narrow plastic film with spring is out, need to put it back
I have a Pixma MG2540. A narrow plastic film (about 5mm in width) with 2 holes on either side and a spring on one side, came loose. how do i reattach it. i already opened up the printer.
That is the encoder strip. It goes through a U-shaped photo sensor at the back of the cartridge assembly. It might be hard to see with the cover on. It has to slide in between the 2 posts. Then you stretch it tight and where the 2 ends point, there should be a metal hook that you attach it to.
