    A belt fell off my DesignJet 110nr plus. The belt is about 3" in diameter and 1/8" wide. Facing the front of the printer, the belt is located on the extreme left end of the carriage. The belt is around what appears to be the shaft that moves the paper. There is a plastic gear attached to the shaft that is probably one half of the belt path, but I cannot see another gear that would complete the belt path. The printer still prints on roll feed paper; I have not tried sheet feed paper. If anyone has a drawing or description that would tell me where this belt belongs, I would appreciate a posting that includes the info.

    The Output Belt was off my printer. The Raceway Holder is located in the center of the printer. The Raceway Holder is a guide for the Ink Supply Tubes. The Raceway Holder comes off easily. We had recently moved the printer. I suspect the Raceway Holder was jarred out of the hole where it was seated and the printer carriage pushed it to the left end of the printer where it pushed the Output Belt off its gear. My initial symptom was an error 86-11. I found the Raceway Holder lying on the left end of the carriage. After I removed the Raceway Holder from the carriage path, seated it in its hole, and threaded the Ink Supply Tubes through the loop on the end of the Raceway Holder, the error 86-11 went away. When retrieving the Raceway Holder from the left end of the carriage, I noticed the Output Belt was dangling from the paper drive shaft. That is when I had to find a manual to determine how to take the cover off the printer. The center cover and the left-hand cover must be removed to access the gears for the Output Belt. Bottom line: To avoid headaches after moving the printer, check to make sure the Raceway Holder is properly seated before using the printer.

Under the glass on a printer there is i presume the thing that scans it moves left to right visa versa by what i would call pulleys i think mine opened and fell apart i have all the parts

You have a good handle on the parts and their names. The light source and optics in the scanner do indeed move on rails, powered by a toothed belt and pulleys.

If you can get the glass off you will probably find a screw or a circlip (sprung half moon washer) has come off. It will be fiddly, but you can probably work out what goes where.

It won't "catch" the paper to print. It goes through all of the normal sounds, but won't print.

Check that there are still two rubber bands around the two little rollers. One of mine fell off and got stuck inside.

Mechanism, belt came off.

Turn your machine upside down and give it a shake. Most likely, a small spring will fell out. The same thing happened to us and sure enough, it was the spring. This spring will give the tension you need to hold the belt on the plastic piece.

Foam fell out of printer now printer jams

There are no foams inside the printer for normal operation. Unless this is the one that was inside it during shipping but you were not able to remove it. In any case if you are not having any problems then you are good to go. dont worry about it.

X73 found loose spring

I was having a similar problem. After finding the service manual (4402_X73.pdf) and taking the thing apart, an ink-covered broken spring fell from the inside. I checked around the 'Maintenance Station' and found the other half still hanging. Apparently -because I haven't got a replacement yet to confirm- the spring goes across the bottom of the 'Maintenance Station' to a lever on the other side. If someone can tell me where to post a picture of the thing, I'll gladly do it.
