My son accidentally dropped a twist tie into the printer.In order to get it out I had to take the printer apart.I had to remove the wire connector and the ribbon wire came out as well when I removed the top.I replaced everything,plugged the wire connector back in and the ribbon wire.Now when I plug in the printer to power up, it seems to start up, like the paper feed sounds and the computer recognizes the printer but the power button won't come on and nothing is functioning.I wonder when the ribbon wire came off,it is now not connecting properly.I run windows XP

Re: printer will not turn on
You have already answered you own question. The ribbon wire holds about 30 wires in it. they all have to be seated in perfectly or it won't work for you. Take it to a computer store and see if they can re-seat it for you. Probably 30 bucks for labor to fix.

No need to take the unit apart. The "gunk" or clog is he inner tubing of the hose connection. To solve the problem, do the following:
Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and disconnect the hose.
Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic
Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connector & tubing.
Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will
need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either
bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip
Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs.
As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water
may follow. Reconnect the hose, plug the unit in and turn the Master
ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or
Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run,
while you monitor it for any leakage.
NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers.
I hope this helps you solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.
No, you don't need to drop the gas tank at all. The tie rods are what the rack pushes on when you steer the wheel. This is turn allows left and right turns. to get to the tie ros follow these instructions.
You need to remove the wheel.
Now remove the cotter pin from the bolt going through the middle ball joint bolt/nut (this is the tie rod ball joint.)
Now zip the nut off the ball joint bolt.
Now take a big mallet and hit the side of the spindle a couple times real real good to loosen that bolt up. If it does not pop up the you can screw the nut on that bolt a few times to give you a safe spot to tap it up. Please note failure to use the nut on the bolt before hitting it will ruin the threads.
Now you have access to the outside tie rod. It should twist right off with the use of a couple wrenches.

Might be something deep inside your printer causing this. I had same problem and i got fed up and took printer apart, there was actually a small tiny screw sitting way below the rollers. My son probably dropped in there. I removed it and put back together and it worked perfect.
Is there a small thumbscrew on it, sometimes the have limiters on em to make it only go so fast. Otherwise, take the twistgrip apart, see if the cable is locked up, lube the grip and cable until all is free
Your question is: Your son accidentally put dishwashing soap (for dishwashers) in the area where the jetdry stuff goes? Can this be corrected?
Yes, but I don't recomend this to the average homeowner because it requires taking the door apart. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman. You could just use the d/w, I don't think it will hurt anything and it will quickly flush itself out.

the button maybe stuck i couldnt really say anything until i saw it , but my suggestion is ... take the phones full housing case apart with a t6 or t7 torx screwdriver and then see if the button is stuck or is in fully working order and it is just a technical problem
