    The "Initialize" indication only means that the pair of wires to the phone have some voltage on them. If the phone never does come up, it means that the data to the phone from the digital station port back at the main cabinet is either non-existent or degraded too much for use. Make sure you are wired to a digital station port and not any analog connection. Also, remember you cannot run two digital instruments from of a single port. It is slightly possible that you may have electrostatically shocked the circuit. You may cure this by a system reset.

There is no standard ways to replace the cartridge of this printer so better follow these instructions to remove the cartridge and replace it. You will need to unplug the power cable of the printer as quickly as possible after the cartridge leaves its home base position when it moves to initialize after being turn on.

  1. Turn On the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cable from the printer when the cartridge carrier left the home base position to move to the other end. (Look and see inside the cartridge carrier, when after turning on, it will initialize, the cartridge carrier will move from one end to the other end. Just as about to move in the center unplug quickly the power cord)
  3. You can now freely remove the cartridge and replace it.
  4. After replacing, push the carrier to its home and reinstate the power cable.
  5. Turn on the printer and allow to initialize

Failure to initialize after a microsoft update was installed

Go into the control panel and find the device manager. Then locate the UPS unit and right click and update driver. Then pick roll-back driver. This should install the prevous driver that was working properly. Then when you do windows update make sure to set it to hide that update so you don't re-install it again.

LG Viewty pc connection problems

I had the same problem. It was caused by the phone waiting for the date to be entered (even though it was already done). To get over the problem click on the multitask icon on the phone (top right). If anything is running other than "Home Screen" and "Menu" click on the application and close it. PC synchronisation should strat to work now.
