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

I am attempting to plot a pdf file of a drawing from a European supplier. The none-scaled size is 36' x 167.9". I need to maintain actual drawing scale in the plot so do not want to scale it to fit. Two problems arise. First, I cannot seem to get the complete plot when using 36" wide roll paper, even with the margins reduced. Part of the border and title block are cut off on one side.
Second, the plot consistently stops at 109-13/16" (image). I can avoid spewing out blank paper for the rest of the full 169" (I set the "custom" paper size to 169" length) by setting the plotter to cut at the end of the inked image. Otherwise, it spits out blank paper for the remainder of the 169".
I have set the driver to use memory in the computer, which does slow the plotting, but does not let it complete the full image. (the plotter has 128MB in one slot and 64MB in the other - my machine has 2G).
I am at a loss. I need to plot this drawing at full scale and use it immediately. I would certainly welcome help at your earliest convenience.

Thank you,
John

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..

WHEN I AM TRYING TO PRINT THE PDF FILE , I AM GETTING DIFFERENT MARGINS COMPARED TO ORIGINAL PDF FILE.SOME PRINTER IT IS ACTUAL AND SOME PRINTER IT IS DIFFERENT.HOW TO RECTIFY SUCH PROBLEM.KINDLY...


Acrobat reader scales pages on printing, depending on the printer and its driver. By default, Acrobat Reader will use one of the scaling options.
Before printing the PDF document be sure that you select the right kind of paper size such as A4, Letter and B5 which will be printed. Paper size is defined in the Document Setup dialog box for the document.
To print the document without different margin problem:
- Open the Acrobat Reader’s Print dialog box (Choose File > Print).
- Choose “None” from the “Page Scaling” drop-down list. (It will not change until you change it again).
- Then click “OK” to print the document.
This may solve your problem.

You should have no trouble with the unit as additional buffering will be done in your PC if necessary. These units are a one pass rather than a whole page at a time.

Error code 04C300 001E0000


This is an IO error. If there is a Hard Disk installed, remove it - the printer will run fine without it. If that does not solve the problem, remove the JetDirect card and run the test print. If the test print works, replace the JetDirect card. Parts available at: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-654-designjet-1050c-1055cm.aspx
