That's exactly what it needs. open unit spray WD-40 on a cloth and wipe the silver carriage bar.
run a few times so it can lube itself.

ERROR 86:01


General causes are media or other obstructions in the carriage path, the trailing cable, worn carriage bushings, lack of lubrication in the carriage path, a dirty encoder strip, the scan-axis motor, or the service station. Follow the steps listed below to accurately troubleshoot the issue, and replace the appropriate parts.
1. Visually check for jammed media or other obstructions in the carriage path and remove any obstructions found (remove any loaded media as well).
2. Determine if the noise is normal. Some noise is normal. Specifically, it is normal to hear a slight clicking noise when the carriage moves under the left or the right-hand covers.
3. If an 86:01 error occurs during initialization and the carriage does not move out of the Service Station continue Step 4, otherwise go to Step 5.
4. Remove the right cover and check the cable connection between the Interconnect PCA and the Service Station motor. If connections appear normal, replace the Service Station
5. Attempt to verify functionality, if problems persist, continue with the remaining steps.
6. Unlock the carriage as instructed below:
a. Highlight the Set-Up menu and press the Enter key.
b. Press the Up Arrow and Enter keys simultaneously and then press Enter.
c. Scroll to Service Utilities and then press Enter.
d. Scroll to Unlock Carriage and press Enter.
e. Unplug the printer from the power source.
7. Move the carriage manually through the entire movement path to see if it encounters any obstructions or has more resistance in any particular spot. Remove any such obstructions if possible.
8. Clean and lubricate the carriage rail.
9. Slide the carriage manually back and forth several times to evenly spread the lubrication across the entire carriage rail.
10. Turn the printer on and attempt to verify functionality.

Doesn't hold left margin it will make a noise and margin moves over, sometimes to the far left and sometimes to the right to the middle of the carriage.


Try doing a comlete clear to see if it helps....this will clear all memory.!
Switch the unit Off...then while holding down the margin release key switch the power backON.
The machine will begin printing lines of a pre-programmed test page.
Switch the unit back OFF.
Wait 5~10 seconds and switch the unit back on. At this stage the unit is back to factory defaults.
The only other thing to try is to check the silver shaft the carriage slides across on....make sure it is clean, and lubricate the shaft with a lightweight oil.

CX3200. When printing A4 document in normal mode, it starts correctly then after maybe half a dozen lines there's much clunking and whirring and the print realigns itself more to the centre of the page,...


it could be one of 2 things, your carriage shaft might be dirty and needs lubricating. when the printhead goes left and right, if it has to work hard to do it, the part that holds the belt could be releasing tension causing a noise. another possibility is the screw that is holding the part that holds the belt is loose and needs tightening.

Trying to find a schematic assistance to an error reported "system error 86:01" for my hp designjet 800.


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 (→ Page 4-26) 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 → Page 8-52.
 Perform the Carriage Movement test → Page 4-8. Okay this is the error code direct from the service manual. if lubricating the slider rod does not resolve this issue then you have other problems. more than likely the carriage belt is in need of replacement. check inside of printer for debris. check under the carriage assembly. see if you are able to move the carriage assembly smoothly from side to side. hope this helps.

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Problem with scanning both from the auto feeder and from scanner glass


this is what HP has to say

This document applies to all HP product models. Issue When the product is turned on or in the middle of an operation, an unexpected noise occurs, such as clicking, thumping, or grinding. Blinking lights and error codes might accompany the noise. NOTE: Noises can be caused by a number of things. This document focuses on isolating, identifying, and resolving known causes of product noises. Solution Noises are subjective and can be difficult to describe. Some noises are normal to the operation of the product and might include the following:
  • The product might make humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage moves around on the right or left side of the product while cleaning the ink cartridges. This is normal when a product is turned on, before and after printing, after a product has been on standby for some time, after replacing an ink cartridge, or in the middle of a large print job.
  • During a print job, the movement of rollers, gears, carriage, and paper (paper feed and ejection) creates some noise.
  • During a print job, if the product is printing in the fast or draft mode, the noise level might be higher than when using the best or normal mode.
  • At the end of the print job, a louder clicking noise occurs as the paper is pushed to the output tray.
  • At the end of a print job, a noise emanates from the left or right side of the product as the pens are capped. The product might try to do this a couple of times.
Abnormal noises are a symptom of a problem. The most accurate way to determine the origin of a noise is to isolate where it comes from and when it occurs. Use the following steps to try to isolate the noise issue. NOTE: Error codes might indicate the source of the noise. Make a note of any error code or blinking lights that appear. Step one: Check for loose or broken parts
  1. Raise the cover of the product.
  1. Check inside for loose or broken parts.
  2. If there are broken parts, the product needs to be serviced.
  3. Step two: Make sure that accessories are installed correctly
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Remove the power cord from the back of the product and unplug the power cord from the power source.
  3. Check any accessories (duplexer, envelope feeder, automatic document feeder (ADF)) to make sure each is installed and seated correctly.
  4. Plug the power cord into the back of the product and plug the power cord back into the power source.
  5. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
  6. If the noise still persists, remove each accessory one at a time to try to determine if the noise is associated with a single accessory or a combination.
  7. If the noise stops when a specific accessory is removed, that part might need to be replaced. If possible, exchange the accessory with a known good one or a new one to determine if the noise is associated with the accessory. NOTE: If the product is fully functional with the accessory in place, the noise might be normal.
  8. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
Step three: Check connection with computer Turn off the computer to determine if the computer is the source of the noise. If the noise persists, proceed to Step four. If the noise stops when the computer is turned off, try to isolate any issues with connectivity:
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the product.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and from the back of the product.
  4. Wait a couple of minutes to allow static to be discharged.
  5. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet and plug the power cord into the back of the product.
  6. Connect the product to a different USB port.
  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
  9. If the noise persists, service the product.
Step four: Check for a paper jam Paper jams can prevent the internal components of the product from moving, which can create unusual noises.
  1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  3. Remove the rear access door.
  4. Remove any paper that is inside the product by pulling it out through the rear access door and then securely replace the rear access door.
    1. If a paper jam cannot be removed from the back of the product, raise the product cover, carefully remove the paper jam from the front of the product, and then lower the cover.
    NOTE: Remove any paper jam carefully as it is possible to damage the product when removing a jam from the front of the product.
    1. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product.
    2. Reload the paper in the paper tray.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
    4. Try to print. If a jam is cleared and the product prints, but the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
    5. Step five: Make sure that the carriage moves freely
    1. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn off the product.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the product.

    1. Make sure that the ink cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to prevent it from moving.
    2. Close the product cover and reconnect the power cord.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product.
    4. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step.
    5. Step six: Plug the product into a wall outlet
    If the product is plugged into an uninterruptible power supply, that source might make a beeping or whistling noise.
    1. Unplug the power cord from any power strips or surge protectors.
    2. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead.
    3. Press the power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the product. If the noise persists, proceed to the next step. If the noise stops when plugged directly into a wall outlet, the power strip or surge protector might not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product and might need to be replaced.
    Step eight: Service the product If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.
