The calibration is performed for a given combination of printheads and paper type. After you have done the calibration, the calibration data is stored in the printer and is used the next time you print with the same type of paper loaded.

Note that the color calibration is restricted to HP manufactured paper of certain types. Refer to the Using Your Printer CD for more details.

Note that different color calibrations apply for the default printer driver (RGB) and for the optional HP RIP (CMYK). This section describes how to perform a color calibration when using the default printer driver supplied with the printer. If you are using a RIP, to perform a color calibration refer to the documentation for your RIP.

For more general information about color calibration, refer to “Tell Me About Color Calibration” on page 42.

  1. Make sure that you have a blank sheet of A4 or Letter paper, or a roll of paper of the relevant type at hand.
  1. Double-click the HP Designjet Color Calibration icon on the desktop.
  1. Choose the appropriate on-screen options.

The color calibration print will be produced. Once the calibration has finished, you do not need to keep the printout.

How Do I Load Sheets of Paper? (General Guidance)

There are three ways of loading sheets of paper into the printer (note that the diagram below shows the printer with the Automatic Roll Feed installed):
HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 11

tray

  1. The tray at the front of the printer for normal sheets of paper between

76 x 142 mm (3 x 5.6 inches) and 457 x 610 mm (18 x 24 inches) (C+ or A2+); envelopes can also be loaded in the input tray.

  1. The front path for paper between 110 x 205 mm (4.3 x 8.1 inches) and 625 x 1625 mm (24.6 x 63.9 inches) (D+ or A1+);
  1. The rear path, for single thick sheets of paper or other media between 110 x 205 mm (4.3 x 8.1 inches) and 625 x 1625 mm

(24.6 x 63.9 inches) (D+ or A1+). For printers with the Automatic Roll Feed installed, the upper slot is used for single-sheet input and the lower slot is used for roll input.

The extensions may be used to support large sheets of paper going into the front input path, and also act as supports for paper arriving in the output tray.

Important:If you wish to print to a sheet and there is a roll of paper loaded in the printer, the roll must be unloaded to allow printing to the sheet. This happens automatically when you send your print job to the printer. However, if you wish to print to a single sheet loaded via the front path, we recommend that you unload the roll manually before submitting your print job; see “How Do I Unload a Roll of Paper?” on page 10. The roll is automatically reloaded the next time printing to the roll is requested.

How Do I Load Paper in the Input Tray?

1. Remove the tray from the printer.
HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 47

  1. Remove the dust cover from the tray. Adjust the size of the tray if necessary. If the paper you are using is larger than Legal- or A4-size, extend the tray. For Legal- and A4-size or smaller paper, use the tray in its normal size. To adjust the size of the tray, slide the tray extension locking tab to the left until it clicks. This unlocks the tray extension. To lengthen the tray, pull the tray extension out as far as it will go. To make the tray shorter, push the tray extension in as far as it will go. The tray extension locking tab will click back to its normal position, locking the tray size.

How Do I Load a Roll of Paper?

This section is only relevant if your printer has the Automatic Roll Feed installed.

Only one source of paper can be used by the printer at any one time, so if a roll of paper is loaded in the printer and you want to print to a sheet of paper, you must first unload the roll. The roll is automatically reloaded the next time printing to the roll is requested.

You can cut a roll without unloading it by pressing the OK key (top right key on the front panel); the paper first advances about 1 cm or 0.4 inch.

  1. Set your application to pick paper from the roll feed.
  1. Select Print from your application.
  1. Load a roll of the required paper onto the spindle. Ensure that the roll is the right way round and that the blue stop on the spindle is pushed in against the paper.
  1. Insert the spindle into its retaining slots, with the blue stop on the right and the black stop on the left as seen from the rear of the printer.

HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 97

If the paper is glossy, we recommend that you wear gloves to avoid smearing the surface of the paper.

  1. Make sure that the leading edge of the roll is straight and perpendicular to its side edges and has no irregularities.

  1. Insert the leading edge of the paper into the lower slot in the rear of the printer. Push the paper in until it encounters resistance, keeping the sides of the paper rolled tightly so that the paper is not skewed.
  1. After emitting a ‘beep’, the printer will take up the paper.

HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 121

10.The printer will check the alignment of the paper.

If the paper is properly aligned, the roll icon will appear on the display, indicating that the printer is ready to print.
HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 123

If the paper is misaligned, the printer will eject the paper and the display will show the misaligned and roll icons; you will have to reload the paper.
HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 125

Repeat Step 7, so that the paper is tightly rolled onto the spindle.

How Do I Unload a Roll of Paper?

This section is only relevant if your printer has the Automatic Roll Feed installed.

Important: Do not pull on the roll of paper once it is taken up by the printer, that is, if there is any resistance.

There are two ways of unloading a roll of paper:

If you want to unload the roll in order to feed a single sheet through the printer, press the Cancel and OK keys on the front panel at the same time (see below). If you later request printing to the roll, the Automatic Roll Feed will then automatically reload the roll.
HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 25

Check Also:  HP Laserjet 2055dn

If you want to unload the roll in order to completely remove it (for example, you no longer wish to use this roll of paper):

  1. Push the Eject button on the left roll feed support at the rear of the printer. Avoid pressing the Eject button several times, as this can damage the paper.
  1. Pull the roll towards you and remove the paper completely from the rear paper path of the printer. The icons shown below will flash until the paper is completely out, because if the paper is only partially removed, paper jams may subsequently occur. Sometimes the paper may fall away from the rear path by itself.

HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 149

You do not need to remove the spindle from its supports in the printer.

HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 151

The table on the next page gives the output system configuration required for various paper sizes.

Note the following:

  1. When using the main tray or roll feedback as source, make the necessary adjustments to the output system to enable output to be stacked.
  2. If the output tray already has prints stacked in it and you want to print from the roll feed, empty the output tray and adjust it as necessary before printing.

How do I Clean a Printhead?

If a printhead fails or needs attention, the corresponding icon on the front panel will flash.
HP DesignJet 130 User Manual 217

Make sure the printhead is correctly seated. If this is not the problem, the most likely cause of failure is that the printhead contacts need to be cleaned. You will need the following cleaning materials:

  1. Clean, soft, lint-free material that will not come apart or leave fibres when damp (a coffee filter, for example)
  2. Distilled or filtered water
  1. Paper towels

Make sure the printer is powered on, then do the following:

  1. Open the front hinged flap at the right of the printer.
  1. Open the second (back) part of the flap and lift it back fully. The print carriage will move to the left and then back to the right. Wait for it to stop. When the carriage has stopped moving, unplug the power cable from the printer.
  1. Pull the printhead cover up and towards you, so that the hook at the front unlatches itself, and then push the whole cover back so that the printheads are exposed.

How Do I Align Printheads?

If the printheads are not correctly aligned, poor quality printing will result.

To align printheads, you will need to use the HP Designjet System Maintenance utility. This is normally installed when you install the software (printer driver) for your printer from the HP Designjet 30 & 130 series Printers Software Setup CD or when you install the optional HP RIP.

For some functions, the HP Designjet System Maintenance utility requires an Internet connection, but you do not need this connection to perform printhead alignment.

See “Tell Me About HP Designjet System Maintenance” on page 43.

To align the printheads:

  1. Make sure that you have at least 5 sheets of A4 or Letter paper in the input tray.
  1. Start the HP Designjet System Maintenance. To do this, refer to “How Do I Use HP Designjet System Maintenance?” on page 22.
  1. Select Maintain printheads, then Align printheads.
  1. The printer will print a printhead alignment sheet. Check that the sheet printed has a tick on it. If it does not, repeat the process.
