Question about Lexmark X4650 InkJet Printer
The plastic strip fell off from behind the carrier in my x4650, and I took the printer apart to fix it. Now another clear plastic piece fell off the right side of the printer (electronic side) from inside the grey end cover and I can't figure out where it goes nor can I find a simple parts manual. The piece is S shaped with a white beveled tip at one end and a notched tab at the other.

THis solution I copied from another post. It worked for me as well
First you need to open the printer. Unplug from power. Then lift the scanning device, you can partially remove it when pushing the "hooks" close to where the lid is connected (careful with the cable connections). Then remove three screws in the cover of the bottom part and with some fiddling around you can remove the cover. Again be careful with the cable connections. Of course don't do it if you are worried about warranty or breaking the printer.
The plastic strip has slits at each side to attach to the inside back of printer, on the left side is a down ward facing arrow, the plastic strip feeds through the back middle of the cartridge carrier and then the slits are to be inserted to the metal tab like pieces on the back sides inside the printer on the right side (facing printer) it will look like a small rectangular hole with a longer metal tab like piece sticking out & on the left is a smaller squared like hole with a flat smaller metal like tab which will line up if the plastic strip is feed through the back of the cartridge carrier properly. This should allow the cartridge carrier to glide properly & work as it should, with no more banging.

Not that difficult check if behind the carriage(part holding cartridges) has broken off.Its a small plastic latch about 3 inches in length.
If not then try moving the carriage manually with your hand and see if it moves if it doesn't press and hold the power button and while holding the buttons unplug and re-plug the power cable to the printer .Clean the carriage rod with alcohol on a cotton swab/lint free cloth and then see if the problem surfaces if it does then its time to get a new printer

The "plastic strip" could be the encoder strip (responsible for the movement of the cartridge carrier on the assembly). This article will give you an idea on how to re-seat the encoder strip on your printer: Printer Cartridge Stalls or Is Blocked.
