I presume you are talking about the print head parking mechanism. The front spring is usually the one to come off. If you look at the parking mechanism you will see an L-shaped piece of plastic on the front of the parking mechanism. At its far right-hand end there is a knob.This is where one end of the spring attaches. The other end is deep inside the parking mechanism, but the knobby little bit at the bottom shows you where the spring attaches.Make a little hook tool from a large paper clip. Fasten the spring on the lower knob, then get hold of the top end of the spring with your paper clip tool and pull it onto the top knob. That's it - the printer should now work

If this information is not what you want, please respond and I will send you more detailed information.

Refer to brake pad arm assembly :I don't understand what keeps the brake pads from always riding on the idler pulleys. the springs keep them against the pulleys.


Hi, the spring on the brake rod pulls the lever forward when the brake is applied and a short lighter gauge spring pulls the lever back. This spring may be missing. Regards Phil.

I took my Hitachi NR83A apart to remove a jambed nail, and can not figure out how it goes back togeather. Where does the tension apparatice go inrelation to the shaft and slide handle? Thanks Vince


You do not need any special tools to assemble the pusher into the rails, however there is a trick to getting the spring in the proper position. I use a small pair of vice grips and a paper clip to hold the spring in position. The pusher slides into the rails easily. The back part of the pusher slides into the rails first. On the back part of the pusher there is a groove that accepts the spring, spring spool and pin. The pin will be in a vertical position and the spring will have the end tab with hole towards you. As you push this assembly into the rails you will loose sight of the spring end tab. You must hold the spring end tab at the bolt hole while you push in the assembly. This is done by bending the paperclip straight with very small hook on one end. Hook paperclip on spring tab hole and hold paperclip with vicegrip to position spring tab hole at bolt hole and push assembly all the way into rails untill it locks at rear or rails. This procedure can be varried with goal of holding spring tab at bolt hole. While holding tab in position insert rails into nose of gun and bolt rails. Just leave paper clip hook end there or pull out it does not matter. You are done. Good luck

Lexmark Printer X4270 not geting started.


1200 error was caused by a cartridge landing pad jam (Spring has come off under the ink cartridges). When the ink cartridges are parked, a landing pad moves from left to right and comes up to cover the jets to prevent ink from drying out. It locks in place and there is a spring which allows the pad to unlock and move out of the way - my spring kept coming off the post. Symptom is you can't change the ink cartridge when you open the access cover because they don't slide over.
To fix it,(complexity is 6 of 10), UNPLUG PRINTER, remove the handset (unplug cord) and rest (unslide cover underneath and pull out electrical connection, remove one screw), then remove 8 screws (2 in back 6 on top) from top cover, and remove same. Look for the spring if it's jumped. It belongs underneath the landing pad on a plastic post surrounded by a C guard. Gently move the ink shuttle to the left by turning the motor that drives the belt. When the landing pad is to the left most travel, it should be down out of the way of the cartrige movement. I had to remove the shuttle guide shaft to move the ink shuttle left but if you can coax the pad down this may not be necessary. I put the spring on and heated a flat blade screwdriver and pushed gently on the post to melt/mushroom it. The other end of the spring goes on a hook on the bottom of a pivoting catch (top of the catch looks like 1/2 an arrow and should point to the right, with the pivot shaft in the hole in the landing pad). Once reattached and with internals in operating order, with the cover off you can plug in the printer and test to see if it works, but of course be cautious of exposed electricals in the back. If successful, replace cover and handset post in reverse of removal. Good luck!

I have a Kenmore dryer from 1979 and when I open the door it just falls down. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


Check the door springs. One or both may be broken. Remove bottom panel and look to the right or left sides for the springs. If broken, just replace the same. One end of the spring hooks into the door hinge assembly and the other end hooks into the base of the frame. You should be able to see a hole in the frame to hook the spring as you will also see a hole in the hinge assembly. Easy fix. Just have to know where to look.

