hp designjet 750c plus errors

I just bought the hp design jet 750c plus used. I have installed the drivers and am able to see it in my printing options but when I try to print nothing happens. The plotter reads: ready, but nothing happens. I look in the printing que and it says printer error. I am running windows vista and I am trying to print pdf and autocad files. I am using autocad LT 2008. I have tried saving my files in 2004 format but that doesnt work either. Any ideas for what i can do to make this work?
