I have seen this problem with this series of printer. (all the ones shaped like this ie. 5150) The lid will not close all the way on the right side (this is where the lid triggers the door open/close sensor flag). Somehow the sensor flag gets out of alignment over time where the top can't close properly to trigger it. The simplest solution is take something and wedge it where the tab from the lid would come down and make contact with this sensor flag. Print with the lid open or set the lid down on whatever you use to trigger the sensor flag. Hint: when testing and problem solving in house, I use a small piece of paper folded up several times to trigger door open/closed sensors that way I can watch the printing process and diagnose problems.

Model ftw3011kwo washing machine won't work after breaking locking lid piece


Thank you for your inquiry, David Castro!

I understand that your Frigidaire washer is not working after the lid piece became broken. If the lid piece is not latching properly inside of the door latch then your washer is not registering the door is closed and will not start. You may need to have that piece replaced I would recommend having any electrical component replaced by an authorized technician. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

I have a Whirlpool AWM 6100. The light indicating door is open is on, however there is nothing obstructing the door and is is closed? Won't work with this light on, and can't open door!


Very possible the door latching mechanism is faulty because when door is closed the contacts in the switch will see condition is correct for operation and light will extinguish. With power plug pulled out, remove the lid and buy using a small screwdriver try and wedge the doot latch open from the inside. Possibly it will need to be broken off to remove. Once off, door will open then replace with new one.

The door that keeps the batteries and memory card will not stay closed. Can it be fixed?


Mine is broken also. There are 2 tabs in the cover and 2 raised slots on the camera body. When you open the battery compartment, you are supposed to slide the lid forward releasing the tabs from the slots, before the cover pops open. If you don't do this, you ~will~ break the tabs (or the raised slots). Well someone who didn't know this got a hold of my camera tried to force the compartment door open, breaking the raised slots that are part of the camera body.
Take a close look at yours and figure out how this latch is supposed to work and then see which part is broken. If it's the tabs on the door you can buy a replacement door online (do a search) and have someone good with electronics install it. (requires soldering). If (like me) it's the slots on the camera body that are broken, then it's not repairable. The original parts are too small and flimsy to be repaired (designed to fail). My best idea is to find some other way to latch the door closed. I've tried a velcro strap but it doesn't hold the lid tight enough and I've looked in hardware and craft stores for some kind of latch that might work, if I could atach it to the outside of the door somehow, but haven't found anything suitable (it would have to be small but sturdy and attach to the thin plastic of the door)
I'm thinking of taking it to a jeweler because they work with very small parts and might have something that could be screwed into the plastic door and camera body.
If you know of a better fix, please let me know.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

The cover will not close completely and I cannot print.


Lift the printer cover. There is a slot on the right side by the ink cartridges. push the end of your little finger into the slot. Close the lid. This has helped me many times. It seems the latch will stick and this usually unsticks it.

Battery door doesn't close tight


Usually part of the plastic battery door breaks off so the sliding latch (when you push the battery door in toward the camera after replacing batteries) can't latch. If this is the problem you can buy a new battery door that will come with a new latch that isn't broken.
