My hp 450c plotter works properly in vista. First I' ve tried unsuccesfully to add new printer through windows menu. Then through Autocad menu (plotter manager) I added the specific plotter.

Trailing cable burns

The smoking and melting cable are the result of a short cicuit.
The problem is going to be determining which end the short is occuring on. It most likely is the carriage end of the cable that is the culprit. Most likely you will need to replace the carriage assembly and of course the trailing cable as the new one may have also been damaged.
You may need to use your fingers to check if the top of the carriage assembly (where the cable connects) is also getting hot (warmer than normal).

Quality marks on a HP wide format

Ck to see if the "spittoon" is full. This is the box on one end (depending on model, that the plotter uses to clean the print head nozzles.

The newer plotters use pigmented ink which builds up in the "spittoon" and forms what looks like a small mountain of gunk. When the carriage assy passes over this, it picks up a little bit on the print head and bottom of the carriage assy and lays it down on the paper.

You can remove and clean the "spittoon" but it is a real mess and replacements are not very expensive. Remember to clean the bottoms of the print heads and carriage assy when you perform this repair.

Hp design jet 500 error code 5613?

System Error: 56:13
Error in the Drive Roller Encoder Sensor quadrature.
Corrective Action: Try the following:
Switch the Printer Off and wait a few minutes. Switch the Printer
On again and check if the Error Code has disappeared.
If the Error Code continues, replace the Drive Roller Encoder

sounds like the media motor encoder is dirty or has failed , there are videos on you tube on how to get to the sensor ,OR if your not up to it I would recommend Belmonte Business equipment as being much cheaper than HP to resolve your issue

How can I replace the belt for the ink carriage

Here is an HP Support Forum where a user has posted a detailed procedure for the belt replacement.

The Service Manual is needed. It's available at:
Designjet 430, 450, 455C - Service Manual
DesignJet 430, 450C, 455CA - Quick Reference Service Manual

As mentioned, it's a delicate and time consuming operation. I replaced my belt two years ago with little problem. (Be sure to clean the old degraded belt gunk off the drive pully too!)

It's not a job for "Beginners". More like "Intermediate" or "Advanced".

Good Luck!

This is the part I ordered. It was $15
If you have the smaller one, you must research the part number for that.

**you need a good driver:
whilst ordinary printer drivers may treat plotters like very large, slow, desktop printers, our driver uses the native vector graphics capabilities of your large format plotter to render CAD and line drawings at maximum speed.

My plotter does not recognize always that a printer cartridge is seated and will print without cyan

A model # would help. HP makes cleaning kits for the majority of DesignJet plotters that includes a tool to clean the contacts in the carriage that holds the printheads. Other than that, you could try a chamois swab (I think you can still get them at Radio Shack) dipped in 91% isopropyl alcohol (shake of the excess) and try cleaning the contacts that the printhead comes in contact with. Oxidation and/or ink can cause a bad connection that gives you the no printhead error. Reply with the DJ model # & I will be happy to get you the cleaning kit part #. Here is link for to the cleaning kit for the DJ 330, 350C, 430, 450, 455CA and 700. Hope that helps you...
