R200 jammed carriage Grinding belt

I have an R200. I use it infrequently. The carriage moves normally during warm up but when I go to print the carriage stays jammed on the right (rest position) while the drive belt grinds away noisily for a few seconds and then the machine shuts down. Once the machine is turned off, I can slide the carriage easily by hand.

During initialisation it shows dat there is jam


during the warm up cycle the carriage has to reach both ends of the scan platten if for any reason it is not able to achive this it throws the error Paper jam or 86:01 ( both mean the same thhing)
what you need to do:-
1) disconnect the plotter from the mains
2) open the central lid and using a torch look carefully along the carriage path for any obstacles or debris that may interfere with the carriage motion.
3) assuming there is no obvious blockages look carefully at the carriage drive belt to see if the imprinted teeth have worn off you may also see what looks like mouse droppings on the print platen
4) remove the right end cap - move the sercvice staion out of the way of the carriage and then gently ease the carriage to both left and right extents checking all the while for debris, leave the carriage on the left and leave the service station out of home position, return the mains lead and allow th plotter to initialize checking to see if the plotter is able to move both assemblies as required.if not then call out a qualifed enginner to replace defective drive belt or carriage assembly or indeed the service station

The power light is flashing and the printer makes a grinding noise and won't print. There was a paper jam that i had to pull out prior to this issue.


Hello According to HP, follow these steps for resolving the issue
Remove the rear access door, or the automatic two-sided printing accessory, and check for any paper jams or paper obstructions. Remove any obstructions. Check to make certain the carriage is on the right side of the printer. Rotate the rear paper guide rollers upwards five times, then downwards four times. If the rollers will not move, open the top cover and slide the carriage to the right (if it is not already there and if carriage can move). Try to roll the rollers again while pushing the clutch in. If the rollers do not move, continue on to the next step. Figure Location of the clutch c00040832.gif Replace the rear access door accessory, or the automatic two-sided printing accessory. Close the top cover. Plug the power cable back in. Turn the printer on, and replace the cartridges if possible. If the carriage moves, but there is still a grinding noise, there may be a paper feed issue. If the carriage will not move, then it is a carriage stall issue. After installing the cartridge, if the printer has a solid power light, perform a self-test on the printer. Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

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.

Printing is getting jammed in the left corned, then cancells.


Try removing the screws from the back door on the Ink Supply Station (sometimes they catch on the carriage - the printer does not need the screws) Look under the carriage belt to see if there are rubber bits. The belt may be disintegrating and need replacing. Parts available here: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-736-designjet-1050c-belt.aspx

Carriage jam - Turn machine on, get carriage jam message, however the carriage can move freely if moved by hand. If I close and hit enter, carriage sounds like it's moving, then I get the error message...


Sorry about the B.S., you can move the carriage by hand, and all you need is to clean the encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage assembly. You can wipe the strip gently with an alcohol swab or a Q-tip moist with alcohol. The bars on that strip tell the carriage where it is and grease or ink on it will give the carriage jam error. No calibration necessary after moving the head or cleaning the strip.

The printing carriage stalled and I get error message : Clear carriage jam ..


This normally happens if there is something jammingthe head assembly from moving along the carriage rail. Turn off the power to the printer and see if you can move the head assembly by hand. Also check that there are no paper jams anywhere in the paper path and that the belt that moves the head assembly has not broken.

Print carriage problem


I have replaced the belt many times. I think you have to repair your printer in service center.

Hi-

That's interesting... try to reseat the cartridges and make sure cartridge cover snaps when you close it. check for foreign objects inside the printer. You can check for parts if you need to replace one from a distributor, go to compassmicro.com
