What should I do if the following problems occur with the UV DTF transfer film printer?

Table Of Contents

In the advertising production industry, the UV DTF transfer film printer is an indispensable “artifact”. Although the UV DTF transfer film printer is simple to operate, it may encounter some problems for “novices” who are not skilled in the operation. What should I do if there is an error in the quality of the printed image? Don’t worry, I will sort out these 3 common problems for you.

Print media

        During the printing and production process of the UV DTF transfer film printer, due to the print head failure, the height adjustment of the media placement, and other factors, the picture print quality will be wrong, mainly due to the nozzle dripping, ink leakage, or the distance between the nozzle and the material medium. The print head wipes the surface of the media and damages the image quality. The printed material must be placed flat, which is much better for equipment with suction devices. Of course, there is another reason that the printing material is too transparent or too thick. At this time, the printing material needs to be reloaded to ensure a smooth surface, and the opaque printing material must be replaced at the same time.

Dripping ink phenomenon

        In the printing process of the UV DTF transfer film printer, there is occasional ink dripping. This situation is usually because the filter in the air filter on the secondary ink tank is wet, resulting in poor ventilation. This situation may also be caused by the fine hairs and dust on the nozzle of the UV flatbed printer. When this dirt accumulates to a certain extent, the ejected ink will automatically drip. To solve this kind of problem, you need to replace the air filter. At the same time, you need to clean the nozzle with a special cleaning fluid and do a detailed inspection of the two edges of the lightbox cloth to see if there are extra burrs. If there are burrs, you can simply dispose of them with a lighter.

Data transmission problem

        Perhaps you will encounter such a situation: After the UV DTF transfer film printer transmits the print data, its indicator will keep flashing, and even if the start button is pressed, the UV DTF transfer film printer still cannot print. This is also a common print production failure, which is difficult for inexperienced operators to deal with. It should be noted that if the UV DTF transfer film printer performs an incorrect termination printing operation during the printing process, even if the printing job is stopped, there will still be some residual print data transferred to the UV DTF transfer film printer on the computer side. These print data are still retained in the memory, but in the view of the UV DTF transfer film printer, these data are invalid. Therefore, the printing work cannot be realized, and the subsequent printing work may not be performed normally.
