Fargo HDP5000LC Error 213 is a card jam in the laminator
Things to check:
Compatible Cards: ABS, Laminated PVC, PET, PETG, proximity, smart and mag stripe cards, optical memory cards
Note: ABS and PVC cards are not recommended for use in the HDP5000 Lamination Module.
-Run a lamination self test from the Fargo Workbench Utility to determine whether the issue is with the printer or your software
-Try different card stock, preferably Fargo Ultra Card III Composite Cards (81763)
-Clean the laminator rollers thoroughly with a Fargo 82133 cleaning card
-Update the printer firmware and driver to the latest on Fargo’s website.
-Check to see if the card is warping after the card exits the printer. If if so, reduce the transfer temperature in the driver by a few degrees at a time to find the optimum setting
– Make sure the printer is on a level surface
– Check to see if the metal tabs on the laminator are bent (This can happen in shipping.) If so, bend them back into place
– Verify that you are using the MagTech power supply
-If you cannot resolve the issue, please contact an Authorized Fargo Repair Center
