There is no way a plotter can simply change from a 450c to a 430, you simply have a bad color cartrige, EVEN if it seems ok. One of the color cartriges is not working, when this happens the plotter reverts to plotting black only. Check all color cartriges carefully, and check the ready light when clipping the cartrige back, it should blink at least once and up to three times indicating the cartrige is ok. If the plotter accepts all the color cartriges then load a sheet of A4 paper and do a color cartrige alignment page, you will quickly see which cartrige is faulty.

The 430 ID is B/W, you need to load the 450C driver to get color, renaming the driver isn't enough.

I have a hp 450c plotter and it will not print.


Has this USB to Centronics cable worked in the past, but has now stopped?
The reason I ask is that there are two kinds of parallel ports, and so two kinds of USB-to-Centronics adapators. One is unidirectional, and one is bidirectional. If your plotter requires bidirectional, then it won't work properly with unidirectional.

Plotter only printing in Cyan


Check your black cartridge. Do the pump the cartridge thing with the plunger on the left of the plotter. Check all the electrical connectors on the cariage and the cartridge - clean with water -or wd40 if you are very careful and check that all the contacts, about 40 of them are clean and undamaged on each cartridge. Replace with known working cartridges. run a color test as specified in the manual -- hp has relased the manual for this printer as they no longer service this unit.
