Open Question

The Ruhlatec encoder strip came off of my dell 926 all-in-one printer. The strip is still in perfect condition as no visible breaks can be found and the everything on the strip seems intact. How do i reattach this sencoder strip? The ink cartridges have no idea where to go without it. Thanks

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: Lexmark 6170 encoder strip reattach help needed

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

SOURCE: How to get the plastic strip back in my dell 926

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.

Error message clear carrier jam, when I opened the top of the Dell Photo 926 a long clear strip fell out, What do I do to fix this.


The long clear strip is the encoder strip that the cartridge carriage reads to know where it is in the printer. It should not have just fallen out. There should be a small hole at each end of the strip to attach it to points in the printer. If one of those holes is broken you might as well get a new printer. Paying someone to buy a new encoder strip and install it will most likely cost more than the machine itself.

Check if the Encoder Strip is Broken or Missing
1.Power down the printer and unplug the power.
2.Slide the cartridge carrier inside the printer a couple of inches to the left.
3.Locate the encoder strip (Figure 1) on the right-side of the cartridge carrier encoder strip
Note:
The encoder strip is a plastic strip with small markings over its entire length. The strip may appear to be translucent.

Reposition the Encoder Strip
1. Remove the power cord from the printer.
2. Lift the scanner unit to expose the inside, 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 (Figure 1) down and then back up, to get it back into the slot 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 scanner lid.
9. Re-connect the power cord to the printer.



Reseat the Dell Printer Power Adapter.
If your printer has a momentary loss of communication with your computer, it may be necessary to reset the printer to re-establish communication. You can reset a printer by unplugging the printer power cord from the electrical outlet and from the back of the printer for 10 seconds then reattaching the cord at both ends.

Check with manufacturer if printer is still covered under warranty...
If yes then get it replaced.....or else get a new printer

  2. Lift the scanner unit to expose the inside, 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.

What do you call the encoding strip? Do you means the contact strip on the back of the cartridge? If so buy a new cartridge. If you mean part of the printer-did you put it back correctly- if still in trouble-take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com. If no luck there try the Dell Tech support team If still out of luck Buy a new printer-
