Power up the machine, the "V" groove of the hammer should be center aligned with the "." petal If not 1 remove the ribbon bracket 2 loosen screw of the daisy wheel (element) motor it has locktite on it , slide the motor up or down in its slot until the hammer and petal are aligned. If you cannot correct it this waydue to a lack of travel it becomes a more complicated job may need a typewriter repair man.

2003 Silverado 4WD. Service 4WD dash light comes on after engaging 4WD and acts up by engaging itself randomly for several days, then goes back to normal.


Check connection at the 4X4 control module , check power and grounds . Do you know how to do basic electrical testing ? Does your truck have manual or automatic trans mission ? Which transfer case does yours have ?

The NVG 263 transfer case features a three button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module (TCCM) starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/gear position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position begins flashing to inform the driver that the TCCM has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator for the new position remains ON constantly. In the event that the TCCM can not or will not complete the shift, the indicator returns to the previously selected position; this is a Transfer Case Shift Control Switch Indicator Flashes, then Returns to Previous Mode condition.

The NVG 263 transfer case provides the driver with 4 manual mode/gear positions:
• 2HI - 2 Wheel Drive high range
• 4HI - 4 Wheel Drive high range
• 4LO - 4 Wheel Drive low range
• Neutral
Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

Was driving my 2004mountaineer tool light came on and jumped out gear now won't do nothin bug grind


There are several possibilities. If you have a 4x4, the unit could be between the 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive modes. There is also a 4 wheel drive low and 4 wheel drive high mode. On some models the selector switch is similar in appearance to the blower motor selector switch. Someone could reach for the blower speed and turn the 4 wheel switch instead.

Another possibility can be a burned out led indicator switch on models which use electric shift solenoids to position the drivetrain between 2 and 4 wheel drive. The voltage gets messed up because of the burned out bulb and the shift plunger does not go into the correct position.

Have your error message read by a scanner.

I have an 2004 chevy blazer 4x4 and the four wheel drive does not engage on the fly and it also will not engage when in neutral. Four wheel low will work but when you press 4 wheel hi it blinks twice and...


Which of these does your vehicle have ?
The NVG 233 transfer case features a 3 button shift control switch, located on the instrument panel.
The NVG 236 transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel.
Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ? Both of these 4X4 systems can set DTC'S , Having a professional or factory scanner is what is needed to check for these codes . Not a OBD 2 code reader or autozone , advance etc... The four button system can set a bunch of them .

When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch, to determine if a new mode/gear position has been selected.

The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been reached, or has engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position remains ON constantly.
The NVG 233 transfer case provides the driver with 3 manual mode/gear positions:
• 2HI - 2 Wheel Drive high range
• 4HI - 4 Wheel Drive high range
• 4LO - 4 Wheel Drive low range
Any of these mode/gear positions may be selected while driving the vehicle. However, the transfer case will not allow a shift into, or out of, 4LO unless the following criteria has been met:
• The engine is running.
• The automatic transmission is in Neutral, or the clutch pedal is applied on manual transmissions.
• The vehicle speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph).


Finding out what if any codes are stored should be your first step .

How to shift into 4wd


Ford has 2 types of 4x4 system engagement. One is a knob on the dash that you just turn to 4wheel drive high or low. The other system is the 4x4 transfer case shift on the transmission tunnel (hump) between the driver and passenger seats. To shift into 4 wheel drive high while driving, just let off the gas and shift transfer case into 4H position, and continue driving. To shift into 4 wheel drive Low, stop the vehicle completely, put transmission in neutral, shift transfer case into 4Low position, put trans. in gear, and start driving. I am assuming before doing the above, you have locked in ( turned the front hubs to 4 wheel drive position.) Any further questions, let me know.

When I print on my Canon MP730, it always prints out a blank page after every print job. How can I fix this?


SOLUTION(S): Reset the Sheet Feeder Gears
If the power fails while the paper is feeding or during a print job, the paper feed gears will lose their proper
alignment. The reason is that after the power is restored the paper feed gears will attempt to return to the
home position, which may not be possible if the paper stop cam is not in the correct position.
PROCEDURES
1. Remove the sheet feeder from the unit.
2. Remove the sheet feeder motor from the sheet feeder assembly.
3. Remove the drive gear from its spindle.
4. Realign the lifting tray gear and paper stop cam gear.
5. Reinstall the drive gear and sheet feeder motor.
6. Reattach the sheet feeder to the print unit.
7. Reassemble the unit.
