lens cover ' Users Guide, Chapter 10 (Lens Maintenance).
Troubleshooting Media Jams/Printhead Crashes
The failure modes “media jam” and “head crash” are grouped together
because in many cases a media jam causes the media to lift up into the
carriage path and cause a head crash, thus causing many media jam
failures to be reported as head crashes.
1 Did the media jam occur when loading media?
D
If the client has had media jams, it is common for pieces of media to
get stuck in the media path. Clear the media path.
2 Is the customer using non-HP media?
D
1-10
The use of non-HP media can easily be the cause of media jams and
head crashes (especially head crashes because HP media is specially
formulated to avoid cockle, one of the primary causes of head
crashes). If the media is not HP approved, advise the customer to use
HP media and check to see if the problem now solved.
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
Troubleshooting
3 Is the client using Best Mode on Coated Media in high humidity?
In this particular case, head crashes could occur due to worst casing.
Recommend a change of media, print mode, or humidity conditions.
4 What is the Firmware Revision? (Only applicable to HP DesignJets
2500CP and 2000CP)
Must be A02.01 or more recent. If not, upgrade.
Explanation - In earlier releases of firmware a media jam/head
crash can be caused at the start of a plot. This can occur in the
“POME” pen alignment or closed loop color calibration, because
the leading edge of the media is brought back very close to the
Media Separator edge. If the edges cross, the media can lift up
when it is advanced, causing a media jam or head crash. It is more
likely to occur the more curled the media is.
5 Check the Media Separator (Only applicable to HP DesignJets
2500CP and 2000CP)
For units fabricated before Serial Numbers C4703A ESA7C04586 and
C4704A ESA7C10343. If the Media Separator is detaching do not
stick it down again, as it will detach again. Also, never reposition a
Media Separator, because it has an extremely tight positioning
tolerance. For Media Separators that are lifting off the Overdrive
Assembly, replace the entire Overdrive Assembly.
Explanation - The previous adhesive used under the Media
Separator can detach from the Overdrive Assembly. New
Overdrive Assemblies use a much better adhesive – it can be
easily differentiated from the old adhesive because it is white
instead of transparent. The Media Separator should never be
repositioned; it has an extremely tight tolerance. If it is too far
from the linear blade it can cause media crashes against the
Linear Blade. If it is too close it can cause media jams between the
leading edges of the media and the Media Separator.
6 Did the failure occur at the end of the media roll?
There are two known failure modes in this case. One is with Vinyl
media, in which case the end of the media was glued too strongly to the
roll, which can cause a head crash. The other is with Coated Media,
where some rolls have the final edge of the media bent in a “C” shape
which could cause a head crash when passing under the carriage. In
both cases the problem has been fixed and a new roll of media should
solve it.

Explanation - For a unit fabricated before September of 1997 the
clutch could cause intermittent media jams. Refer to the applicable
Service Note. For a printer fabricated before July 1997 the linear
blade could be too high, causing media jams.
8 Check for missing/blocked starwheels or starwheel mount assemblies.

Explanation - These parts can lead to media jams if missing or
blocked.

The refill station positioning must be checked afterwards since it is
affected. The refill station can be adjusted to accommodate the change
in Printhead Height. The specification for Printhead Height is 1.2 1.4mm. Printhead Heights higher than this can adversely affect print
quality.
What can I do if the Printer does not Power ON?
1 Check that the power cord is connected correctly.
2 Check that the Flash SIMM is installed correctly in the correct slot (the
first slot from the left) at the back of the Printer.
3 On the Main PCA, in the Electronics Module, there are other fuses that
are not controlled by the firmware so that, if they are burnt, they can
cause a no-power-up problem. It is recommended to check the
resistance of the motors in a no-power-up situation before
installing a new Electronics Module. If you have a short in one
motor, you will burn the new Electronics Module.
4 Try to disconnect all the cables, apart from the Front Panel Cable, from
the Electronics Module and then try to power ON the Printer again. If
nothing appears on the front-panel display, then replace the Electronics
Module ' page 8-6. If the Printer does Power On with the cables
disconnected, then the problem must be with another component of the
Printer. To find the faulty component, power OFF the Printer and
connect one of the cables and power ON again. Once the faulty
component is connected, it will not allow the Printer to power ON. This
component should then be replaced.
What can I do if the Line Sensor has Problems Detecting Media?
1 Excessive ink deposits on the drive-roller surface can fool the sensor by
reflecting the light. Clean the drive-roller ' page 9-3.

What is the Ink System?
For each of the four colors of ink in your printer’s ink system, there are
three separate components that work together as a system. The components
for each ink color are color-coded to help you install them correctly.
Ink Cartridge
The ink cartridges are a large-capacity ink supply from which the
printheads are refilled whenever the ink volume in the printhead drops
below a minimum level.
Printhead
The printhead has a 600 dpi thermal inkjet head for firing ink droplets onto
the media and a reservoir which holds enough ink for a large number of
prints. The actual number of prints between refills depends on the size and
type of images you are printing.
Printhead Cleaner
The printer uses the printhead cleaner to clean and maintain the printhead
to ensure the best possible image quality, and to seal the printhead when it
is not in use to prevent it from drying out.
How Do I Troubleshoot the Ink System?
1 If the error message IInk system IncompltI appears on the
front-panel it means that the ink cartridge valve has been disconnected,
so:

2 Reinstall the Ink Delivery System as follows:
1 Remove the four printheads from the carriage. On the front panel you
will see the four squares representing the printheads flashing.
2 Clean the electrical contacts using the Ink Cleaner Part Number
C6247A.
3 Reinstall all the printheads, one by one, checking on the front panel
that the squares representing the reinstalled printheads are steady.

