1.1 Switch off the printer and disconnect the powersupply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands ormetal tools inside the chassis.
2.Step 2 Pin down the exact location of the jam. Thethree hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed trayand the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
3.Step 3 Take off the front paper tray if the sheet gotstuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammedhere, you should be able to see most of the paper.
4.Step 4 Pull on the sheet with both hands and steadypressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeperin the machine.
5.Step 5 Open the back panel to reach paper jammedbetween the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer.Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
6.Step 6 Use the carriage access door to reach a jamfurther inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriageout of your way to clear the jam.
7.Step 7 Return any access panels to their closed andlocked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

But, you said the encoder strip came off. I always understood that if the encoder strip came off, the printer was dead. I've never tried to take the encoder strip off and put it back on again to see what happens. The encoder strip is what tells the carriage where it is. Without the encoder strip, the carriage doesn't know where to go.
Take out the cart. all the way check if there is any broken plastic then put it back in resetting the printer, check for obstruction of the print head make sure its free of drebris or dust useing a can of compressed air, thanks for using Fixya
