General Description
1.1 Description
This manual contains service information for Zebra P110i, P110m, and P120i Plastic Card
Printers, manufactured by Zebra Technologies Corporation, Camarillo, California.
The only difference between these models is as follows:
•
The P110i supports single-sided, full-color or monochrome printing.
•
The P110m supports single-sided, monochrome printing only.
•
The P120i supports single- or dual-sided, full-color or monochrome printing.
In this manual, references that are specific to a particular model will be identified as such;
references that apply to all three models will use the term “the printer.”
The printers provides full color dye sublimation or monochrome thermal transfer printing on
standard 2.125 inch by 3.375 inch (54 mm by 86 mm), PVC or PVC Composite plastic cards.
The integrated card feeder and flipper (P120i only) minimizes printer size while
maximizing performance.
Load-N-Go™ ribbon cartridges are used with an integrated card cleaning roller for easy
ribbon changing or replacement.
A variety of options (some of which can be factory-installed or field-installed as upgrades) are
available, making the printers configurable for varied application environments:
•
Magnetic stripe encoder option
•
CardSenseTM single-card feed option
•
USB or USB and Ethernet interface option
Its auto-switching 100 ~ 240 Volts AC, 50 ~ 60 Hz external power supply uses interchangeable
power cords for maximum flexibility.

2.9 Loading Cards
To help you load, print, and collect cards, the printer has a Card Feeder and a Card
Output Hopper.
Card Feeder
The card feeder is used for loading cards, it can hold up to 100 cards of 30 mils thickness. The
card feeder is located under the card feeder cover of the printer.
Caution • DO NOT bend cards or touch print surfaces as this can reduce print quality.
Note • The surface of the cards must remain clean and dust free. Always store cards in
an enclosed container. Ideally, use cards as soon as possible. If cards stick together,
carefully fan or shuffle them.
Note • For Cards with magnetic stripe, refer to Section for loading instructions.
Load cards into card feeder as follows:
Step 1.
Open card feeder cover.
Step 2.
Slide card guide all the way to the right until it locks in place with an audible click.

Step 3.
Remove cellophane wrapper from card stack.
Note • Static charges and edge burrs from the card die-cutting process can render individual
cards stuck together with significant adhesion force. These cards must be physically
separated from each other before inserting into the feeder; if not separated, feeding or
printing problems may occur.
Step 4.
Holding the card deck by the sides, hold it vertically against a flat surface such as a
desktop. If the deck is too thick for your hand to hold it comfortably, use about half
a deck at a time.
Step 5.
Push the stack back and forth to an angle of about 45° from vertical, so as to
separate all of the cards.
Step 6.
Restore the card stack to its original squared-off condition, and place the cards in
the input hopper.

Cards with Magnetic Stripe
Caution • 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.
The magnetic encoder is a factory-installed item with the read/write head positioned below or
above the card path. Note that the magnetic encoder is settable via the driver for HiCo or
LoCo encoding.
When loading cards with magnetic stripes into the card feeder, please ensure that the magnetic
stripe is facing the left side of the printer, and closest to the bottom edge of the card feeder, as
shown below.

3.2 Card Printing Basics
This section provides an overview description of how images are printed on plastic cards.
Printhead
The Printhead Assembly mounts in the Printhead Bracket, which holds the Printhead at a right
angle to the card’s long surface.
The Printhead is a thin-film device that consists of a row of individually addressable heating
elements. Each heating element is approximately 0.0033 inch (0.08 mm) wide, giving a print
resolution of 300 dots per inch.
There are a total of 672 heating elements. Since the width of the plastic card is 2.125 inches
(54 mm), 638 elements provide full-width coverage.
The “extra” 34 elements (17 on either side of the card’s nominal width) are present to support
programmable image centering and full bleed imaging even if a card is slightly oversize.
52

980584-001 Rev. A
Printing Technologies and Ribbons
There are two types of printing technology used in the P110i and P120i Printers: Dye
Sublimation and Thermal Transfer. The technology to use is determined by the type of dye or
ink on the ribbon.
Monochrome Ribbons have a single color ink on the length of the ribbon. the Printer is
programmed to use Thermal Transfer printing for monochrome ribbons. (The P110m Printer
uses only thermal-transfer printing.)
Multi-Panel Ribbons have a repeating sequence of panels of different dye. i Series True
ColoursTM Multi-Panel Ribbons have an smart chip built into the supply spool; the smart chip
identifies the ribbon type and panel count. (Note that the lack of a smart chip will be
interpreted by the Printer as being a Monochrome Ribbon.) Printing with a Multi-Panel
Ribbon requires multiple passes of the card under the Printhead, once per panel.

