SOURCE: Detacted drive strip

that sounds like the indexing strip for the print head.

It may be accesible when you open the printer to replace ink carts. there will be a pin or hook on either side of the printer and you should see a slot under the print head that the strip passes thru.

the L on the strip is for LEFT this end goes to left side and there is usually a spring to keep it under tension on one end

IF this strip is damaged the print head will not move correctly and therefore not print correctly

11. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer

13. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

Encoder strip has come out


Look inside, there should be a spring on the left and a hook on the right. The arrow points up on the left side and you have to feed it thru a rectangular hole at the back of the carriage assembly and then the left spring and right hook.

Clear jamming


The noise means that the encoder strip is missing or covered with ink. It is a clear mylar strip with black bars on it. It connects to a spring on the left, runs behind the carriage thru a slot and to a hook on the right side.

Long 20 inch plastic was taken out of a HP 1220 C Printer.


This plastic strip is probably the so called "encoder strip", it has many fine black lines that the carriage sensor counts to find out where the carriage is located on the paper.

This encoder strip is attached directly to the printer's frame on the right, and to a leaf spring on the left side. It also runs through a slot on the back side of the carriage.

It can be treaded back and reattached if you're nimble-fingered, but in many cases it's broken and needs to be replaced. As far as I remember HP doesn't sell these parts separately (correct me if I'm wrong!) so if it's broken the printer most probably has to be turned in for service.

But if the encoder strip is intact, there's no right or left side - or up/down - of it, so it can be attached any way you want - as long as you get it back properly. Usually it's best to first hook it up on the leaf spring, then attach it on to the small hook on the right side. Being able to slide the carriage back and forth eases the operation. You can get it back without disassembling the printer; it's fiddly but it's possible.

Good luck! :)

Mechanism, belt came off.


Turn your machine upside down and give it a shake. Most likely, a small spring will fell out. The same thing happened to us and sure enough, it was the spring. This spring will give the tension you need to hold the belt on the plastic piece.

Cartridge slams


One end of the strip has an arrow and says "D-11". That is the left end of the strip. That is where the spring goes.

You begin by hanging the OTHER end of the strip first.
http://i34.tinypic.com/nlv7fc.jpg
It fits over a tab on the right hand endplate. If you look at the printer carriage, the back looks like an upraised hand holding something.

The strip threads thru the 'thumb' from right to left.
http://i36.tinypic.com/dqnqyx.jpg
The arrow should face down, which will make the "11" face upside down but the D will still look like a D.

On the left is where the spring goes. Here, there is a second tab which only locates the slot for the left side. It doesn't actually fasten the strip, it just passes thru the post. At first this confused me.

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.

Some plastic stick came out of my dell 924 all in one printer


The plastic strip prevents your ink cartridges from clanking from side to side. All you need to do is open up the prineter and hook one side of the strip to a metal hook (lip) on the left side. Than put the strip through the back side of the ink cartridges. Lastly, hook the right side of the strip to a hook spring located on the right side of the printer. Note: the spring should not be attached to the metal lip that is to the left of it. Good luck!
