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).

It is not recommended that the user replace the carriage belt, on any HP printer. Any damage caused by the user, won't be covered by the warranty and will likely result in a completely useless, but very expensive doorstop. Or paperweight..

I do believe your printer has since been discontinued for support, however only an HP Customer Service Representative would be able to confirm that. I would suggest phoning HP for technical support or to at least confirm whether support is available.

Even if your printer is no longer a) under warranty, which I suspect it's not, or b) out of support completely, they may be able to provide you with a list of Authorized Service Providers (ASPs) within your area.

The belt that moves the carriage back and forth may be broken. Have a certified technician verify this and you may be able to have the belt replaced.

Hp psc 2175 all in one carriage belt is broken and cannot find replacement


Hi,

Carriage belt is not a user replaceable part. Hence you cannot replace it by yourself. This unit should be repaired by an HP authorized technician. Please contact the nearest service center to repair it. But I think the repair cost is close to the price of a new printer.

The print cartridge will not move


There is a "belt" (with pulleys at each end, and the carrridge in the middle) that pulls the carriage from edge-to-edge.

If that belt is broken, or the clamp that connects the belt to the carriage is broken, the carriage will not move.

It's cheaper to replace the printer, and responsibly recycle the old printer, than it would be to try to repair the printer.

The belt that moves the printer carriage is broken.


The best way to find a replacement part is to find a non-working printer of the same make and model. HP's are very common and by searching the major ebay or craiglist website you will likely find one. Otherwise, post on one of the possible sites that you are looking for a non-working printer.

Help with my k5400


It's possible you have one of the following problems:
  • Printhead is faulty
  • The printhead has expired (HP printheads have an expiry date which is written into the chip)
    In both of these cases contact HP support to request a warranty replacement (but try the ideas below first obviously :))

  • The printhead hasn't been inserted properly
  • The chip contacts are dirty or soiled in some way
    For these last two, try removing the printhead, cleaning the chip carefully with a cotton bud and then replacing carefully.
It's also entirely possible that you've been sold a lemon in which case you need to call the store you bought the printer from and get them to troubleshoot the issue with you and/or replace it/refund your money.

Hope that helps.
