1. How difficult is it to replace the carriage belt?
If you have average mechanical skills, and the instructions are followed, most people can replace the belt and calibrate the printer without calling for technical assistance. If you have apprehensions about doing the replacement yourself, perhaps you can find another person with technical skills to help you.

2. How long will it take to replace the belt?
An experienced technician can do the work in less than an hour. Allow yourself 2 to 4 hours for the first time through.

NASA, JPL, The Goddard Space Center, and many universities buy LPS belt kits. They trust us and you can too.

HP Designjet Carriage Belt

Worked great. Solved our issue.


Product and video were both wonderful!

Fixed it!

Did this job via the youtube video and complete set from LPS. Was great for the install, it's about a 3 hour job, and no surprises with the 30 minute video to review.

Carriage Belt replacement kit for the HP 5000 Designjet 42" Printer

The kit worked perfectly and the online video enabled me to do a job that I would not have been able to figure out without it. I did not use the printed instructions, though I was glad to have them for reference but instead kept replaying sections of the video. My only suggestion is that the instructions left some things out, that may have seemed obvious to the instructor but not to me. Also it would have been helpful to see something more on putting it all back together after. All in all, it was a positive experience as I was able to figure it out in the end. I would recommend this kit and the company to anyone looking to restore an HP printer. Unfortunately, after it ran for a couple of days, it shut down again. I think this time I may need a new trailing cable. At least now I have the confidence that with LPS, I will be able to install one.
