Canon pixma mx492 standard encoder


I have a canon pixma mx492 printer, A child took out a plastic strip with a spring on one side and on the other side it says standard encoder. I can not find anything on how to put the encoder back in place, only how to clean it. When I start the printer, the ink cartridge holder slams on the sides of the printer. Is there any way I can put it back? Thank you