Contacts
Smart Chip
Contact Pad
For dual-sided printing, a typical situation would be to print a full-color graphic (such as a
person’s picture) along with black text and/or bar-coding on the front, and black text and/or
bar-coding on the rear. In this case, a “YMCKOK” Multi-Panel Ribbon would typically
be used.

Other ribbons are available for the Printer; see the Supplies List on the Driver and
Documentation CD that came with your printer, or go to the Zebra Card Printer Solutions
website at http://www.zebracard.com.
Additionally, the driver software allows the user to specify which ribbon panels are printed on
either side of the card.
The ribbon synchronizes to its “starting” position whenever the Lid is opened and then closed.
For a YMCKOK ribbon, the starting position is with the leading edge of a Yellow Panel at the
Printhead location.

Dye Sublimation Printing (P110i and P120i only)
In Dye Sublimation Printing, each Printhead heating element is applied voltage at one of a
number of pulse widths. A wider pulse results in the element getting hotter, which converts
more of the dye (at that pixel location) to a gas and diffuses it into the surface of the card (a
wider pulse gives more intense color at that pixel). This is repeated for each of the dye panels
(i.e., Yellow, Magenta, and Cyan), to result in full-color images.

Thermal Transfer Printing (P110i, P110m, and P120i)
In Thermal Transfer, voltage is either applied or not applied to each Printhead printing
element. If voltage is applied, the ink at that location is transferred to the surface of the card.
Each pixel is either printed (i.e., the ink transferred to the card) or not; there are no
intermediate levels.
Thermal Transfer printing with a resin ribbon is used for printing bar codes, since contrast
between the light and dark areas is the highest and the edges are the sharpest.

3.4 Card Movement During Printing
Step 1. The card is fed from the Card Input Hopper and loaded into the Card Flipper where it
is rotated into the print position.

Step 2. The card is moved into the Print Engine, passing the Cleaning Roller; this cleans dust
or dirt particles from the upper card surface.
Step 3. If the Printer includes an optional Magnetic Stripe Encoder, the card is moved to the
Magnetic Stripe Encoder, and the stripe is encoded.
After the card is encoded, it is checked to verify that the magnetic stripe was
properly encoded.
If encoding fails, the card is ejected into the Card Output Hopper. This is done to
avoid wasting time and ribbon panels on a defective card.
If the encoding is successful, the card is moved into the pre-print position, just before
the Printhead.
58
Zebra P110i / P110m / P120i Card Printers Service Manual
980584-001 Rev. A
Step 4. The card is printed.
Dye-Sublimation Printing (P110i and P120i only)
The leading edge of the card is moved under the Printhead (over the Platen Roller),
and the Printhead is lowered. Lowering the Printhead reduces the space between the
Printhead, the ribbon, and the card, which produces sharper images.
The last time the Lid was opened and closed, the ribbon was automatically
synchronized, bringing the leading edge of the yellow ribbon panel (for a YMCKO or
YMCKOK ribbon) under the Print Head.
As the card and ribbon move along, each element of the Printhead receives a pulse of
variable width; a wider pulse results in a hotter element which melts a larger amount
of yellow dye onto that particular spot on the card.
After this yellow pass is completed, the Printhead is raised, the card is moved back,
and printing continues with the Magenta ribbon panel, then the Cyan panel, then the
Black panel if present, then an Overlay panel.
Thermal-Transfer Printing (P110i, P110m, and P120i)
If using a monochrome ribbon (used when printing a bar code on a card), the card
makes a single pass under the Printhead. The Printhead elements are energized to
either on or off. The on level actually transfers the spot of resin under the Printhead
element to the card. This results in the sharpest possible images; for bar codes you
want the sharpest edges and highest contrast between dark and un-printed areas.
Step 5. For dual-sided printing, the card is now moved back to the Card Flipper where the
card is turned over (rotated into the 180 position).
The card is moved into the Print Engine, passing the Cleaning Roller; this cleans dust
or dirt particles from the “back” of the card.
The card is printed (same as Step 4).
Step 6. When printing is completed, the card is moved to the Card Exit, where it falls into the
Output Hopper.

