It may one of the following, try these and see if you have any changes. If it happens while loading media the sheet you loaded may be misaligned or it may be an an invalid size.
The media lever may be lowered if so raise the lever.
Or the cover is open when the printer is initializing. Lower the cover and power back on.
Hope it is one of these and not something serious.

Red and green light turn after first run


Its common problem in T Series Plotters:
Cause of malfunction: These plotters having separate sheet path as well as roll path for print media. After initializing plotter its verify the available media(sheet or roll). If sheet path is occupied by the media it wont allow the roll media, means first priority is for sheet.If sheet path paper sensor dusty or malfunction, printer will say "remove paper from sheet path" even no paper in sheet path..
How to shoot this problem:
You need to clean sheet path sensor located at sheet loading area.(black 'U' shaped part) Applying the pressured air at sensor is the best method to clean.. If problem remain you need to remove the sensor & clean or replace it.

I think the problem is not the computer. You shoud check the plotter by running the test print without the computer. When plotter's power is on, press Setup and Cancel keys simultaneously. If it does not print, then the plotter need repair.
According to your descriptions, there is System Error Code shown on your control panel. when the lights on for Ready+Cartridges+Data (DKL), it may have 9 possible causes referred by Service Manual page 2-7. You can check all these 9 items to see which one causes the problem.

Problem with plotter


That sounds like a carrage movment problem. When you load paper the carrage moves from the RHS very quickly. If your carrage is not properly lubricated you will get that fault. Before going further you must switch off and open the cover. Look along the length of the belt (just below on the aluminum) if there ere lots of reddish pieces and a dust like substance it means that your carrage belt will need replacing. If the belt is ok, then move the head to the middle of the machine by hand and apply a drop of thin oil (sewing machine) to either side of the carrage on the bar. Move the head slowly left and right to lubricate the bar. It then should be ok.
Good luck

The reason it could be the main board is that it tells the front panel lights what to do. This seems like a logical problem the printer is having, usually things freeze when internal memory is bad. Surely have the main board replaced. There is a part of the internal programming that it cant get past. Compare it with trying to read a sector of a cd-rom that is scratched.

Problem with plotter


Are the lights flashing? If they are flashing it is a system error, if they are on steady it is a recoverable error. When you push cancel is the media light the only one or is align media or ready on as well?

ERROR LIGHTS


Is your ready light on as well? If so this may indicate that the "mark encoder" is not detected.The mark encoder is the white plastic piece on the left end of the large black roller that the paper feeds around.If the encoder is very dirty,then cleaning may help.If not, carriage usually has to be replacved, I have heard of some that paint over the mark encoder with white out before replacing the carriage. Don't think I would try it but....Hope this helps.

Hp designjet 450c error lights


Take all cartridges out while the plotter is on,then re-insert them one by one and watch the ready light flash after each insertion.If it doesn't flash that could mean 2 things,either the cartridge is bad or the contacts on the carriage are dirty or the entire carriage needs replacing.
I tell all of my dj-4XX customers to check the spittoon assembly(on the inside,right side)for ink buildup. If it looks clogged,you can temporarily scoop the ink that solidified out,but eventually it(spittoon)will need replacing.
Hope this helps

Loading cut sheets


Try to check the paper media set on the plotter (roll/plain paper). It usually happens if paper media is not the same with the plotter setting. To change it, unload the paper, press the media button on the printer to the right media and load the paper again. It should work now.