DO NOT INSERT THE NEXT PRINTHEAD UNTIL THE
PRINTER HAS ACCEPTED THE CURRENT PRINTHEAD.
D If, even after the electrical contacts have been cleaned, the
printhead is not accepted REPLACE THE COMPLETE INK
SYSTEM (Printhead/Head Cleaner/Ink Cartridge) for this color.
D If, after inserting a NEW Ink System, the printhead is not
accepted, the problem may be with the printer. Replace the
Carriage Assembly ' 8-42.
4 If you have reinserted the four printheads and the printer has
accepted them continue reinstalling the head cleaners.
5 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridge valves, one by one, checking
on the front panel that the squares representing the reinstalled ink
cartridge are steady.

D If, after reinserting the NEW Ink System, the ink cartridge is not
accepted, the problem may be with the printer. Make sure that the
Refill Assembly cable is not damaged and is correctly connected to
the Interconnect PCA. If the cable is correctly connected and is not
damaged then replace the Refill Assembly ' page 8-55.

Does the Customer have Mid-Print Refill Problems in
HP DesignJets 3500CP/3000CP?
New Refill Features in HP DesignJet CP Series (in the case of
DesignJets 2X00CP, the firmware release must be at least A.04.05)
1 Adaptive trigger. The printer looks for low density places to stop and
refill in the print where it will be less noticeable. This feature becomes
active when 75% of the ink in the printhead has been used up. RIP’s
may have disabled this feature, or enabled it at a different ink level.
2 Slightly more useable ink for Imaging printheads. There is an
additional 10% of usable ink.
3 New refill type selections. User can select from three different refill
types through the front panel (Device Setup / Refill=). RIP’s may
support these selections, too:
Type A is similar to what HP DesignJet 2xxxCP does at refill.
Type B finishes the print to a clean edge before refilling.
Type C does a quicker, more frequent refill.
The Default type makes the correct selection for HP media types.
When using non-HP medias, the following settings are probably best:
Glossy - B or C
Coated - A or B
Backlit - B or A
4 Additional printhead servicing and warming activities are done during
refills, which improves the quality over the 2xxxCP. The user may notice
some new servicing (i.e. noises) at mid-page refills.
5 “Big print” feature. When a refill happens during a large print, the
printer will automatically refill again at the end of the print, to make
sure the maximum ink is available for the next print, which might also
be expected to be large. The user is unlikely to notice this difference in
behavior, since the printer often refills at the end of large pages.
Working with refill problems
General tips:
Check media type is loaded correctly.
Check refill type is set to default.
Try a higher image quality setting for better performance.
Check user’s expectations - refill performance is not always “perfect”, but
almost always is acceptable for poster-type applications. Photo medias
are the most sensitive to defects.

Refill Avoidance Tips
Printer:
1 Try to “top off” printheads before large prints with “Refill Now” option in
Front Panel (Image Quality / Printhead Service / Refill now). If a refill
happened at the end of the last print (usually happens with big prints),
this is not necessary.
2 If you have just canceled a print, you may need to use the “refill now”
option to guarantee the maximum ink available for the next print.
Print Composition Tips:
1 Don’t try to nest more than 15 ft^2 of prints.
2 If the print is lighter in color at one end, rotate print so that it is the last
part to be printed. Refills are less noticeable in light prints.
3 If possible, lighten background colors or use a gradient in place of a solid
fill.
4 Textured areas make refills less noticeable than “flat” color areas.
How Do I Clean the Electrical Contacts?
The problem.
The printer fires drops by sending electrical signals from the printhead
carriage to the printhead through the electrical contacts present on the
carriage and on the printheads. The problem is that when you load the
printheads into their stalls, sometimes some ink goes over the carriage
electrical contacts, and when the printhead is installed over the printhead
electrical contacts. When the printer prints, some ink goes to the bottom of the
electrical contacts. This causes electrical continuity problems that can be fixed
very easily.
The solution.
A new tool has been created especially to clean the electrical contacts and is
called the Ink Cleaner (Part Number C6247A - includes the instructions).

Introduction
This chapter explains how to use the built-in Service Tests (Diagnostics) and
what to do if the tests fail. If possible, always perform a Service Test on the
component that you are about to replace, just to make sure that is the
component that has failed. If the test on that component passes, there is no
need to replace it.
Diagnostics - Self Test
Initialization Sequences
Whenever the the Printer is switched on, it automatically performs a series
of internal self tests and mechanical initialization sequences. If the Printer
is switched ON in Service Mode, the front-panel display will show a code
next to the message “Initializing”. These codes refer to the part which the
printer is testing at that moment. If any of these parts fail, a system error
will appear and you should consult the System Error Codes Chapter 2.

