There is a tension piece hanging on the left side of the printer..(you have to take the white cover of the printer off..unscrew it) you attach the plastic strip on the tension piece and then right next to it is a little piece of plastic sticking out push the strip along it so it stick in side the hole on the strip... then u run the plastic strip along the back of the ink cart where there is a red light..that is what controls the speed. when it comes thru attach the other end to the plastic piece sticking out on the right side and it should work..If I am thinking of the same piece.

Hope this helps :)

The printer (Lexmark X5340) display "cover open"


Short of slamming the cover closed there is a small tab that tells if it is open or closed. It should be located on the lower right hand corner. Once you find it just put a small piece of paper there or plastic and you should have no more problems.

Brother printer, paper inside, but I do not see paper inside.


PAPER JAMMED INSIDE THE MFC

1. Remove the Jam Clear Cover located in the back of the machine..
Squeeze the plastic tabs located on the right and left side of the cover
and pull the cover off.

2. Remove any paper you can see jammed in the machine. If you cannot
remove the jammed paper from the back of the unit follow the in
structions listed below for reinserting the cover and then continue to Step 4.

3. Re-insert the Jam Clear Cover. The top of the cover has a slotted
opening in the center approximately 1/4 inch wide. Hold the cover by the
plastic tabs located in the front of the cover on the right and left side and insert the cover into the opening until it securely
clicks intoplace (both sides).

4. Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the
cover until it locks into place.

5. Remove the jammed paper. If the paper is jammed underneath the print
head, unplug the machine from the AC power outlet. Gently move the
printhead to the far right side of the machine (the "home" position) and
then remove the jammed paper.

6. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock and then gently push the
scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

To test print the Help List by pressing Menu/Set, 6 (Print Reports), 1
(Help List) and then Black Start. The Help list should begin printing.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Will not shred will go in Rev


I just fixed a similar issue. My AS702MX shredder fell off my desk while I was emptying the basket. When I tried to use it after that it only ran in reverse, not in auto/forward (it was not jammed). This meant that the motor was still working. Since this shredder is so old, no longer under warranty, and not working anyway, I decided to open it up. I unscrewed the 5 screws on the bottom (that's all), then the plastic covering opened up. While looking at the shredder from the top (without the plastic cover) you will see a small black plastic trigger mechanism in the middle (this is what the paper hits to start the shred) this piece will push a copper filament onto the motor to complete the "auto" circuit. Well the fall had caused the plastic trigger to dislodge on one side... I popped it back into place and closed it up, and its working fine now. It was really simple to fix.

The problem is that the ridiculously cheap little plastic piece on the door hinge that is supposed to trip the switch that tells the printer that the door is open is either a) broken off or b) no longer aligned so that it pushes the switch all the way. I solved the problem by removing the top cover and gluing the switch open with super glue.

To open the cover, find yourself a small, flat piece of metal (or stiff plastic) about 1/2" wide and a few millimeters thick. (A very flat-bladed screwdriver will do, but I made myself one out of the non-sharp side of a straight-edge razor blade.) Push this into the 5 slots marked with an arrow around the sides and back of the printer (they're toward the bottom of the sides.) Pry up on the cover at the back and then pull straight up on the front. There are two flat vertical pieces that slide into slots at the front that have to come up - they were tough to make come loose, just try not to break them off.

Pick up the electronic control panel that is on the front right of the printer. (You might have to remove the silver piece of plastic at the right front corner. It pulls straight up to remove.) The switch is the little black plastic piece on the left side of the electronic control panel. Push it to the "open" position (opposite the resting position) and glue it in place. Reassemble your printer and voila! no more annoying "door closed" message!

Mfc-7220 Back Cover Open


This one made me crazy, but I finally figured it out. Turn the machine around so that you are facing the back. Open the back cover. Pull down the second smaller roller cover inside the machine. If you look closely at the second smaller cover, on the right hand side (closer the the inside of the machine), is a very thin round piece of plastic that is only half the length of the smaller cover. There are 2 thin plastic tabs attached to either end of this round piece of plastic. Gently shift this over so that the 2 plastic tabs can now go into the space provided for them. I had to move mine over only 1/4 inch.

Soldering 'Card Cover Open' Switch Closed


I had the same problem after a little plastic trigger thing fell out of the hole above where it says push to eject. After poking around for a while I took the camera apart (remove 7 screws) which made it much easier to see, with a magnifying glass and lamp, what the problem was. A damaged wire that needed to be connected to something. Only the very end of the wire was visible, inside a small white plastic box thing. The plastic box thing eventually fell apart with my attempts to put in bits of wire of varying shapes. When it came loose I was left with a short stiff bit of wire. I took a strand of copper wire (from an old piece of electrical wire), twisted it so I had a small loop at one end, looped it over the end of the stiff bit of wire, and then curved the rest of the wire (about 3 - 4 cm long) so it was resting on a silver piece of metal just below where the white plastic box had been. Put the cover back on and the camera worked. Needless to say, it won't let me know if I've left the cover off, but then it won't work unless the cover is on, so it doesn't seem to matter. Saved about $100.

on the above image you can see how I solved this problem. I used the way discribed in solution #2. I first broke off the little box and then added the little copper wire contacting the piece of iron at its left. Now my camera works again.
