Your carrage belt probably needs replacing. Try and lubricate the shaft slightly with a drop of sewing machine oil. Look around either end of the belt where it goes around the motor on left side and tension pulley on left side, do you see a lot of purpleish bits/dust. If you do then the belt needs replacing.

Error 010032 00070b18

SYSTEM ERROR 010060 is a Primer Motor sensor problem, Sensor might be bad, motor might not be turning, cable could have failed, or main PCA might be bad.

070020 Is a drop detect sensor error, the sensor is part of the service station.

The check cartridge path indicates that the carriage rails need lubrication, use a light silicone or synthetic lubricant, (it could be other things, but this is the most likely), you also might need to replace the belt.Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

Error message is Alignment Problem, but the cartridges have no clear tape on them...and have been printing with these cartridges for a while. They are not empty

Try to remove the cartridges from your printer. Check the cartridge area and make sure there are no debris or obstructions in the cartridge carrier path. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for errors. If none, reinsert the other cartridge. Check for errors. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You may also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

Everytime I turn on the designjet 750c plus, it tells me to turn power off and check cartridge path.

Make sure you have the correct cartridges and that the tape has been removed.
You can try a new set of cartridges and see if that solves your problem.
I hope this helps.
Have a good day and good luck.

Sounds like it can not find home. Is there a limit switch? If not there may be a failure in the counter from the stepper motor.

I don't know of a service center but try this while your looking. A little bit of light oil on the shaft (drops or wipe DO NOT SPRAY oil in the machine) the carrier rides on should make the unit work. The shaft becomes dirty and dry over time and the carrier can bind.
Hope this helps

Cartridge path

By it going back and forth means all is ok with the encoder strip. Sounds like its asking for a bit of lubrication. There is a special oil available from HP for the carrage. This also works for tha large format machines using plastic bushes such as 500, 800, T610, new 510 etc.

Open up the top and look into the cartridge/paper print area. Look in the corners, Sometimes little pieces of paper can still be stuck there. Once you are convinced that the paper and cartridge path is clear then...

Pull out the paper tray. Look inside the opening. If there is paper there then pull it out.

Take all of the paper out of the paper tray.
Turn it over (paper on top is now on the bottom of the tray)

Try it now.
