Printer is not recognizing/detecting the DTF film

by Ivy Chen 17 Jun 2024

Depending on the printer and sheet of DTF film you use, Your printer might not detect the DTF film. Here are some tips to help you with your printer

It may be the film is too translucent or transparent for the printer's sensor to "see" the film.

In this example, you can see our printer is showing an error when it attempts to use the film. Let's cancel this print job for now.

With the film, we will need to add something for the printer to "see" the film. You have the option to use standard printer paper and paste it on, or a white marker to add the visual indicator.

In this example, we will cut a portion of label paper. 2-pieces, about 1cm X 4cm (0.5-INCH X 1.5-INCH) for each is good. We will attach them to the glossy non-printing side, at the corners where the film will be fed into the printer.

Let's try to print again. The film is now feeding through the printer correctly.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
