Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The encoder strip was damaged when a paper jam occurred. I have located a replacement strip on-line, but cannot find any directions on how to install it.
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.

Honestly the most likely reason that you are not able to find this part very easily and no directions on how to install it is due to the fact that it really isn't a user replaceable part. It may or may not work once you install it because the printer was not really designed to have certain parts replaced.
I would call hp and see if they have any upgrade units available - usually refurbished but they come with a 1 yr warranty and are significantly cheaper than buying a new unit from the store. They will also take your unit and pay to have it returned to go to an environmental recycling facility.
