Question about HP DesignJet Z2100 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

HP z2100 horizontal lines where the text or object are

When priting a picture, the priter works great. When for example adding text on that picture, the print is already not ok. What happens is, that at the end of the text (same size) I get darker tone (like shadow).

This goes all the way to the end of the print. These lines are also if I add some object in corel for example. But when printing picture without anything added to it, the printer works great.

Any idea?

Check for updated firmware and drivers. Also, if all your object and text or black try changing them to color and see if that helps, maybe there is something wrong with your black printhead, the black may not be used when printing photos, the printer may be using process black for photoes and real black for black text and objects.

Taking long timeto swith on the printer


try clearing all previous jobs from t he hard drive- it only does File System Check when a corrupt file has been identified on the hard drive and so it is re-writing all the information from the eerom back to the hard drive ( usually a sign of a failing hard drive) suggest you order one on-line ready for replacement. (you will need a HP Z2100 hard drive from HP a standard Hard drive will not work without some tricky copying/backup proceedures.

Horizontal Lines through the photo


Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work to take great pictures.

Your ink cartridge (s) is dried up, even some new ones are dried up, even tho' they're sealed.

Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.
