SOURCE: 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! :)

Hi, sounds like the feed thingy at the rear is misaligned.

Open rear compartment door to reveal the thingy !!

Remove by releasing clips either side pull clear, while out just check there is no paper jam, locate back in making sure the thingy relocates with an obvious click on securing . Hope this solves problem.

My C7280 will no longer print black. Here is what


Same issue on my C7280 - just stripped it down and cleaned all the ink lines - forcing ink through the black line by manually actuating the pump and it appears to be working again but not sure for how long. Not something everyone would tackle as you need torx drivers and ability to take it apart which is tricky.

I have an HP C7280 All-in-one printer. I was


Well, I took the printer apart(as much as I could w/o removing any screws)and copied something onto card stock. I was looking for any extra business cards that I'd missed. The copying worked. I then unplugged everything and took the printer off of it's stand. I then noticed a piece of plastic from the feed in the back lying on the stand. I somehow managed to get it back on the printer where it belonged and voila! the printer worked! Don't know if the plastic piece was the culprit, but at least the printer works now.

Black vertical lines on faxes sent using auto document feeder


If you lift up the lid on your scanning device you will notice a glass strip about 1 inch thick and then the large area of glass used for flatbed scanning. The 1 inch strip is used for ADF scanning. Because your papper is moving across the glass strip, any dot, smudge or scratch will affect your scanning and cause verticial lines down the page. Sometimes the dot is not visible to the eye. Get some glass cleaner that has alcohol in it and thoroughly clean the glass strip and it should solve your problem. If it turns out to be a scratch on the glass then cleaning won't help.

One possibility is. look toward the back of the printer, there is a strip of clear plastic, about a quarter inch wide and clear. It runs the length of the print head area. That contains the stop strip. That strip or the sensor on the print head itself may be dirty and not sensing the strip, therefor not knowing when to stop.

Child damaged HP6110 - Help


It stretches from left to right behind the cartrige assembly and the assembly slides on it. It's a sensor strip for positioning the cart. asm. I'm not sure how it attaches, but you'd have to take the unit apart to do it.

Good luck...
