HP DesignJet 42" hard drive failure
« on: June 27, 2011, 02:14:44 PM »
Would anyone happen to have an old HP 5500 (non PS) in the junk pile
that would be willing to send me the hard drive.
Mine blew up today.

I still use mine. This seems to be an issue with the big HPs. Mine hucked a hard drive a couple years ago, fortunately, it was still under warranty.

Did you find a used one or did you have to kick down for a new one?
