Designjet T520: Designjet T520: failure of the printer

Had Designjet T520 about 18 months. Use it only for printing large format on roll paper. Error message: the printer failed. "There is a problem with the printer or ink system. Turn the printer off, then on. If the problem persists, contact HP. »

Have made the procedure "on - off" several times including disconnect, allowing the printer to sit idle and then plug it in, turn on and still the same problem. I also removed and checked each ink cartridge and cannot detect all problems.


Remove all the ink cartridges and turn on the plotter.  When he asks the ink, put them in one at a time and see if the error is displayed when only one of the ink cartridges installed.

  • "Failure of the printer: there is a problem with the printer or ink system" message

    I get printer error message on my printer Officejet 6700 Premium.  I'm on a Mac OSX 10.9.2.

    I have reset the printer and I tried to update the firmware by the instructions, but he tells me that the device is busy and won't.  The printer is out of warranty but was hardly used - less than 200 printed pages - UGH!

    What can I do else?

    Hi Embie2014,

    Thanks for letting me know you are using the HP cartridges No.

    HP recommends you to use genuine HP cartridges. HP does not guarantee the quality or reliability of cartridge not HP, or filled HP cartridges. If you use genuine HP, the following cartridges no could not solve your problem of print quality.

    A "cartridge problem," "ink cartridge failure," or "Incompatible cartridge" Error Message appears on the all-in-one.

    Printer cannot print black ink or color ink or prints blank Pages.

  • Print PDF caused the failure of the print spooler

    I have been all over these blogs, and nobody has the answer. I had no problem and then today when I tried to print a pdf file, everything went haywire. I can not print, I can't remove and reinstall my printer, I can't restart the print spooler (it tries but stops, and then said: he started, but he didn't). HELP ME, PLEASE.

    Hello jrino,

    Thank you for using the Microsoft answers Forum

    Apart from the pdf printing problem can you print other programs such as Word, Notepad, or Wordpad? Try to go to the event viewer and see what errors are being given in the viewer list. Also during activation of the print spooler service, make sure that the spooler depends on all the services are started as well.

    Access Event Viewer: right click on computer and select manage. Click event viewer, and then expand the view so that you can access the different categories. Expand Windows logs, and then click Application. Scroll down and see what kind of errors you found and see if that helps you evil pulls on the question. Post what you find in this thread.

    Looking for services that depend on: click console in the management of the computer Services. Click Services and Applications and then click Services. Find the print spooler and double-click to view the properties. Watch dependent services for the spoooler and to ensure that these services are started and running as well. If one or more of the dependent services do not work this may cause your spooler to stop working as well.

    I have LT 2.5 installed on my Windows Vista computer

    In the printmodule, I'm trying to save my file as a JPG file. This is no problem if it is just AN image

    If I want to save several photos, the images will be saved as ', jpg "instead of".jpg ".

    When I have to rename each picture

    What's wrong???

    Help, please


    Print to JPEG in the print module, I see as favoring boards contact or multiple images on a single sheet.

    Looks like you should be using the library module and choice of export. You can find a few models, and you can do it yourself very easily.

  • failure of the printer

    my printer hologram of stopped for some unknown reason, and I can ' t get "er's"

    Control cables.

    Check Ink/toner.

    See also:



    Your article made a walkthrough basic troubleshooting, ending with the question if the print head is repairable. Because it is not on the 6700, the article isn't really the problem.

