How do I connect the cable that goes between the top and base?
I had to remove the top to repair a problem that occurred when I removed a jammed piece of paper from the printer. Since the flexible ribbon cable is quite short, it pulled out of the "conenctor" located in the top of the printer when I attempted to set the top down.
I have no idea how to reconnect the two ribbon cables to the PCB.

Re: How do I connect the cable that goes between the top...
If the ribbon cable has snapped there is no point trying to repair it any further, unless you have the exact replacement cable. getting the spare part and having it the printer serviced could be time consuming and end up costing the price of a new printer and more

Re: How do I connect the cable that goes between the top...
There should be a wide plastic connector on each piece it ran between.
You will usually have to slide a little plastice piece out or flip it up where the ribbon cable connects. After that, you may or may not have to use a little force to get the ribbon cable back in.
If the connector piece on the board is flat as apposed to facing up, there should be a plastic tab on the ribbon cable, this generally faces up.
This goes for both connectors.
Hope this helps!

In our case this error means that the grandkids have jammed jigsaw puzzle pieces in the main blower at the front. The manual says to return to service centre for repair. If you've got a philips head screwdriver, you can fix it yourself. First REMOVE POWER CORD FROM WALL. Remove back cover, undo 7 phillips head screws, note the bottom 2 are longer for assembly. Remove front cover by undoing 3 screws on each side. Be careful with fine ribbon cable you can unplug it at the connector on the unit. Remove whatever has jammed the main blower, in our case it was jigsaw puzzle pieces, that could not be seen when the unit was assembled. Replace front cover, don't forget the ribbon cable. The front cover sort of goes back on from the bottom front first, and is snug over the top. Replace back cover, (remove dust from internal radiator fins first). Leave turned off for an hour or so if you had the unit upside down to remove blockage. Boom you just saved yourself a couple of hundred bucks probably.
There are two cables leading to the throttle. Both have two pieces. Cable 1 goes from the throttle about 12" long and connects to an adjustment piece joining it to cable2 which goes to the throttle body. Cable 3 also goes from the throttle and is about 12" long and connects to and adjustment piece joining it to cable 4 which goes to the spring on the throttle body. To change any of them you must loosen the adjustment piece until the ends can be removed from it. Then to change cables 1 and 3 you have to remove the throttle cover on the grip. you will be able to see how they are removed. Then reverse these steps to install the new cable. To change cables 2 and 4 in no more difficult but more time consuming as you will have to route these longer cables from the adjuster to where they connect to the throttle body. When cables have been install and all parts reassembled you can carefully adjust the tension on the cables until the throttle responds the way you like it. Hope this helps
Without seeing the printer or knowing what you have already done....a "13.20 Jam inside top cover" error means that a jam occurred in the registration assembly area. Remove the toner cartridge. Remove all paper from inside printer. You should see a metal flap. That's part of the "registration assembly". Lift it up and make sure that all paper pieces are removed. Use a flashlight if you can. Make sure that the media size that you are using matches the tray settings and the dial on the tray. Reinstall the cartridge and try again.

Hi, Music and game discs collect dust and dirt on their surfaces overtime. This build-up can interfere with the sound and performance of both discs and the player system. Cleaning fluids and cloths will aid in keeping a Blu-ray discs clean, but to clean the lens of the player, some dissembling is required. Below are instructions on how to open up a Blu-ray player and clean the lens on the inside.
Things You'll Need:
* Blu-ray player * Screwdriver * Lens cleaner * Cotton swab
Turn Blu-ray player over and remove the edge screws holding the bottom plate onto the drive using a small Philip's head screwdriver. These screws are located opposite each other on the bottom edge and one has a metal piece attached. Remember to reattach the metal piece when replacing screws later.
Remove the bottom two edge screws located near the center of the base and the three screws holding the base plate at the opposite edge from the screws in step 1. Again, one of the edge screws will have a metal piece that goes back in place later.
Extract the motherboard connectors. Once the screws are out, simply lift the lid and pull out the connector. The cable remains connected to the motherboard.
Remove the motherboard by lifting it and turning it to the right to pull out the cable connection. Do not yank the cable out. Grip the end plug firmly to release the cable.
Turn the player back over the right way and remove top cover to unscrew the four sides and one top screw holding the lens cover in place. The lens cover moves to the right so lens is accessible for cleaning.
Use cotton swab dipped in a little lens cleaner and clean the lens using a circular motion. Dry the lens using same motion with other end of the cotton swab.
Follow these steps: 1.1 Remove all paper from the trays. This will prevent further jams during the clearing. 2.2 Remove the covering to the printer's outer case to expose the jam. Locate the jammed paper to ensure there is not another problem causing the stall. 3.3 Pull gently on the jammed paper, taking care not to tear it. In most cases, this will remove the jam. 4.4 Press the flashing "Printer Jam" button. This will allow the rotors to turn and facilitate the release of the jam. 5.5 Turn off the printer and firmly pull on the jammed paper. Be careful not to tear it. 6.6 Remove remaining paper shreds. if a tear occurs, remove any residual paper that may hamper printing. 7.7 Refill the paper tray and try printing again. If the jam persists, repeat the process and search for more paper.
When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer
beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When
a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following
procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the
paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper
following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of
paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the
printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.
That ball shaped piece is directly connected to the fork inside the transmission. If this is broken then the trans needs to come apart, at least on the top end and the old fork removed and any gear damamge repaired before the new one goes in. Best to take this type of repair to a local trans shop as it is not a project for a novice.

If the paper tears when you are removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the HP All-in-One. If you do not remove all the pieces of paper from the HP All-in-One, more paper jams are might occur.
Replace the rear clean-out door and gently push it forward until it snaps into place.
On the HP All-in-One control panel, press OK to continue the current job.
If the paper is still jammed, see the onscreen Troubleshooting Help that came with the HP Image Zone software.
If the jam occurs again, check to make sure the paper type in the printer matches the paper type set in the printer driver properties
