Orange toothed band come out of slot at back of ink tray

Hi all. this is my post. My R265 has been more or less faultless for a year but had a major prob arose yesterday. The cartridge tray moves on runners and an orange toothed band. Now for sum reason the tray jammed and the orange band managed to come out of its slot on the back of the cartridge tray. Is there anyway of getting it back in as there's not much room to see or get my fingers in. Any idaes for me to fix myself or is it a shop job?

Cheers in advance

    Scrap that post. It's been binned as the band has actually snapped and taken a wheel with it. I've borrowed my bosses R265 for a bit.

Check status monitor if empty or low:
Replace if empty ect:

Soak the cartridge nozzles upright in Flush Solution for 6 hours dry and retry , make up a A4 Paper colour printing page with each colour band about 1" high x 8" wide and print out 4 - 6 pages checking which colour band is poor:

Keep printing if improvement noticed:
if not
Resoak the offending cartridges and repeat:
also can
Use cleaning cartridge on offending colour slot/s then retry:

Dont use the head cleaning utility to much as it is programmed to disable your printer after a pre-set number of cleans and will have to be serviced:
