So as of right now, my company is working off of an Oce 9400 plotter. I'm not exactly sure how old it is but it's been here since I've been here (a year and a half). As far as I know, my company does not want to budget for a new one, obviously because price is a concern. But that is the company situation, here is the problem:
About a week ago, a few of us moved the plotter which required unplugging everything and plugging back in elsewhere (the plotter is not on the network, it is shared from the attached computer which is, obviously, always on). Nobody changed the settings or anything. At first, the plotter, when sending an AutoCAD drawing to it, would kick an error message. I got the error to disappear so then, when drawings were sent to the plotter, the no errors would kick but the drawing would just sit in the queue forever (the plotter would still say ready with any number of drawings in the queue. Then I got that fixed so the drawings finally sent to the plotter but now the plotter itself was giving an error message of "Feed Table Error." Then I got that fixed. So now, I'm currently stuck at every time a drawing is sent to the plotter, it prints about halfway and the paper jams (every time). I even tried printing from the computer attached to the plotter and it does the same thing. Does anyone have any idea what would be causing a paper jam every time something is printed? If not, does anyone know if this is either a hardware or settings issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.
