HELP! Disconnected part and don't know where it is supposed to go. Canon Pixma Pro-100

I was having the power light (white) and the resume light (orange) blinking continually in tandem, followed by a clanking sound. I opened the front compartment where the ink is and slid the cartridge box all the way to the right and found that my son had placed a paper towel in there and also pulled this out of place. Is this something I can put back myself or should I bring the printer somewhere to have this placed back into place? The printer is still blinking the same way and it is definitely not working. HELP! This is the link to the model I have. https://www.amazon.com/Canon-Wireless-Professional-Airprint-6228B002/dp/B0095F5BCS/ref=asc_df_B0095F...

Greetings,

That looks like an encoder timing strip.

Greetings,

If thats the timing strip its not a user replaceable part.  Thats not to say it can't be done, but there aren't instructions to do it.

 

Also not sure if its damaged or not.

 

This is the KB article to clean it:

 

Canon Knowledge Base - Cleaning the encoder (timing) strip - (PRO-10 / PRO-100)

 

If yours has been pulled out, deformed or stretched, it may not go back in correctly.
