How to Calibrate a Film Sensor on a HDP5600/HDP5600XE

If your ID card printer is not properly recognizing your reverse transfer film, either by not recognizing the type of film or acknowledging that a film has been replaced, you will need to calibrate the sensors on your HDP5600 printer.

To Calibrate Your Printer

  1. Go to your Devices and Printers folder.
  2. Right click on the Fargo HDP5600, and choose Printing Preferences.
  3. Click on the ToolBox.
  4. Click on the Calibrate Film tab. Follow the instructions listed on this tab, and then click Calibrate.
