Anyone know where I can download service manuals for HP DesignJet800
Ours has a toothed belt which I believe controls the print head position
across the platten.
This is rapidly shredding and the mechanism is making a concerning clunk
each time it moves to the rhs of the machine.
From Googling, it looks like this belt is a regular issue with this plotter.
You will probably be better off getting an authorized repair person to
look at it... a couple of our HP DesignJets had similar problems and it
took more than just a new belt to get them working again - think they
also had to replace some of the nylon gears/belt spindles and
recalibrate the whole mess.... remember it taking them at least two~four
hour on each machine as they had to be nearly completely disassembled to
do the work and then put it back together....
We just had a belt replaced on our HP-700. After the service man put it
in we discovered that the paper slicer contraption was bent and he had
to "adjust" it so the plotter would work. Don't know what the final
cost was - thankfully I don't have to pay the bill!
