You will need some fine needle nose pliers or some forceps where you can get into a tight spot. Replacing belts can be a chore but it is not impossible.

I have an error message pump motor stalled on my Photosmart Printer 8200. Can you help?


On the left hand side (Facing the printer) behind side cover sits a micro pump for the ink. Pull cover and check that belt is OK from gear to micro pump. You should be able to just turn back and forth- not too much, the large pulley on the pump. There will be some friction here..... I think you can turn on machine OK with this cover off and see if pulley is turning

Carriage belt is off, loose when on


Carriage belts are tensioned inside the machine on one of the idler pulleys. A belt that came off usually indicates there is a lubrication issue - one of the pulleys won't turn easy or the print head is binding on the slide shaft (Extremely common). The belt may have stretched (though unlikely) You may be able buy the belts from SDP-si.com in the US. This is just one of the sources. Try a printer repair shop.

There is a loose ribbed black/brown thin band inside the printer where the cartridges are changed-where does it belong please


Sounds like the carriage belt, it goes around a motor pulley on the far right side, and around a spring loaded idler pulley on the far left. It should also be connected to the carriage assembly to move the carriage back and forth.

HP6110 OfficeJet scanner squeaks


Make sure that the scanner is level and not twisted as this will put unnecessary strain on the scanner frame and pulleys. If your system has springs on the pulley cables then this may be the cause of the problem as they may be worn out or chafing or rusted and need replacing.

Also make sure that the guide rails are not obstructed and brush them out and clean thoroughly and if necessary carefully apply some silicone grease to them.

Also check that the carriage assembly is not bent or twisted which will put unnecessary strain on the drive mechanism and pulleys.

Also check that the pulleys are not bent or the pulley mounts are not bent.

My canon pixma mp530 makes a loud noise most times when it powers up and when i print a document. It works OK otherwise.


My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.

Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.

Scanner Locked Error


Scanner Lock -- a possible quicker fix

Instead of removing the entire glass plate, just remove the narrow glass strip to the far left. To do this, open the scanner top revealing the glass, and remove the philips screw centered on the left edge. With a thin flat-head screwdriver or even a good set of fingernails, you can then pry out the thin U-shaped plastic piece holding the glass strip in place.

When you remove the glass strip, you now have (narrow but sufficient) access to the scanner pulley and belt. Pull the spring-loaded pulley back towards your right to get some slack on the belt, then remove the belt from the pulley.

This frees up the scanner head, which you can now slide manually (by pulling gently on one end of the belt and giving slack on the other) to a center position well away from the scanner lock. When I first tried, I didn't move the scanner head far enough -- to the middle or beyond seems sufficient.

Push the scan lock to the full lock and then the full unlock position, to make sure it is now free.

Using fingers, screwdriver, and/or pliers, re-seat the belt on the pulley, once again using the freedom to move the spring-loaded pulley a bit to the right.

Replace the glass strip, plastic cover, and screw.

Power on the scanner. The error message should now be gone, and the scanner head should slide back to its resting position on startup (unless something is caught underneath, which was apparently the case for some who had this problem but was not the case for me). If the first power cycle doesn't do the trick, another power cycle might be helpful.

This approach eliminates the need to remove the scanner lid, control panel, and scanner glass.
