Question about HP DesignJet 1050c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cutter Problem I have a 1055cm plus with multi-roll feeder. The plotter began making what can best be called a rattling noise when cutting yesterday. Since the noise began the cuts have been getting a little ragged. Not necessarily torn but definately not clean either. This morning during a print job the carriage stopped after a cut and the plotter displayed the error "Turn printer off and check print path." When checking the path I discovered a black rubber washer approx 3in in diameter wedged beneath the carriage underneath the black print head. I'm unable to determine where the washer came from, and the cutter continues to rattle. Any advice?

The cutter has that bushing attached to act as a tire as it travels across the scan axis, these infrequently wear out and cause the carriage to basically drag the blade behind causing your uneven cut pattern, the cutter must be replaced. If you need direction on how to do so please contact me

What is AppHangXProcB1 in my cutter plotter


What kind of plotter. Reading the error it appears that some process is freezing up. This can be caused by a corrupt print job, bad driver. First step you want to take is to update the firmware on the plotter.

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

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.

Dead hard drive in 1055CM DesignJet Plotter to replace


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..
