Designjet T series firmware (stable version)

$ 0.00

Having worked on dozens of Designjet T series printers,
I feel like HP is building walls not bridges to make them work.


Upgrading to the latest firmware builds a wall. Downgrading the firmware builds a bridge. 

If your Designjet T series printer is hung up on booting errors (59 or 79), try downgrading the firmware to a stable version.

The older version of the firmware is available for free.

Save the older firmware file to a USB stick and try to boot off of it. Afterwards, remove the USB stick.


Hopefully, reverting back to a previously good version of the firmware will bypass the 59 or 79 errors. And your bridge is rebuilt.

Footnote:
