When i turn power button on ,it sounds like grinding metal ,very loud vibrating noise.

sounds like the bearings. make sure machine is off open door put your hand at the front of the drum at the top then see if you can lift it up and down if there is alot of movement it will most likely be the bearings,or try turning the drum by hand to see if you can feel any vibration or hear any grinding noise.

My problem is after claibration i receive a message POWER OFF AND CHECK PRINTHEAD CLEANER PATH

Something is blocking the printhead cleaner assembly from moving forward and backward.
Turn the plotter off, open the printhead cleaner access cover (RH side) and see if you can move the cleaners to the front of the machine.
If you can move them fairly easily, then try (with the plotter still off) to move the carriage assembly (holds the printheads) to the left of the machine.
Check the condition of the carriage belt for frayed areas or missing belt teeth.
(I suspect a worn out carriage belt is causing the problem)
With the cleaner assembly to the front, and the carriage to the left, turn the plotter back on and see if the error continues.

Cricut makes loud grinding noise and will not turn roller bar

My wifes' cricut seems to have had the same problem. Try turning off the power, then manually slide the cutting carriage to the left look inside to the right. you should see a red button pull on it until it clicks. power up the cricut and see it it works. it solved the problem for my wife.

Magenta print head reseat.

i'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like your carriage assembly is bad. the slot that holds the magenta cartridge is defective.have the carriage assembly and trailing cables replaced. this should resolve your problem. these parts are becoming harder to find because of the age of the printer. carriage assembly part number is C6074-69388. trailing cable is C6074-60418 making the assumption this is a 36" plotter. also you can try cleaning the contacts on the carriage assembly. good luck!

We have a Calcomp Techjet 5424 printer. We got it

I have the same plotter and use canon BC-02 cartridges they work fine although they can be difficult to find, have you tried refilling the empty cartridge yourself it's easy piezy.

HP 750c+ plotter not responding

turn and unplug for 30 secs then open and remove / re-install each ink barrel according to your manual. You will have to go through the ink installation on your keypad one by one.
