There is a loose ribbed black/brown thin band inside the printer where the cartridges are changed-where does it belong please

Sounds like the carriage belt, it goes around a motor pulley on the far right side, and around a spring loaded idler pulley on the far left. It should also be connected to the carriage assembly to move the carriage back and forth.

The belt has come off the dryer drum. I dont know how the tensioner goes back on

stick the belt pulley in the holes closest to the motor. if you have a belt pulley like this. get the belt and hold it together so you have a loop at the end and run under the pulley so the pulley lifts up and put the belt on the motor shaft. the belt always goes under the pulley so you are lifting upwards

The ribbed belt came off on one end how do i get it back on? canon mp 210

Typically, one end of the carriage belt is stationary relative to the chassis and the other has some kind of spring mounting for  the idler so the slight natural stretching of the belt is compensated for.
You may have to remove the housing to access both drive gear and idler. This may be a teeth-gritting job since housings are often snapped together and are a little tough to remove.   If you do, check for the plastic band that the unit uses to determine position of the carriage and with a soft cloth or paper towel moistened with some window cleaner, pince the band gently and clean the length of it. These tend to get soiled with time and the unit needs it clean to find its position.
Don't be surprised if the carriage slams against one or the other end when first turned back on. If it is positioned in its normal park area, this shouldn't be a problem.

The MP210 does not support Win98, and Win2000 driver doesn't work with Win98... so it's impossible to use this printer with an OS older than Win2000.
