HP Designjet 9000s Printer Series - Loading Roll Media

  caution:
Do not touch heater surfaces in the paper path. This may cause burns.
Handle media rolls with care. They can be heavy and difficult to move in confined spaces. In some cases, two people should move and install media rolls. Dropping a media roll could cause personal injury or damage to the printer.
The printer's front panel messages will guide you through the process of loading media. To install a media roll:
  1. Open the rear cover and slide the media edge guards to each end of the platen.
    Slide the fan guide lever to the right side of the platen to avoid obstructing the media path and damaging the media.

      note:
    Position the media edge guards after loading the media. Position the fan guide lever after loading the media.
  2. Close the rear cover.
  3. Loosen the lock on the left media hub by turning the lock anti-clockwise.

  4. Adjust the position of the left media hub to allow for insertion of the roll of media.
  5. You can feed the media through the media path over (externally) or under (internally) the roll according to the side of the media you want to print on. Make sure you insert the end of the roll that will allow you to print on the correct side.

  11. Feed the media until a beep sounds from the media feeder (about 200 mm).
    Figure : Feeding the media
      note:
    If you have problems loading media, feed the media into the printer by holding both edges of the media.
    Take care that the media does not curl inside the rear cover and that the media edge guards are not obstructing the media path.
      note:
    The vertical media line guide on the printer is for sheet media loading only. Do not use for roll media.
  12. Take up any excess media by rewinding the media stop on the media roll. This will help to make sure there is even tension across the width of the media and avoid skew.
