Question about Canon PIXMA MP180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Machine will not switch on

I have not used the equipment for some months, and it has been stored in the garage. Now I have plugged it in once again, and I only get a warning light (orange triangular light bottom left below display panel). The on/off button does not work, and no other buttons do anything either.
Is there something which needs to be reset?
Many thanks

Chevrolet MK05UZF Electric windows not working, huming noise when pressed Garage inspected then worked once but dont work again any ideas of parts or is it wiring loose? Idea on cost parts and labour?

Get some spray silicone from an auto parts store or department store with an automotive section. If the windows are down, or partly down, spray a small amount of the silicone spray (using the straw on the spray nozzle) down the window tracks, especially the rear track. If the window won't go down, have someone operate the switch while you use both hands on either side of the window to 'push' it down, then spray along the tracks. Once they start moving on their own, spray a small amount again, and exercise the windows up and down until they operate freely.

Refrigerator not cooling

there could be oil blocking up the tube in the evaporator
ry switching it off for a day to allow the oil to drain back to the compressor
if that doesn't work get in a technician and get a quote to fix
when the sign says --do not lay down on the side -- then you have just found out the reason why it is not done

What does an engine indicator lamp means?

The check engine light could indicate many different faults! The only way to be sure is to get the fault codes read! This will indicate where the fault is! If you do not have a code reader then take it to a garage to have this done!

I stored my mercedes for 4 week and the battery is dead it is normal

Yes, it is totally normal for your Mercedes battery to go dead after 4 weeks of non use due to the onboard computers that drain on the battery. I store my Mercedes for up to 5-6 months at a time. The solution is to install a battery tender that plugs into a power outlet in your garage and this will maintain proper charge in the battery and then will shut itself off until the voltage drops below the threshold again , then will kick on and bring the battery up to full charge. Any auto parts store, ie. Napa, Auto Zone, Pep Boys, etc. carries them. Cost is approx. $35-$45 and take the average person 1/2 hour to install.

Hello I have a rotel RSX 1056 witch I used once six years ago for two months . I lhavent used it since then , and now I decided to hook it back up and I have no audio . It turns on but when I set a radio...

If you stored it in an area with high moisture content it is probably corroded at most of the contact switches. Capacitors also hate moisture, especially paper capacitors! The tuner is also probably oxidized inside. Now is the time to be brave and pull it apart, but first PULL OUT THE PLUG from the wall. Have at it with electric parts cleaner spray and clean, dry compressed air. If you believe that just because you stored it in your house, there was no moisture, think again! Radios like cars do not do well in storage unless you take precautions to protect them!

Car wont start but is turning over something is killing the battery

Hello i suspect your car has no ignition spark best method to check is to first purchase a spark tester tool if you haven't one it is the most efficient way to accurately test for spark and coat around $10.00 to $15.00 dollars most auto part stores carry them.Once you have the tool remove the first ignition wire clamp the spark tester to a solid ground of metal such as fender crank the engine you should see a nice clean flow of spark if you do not change you ignition coil.Remove the retainer bolt with proper wrench size unplug the ignition coil wire and the two smaller wires as seen.Now reinstall new one in the same manner as removed.You might consider inspecting the spark plugs to see if they are wet from previous attempt of starting with out spark most time that is the case if necessary.Now restart your engine.Once you have started your engine you might consider going to a local garage to have a load test and charging test competed to configure the battery being drained this equipment is expensive and mostly large garages have that sort of high end expensive equipment.John

Long-term storage

Fuel is meant to be used not stored over extended periods of time .. yes put some additives in it there are several and most can be picked up at your local auto parts store for relatively cheap. it would also be a good idea to start it up and have it run for about 5 - 15 min each month just to keep everything free flowing and running. also it would not be a bad idea to put a cover (one made for your car or a tarp) just to keep the dust off and any animals that may share your garage this will help prevent any cratching or fading of the paint

The wheelchair does not come on or light up at all. When I put t

Your batteries have shorted out internally. If you have a 2/10 Amp car battery charger, you may be able to bring them back to life like so...

- Switch the charger to 2 Amps
- if your chair uses two 12V batteries, connect the car charger across only one of them. If it uses four 6V batteries, connect across two. Be sure to match red to plus and black to minus!
- plug in the charger and watch the Ammeter meter. If it "pegs" and won't come down, the battery is toast. If it goes down to aboult half, you are on your way.
- When the meter gets down to about 1/4, switch to 10 Amps. The meter will again go up.
- When the meter drops to about 1/4 again, the battery is charged,
- Repeat above for the next battery.

This process will take several hours per battery. You don't have to remove the batties from the chair. However, it would be a good idea to do so in case a battery fails.

Good Luck !

Remotes don't work

I recently had Verizon FIOS equipment installed in my garage (for phone, internet and TV), which is plugged into a 110 volt electrical outlet. Thinking this equipment might be causing some RF interference, I unplugged the FIOS equipment, and both garage door openers immediately worked perfectly again!
After reconnecting the FIOS equipment, I then plugged the garage door opener into a different electrical outlet approximately 15 ft. away via an extension cord, and the openers continue to work fine. Fingers crossed, I hope the issue is permanently resolved.
