My hp Designjet 130nr hangs on the flashing hourglass screen in the LCD display with green LED on.

HP Recommended
hp Designjet 130nr
macOS 10.12 Sierra

My hp Designjet 130nr, when turned ON, hangs on the LCD display and shows a flashing hourglass icon in the upper left corner of the LCD screen. I can't seem to be able to get past the flashing hourglass icon.

 

When I input the combination of keys using the Power button, the Cancel button, and the Continue button to acheive a display of error code(s), I was able to identify the numeric error number 192, which according to the service manual indicates that the printer is initializing the VPPA. I have no idea what that acronym means.

 

Anyone have any ideas what I might do to get past the flashing hourglass? 

 

I am powering my Macbook Pro with Mac OS X 10.12.6 currently and is connected to my Macbook Pro via a USB 2.0 cable directly. I also have a JetDirect 610 ethernet network card installed and have it currently removed from the Designjet 130nr. I do not have a roll-feed option installled into the Designjet currently. Help!

John, is this you? 

 

I came across this site which seems to indicate that the problem could be a bad cover sensor:

....and this guy says that upon getting the constant hourglass he reseated all cables, and then it worked:

Hope this helps.

A couple of other things to possibly try.  ....I have heard of updating the Firmware.

 

And uninstalling and reinstalling the driver.
