SOURCE: Lexmark 5150 All in One Printer - Encoder Strip

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: encoder strip

It is not possible for you to hook the encoder strip back to print, its kind of a Hooks on both ends which is holding it, even if you are able to put it back, it will not work,

I would refer you to a local computer tech, however I'll suggest you to get a new printer, coz tech might charge lot more than what the price of new printer

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: 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.

THE PRINTER CARRIAGE GOES TO THE RIGHT AND WILL NOT RESET, THE YELLOW LIGHTS COMES ON, AND THE ERROR MESSAGE SAYS PRINTER CARTAGE IS STUCK.


It may be that the encoding sensor or encoding strip may be dirty or damaged. The encoding strip is the striped plastic strip found just behing the print carriage, The encoding sensor is located on the carriage and reads these stripes to establish where the caridge is. Try wiping the encoding strip with a damp clotch, be carefull not to use chemicals or too much preasure as this will damaged the strip.

Encoder strip for HP 2175 xi


Here's the solution for fixing a carriage jam on your PSC 2315xi printer. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00042632&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=90812 But, you said the encoder strip came off. I always understood that if the encoder strip came off, the printer was dead. I've never tried to take the encoder strip off and put it back on again to see what happens. The encoder strip is what tells the carriage where it is. Without the encoder strip, the carriage doesn't know where to go.

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.
