Designjet 1050C Self-Test keeps recycling

HP Recommended
Designjet 1050C
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Plotter started acting up this morning. Rebooted, now it just keeps recycling the self test.


I've seen others online with this problem but no answers...


Anyone have an idea?

One thing you can try is to turn off and remove all the cartridges and then turn on again and wait to see if it initialises and then ask for may find one of them is faulty...I have seen this a few times before..good luck.

Hi There,

It is likely you have a finnicky hard drive. Is your 1050c a Plus machine or non-Plus?
