How to Calibrate a Ribbon Sensor on a Zenius

If your Zenius ID card printer is not properly recognizing your ribbon, either by not recognizing the type of ribbon or acknowledging that a ribbon has been replaced, you will need to calibrate the ribbon sensors on your Zenius printer.

Please note, a YMCKO ribbon must be installed to run the calibration.
