Is your ready light on as well? If so this may indicate that the "mark encoder" is not detected.The mark encoder is the white plastic piece on the left end of the large black roller that the paper feeds around.If the encoder is very dirty,then cleaning may help.If not, carriage usually has to be replacved, I have heard of some that paint over the mark encoder with white out before replacing the carriage. Don't think I would try it but....Hope this helps.

Get the manual for the hp450c and check the error codes section. This will tell you were your problem lies in the plotter .

Trying to remove color cartidge error if not using color bliinking orange light


Hello,

Unfortunately no, Printers require both cartridges to be installed and operational to enable the printer even if you are only printing black text. No way to bypass this "feature".

I think the problem is not the computer. You shoud check the plotter by running the test print without the computer. When plotter's power is on, press Setup and Cancel keys simultaneously. If it does not print, then the plotter need repair.
According to your descriptions, there is System Error Code shown on your control panel. when the lights on for Ready+Cartridges+Data (DKL), it may have 9 possible causes referred by Service Manual page 2-7. You can check all these 9 items to see which one causes the problem.

    There could be 2 reason for this error. You can either reset the error or try and clean the printer from inside which might be causing the problem. Below are the 2 steps:

    STEP 1: Clean the printer from inside
    1. Opened the cover and checked the front right of the printer near the waste ink pads
    2. Carefully turn the cogs to move the ink cleaning mechanism
    3. There might be a load of paper jam debris blocking the mechanism from reaching its port
    4. Carefully cleaning this out and putting the printer back together

    STEP 2: Reset the error

    1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

    2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

    3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

    4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

    5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

    6) Power off then back on and test.

    Catridge light and Data aresolid orange when machine turned on


    This is a problem, sorry to say. The Mark Encoder is not being detected. In laymans terms this means that you need a new carrage. Part Number is C4713-60039. You also need to check on the condition of your belt at the same time. Is there somebody in your area that can do the work or are you capable ?
