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

Print unable 30 error

The print unable is an error caused by build up of dust on the encoder strip. Unfortunately there is no easy way to reach the encoder strip to clean it without taking the machine apart and putting the machine back together after you take it apart is not easy.
Paying to repair the unit is a little over priced and not usually worth it. On the bright side, Brother's new line up of ink jet machines allows easy access to the encoder strip to clean it without hassle.

Have a Roland SP 540 V Eco Sol MAx printer/cutter. Magenta/Yellow print head clogged (hadn't been used in a few weeks) can't seem to get the ink to flow in those heads! Any idea other than head...

you should have to use the syringe method to **** the ink before anything, then make a powerful cleaning, test, you may have to do it several cleanings and should be solved.

I have a Roland Versacamm and as it's printing an image that is supposed to be a rectangle shape 40"x60" it prints out the image is not straight it actually looks wavey like a flag? The printer was OK...

this sounds like a scan motor error. clean encoding strip and test. If still wavy remove scan sensor the one that reads the encoder strip, clean with alcohol, replace and test. if still bad replace encoder strip and the eye that reads it.

Error 0502

Re-position the Encoder Strip on your all in one Printer To re-position the encoder strip, perform the following steps: 1. Remove the power cord from the unit. 2. Lift the lid of the unit, just below the scanner portion of the All-In-One, to expose the inside of the unit where the printer cartridges are located. 3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer. 4. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right. 5. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier. NOTE NOTE: There is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into, which is going to be located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier. 6. Gently press the strip first to the rear and then forward to ensure that it is seated correctly. 7. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right to check the positioning of the encoder strip. 8. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the lid to the unit. 9. Re-connect the power supply to the All-In-One. 10. Press the Power button. If the encoder strip was re-seated correctly, the Hardware Error: 502 code will not appear. See attached pictures, one for an out or place encoder strip, the other for a well placed strip. Other faults that can bring up this error is a carriage rail that needs cleaning and oiling (so you might want to do that while your inside the thing), and also obstructions to the paper ways. Try removing paper jams, and put the printer upside down to shake loose anything that might jam the mechanism. Good luck!