3 Use the Up and Down arrow keys to show the values of the different
colors.
The values shown on the front-panel for all Printheads should be 0. If
a different value is shown then that Printhead has a continuity
problem.
Try the following to solve the problem:
1 DO NOT replace any parts. This will cause extra problems.
Remove the Printheads and clean the flex contacts on the Carriage
and the Printheads. Reseat the Printheads and try the test again.
2 Even if one of the Printheads failed the Printhead Continuity test, you
must remove all the Printheads from the Carriage and try installing
them one by one. Before installing each Printhead, check the continuity
of all four Printheads. The front-panel should display a 3ffff / 3fff
result for each Printhead that is not inserted and the original values
(the value that was displayed before the Printhead was removed) for the
Printheads when they are inserted. If you get a value that is different
than 3ffff / 3fff when the Printheads are removed then you must
perform step 1 again. If you get the same results after repeating step 1,
then the carriage is damaged. Replace the Carriage Assembly page
8-42. When you insert each Printhead, the values should change only
for that Printhead. If the values of other Printheads also change, then
the problem is the Printhead itself and not the actual Printer. In this
case you must replace the complete Ink Delivery System of the color that
failed.
3 If you continue getting the original value (the value that was displayed
before the Printhead was first removed) then you must replace the

Introduction
Whenever a Print Quality problem appears, it is advisable to print the
Image Quality Print to help diagnose the problem. The Image Quality Print
will help you differentiate between possible printhead errors and other
problems such as incorrect front-panel selection, driver or RIP configuration
or mechanical problems.
To achieve the best performance from the printer, advise the
customer to only use genuine HP accessories and supplies, whose
reliability and performance have been thoroughly tested to give
trouble-free performance and best-quality prints.
Using the Image Quality Print
1 The size of the Image Quality Print is A3 and B so you must use media
(roll or sheet) that is this size or larger.
Do not use 3M Changeable Opaque Imaging media or
equivalent when printing the Image Quality Print.
2 Use the same type of media that the customer was using when the image
quality problem was discovered.
3 Study each of the test patterns in the order listed to determine the type
of image quality problem.
4 If the customer was reporting problems of Image Quality using non-HP
media and after the Image Quality Print test the same quality problems
appear, advise the customer to use genuine HP media. Repeat the Image
Quality Print test using genuine HP Media (Do not use 3M Changeable
Opaque Imaging media).
Producing the Image Quality Print
1 Select the Image Quality Print from the Utilities / Service tests menu,
then press Enter to print the test.
2 The printer will print out a series of images named Test 1 thru to Test 5.
The Image Quality Test print looks like this:

Analyzing the Image Quality Print
The Image Quality Print will contain five patterns as follows:
1 Print-head Warm Up (See below).
2 Image Quality Test (See Below).
3 Nozzle Print Test
page 6-13.
4 Color Alignment Quality Test
5 Color Variation Test
page 6-14.
page 6-16.
Test Pattern 1: Printhead Warm-up
This pattern warms-up the printheads, leaving them in a perfect operating
condition. You can ignore this pattern and continue with Test Pattern 2.
Test Pattern 2: Image Quality Test
This test pattern checks for overall image print quality.
If you do not see any problems with the image quality test (similar to the
example shown below), then the printer is functioning correctly. The
problem may be with the RIP, driver, etc. that the customer is using.
Refer to page 6-18 for further information.
If you see image problems in this test pattern then continue with the
following procedures which will help you determine the nature of the
problem.
Print Quality
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
6-7
One of the most common problems that affects the overall image quality is
‘Banding’.
Banding Problems
Banding is when you see repetitive horizontal bands within the printed
image (these may appear as light or dark bands).
Test pattern 2 is printed with four primary colors; black, cyan, magenta
and yellow. The three secondary colors printed are; red, blue and green
which are composed by mixing the primary colors as shown in the table
below:
Secondary Color
Primary Color
Components
Red (R)
Magenta (M) and Yellow (Y)
Blue (B)
Magenta (M) and Cyan (C)
Green (G)
Cyan (C) and (Y)
The main causes of banding are due to:
D
Printheads.
D Media advance.
Banding Caused by Printhead Problems
If test pattern 2 has clear or dark horizontal bands in one or more of the
primary color columns, then several of the secondary color columns will also
have the same type of bands in the same position (but perhaps with less
intensity).
These bands are caused by two types of printhead nozzle failure; either
nozzles not printing, or nozzles misdirected. For further information on
printhead nozzle failures, refer to Test Pattern 3 ' page 6-13.
In the following Example A, several nozzles in the magenta printhead are
not printing. There will be clear repetitive bands (perhaps white) in the
magenta column. Consequently, you will see lower intensity bands in the
same print position in the red (M + Y) and blue (M + C) secondary color
columns.

Banding Problem 1:
Banding in cyan, blue and green columns only, but
more evident in cyan than in blue and green
columns.
Problem Description: This is an indication that the cyan printhead may
require servicing or could be damaged.
Corrective Action:
Refer to Test Pattern 3 page 6-13 to
troubleshoot the Cyan Color.
Banding Problem 2:
Banding in magenta, red and blue columns only,
but more evident in magenta than in red and blue
columns.
Problem Description: This is an indication that the magenta printhead
may require servicing or could be damaged.
Corrective Action:

Banding Problem 3:
Banding in yellow, red and green columns only,
but more evident in yellow than in red and green
columns.
Problem Description: This is an indication that the yellow printhead
may require servicing or could be damaged.
Corrective Action:
Refer to Test Pattern 3 page 6-13 to
troubleshoot the Yellow Color.
Banding Problem 4:
Banding in black column only.
Problem Description: This is an indication that the black printhead may
require servicing or could be damaged.
Corrective Action:
Refer to Test Pattern 3 page 6-13 to
troubleshoot the Black Color.
Banding Caused by Media Advance Problems
Another type of banding is caused by an inaccurate media advance. The
printer prints an image by ‘bands’ or ‘swaths’ which are fixed widths
depending on the advance of the media roller. If the advance of the roller
differs from the theoretical advance, there will be banding (horizontal
repetitive bands along Test Pattern 2) in all the primary and secondary color
columns.
The bands can appear as dark bands, due to a shorter advance of the roller
which causes an overlap, or lighter bands due to a longer advance causing
spaces.
Banding Problem:
Banding in all color columns (see Example B).
Problem Description: The causes are not related to misalignment but
the troubleshooting actions are the same.
Corrective Action:
Refer to Test Pattern 4 page 6-14 to
troubleshoot the problem.
It is also possible that the banding was caused because the customer
was using non-HP media. The performance of the printer can only be
guaranteed if genuine HP media is used.

HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
Image Quality
Example B
Banding Caused by Misalignment
There are two types of misalignment; vertical and horizontal. Refer to Test
Pattern 4 ' page 6-14 for further information.
Misalignment between two primary colors when creating a secondary color
can cause two different effects:
D
If there is horizontal misalignment of the colors, it will create banding.
D If there is vertical misalignment of the colors, it will create gaps or
overlaps between colors (see Example C).
Banding Problem 5:
Black, cyan, magenta and yellow columns are
correct but banding in one, or all of the secondary
color columns.
Problem Description: This is an indication that there is a horizontal
misalignment.
Corrective Action:
Refer to Test Pattern 4 ' page 6-14 to troubleshoot
the problem.
Print Quality
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
6-11
Banding Problem 6:
Different colors visible in the spaces between
some or all of the columns (depending on the color
of the printhead that is misaligned) (see Example
C).
Problem Description: This is an indication of vertical misalignment.
Corrective Action:
Refer to Test Pattern 4 page 6-14 to
troubleshoot the problem.
It is also possible that the banding was caused because the customer
was using non-HP media. The performance of the printer can only be
guaranteed if genuine HP media is used.

Test Pattern 3: Nozzle Print Test
Use this test purely to confirm an error highlighted in Test Pattern 2.
Some of the printhead nozzle problems that you will see in Test Pattern
3 do not mean you will not get perfect image quality results. The printer
has internal corrections that will hide many nozzle defects.
In this test all the 240 nozzles of each printhead are tested. For each of the
4 colors you will see the numbers 10 thru to 240 over the diagonally stepped
lines in increments of 10. These numbers correspond to the nozzle number
that prints each step.
There are two printhead nozzle errors:
Nozzles not printing.
Nozzles misdirected.
Nozzles not printing
There are two ways to see this problem, it is easier to see the error from the
first check.
1 In the top pattern, marked with numbers, if the diagonally stepped lines
are broken in one or more steps it indicates that this specific nozzle(s)
may be blocked and are not printing. White lines will also be visible in
the area fill at both sides of the pattern.
2 Below the top pattern, there is a set of horizontal straight lines. When one
or more nozzles are not printing the corresponding lines will be missing.
Nozzles misdirected
If all the stepped lines are visible in the top pattern, then all the printhead
nozzles are printing. However the nozzles could still be misdirected, possibly
due to some dried ink around the nozzles.
There are two ways to see this problem, it is easier to see the misalignment
from the second check.
3 In the top pattern, marked with numbers, if the diagonally stepped lines
are not equally positioned in every step it indicates that this specific
nozzle(s) may be misdirected.
4 Below the numbered pattern, there is a set of horizontal straight lines.
When one or more nozzles are misdirected there will be unequal spaces
between the corresponding lines.

Printhead check Menu, set to Now to run the
printhead check.
2 From the Utilities / Service tests menu, select
“Recover printheads” to run the printhead
recovery process.
3 Print the Image Quality Print again to see if
there has been any improvement.
4 If there has been no improvement, try
reinstalling the Ink System Components and
print the Image Quality Print again.
5 If the error is still present, replace the Ink
System Components and print the Image
Quality Print again.
6 If the error continues try the following:
D Perform the Electronics Test ' page 4-7.
D Replace the Trailing Cable ' page 8-36.
D Replace the Carriage Assembly ' page 8-42.
Test Pattern 4: Color Alignment Quality Test
This test pattern is to check the color alignment, and produces 6 patterns
each with 2 different primary colors. In each pattern you will see primary
color circles. If there is misalignment between the primary colors the
composite color will be present in one part of the circle and white will be
visible at the opposite side of the circle.
There are two types of misalignment (see Example D):
D
Horizontal – when the misalignment is in the horizontal axis.
D Vertical – when the misalignment is in the vertical axis.

Only replace one component at a time and
check if the problem has gone before
replacing another component. Using this
procedure you will be able to determine
exactly which component failed.
Test Pattern 5: Color Variation Test
This test produces four boxes; black, blue, cyan and yellow. In each box
there are three horizontal bands, the two outer bands are 100% shade, the
inner band is shaded from 100% scaling to 75%.
The purpose of this test is to determine at what percent the middle shading
becomes visible from the two outer bands. The best way to do this is to cover
the box with a piece of paper and slide the paper horizontally across the box.
Stop as soon as you see a different shade in the middle box. You can then
determine the percentage scaling from the figure at the top of the box.

