When you load the print driver on your computer (add a printer), HP drivers always default to the equivalent of Best mode. Go to the properties of the printer driver and apply a faster setting.

Is the quality all right? Check our print options and make sure you haven't specified printing in only one direction.

SETTING DESIGNJET 5500 TO 42"


Setting your 5500 to 42" - this is done through the application ( eg PDF VIEWER) when selecting print choose print options or advanced in the next window that appeaers( driver panel) select the tab marked paper, in the next window you are able to set the size of the image and the size of the paper also whether youwould like the printer to transpose the print 90degrees to make more use of the media
alteratively you could open your printers folder select the DJ5500 and right click -select properties and as above choose the Paper tab to set as default the paper roll to the size required
hope this helps - if not please give more details that I might better understand your issue

Hp designjet 5500 error codes


Error code 0C0040 is caused by the drop detector not detecting drops from at least 2 print heads in the same area. Run print head recovery on all the print heads and see if that clears up the problem. If not, then clean or replace the drop detector. Drop detector can be ordered from: http://www.lpscomputer.com/p-2512-c6072-60179-designjet-5000-5500-drop-detector.aspx

How can i install hp designjet 5500 PS on my com puter using network cable? My plotter (hp designjet 5500) do not have USB port instead it has netwok port from which one can install via the local network...


You are doing some mistake.

All peripherals will attach directly to the main server or main system.

Then from the main system you attach the network switch and share the peripherals with other
system.

you connect the printer, plotter, scanner etc to your computer directly through the aproprite cable /
port.

check on hp.com. click support and driver/ enter the product number in the bar/select the operating system as win 7. i think u must have tried that before.
hey wait let me check ....
ok the win 7 support driver is still not updated on the site so dear you will have to wait for few more days till hp updates the software for your 450c printer.
sorry dude there is no other way out.

Printing files smaller than actual?


Because the 5500 does not print to the edge of the paper it will auto shrink the image to fit the paper ( a 36 inch wide image will shrink to 35.45" when 36" paper is used). Your image will need to be at least 0.55" narrower than the width of your paper to avoid this. so: Crop the image if you can, or use wider stock.

After print heads alignment its getting error 1004


The trailing cable is probably runing the printhead. Try replacing the printhead and trailing cable together. Parts available at: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-622-designjet-5000-5500.aspx

Ink Cartridge problem? (HP designjet 5500 ps 42")


you are correct, this is usually caused by the contacts going bad on the carriage assembly. try cleaning the contacts, if this does not help, than you need to replace the carriage assembly. hope this helped.
