    calcomp techjet720 stuck in MANUAL
    I unplugged the power cord, left it for 9 hours, plugged it back in. It is still stuck in MANUAL.
    So, I do not accept the 1st solution.

  • sunteriorfla Jan 30, 2009

    I cleaned the rod, and the print head on the ink cartridge. The plotter still reads: MANUAL [please install print head] The print head is on the ink jet cartridge, correct?

  • sunteriorfla Jan 30, 2009

    the control panel has 6 buttons. None are stuck.

  • sunteriorfla Jan 30, 2009

    Sorry to tell ya, I tried all your solutions with no luck.

    I replaced the ink jet cartridge, and it works.

  • sunteriorfla Jan 30, 2009

    Your many solutions did not fix the problem.
    I changed the ink jet cartridge, now it prints.
    THIS REPAIR PROBLEM IS NOW CLOSED!

You need to go to your "start menu" and select "printers and faxes". Once you're there you will see maybe 1 or more printers. Look for yours which is the CalComp Techjet720 and right-click it to select "set as default printer". If you don't have that option then it already is and should have a check by it. After that right-click it again and make sure it is on "resume". Because it may be paused.

Hi,Can you give me some details on your OS and what programs you have running the 720?

We had the same problem when we tried running AutoCad2000

It sounds like it may be just a driver issue.

If the printhead is on cart and your getting error message to install print head then try to clean the print head and install and if get the same error then you may need to change the print on the printer ...please follow these steps :
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If the p0lotter will not go ONLINE, might it be that it can not sense the computer it is attached to? If this hold true, then the issue might be how it is connected to the computer or if the port in the computer is enabled. Pls check port settings in printer properties.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Calcomp Drawing Board III


If you need documentation, go to GTCOCalcomp.com and they have FREE documentation for your tablet.
It may be a software switch is turned on and is causing this problem. Also check the driver and turn off any mapping.
When you read the manual it will show you how to turn off/on the software switches on the tablet.
These tablets should boot-up in the GTCO binary mode.
