Could be because the video head is worn, however, in some LG/NEC VCR's from a few years ago had a problem with the video head plug not fitting into it's socket correctly... So try disconnecting, and reconnecting the vid head... Does the picture look OK before the message appears? You need to make sure you remove any dirt inside the 3-4mm holes on the side of the head cylinder, just be careful not to copper windings inside.

The printer won't print. Instead, an error message appears that says, "The type of print head is incorrect. Install the correct print head." Why this now, since I've been using the same printer...


(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work, then you need to try soaking the print head. In this case:
(1) Remove the print head from the printer
(2) Soak it in hot water for an hour or so
(3) Remove it, let it dry completely
(4) Replace the print head and cartridges and test it

Even after reinstalling printhead an ink cartridges on Kodakhero 5.1 printer, I still get the error message that the printhead is loose, missing, or not properly installed. What do I do?


Most likely this is a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. If for some reason it does not follow these instructions:
(a) Unplug the printer
(b) Manually slide the carriage over until you can get the ink cartridges out.
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in isopropyl alcohol or hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

Open the player. Clean the lens of laser pickup with cotton swab soaked in ethyl alcohol. In place of ethyl alcohol nail paint remover also works well.

Phase linear uv8 DOSE NOT PLAY DVDS


Remove cover of player, you will see glass eye which is laser eye. Take rubbing alcohol and cotton swab and clean the eye with the alcohol soaked cotton swab. If this player is self- fixable, than this will do the trick. If cleaning the laser eye didn't help, than they player will have to be repaired or replaced.

Will only play in black and white. worked in color last night


You can try cleaning the laser disc head with a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol. Apply a small amount of alcohol on the tip of a cotton swab and rub it back and forth gently across the laser head unitl it looks bright and shines. Use the dry side of the swab to remove any excessive moisture from the head. Check the laser transport and make sure its action is smooth and easy. Clean it with a cotton swab and a small amount of alcohol.Use a can of compressed air to blow clear any dust and debris in the laser disc compartment.Now try to play your disc and see if it operates normally. If not you can call Zenith customer service at this telephone number 1-800-243-0000 give them the model number of your dvd player and the problem you are having with loss of color. They will be able to tell you how to get service for the problem. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Disc spins, but no image.


The unit is having a problem with the laser transport being out of alignment.You need to clean and clear all the dust and debris in the transport and laser disc compartment. To do this you will need a can of compressed air, isopropyl alcohol, cotton swabs, and a small can of lithium grease.You need to use compressed air to clean away all dust and dirt from the laser transport and laser playing head.Next you will need to use a cotton swab with a small amount of alcohol on the tip and clean the laser head. Rub the swab gently across the head of the laser until it appears bright and shines. Then use the other side of the swab to remove any excess moisture from the laser head. Now you must check the transport rails and gears. Clean them with a cotton swabs and a small amounts of alcohol. Next move the laser transport from the most inner position to the most outer position. The action must be smooth and easy. If the action is not smooth you must apply a small amount of lithum grease a cotton swab and rub the transport rails and gears. Do not use too much grease or you will create more problems. Check the transport action again by moving it in and out to see if the action is working properly. If it seems to working correctly. Test the dvd player with a music cd to see if it plays correctly.let it play all the way through.Next try a dvd and see if plays correctly. If it does then the repair is completed if not you may have other problems with the player. Like a bad or worn laser head. A bad motor than can no longer spin the discs correctly. These problems should be checked out in a service center. You can call for service information at the Zenith customer support telephone number. 1-800-243-0000. They will be able to tell you how to get service for the dvd player. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Disc Skips


The non-technical answer would be that the lens needs to be cleaned. This is the first step for this type of problem. There are many things that can get the disk drive lens dirty like smoke, incense, dust, moisture. Open the unit and open the DVD cover. You will see the lens that reads a DVD. Get a cotton swab (the ones for cleaning out ears) and some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and moisten the cotton swab with the alcohol (moisten not soak) and gently (I mean, do not push hard or scrub hard) rub it on the lens. Now with a dry cotton swab, do the same. Let it dry for a minute (longer if the swab had more alcohol and it might have dripped down) and close the unit. Now try to play DVDs and let us know if it worked. Thanks.
