Question about Lexmark X5495 Printer
A thin plastic strip seems to have out fallen; its the length of the printer and small holes on each end.the cartridges keep bangin when it is turned on/off
It CAN easily be fixed, probably. Just re-thread it through the hole in the sensor on the print head (may be hard to find). Then one end goes onto a fixed rectangular hook, the other end is held in place by a tiny spring. If you have lost the spring then you have a problem.

If it's the transparent strip that fell off from the assembly, it's called the encoder strip. It is, somewhat, related to sending information to the carrier's movement on the carrier shaft or the silver rod accross the printer. I'm afraid that can't easily be fixed. But, it would be better to contact Lexmark for assistance. They may be able to help you with that. Hope I can help more on this.
