    You did not provide any information that was useful in solving my problem with the HP printer. I wanted a step-by-step procedure for gaining access to the carriage drive to replace the drive belt. There is no obvious screws or pins that I can remove to do this. I do not believe that there is an assembly manual that is available tho they were prompt in shipping the drive belt for $47. Please credit my charge card account. I have bookmarked your site for future reference. Thank you for your prompt reply.

Its not at all hard to replace the carriage belt.you will just have to open the printer first and then after opening the front and sides of the printer then you will have to remove the side clips that are attached to the printer with a round clips just will have to pull that round clips to open them.then after opening the round clips the steel rod on which the carriage moves will come out and then you can also slide the carriage on that rod and remove the carriage from the 1 side of the rod.then in the back its made a mark to fit the belt.its exactly ---C shaped or u can say S shaped.also it looks like a small speed breaker which u see on the roads.there you can just fit that belt in the C and rearrange all the parts again as they were.it will work properly after that.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I was made to understand that Torx bits are needed to install (4 screws for T20 and 3 screws for T10, depending on the regional version). A pictorial for a closely related chassis that may serve as guide/reference.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Well, those compact all in one HP printers arent meant to be repaired as much as there meant to last till warranty is up and **** out. The use flimsy plastic parts that break easily when trying to open it up, but, if you want, I can try, but im more familiar with the big bulk printer for offieces rather than the small ones.

You will of course have to take it apart my removing any removable treys and ink cartdridges, The drive belt is usually located in the back on the big ones but that one may have it more in the center.

You would remove the top and should have access to the belt, it may be attached to the fuser, which gets very hot and melts the ink to the paper.

The belt is usually attached to the fuser because its rolls the paper through and out and drives several gears.

Now this isnt really a solution as much as it is advice as i havent done one of that model.

You will have to learn as you go, but never force anything plastic. When plastic starts breaking, you might as well chunk it as these parts are hard to get.

HP may provide you with an actual repaire manual if you call them.

Good luck

Black ink Catridge


Sorry but I did not fix the problem. I will attempt to fill the gap at the bottom of the cartidge maybe with a piece of cardboard. Otherwise I will have to do something else since I do not own a credit card and I am from far in Malta in Europe. Thanks for your care.

Black ink carriage broken


with most laser printers nowadays, it would be easier to junk the one you have and go buy one from wal-mart or someplace of the like than to have it fixed. most printer manufacturers dont even sell replacement mechanical parts through their sites anymore... its just not cost effective to either the producer or consumer.
