Very carefully, if you can find a belt replacement. i would be surprized if you can find the part. this printer has been out of production for quite some time. remove the left cover, remove the right cover, (you need torx drivers #'s 8,9,10,15,20,25) on the left side, remove the encoder strip, lock the belt tensioner, remove the screws to remove the belt tensioner, remove the carriage assembly, don't forget to remove the trailing cables, make sure you replace the belt exactly the way it came off the carriage assembly and reverse the process to put it all back together. if you can find a certified repair person who can find the parts and has the tools, that might be the way to go. this repair should cost $300-400. if the repair person knows what they are doing. hope this helps.

Design jet 750 won't go into test mode


check to see if the belt that you changed was reinstalled correctly
with the proper tension because if the belt is too tight or too loose
these simptoms may be the result of poor adjustment.you need
just a small amount of play in that belt where you can take your index finger and softly poke the belt which should have a small
amount of play.go over what you did so that you can find where you have went astray

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.

HP 500ps showing error is System error 86:01


System Error: 86:01
Problem Description: Carriage-Axis shutdown.
If this error code appeared but was NOT caused by a paper jam, then try the following:
* Too much friction in the Slider Rod. 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

CHECK PRINTHEAD PATH


Check to make sure that the front top of the L bracket that shields the ink tubes on the carriage is not rubbing against the inside top front metal edge that is just behind the clear plastic cover. And make sure your rails are cleaned and then oiled with NYE oil. There is a problem with the design of this machine, where there is a bracket on the top of the carriage assembly that pushes the ink tubes towards the inside front of the machine causing unneccesary rubbing.

Check printhead path


Check for free carriage motion by unplugging the printer while the carriage is in the print area of the plotter. Open the top cover and move the carriage to check for free movement. If there are rubber crumbs under the belt, the belt is worn out and needs to be replaced. Manual can be downloaded from: www.lpscomputer.com/ec/manuals.htm

Replacement carriage belt for HP DesignJet 800


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).
