Doesn't sound like something you could repair. The repair is probably too costly. Try contacting an authorized Epson repair depot.

How did you break the ribbon? If you use the proper method to change ink the cartridge should move to the center.

That sounds like the data ribbon. If you didn't do anything it MIGHT plug into the print head carriage.

There is also a belt to move the carriage side to side. Usually black rubber, like belts on a car.

Is that what you mean? Below is a link to a Canon inkjet that shows both the data ribbon cable on the left of the print head, and the carriage belt to the right (narrower Orange color).

That appears to be the belt that moves the carriage. You could contact Epson authorized repair to see if it is worth fixing.

Was everything working before you changed the ink?