Need repair guide for rear brakes 1990 E350 Ford


Ford Full-Size Vans 1989-1996 Repair Guide
Brake Shoes - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Light Duty Systems
  1. Raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheel and brake drum from the wheel to be worked on.
If you have never replaced the brakes on a van before and you are not too familiar with the procedures involved, only dissemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference during reassembly.
  1. Install a clamp over the ends of the wheel cylinder to prevent the pistons of the wheel cylinder from coming out, causing loss of fluid and much grief.
  2. Contract the brake shoes by pulling the self-adjusting lever away from the starwheel adjustment screw and turn the starwheel up and back until the pivot nut is drawn onto the starwheel as far as it will come.
  3. Pull the adjusting lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down and toward the rear to unhook the pivot hook from the large hole in the secondary shoe web. Do not attempt to pry the pivot hook from the hole.
  4. Remove the automatic adjuster spring and the adjusting lever.
  5. Remove the secondary shoe-to-anchor spring with a brake tool. (Brake tools are very common implements and are available at auto parts stores). Remove the primary shoe-to-anchor spring and unhook the cable anchor. Remove the anchor pin plate.
  1. Remove the cable guide from the secondary shoe.
  2. Remove the shoe hold-down springs, shoes, adjusting screw, pivot nut, and socket. Note the color of each hold-down spring for assembly. To remove the hold-down springs, reach behind the brake backing plate and place one finger on the end of one of the brake hold-down spring mounting pins. Using a pair of pliers, grasp the washer type retainer on top of the hold-down spring that corresponds to the pin which you are holding. Push down on the pliers and turn them 90° to align the slot in the washer with the head on the spring mounting pin. Remove the spring and washer retainer and repeat this operation on the hold down spring on the other shoe.
  3. Remove the parking brake link and spring. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake lever.
  4. After removing the rear brake secondary shoe, disassemble the parking brake lever from the shoe by removing the retaining clip and spring washer.
To install:
  1. Assemble the parking brake lever to the secondary shoe and secure it with the spring washer and retaining clip.
  2. Apply a light coating of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, at the points where the brake shoes contact the backing plate.
  3. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, and install the hold-down spring pins, springs, and spring washer type retainers. On the rear brake, install the parking brake link, spring and washer. Connect the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever.
  4. Install the anchor pin plate, and place the cable anchor over the anchor pin with the crimped side toward the backing plate.
  5. Install the primary shoe-to-anchor spring with the brake tool.
  1. Install the cable guide on the secondary shoe web with the flanged holes fitted into the hole in the secondary shoe web. Thread the cable around the cable guide groove.
  2. Install the secondary shoe-to-anchor (long) spring. Be sure that the cable end is not cocked or binding on the anchor pin when installed. All of the parts should be flat on the anchor pin. Remove the wheel cylinder piston clamp.
  3. Apply Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the threads and the socket end of the adjusting starwheel screw. Turn the adjusting screw into the adjusting pivot nut to the limit of the threads and then back off 1 / 2 turn.
Interchanging the brake shoe adjusting screw assemblies from one side of the vehicle to the other would cause the brake shoes to retract rather than expand each time the automatic adjusting mechanism is operated. To prevent this, the socket end of the adjusting screw is stamped with an "R" or an "L" for "RIGHT" or "LEFT". The adjusting pivot nuts can be distinguished by the number of lines machined around the body of the nut; one line indicates left-hand nut and two lines indicate a right-hand nut.
  1. Place the adjusting socket on the screw and install this assembly between the shoe ends with the adjusting screw nearest to the secondary shoe.
  2. Place the cable hook into the hole in the adjusting lever from the backing plate side. The adjusting levers are stamped with an R (right) or a L (left) to indicate their installation on the right or left-hand brake assembly.
  3. Position the hooked end of the adjuster spring in the primary shoe web and connect the loop end of the spring to the adjuster lever hole.
  4. Pull the adjuster lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down toward the rear to engage the pivot hook in the large hole in the secondary shoe web.
  5. After installation, check the action of the adjuster by pulling the section of the cable guide and the adjusting lever toward the secondary shoe web far enough to lift the lever past a tooth on the adjusting screw starwheel. The lever should snap into position behind the next tooth, and release of the cable should cause the adjuster spring to return the lever to its original position. This return action of the lever will turn the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth. The lever should contact the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth above the centerline of the adjusting screw.
If the automatic adjusting mechanism does not perform properly, check the following:
  1. Check the cable and fittings. The cable ends should fill or extend slightly beyond the crimped section of the fittings. If this is not the case, replace the cable.
  2. Check the cable guide for damage. The cable groove should be parallel to the shoe web, and the body of the guide should lie flat against the web. Replace the cable guide if this is not so.
  3. Check the pivot hook on the lever. The hook surfaces should be square with the body on the lever for proper pivoting. Repair or replace the hook as necessary.
  4. Make sure that the adjusting screw starwheel is properly seated in the notch in the shoe web.

Heavy Duty Systems
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and drum.
  1. Remove the parking brake lever assembly retaining nut from behind the backing plate and remove the parking brake lever assembly.
  2. Remove the adjusting cable assembly from the anchor pin, cable guide and adjusting lever.
  3. Remove the brake shoe retracting springs.
  4. Remove the brake shoe hold-down spring from each shoe.
  5. Remove the brake shoes and adjusting screw assembly.
  6. Disassemble the adjusting screw assembly.
  7. Clean the ledge pads on the backing plate. Apply a light coat of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the ledge pads (where the brake shoes rub the backing plate).

Dishwasher ''soft drop door'' mechanism came apart - door now drops


I had a similar issue as described by mc1bean. One day my Jenair dishwasher door just fell down. The right side spring was fine. The left side spring was still hooked into the door hinge but the cable was laying on the floor in 2 pieces. Over time it wore down and broke. I ordered just the soft drop cable. Now I could not find any installation instructions how to install the soft drop cable. After a few tries I think I got it right. Here are the instructions for hooking up the right side spring with the cable. The spring has to be hooked into the door hinge at the notch closer to the door. The end of the cable with the hook has to be hooked into the other side of the spring. The cable should lead from the bottom around the pulley up to the door hinge again. Now the other end of the cable has to be hung into the door hinge on the notch further away from the door. There is some slack, but it is not quite enough for the cable to get over the pulley when in rest position and undo itself.
I hope this helps others who have the same issue.

Toner end life message


i solved the brother mfc8860 toner life end problem
hi guys my name is reedwaan. Im new at this site so please listen up 
my brother toner i refilled with toner and inserted it. It said toner life end then i patched the windows close on the sides and still the same problem, then i removed the toner and loosened the two screws on the left by the gears then removed the cover of the gears. 
Right at the back there is a funny looking gear with a spring behind it. All you have to do is pull the spring a little bit clockwise and push the gear back on hooking the spring into it so that the gear is spring loaded. close it up then test it, It took me a while to figure it out but i got it right. 
NB*  The gear that you push on, is the toner reset gear and when you push it on make sure the teeth dont interlock with the second gear on the left of it. If you have any queries mail me on reedwaan@yahoo.com 
glad to help out
