Or buy all 4 units for $1000 and have parts to spare or make a killing selling these as parts or complete units on eBay. They sell these whole units broken on eBay for for $450 and up not including shipping which runs around $250 and up per unit. Each of these specialty nuts and bolts sells for $20 and up a piece which each unit has 100s of. While these units are also full of circuit boards that sell for $150-$450 each on eBay, and are listed one day and gone the next so there must be a large demand and need for these parts for people looking to fix their own units.


For Sale 4 used HP Hewlett Packard DesignJet 5000PS 42" and 60" full color outdoor digital printers. We have 2 - 42" and 2 - 60" units that we picked up as part of government surplus auction. The items were stated to be working at the time they were taken out of service but had began to print in streaks. On closer inspection after we received the units only one of the 42" machines powers on but shows a paper jam error but the belt did appear to be loose and possible slipped off its guide wheels (as for the 42" machine that didn't power up we didn't look any closer then that it could be a fuse or a power supply I have no clue) and only the 1 - 42" machine that powers on has the ink cartridges the other 42" both 60" machines are missing the cartridges. The 1 - 42" machine that didn't power on is missing the tray that holds the print heads (see photo). Both the 42" machines are missing the network cards. And I believe all 4 machines need new belts also, they are very loose and some are actually cracked and breaking. The streaky printing issue was most likely just due to the bad belts, print heads needing to be cleaned, or very worst case scenario the print heads could need to be replaced. All the factory parts are available on eBay and very cheap for aftermarket versions.

We got these units as part of a large lot of equipment from a government auction and had to take it all in order to get the equipment we did want. Unfortunately we do not have the time or space to deal with these. The storage unit they were being stored in is going away and now they are taking up valuable shop space that we do not have and need them gone. Due to our governments unlimited budgets they were never forced to maintain or service any of this equipment like someone who has to earn their money would, and can just run out and spend $100,000 when they feel like it to replace units like these.

If you are in the market to buy a digital printer here is your chance to get one for pennies on the dollar and put into service with a little bit of maintenance or buy these as parts to repair your own units with. Or part them out and make a killing off them on eBay.
