HP Designjet 500 42inch Plotter Paper Jamming.


Today I looked at an HP Design Jet 500 42 inch plotter in Royal Park London. The customer was experiencing intermittent paper jamming issues.

The plotter was also in need of servicing and cleaning as it was located in an industrial site and was covered in dust. Upon inspection, I noticed that the paper rolls that the customer was using had been damaged, which was causing the paper to misfeed and jam. As shown in the picture, the paper rolls were crushed in transit. I always recommend to customers to check that their paper rolls have not been damaged in transit, as some suppliers will not accept returns for used or damaged paper.

Here are some tips to prevent paper jams in your HP Design Jet 500 42 inch plotter:

Excellent customer service Contacted them about fixing a dead HP printer but decided it was quicker to replace it as our business can't function without one. Andrew in service recommended a Brother machine which is perfect for our requirements and Jeremy in sales arranged delivery by 10:30 the next morning (it arrived at 9:30!). I was in a tight spot and both of them did their utmost to help. I shall definitely be purchasing from them in future and highly recommend Diamondsource Ltd. Thank you.
