    What a damaged encoder strip looks like from a Designjet

    For those who haven't had this issue I thought I would share this, since I almost overlooked it myself. The damage to this encoder strip was so minor I almost didn't see it. Yet it was enough to cause paper jam messages on a HP Designjet 4500 (86.01 error.)

    Thanks Kiran! Such minor damage such as that is easily overlooked. Even smudges/finger oils can confuse a unit that uses encoder strips to detect location. I recently had a run-in with one of those DVD burner autoloaders that prints directly onto the disc once it's burnt. Looked at the encoder strip without a flashlight, you would think everything is fine. Once you get a light on the strip though, you can instantly see issues. Fingerprints and ink spray. Little piece of water dampened cloth and it started working great again!
