Our 1050c is plotting a double image as shown in the attached .pdf. It's almost like a shadow. What causes this and how do I fix it?

Thanks!

Can a hp designjet1050c need to be connected to a computer


If the question is whether or not the plotter will do a print without being connected to a PC the answer is yes. The plotter needs to go to READY, scroll to the printer icon on the display, scroll to DEMO PLOTS and press ENTER. Choose the page you want to print from there.

Streaking on photo plots on a 1050c


Streaks can come from several sources. Since you said they appear near the end of a plot, the print heads may be running out of ink before the end of the job. This would happen if you had air in the ink tube system and consequently in the heads. When the printer is idle for a while, ink will migrate to the bottom of the print head so when you print again it is ok for the first part of the plot and then gets to the air bubble.

Open the back door of the plotter and look for air bubbles in the ink supply lines. If air is present, it needs to come out. There is a purging tool at Designjet Ink Tube Priming Tool . The print heads may need to be replaced, but not before the tube system is clean.

  3. Once in the 'Printer Setup options' menu, use the arrow keys to scroll to 'Utilities', and press Enter.
  4. In the Utilities menu, use the Arrow key to scroll to 'Test Prints' and press Enter.
  5. Use the arrow key to scroll to 'Service Config' and press Enter to print the Service Configuration Print.
You should find the data you are after under the heading of Maintenance on the printout

Good Luck!

Incomplete Plot of PDF file


This is a common problem on the 500 range, not so common on the 1050. A quick way around the problem (using the parallel port only) is to load the HP Designjet 750c drivers. Send the drawing to the 750 using memory in computer option and it WILL print.

Incomplete plot from .pdf file - Hp DesignJet 1050C Plus


Was the plot originally done on a size D or E plotter.. A .pdf is generally not a good way to send a plot that has to be done to scale.. Can they re-send the plot in a hpgl format, or a format that you can use in another program, liks ACAD, and then print it through that program? This would provide you with some control, that a pdf document will not allow.

This is just a stab in the dark for me, but I am familiar with plotters in general, just not the many formats to print from..

Designjet 1050C


the plotter measures the media automatically. There is no size setting,only type of media.If you want to print on 8.5x 11 only a few times,load a sheet to print on by simply lifting the cover an aligning the sheet on the blue lines ,on the right side.If you plot a lot,I suggest get a 11" x 150' roll.
hope this helps
