Hi mark,
  Thanks for your patience.We are here to offer help in any way and we already offered you text information.Regardsing diagrams, it's not available with any of the experts as it's illegal to distribute copyright service manuals here.
  Usually HP recommends that you should not open Hp 5500 design jet printer, However as you already did that...We can offer you link for service manual as we never deal with it.
i don't believe so its under warranty as you opened it , anyway if so you have already voided the warranty.The lin would be :-

I advise to purchase it from ebay...Its cost effective and also helps you for future problems.
Thanks for using Fixya.

    Hi Wilprint09,



    These are not common machines. You could hardly find the explanatory diagrams with any of the experts.



    I have checked the links once again. All are working. I do agree there is a cost effective charge for the manuals, However, that's the only option we have.



    I can explain everything . However, i do not have any diagrams.



    Any further help, let me know.



    Thanks for using Fixya.

6. Slide Carriage Assembly to position shown.

HP Designjet 800ps 24". How


Instructions are usually supplied with the belt, however if you are looking for the manual, you can find it here!

On my HP 1050C Designjet I am getting the error 'Check printhead path Type 2. Then it says to switch off.


Hello. The "Check Print Head Path" error is usually a worn out carriage belt on printers more than 5 years old. Open the top cover and examine the area under the belt and look for debris that looks like pencil erasure crumbs. Other possible problems could be the tube system catching on something as the carriage moves, the encoder strip being very dirty or extreme friction between the carriage bushings and the rails they move on. If the belt needs to be replaced, a replacement kit can be purchased at: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-790-hp-designjet-belt-replacement-kits.aspx
Hope this helps.

How can I replace the belt for the ink carriage


Here is an HP Support Forum where a user has posted a detailed procedure for the belt replacement.

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=846691

The Service Manual is needed. It's available at:
http://www.hylink.com/PrinterManual.html
Designjet 430, 450, 455C - Service Manual
DesignJet 430, 450C, 455CA - Quick Reference Service Manual

As mentioned, it's a delicate and time consuming operation. I replaced my belt two years ago with little problem. (Be sure to clean the old degraded belt gunk off the drive pully too!)

It's not a job for "Beginners". More like "Intermediate" or "Advanced".

Good Luck!

This is the part I ordered. It was $15
WARNING: THIS IS FOR THE "E-SIZE" MACHINE.
If you have the smaller one, you must research the part number for that.

DESIGNJET 755cm ERROR MESSAGE: TURN OFF PLOTTER CHECK PAPER PATH. THERE IS NO OBVIOUS BLOCKAGE TO PAPER PATH


If there is no obvious obstruction in the print head path, the most likely problem is a worn carriage belt. Open the front lid and check for rubber crumbs under the carriage belt. If there are crumbs, the belt is disintegrating and needs to be replaced.

The service manual can be downloaded from: www.lpscomputer.com/ec/manuals.htm and the parts are available at: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-736-designjet-1050c-belt.aspx

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.

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).
