    Service Manual.

    Are you having the 0.0 or pinch roller error?

    Hi

    Enter in the cleaning menu. Cleaning Button + Power on. The printing carriage will move in to the right side. After that, you will unplug the printer. Simple.
    If you move fast, maximum 20 minutes(you don't need too much time to flip the encoder strip), it will be just fine. Is no danger for the print-heads to dry up.

    When the printer is shut down(Power OFF), press Cleaning Button + Enter Button in the same time. The printer will tell you what to do and you will gain access to that screw. After the print-head is in the right side of the printer, just unplug it. You will have all the time you want. 20 minutes are enough to do the move.
    Good luck!

    Hi

    No, I think this will be just fine until the new encoder strip will come. How much have you paid for it?
