Hi, I recently changed my rear brake shoes and got the drums turned but they are making a thump thump thump sound when I press on the brakes, what could be causing this. 2001 Mazda 626 Lx 2.0L L4

Worn brake hardware, the most common cause is a bad cut on the drums. The shoes might not be riding evenly on the drums or touching rust.

The dryer was making shrill noises for some time, then a thump noise, now the drum wont turn. I think it is the belt, but the belt is still intact... Where on the drum does the belt go? and what else might...

The belt may have jumped off the tension pulley. Check to make sure the belt is tight around the drum and all pulleys, then check whether all pulleys and rollers turn freely.

Toner empty error stays on when toner bottle replaced. and remains on after "toner replenishment" selected

Toner add system is clogged. These machines take toner from the bottle and dumps it into a chamber. This chamber has a level sensor that tells the machine to rotate the bottle in oder to add toner. This is why you can see a spiral "flute" going around the toner bottle. Toner is added to the Imaging Unit from the toner chamber when needed by an auger running from the chamber thru 2 90 degree turns. If the machine runs trying to add toner you normally can hear the small motor and auger spinning. It makes sort of like a reer reer noise. When the bottle rotates it will make a thump thump noise. I know this all sounds funny but this is what is happening when the machine is adding toner. Now if you are hearing the reer reer noise at least that means it is trying to add toner. Don't put a lot of emphasis on it, just letting you know what is suppose to happen. If you hear both noises together and the machine runs for a few minutes before shutting down then it is not getting toner out of the bottle.
The long and short of it is that if you have the correct toner in the machine, and the seal was removed properly from the bottle then it should get toner unless there is a clog somewhere.

Flashing pyramid of dots,

Your toner cartridge is empty. After turning it off then on again it is probably running for several minutes while making a light thump thump noise. This means it is trying to add toner but not getting any. You need to replace the toner cartridge or have it refilled.
Thank You for using Fixya.

Loud thumping noise in Frigidaire model # FDE336RES2

You have to remove the top lid. Then remove the front panel. Then remove the belt and drum.
Your problem is a bad rear drum support assembly.
Remember to unplug the dryer.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing

I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

Noisy operation and black marks on left side of printed paper

vacuum out the waste toner passages that lead from the drum and transfer belt to the waste toner container. Toner is building up inside the transfer belt and/or drum and has no place to go except onto your paper.
