Thank you for contacting to Fixya regarding your printer error message 0504.

I would like to inform you that error 0504 refers to encoder strip.

The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

Next, try to print the self test.

Cd drive code 39


What the Code 39 Error Is
CD-ROM/DVD Drive Cannot Start. (Code 39)
Code 39 is an error specific to the device manager. It is directly associated to drivers and errors that have occurred within them. Drivers are the small pieces of software that your hardware devices use to function. Each hardware device has it's own unique driver, developed by the hardware manufacturer, that contains the instructions allowing the hardware device to cooperate with other hardware devices and communicate with the operating system. Drivers are essential to the normal operation of any computer as they bridge the gap between hardware software.
Code 39 errors are amongst a wide array of device manager errors that all point to the same problem: the driver. It is not uncommon for drivers to become corrupted and produce errors during normal operation. Drivers are accessed constantly for every operation that a hardware device performs. Because of this, there are thousands of opportunities for errors during a single session of Windows. Because of this high rate of failure opportunity, many users have experienced Code 39 errors as well as many other device manager errors.
manually fixing Code 39 errors. Updating to the most current driver will replace the corrupted file with a new, better driver. Updating the driver will not only correct Code 39 errors but it will also introduce greater speed, performance, stability and compatibility.

Wont read/write hard drive


use Apple Hardware Test to diagnose the error::
1 Disconnect all external devices from your computer except the power adapter.
If you have an Ethernet cable connected, disconnect it.
2 Insert the Mac OS X Install Disc 1 that came with your computer.
3 Restart your computer and hold down the Option key as it starts up. A list of available
startup volumes appears. Click Apple Hardware Test and click the right arrow.
4 When the Apple Hardware Test main screen appears after about 45 seconds, follow the
onscreen instructions.
5 If Apple Hardware Test detects a problem, it displays an error code. Make a note of the
error code before pursuing support options. If Apple Hardware Test does not detect a
hardware failure, the problem may be software related.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I'm am trying to play age of mythology and after the movie ends, error appears and states "initialization failed".


Initialization failed

This means that the game is attempting to initialize hardware such as the video card but has failed

This can be caused by a number of factors.

1. Your hardware does not meet the games hardware requirements
2. Your hardware requires farther configuration to run the game properly



if you are certan that the game supports your hardware you may need to perform
some extra steps to get your game working

"Failed to initialize" is an incomplete error message because it does not tell you what exactly failed
a more complete error message would read "Failed to initialize the video subsystem" and then it would give an error code such as Error Code xxx telling you exactly what error code to look up
to determine what exactly failed.

Most of the time when a game says ( failed to initialize ) that means a video issue
this may mean missing files or wrong versions of files or incompatable hardware.
