SOURCE: new cartridge installed,screen says out of ink,

Hi there reset the printer and try. If you face same problem then Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Have you tried cleaning the ctd sensor? I had this same problem, and using a dry cotton swab over the ctd sensor (located on the inside of the front panel) solved the problem for me.

P-reg 96 escort, my battery is dead after only a few hours however when the car is running (after jump starting it) the immobilisor light comes on for about a minute, then starts to flash every 3 seconds....

Bad Alternator.
After Starting or Jumping your vehicle: Remove the Negative Cable from the Battery.
If the Engine dies or runs really rough it is a bad Alternator.
The Battery Starts the Engine and runs nominal operations. The Alternator runs the Engine after it is Started by the Battery.
If the Engine does not die or runs really rough after removing the Negative Cable, then you have a malfunctioning Battery.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

I have just had a new batt and altenator fitted to my 1.8 escort van and the batt keeps draining

It is highly likely that you have a drain.
  1. Check and make sure that the glove box is shutting off the light inside the glove box when you shut the door.
  2. Check and make sure the dome light is set on door or shuts off.
  3. If you have a test light and someone to help, you can check for a drain.
  4. Remove the negative battery terminal and place the test light between the terminal and battery post. If it lights up you have a drain.
  5. With a assistant to watch the test light, go to the fuse panel and start pulling a fuse out one at a time and then replacing, at the same time with the assistant watching to see if the test light goes out.
  6. When the test light goes out you have found you drain.

Check the battery clamps are tight and good contact, Maybe the battery needs charging, check the fuses.

2000 ford escort want start. checked fuses and battery . try to turn over but want what can i check. it was running went in house and came back out would not start


Get a jump start, with good set of leads.

If no joy , follow the Positive lead from the battery to the starter motor, and give it a tap with a small hammer or big spanner, while someone turns the ignition key.

Good Luck !

Remember to give me a FixYa rating....Thanks...John.

Brand new 08 Ford Sport Trac (2 hr old) - won't start

Sounds like the battery may be bad. You could remove it and take it to a mechanic or parts store and have them test it for you. Mechanic might charge you 15bucks or so. Most parts stores will test it for free and gladly sell you a new one.
