Take out your paper (check if you are loading the roll from "underneath" and not from the front) . Switch off and on. If the machine gives you the same fault again, press cancel for about 2 seconds, it should then go to ready mode. If it does not then you have a carrage sensor failure. In any case the sensor is failing and its finding it difficult to find the paper. Its a bit technical but if the sensor fails you will need to replace your carrage (head) unit

Lift blue error


Typically the lift blue lever error comes up if the plotter detects skew when loading paper. If the paper cannot be loaded without skew then either you do not have the roll seated on the holder properly or the roll of paper was not made properly, which I have seen.

Red and green light turn after first run


Its common problem in T Series Plotters:
Cause of malfunction: These plotters having separate sheet path as well as roll path for print media. After initializing plotter its verify the available media(sheet or roll). If sheet path is occupied by the media it wont allow the roll media, means first priority is for sheet.If sheet path paper sensor dusty or malfunction, printer will say "remove paper from sheet path" even no paper in sheet path..
How to shoot this problem:
You need to clean sheet path sensor located at sheet loading area.(black 'U' shaped part) Applying the pressured air at sensor is the best method to clean.. If problem remain you need to remove the sensor & clean or replace it.
Follow the snaps:

Canon ipf605 paper error


Here is what I've found out by trial and error.
Paper Roll Won't Load:
    -Usually occurs when the roll is less than 50% full
    -Printer will give the error "paper loaded askew"
    To Correct This:
      - Press and hold Stop until Job Cancel comes up on the
      screen
      - Press Menu
      o Scroll Down until Adjust Printer menu comes up
      o Press right side arrow next to OK button
      o Scroll down to Manual Band Adjust and press right side
      arrow again (or select one of the other adjustments)
      - Select Yes and press OK
      - Load paper roll - make sure paper is straight
      - When asked (printer will beep) select Plain Paper and
      press OK
      - Let paper load
      - When printer starts to print press and hold Stop to cancel
      job
      - Paper should now be loaded
      When all else fails load a new roll.
      This would be a temporary solution until the sensor is fixed.

Lexmark X1270. The paper goes to right and can not feed to print.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area.

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.

The paper always jams when I want to print. It grabs the right side of the paper and scrunches the left side. It is a lexmark x5150 I have tried different paper and nothing works.

I think the problem is not the computer. You shoud check the plotter by running the test print without the computer. When plotter's power is on, press Setup and Cancel keys simultaneously. If it does not print, then the plotter need repair.
According to your descriptions, there is System Error Code shown on your control panel. when the lights on for Ready+Cartridges+Data (DKL), it may have 9 possible causes referred by Service Manual page 2-7. You can check all these 9 items to see which one causes the problem.

The printer is not printing receipts and the error indicator is blinking on and off, what is the solution to this?


Flashing (approx. once every second): Out of paper
Flashing (approx. twice every second): Mechanical error (Buzzer sounds once.)
Most likely your paper feed is giving you the error. Remove the current feed, ensure there are no paper jam & insert fresh paper.
If
Mechanical Error :: Quick blinking Buzzer Sounds continuously for a pprox. 1 second :: Reset the Power
switch

Paper End Blinks.:: Buzzer Repeats a short 3-time sound twice at intervals of 0.5 second.:: Set a new paper roll.
Paper Near End Blinks.(Once a second) :: buzzer Repeats a short 3-time sound twice at intervals of 0.5 second.:: Set a new paper roll.

Mechanical Error : If the printer mechanism has a greater load due to a paper jam, etc., the buzzer will sound and the SEL/ERROR lamp will blink to stop the printer mechanism.
Paper End : If the printer has run out of paper, the paper sensor in the paper path near the print head will detect the end of the paper roll, turn on the buzzer, and blink the SEL/ERROR lamp to stop the printer mechanism. If the paper is inserted into the paper path, the paper will be loaded.
Paper Near End : If the paper is running out, the paper near end sensor will be activated to turn on
the buzzer and make the SEL/ERROR lamp blink. Even after the paper near end is detected, a command can be used to print by the specified number of lines. (See a description on the command for setting the number of print lines after paper near end detection)
Finally
Backup Data Clear : When the power is turned on, depending on the SEL switch operation, the
backup data in the input buffer will be cleared according to the flowchart on the next page.
To clear the input buffer, turn on the power while pressing the SEL switch.
The following messages will be printed.
"Clear Data in Buffer"
"Cleared Data in Buffer"
To print the data in the input buffer, simply turn the power on.
The following message is printed and the data in the input buffer is printed.
"Power Down(Data in Buffer)

On the scanner and the plotter there is a exclamation point after the 24'' paper. The 24'' paper will not print, but all other paper does. any idea what the ! point means and is there an easy solution to...


It means that the paper is not available. A smaller size paper could have been loaded in the place of 24" roll, the plotter could have more paper trays/rolls configured than are actually installed, or the paper may not be what it says it is.

From the service manual:

Ready + Cartridges + Data: Mark Encoder not detected. Possible causes:

1. The line on the mark encoder is dirty or missing.
2. Faulty or badly connected trailing cable.
3. Faulty or badly connected carriage sensor.
4. Faulty or badly connected X-axis Encoder Cable.
5. The drive roller has shifted slightly from the expected position (mechanics). Check that the carriage sensor lights just over the white mark on the drive roller when starting.
6. Faulty carriage PCA.
7. Faulty X-motor.
8. Faulty Y-motor.
9. Faulty electronics module.

Clean off cartridge contacts on printer carriage where carts sit and contacts on cartridges-if they sit for long periods of time they clog up.
