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..

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

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.
