HP Officejet 7500a - "Cartridge Belt" Snapped - HELP!

HP Recommended
Officejet 7500a
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello All!

When attempting to print today I noticed that the printer was not actually functioning.
An error appeared on the screen of the printer stating "A Carriage Jam" had occurred.
Upon opening the printer up, it became evident that a component within the printer had snapped.

Could someone please assist in answering the below questions:

1.) Am I right in thinking this component is known as the "Cartridge belt"
2.) Is this a readily available, replaceable item?
2a.) If so, is there any material (Videos, How-To's) that could aid in replacing this?

Hi All

 

Does anyone know were I can buy a replacement cartridge belt,   the belt started slipping, as a result the gears stripped the teeth on the belt. Need a new belt. I've tried the HP part surfer but with no success.  

 

(wide format A3 printer)

 

(I'am not impressed that it is so difficult to find a belt even at HP. 

Does this mean I need to buy a new printer just because HP cannot supply a belt.)

 

Please help
