1. Clean the silver bar with an alcohol-soaked cloth. DO NOT LUBRICATE WITH ANYTHING!.

2. Perform the bi-directional print adjust using the procedure in the service manual. Alternatively, set the printer to UNI-DIRECTIONAL=YES int he applicable FORM menu.

Carriage belt failures usually show up as HEAD STALLs or the print columns mis-align and stay misaligned (which can also be cased by a faulty encoder on the carriage motor or by a main board failure).

Sounds like a worn timing belt. You can order a new one from allprintersupply.com.

Remove and replace steering coloum 1996 Grand Prix se

Courtesy of Yahoo answers:
The column itself is not that hard to replace in most gm vehicles. take lower valance panel off under the dash to expost the majority of the column. if you look under the hood you will see something that looks like a small universal joint called a rag joint which connects the column to the steering rack, this is normally held in by a pinch bolt, remove the bolt but dont slide anything apart yet. next get in the car and make sure the front wheels are straight ahead and the steering wheel is straight ( this will make things easier to line up when reinstalling)
disconnect the battery now so you dont arc anything or set off any air bags during the rest of the repair.
under the dash on the column itself should be 4 bolts that go through the brackets that hold the column to the underside of the dash, remove these 4 bolts and the column should drop down. this will allow you to disconnect any electrical connections to the column. once electrics and mount bolts are undone the colum should be able to be slid out ( there will be resistance from the pinch bolt but a bit of force will get it off)
set column side by side with the replacement and make sure they are identical.
if all looks the same then just reverse the procedure to install ( pinch bolt is the hardset thing to line up and it is a good idea to have an extra set of eyes around to help you line it up) reclip the electrics, bolt up the mounts, put bolt in pinch bolt and reattach the battery
