Either the belt pulley is broken, or installed incorrectly, or the belt was installed backwards.

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.

there is an issue with your carriage assembly. it cannot move freely across the carriage rail assembly. the belt may be worn, lubricate the rail assembly or both.

Problem with Printhead Path


Something (not sure what) is obstructing the movement of the carriage assembly. Turn off the power and remove the cleaners. Push the carriage assembly out and pull/push the belt to move the carriage assembly until you find the bind. If you've recently changed the belt or carriage assembly, make sure you properly adjusted the carriage height.

Switch power off check printhead (1)


Good morning. The CHECK PRINT HEAD PATH error is caused by the sensors on the print head carriage sending signals to the electronics that the carriage speed is incorrect. Generally, this is a mechanical problem caused by an obstruction, such as a paper jam or some other item in the paper path. However, the most common reason for the error is a worn out carriage belt. Look under the belt to see if there is debris resembling pencil erasure crumbs. If the crumbs are present, your belt is disintegrating and needs to be replaced.

Printhead


When the plotter goes through its initialization, it stops, the printheads move to the right side and the window displays "switch power off, check printhead path (2)" I've turned the power of an wiped things down, I've unplugged and then restarted but continue to get this message. What do I need to look for or do to get it back on track?
