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

There is a spot where the strip goes through and it MUST be in this slot. It might be just a slot or it could be a hole it goes through. On all inkjets the strip will ALWAYS be straight and not pushed either frontward or backward, if it is, its not where is should be.

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

This is a "carriage timing belt" or in tech term's an "encoder strip". It reads the cartridge carriage when it moves left to right for positioning. Is either of the ends split or broken? If so, you are out of luck trying to reinstall it. I would recommend replacing your printer since this isn't a very expensive one. Just find a electronic waste disposal facility (or local E-waster drive at your nearest school, etc) or check with your city or state and find out where you can drop it off. Good luck.