No Printing Defects Found in the Image Quality Print
If all the test patterns from the Image Quality Print are correct and you still
experience print quality problems, here are some of the more likely causes
to check:
The print mode used in your printer is incorrect (this is defined by the
printer’s front-panel menu selections).
Non-HP driver.
The RIP (If you are using one).
The software applications you are using.
Refer to the User’s Guide for further information on how to configure the
system with correct settings.
Media
Always make sure that the customer is using the appropriate media for the
required image and that it is consistent with the software application being
used. To ensure color accuracy and print quality performance of the printer,
only media types that have been certified for the printer should be used.
Use of non-HP media or HP media not certified for the printer may
significantly reduce the color and print quality of the required images. For
details of HP media, refer to the User’s Guide or the Media Guide for the
HP DesignJet CP Printers.
To have accurate colors, the media settings must match the type of
media loaded in the printer.
If the customer is using non-HP media with HP drivers, the colors in
the required print may not be accurate. Advise the customer to use
HP media if they want to improve the accuracy of the colors.

Print Quality Problems
PQ Problem:
Dark Streaks at edges of page (Icicles)
Printheads Affected: Imaging Inks (Not UV resistant)
Problem Description: At one or both edges of print, thin dark lines
appear, which are a few millimeters thick at the
base, and may extend several centimeters into the
print. They usually occur in heavy density prints.
Sometimes ink smearing in the print margins is
also seen.
Cause of Problem:
Excess ink on the printhead surface during
printing.
Corrective Action:
Switch to a higher print quality mode. They tend
to get less ink on the surface of the printhead. If
you are printing on non-HP coated paper, if it
cockles (gets wavy when printed on), this may be
making the problem worse.
Only Applicable to HP DesignJet 3500CP
PQ Problem:

Corrective Action:
Banding at mid-page refill
All
Solution will be different depending on the type of
problem:
1 Light band at refill - Band of 0.4 inches, all
colors light, sharp edges ' cover was opened on
printer while printing. This causes the
remainder of a swath to not be printed, or to be
printed incorrectly.
D
Solution - Don’t touch printer while printing.
2 Wider band, single color missing, sharp bottom
edge to defect ' printhead ran out of ink prior
to refill.
D
Print Quality
Solution - Check Ink Cartridge and replace
if empty. If still plenty of ink left, printer is
not refilling correctly, which could be either
a cartridge or a printer problem.
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
6-19
3 Band with sharp top edge, single or multiple
colors missing ' printhead did not start
printing correctly after refill.
D
Solution - Slight color variation is normal,
particularly on glossy medias. The defect
should not normally be visible beyond
0.5-1.0 meter viewing distance. If a more
severe defect occurs, this usually indicates
that the printheads are dirty. Performing a
printhead recovery may fix this problem.
These types of problems may occur more
frequently when printing at low humidity
and temperature.
4 Missing single row of dots within 0.4I of refill '
there is nozzle not functioning on the printhead.
The printer cannot hide nozzles within 0.4” of a
refill if you are using a type B refill.
5 Improving color variation seen at refill.
D
Solution - If customer is printing on coated
paper, check that they have indeed loaded it
as Coated or Heavy Coated media. If not,
they should load the paper as the correct
type, or select Refill Type A in the front
panel menus (Device Setup / Refill Type
/ Type A).
6 Improving haze seen at refill.
D
6-20
Solution - Haze is the result of an ink-media
interaction that is also dependent upon time,
humidity, and temperature. Printing in very
dry conditions will increase haze problems.
Refill Type B will usually give better haze
results than Type A ( a thin line instead of
1 cm band of haze). On some medias, Refill
Type C may reduce or eliminate haze
problems. The Refill Type can be selected by
the user through the front panel menus,
Device Setup / Refill Type / Default is
the normal setting, which chooses
automatically between Refill Types A, B or C
based upon Media type selection and Quality
level selection. The User’s Guide contains a
table with the default selections.

PQ Problem:
Color spots in print
Printheads Affected: All
Problem Description: Small (usually 1-3 mm) dots of color showing up in
unexpected places on the print. Dots often show
more strike-through on coated paper than normal
printing.
Cause of Problem:
Fiber on printhead directly over some nozzles is
catching ink drops, then dripping onto print.
Corrective Action:
Usually the problem goes away when the
printheads are wiped at the end of the print. If it
persists, a printhead check or printhead recovery
will give it another try. If a user is having a lot of
problems with drips, it may be related to paper
dust from their media, or to a dusty environment
they are printing in.
PQ Problem:
Ghost image at top of page, first plot after pause
Printheads Affected: Imaging Inks
Problem Description: Light spots in imaged media matching up to
mechanical features inside the printer (bail,
pinch-arm assemblies).
Cause of Problem:
Equilibration rate differences between media and
environment in areas that are “protected” by parts
of the printer.
Corrective Action:
Advance a little bit of media before the first print
of the day. “Move Media” option in the front panel
is an easy way to do this.

PQ Problem:
Missing/ Light Blocks of color in a print
Printheads Affected: All
Problem Description: Small well defined areas of light color, 0.4 inches
tall, with a 4mm half–colored region on either
side.
Corrective Action:
Solution will be different depending on the type of
problem:
1 Cover opened, or cover sensor not making good
contact. If the user is present, usually a “Close
Window to Continue” message will show on the
front-panel if this is happening, or the printer’s
carriage will be slowing down in the middle of
a printing pass.
Solution - Check that covers are all shut.
Wiggle covers with printer idle to see if this
triggers any front panel messages. If so,
the cover sensors need adjustment.
2 Intermittent opens/shorts in printhead.
Printhead is shorting, probably due to ink in
the electrical contacts. As the liquid short
heats up, it may dry out and the printhead will
start functioning properly again.
Solution - Check printer carriage and
printhead electrical contacts for dried ink.
Clean if dirty. If printhead still fails with
clean contacts, replace IDS.
3 Broken trace in carriage trailing cable.
Solution - Replace the Trailing Cable or the
Carriage Assembly.

