This replacement is moderately difficult to complete, and requires about one hour of time. These belts often become worn down because they are in constant motion when the printer is printing. Replacing a worn down or broken belt will add years to the printer's lifespan.

Begin to disassemble the printer by disconnecting from all power sources and computers.  Keep cords separate and allow the printer to cool for 5 minutes.
