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..

Problem installing drivers for HP 4355 printer in vista 32bit OS


Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
