Colin on September 24 2015

Tom was a huge help. Our IT guy said that this machine was outdated and just to buy a new  one which is around $4,500-$6,000. I reached out to Tom for help due to the 05:10 error and  he told me to replace the formatter board. Easy plug an play, less than a 5 min fix and it  is back up and running like it should for less then $300! Thank you very much Tom!

Rob on September 23 2015

Excellent service, prompt shipping, fair prices, plus plotter was up an running in no time,  what more can you ask for? Tom will be the first person I contact for future plotter part  purchases.

Mircea on September 02 2015

Good price, quick service, great support. Tom was very knowledgeable and helpful in  identifying the problem and recommending the correct solution. The board worked perfectly  and our plotter was back in business in the minute following the card installation. This is  definitely the first place I’ll call in the future for any problem with HP devices …

Sharon on August 17 2015

Tom was awesome! We needed this part right away and he went out of his way to help. We went  back and forth on the shipping method-and he was very patient for me. Also, gave us tips as  to why our cards kept getting ruined. I would definitely deal with Tom again. Frank on August 14 2015 at 04:40PM

This is my second purchase from Tom. Thank you for having the right parts at a reasonable price.

Ronald on August 14 2015

Finding the part for my hp designjet 500 was very easy to find on your site, Talking with Tom showed me what an expert he is in this field. Ordering was a dream(simple.) For action and delivery 100%. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Ps.I have already recommended you to to my friends who can do with your service.

Tony on May 05 2015

This was my third purchase from this place and all have been smooth and trouble free  transactions. fast shipping and product as described. will do business again and recommend  this seller.

S. True on April 17 2015

Tom was very helpful and worked with me to see if I would be able to put an HP-GL/2 into my  HP Designjet 500 that didn’t have one installed. He sent it to me to see if it would work  and it worked flawlessly allowing me to print from a couple of our computers that haven’t  been able to send a print to our plotter for years. Will definitely come back for any  future needs.

B Bouapha on April 07 2015

Tom was very accommodating in rushing our urgent need for our parts. We didn’t need  everything and he did not have a problem accepting our return. He is ALWAYS available and  in this industry, I’m pretty sure everyone agrees that we all need HELP ASAP!! Thanks for everything Tom!

Steve on March 27 2015

Great service, quick shipping. What more can you ask for! Will reach out to Tom for future designjet plotter issues.

N Enloe on March 21 2015

Quick service, excellent follow up, card worked first time we powered up. Will definitely use again.

Ryan on March 11 2015

Tom is a super nice guy and easy to deal with. He explained everything to me with patience  and went out of his way to accommodate our need to have the 510 GL/2 card sent to me UPS  Next Day! Don’t know if the printer is fixed yet because I just ordered the part 5 minutes  ago, but I will keep my fingers crossed. Either way, Tom was great!

Turn off the plotter using the power button on the menu. Now turn back on and use the instructions below to enter diagnostics mode.

 

Entering the Diagnostics Menu

NOTE: In some cases a quick press of a button may not be recognized by the printer. When pressing a button, be sure to press it deliberately and all the way to the bottom of its travel.

Designjet Belt Sale $9.99 April 10 2015, 0 Comments

Designjet Belts

There are two easy ways to tell if your designjet 500 or designjet 800 printer needs its belt replaced. The first way is the most obvious, the carriage is jammed and will not move. Mostlikely, what has happened is the belt has become so frayed that it has split and is wrapped around the motor head on the right side. The other symptom of a faulty belt is a system error 86:10. This error generally indicates the belt is approaching the same state as the first case described.

The 86:10 error also may be due to a dirty encoder strip. The encoder strip is the metal strip running the length of the carriage axis and is how the carriage knows where it is located during the plot. Generally, taking a damp paper towel and wiping both sides of the encoder strip clean with your thumb and fore finger will clean it well enough to remedy it.

The best way to determine if your belt is defective is to open the front window and look below the belt the whole length of the printer. Specifically, run you finger along the axis below the belt and see if there are tiny black belt particles on the metal chassis. If there are, this is a good indication that your belt is defective and needs replaced.

To replace the belt, please watch the youtube videos provided in the product link.

Also, if you have any questions, please call me at 260.348.5653.  

Part Numbering System

HP has many part numbers for the same part. They like to issue a new part number for a new lot being released for consumption. With carriage belts, the part numbering system is pretty simple.

Designjet 500, 510, and 800 24" belts are C7769-60182

Designjet 500, 510, and 800 42" belts are C7770-60014

HP service manual response to the system error 86:10

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. 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.

System Error: 61:05

A related error is System Error: 61:05. A 61:05 is a formatter card with the sniffles before it becomes a cold (05:10) and needs replaced.

Designjet 450c Line Sensor error March 18 2015, 0 Comments

If your Designjet 450c fails to detect the edge of the paper when loading, your line sensor on the carriage assembly AND trailing cable needs to be replaced. Over time, the trailing cable will wear out and short the line sensor, which is located on the carriage assembly.

HP Designjet 61:05 error March 12 2015, 0 Comments

System Error: 61:05

A related error is System Error: 61:05. A 61:05 generally means the firmware on the Designjet is older than what the formatter board (GL/2 accessory card) requieres. Check the firmware. If it is less than version 4, you need to upgrade the firmware in order for the newer board to work.

Designjet GL/2 Accessory Card or Formatter Board

The designjet 500, 510, and the 800 all have what are called a GL/2 Accessory Card or Formatter Board installed. Both terms refer to the same part. These board provided advance CAD features and expanded memory. It is not uncommon for them to become defective and need replaced.

The feedback I get from customers is that the main cause of the error is the printer is left on continuously. Resulting in a power surge thru the line that corrupts the ROM chip. Make sure to check your ground to neutral reading on your outlets. Faulty wiring will result in more errors.

Designjet 05:10 Error Code

If you are getting a 05:10 Error Code -- You Must Replace Your GL/2 Accessory Card or Formatter Board. A 05:10 error on the front panel of the printer indicates a formatter card failure. This issue usually does not require on-site service, as the formatter card is a user-replaceable part. It is a simple fix. The card is located on the back side nearest the power cable plug. There are two expansion cards. One is the network card. The GL/2 card is labeled and needs to be replaced. Simply unscrew it and slide out of the slot.

Part Numbering System

HP has many part numbers for the same part. They like to issue a new part number for a new lot being released for consumption. Here is a breakdown of popular part numbers. Designjet 510 model has three different part numbers: Designjet 510 CH336-60001 Designjet 510 CH336-67001 Designjet 510 CH336-80001 Designjet 500 C7772A

Please confirm that you have a Designjet 500 printer. The 500 GL/2 Card will not work in a Designjet 510 printer. I have had several customers with a Designjet 510 purchase the 500 GL/2 Card. The 500 GL/2 Card does not work in their printer. This will caused delays with exchanging the 500 card for the 510 card.

Designjet 800 has nearly ten different part numbers.

HP service manual response to the error System error 05:10

Recommended action:

Turn the printer off and unplug the power cable from the back of the printer.

Remove the HP-GL/2 accessory card and re-install the HP-GL/2 accessory card.
