Question about HP PRINTER,DESIGNJET 500 42'' InkJet

1 Answer

Wasting alot of paper printing out on Hp Designjet 500

Hi, I have a big problem in that I can't find a way to change the way the printer prints out the papers. I mean, the images always comes out standing if you know what i mean. I tried to use portrait instead of landscape, but realized that was not the way to go. in fact, nothing at all changed. It would be very nice if you could help me find an easy way to change this setting, if possible.

Step 1
Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
*
Step 2
Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible."
*
Step 3
If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.
*
Step 4
Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper.
*
Step 5
If you have a laser printer, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician.
*
Step 6
If you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available at electronics shops or drugstores).
*
Step 7
Try changing the toner or ink cartridge.
*
Step 8
If you hear a clinking sound during printing, your printer probably has a broken gear and needs to be serviced by a technician.

Hi We have just recently bought secondhand-age


RAM RAM RAM...Thats the key here, Your Printer needs more RAM your PC needs more Ram... As much as you can fit in both. You see a Print job must be spooled, the only place it can, fast enough, is in RAM Memory, so if you have BIG files you need heaps of RAM especially in the printer, thats why it can take 32MB RAM, see? To "Print" a MB of data... you may need up to a triple that of scratch space.

Designjet 500 stops printing in the middle of print job


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
