The carriage uses a code strip to keep track of its location. This is a very thin and very fragile strip of plastic material behind the carriage. If the code strip becomes dirty with dust or ink overspray, the carriage sensor can't read the code bars, and the printer shows a carriage jam error. This is the most common reason for this error. Very carefully clean the code strip with a clean lint-free cloth (I don't recommend paper towels) with isopropyl or denatured alcohol. You can use a q-tip also. Gently rub the code strip front and back with the alcohol-soaked cloth along the entire length, being careful not to pull the strip since the ends can easily tear. If this does not clear the error, there may be dust or dirt clogging the carriage sensor itself.

How do I fix my Taylor Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine? It often trips the breaker even though the machine is switched off.


Contact a service engineer. It has a dead short probably from the compressor or the paddle motor. It is a refrigeration unit, so you can't really work on it yourself.

C45 Cross Trainer drive belt replacement


Needs
Cost = £25 for drive belt + any tools needed (saving of £150 - £200).
Tools = Long shafted crosshead screwdriver, 3 & 4 & 6mm hex keys, metric spanners, ratchet tie-down luggage straps (2), wire twists.
Time = 3-4 hours.
Difficulty = Moderate.
General
The 15mm grooved belt is tensioned by a spring loaded jockey pulley. Dealing with this is the crux. Handing is relative to front view of the machine. Beware of magnetic field near brake when running under load - pace-makers, watches etc.
Procedure
1. Disconnect dc supply and remove plug. Clear access is needed to both sides, with most of the work done from RHS.
2. Disconnect both drive arms from the drive discs using hex key. Pull front ends outwards to clear the trunnions. Push both arms back out of the way. (Drive discs cannot be removed without special tools).
3. Remove RHS cover using crosshead driver to undo screws in deep slots round edge.
4. Remove dc socket from LHS cover (hex nut) before removing LHS cover.
5. Working from RHS, note layout of electromagnet brake unit. Cut out old belt. Remove jockey spring.
6. Plates on either side clamp the magnet core. Remove the RHS plate only (which also carries the jockey pulley crank). Remove hex nut on end of brake pulley shaft. Use spanner and hex key to remove 4 long bolts one at a time and partially reinsert each from LHS - this prevents the short aluminium spacers on LHS from falling out. Don't lose the long spacers or the crank mounting bell washer from RHS. Remove 2 short screws from lower edge of plate using hex key. Each has a plain and a spring washer. Do not slacken the corresponding 2 screws on LHS, since that risks disturbing the distance between the driving and brake axes.
7. Remove old belt debris and clean.
8. Pass new belt over RHS drive disc. Fit centrally into grooves on topside of disc only, leaving enough slack to fit centrally round the small brake pulley.
9. Grease mounting washer and replace crank with jockey pulley hanging underneath belt. Refit RHS plate, starting with the spindle hex nut. Take care that each bolt passes through both long and short aluminium spacers. (There seems no reason to remove and reinsert the bolts from RHS - this only increases the chance of dislodging the small spacers). If a spacer does move, use a wire twist to hold in place temporarily while inserting bolt. Ensure that all bolts and screws are fully tightened before step 10.
10. Refit jockey spring, ensuring that the pulley pushes against belt's lower surface. Anchor ratchet tie-down to back foot of machine, wrap round crank arm, then pull back spring as far as possible. Use 2 tie-downs for safety and maximum tension.
11. Slowly rotate RHS drive disc anticlockwise while keeping belt central on both pulleys. Use a screwdriver blade to prevent the belt jumping the grooves on the brake pulley and slipping off the jockey pulley. Once the belt is grooved, keep turning to check that it runs true - no grooves should be visible on the brake pulley. Use side pressure while turning to re-position. Mind your fingers.
12. Release tie-downs very carefully, since the spring reacts with a bang. Temporarily attach drive arms and dc supply. Test. When satisfied that all is OK and belt runs true under load, detach drive arms, replace LHS cover, dc socket, RHS cover, drive arms, and plug in dc supply.

My Intermatic T103 Indoor 120-Volt 40-amp timer emits a constant peeping sound


Intermatic T103 is mechanical timer with moving gears.
Timer makes audible sound when tripper clicks on-off, but it should not make constant noise unless gears are causing noise.
Turn off power and spray WD-40 on gears and see if problem continues.
WD-40 vapor is extremely flammable hydrocarbon when sprayed, and should not be sprayed on live electric circuits.
If problem continues, turn off power, pull mechanism out and spray WD-40 on plastic gears of clock motor.
Open following links for illustrations of clock motor and removing mechanism.

Hello, The correction ribbon does not raise high enough to erase any text. It raises just enough to catch the bottom part of lower case g, j, etc. Any help with this issue would be appreciated. Thanks...


Underneath the ribbon cassette base on the RHS there is access to a small "phillips head" screw. Remove the ribbon cassette, move the carriage to the LHS,POWER OFF. Loosen the screw, do not remove it or you will have a hard time getting it back in....once loosened, lift the cassette base up or down to the required position, tighten the screw. re-install tape and try machine...adjust as necessary.

RH rear view mirror responds intermittently when selected and attempting to adjust. On lexus RX330.


Check for anything that could be jamming the mirror, can you move the mirror in the housing manually.

Can you use the controls to move the mirrors to the rhs, up dn and lhs extremes. This may pop a gear that may be out of position.

Last if it is an intermittant elect connection, pop off the switch from the dash to check the connector on the back.

When turn on typewriter there is an continuous beeping/screeching noise and will not operate.


Remove print wheel to ensure its not jamming, switch machine back on and see if carriage returns to the LHS home position. If it does not and the carriage is just shaking and the noise is still there, you may have a defective carriage motor or defective power supply.

You helped me CLEAN the HP PSC 1610
it had MASIVE amounts of waisted ink
in the area that it WANTS to waste ink
to keep the cartridges FLOWING...
BUT... NOW ... HERE IS A SOLUTION TO
THE CLICKING NOISE
THE RATCHIT NOISE
HP PSC 1610 NOISE
It seems that HP (as with most all manufacturers)
has DESIGNED-IN A PART THAT WILL BREAK ! ! !
PICTURE ATTACHED
explanation...
opened the mid section of the printer
moved the ink holder module to the far left
pushed the cleaning tray
(it moves to you and away from you)
away towards the rear of the machine
used masive amounts of isopropyl alcohol
and an old toothbrush
to clean most of the gunk ink buld-up
(started with q-tips but it was not enough)
After cleaning ... the machine worked again...
BUT
that noise was still there
after carefull inspection
I saw the problem
there was a hairline crack in a small plastic part
above a rotating gear
when the carriage came to the right
it was suposed to move that part
off or away from the gear
but because it was cracked
it did not move properly
SOLUTION
crazy glue or super glue
and shim to hold in place while drying
(maby heat with a light bulb while drying)
SEE ATTACHED PHOTO WITH NOTES....

Head carriage stays left and grinds


Did you check to see if the ink was low in the printer? Epson wont let you print if the ink is low, happened to me before!