    Here is the solution I found to this problem:
    I discovered that eliminating all ink cartridges allows the printer at startup (although there is a message saying the missing print cartridges).
    Putting the cartridges in a binary regression revealed that the ink has been bad. (In my case, I only got the message of failure/printer ink when the yellow cartridge was in the printer).
    Replacement of the restored cartridge the printer functionality.
    That's the good news.
    Now the bad news: for HP.
    The generic error message indicates a failure with the printer or the ink system. No differentiation. With the electronics in the cartridges (that the client pays a high price for), looks that HP could not understand how to indicate a cartridge problem. This error message is not only unnecessary, but misleading. The printer indicates only a power reset and then contact HP. There is no indication that he might be a cartridge problem, not to mention what cartridge has failed. By the way, my customer encountered this problem when you replace the color cartridges. The cartridge failed was a new replacement.
    All of the web enabled features, fax, scanning features, print included with this printer are not very useful if the user can't get the dang thing to print.
    Another problem with this printer, is that, even when you only print in b & W, the printer uses little color (ostensibly make Blacks more "BOLD"). Then, finally, a color cartridge will go low or empty, even if only B & W printing. And guess what, you can't continue to print n & B if one of the color cartridges are out of ink. Thus, HP... How is this useful printer in an office environment, where most print tends to be B & W?

    (I would add; the solution in the message of failure/printer ink cartridge cannot fix your problem if, in fact, there are a few default printer. But if the problem is in the ink system, then the troubleshooting cartridge can help you).
    I have posted similar comments on Amazon, for this printer, in the subject line: shame on you, HP.

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

Thanks for the troubleshooting steps that you received before reaching out for support, including. Right now, you have completed all the troubleshooting steps available in your efforts to solve this error in accordance with the document of support here. The failure itself is probably due to a failure of the print head. The print head is the part that the cartridges will fit. It controls the "reading" of the cartridges and put the ink on the page. If the print head does not, then the printing within your product system has failed. In this model of printer print head is a non-replaceable. Therefore, the resolution is a replacement of the entire unit.

    I highly recommend at this stage that you contact our Technical Support telephone queue for discover hardware replacement options.

  • Configure the print format. 3522

    I was printing a user for a smart phone manual. After many false starts, I finally got exactly what I need.

    Print booklet, 2 pages of a sheet and automatic two-sided, so I got 4 pages on a sheet of paper from the manual pages are half size of 8.5 by 11.  I could print 16 manual pages at once on 4 sheets of paper.  Exactly what I needed. It would take 20 tries to do all the work. cut the leaves half everything was fine.

    Then disaster! failure of the printer. A call to Canon got a warranty replacement.

    But now I've lost configuration to print in the right format. I can't replicate the results and I'm only at half way through the job.

    Detach the printer, I have a piece of paper that has 2 pages of manual on one side and 2 more on the other side. If I run 6 sheets at a time get 24 pages of manual. I am totally impressed with the software that does so well.

    But now I've lost the recipe to select print settings. If anyone can help. Is there a manual for the printer that describes the implementation of ptoper?

  • printer is not working, "the print spooler service is disabled" when it is not


    I received a message that my pc required for the loading of driver software for a new unknown device, although I had nothing added.

    Now, I find that my printer is not working.

    I tried to accept the "locate and install driver software" message, but it does not work.

    I tried to uninstall the printer driver so that I can reinstall them, but I get a message that the uninstallation was failure because the print spooler service is disabled.

    I checked the print spooler service is set to auto & seems to be on.

    Would appreciate any opinion appropriate for a no no very savvy tech.

    Thank you

    This could be the reason why you do not see the printer in the Control Panel, printers. Try this, go to control panel, printers, if you see the printer listed to remove it. If you don't see the printer, the service could stop, go to services then and click on "Restart the service" (blue link top left), then go back to printing, its listed hopely now and you can remove it (right click). Now try to reinstall the printer.

    If that doesn't work try the system restore, restore to a date when the printer works fine.

  • C1765 done yellow toner a printer roller noise rattling and the printer does not work

    Hear a clicking noise when printing.  Replaced the yellow toner and the rattling is still strong and the printer will not work.  The noise and the vibration felt on the new toner only occurs with the yellow toner.  What is happening, is the printer goes wrong.  "low density, yellow to replace the cartridge, printer restart" I just put in a new cartridge.

    Hello David,.

    Please post on the forum. According to the information you provided, it looks like you have a mechanical failure within the printer itself. This device is more compact and carriers Dell limited parts, the best option at this stage would be to replace the printer. It is the course of action we would take if the product is under warranty.

    Kind regards
