I have Canon ipf 650 , it doesnt show any eror, the problem is it is new plotter, printed very few, and stoped printing only empty sheets were coming out, we changed printhead and again the same, empty...

With this type of plotter there really is very few possibilities. Replace the ink cartridge with a manufacturer original cartridge. If that doesn't work, change your paper. If still no print, send it back to Canon on a warranty replacement.

Hp plotter T1200 ps gives error 22.1:10

Problem with "Ink Supply Station" P/NoQ6683-60188. Replace it..
If you are tech guy follow the suggestion:
Error reason: ISS divided in to two units, each unit will maintain that pressure to pump ink to print heads. The part called "rocker" push the elestomer bongo(black rubberized material) to pump ink. This rocker movement sensed by the respective sensors to calculate timely movement. If these sensors malfunction or variations in rocker movement causes error..
Remove/take out Ink supply station, two units of right & left, right unit not working properly, clean sensors & lubricate the drive shaft.. Follow the pics..,
Note: Technically if you are not sound don't do this activity..

Cant clear Error Code E161-403E on canon iPF605

to enter SERVICE MODE the machine has to be switched OFF. While the machine is off, hold down the sheet or roll feed button and the information button. Keep these pressed and switch the machine on, keeping the buttons pressed until you see an S in the top right-hand corner of the display, then let go of the buttons. You should now be in SERVICE MODE.

later go to maintenance menu choice replace print head.

then follow their picture image to replace the print head.

first try to print nozzle check in services mode.
Scroll right to the service mode box (rightmost box) and press OK. You should then see the word 'DISPLAY'. Scroll right until you see the choice 'ADJUST' appear. Then scroll down until you see the choice 'NOZZLE 1' appear and press OK. If you haven't already loaded paper, the printer will prompt you to do so and then it will print out the NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN.

check go any nozzle no firing out ink..

I recently replaced the belt in my HP 450C plotter. I hadn't used it in about a year but I put new ink in too. I got one really light test page and now nothing. The print head tries to do the job and there...

it is possible that all the printheads have dried up .try dabbing a wet tissue on the bottom of the printhead,if this does not solve the problem then you need to replace the printheads

Hp designjet 500 does not work

You probably have a problem with dry ink in the service station. This is the "tank"on the right hand side of the plotter which collects all your wasre ink. I would have a guess that because of the long standing period this has dried and is preventing the station from moving and cleaning the heads. You will have to remove the right hand cover of the machine, then looking directly downwards just behind te display panel you will see two torx screws, loosen them. The service station can then be removed and cleaned. Be sure to disconnect the small plug on the service station motor and fan, also remove the motor and fan before cleaning the station with water under a tap. BEWARE this is a really messy job, your hands will be black (use dishwashing gloves) and it takes a really long time to clean it properly, wait for it to dry in the sun and re- assemble.
Good Luck

HP designjet 500 the system error 21:10

I recently had this problem as well and it was the service station gunked up with a bunch of ink over the years. Remove the right hand cover of the plotter. Remove the 2 screws that hold the service station in place and slide to the right to remove. When removed, take off the small motor by the gears. The rest is all plastic, I removed the 3 screws and "popped" the two black parts apart and cleaned the spitoon, which is just a sponge. I then dropped the thing into the sink and poured dishwasher soap. Let it sit for about an hour and rinse. It is really really messy. Then put the whole thing back together again. If I recall, the motor was the only electrical component.

Use care and caution so as NOT to break anything and I recall that the only electrical part was the small motor by the gears.

This wasn't so bad and I spent about 8 hours just because I was exercising much caution. If you're more mechanically inclined on the first go, then I would guess about 1 hr to clean and another 1 or two for dry time.

This SOLVED my problem and WOW there was a bunch of ink over the years. Don't worry, that is what the "spitoon" is used for to soak up the excess ink. Well, if not maintained or replaced, then the ink gunks the insides rock hard as in my case.

A new station is about $160 bucks. If you have HP install then you are looking at a few hundred more on top of that. To me, it was worth it and if it didn't work then I just get a new one and I had nothing to lose since the plotter was getting past the 21:10 error.

Be sure to download the HP Service Manual online so you know how to remove the service station. It is just 2 screws. Without the manual, I probably would have taken off many more screws as I would not have thought the service station simply slid out to the right. The designjet is well designed and was glad that I found a service manual online.

Good luck and use caution,

HP DesignJet 330 - plot from AutoCAD - page size problem From AutoCAD Map 3D 2006, I have created a viewport that uses a 24"x18" Landscape paper size for my Page Setup for plotting to our HP 330 onto a roll of 24" wide mylar. The important specification is that the plot must be contained in a rectangle whose exterior dimensions are 22"x16", so that there is a 1" boundary all the way around the 22"x16". This is easier said than done. In order to work out the page setup, I have worked out the plotting parameters on a roll of plain paper, which saves the expensive mylar. By trial and error, I hit upon a page setup that does what I desired. The leading edge and the 2 side edges have exactly 1" wide clear boundary. Now comes the trailing edge: the peculiar quality of the 330 is that, once the plot is finished, the machine advances the media so that, when it comes to a rest, I would like the cutter blade to be positioned to cut and leave a trailing edge of exact 1." I worked that out on the paper roll. Now, my problem: when I load the mylar roll, I get only a 1/2" buffer on the trailing edge, all other things coming out correctly. That is, the machine does not advance the media as far as it did when the paper roll was loaded. I have been careful to select "film" for the mylar and "plain" for the paper. All other things remain the same: same page setup, same plot information, etc. To me, this makes no sense whatsoever. I have tried my level best to control all the factors and introduce only one change, namely, the substitution of the mylar roll for the paper one. I am at my wits end. I would appreciate your assistance. Thank you. Phil Costaggini
