Hpt 1100ps Grinding Noise

Hi Steven:

It sounds to me as if you have an issue with the power supply. Most power supplies these days have a fan built in them. When you have a grindy noise like that it more than likely is the fan going out or the blades of the fan is dirty enough to put it out of balance. Move your plotter out so you can see the back. Get down and listen carefully to determine where the grinding is coming from. Once you determine where the noise is coming from . Get a flashlight and is there are vents in that area look to see if you can see the fan blade spinning.

You may have to unplug the machine, remove the back of the printer to get to the area. If the fan blades are covered with dust. Try some canned air to blow away the dust. If that doesn't work, remove and replace the power supply. For future reference you should be doing maintenance on your printer monthly by dusting and vacuuming the open vents. You would be surprised how much damage paper dust can cause. You can look up the parts for your plotter here.

Good luck.

My hp designjet 500 doesn't recognize the I/O Card

By I/O card I assume you are referring to your JetDirect or the optional HP/GL2 formatter board, your EIO devices?
If you have them installed and the plotter does not recognize them.
Shut down the plotter then remove the power cord from the plotter or the wall and wait 5 mins.
Remove ALL EIO devices (JetDirect / formatter).
Plug the plotter back in and restart the plotter.
Test functions of the plotter.
Shut down the plotter and then add back only the JetDirect.
Start the plotter and check the function, and check if the menu will allow you to setup the JetDirect.
If successful, shutdown again and reinstall the Formatter Card (if you use one).
Test functions and check the I/O setup in the menu.
The idea in a nutshell, remove the cards and add them back one at a time to see which one if any is bad and causing the I/O to shut off.
If this does not help, you may need to replace the plotters Electronics module
