SOURCE: 79.03 error

you will need to contact hp support (yes in india)
Ask them to send you a .plt file, this only applies if you are able to ftp to your printer whilst in the diagnostic mode.
If ftp is not an option request an .exe file called PRNter.exe, with this you can sent the .plt file to printer through usb. 
If non of these options will work you need to request a new formatter, and like me they will charge you for the part, as hp will not take responsibility for a bad firmware update. Even when i have a screen capture vid showing being unable to download anything of the hp server at the time of a botched firmware update rendering the 3100 brocken and un fixable without a new formatter.
A two week fiasco still pending for me
hope this helps  if need any more help i am at asylum119 at hotmail dot com

Hi there only can try.
This is a firmware error, meaning your f/w simm is probably bad. You can try reseating the simm. It is behind the small panel in the back of the plotter, that is held on by 4 torq screws. Reseat all the simms that are present and see if that helps. If not, you probably need to purchase a new firmware simm.

Also try looking at
pulling the JetDirect card and then re booting it

Hp designjet t1100 blank hard drive installation


Unfortunately I had a similar issue with an HP A0 printer. The Hp 'Engineer' could not fix it. The hard drive had failed and there is a complete new hard drive with software loaded available but only through Hp.

Taking long timeto swith on the printer


try clearing all previous jobs from t he hard drive- it only does File System Check when a corrupt file has been identified on the hard drive and so it is re-writing all the information from the eerom back to the hard drive ( usually a sign of a failing hard drive) suggest you order one on-line ready for replacement. (you will need a HP Z2100 hard drive from HP a standard Hard drive will not work without some tricky copying/backup proceedures.

How to install New firm ware in new hard disk printer hp designjet T1100Ps


When you installed the new hard drive, was it purchased from HP as the hard drive for the T1100ps, or did you install a generic hard drive like for a laptop?

HP uses a special formatting on their hard drive with its own operating system with the latest firmware already installed (not windows o/s), so just installing new firmware will not work...the plotter must be on and in a ready state to receive the firmware update.

Paper jam plotter


do you ever see either of these codes during the error-86:01 or 42.xx
if so this could just be a case of upgrading the software(firmware) of the plotter, there is a known problem with the starwheel lift mechanism whic is solved by the firmware upgrade,.
if you havent seen either of those errors then your problem may lie with torn paper in or about the service station area stopping the carriage from reaching its home position ( required at warmup) or the cariirage drive belt may be worn in areas ( the rubber belt with ridges (teeth) that spans the entire print platten and is attached to the carriage) check with a torch to look down inside either end cap of the plooter looking for what looks like mouse droppings. this is a clear sign of the drive belt aging .
any of the above will give you the error that your experiencing
hope this helps

My hp designjet 500 doesn't recognize the I/O Card


By I/O card I assume you are referring to your JetDirect or the optional HP/GL2 formatter board, your EIO devices?
If you have them installed and the plotter does not recognize them.
Shut down the plotter then remove the power cord from the plotter or the wall and wait 5 mins.
Remove ALL EIO devices (JetDirect / formatter).
Plug the plotter back in and restart the plotter.
Test functions of the plotter.
Shut down the plotter and then add back only the JetDirect.
Start the plotter and check the function, and check if the menu will allow you to setup the JetDirect.
If successful, shutdown again and reinstall the Formatter Card (if you use one).
Test functions and check the I/O setup in the menu.
The idea in a nutshell, remove the cards and add them back one at a time to see which one if any is bad and causing the I/O to shut off.
If this does not help, you may need to replace the plotters Electronics module

HP 1050C Plus shuts down prior to plotting


09Bxxx is an internal error. Probably a bad Hard Drive or Main PCA board. Hopefully it's that Hard Drive because the main PCA board is EXPENSIVE.

Try replacing the Hard Drive, check to see if that fixes your problem. If not, then try replacing the Main PCA.

Sorry, and Good Luck
