Question about HP DesignJet 130NR InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Designjet 130 ejects paper immediately from front, rear and tray. Pulls paper back and forth then ejects it from the tray or rejects it from the front. Printer printed the paper calibration sheet but then won't read it.

    The only sensor I see in the paper path is the OOPS, is this the sensor you are talking about

It sounds like you have a bad leading edge sensor. This causes the printer to not be able to track where the paper is. Replacement of this sensor requires a certain amount of technical confidence as you will need to disassemble a certain amount of the printer.

    I just checked the HP tech database and they suggest the following for paper rejection. I know on the 110 series the oops sensor would cause the problems you are experiencing, however HP does not list this as an issue on the 130

    If the customer cannot load media through any path:
    If the paper is not detected or rejected, check the sensors in the cleanout and in the printer.
    If the paper does not move correctly inside the printer and is rejected due to skew, check that the Pick Roller Assembly and Feed Rollers are not worn out.

    I don't believe I have a sensor in the cleanout as I do not have the roll attachment. Pick Rollers seem to take paper from the front feed flawlessly. Is there some sensor that is reading the skew of the paper, and is used for calibrating the paper path?

    We are having the exactly the same problem. We just replaced OOps sensor but did not solve the problem. Any idea?

    HP DesignJet 430 rejecting media

    When you load the paper, the carriage edge detector measures exactly where the right edge of the paper is located. Then the paper is rolled forward and the edge is measured again. If there is a difference in the measurements, the printer assumes the paper is not loaded squarely and rejects the paper. After you load the paper and the printer asks you to align the paper, take your time, release the paper with the release lever, and line up the right edge of the paper with the right edge of the paper roll. You might have to do it more than once to get it to load. Some plotters are very sensitive and others are more forgiving.

    the green lever it is referring to is on the front if you pull out the tray. it is your conveying unit. sounds as if you have a paper bit bit stuck in a sensor or a broken you have a rectangular piece on the back of the printer that pulls out? that would be your duplexing unit (there are a couple sensors there too) sensors are black and should move back and forth freely when touched with your fingers.
