It appears that the waste ink absorber of the unit is already full. youll have to consult an authorized service center to have it reset and replace the waste ink absorber.

There is a blinking red led light under lower left side of driver and steering wheel attached to dash. It blinks ALWAYs!!!


This is most likely your "Valet" alarm disable switch. Use to disable your car alarm so you can keep your Alarm Fob and let a Valet, mechanic, friend etc. operate the car without the alarm being functional. If it is an after market alarm, consult the mfg's manual, if OEM contact dealer for operating instructions.

Mint Plus Turbo Charging Cradle won't function properly


Cradle and contacts are fine. Cradle circuit is nothing but a reed relay and few wires, relay closes on proximity to robot's body, therefore no voltage on contacts before robot is close to cradle.
There is a thermistor inside of battery, and mine was bad. I removed it and now I am charging the battery from my bench power supply at about 220 ma current, overnight, and it works. Probably the solution is to get a new replacement battery, but the one with the thermistor inside (OEM), easily recognized by the third wire, and all should be fine, assuming that nothing else is wrong with charging circuit or power adapter (12v/1A)
Hope this will give you some ideas of where to poke.
Once successful, please post your solution.

I replaced a battery in my 2001 pontiac montana n the lights started blinking as if the alarm was going off.i hit the unlock n lock button n the blinking stopped. i have power,lights n radio but van wont...


It can be any of the car doors not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked. Open and close each door again properly.

Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.

And last thing alarm connections need to be inspected. It's getting short somewhere in between.


There are few help links with solutions, to troubleshoot these types of problems. I suggest going through these links.

My new Firex 21007581 with a new battery keeps chirping. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Thanks Sal


He said it had a new battery so he already did that and why would you service a $12 throw away smoke alarm? This FIREX he identified is the 4618 and will also chirp while the LED light blinks, chirp is about 30 seconds after blink if the unit itself needs to be replaced because there is something wrong with it as opposed to a different chirp pattern for battieries. If still unerwarrantee FIREX will replace otherwise go buy a new one.

Is there any thing I can do to get my theft light to stop blinking plus my 2002 nav want start help help stick out of town


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The alarm is what is causing the vehicle to not start. You may be able to pull the fuse for the alarm to get it started. There should be a code that can be entered to reset the alarm. Check your owner manual. If not, you may have to contact the dealership to get the code to reset the alarm. Try not to use your key fob to unlock the doors as this will only keep the alarm on. I doubt anything else is wrong with the vehicle. The security alarm will kill the vehicle and cause this. If the fuse doesn't work, you need that code. You may be able to take off the hot side battery post for a few minutes and reset everything. Once you do, don't use the key fob for nothing.

2) Turn on the printer while pressing the control panel button. The Drum LED comes ON.
3) Lightly press the panel button again.
Alarm LED is ON = Front registration sensor is turned ON.
4) Press and release the panel button again.

The alarm button keeps blinking. How do I get it to stop?


Well I'm sure that the alarm button is blinking for a reason. I beleive that printer is a laser so unless you dont have paper in it :)
You most likely are low on toner or need to change the drum.

Alarm lights keep blinking after I changed my printer ink.


E5 means cartridges error - to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 seconds and then release it.

You can also try this:

1) With the printer power turned off but connected to a power source, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
(DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and
Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light
alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4 times----Green (Power)------Waste ink counter resetting

Cannon MP830 Printer purchased in July, 2007. Was working fine until yesterday. suddenly when printing from PC get "Service Error 5C10 and printer alarm light begins blinking". When trying copy -...


It is one of two things.

a bad ink cartridge (the chip located on the gold part of it)
or
bad USB cable.

IF you have a spare cable simply change them out.

If you are refilling your cartridges, it is time to replace them.
