PROGRAF PRO-1000 Problem

My Pro-1000 has started randomly powering off. Sometimes while it is printing and at other times when it is idle. It will not power up until I unplug it and let it sit for an hour or so.

I tried tech support and they agree there is a problem, but not one to fix as it might be less expensive to just buy a new printer. So, before I buy another printer, has anyone experienced this problem and is there a reasonable alternative to buying a printer?

Thanks for any assistance.

There are some potentially helpful suggestions in this post I found through a Google search.

As a new member and first message, first and foremost where are you from ?  How old is the printer and what sort of duty cycle has it seen ?

Very generally speaking, that sounds like it could be heat-related.
