HP DesignJet T1100ps not worked in 3 years

DesignJet T1100ps

I just got a DesignJet T1100ps and it has not been used in 3 years, bad star wheel motor I was told. Is there anything I need to do after replacing star wheel motor. For instance is there going to be a problem with the printheads and the ink system. I am new with the large format printing so any advice will be great. I can replace the bad motor but I would rather do what it takes or needs to operate smoothly. And would rather do everything I could all at the same time. I see I will need a new carriage belt also. Please help me the best you can to prevent me spending money I do not need to.

First , you have to boot it up & see what erros come up  , then solve the problem one by one. also need to check    


do cleaning for the trailing cable, silver metal rod, the lubricate it, also check   belt ,     printheads    ,    inks  etc etc     , 


Treat it as a learning lesson & you must master it if you intend to use your large format printer..

Everyone went thru it  before for sure.


Myself first time changed my  DJ500 42" belt & took me 2 weeks & kept  my fingers & toes crossed.
