I have a BMW 320 CI SPORT, but fuel gauge is not working even when is fully tank. I don't know what is wrong. The amber light is constantly on. The fuel tank is not reading Please help with any suggestions

lift out the rear seat and remove the fuel pump and gauge unit. Cover the tank with a piece of plastic and tape and tape to stop fumes escaping. See if the float is still there. Check the follower on the level resistor. If the resister strip is black, try to gently clean it with a pencil eraser. Swing the arm up and down and see if your gauge moves

My Sony TC WR 535 wont open doors, one cassette in deck B,lights blinked in display panel then unit shut down, not been able to turn it on since

Remove the cover after unplugging AC. Look for a plastic stop that keeps the eject button from going in farther. Move the plastic stop peice downward and the buttom will then move in all the way and tape will eject. On mine the plastic piece is white and rotates down.

A thick black line prints out on back of paper every time i print.

called the local Canon printer repair facility, and a serviceman said that the black line is caused by too much ink in the ink absorber device below the paper path. He said to fix it requires disassembling part of the printer, replacing the absorber foam, installing a longer tip for the excess ink, and reassembling and testing the printer. I asked if this would be a permanent fix. He said no, that the problem could reoccur as the absorber foam would eventually fill up again.
This was posted 2 years ago by Shadyman.
The foam he is talking about is underneath the gray metallic strip that you see when you open the cover.
I used strips of electrical tape to cover that area where the ink is being picked up.
You can open the cove more by dislodging the piston on the right side. Needs two people, one to push the flaps apart and the other to pull the joint out.
Cut a 4 inch long strip, than fold the tape on it self such that there is about 3/4 of sticky tape left. This will allow you to push that portion underneath the metal strip where the paper normally would go. Place it at the location where the black line is (on the Paper). This will create a barrier between the foam and the paper as it moves by. ( I just had to figure out how I can do that)
Secure the tape by taping it on the the black bar, the one with the little fins on it.
I was able to push the tape down a little gap between the black bar and where the white rollers are. Make sure that the tape lays as flat as possible on that bar.
You may need to use two tape strips to cover the area..
I can also see my strips as I look from the outside at the **** where the paper comes out the printer onto the tray.
I guess the the foam swells up and hits a roller, which than offset prints the ink onto the underside of the paper.
Now I have no black line any more.
I know it's a fix, not a repair, but it works so fare.
Thanks to Shadyman for leading me in the right direction.

How do I intstall a black ink cartridge in a hp desk jet 5550 printer?

Follow these steps to install the cartridges. Step Example
  1. Make sure the product is on.
  2. Open the top cover. Wait until the carriage moves to the center of the product and is idle and silent.
  3. Open the cartridge latch.
  4. If you are replacing the cartridge, slide the old cartridge out of its slot.
Figure 6: Open the product and remove the old cartridgec00160484.gif Remove a new cartridge from its packaging, and then carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the cartridge so that the copper strip is on the bottom.
CAUTION: Do not touch the cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts. Figure 7: Remove the protective tapec00160485.png

Marantz Cassette Deck Model Sd 35 Tape door will not open

It sounds like the drive belts on the deck have broken (not allowing playing, FF or REW) and/or the tape got "eaten" meaning the tape itself has wound itself around the rollers and cannot free itself. I strongly doubt this is an electrical issue. Definately sounds mechanical.

As far as the door not opening, there's usually a hook that holds the door closed. If the unit is mostly disassembled, look near one of the sides of the door for a metal hook. It's normally spring loaded and can be moved manually. That should free the door. If your tape was eaten, it might take some gentle persuasion to unwrap it from the rollers.

Good luck.

Canon BJC 4200 not working

Open the printer and see if you can look along where the carriage moves back and forth. There should be what looks like a clear plastic strip or 'mylar' behind it that runs along the length of the printer.
This mylar has tiny lines in it (too small for us to see.) The carriage contains a sensor that looks through the mylar (the mylar is called an encoder strip) to find out where it is. If you can see the encoder strip, wipe it with a slightly damp rag.  Be careful not to bend or kink it.  If it is warped, it is probably shot. Then move the carriage all the way to the other side and wipe what you couldn't get at.
