Printer Ribbon does not roll during print

Atouray used Ask the Experts™
I have a P430i Zebra Plastic Card Printer.  I replaced the printer head with a P330i model. When I send a print the Ribbon does not roll which results to a blank print card.

When I fixed back the P430i printer head it prints.

Is the Zebra P330i printer head compatible with the Zebra P430i printer?
