  3. Re: Can't clear Broken Bag error on Designjet 4500

    I couldn't see any evidence of past ink leaking when I removed the cover a couple day ago. All the air lines were clean and couldn't see any air in the ink lines on the back but did see a small...
  4. Can't clear Broken Bag error on Designjet 4500

    One of the 4500 printers I have came to me with a Broken Bag error (24:10 I think) and it refuses to clear. I've checked the ink supplies and also for ink in any air lines and there is none. I've...

    Re: Any experience with Designjet 4500 printers?

    I used some "MaxPro Rubber Rejuvenator" spray. Sprayed it on the rollers while they were turning, let it sit for about 30 seconds and the problem is gone. Switches paper rolls now very reliably. ...

    Thanks Kiran. Just placed an order for both the Rubber Renu and also a spray can of platten/roller cleaner. Amazon shows mostly good reviews for both products but must use care when applying so an...

    Re: Any experience with Designjet 4500 printers?

    There is definetly something that turns the roll backwards to keep tension on the paper but it feels spring loaded rather than a motor. I disabled the mechanical device on the tensioner and it lets...

    Great. That will give me another way to look at this thing.

    I have the service manual so will run those tests next.

    Re: Any experience with Designjet 4500 printers?

    Printer is new to me so don't know if it's been removed or not.

    Tried a couple different types from regular 20# bond to thicker photo but same result. Have yet to try some 42" wide to see if...

    Re: Any experience with Designjet 4500 printers?

    I've run into that problem with dirty rollers on smaller printers where paper dust gets on the rollers and they lose their grip. Cleaning is free so I'll try that first.

    Thanks!

    Any experience with Designjet 4500 printers?

    Seem to be having trouble with the lower roll loading on the Designjet 4500. If there is a lot of slack in the paper it loads just fine but a soon as the slack tightens the paper doesn't move...

    Re: Designjet 510, broken latch

    Kiran is correct on this. I've tried it. I ended up having to cut off the tubes from the barb as close as possible (was flushing the ink out of the tubes) and then put the tubes back on the barb...

    To end this project, I decided to just part out this printer rather than investing any more time/money. If anyone needs parts, let me know by PM. Except for the ink supply station. Don't trust...

    Re: Designjet T1300 Ink issue

    I had a T790 that kept giving me fits like that. Bought a new cartridge and it registered the date as 12-31-1969, a Unix thing. This one explanation I've found:

    [Jamming] Re: HPDJ 5500 Check paper path 1 message.

    I believe it. There are a lot of these machines still running out there. This one and the 500/800 series printers are the longest lasting printers I've seen.

    I have a 5000PS 60" that I bought...

    [Jamming] Re: HPDJ 5500 Check paper path 1 message.

    Yes, you'll want to be sure the encoder is running through the carriage, not behind it.

    Did it ever work correctly since the belt was changed? If not, the encoder may not be properly placed in...

    [Jamming] Re: HPDJ 5500 Check paper path 1 message.

    Have you had a chance to take a good look at the spindle on the motor? Sometimes they get filled with belt debris and it throws that error. I think I would remove both left and right covers and do...

    Re: Diagnose my printhead problem

    Love those old 1050C printers. I have a couple.

    Looking at the pictures, it looks like the printhead is giving up. Cleaning might work for a little while.

    Also, check on the back of the...

    Afraid not. It 's only a 24" so not sure I want to put much into it. It's still waiting for new info on how to repair.

    Was it doing this before the belt and encoder strip change?