out of ink, wasting media, possibly for several
plots. 2 - Printer reports out of ink as Printhead
Failure message.
Cause of Problem:
Out of Ink is determined when the following
conditions are true:
1 Ink Level indicator shows low AND
2 Six or more nozzles are missing in a Printhead
Check OR
3 The temperature of the printhead rises to 15
degrees above its normal operating
temperature.
Corrective Action:
6-24
If the ink level indicator is not showing low, (2) or
(3) will result in a Printhead Failure message.
The Printhead Check usually does a more reliable
job of checking for Out of Ink conditions. Setting the
printhead check to more frequent use will reduce the
amount of wasted media and ink. This is especially
recommended if the printer is being used
unattended. The printhead check does take about a
minute and a half to perform, and uses a thin strip
of media.

Introduction
This chapter is a step by step guide to the removal and installation of the
key components in the printer. You may find it useful to tick off the steps as
they are performed. Use the illustration at the end of each procedure to
identify the parts referred to in the text.
The procedures appear in order of removal. So the whole machine can be
stripped down by starting at the beginning of this chapter and working
through the subsequent procedures.
Before using this chapter to remove and install a new component,
always make sure that you have performed the relevant service test
from Chapter 4. If the test passes you will not need to replace the
component.

Safety Precautions
(Safety symbols
Immediately after the table of contents.)
Review WARNING and CAUTION symbols and instructions before you
service the plotters. Follow these warnings and cautions for your protection
and to avoid damaging the plotter.
Serious shock hazard leading to death or injury
may result if you do not take the following
precautions:
Ensure that the ac power outlet (mains) has a
protective earth (ground) terminal.
Switch the plotter off, and disconnect it from the
power source prior to performing any
maintenance.
Prevent water or other liquids from running onto
electrical components or circuits, or through
openings in the module.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Precautions
To prevent damage to the plotter circuits from high-voltage electrostatic
discharge (ESD):
1. Do not wear clothing that is subject to static build-up.
2. Do not handle integrated circuits (ICs) in carpeted areas.
3. Do not remove an IC or a printed circuit assembly (PCA) from its
conductive foam pad or conductive packaging until you are ready to
install it.
4. Ground (earth) your body while disassembling and working on the
plotter.
5. After removing a cover from the plotter, attach an earthing (ground) lead
between the PCA common and earth ground. Touch all tools to earth
ground to remove static charges before using them on the plotter.
6. After removing any PCA from the plotter, place it on a conductive foam
pad or into its conductive packaging to prevent ESD damage to any ICs
on the PCA.

Preventive Maintenance
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
9-1
Moisture on the Printer
Users should use the Printer in an environment between 5% and 95%
relative humidity. To recover from moisture condensation, turn the Printer
Off, and, using the main roller as a reference, wait until the Printer is
completely dry before using it again.
Noisy Carriage Bushing
To prevent noisy movement of the carriage, remove aluminum or dust
particles from the bushing at the back of the carriage, and from the slider
path along which the bushing moves.
Belt Swelling
To prevent new belts from swelling incorrectly, keep them in their bags with
dissicant until you need to install them.
Cleaning the Printer
To maintain the Printer in good operating condition, keep it free of dust
accumulation, ink, and other contamination. Cleaning intervals are
determined by the Printer environment and by the types of Printer supplies
used.
WARNING
Disconnect the Printer from the power source prior
to performing any cleaning. DO NOT allow liquid to
run on to electrical components or circuits, or
through openings in the enclosure, as this can
create a shock hazard leading to death or injury.
General Cleaning
Proper general cleaning should include the following:
1 Blow away dust accumulation with compressed air if available.
2 Clean the outer surface of the Printer with a damp sponge or cloth. Use
a mild soap and water solution if necessary. Do not use abrasive
cleaners.
3 Wipe the Printer dry with a soft lint-free cloth.

Preventive Maintenance
Cleaning the Drive Roller
The drive roller cleaning procedure should be performed only
by HP trained personnel: otherwise personal injury may occur.
If ink is spilled on the drive roller, remove the ink. Due to the ink’s
reflectance, ink on the roller can disrupt the Printer’s edge-sensing function.
To remove any ink from the roller, perform the following procedure:
1 Make sure the printer is switched OFF from the power switch on the
back of the printer and not from the standby button on the front of the
printer.
2 Hold the UP and ENTER keys down and switch the printer ON. Wait
until the message “Status/Initializing” is displayed on the front-panel
before releasing the UP and ENTER keys.
3 Once the message “Status/Ready” is displayed on the front-panel, press
the Enter key.
4 Use the Arrow keys to scroll to the “Utilities” menu display and press
the Enter button. Make sure that you are in the Full menu mode
because otherwise you will not be able to access the “Service Tests”
submenu.
5 Use the Arrow keys to scroll to the “Service Tests” menu display and
press the Enter button.
6 Use the Arrow keys to scroll to the “Diagnostics” menu display and
press the Enter button.
7 Using the Up Arrow button, scroll to reach the following display and
press Enter:

8 The “Unload Media” message is displayed on the front-panel. Remove
the media (if loaded).
9 The “Move Roller” message is displayed on the front-panel. Use the Up
Arrow to rotate the drive roller clockwise and the Down Arrow to
rotate the drive roller counter-clockwise.
10 Open the window and apply any common household cleaning solution
(water based only) to a soft, lint-free rag and apply it to the drive roller
surface while it is rotating. Thoroughly clean the roller surface. Also
make sure that you clean the mark encoder on the left side of the driver
roller.
11 Press Previous when you have completed the cleaning procedure. The
“D1500 Done” message is displayed on the front-panel.

