Electric motors all typically work the same way. A current is run threw a loop in this case the copper coils in the center. This produces a magnetic field. The field magnets surrounding the copper cause the center + shaft to rotate one way. Now normally once the copper center rotated to a certain point it would reverse direction. To keep this from happening the copper that contacts where the current comes in is designed such that it reverses the flow so the center part keeps rotating the correct direction. This flip flop of current repeats and thus your motor keeps rotating in one direction.

Digital input cable optical

The Alesis doesn't have an optical input.

It will only receive digital input in PCM, at the sample rates shown on the front panel - 44.1k to 96k

If you're trying to feed it an encoded Dolby Digital, or similar Home Theatre-type signal, it will not work, as these are not PCM-encoded signals.

Tired of 4wd issues truck goes from 2wd to 4hi and just now went from 2 to 4 low without touching a button really sucks cuz i aint watching range light when i aint doin it ran like **** in 4 lo didnt wanna...

I have no idea what type of truck it is, however, If its a trailblazer, envoy or bravada it will be a faulty TCCM (Transfer Case Control Module). If its a blazer or S-10 it will probably be a faulty switch, if the service 4wd light is on or the lights are flashing it could be the encoder motor on the transfer case. There is an update for the encoder alignment motor. If it is a full size pick-up, tahoe, yukon or suburban, it is most likely a faulty switch. Early models also had issues with the TCCM randomly picking a mode. Let me know what type of truck it is.

Error code 5100

Error code 5100 indicates that Carriage Return (CR) error occurs. This error rise when carriage unit (the part that function as cartridge housing) does not move properly. Here are some possibilities of the problem:
  1. Carriage unit is faulty so that it cannot 'read' film timing **** strip (film encoder) properly
  2. Film encoder is dirty. Film encoder functions as a guide for carriage unit to move to the correct position it should be. Carriage unit 'read' the encoder by flashing a light from a LED. Dirty encoder sometimes make the light direction is deviated.
  3. Foreign material blocking carriage unit path. Please check inside the printer and remove it if any.

If carriage unit is faulty, you need bring the printer to the service center to get part replacement. For dirty film encoder,sometimes you can still clean it by using moistened cloth. I hope this will HELP you. Thanks.

Will not print or shut off comes up unable to print 50

I had this same problem and it is an easy fix. It is similar on all brother printers but mine was a 5860CN.

Lift the lid on your printer and at the back you can see the opening where the print head is.
With the power off, use your finger to move the print head into the middle.
Now feel under the lip of the cover at the front of the gap and you will find a plastic strip that runs from one side to the other. This is the encoding strip and it what the print head uses to read where it is. This encoding strip is easily pushed out of position when a paper jam occurs and all you need to do is to get it back into position. Using both hands use a finger on either side of the print head and lift the encoding strip upwards slightly and move slightly towards the back of the printer. This will locate it back into the correct position in the print head when you release. You can feel this with your fingers. Power back on and the problems will be gone!
Remember and be gentle so as not to damage the encoder strip!

Ecoquest Purifier was working when I went to work. When I returned, it was not running and would not start


The RCI Cell must probably be replaced, this must be done about every three years. Ecoquest has no website or online support. You can get support calling the number listed on the manual below.

The part costs about $90, parts available here.

Replacement is explain at page 15 in manual available here.

There is also a debate on health concerns related to ionized air purifiers. Here Ecoquest answer, stating the product is safe.

On the other hand:

The Dangers of Ionic Air Purifiers

Ionic Air Cleaners

Please read also this article.

Before replacing any part I suggest to read the articles. Ozone related concerns have caused the recall of other similar devices.

Hp psc 2400 scanner motor stuck in repeating motion

Unfortunately, in this case HP's support site doesn't offer a lot of help. See here. or here.
This article will get you part way there if you decide to dig in and try to work on it yourself.
If you want to talk to the HP techs, see here.
If you're interested in reading a forum full of posts about the same issue, see here. and here. Read far enough and you'll see some solutions proposed, some of which may work in your situation.
Apparantly, if the scanner doesn't correctly read an encoder strip on the underside of the glass, which causes the motor to keep engaging even when the scanner bulb is fully retracted, and the belt starts slipping gears, causing the noise, etc.
And when the code isn't read, the alignment fails and the printer won't work. That's what I remember from the last time I looked into this, anyway.
Good luck with it...
If you don't feel comfortable yourself, perhaps some able and competent friend will be willing to have a look.
Otherwise, you'll have to get it serviced.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Chevrolet Suburban 4 Wheel Drive Indicator Lights

Just serviced my own 4x4 Suburban, by buying a 2nd hand encoder motor and replaced the old one, which was trashed by the winter salt. The device is prone to failure since it's made of alluminium and water has an easy time of entering the unit and trashing it.

CAUTION: Abbreviated gratuitous information of how an encoder motor was serviced. If unqualified to deal with repair, seek professional service.
CAUTION: Read at one's own risk.

To replace it, you need to crawl under the vehicle and remove the front drive shaft;

Disconnect the electric harness to the encoder motor, followed by unbolting it.

Take replacement encoder motor and install. There may be an issue with aligning the cogged cam of the transfer case to the encoder motor. If so, the vehicle's 4 wheels will need to be raised off the ground. The engine started, transmission in Park, and using a Vice-Grip® wrench gently rotate cam clockwise approximately 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch, then while set in this position, stop engine. Now attempt to align and attach the encoder motor.

After successfully attaching new encoder motor, attach its wiring loom.
Test vehicle.

Carrier jam

This strip is called the encoder strip. I found this fix online, which is very similar to the 5470.

The only difference you'll have is the encoder stip fits INSIDE the cartridge carrier. I'll attach a photo to show you where. Good luck!

I have a Roland Versacamm and as it's printing an image that is supposed to be a rectangle shape 40"x60" it prints out the image is not straight it actually looks wavey like a flag? The printer was OK...

this sounds like a scan motor error. clean encoding strip and test. If still wavy remove scan sensor the one that reads the encoder strip, clean with alcohol, replace and test. if still bad replace encoder strip and the eye that reads it.
