HP Designjet 500ps 24" Plotter- screen says to replace printheads

Cannot plot! Screen says to replace printheads.
Do I need a service tech or can I do this? Where is closest Service in zipcode 92307, Apple Valley / Victorville, Ca.
Where can I get printheads for HP Designjet 500ps 24" Plotter - Model # C7769C, could it be only one head or will I need all four? Large (24") format plotter is 6 years old. Predominately use only Black ink cartridge.

Printheads are available everywhere, you replace them your self. Machine will usually indicate just one bad print head at a time.

There's an error appears. It was error number 86


86.01 can be a couple of issues pertaining to the movement of the carriage assembly.
1. Too much friction in the Slider Rod. Lubricate the slider rod.
2. The Carriage is bumping into the Service Station. If the carriage
is stuck at the right hand side of the Printer and cannot be moved
out to the center of the Print Platen it is because the Service
Station cannot uncap the Printheads. In this case replace the
Service Station/Aerosol Fan Assembly.
3. Check the carriage belt for wear. Check the carriage path for debris. If the belt is worn, replace the belt. Also, clean the teeth on the carriage drive motor, the debris from the belt will accumulate on the teeth.

THE SCREEN OF MY HP DESIGNJET 500 DOESNT WORK


I would suggest taking out all the consumables. Printheads, media and cartridges. Unplug for upwards of 20 seconds before plugging it back in but leaving the consumables out.

Try turning on the plotter. If it appears working properly, load all consumables one by one, cartridges first, then printheads, then media. Attempt to print a test page if it works.

Or try a different outlet. Maybe the one your using has a problem and doesnt produce enough electricity.

Replacement carriage belt for HP DesignJet 800


The part number is; C7769-60182 runs at around $70.00.
This component needs to be installed by a service technician. You can seriously damage this plotter if you remove the carriage ribbon connectors and do not install them properly. You will fry the pca board (a $1,100 mistake).

Plotter needs recalibration


You need to enter the service calibrations menu, to do this select the set up menu, once inside the set up menu press the up arrow & enter keys together. This will take you to the service tools menu, from here select service calibrations (printhead alignment and colour calibration are both in this menu). If you still here problems after you have calibrated your machine or the calibration fail replace the printheads.
