SOURCE: hp psc 2410 problem

you can order all components of an HP product from HP's website or through phone.This is the best way to solve your problem. Your question is not complete...though I would suggest you to visit HP's support web page ad all information is available on error codes. This could do more than my advise.

SOURCE: encoder strip part c8941-80005

an encoder strip is seriously easy to replace! the strip rides thru a sensor on the ink cartridge carriage. one end hooks on to a small "hook"" on the left side of the plotter. the other end connects to a small "hook" on the encoder strip spring which connects to the right side of the plotter. Most manufacturers consider anything inside the case to be "not user replaceable". but really, its harder to keep the pictbridge bezel (cover) from falling out than it is to replace the encoder strip.
in response to jktyler.. my 2 year old did the same. if the small slots on the ends of the encoder strip are broken, then the strip is definitely damaged.

SOURCE: I displaced the encoder strip on an hp Photosmart

Typically, HPs have one fixed hook for the hole at the end and for the other end, a spring steel piece with a hook. Take a good look at the carriage; it will have a vertical slot, located toward the innermost part of it through which he strip needs to pass. Either take the strip (clean it gently while it's out), push it through the carriage while it is centered and look along its possible path for the hook arrangements. I don't know your particular printer but some of them require removal of the case to access those points. If you have a longish tweezer, you may be able to fish it into place (using a flashlight) anyhow. Be sure to fasten the spring-end first since the fixed end will not give and you risk tearing the mounting hole otherwise.

SOURCE: HP 2500CM displays mech carriage jam 415 msg after

Is the carriage rail clean, and lightly lubricated?

Cheat the door switch and observe the carriage moving at boot up.

(Keep your fingers out of the way!)

See if you can spot where it sticks.
Sometimes the printhead capping unit / service station seizes up, and the carriage cannot leave / return to the home position.

This model was not one of their best.... Good luck

HP 7310 Encoder Strip Replacement


That model has easy covers on the side to remove, 1 screw in the front of each and one in the rear. With side covers off you can see the slot to pass the encoder thru and connect the left side to the spring and the right side to the hook on the frame.

Printer problem


its a problem of the encoder strip . either the encoder strip is loosened or damaged.the carriage sensor reads the plastic encoder strip while it moves.if the sensor is not able to detect the encoder ,such a problem arises.u can check the position of the encoder and take the necessary step accordingly.if the encodder is damaged replace it.

good luck.
thanks.

The "plastic strip" is the position encoder of the print head, it holds itself in place by two latches, one is fixed and the other is flexible, you have to put the encoder in the flexible latch first by holding it at an angle and then in the fixed one, probably you'll have to disassemble the MFP to have access and a better view of the parts.

Strip encoder 7410 hp all in one printer


Not sure about the smoking thing...to replace the encoder strip will require fairly extensive disassembly. There are no repair manuals available for any of HP's Inkjet machines because all repairs or replacements are depot repairs (u send them in). We service all of their machines. We have an extensive used part inventory where we are able to fix most all of their inkjet line. If you were to bring this machine in to our shop, the repair would cost you $65 if its only replacing the encoder strip.

PROBLEM WITH 2175 HP ALL IN ONE


Sounds like your encoder strip is out of alignment. The encoder strip is a thin clear plastic strip that runs along the back side of the print head. It feeds information to the print head during the print process. If it it out of alignment or is missing, the printer will make a violent clunking noise during startup and will fail its self test. If it is out of alignment and still mounted, push back on it with your thumbs, then push down gently. Finally, pull it toward you with your index fingers and up into the groove behind the print heads. If the encoder strip is unmounted or totally removed from the printer, check it for damage. If there is so much as a bend or kink in it, it will have to be replaced. New strips can be purchased from HP for around $60. You will have to determine whether it is cost effective to replace the strip or replace the printer. Now if it is undamaged, you can remount it. There is a hook on each side of the print track where the strip hooks into. Be careful because the strip will not hook in easily because once you get one side hooked in, it is difficult to keep it hooked in while you connect the other side. Once you get both sides hooked in, align it as stated above. Hope this helps. Good luck.
