Graphtec 5100-130

Recommended Posts

I have a 5100 plotter .

every time I run a job, it will do the job I ask but then it returns to an old job and continues cutting that one.

No matter what I do I cant get rid that old job ..

I've tried clearing software and even resetting the plotter .. cant get anywhere with this machine .. any suggestions???

Which software? Check to see if there is a spool file or production manager in the background- or a stuck function button repeating the job at the plotter?

Thank you for responding.

There doesn't appear to be anything running in the back ground of this.

I double checked all buttons and they seem fine .

I've even disconnected power to the computer and the plotter still wants to just keep running that same job.. The software is gerber 5.0

wth??

Well, I would let it run the file.  - So you are using Gerber Omega 5.0? With a security dongle?

 Is so that software does have a spool file, and you can check the jobs in the que...I would remove the blade holder, and just run the job out.

But if its happening repeatedly - and you have fully reset the machine--that tells me its the software sending it.
