Question about Printers & Copiers
Sounds like the Encoder Strip, but without the Brand Printer and model number, I cant be 100% sure.
If it is the encoder strip, this is what the printer uses to tell where the carrriage is located at. Without it, the printer won't work.
You can try to repair but it will take a little time. 1st make sure that the encoder strip isn't torn at either ends where the spring goes in.
The encoder strip goes from 1 end to the other end, and it also goes through a small opening in the back of the carriage unit.
If you have a make and model, I could be a little more specific.
