Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer
If the ribbon is still in good shape and there's no damage with it, you can re-fit it. The main problem is you must take apart the machine to reconnect it. If it's damaged or broken, you'll need another replacement which will be obtainable from HP retailer.
This ribbon regulates the movement and alignment of the cartridges, if it's loose or absent, the cartridges will move randomly and as if there's no control since the carriage will keep carrying instead of proper movement. Moreover, the printouts will come out as anything with whatever the print-heads could touch on the paper which means, zigzag or fuzzy or anything like that.
If you know how to take it apart, you can try, otherwise, I don't recommend "Do it Yourself", you may cause another damage instead of fixing.
Once it's opened apart, there's a hook like joints where one end will fit and the length will stretch toward the other end and fit it with the ring (circle).
I wish you good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.
