    Re: Designjet 1050c check printhead path type 1 (always on left side)

    If memory serves me correctly, there is a mylar disc on the end of the main roller with marks like the encoder strip. This is how the machine knows how to advance and retract the paper. One of my first ever work orders was replacing that disc on a 1050. Just like the encoder, if it is dirty or one of the marks is worn off, it will ruin your day.

    Democracy is still the worst form of government, except for all the rest of them.

    Replace the trailing cable mylar and apply a small amount of grease where the tubes come into contact with the inner panels.

    I use TriFlow .. but not the spray version.. you can get tooo much in there with the spray.. one or two drops on rail as you move the carriage back n forth ( one drop on each side of carriage)
    TriFlow has Teflon particles suspended in the oil... been using it for decades on printers.. plotters..fishing reels
