My 1050c plotter has come up with error code 0B00D 0000002 can anyone advise on this

This is a Power On Self Test (POST) error. It indicates a missing 24VDC. The probable cause is an over current condition from a motor (24 volts is used to drive motors). The power supply has circuitry that shuts it down in over current conditions to protect itself. There is probably a bind in a mechanical mechanism causing extra stress and over current in one of the motors. The motors are: carriage belt drive, paper drive, and service station motor. Remove the covers and move each mechanism manually to check for binds or broken parts. If nothing is found, replacing the motors is the next best bet. Replace them in this order: Carriage motor, Paper motor, Service station. If that does not cure the problem, replace the Power Supply and finally the Formatter Board. The manual can be downloaded from: and parts can be purchased at:

The other lock

If the key is removed, the lock is gone from it.  It's just a clear piece of plastic in there.  What could be causing the L1 to happen is the ribbon cable underneath the scanner glass is out of place causing the scanner to stall.  This is a common problem with the AL copier line.  You can take the scanner glass off and check the cable for any binding going on with it.
