Z3100: Refuses to calibrate paper
« on: January 10, 2009, 09:48:58 PM »

I had to replace a couple of cartridges today.  After that when I went to print I got the message at the bottom of the printer driver that the calibration for the paper was obsolete.  No problem--as I have done many times over the past14 months I loaded the HP-APS software and told the printer to calibrate.  It printed the target, paused, and then cut the paper!  The LCD on the printer said Calibration Canceled.  So I went into the printer menus and found the command to calibrate from the printer menu.  Again, the target printed, I could swear I heard a snide chuckle from the printer, and it cut the paper and canceled calibration!

Has anybody run into this problem?

Whew!  I just rebooted the printer and was able to calibrate the color.  I wonder what got corrupted?  I hope I don't have to do this as often as I find myself trashing the CS4 Preferences file!

Through the web server of the Z3100 you can have a look at the service plot of the printer if your Z3100 is attached on the network. There is a table with "Event logs - System Errors / System Warnings / Printhead Error Log":