Troubleshooting
4.1 Introduction
The objective of troubleshooting is to relate a problem to an associated assembly or system
function, in order to most efficiently isolate and repair the problem. Typically this involves
determining the failure symptom and then checking one or more possible causes of the failure.
Only a symptom-related list of possibilities appears. In general, for a given failure symptom
one or more possible causes are listed, with suggested corrective action to take. These causes
should be checked and corrective actions taken in the order given; they are listed in order of
likelihood and complexity.
When the suggestions presented fail to lead to a repair, a CPU Board replacement, if not
prescribed, should nevertheless be tried. A check for broken or disconnected cables and any
loss of power should also take place along with checks for obvious mechanical damage.
Zebra Card Printer solutions offers Technical Support and factory repair as options.

indicates all the hardware is functioning properly and the Ethernet Adapter has
detected the presence of the network. It does not mean the Ethernet Adapter has an IP
address or is attached to a printer queue.
Step 2. If the LED is rapidly flashing GREEN (9 times/sec), the Ethernet Adapter has not
detected the presence of a network cable. To solve the problem:
•
Verify that the network cable is appropriate and has an RJ-45 connector.
•
Turn the printer power OFF (O). Remove the network cable from the Ethernet
Adapter. Plug the network cable back in until you hear a positive click. Check the
other end of the cable in the same manner. Turn the printer power on; if the
Ethernet Adapter still does not detect a cable, continue.
•
Connect the Ethernet Adapter to a known good network. If the Adapter is still
unable to detect the network cable, contact Technical Support for assistance.
Important • Cables with a rating higher than CAT-6 have not been tested.

Step 3. If the LED is slowly flashing GREEN (1 time/sec), the Ethernet Adapter is trying to
print a job. If the job does not print, check the following:
•
Verify that the printer has media and ribbon. If the printer is showing any errors, it
is unlikely that the Ethernet Adapter can send data to the printer. The LED
continues to blink until the printer malfunction is resolved or until the printer is
turned OFF (O).
•
A flashing RED indicates the Power-On Self Test (POST) is in progress.
Step 4. If the LED is solid RED for more than 30 seconds, the Ethernet Adapter has failed the
POST. A failed POST can be caused by any of the following:
•
The printer attached to the Ethernet Adapter device is malfunctioning. Turn the
printer power off, wait 10 seconds, then turn the printer back ON ( | ).
•
If the Ethernet Adapter still fails the POST, the Ethernet Adapter has a hardware
problem that can be fixed only by replacing or returning the unit. Contact
Technical Support for repair or replacement information.
Step 5. If the LED is alternately flashing RED and GREEN for longer than 2 minutes, the
Ethernet Adapter is in firmware-download mode. This means it is waiting for new
firmware data to be sent before it continues normal functioning. Do the following:
72
•
If the Ethernet Adapter was purposely put into firmware-download mode, finish
the download with the proper update utility.
•
Contact the Zebra web site at http://www.zebracard.com, and click on the Drivers
& Downloads tab.
•
Contact Technical Support for help recovering this unit.

Network Status/Activity Indicator
A bi-color Status/Activity LED indicates network speed, established link, and network activity.
Network Status / Activity Indicator
Step 1. If the LED is off, no link was established.
Step 2. If the LED is solid GREEN, a 100Base link is established.
Step 3. If the LED is flashing GREEN, a 100Base link is established and network activity has
been detected.
Step 4. If the LED is solid ORANGE, a 10Base link is established.
Step 5. If the LED is flashing ORANGE, a 10Base link was established and network activity
has been detected.
Network activity detected by this LED does not mean the activity is data for the print server.
The activity is all activity on the network seen on the Ethernet Adapter.

