Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the part that you described is the encoder strip. It contains barcode like markings which tells the print head of its location. The easiest would be to look for a notch or opening at the rear of the print head/cartridge holder. It would have to fit in flat and then turn to standing position. An alternative is to remove one end of the encoder strip and slide it in the opening at the back of the print head and then reattach at the freed end. it would be required that the encoder be cleaned free of smudges/ink/marks as these would make the printer think there is a jam on the carriage.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Printer wont print black ink and its a new cartilage


Cross check that you have removed the strip of film on the cartridge which stops the toner coming out? there should be a piece of plastic to pull on with a strip of clear film across wherever the toner comes out..

Waste ink absorber is full and printer will not print


I found this guide, the most important part is pressing the ON button while you plug your usb and power leads after cleaning

first unplug the power cord and then the usb cord.
When you are done doing that, take the printer to an area where you have working space.
Put it down on some newspaper.
Open the lid. (Normally, when you open the lid with printer on, the cartridges will slide over to the left of the machine, this is important to remember for part of the cleaning).
Now, with printer lid up , look down inside the printer. you will see some plastic running horizontal with the printer ribbon, (the area I am referring to is right under where the ink cartriges slide back and forth)on the floor of the printer.
If you take your finger and feel inside, you will find a very thin, narrow piece of foam in between the plastic strips. You can gently remove this foam and clean it with denatured alcohol and let it completely dry before replacing. You can also go in and clean the plastic area with a Qtip, because there will be a residue of ink all over this area.
Also, right under where the ink cartridges park when opening the lid when plugged in is another small piece of rubber pad that should be cleaned too.
Once you have done this, and this is important.. before, and during the replugging of the usb plug and the power cord, YOU MUST keep the "on key" pressed in. This is going to help reset your printer once it's plugged in.
So keep your on button pressed down and plug both cords in. ONCE that's done, let go of the power button.
The yellow light might come on again, that's okay, just turn off your printer, wait a few seconds and turn it back on. It should work fine. We did this because we had read about holding in the button for resetting. If you clean the ink pads in the future you must do that because it actually is resetting something in your printer. Mine works just fine. I will add that I went through a lot of ink cartridges to get to this point but it is pretty easy to clean if you just take your time, be patient and carefully remove the foam not to damage it. Good luck

I have a MFC 240C...it is unable to clean 4F...i misplaced my user guide


That's often caused by a scrap of paper caught in the printer. You might be able to fix this with tweezers and a couple of minutes. Peer into the left & right ends of the opening for a scrap that might be keeping the printhead from going all the way to one end or the other. The paper is probably black with ink, so look carefully.
Another possibility is the timing strip - a narrow strip of gray film that runs across the print area. You can't get to it until you remove the top cover under the scanner section, so you might resort to taking this in for repair, but if you feel brave enough to unplug a few cables and remove that cover, you might find the strip lying flat on top of the printhead, instead of running vertical through a slot. If so, gently lift it and lower it into the slot without getting dirt or ink on the film, and your problems may be solved.
The gray in the film strip is hundreds of fine, vertical lines that the printer counts to keep track of where it is on the page. If it gets dirty or pushed out of its sensor, the printer is lost.

Error message 5100 on Canon MX300 printer


If the ink cartridges are stuck you can manually slide them back to their default position and check for paper or junk which may have slipped down the paper chute and is blocking the ink cartridges.
Remove the blockage
Reset Printer
Done
I just had this problem and it was easy to fix.
If this not help, buy another printer! Cheaper than service...

HP Color Laserjet 1500L doesnt always print yellow


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Carrier jam


This strip is called the encoder strip. I found this fix online, which is very similar to the 5470.

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/28494

The only difference you'll have is the encoder stip fits INSIDE the cartridge carrier. I'll attach a photo to show you where. Good luck!

Carrier jam on printer


There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.
