SOURCE: 1050C plotter
Here is the drivers page if you need a new set:

Your plotter driver needs to be set to either black or greyscale. The driver will overide the settings on the plotter unless you set up the plotter in manual. ie the pen thicknesses, colour etc are set in the control panel to manual. The driver takes priority always.

You doesn't say what application and OS versions you have, or if the printer is shared from a server or connected locally to a workstation. This is signifcant to solve the problem. Please clarify.
To make this work properly, all machines should have the HPGL driver and all drivers should have both the "Autorotate" "Inked Area" boxes ticked - both under General > Printing Preferences > Advanced AND under Advanced > Printing Defaults > Advanced.
Then you should create a paper size that is as wide as the media is wide, and longer than the longest/widest paper size you're ever going to print (6-10 feet long is OK!) - BOTH under Printing Preferences AND under Printing Defaults. This will ensure that every "odd" paper size (within media width limits) is printed without problems.
If the printer is installed on a server and shared, these settings should be done on the server - and the driver should be reinstalled on the workstations. If not, these chanvges should be done on each workstation that has access to the printer over the network.
When using older versions of AutoCAD you might have to reinstall the printer there as well for the changes to take effect.
Note: This solution has worked successfully over several years while working at HP support. The suggestion about the looong paper size may sound strange but it works!

SOURCE: max file size 450c can plot ?
You should have no trouble with the unit as additional buffering will be done in your PC if necessary. These units are a one pass rather than a whole page at a time.

You could have a print head that is on its way out but more likely you have a drop detector that needs to be cleaned out or replaced. The drop detector is part of the service station. If you are happy with the print quality, try turning off PEN CHECKING from the menu. The printer will stop using the drop detector if you do that and should run unattended batches. You run the risk of running out of ink and the printer not being able to see that, though.
