HP Designjet L26500 Printer Series - Take-up reel does not wind

Take-up reel does not wind
Predictably, if the take-up reel is not winding as anticipated, the printed output is likely to end up on the floor. If the printer recognizes a problem with the take-up reel, it interrupts the print job until the issue is corrected. If the printer does not recognize a problem, the job continues to print. The following table highlights possible issues and solutions.