Cleaning the Electrical Contacts?
The problem.
The printer fires drops by sending electrical signals from the printhead
carriage to the printhead through the electrical contacts present on the
carriage and on the printheads. The problem is that when you load the
printheads into their stalls, sometimes some ink goes over the carriage
electrical contacts, and when the printhead is installed over the printhead
electrical contacts. When the printer prints, some ink goes to the bottom of the
electrical contacts. This causes electrical continuity problems that can be fixed
very easily.
The solution.
A new tool has been created especially to clean the electrical contacts and is
called the Ink Cleaner (Part Number C6247A - includes the instructions).
Scheduled Maintenance
In some segments of the printer market, the customer tends to print more
than the maximum number of prints that the throughput allows, exceeding
by far the limit of the design. When this happens the customer runs into
print quality problems and continuous Printer failures.
The purpose of scheduled preventive maintenance is to avoid these failures ensuring a good performance during all the product life.
Level of Printer Usage
Normal printer use means an average of 15 image prints with an area of
0.76 m2/print (8 ft.2/print) per day. If the prints are smaller than this, the
number of pages per day can be higher.
Under normal usage conditions, it will be approximately 5 years before the
printer needs maintenance. If the printer is used more than the normal
usage conditions, then it will need maintenance service much more
frequently.
One of the EEROM counters is assigned to counting the number of swaths.
When the printer exceeds 7,000,000 passes (HP DesignJets
2500CP/2000CP) or 6,000,000 passes (HP DesignJets 3500CP/300CP), the
front panel displays the following message:
“Maintenance Advised”
The Service Print also conveys the usage information, and it is accessible by
the user.
Preventive Maintenance
HP DesignJet CP Series printers
9-5
Once the maintenance advised message is displayed, the preventive
maintenance kit must be used to replace the most worn parts of the printer.
Use the Removal and Installation Chapter of this Service Manual as a guide
to replace the necessary parts.
After the preventive maintenance is done the Customer Engineer must
reset the maintenance counter by entering the Service Calibrations Menu
and performing the Maintenance Calibration page 5-19. All other internal
counters must also be reset by entering the Service Tests Menu and
performing the Reset Counters test page 4-33.
Preventive Maintenance Kit - Part Number C4704-60284 (Only
Applicable to HP DesignJets 2500CP/2000CP)
Preventive Maintenance Kit - Part Number C4723-60141 (Only
Applicable to HP DesignJets 3500CP/3000CP)
Y-axis Maintenance Parts
In addition to the wearing of the Y-axis motor, the friction in this area can
increase due to the accumulation of ink particles and dust from the media or
the atmosphere in the vicinity of the slider rods.
The Y-axis maintenance parts include the items necessary to clean the
slider rods properly, and a lubricant to apply onto the rods.
The most important parts to keep clean are the upper and internal
sides of the rods.

