SOURCE: HP DesignJet 450c driver for windows vista

Sirs, as you experienced very well, Windows creates a lot of problems in plotting CAD/Cutting/Engraving works. The problem is that Windows, Plotters and Applications usually don't give good drivers, up-to-date or they don't give at all for old plotters. We can offer a solution: Winline drivers On a flatbad plotter it supports a work area of up to:
Supports long page sizes on DesignJet and Vinyl Cutters (up to 200m or 660 feet).
WinLINE has been engineered by vector driver experts to drive your plotter, cutter or engraver efficiently from popular Windows applications and to create efficient HPGL files suitable for document management systems and downstream usage. And they are those recommended from [B]HP[/B], [B]Autodesk[/B] and work great with [B]Corel Draw[/B], Power Point, Micrografx Designer, EXCELL, Lotus, [B]Word [/B]
and all vectorial-oriented Windows applications, under W95, W98, WME, NT 4.0, W2000, WinXP, Win VISTA You'll find all informations at [url]www.paolocasella.it[/url]

SOURCE: hp designjet 450c error lights

Take all cartridges out while the plotter is on,then re-insert them one by one and watch the ready light flash after each insertion.If it doesn't flash that could mean 2 things,either the cartridge is bad or the contacts on the carriage are dirty or the entire carriage needs replacing.
I tell all of my dj-4XX customers to check the spittoon assembly(on the inside,right side)for ink buildup. If it looks clogged,you can temporarily scoop the ink that solidified out,but eventually it(spittoon)will need replacing.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: HP designjet 500 the system error 21:10

I recently had this problem as well and it was the service station gunked up with a bunch of ink over the years. Remove the right hand cover of the plotter. Remove the 2 screws that hold the service station in place and slide to the right to remove. When removed, take off the small motor by the gears. The rest is all plastic, I removed the 3 screws and "popped" the two black parts apart and cleaned the spitoon, which is just a sponge. I then dropped the thing into the sink and poured dishwasher soap. Let it sit for about an hour and rinse. It is really really messy. Then put the whole thing back together again. If I recall, the motor was the only electrical component.

Use care and caution so as NOT to break anything and I recall that the only electrical part was the small motor by the gears.

This wasn't so bad and I spent about 8 hours just because I was exercising much caution. If you're more mechanically inclined on the first go, then I would guess about 1 hr to clean and another 1 or two for dry time.

This SOLVED my problem and WOW there was a bunch of ink over the years. Don't worry, that is what the "spitoon" is used for to soak up the excess ink. Well, if not maintained or replaced, then the ink gunks the insides rock hard as in my case.

A new station is about $160 bucks. If you have HP install then you are looking at a few hundred more on top of that. To me, it was worth it and if it didn't work then I just get a new one and I had nothing to lose since the plotter was getting past the 21:10 error.

Be sure to download the HP Service Manual online so you know how to remove the service station. It is just 2 screws. Without the manual, I probably would have taken off many more screws as I would not have thought the service station simply slid out to the right. The designjet is well designed and was glad that I found a service manual online.


Good luck and use caution,

My hp designjet 500 doesn't recognize the I/O Card


By I/O card I assume you are referring to your JetDirect or the optional HP/GL2 formatter board, your EIO devices?
If you have them installed and the plotter does not recognize them.
Shut down the plotter then remove the power cord from the plotter or the wall and wait 5 mins.
Remove ALL EIO devices (JetDirect / formatter).
Plug the plotter back in and restart the plotter.
Test functions of the plotter.
Shut down the plotter and then add back only the JetDirect.
Start the plotter and check the function, and check if the menu will allow you to setup the JetDirect.
If successful, shutdown again and reinstall the Formatter Card (if you use one).
Test functions and check the I/O setup in the menu.
The idea in a nutshell, remove the cards and add them back one at a time to see which one if any is bad and causing the I/O to shut off.
If this does not help, you may need to replace the plotters Electronics module

I have plotter HP designjet 500 24" but when plotting from autocad do not plot in gray color, even though layers as assigned in light colors on the plot style.


You need to set up your pen assignments in Autocad, have you done this? ie, Pen1 is 0,25 black, pen2 is 0,35 blue etc,etc. If this is not done you will have problems with colours and line thickness's.

HP DesignJet 1055cm Plus system error: 04C300 001F0000.


Its either the EIO card, make sure its seated properly, or the hard disk drive has failed in your plotter. Try running the plotter with out the hard disk drive, it is static sensitive, so make sure your grounded before removing it.
