Are the lights flashing? If they are flashing it is a system error, if they are on steady it is a recoverable error. When you push cancel is the media light the only one or is align media or ready on as well?

No. Inkjets printers use liquid ink that is sprayed onto the paper through nozzles. Toner-based equipment uses powered ink that is electrostatically attracted to a metal drum then transferred to the paper and heat fused to it. The processes are completely different and require totally different internal hardware to achieve.

Red and green light turn after first run

Its common problem in T Series Plotters:
Cause of malfunction: These plotters having separate sheet path as well as roll path for print media. After initializing plotter its verify the available media(sheet or roll). If sheet path is occupied by the media it wont allow the roll media, means first priority is for sheet.If sheet path paper sensor dusty or malfunction, printer will say "remove paper from sheet path" even no paper in sheet path..
How to shoot this problem:
You need to clean sheet path sensor located at sheet loading area.(black 'U' shaped part) Applying the pressured air at sensor is the best method to clean.. If problem remain you need to remove the sensor & clean or replace it.
Follow the snaps:
Need to open roll feed right side portion

Canon ipf605 paper error

Here is what I've found out by trial and error.
Paper Roll Won't Load:
    -Usually occurs when the roll is less than 50% full
    -Printer will give the error "paper loaded askew"
    To Correct This:
      - Press and hold Stop until Job Cancel comes up on the
      - Press Menu
      o Scroll Down until Adjust Printer menu comes up
      o Press right side arrow next to OK button
      o Scroll down to Manual Band Adjust and press right side
      arrow again (or select one of the other adjustments)
      - Select Yes and press OK
      - Load paper roll - make sure paper is straight
      - When asked (printer will beep) select Plain Paper and
      press OK
      - Let paper load
      - When printer starts to print press and hold Stop to cancel
      - Paper should now be loaded
      When all else fails load a new roll.
      This would be a temporary solution until the sensor is fixed.

I have a Hp DesignJet 600 plotter. When I turn it on, on the front pannel display I says "CHECK PAPER PATH" plz suggest what can be done.

Hi how are you doing?

If there is a message saying check paper path, then there must be something inside the rollers. CHeck on the back of the printer, on the inside.

Try to load a paper to see if it goes throgh.

After cleaning paper path. Just turn off the printer, and turn it on again.

Hope it Helps,

God Bless You.

Problem with plotter

That sounds like a carrage movment problem. When you load paper the carrage moves from the RHS very quickly. If your carrage is not properly lubricated you will get that fault. Before going further you must switch off and open the cover. Look along the length of the belt (just below on the aluminum) if there ere lots of reddish pieces and a dust like substance it means that your carrage belt will need replacing. If the belt is ok, then move the head to the middle of the machine by hand and apply a drop of thin oil (sewing machine) to either side of the carrage on the bar. Move the head slowly left and right to lubricate the bar. It then should be ok.
Good luck

I have an hp1055cm plotter that is leaving streaks on the page i.e. it makes a clean first pass and on the second pass (as the print progresses)it is like the head does not reach the paper and leaves the...

Configuring the HP1055CM Driver Right click on the icon for the plotter (for WinXP, go to Start -> Printers and Faxes) and select Properties. Make the following changes:
On the tab marked General, click on the Printing Preferences button.
In the window that pops up, select the Paper/Quality tab choose Roll Feed for the Paper Source. Next, click on the Advanced button:
• Under the section called Graphic, click the down arrow next to ICM Method and choose "ICM handled by Host System".
•Under the section on Document Options, there is a section called Postscript Options. Click on the "+", then change "Optimize for Speed" to "Optimize for Portability". Also make sure the "PostScript Language Level" is set to 3.
• In the section Printer Features, set "Scale to:" to "No Change".
• If you wish, under Paper/Output, you can select a default paper size appropriate for the plotter: ARCH E (36in x 48in) seems reasonable. (Note that when you print from an application, you may want to adjust the paper size for your specific plot, and you should also set your document to an appropriate smaller size in the application.)
• Click on OK buttons until you get back to the main window for Properties.
On the properties tab marked Advanced, click on the radio button for Print Directly to Printer.
Also click on the Printing Defaults button, then the Advanced button. If you see a similar set of postscript options like you just went through above, repeat the process to set the ICM method, set postscript options to "Optimize for Portability" and Language Level to 3, change the paper size, and set "Scale to" to no change.
Click on OK buttons until you get back once more to the main window for Properties.
Under the property tab for Device settings, you should change the Output Protocol from ASCII to JPEG. (If there is no JPEG option, select Binary.) It is also helpful to change "Send CTRL-D at end of job" from YES to NO, but that isn't crucial. Under the section marked Installable Options, change the amount of installed memory from "Default" to the closest value below 96 MB, probably 80 MB. (The plotters actually have 96 MB, but since not all of that is available for user jobs, it's better to claim the smaller value. This is still larger than the "default" size, which is about 48 MB.)
Click OK.

HP designjet 430 E Plotter

The reason it could be the main board is that it tells the front panel lights what to do. This seems like a logical problem the printer is having, usually things freeze when internal memory is bad. Surely have the main board replaced. There is a part of the internal programming that it cant get past. Compare it with trying to read a sector of a cd-rom that is scratched.
