I assume that the "CARTRIDGES + DATA + MEDIA" lights are all on and STEADY (not blinking).

From Page 2-4 of the Service Manual:

"An error which the customer could probably solve, like a
paper jam, minor cartridge problem etc. In order to get more
information on the error, the CANCEL key must be pressed
which will display a SUBCODE. Use the error codes below to
find information on the subcode."

If those lights are FLASHING that's a "severe problem" and HP says that requires an service engineer.

Consult FIXYA's online service manual for the SubCode details.

Hello.

Your encoder strip (thin, plastic strip with slits on either end) may need replacing.

This is not a Do-It-Yourself project. I just wanted to offer what could be the problem.

But, if you repair equipment ...

To check or remove the encoder strip:

Yellow light blinking


Top light blinking means: door open, media out, no print

cartridge, or media jam This printer is in an error state that
requires operator intervention. Check the following:
- The print cartridge door is completely closed.

- Media is loaded. See Loading media into the input trays on page 24 for instructions.
- The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer. See Changing the print cartridge on page 51 for instructions.
- There is no media jam. See Clearing jams on page 68 for instructions.

Here is the manual.

Thanks!

Hi Can you help... we have the hp 450c and the media will not load, the cartridge, data, and media light stays on and then when you hit cancel the align media light stays on. Thanks Jill


This is an old posting so you probably have come right already (or thrown the plotter away) This fault is one of two things, firstly it's probably the carrage is likley sticking, clean the bar (silver bar( that runs from left to right with turpentine or spirits, you then need to lubricate it with sewing machine oil or similar. Spread the oil evenly across the bar by moving the carrage by hand left and right, use no more than two drops of oil. Also chack the condition of the belt and make sure it is in good condition. Secondally it could simply be a faulty black cartrige, try and replace and see what happens.

I have been attempting to burn a cd from my itunes library, it keeps giving me an error 2630. Yes I am using a new blank cd.


What type of CD media does your burner support? CD+R CD-R, CD-RW.
A few suggestions:
CD-RW or re-writables do not support audio burning to CD format.
Are songs being burned as a data disc(unplayable files) or CD audio?
Have you exceeded the 700 to 800 MB range of data that a CD can hold?
Try dropping a couple of songs off the list and see what happens.
Try rebooting the computer and try burning again.
Down load a free version of Nero software and try to burn the CD from there.

HP designjet 430, the data and media light come on at power up


The sad part unfortunatly is that the sensor on the carrage is below minimum specification. The only solution is to change the carrage as a unit P/N C4713-60039 and its going to be expensive. Normally the carrage belt would be replaced at the same time.

Opens the Window Media player on loading any other application


Formatting C drive while retaining data on other drives or partitions still leaves you vulnerable. I recommend that you burn your data to dvd/cd and perform a clean install to be sure you have a healthy operating system. Before you do that run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool and the Windows Media Security updates:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=ad724ae0-e72d-4f54-9ab3-75b8eb148356&displaylang=enhttp://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS08-076.mspx#top

DVD burning problems


Well DMX.MSI that is the dell media experience, probably there is a media direct installed on the system, bad thing about that is you might need to reinstall your hard drive, you can try to install nero and check if it will work.

Bd p1400


The latest upgrade is ver 1.9. It is a downloadable ISO in zip file format. Samsung recommends Nero to burn this. Burn this to a CD-R not a DVD. I also suggest burning at a slow speed... IE 10x and trying high quality media IE .... Verbatim. 90% of the problems are related to poor quality media or too high a burn speed. This disk has to be highly accurate for it to work correctly. I've updated over 40 of these particular players.

Clean off cartridge contacts on printer carriage where carts sit and contacts on cartridges-if they sit for long periods of time they clog up.
you will probably need new cartridge{s}
start with black and go from there.
