Designjet 5500 calibration problems

My Designjet 5500 prints part of the print head alignment chart and scans part of it in then counts to 99% completed and then pauses without completing the calibration. I must have tried 10 times. I have reloaded s5604 firmware but still no luck. Any ideas?

Hi Simon,

1- When did you last replace the printheads? Have you tried to replace them?

2- What is the calibration error developed as it reaches 99% ?

3- Did you try to replace the Lens of the carriage this way:

Re: Designjet 5500 calibration problems

I have fixed the problem by running 2 Service Calibrations 2.2 Service Station. Then ran the calbration again and it worked.
Thanks anyway!
