Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I think my cat got into my printer, as one day it was working great, and then the next time I tried to use it, it made a very loud noise, pulled a sheet of paper in and stopped. An E is now in the display on the printer. I noticed a thin plastic strip sitting next to the printer. It is long and has 2 small holes, one on each end. It is clear on the ends, but charcoal colored on the rest of it. On each end there is a small dot and a triangle that appears to be a directional type of triangle. I am unable to see where it goes in the printer, but am thinking it is the source of my problem. What do you think?
Perhaps this is the printhead assembly position "tape." On looking at this tape, are there tiny vetical lines on it? If so, then this is how the printer detects head position, as a sensor & associated circuitry counts how many lines the head has moved. It may attach at one end to a fixed hook, & with a spring like hook at the other end. It will have to be routed through the noted sensor also. This might be tricky if you don't possess some technical skills.
