HP Designjet T1100 media roller vibration

The problem is with a HP DJ T1100. With no rhyme or reason
the media advance roller will (while printing) stop advancing the
paper and just shake back and forth. You can sometimes get it
stop by forcing the roller by hand, otherwise you need to recycle
the plotter. I have changed the media advance drive, the encoder
sensor and encoder disk and the problem is still there.Any ideas
on whats causing the problem and how do I fix it. Thanks.

either the carriage board, line sensor, encoder strip, or electronics module are defective. The media sensor would not cause this behavior.

Rollers do not turn on!
Rollers are driven by a motor.
How is the printer telling you this information? (does the PC give an error, or the printer flash lights)

Does the paper make it out of the machine?

Is this "Rollers in the Back" the Fuser Unit?

is The Fuser unit is going bad,
if you open the back top cover, where it gets real hot, where the paper exit's, you should see two rollers, one orange, one either brown or black.. if that orange roller is damaged, has crease's, or covered with black toner, if the paper jams here alott, you probably need a new fuser unit. there is a pm kit available which includes the fuser and rollers, transfer, etc, which this site might have

SOURCE: cartridge path

By it going back and forth means all is ok with the encoder strip. Sounds like its asking for a bit of lubrication. There is a special oil available from HP for the carrage. This also works for tha large format machines using plastic bushes such as 500, 800, T610, new 510 etc.

Hp t1100 grinding noise after print

I suggest you run the diagnostics for the printer which allows you to isolate and run individual components. That way you can see which item is causing the noise. If it is coming from the left side, you might have a problem with the cutter.

My HP Designjet T1100 says "Ink Cartridge Faulty Replace Ink Cartridge". But the cartridge in brand new. Any suggestions?

The most common cause I've seen is that when people put the new cartridge, they forget to remove the seal which makes the ink stay in the cartridge. It is typically a strip that covers the hole where the ink comes out, or else a strip that is located far from the hole, but that needs to get removed or else the ink will not flow from the cartridge

I am faceing the problem hp dj t1100 inkjet printer. No connectivity avaiable.

For a single computer you can install a JetDirect card and assign an IP address. Then connect the computer to the plotter directly through the ethernet connection on the computer using a cross-over cable (standard ethernet cable will not work unless you use a hub). Another option is to simply use a USB cable connection. Drivers are available from, Support, Downloads.
