I hope this helps. There is usually a spring that holds the encoder strip on either or both ends. The have a hole that the spring is inserted in. The hole brakes and the encoder strip comes off. If you have all the parts including the spring you can modify the encoder strip by cutting a piece of strong tape to fit over where the strip was broken. I use packing tape. Poke a hole in it and reinstall encoder strip. You should also be able to buy a new strip but I am not sure. I also would go to an electronic store and find a tool to help. Buy a spring hook. It is designed to help push on and pull off springs and they only should cost a couple bucks USA. I hope this helps, Bill

SOURCE: cannot install
I don't know what you mean that it is not available. I assume that you are simply trying to select an available printer on Windows?
You'll need to download and install the driver here. Just select your OS:
Please rate me :)

Unfortunately this appears to be a hardware failure and the printer is out of warranty. It is likely that the parts, repair and replacement fees would be more expensive than the actual cost of a new printer at this point.

First unplug your printer...
Lift your printer top, like you are going to change your ink cartridges.
Unplug your scanner & control panel by disconnecting the 3 ribbon cables
Then, you will need a screwdriver (philips head). remove the screws (about 4) from the inside housing cover.
After you have this cover off...
You should be able to see the sides of the cartridge. Take your encoder strip (gently) and thread it through the back of the cartriidges. Note: There are small slits on the side where you can thread.
If the encoder strip has come completely off (there should be tension if it is connected), you will have to located the right and left "pins" to attach it back to. I have a lexmark x-2500 so, mine are on the metal frame. The right end (arrow up) attaches to a metal strip which points straight towards you (a part of the metal frame) with a small notch at the right end and on the left end there's a type of "punchout" pin which is a part of the metal frame. I had to slightly bend the right end pin to the right, just enough to create some tension & keep the encoder strip from popping back off. The left end pin should already be bent out to the left.
Hopefully, this helps someone

The problem is you can't see the slot, as it's in back of the carrier. I took a dental mirror that has a built-in light on it and found the slot. Without that it's impossible to see, and you'll just have to follow the directions by feel.
