How to Change the Ribbon in the Magicard Rio Pro ID Card Printer


Hi I’m Nick, and today I’m going to show you how to change the MA300 YMCKO ribbon for the Magicard Rio Pro printer. Now
this is a very straightforward and easy process so you shouldn’t get into any
difficulties doing this. All you’re going to need is a replacement ribbon. We’re going to keep the Magicard Rio Pro on while we do this so that the printer can
initialize when the ribbon has been replaced. First of all we’re going to
open the lid by lightly pressing the silver button on the top there. Once
you’ve opened the lid all you need to do is pop out the old ribbon like so. You
will notice the spools are different colors blue at the back and white at the front, this corresponds with the roller at the back of the printer and at the front of
the printer to make it easy when you’re replacing the ribbon. Now we take the
ribbon out the box. Before we change the printer ribbon we need to remove the cleaning roller. Once you’ve removed the cleaning roller all you need to do is pop
out the metal roller bar, dispose of the old roller and then pop it into the new
one. Before popping it back into place simply carefully remove the outer label, like so. Now all you need to do is line the
blue spool up with the blue disk like so and then the white spool with the right
cog like so. And then just close the lid. One of the great things about the Rio
Pro printer is that it will automatically wind the ribbon onto the
first panel so it’s ready to print as soon as you’re ready. So there we go quick simple and easy. However if you do have any questions please feel free to give
us a call on 0800 988 2095.
