Written By john.fieldsend

The video below shows the Magicard 600 printhead replacement but the process is similar for all Magicard direct-to-card printers, both 1st and 2nd generation.

See our YouTube channel for your specific printer videos


Note:  Your new replacement printhead may be a new updated type.

If your old head did not have this connector below and the new one has it then dont’t worry, you can ignore this connector:

The printhead simply had an update to allow use across model ranges with the addition of this connector.

A later update was to the heatsink within the Thermal Print Head assembly to remove the coloured anodising:

What customers say about our support...

The issue I had with the printer was resolved with speed and professionalism.

Printer model: Magicard 300

In all fairness, as my question was the opposite of what MagiCard would like to achieve I wasn't really expecting a comprehensive answer. Even though I did not get a solution to my question, the answer was well formulated and even offered some alternatives inducing the effect the alternative would have to the print quality.
