Question about HP DESIGNJET 500 InkJet Plotter Printer

1 Answer

Hi We have just recently bought secondhand-age

Hi We have just recently bought secondhand-age unknown) HP Plotter Designjet 500 Plus (c7769F) 24'' machine.

We find that when printing from an A1 PDF file with considerable detail (in the order of 1meg in size and above) the printer fails to accept all the data from the source computer, and therefore prints only a fraction of what was originally on the PDF.

Although the machine is meant to have 32MB RAM (I think its RAM), it can't seem to handle a file greater than 1MB in size. Further more, it cannot que up print jobs, or print multiple copies of a job.

As far as I can see, I think it is an issue with the hardware, because of it's 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.

sounds like the printer is broken pretty badly. Is it still in warranty? Contact HP for a replacement, or else it's time to buy a new one.

This error indicates that there is a problem in the Service Station Assembly (SVS). Either you have a paper left-over after a paper jam thats blocking the movement of the mechanism of the SVS or sometimes ink mounds around the Station if yes try cleaning it, or it could be a transient error that entails to turn the plotter off for a while and then turn it back on. If problem reappears and you are familiar in this plotter disassembly, check manually while the plotter is OFF the motion of the SVS gears; you can figure out the smooth movement.
In worst cases if problem persists i have to tell you that replacement of the SVS might solve your problem.

Hope this fixes your problem if not please reply
