HP DesignJet 430 rejecting media

Hey, I have an HP DesignJet 430 plotter. After it ran out of paper I changed the roll and now it loads the media, goes thru all the motions and cuts the paper, then rejects the media. Can you help?Thanks!

When you load the paper, the carriage edge detector measures exactly where the right edge of the paper is located. Then the paper is rolled forward and the edge is measured again. If there is a difference in the measurements, the printer assumes the paper is not loaded squarely and rejects the paper. After you load the paper and the printer asks you to align the paper, take your time, release the paper with the release lever, and line up the right edge of the paper with the right edge of the paper roll. You might have to do it more than once to get it to load. Some plotters are very sensitive and others are more forgiving.

Plotter wont recognize edge of clear films when loaded from a roll or sheet. recognized plain paper fine


I would check the sensor on the carriage that detects paper. It might be dirty enough that printer cannot detect the subtle edge of the clear film. It is the blue light that turns on on the bottom of the carriage when you load paper.

HP DesignJet 430 wont accept media


Hi,
This is the problem with the sensor. It tries to read the size of the paper, the sensor is on the side of the carriage assy(cartridges are installed on this assy). You can try cleaning this sensor or get it replaced or some times the service center will replace the carriage unit as a whole.

Media Rejection


edgie46,
I have some bad news for you. The media sensor is faulty. This sensor is not sold seperatly. The entire pen carrage (head) has to be replaced at quite a cost.
Your part number from an HP parts supplier is C4713-60039

Its strange that is a refurbished machine with a faulty carrage. Maybee you can claim under a warrenty

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 430 ID is B/W, you need to load the 450C driver to get color, renaming the driver isn't enough.

PRINTER DO NOT ACCEPT PAPER ON HP DESIGNJET 450C


I don't know if you are running in sheet or roll media, but we have this problem with roll media if it is not aligned properly. Usually if I release the media lever and pull 10-12" of paper through and align it with itself and with the dotted line to the right of the plotter, then it will accept it. Sometimes takes several tries. Sheet problems may be caused by dirty sensors. Good luck.

This usually is solved by removing and reinstalling the ink cartridges...make sure the electrical contacts are clean (use a dry paper towel) on both the print cartridge and the carriage.

If the error still happens then the carriage or trailing cable are bad and will need replaced.

the plotter measures the media automatically. There is no size setting,only type of media.If you want to print on 8.5x 11 only a few times,load a sheet to print on by simply lifting the cover an aligning the sheet on the blue lines ,on the right side.If you plot a lot,I suggest get a 11" x 150' roll.
hope this helps
