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.

Received my order quickly and just as ordered. I had a question after we installed it, and they were very helpful!


I had the carriage belt disintegrate on me. Fearing I needed to call a tech to fix it, I searched for solutions and instead found the Designjet Store, which had a replacement. The new belt is a perfect fit and the video Designjet posted on their website was invaluable as an aid to installing the belt. Without it, I'm not sure I could have replaced the belt.
