Plotter needs recalibration

I have an hp design jet 500 plotter that I need to recalibrate because the color is not right. I have all new ink cartridges but the color is not as it should be. I can't figure out how to recalibrate from the menu.

You need to enter the service calibrations menu, to do this select the set up menu, once inside the set up menu press the up arrow & enter keys together. This will take you to the service tools menu, from here select service calibrations (printhead alignment and colour calibration are both in this menu). If you still here problems after you have calibrated your machine or the calibration fail replace the printheads.

Hp plotter T1200 ps gives error 22.1:10


Problem with "Ink Supply Station" P/NoQ6683-60188. Replace it..
If you are tech guy follow the suggestion:
Error reason: ISS divided in to two units, each unit will maintain that pressure to pump ink to print heads. The part called "rocker" push the elestomer bongo(black rubberized material) to pump ink. This rocker movement sensed by the respective sensors to calculate timely movement. If these sensors malfunction or variations in rocker movement causes error..
Remove/take out Ink supply station, two units of right & left, right unit not working properly, clean sensors & lubricate the drive shaft.. Follow the pics..,
Note: Technically if you are not sound don't do this activity..

My hp designjet 500 doesn't recognize the I/O Card


By I/O card I assume you are referring to your JetDirect or the optional HP/GL2 formatter board, your EIO devices?
If you have them installed and the plotter does not recognize them.
Shut down the plotter then remove the power cord from the plotter or the wall and wait 5 mins.
Remove ALL EIO devices (JetDirect / formatter).
Plug the plotter back in and restart the plotter.
Test functions of the plotter.
Shut down the plotter and then add back only the JetDirect.
Start the plotter and check the function, and check if the menu will allow you to setup the JetDirect.
If successful, shutdown again and reinstall the Formatter Card (if you use one).
Test functions and check the I/O setup in the menu.
The idea in a nutshell, remove the cards and add them back one at a time to see which one if any is bad and causing the I/O to shut off.
If this does not help, you may need to replace the plotters Electronics module

>Your have new cartridges,not refilled right?
>Remove cartridges,

Most of the cases ISS arrested with ink leakage from cartridges, result connectors,PCB tracks & cables got damaged.. check perfectly if found shoot the problem....
> Replace ISS unit,, But only professionals can do the replacement..
*** Reading, writing & initializing the backup EEROM located in ISS unit, if any thing goes wrong both ISS & Formatter assm will loose their memory..be careful..

I have plotter HP designjet 500 24" but when plotting from autocad do not plot in gray color, even though layers as assigned in light colors on the plot style.


You need to set up your pen assignments in Autocad, have you done this? ie, Pen1 is 0,25 black, pen2 is 0,35 blue etc,etc. If this is not done you will have problems with colours and line thickness's.

Hp design jet 750c plus. while plotting auto cad drawing,i command it to plot black/white (mono) but it plots all in color instead.I selected mono button on the printer as well.


Your plotter driver needs to be set to either black or greyscale. The driver will overide the settings on the plotter unless you set up the plotter in manual. ie the pen thicknesses, colour etc are set in the control panel to manual. The driver takes priority always.
