Two thing you need to check:
1. Are you replaced genuine carriage belt?.. Original belt having two type of inner tracks.. Right side horizontal & left side vertical tracks. Are you fixed it properly or not..
2. Check carriage assembly play.If it is over play(carriage bushes may be warn out) alignment won't complete, If bushes are available in your country replace them & do the calibration..If not go down how to alter bush. see the snap shot
3. While carriage movement pl check trailing cable flexibility.
Carriage Bush:

Un screw screws both sides as shown in fig, take out bushes estimate how much warn out happened.
Thing needed:

Cut miler sheet in to small peace & insert warn out place of bush(between bush & rail) & apply glue, fix it permanently,do it both sides & check for the carriage play.. once its finished try for alignment.. For this activity no need to remove carriage assembly from the rail. Main aim is alter bush warn out..

86:01 error in designjet 500 plus Paper jam...


System Error: 86:01
Problem Description: Carriage-Axis shutdown.
Corrective Action:
If this error code appeared but was NOT caused by a paper jam, then try the following:
  • Too much friction in the Slider Rod. Enter the Printer Information utility and check the Scan-Axis usage. If the percentage is close to 100%, then lubricate the Slider Rod.
  • 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
  • Perform the Carriage Movement test

How do I replace the carriage drive belt on designjet 500


there is nothing easy about this problem. you need torx 8,9,10, and 15 drivers. remove the right cover, remove the service station without breaking it, remove the right frame that holds the service station,release the belt tensioner, remove the encoder strip, remove the display, disconnect the trailing cables, remove the belt, remove the carriage assembly, replace the belt, reverse the process. please be discouraged about this process. this is not an easy repair. if you can find someone someone who is certified on this repair it should take them 60-90 minutes. you can look up the cost of the belt at HP Parts Store. there are only 2 models 24" or 42". my recommendation would be to find an authorized hp dealer. ask them for a quote, the pricing should vary between $300-400. if you can find it cheaper i would be highly suspect and if you've had this printer for awhile then spend the money. make sure they clean and lubricate the rail assembly. good luck!

more than likely the slot in your carriage assembly is faulty. try cleaning the contacts on the carriage assembly if that doesn't help, than more than likely you need to replace the carriage assembly and also the trailing cables. if you are going to keep this printer for awhile than you should also replace the carriage belt. if you can find a certified hp repair person, the cost should be around $500-600.
