DesignJet System Error 86:01

HP DesignJet 500 / 510 / 800 Series System error 86:01

System error 86:01 is usually a Carriage Belt failure, or it may just be friction on the Carriage Rail - the chrome bar the carriage runs along.

The first thing you could try is "Turn the printer off and allow a few minutes for printer to cool, then turn the printer back on again."

You could try cleaning and lubricating the Carriage Rail using a suitable oil.

If this does not resolve the error, the Carriage Belt will most likely need replacing. Can you see little black crumbs under the lid?  Please email for a DesignJet Repair quotation.  We can attend at your office and carry out DesignJet repairs on your HP DesignJet 500, 510 or 800 printer.
