The Pronto raised this error while hand feeding a card because it saw that the Rear Card Sensor is blocked before the front sensor. It expects the front to trigger first…

There can be two causes for this error:

The rear card sensor is blocked (ON) all the time.

Can be caused by dust, debris, or a faulty sensor.

-or-

The font sensor is unblocked (OFF) all the time.

Very rare, but the front sensor may have dropped inside printer, or a faulty sensor.


Check the rear card sensor

Run the ID Card Printer Support Utility.

Connect to the pronto and choose the Statistics and Commands tab.

Type the following into the Quick Command box;

SHWREAR

Then click Send

The front panel LED will change from Green to White;

  • It is now showing the status of the rear card sensor:
  • No Card In Sensor:  Front Panel LED is ON
  • Card In Sensor: Front Panel LED is OFF
  • Open the lid, remove the dye film.
  • The rear card sensor can be seen on the left-hand side at the very back of the printer.
  • A card can be manually slid into the gap to test the sensor as shown below:
  • When the sensor is blocked, the front panel LED ‘should’ go out.

Checking the front card sensor

Send this quick command:

SHWFRONT

You guessed it… the location is at the front of the printer, on the left.

It is immediately behind where the cleaning cassette sits.

Once again, it ‘should’ be:

No Card In Sensor: Front Panel LED is ON

Card In Sensor: Front Panel LED is OFF

Exit sensor test mode by sending this quick command;

SHWOFF


Manually clean with compressed air and/or soft brush.

 

Cleaning brush

Also ensure you have the correct cleaning cards for your printer:

Pronto Cleaning Roller Assembly

When the sensor is working we also suggest to follow the full cleaning routine for your Pronto here:

Pronto Cleaning Roller Assembly

 


The sensors did not behave as described above?

If the cleaning of the sensor did not restore the correct behaviour you may be in need of a repair.