Replacement Procedures
5.1
Introduction
The following sections describe removing both major assemblies and, where applicable,
subassemblies and/or components that are considered replaceable.
In general, only removal directions are presented; unless otherwise noted, replacement would
be performed by reversing the removal steps. Replacement instructions for some items are not
presented; removal and replacement of these items are considered too obvious to warrant a
detailed description.
Spares Kits are listed in Appendix E.
Electric Shock Caution • Before performing any of the procedures in this section, set
the printer power to OFF (O) and disconnect the power cord.
still
Electrostatic Discharge Caution • All replacement procedures must be performed at a
static-free work station, an anti-static wrist strap must be worn and properly terminated, or
other appropriate protection must be used.
Caution • Before beginning any of the procedures that follow, read completely through
the procedure. If you do not have the specified tools, or if any step(s) seem beyond your
skill or experience level, do not attempt the procedure. You may cause additional damage
to the printer.
Note • Some of the photographs in this section may show additional parts removed in
addition to removals for the process being described.
980584-001 Rev. A
Zebra P110i / P110m / P120i Card Printers Service Manual
75
Important • If you are going to replace the Main PCBA, Print a Test Card (refer to
Section 2.10). You will need the Head Resistance, the X and Y Offsets, and the End of Text
value to update the firmware on the replacement Main PCBA.
If for any reason you are unable to print the Test Card, contact Zebra Technical Support to
obtain the above values.
5.2
Required Tools
This section lists the tools required for the replacement procedures described in this section.
Naturally, not all tools are required for a particular procedure; specific tools are called out in
each step as appropriate.
Important • When removing any of the nylon or plastic pulleys or gears, the use of a gear
puller is strongly recommended. If a gear puller is not available, use pliers and/or a flat-blade
screwdriver to pry the gear or pulley off its shaft.
In either case, remove any Loctite residue from the shaft and the gear/pulley.
Inspect the old gear/pulley very carefully. If any teeth have burrs, are missing, or are
damaged, or if the center hole is distorted or enlarged, the gear/pulley must be replaced rather
than the old one re-installed.
1. Flat-Blade Screwdrivers, from 1/16 inch (1.5 mm) to 1/4 inch (6.5 mm)
2. Phillips Screwdrivers, numbers 0, 1, and 2
3. TORX T8 and TORX T10 drivers
4. Fine-Point, Offset Fine-Point, and Needle-Nose pliers
5. Small Diagonal Cutters or other cutter for cutting cable ties
6. Hex Keys, 1.5 mm and 2.0 mm
7. Hex Driver, 5.5 mm (this can also be used for securing push nuts)
8. Small and Medium Spring Hook Tools
9. Belt Tensioning Tool, Zebra P/N 900754-003

Preventive Maintenance
6.1 Cleaning System
Caution • PROTECT YOUR FACTORY WARRANTY!
The recommended maintenance procedures must be performed to maintain your factory
warranty. Other than the recommended cleaning procedures described in this manual,
allow only Zebra authorized technicians to service the Printer.
N
NEVER loosen, tighten, adjust, or bend, etc., a part or cable inside the printer.
NEVER use a high-pressure air compressor to remove particles from the printer.
Your Printer includes a simple cleaning system using Pre-Saturated Cleaning Cards provided.
The regular use of these cards will clean and maintain important parts of your printer that
cannot be reached: including the Printhead, the Transport Rollers, and the Magnetic Encoder
Station (optional feature).

card into the printer.
Step 7. When the cleaning process is done, the printer will eject the cleaning card. If the card
sensor still senses the cleaning card, the message REMOVE LONG CLEANING
CARD will display.
Step 8. Once the long cleaning card is no longer sensed by the exit card sensor, the message
INSERT FEEDER CLEANING CARD will display. Open the feeder cover and
insert the feeder cleaning card.
Step 9. When the feeder cleaning card has been sensed by the feeder card sensor, the
message CLOSE FEEDER COVER will display.
Step 10. When feeder cleaning is complete, the message REMOVE FEEDER CLEANING
CARD will display.

6.2 Cleaning the Printhead
Use of the cleaning cards will normally do an adequate job of cleaning the printer. However, a
separate Printhead cleaning, using swabs, can remove more stubborn deposits when print
anomalies persist. To avoid deposits, only use foam-tipped swabs.
Caution • Never use a sharp object to scrape deposits from the printhead. Permanent
damage to the printhead will result.
Step 1. Place the printer power switch in the OFF (0) position.
Step 2. Open the printer lid by pressing the cover release button. Open the cover fully to
reveal the Printhead mounted to the inside of the cover.
Step 3. Clean the Printhead by moving an alcohol-moistened swab tip side-to-side across
Printhead elements. Only use moderate force.
Step 4. Allow two to three minutes for the Printhead to dry before placing the printer power
switch in the ON ( | ) position.
Step 5. To reorder swabs, refer to the Media List on the Windows Drivers and User
Documentation CD supplied with this printer.
