Customer Question

HP Designjet Z5400 Cannot load either roll. Machine does not take up the roll

The printer may not be able to "see" the paper; check and let me know if the scan light is working?

Does the following happen:

- when feeding from roll the paper is detected by printer and it feeds the paper to print platen.

- carriage goes out from right position and travels over the paper. Then the paper jam icon is appearing.

Reply back and let me know...
