T1100 wont release cutter after belt replacement

HP Recommended
Designjet T1100PS
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Just replaced a shredded carriage belt on a T1100PS 44" plotter. Now I have two problems with the cutter. The carriage will pick up the cutter, cut the roll but apparently travel too far to the right and the cutter hits the frame causing a "possible paper jam" error OR after printing, the carriage picks up the cutter, cuts the roll fine, returns the cutter to the left side but does not release it. The carriage then returns to the right side and the cutter again hits the frame and causes the same "possobile paper jam" error. I can see and hear the cutter hitting the frame. When I manually manipulate the cutter into and out of the carriage it seems fine. I have lubed the rails and the cutter, the cutter is properly installed, I have run printhead calibration and cleaned the encoder strip, plunger and spring on the cutter move freely. All started after replacing the carriage belt. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Please open the cutter unit and use lubricant oil in the cutter spring unit. Maybe that part will not properly moved. Please clean also cutter movement path..if possible use lubricant oil in the carriage rail.
