Replacement of the encoder strip requires a fairly extensive disassembly of the printer. Before you even consider this repair you need to make sure that the encoder strip is not ripped at either end where it would be held in place by......if it is then you will need another encoder strip.

The "plastic strip" is the position encoder of the print head, it holds itself in place by two latches, one is fixed and the other is flexible, you have to put the encoder in the flexible latch first by holding it at an angle and then in the fixed one, probably you'll have to disassemble the MFP to have access and a better view of the parts.

Printer cuts off print at top of page in spite of over 1" margin and every 3rd or fourth line of print in document is very weak (not much ink)


Hello

Well are you using the external ink-system? even if you are not the disk encoder and the encoder strip needs to be cleaned. Encoder Strip is the plastic strip connecting from left to right inside the printer near the belt. In the same type of plastic there is an Disk encoder on the left side of the printer you can find it if you open the printer only.

For the paper jam you remove the back cover and clean the 4 rubber rollers with alcohol, you can rotate the rollers forward while you clean. For carriage jam you start by cleaning the encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage unit, the clear strip with black bars on it, you can wipe with a Q-tip damp with alcohol. If no help you may need to take apart and clean dried ink off of the service station on the right.

How does one replace the keyboard on a HP dv7 notebook?


No obvious screwws to locate, if similar to mine, you should look at the edges, like double glazing securing bars, there are click/push in place plastic strips, small pressure with a thin broad tool, applied beneath joint should release strip to expose small screws allowing you to lift keyboard, be carefull not to disturb other components or drop screws.

Sorry can't more helpful, just be careful.

Calibration strip location


I got my answer from a very helpful scanner expert from a posting on the newsgroup comp.periphs.scanners. The plastic piece went near the end of the bezel that holds the glass above the starting position for the scanning run. Once I knew the idea, locating where it went was easy because of small indentations in the bezel the shape and size of the plastic piece. Thanks.

G85 printer making horizontal strips


Check the scanner cable and the status of the LED's in the scanning head. Unluckily, you printer is disposable, to HP that problem will mean to discard the entire printer and replace it for a new one if it's still under warranty.
