If i remember correctly you can not do edge to edge on this printer. you may have the reached the outer limits with your current configuration. sorry this is not the answer you are looking for.

Image prints at the edge of the canvas

you should check the paper size loaded at the driver open devices and printers- choose HP DJ5500 driver - right click and open Printer properties-click the paper/sizes tab at the top-check that the paper size is set to ROLL- then set roll size ( 24"=A1--36"=A0---42"=A0/2A0)
now when you try to print make sure that the printing application ( EG paintshopPro) has the correct Page size (under document Properties)
and that your not strectching to fit or using the overprint commands within your printing application. the plotter should never be allowed to overprint as this model has no ay of clearing the excess ink that would be left on the platten

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..

I have an hp1055cm plotter that is leaving streaks on the page i.e. it makes a clean first pass and on the second pass (as the print progresses)it is like the head does not reach the paper and leaves the...

Configuring the HP1055CM Driver Right click on the icon for the plotter (for WinXP, go to Start -> Printers and Faxes) and select Properties. Make the following changes:
On the tab marked General, click on the Printing Preferences button.
In the window that pops up, select the Paper/Quality tab choose Roll Feed for the Paper Source. Next, click on the Advanced button:
• Under the section called Graphic, click the down arrow next to ICM Method and choose "ICM handled by Host System".
•Under the section on Document Options, there is a section called Postscript Options. Click on the "+", then change "Optimize for Speed" to "Optimize for Portability". Also make sure the "PostScript Language Level" is set to 3.
• In the section Printer Features, set "Scale to:" to "No Change".
• If you wish, under Paper/Output, you can select a default paper size appropriate for the plotter: ARCH E (36in x 48in) seems reasonable. (Note that when you print from an application, you may want to adjust the paper size for your specific plot, and you should also set your document to an appropriate smaller size in the application.)
• Click on OK buttons until you get back to the main window for Properties.
On the properties tab marked Advanced, click on the radio button for Print Directly to Printer.
Also click on the Printing Defaults button, then the Advanced button. If you see a similar set of postscript options like you just went through above, repeat the process to set the ICM method, set postscript options to "Optimize for Portability" and Language Level to 3, change the paper size, and set "Scale to" to no change.
Click on OK buttons until you get back once more to the main window for Properties.
Under the property tab for Device settings, you should change the Output Protocol from ASCII to JPEG. (If there is no JPEG option, select Binary.) It is also helpful to change "Send CTRL-D at end of job" from YES to NO, but that isn't crucial. Under the section marked Installable Options, change the amount of installed memory from "Default" to the closest value below 96 MB, probably 80 MB. (The plotters actually have 96 MB, but since not all of that is available for user jobs, it's better to claim the smaller value. This is still larger than the "default" size, which is about 48 MB.)
Click OK.

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
