You can run this printer without an hdd. disconnect the power from the hdd.you may have to disconnect the IDE controller (the small board that connects to the main pca) and disconnect the flat grey cable. this makes your DJ1055CM a DJ1050C it should print okay. you cannot format any hdd to work. you must buy the hdd from HP. if you can find one. good luck and i hope this helped.

It is most likely the network card. Take it out of the plotter(while it is off nad unplugged) and restart it to see if the problem returns
If it does,it is going to be the hard disk..

I doubt it. When the printer powers up, it checks to make sure that all modules are in place and functional. If one is missing, you'll get an error message.

Printheads are available everywhere, you replace them your self. Machine will usually indicate just one bad print head at a time.

Hp designjet error message 5.10


The 04C*** error is an internal data bus error. The hard disk drive and the Jetdirect card share this bus. With the power off, disconnect the HDD and remove the Jetdirect card. Power up and see if the error goes away and the plotter goes to ready. If it does, put the HDD and Jetdirect card back into the plotter one at a time and power up again to identify the failing part. If the error continues with the HDD and Jetdirect card removed, the bus controller has died and the main logic board needs to be replaced. Any of these parts can be ordered from: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-654-designjet-1050c-1055cm.aspx

Red light comes on nothing ells


The Designjet 1050C Plus does not need the hard disk drive to boot. When only the red light comes on, the firmware ROM is probably missing. Open the small panel on the back of the plotter to access the memory and ROM slots. If the FW ROM and memory are missing, you will need to buy them to make the plotter boot. They can be purchased at: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-654-designjet-1050c-1055cm.aspx

What is system error 0B0006 on Hp design Jet plotter? I have replaced the power cable but no luck


The Trailing Cable has been incorrectly connected OR the fuse in the Electronics Module has been burned.


Corrective Action: Turn the Printer OFF and disconnect the trailing cable. Check that the ends of the Trailing Cable are flat and are not damaged or bent. Reconnect the Trailing Cable correctly, making sure it is pushed in firmly. Do the resistance test. Power ON the Printer and check if the Error Code disappears. If the Error Code continues, replace the Main Logic Board

Note: The logic board is a direct replacement for the Designjet 1050C Plus and 1055CM Plus. If the plotter you are repairing is the Designjet 1050C (not Plus) you will also need to replace the memory and the firmware.

If you are repairing a Designjet 1055CM (not Plus) you will have to replace the Hard Disk Drive also. The firmware is identical for the 1050C Plus and 1055CM Plus

Note: The aerosol fan is not used in the Designjet 1050C Plus or 1055CM Plus. Coil the cable out of the way or completely remove the fan.


WARNING TAKE CARE WHEN CONNECTING THE TRAILING CABLE TO THE ELECTRONICS MODULE OR CARRIAGE. INCORRECT INSTALLATION WILL BURN THE FUSE IN THE ELECTRONICS MODULE, CAUSING THE COMPLETE FAILURE AND REPLACEMENT OF THE LOGIC BOARD. 100 OHMS OR HIGHER MUST BE SEEN AT THE TEST POINTS. CONSULT THE SERVICE MANUAL FOR CORRECT PROCEDURE.


Continuable and Non-Continuable Error Codes

Some of the Error Codes are continuable, which means you can press Enter on the front-panel and continue working with the Printer. Non-Continuable Error Codes do not allow you to continue working with the Printer, in this case power the Printer OFF and ON again and see if the System Error disappears. If the Error Code reappears, then the Printer requires service in order to resolve the problem.


System error codes are hexa-decimal based numbers generally caused by internal system errors. Only try one recommended action at a time and check if the error code has disappeared.


thanks and regards

kindly rate this solution

HP DesignJet 1055cm Plus system error: 04C300 001F0000.


Its either the EIO card, make sure its seated properly, or the hard disk drive has failed in your plotter. Try running the plotter with out the hard disk drive, it is static sensitive, so make sure your grounded before removing it.

The HP Designjet 1055cm has 4 ink cartridges, 4 printheads and 4 printhead cleaners. My question is: Will the plotter still work properly if I just install the black ink cartridge along with the printhead...


I doubt it. When the printer powers up, it checks to make sure that all modules are in place and functional. If one is missing, you'll get an error message.
