    This is part 2, now is going to a part 3 and possible 4, they don't give me much room on added comments.





    Note:









    The illustration shows color ink cartridge replacement. To replace the black ink cartridge, lift up only the smaller clamp on the left.







    Warning:









    If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a doctor immediately.





    Lift the old cartridge out and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.






    Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Next, remove only the yellow tape from the cartridge. Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge.








    Caution:











    • You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, the cartridge will become unusable and you will be unable to print.












    • If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, you must remove the cartridge and install a new cartridge. Prepare the new cartridge by removing the yellow tape, and then install the cartridge in the printer.












    • Do not remove the blue tape from the top of the cartridge; otherwise, the print head may become clogged and be unable to print.












    • Do not remove the tape from the bottom of the cartridge; otherwise, the cartridge may become unusable.












    • Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge; otherwise, normal operation and printing may not be possible

    If an ink cartridge is temporarily removed from the printer, protect its ink supply port from dirt and dust. Store the ink cartridge in the same environment as the CX1500. When storing the cartridge, be sure to position it with the label identifying the cartridge color facing up, as shown in the illustration above. The valve in the ink supply port is designed to contain any excess ink that may be released. However, careful handling is recommended. Do not touch the ink supply port of the ink cartridge or its surrounding area.











    • Be sure to always install an ink cartridge in the CX1500 immediately after removing an old ink cartridge. Failure to promptly install the ink cartridge may cause the print head to dry out and render it unable to function properly.








    Insert the ink cartridge in the ink cartridge holder, then close the ink cartridge cover. Don't try to force the cover. Make sure the cartridge is oriented as shown in the illustration below.










    The cartridge cover should click into place. If you are replacing both cartridges, press the Ink Maintenance button to switch to the color ink cartridge replacement position, and replace the cartridge as explained above.







    Caution:









    After you remove an ink cartridge, install a new one immediately. If no cartridge is installed, the print head may dry out and become unable to print.






    Note:









    The illustration shows color ink cartridge replacement. To replace the black ink cartridge, replace only the cartridge held by the smaller cartridge holder on the left.





    Close the scanner unit.






    Press the Ink Maintenance button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. This process takes about thirty seconds to complete. When ink charging is done, the printer returns the print head to its home position, the green Power light stops flashing and remains on, and the Ink light goes out.






    Caution:









    The Power light continues to flash while the CX1500 is charging ink. Never turn off the CX1500 while this light is flashing. Doing so can result in incomplete charging, which wastes ink.


    Conserving black ink when the cartridge is low
    The dialog box below appears when black ink becomes low and the following requirements are met:



    • Plain Paper is selected as the paper type on the Main menu.



    • There is more color ink than black ink.



    • The black ink cartridge is not empty.



    • The color ink cartridge is not low.

    The dialog box gives you the option either to continue using black ink normally or conserve black ink by using a mixture of color inks to create black












    By clicking the Yes button, you can use a mixture of color inks to create black when you print. Ink from the black ink cartridge is not used. In some cases, the black created by combining inks may differ slightly from that of the black ink cartridge. The dialog box appears the next time you print a job that uses black ink and again gives you the option to conserve black ink.

    By clicking the No button, you can continue using the remaining black ink for the job you are printing. The dialog box appears the next time you print a job that uses black ink and again gives you the option to conserve black ink.

    By clicking the Disable this feature button, you can continue using black ink normally. The dialog box does not appear again for the remaining life of the black ink cartridge. In this case, black ink is used normally until it runs out completely.





    That's it.



    It seems long but it's really not, it's just step by step



    Good Luck, and don't forget to leave a rating based on my Solution.



    Thanks, Mark

Can fuel sending connection be accessed thru trunk on 1997 buick lesabre custom


On some vehicles the FUEL PUMP can be accessed from under the rear seat without lower the gas tank. It would help to have more information about what your dealing with. I had trouble with my 1999 buick century, it wouldnt start. it ended up being a fuel delivery issue the shop i took the car to said i need a new fuel pump and sending lines, however i couldnt rationalize spending the money they were asking. I ended up fixing the fuel pump myself without spending any money. I got my infiormation from http://autoabsolute.ca they have an expert help section, i explained my problem and they sent me a detailed tutorial with a video that made fixing my car a breeze.

The thermostat could cause this fault or it could have lost its gas . A fridge mechanic could test it for you. Not much a lay person can do with out tools. May best to buy a new one.

How do you adjust the carburetor?


Most of the newer equipment have EPA carbs that wont allow serious carb adjustment without special tools. The tools are only supposed to be sold to service shops who will make adjustments and then put limiting caps on the adjustment screws. Anyone found defeating these systems can be fined by the EPA. If you think your carb is running a bit lean just use a little bit of choke and see if the engine picks up a bit. Then you can try mixing in some fuel system cleaner into your next tank of fuel and see if that gets you back on track. It is the cheapest way to go before spending any money on shop service or new equipment.

Be safe and good luck!

I own a 2002 hyundai elantra. one of the radiator fans is no good and i removed it. i want to replace it but i dont want to spend the money on a fan if my problem is gonna be HUGE...ONLY when it's warm...


Replace the bad fan what money you spend now is nothing compared to a new engine. Heat is the issue. If the motor only needed one fan to begin with they wouldn't have put two one radiator. Also alot of cars have one fan for the ac and one fan for cooling so without seeing the setup not sure. But I strongly advise replacing the fan that is no good asap.
