hp designjet 5500ps

I am working on a designjet 5500ps i replaced the carriage belt when they print after printing it makes a 1sec grinding noise after printing.  It is printing no errors and I dont know if it was doing it before the belt was replaced.

Clean & lubricate the silver metal rod... also clean the encorder strip.

 

My Z3200 44" made faint screaming sound once in a while & I keep clean & lubricate it. It helps a lot.

I do the same for all my 4 machines always.

Guess what I use now ?

 

Those lubrican oil very expensive & some crazy selling over $80 online . I bought few bottle of watch /clock oil  on Ebay, 15 mil $1.99 each included shipping. there are 2 colors   clear or light gold   . I picked the clear.

 

super nice & I iike it better. but not easy to apply. I used paper towel or finger.