This configuration is based on a DesignJet 2000CP or 3000C connected to
an external Fiery RIP, together forming the 2800CP or 3800CP Units.
Printed Circuit Assemblies (PCA)
The printer contains a system of several PCA and cabling which link the
various sub systems. The PCA system consists of the following:
Power Supply Unit(PSU): This is connected directly to the mains supply.
It provides 35v and 26v to the rest of the electrical system.
Main PCA: The controller PCA. It contains the I/O connectors for
connection to the host (MAC, PC or network) which provides the data to
be printed. The processing of this data is performed by the digital
system, the processor, the control ASIC and the memory. The processed
data is then sent to the carriage and the printheads via the writing
system ASIC, while at the same time the motors and the other systems
are controlled by the periphery control ASIC.
Carriage PCA: Connected to the main PCA via the trailing cable. The
printhead data and power comes from the main PCA. The Carriage PCA
contains two ASICs for driving the four printheads. Also on the carriage
PCA are Analogue to Digital Converters (ADCs). These monitor the
printheads, the temperature and humidity sensors and the printhead
voltages. This information is fed back to the main PCA, enabling control of
the printheads over the expected range of environmental conditions.
Additionally the Y-axis encoder signals are sent to the main PCA via the
carriage PCA.
Front Panel Assembly: This provides the user interface to the machine.
It is connected directly to the main PCA. The front panel assembly
consists of the Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD), a push button
keyboard and light emitting diodes (LEDs).
Functional Overview
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
10-3
Service Station Interconnect: This small PCA provides connectivity
between the main PCA and the sensors and stepper motors on the right
hand side. It is located underneath the service station.
Refill Station Interconnect: This small PCA provides connectivity
between the main PCA and the sensors and stepper motors on the left
hand side. It is located on the left hand side plate.
Y-Axis Assembly
The Y-axis Assembly provides accurate left and right motion to the
printheads. It aligns the printheads to the refill assembly and the service
station. The Y-axis assembly contains the following:
Carriage Assembly.
Y-axis Belt.
Y-axis Belt Tensioner Holder.
Y-axis Motor Assembly.
Encoder Strip.
Trailing Cable
Carriage
The carriage assembly is installed onto slider rods with three bushings,
these are located underneath the carriage assembly. The carriage assembly
holds the four printheads.
It warms the printheads and fires the nozzles.
It regulates the distance between the printheads and the media by
means of a screw and nut system located at the rear.
It also contains the carriage PCA, temperature and air humidity sensors,
the line sensor, encoder strip sensor and the trailing cable. The carriage
assembly also pulls the media cutter across the media.
Y-axis belt and Y-axis belt tensioner
The Y-axis belt is secured to the carriage assembly by routing it through a
labyrinth located under the carriage assembly. The Y-axis belt is tensioned
with a spring and wedge clip system located at the right side of the printer.
The belt is driven by the Y-axis motor assembly
Y-axis motor assembly
The Y-axis motor assembly is secured to the slider rods on the left side of the
printer and contains a dc motor. The grounding of the encoder strip is
provided by a metal strip which is secured to the Y-axis motor assembly.
10-4
HP DesignJet CP Series printers
Functional Overview
Encoder Strip
The encoder strip is used by the carriage Assembly as a reference point. The
carriage assembly sensor reads windows in the encoder strip. This enables
the carriage assembly to know exactly where it is on the Y-axis assembly.
Trailing cable
The trailing cable consists of three ribbon cables. There are 32 conductors in
each cable, however conductor number 1 and 32 are not used, as they can be
broken when removing or installing. The three cables are all strapped
together, but are misaligned to make them easier to connect to the carriage
assembly. One end of the trailing cable is printed with red lines. These show
the engineer which end of the trailing cable to install into the carriage
assembly.
Service Station Assembly
The Service Station is housed inside the right hand cover. At the top of the
Service Station is the printhead cleaner carriage. This assembly contains
four printhead cleaners (one for each printhead). Printhead cleaners are
disposable cassettes which maintain the condition of the printheads.
The main functions of the Service Station are:
Move the Printhead Cleaner Carriage to the different positions needed to
perform the maintenance tasks on the printheads.
Enable the change of the printhead cleaners by the customer.
Press caps on the printhead cleaners against the printheads with
sufficient force to assure a perfect seal.
Move the wipers on the printhead cleaners with a minimum speed to
clean the printheads.
Primer Assembly
The Primer Assembly applies a vacuum to the printhead. It is a
sub-assembly of the Service Station Assembly. It has two chambers (one
larger than the other). Air is moved from one chamber to the other by a
motor, this results in a vacuum which is applied to the printhead for
maintenance purposes.
Refill Assembly
The Refill Assembly is housed inside the left hand cover. It refills all four
printheads simultaneously when the ink in any of the printheads fall below
a certain threshold. Ink is moved from the ink cartridges to the printheads
via four tubes. The ink is sucked up the four tubes to valves in the Refill
Assembly by air pressure. This is controlled by the raising and lowering of
the ink cartridges, which is done by the Elevator Assembly.
Functional Overview
HP DesignJet CP Series Printers
10-5
Elevator Assembly
The Elevator Assembly is located under the Refill Assembly. Its function is
to raise and lower the four ink cartridges. The Elevator Assembly is raised
and lowered by three cams and a stepper motor.
When the Elevator is in the up position it causes negative air pressure in
the Refill Assembly. This has the effect of drawing ink from the ink
cartridges into the printheads.
When the Elevator is in the down position the air pressure is stabilized.
The middle position enables the removal and installation of the four ink
cartridges.
X-Axis Assembly
The X-axis assembly is located on the right hand side of the printer and
contains a dc motor. This turns the drive roller via a worm drive and a helical
gear.
Electronics Module
Most of the electronics used by the printer are located in the electronics
module. This enables the electronics to be repaired by simple removing the
whole module, and replacing it with a new one. A new electronics module
consists of the following:
Main PCA
Power Supply Unit (PSU)
Cooling Fan
Components which are not supplied with a new electronics module but are
located inside the module are:
Hard Disk Drive (Only for HP DesignJet 2500CP/3500CP printer)
MIO - Supports LAN connectivity
Flash SIMMs (firmware)
RAM SIMMs (memory modules)

HP DesignJet CP Series printers
Functional Overview
Stepper Motors
Three six pin connectors connect three stepper motors on the left hand side
to the refill interconnect PCA:
The Bail stepper motor lifts the bail assembly during paper loading
During printhead refill the Elevator stepper motor moves the elevator
assembly up and down.
The Refill stepper motor moves the refill assembly to engage the valves.
Three six pin connectors connect three stepper motors on the right hand
side to the service station interconnect PCA:
Two stepper motors move the service station forward and backward and
up and down.
The primer stepper motor drives the primer assembly.
Sensors
Line Sensor
The line sensor is located on the carriage assembly. The functions of the line
sensor are:
Detect and measure lines when performing the accuracy calibration.
Detect and measure lines when performing the printhead alignment.
Detect the media width and skew during media loading.
Detect the position of the drive roller by reading a mark located on the
side of the drive roller.
Checks each nozzle is operating correctly.
Detect the amount of ink that a printhead has to spit in order to reach
the reference colour.
Performs the X-axis calibration
Other sensors located on the carriage PCA are the temperature and
humidity sensors and the encoder strip sensor.
Cover Sensors
There are two mechanical sensors located on the right hand cover. These
sense the opening and closing of the right hand cover door and the window.
They are connected to the control panel, information is then relayed to the
main PCA in electronics enclosure.
The left hand cover door sensor is mounted on the side plate. It is connected
to the refill interconnect PCA, information is then relayed to the main PCA
in the electronics module.
