Hi.

The thin strip of film is probably the encoder strip. This is the sensor that the machine uses to detect the position of the ink carriage.

Replacing the encoder strip is not a difficult job.See the links below.

Can I disassemble an hp office jet e609n printer, to clean the inside


Wisdom says no. If you want to clean the paper path easily go to an office supply store and get printer cleaning paper. It is sticky on both sides and will remove paper dust from the pick up roller and all the other rollers inside. It will also clean any leftover bits of paper from jams. Any internal dust buildup will be cleaned too.

I have a 7300/7400 HP Office Jet printer....keeps giving false alarms on paper jam. I have done everything the book says. The print cartridges do not return to the right. I love this printer and


there are a few sensors in the paper circuit. if those sensors have some small pieces of paper you will continue to get this error. If you have serious mechanical skills you can try to disassemble the printer and clean every sensor. if not you should go to a specialized service center.

HP 7310 Cartrige Belt Repair


The right end is connected with an idle pulley on a spring. If you grab the left end and pull it to the left, the spring will strech. This will help to attach the belt to the carriage motor on the left.
In some printers the spring streching is fixed by screw that have to be loosen first.
If you can't reach the motor's weel on the left, you have to take off some parts first.

Where is the carrriage located on my hp 7310 officejet printer?


The carriage is the unit that holds your ink cartridges, usually parked on the right side. When you have carriage stall or carriage jam you usually need to clean the clear plastic strip that runs across behind the carriage assembly, and make sure there are no scraps stopping the travel of the carriage.

My 7310 indicates a carriage jam. I've cleared all paper and verified no loose paper, dust etc is present and it still reads carriage jam. What should I do?


Inside your printer the ink cartridges ride in the carriage. If you look closely, there is a plastic strip just behind the carriage with closely spaced little lines on it. If the strip gets dirty with dust or ink, you may get that error. Gently clean the entire strip with a rag moistened with water. be sure the entire strip is clean. Move the carriage back and forth to get at all of it. Then see if that doesn't work.

Have a HP officejet 7310 with error message that reads "carriage jam" this occured after clearing a paper jam???


You have to make sure you have gotten all the scraps out, and if you put fingerprints on the clear strip behind the carriage, you will need to clean them off with a Q-tip.

Cartridge jam


can you move the move the ink cartridges from side to side with your hand, either the head cleaning mech has jammed or the carriage has come off the drive belt, either way, its a repair to be done in the workshop, if its even worth repairing

Adhesive jam


Some adhesive still on the transfer or fuser. Try a cleaning page, or some manual cleaning with dry towel-paper if adhesive signs are visible on transfer. Do not try fusing unit because very delicate silicone film inside.
If stain are of a single color, (p.es. magenta) you must change this cartridge.
