HP Designjet T7100 and T7100 Monochrome Printer Series - Load a roll into the printer

Load a roll into the printer
  1. At the printer's front panel, select the icon, and then select Paper load > Load roll.
    Figure : Front-panel load-roll message
  2. Select the roll that you intend to load using the Up and Down keys. The printer puts all rolls on standby.
  3. If the selected roll is currently loaded, the printer automatically unloads it, printing the barcode if Printing paper info is enabled. Remove the unloaded roll.
  4. If Printing paper info is not enabled, the front panel asks you to select the paper type.
  5. Open the roll door with its blue handle when prompted by the front panel.
  6. Check that the hubs are the correct size for the roll you want to load. If necessary, change them.
  7. Move the left hub to the left by pressing the blue lever.
  8. Put the roll into the cavity with the paper edge on the near side facing downwards.
  9. Insert the right side of the roll onto the right hub. Check that the roll is in contact with the disc.
  10. Push the left hub onto the left end of the roll. Check that the hub disc is aligned with the green mark.
  11. Check that there is no gap between the roll and either of the hubs.
  12. Pull some paper from the roll.
  13. If you need to trim the leading edge of the paper, you can use a sharp knife (not supplied with the printer) to cut along the slot in the paper feed brake.
  14. Open the paper feed brake.
  15. Advance the paper to the blue zone.
  16. Close the paper feed brake. Check that the paper edge is still in the blue zone.
  17. Close the roll door.
  18. If the paper that you are using has a barcode printed on the leading edge of the roll, and Printing paper info is enabled, the printer automatically reads the information.
    Figure : Paper-data barcode
    If Printing paper info is enabled and no barcode is detected on the roll that is being loaded, the front panel asks you to enter the paper type and the length of the roll you are loading. Select the paper category and paper type of the roll. If it is not clear which paper category or paper type to select.
    Select the length of the roll.
  19. The printer performs some paper calibrations, after which the roll is ready for use.
  note:
During initial printer setup, printhead alignment and color calibration are performed automatically after the roll is loaded into the printer.
If you experience a problem while loading the paper, follow the instructions on the front panel to load successfully. If you cancel the load, the paper will be unloaded. Here are some problems that can occur:
  • Paper not found. Check that the paper type is supported (perhaps it's transparent).
  • Right edge of roll too far from blue line. Check that the paper is correctly aligned with the right hub.
  • Back door unexpectedly opened. Do not open the back door during a roll load.
  • End of roll reached. In this case, the paper is ejected at the front of the printer.
