Load Media: Media must be re-aligned.

Re-align the media. Instructions ^ User's Guide, chapter 2.

Ready: The plotter is busy with a task or is receiving a file. Wait.

Plain + Error: The current plot is too large and does not fit in memory.

• If the plot is a raster plot, try sending it with a no negative motion RTL command. • If it is a vector plot, try using a driver that performs all the rasterization of the plot in the host computer before sending it to the plotter. (See also ^ chapter 5, § Memory Usage.) • Otherwise, add more memory by installing a DRAM SIMM.

Load Media + Error: Media-load error.

• Cover open during start-up. • Check that the media is aligned and that the correct media size is loaded. Try to load it again. (Tips ^ User's Guide, chapter 4.) • Clear any binding in the media axis. Caution: Do not pull media along the carriage axis - you could break the media-sensor flags. • Are both media-sensor flags installed? • Check for a faulty media sensor. • Check for a faulty or badly connected trailing cable. • Check for a faulty carriage PCA.

Error + Film: One or more of the cartridges is missing, making bad contact or is of the wrong type. Try one or more of the following:

• Remove each cartridge. Ensure that the protective tape has been removed, and look for dirty contacts or wear. Replace each cartridge and run the Black-Cartridge Alignment Procedure. (Instructions ^ User's Guide, chapter 1.) • Replace the trailing cable. • Replace the carriage. • Replace the electronics module.

Error + Ready: There is a problem with the serial interface.

• Ensure the plotter's settings for baud rate and parity are the same as those of the host computer. To check the plotter settings, use the setup sheet. (Instructions ^ User's Guide, chapter 1.) • Also check your interface cable and connections. • This error may also occur if you send a drawing for print using a Windows driver when the Fast Direct to Print option is turned OFF in the Windows Printer Control Panel. You should either turn the Fast Direct to Print option ON, or send the drawing to a file and print the file from the MS-DOS command line through the serial port. • If the host computer is an HP 712 workstation, you may have some problems using baudrates of 19200 and 38400. Check if recent service notes have a solution.

• Check to see if the Plotter or PC is badly configured. • Check for an error in the host computer. • Replace the electronics module.
