Question about HP DesignJet 430 InkJet Printer
Wont load paper or do anything
On this machine ( v old) if the drive belt has chewed then the plotter will not even come to ready instead it makes a few clunks and flashes lights - If this accurately describes your error then you will need the drive belt replacing, however this machine is now so old that getting hold of new unused parts is nothing short of a miracle Good luck with that one!

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

The reason it could be the main board is that it tells the front panel lights what to do. This seems like a logical problem the printer is having, usually things freeze when internal memory is bad. Surely have the main board replaced. There is a part of the internal programming that it cant get past. Compare it with trying to read a sector of a cd-rom that is scratched.

The sad part unfortunatly is that the sensor on the carrage is below minimum specification. The only solution is to change the carrage as a unit P/N C4713-60039 and its going to be expensive. Normally the carrage belt would be replaced at the same time.

SOURCE: paper feed
Check tray 1 there should be an arm hanging down in the center of the tray the arm goes thru a slot in the metal plate. This arm moves when you install paper in tray 1. If the arm is missing or not in the slot the machine will think paper is in tray 1 and try to feed from tray 1. You can try changing the paper size setting for tray one to something other than the size in tray 2.
For example If tray 2 is set for 8.5x11 set tray 1 for legal.
The machine should then pull the correct size based on the print job.
Hope this helps
