Carriage belt is off, loose when on


Carriage belts are tensioned inside the machine on one of the idler pulleys. A belt that came off usually indicates there is a lubrication issue - one of the pulleys won't turn easy or the print head is binding on the slide shaft (Extremely common). The belt may have stretched (though unlikely) You may be able buy the belts from SDP-si.com in the US. This is just one of the sources. Try a printer repair shop.

During startup the drive belt slips and gives an error


Open the printer's door and look for the print carriage. It's the platform that moves back and forth over the paper, probably where you put new cartridges. Unplug the printer, and check this belt and its pulleys to see if it's either broken or possibly covered in ink. The drive belt will be black and have gear teeth on it. If you see a metal or plastic ribbon, that's more likely the encoder that let's the printer's computer read the position of the carriage. See if you can nudge the carriage and make it move a little; it may simply be jammed. Check the carriage's moving path and make sure it's not obstructed. Any other problems would probably best be handled by Epson.

I have a Voco Pro Model DVD-Duet. The problem is when you put a cd in the little center knob is stuck down that keeps the cd on tract it looks as if someone has pushed it down and it want come back up so...


It is possible the carriage that the CD goes in does not lower onto the center hub rather than the hub being too low.

The carriages move by a small motor and often there is a belt that slips so carriage doesn't move. Replacing the belt is usually required.

Working on the CD drives is very tender fragile work so you should take this to a repair shop. Contact the manufacturer for a recommendation.

My printer carriage won't move???? It is an HP C 4180 printer. I put in a new black ink and it jammed. I know how to install the ink and nothing happened that was different except now it won't move. Can...


Make sure the cartridge is firmly seated in its holder. It's possible that the carriage belt has broken or has slipped off the motot pulley. Look inside the printer and locate the flat toothed belt that pulls the carriage back and forth. follow it to either end and make sure that it isn't broken or slipped off the motor.

Print runs to the right as it prints the page, moving closer and closer to the right edge of the sheet as it prints down the page.


The printer is losing traack of the zero position of the carriage.

Possible problems:

1. carriage drive belt is too loose or teeth have been lost off the drive gear.

2. There is too much stiction of the carriage and the stepping motor "slips a cog".

My canon pixma mp530 makes a loud noise most times when it powers up and when i print a document. It works OK otherwise.


My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.

Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.

This error code is a Carriage motor error. Below is the outline for what to check and what to repair/replace. Good luck.

Cause
This is displayed when a jam or other physical problem puts an excessive load on the carriage motor so that the carriage could not operate.
This is displayed when the carriage motor could not reach the prescribed speed within the prescribed time.

Probable problem locations
Foreign object in carriage movement path, carriage rail, carriage belt, linear scale, linear encoder, carriage motor, engine controller, system controller


Remedy
1. Carriage movement path check
Remove any foreign objects (jammed sheet) in the carriage movement path.
2. Carriage rail
Use rail cleaner to clean the carriage rails if a visual check reveals that they are dirty.
3. Carriage belt
If a visual check reveals slack in the carriage belt, remount the belt.
4. Replace the linear scale.
5. Replace the linear encoder.
6. Replace the carriage motor.
7. Cable connection check
Replace the cable between the carriage motor and engine controller if the connection is not functioning normally.
8. Replace the engine controller.
9. Replace the system controller.
