I think this is an error with the air pressure system. The first thing I would advice you do is turn off the power and then open the left side back and disconnect the ribbon cable and the air hose to the tube assembly and then reseat both and try again. I would also suggest you check all hoses back there to make sure none of kinked or broken.

Take care.

Hp designjet 800 does not recognize black cartridge in ink supply station

I see lots of different posts- but not many that are actually helping-
Ffirstly are you using a original HP ink cartrige? ( 3rd party inks have IC chips that are usually not as robust as HP's, If- you've tried a Brand new Never inserted cartridge and still have the same error,you nedd to look at how the plotter recognises a cartridge, the IC chip (found at ink cart bottom) needs clean contacts check and clean the same for the opposite contacts in the plotter- wipe over with a alcohol wipe, allow to dry and try again, if it fails again I would suggest a replacement ISS ( ink Supply Station) a common failure on th Iss gives this exacting fault and may well be the cause, as above the ISS is a Service engineer fit,but can be handled by the customer if they are confident and thorough when following instruction, a ISS will likely cost about $200 so suggest you try cleaning the ink mist from the contacts first,

Designjet T 770 error 87:10

Actually it has to do with a "dirty' encoder strip. The carriage cannot read the strip due to a coating of ink-over spray from time. My suggestion it to call in a Service professional who is familiar in cleaning Wide Format printers. Other areas also are in need of cleaning, lubrication as well. Timing is "Everything" on these babies 60752e95-9503-4f40-8e0c-e67a2ad6b300.jpg

Yellow printhead on my Designjet 3500CP isn't releasing ink

If you can access the printhead, try taking a rag with a small area heavily wet with Denatured Alcohol (this is a cleaning solution that can be purchased at Walmart or most stores with cleaning supplies. Rub the printhead thoroughly with the alcohol for a minute or two, it should help loosen any dried ink. Then try to print or run a print head clean cycle on the printer.

HP DesignJet 500PS mixed ink color in tubing


Think this should be fairly easy. If it's still printing quite happily but just th colours are off, probably means your print heads are fine. Hold onto the new ones and return to store for credit.

All you cand do to flush out the system is to keep printing. Belt out a couple of phots and it should start to come good maybe 1-2 photos maybe 5-6. But should come good.


P.S.: refer to manual that you do now have all the rite tanks in the rite place.
