moving alcohol-moistened
swab tip side-to-side across Print Head elements.
Only use moderate force.
Make sure the elements are dry before switching on.
(To reorder swabs see Appendix C).
Never use a sharp object to scrape deposits from
the print head. Permanent damage will result.
CLEANING
27
4 • 3 Cleaning the Laminator Rollers
A cleaning using the Cleaning System with cards usually suffices, moreover your
printer is equipped with two cleaning rollers situated before the card enter the
Laminator. The upper roller has a coating that collects any loose particles on the
surface of cards. However, a separate Laminator Station cleaning can remove more
stubborn deposits.
To avoid deposits, only use foam-tipped swabs.
Never touch the rollers with fingers.
WHEN TO MAINTAIN

Magnetic Card Stripe Encoder
This section contains information on the additional operations of the P520 Printers
with Magnetic Card Stripe Encoder.
(See Chapter 2 for location.)
INTRODUCTION
Operation and maintenance requirements for the P520 Printer with the optional
magnetic card stripe encoder.
(See Chapter 2 for location.)
The magnetic encoder can be set for either high or low coercivity.
APPENDIX A
43
A • MEDIA LOADING ORIENTATION
The magnetic encoder is a factory installed item
with the read/write head positioned below the card
path, available with HICO encoding or LOCO
encoding.
When loading cards into the Card Cartridge, please
ensure that the magnetic stripe is facing down and
closest to the rear.
Also available are Printer models with the Magnetic
Read/Write head positioned above the card path,
with HICO encoding or LOCO encoding.
When loading cards, please ensure that the
magnetic stripe is facing up and closest to the rear.
Note:
M1 = Stripe Down HICO
M3 = Stripe up HICO
M2 = Stripe Down LOCO
M4 = Stripe up LOCO
approved HICO & LOCO PVC cards are available. (See Appendix C).
ONLY USE cards that comply with ISO 7810 & 7811
standards for magnetic stripe cards. The magnetic
stripe must be flush to the surface of the card to
work properly. Never use cards which have
taped-on magnetic stripes.
44 APPENDIX A
B • MAGNETIC ENCODER CLEANING
There exists two different processes to clean the Magnetic stripe Encoder.
The first process consists of a standard cleaning of the printer. This cleans the most
important parts of the printer; including the print Head, Transport Roller and Magnetic
Stripe Encoder (refer to chapter 4 “Cleaning” for more instructions.)
The second process consist of a cleaning of the Magnetic Encoder using the Menu
Button from the LCD Display.
To access the Magnetic Cleaning Menu proceed as below:
1 • Leave power on.
2 • Remove cards from the card feeder.
3 • Insert one presaturated card (provided) through
slot on the side of the Card Cartridge.
4 • Press the Menu button until the LCD screen
shows CLEANING MENU.
5 • Press the Select button to select.
6 • Press the Menu button again until the LCD screen
shows CLEAN MAG HEAD.
7 • Run this operation by pressing the select button.

Smart Card Contact Station
This section contains information on the additional operations of the P520 Printers
with Smart Card Contact Stations.
(See Chapter 2 for location.)
INTRODUCTION
Your P520 may be equipped with an optional Smart Card contact station.
Smart Cards can store fingerprints, voice recognition patterns, medical records and
other such data.
This printer model basically responds to commands that position the cards to the
contact station, where the printer connects the pins to the contacts connector on the
Smart cards.
An external “encoder/reader” is necessary for programming Smart Cards (ISO 7816).
All other printer operations remain the same as the standard P520 model.
APPENDIX B
47
A • MEDIA LOADING ORIENTATION
Position the cards with the Smart Card Chip at the
top of the card and towards the printer.
B • SMART CARD CONTACT STATION INTERFACE
When a command to the parallel printer interface
sends a card to the Smart Card Contact Station, the
printer connects the Smart Card Contact Station to
the female DB-9 connector on the rear of the printer.
An attached external Smart Card Programmer can
be used to program Smart card chips
