Question about Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

4 Answers

Dell 410 strip popped out of somewhere

It was scanning fine then a strip [clear]about 1/4 in wide with two holes in the end just popped out of the bottom where the roller is. the strip has arrows pointing down on each end.

If someone knows how to fix this I would appreciate it. And if so, please tell me how to get into the unit to do so

Thanks much

    It makes a horrible clunking sound. The cartridge does not return to the middle as it should either. I dont think it is a packing strip.

See if you can find out where it popped out and put it back in place.they do that at times and you have to put it back for the machine to work again

Occasionally that strip will pop out when you need a new roller. Check the roller and make sure it is not worn.

Hi! This strip is nothing but a support for the scanning glass and the moving part of the scanner to prevent it from moving too far from the scan area. You need to open the screws provided at the bottom (if its out of warranty) else call the Dell Care at 1-800-624-9897(For USA) & 1-800-915-3355

Hi there
Try use the scanner and printer as you normally would, then get back to us with the results because it sounds like the packaging strip

Good luck

Error message clear carrier jam, when I opened the top of the Dell Photo 926 a long clear strip fell out, What do I do to fix this.


The long clear strip is the encoder strip that the cartridge carriage reads to know where it is in the printer. It should not have just fallen out. There should be a small hole at each end of the strip to attach it to points in the printer. If one of those holes is broken you might as well get a new printer. Paying someone to buy a new encoder strip and install it will most likely cost more than the machine itself.

I have a dell V305 Printer and there is a plastic strip that has fallen off from somewhere inside. Can you advise as to what this strip is for and if it can be reinstered?


If it's a clear plastic with black lines on it, it's the encoder strip. If the holes on the end are not torn out, it installs inside from the right side to the left side, one side has a spring to connect to and the other side has a solid hook on the frame. It has to thread thru a sensor slot at the rear of the carriage assembly in order to work.

Okay I turned off our 2400 lexmark and when I went to turn it back on a thin strip gray colored and about 1/8-1/4 wide with arrows at each end where does this go?how do I fix it can it be fixed?


If the holes on the end are not torn, The arrow points up and it threads thru a hole above and behind the ink carts, it connects with a spring on one side and a hook on the other.

Carrier Jam


This is what my printer did when it kicked of the 14" plastic strip inside the printer(see posts referring to strip). Look inside for a loose, quarter inch wide and 14" long plastic strip with slots on the end. Let me know if you solve this.

'Band?'
Does it look like a strip of clear plastic with very fine vertical lines?
Or, does it have teeth molded into it?

The former is used to determine the position of the carriage and is normally mounted through a narrow slot in the carriage and should have small holes at the ends.
One of these ends will be mounted on an immobile hook, the other will have some kind of spring to maintain a little tension on the band.
These will be located at opposite ends of the printer beyond the normal travel of the carriage.
Some printers want these oriented in a particular way; front/back left/right but most don't care much how they are mounted.
Look for markings that might indicate a specific orientation.

If it has teeth, it ain't a band :-( it's the drive belt and the printer will have to come apart to replace it with one that doesn't have any 'ends.'
Don't know the specifics of your printer and the difficulty in replacing these varies widely, depending on the stupidity of the designers.

MY cartridge went haywire today


on the left side inside the chassi there is a small hole with a little metalpart sticking up (about 0.5cm high). On the piece where the inc cartrigde is there is a vertical hole you can see the hole easiest from the left side (about 1cm high). On the right side there should be a 2cm metallic part sticking up from the bottom.

You will probably have to bend one of the parts to get the plastic strip on place, just make sure that once you get it on place to bend them back so that the strip doesn't fall off again.

in my case the metallic parts where bent like: \ (left) and | (right) I had to bend them | and | to get the strip on place and then bend them \ and /. Not sure if the right part should be / or | though.

this strip feeds through the back of the carriage and tells the printer where the cariage is so it can tell how far along the page it is. it shuold be quite simple to hook it back on though many ayre spring loaded, if so this means a strip down of all exterior parts so that you can release the spring Hope this helps Cops
