    Has anybody found motor brushes for the FB500 carriage drive motor? The motor is made by Ametek exclusively for Flextronics in Singapore and cost us about $1000. But if I could find motor brushes (with springs) I could get back to work for just a few bucks. Any help is appreciated.

    Look for a local electrical repair vendor, google something like "electric graphic service+ name of my city". That or ask a local commercial printer who they use to fix their machines.

    Is there anyone who can help me to find a new carriage drive motor for my HP FB700? I would like to replace it, but buying from HP directly would cost a lot... So I am looking for an other way to purchase a motor.

    It's the motor brushes that get used up. The brushes are a consumable and need to be replaced.
