Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer
Does it look like a strip of clear plastic with very fine vertical lines?
Or, does it have teeth molded into it?
The former is used to determine the position of the carriage and is normally mounted through a narrow slot in the carriage and should have small holes at the ends.
One of these ends will be mounted on an immobile hook, the other will have some kind of spring to maintain a little tension on the band.
These will be located at opposite ends of the printer beyond the normal travel of the carriage.
Some printers want these oriented in a particular way; front/back left/right but most don't care much how they are mounted.
Look for markings that might indicate a specific orientation.
If it has teeth, it ain't a band :-( it's the drive belt and the printer will have to come apart to replace it with one that doesn't have any 'ends.'
Don't know the specifics of your printer and the difficulty in replacing these varies widely, depending on the stupidity of the designers.
