Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter

IBM Wheelwriter 3 not striking ribbon onto page

I have a IBM wheelwriter that I have had for years without any problems. Recently while typing, the typewriter stopped printing on the page. The "tapper bar"is not striking the imprint onto the page, even though the typewriter keys keys are working. Is there something I can do/order to get typewriter working again?

    This just happened to me. I was typing along fine and then it just stopped striking. Where could the plastic cap have gone? I don't see any broken pieces anywhere. How do I purchase one of these and install it?

There is a plastic cap on the print solenoid plunger that is probably broken, they are available but a little tricky to install.

I want to show a 6% sales increase from last year to this year. How do i figure it?


take you sales for the last year and put it into a calculator, then press plus + and then 6 and then the per cent key %

Or

Take your sales from last year, multiply by 6 and then divide by 100. That is the amount you will increase. Add it to last years sales.

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

HP Photosmart C5180 will not read new ink cartridge


Excuse me--but I would like hp to have a look at this series and come out with a statement.

I did call someone in computer repair i think he said they cannot fix it (I don't remember that part)--but (this I do recall) that it probably needed a sensor to be replaced.

I have another bone to pick with hp--revealing: I did use the quick set up format and did not watch any dvd s on it if they gave them--

one thing I've guessed from all of this--there are several colors that get used up awfully fast, and yellow is one of them--even when we have our default set for black. double check yourselves: I believe that their nice black is created with yellow and other colors as well as the black cartridge.

Since I cannot say whether this was revealed in any of the handouts or an instructional video, if there was one--I don't know that they didn't tell this outright.

To be truly user friendly--I don't think that sort of information should be so buried that a casual user wouldn't know that.

(Sure it makes what they more impressive if you don't know how they do it, but I'd like to think they want us to choose easily what colors we are using, especially when printing 'black' ink!)
