HP Designjet 130nr printer paper roll scrolling problems

I have an HP Designjet 130nr Printer. After printing a 24 inch x 20 inch image using Photoshop CS2, the printer continues to feed about 6 feet of paper from the  24 inch roll and says it's jammed, instead of stopping after the image prints and cutting the paper from the roll. If I press the paper feed button it scrolls another 6 feet and stops saying it's jammed. The page setup is customized for a 24 inch x 20 inch document. I've tried blowing air in the printer incase there is dust on the electronic eye but nothing has helped. Any ideas? I'm using a Mac PowerPC G5; Dual 2.7 GHz processor; 6 Gb Ram. The printer is also having a lot of problems aligning the roll of paper and often ejects the paper.

    same thing here

    same thing here and I have not been able to get the things I need from the hp site.  It seems like the 130 info is lost on their website,  Can't successfully download firmware either.  Have a mac g5 quad, is everyone here on a mac? have the nr version?  what firmware is yours running?  Do you use the rip or print direct from ps.  I had to delete the hp printer updater (from software update, about 700mb) last month because it kept freezing crashing and not installing- anyone else have this problem?  I didn't have any issues before that.

SOURCE: What paper jam?

Does the printer even try to pick a piece of paper from the supply tray? If not, then it would appear that a sensor somewhere in the paper path is bad, either mechanically or electronically. Often, these sensors have a lever which touches the paper. If by chance the lever is broken or stuck it won't give a correct message to the logic circuit. If by chance the sensor is electronically defective, it would still give a bad message to the logic, and it would need to be replaced. Logic circuitry could be bad, in which case, replace the printer. With the lowcost printer/all-in-one units these days, it seems fixya has a continual flow of inquiries. Maybe this will give you some help.

Let me know the operating system.
as soon as u connect to the system the Operating system should recognise the printer. If not try changing the connection cable and the port of PC. Try installing drivers once again.
Best Regards

SOURCE: HP Printer Conflict

Perform a clean and "No bloated" installation of the hardware.
Uninstall ALL the HP printer software, disconnect the PSC and reboot the computer.
When windows finish to load, connect the PSC again, the new hardware wizard will show up, follow the instructions with the HP Installation disk in the drive.
IMPORTANT: When a silver sand glass show up in the screen, CANCEL the installation of the HP software (this is by clicking "CANCEL" button or by no accepting the license terms). This will install only the PSC Drivers and nothing else.
Try printing again.

SOURCE: HP Designjet 110 plus nr print/feed problem

hmmm..sounds like a memory overload..shut down machine, let the memory clear, and maybe reinstall the print management software..print queue issues are almost always from overloading the memory for the printer..

on the feeder issue, check for paper caught in tray or path, and clean the rollers too.

Image prints at the edge of the canvas

you should check the paper size loaded at the driver open devices and printers- choose HP DJ5500 driver - right click and open Printer properties-click the paper/sizes tab at the top-check that the paper size is set to ROLL- then set roll size ( 24"=A1--36"=A0---42"=A0/2A0)
now when you try to print make sure that the printing application ( EG paintshopPro) has the correct Page size (under document Properties)
and that your not strectching to fit or using the overprint commands within your printing application. the plotter should never be allowed to overprint as this model has no ay of clearing the excess ink that would be left on the platten

The paper cutter on the Designjet 130nr jams all the time. Help? Where are the screws for the cutter?

from memory this cutter is removed by removing the side cover and sliding it off the end of the carriage rail.

HP Designjet 130 ejects paper immediately from front, rear and tray. Pulls paper back and forth then ejects it from the tray or rejects it from the front. Printer printed the paper calibration sheet but...

It sounds like you have a bad leading edge sensor. This causes the printer to not be able to track where the paper is. Replacement of this sensor requires a certain amount of technical confidence as you will need to disassemble a certain amount of the printer.

Printing files smaller than actual?

Because the 5500 does not print to the edge of the paper it will auto shrink the image to fit the paper ( a 36 inch wide image will shrink to 35.45" when 36" paper is used). Your image will need to be at least 0.55" narrower than the width of your paper to avoid this. so: Crop the image if you can, or use wider stock.

Problem Printing Sheet Paper with the Epson 9800

On the machines control panel set to sheet fed (pressing the left button will change from Sheet, roll and roll with cut). In the print settings select your paper profile. On the page setup choose sheet. In the pull down menu you should only have basic paper sizes, no custom size. choose 20x30 and try again.

let me know if this helps
