The belt goes around the drum and onto the motor pulley. No need to loosen anything. Put tension on the belt and fit it onto the motor pulley by gently turning the motor and pushing the belt onto the pulley at the same time.

There is an interlock that prevents the shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be jammed in the interlock or the bin may not be closing the interlock as it is slid in place.

After downloading SD to computer i replace disk into camera and camera screen noe reads "card locked" this has never happened before and i don't know how to fix it

There are a few reasons for this and the most common is that you accidentaly slid the lock switch on the card. Look carefully for it and slide it back the opposite direction

the other major cause would mean that card was corrupted by the computer from either removing it before all transfers were complete or in some more extreme cases a virus can also lock some cards.
If it is not the switch then suggest get a new card

I'm trying to figure out how to load #10 envelopes to print.

Generally, since you have not mentioned what printer you are using, remove all the paper.

Slid the enveople into the bottom of the paper tray, face side down (flap up) and the flap to the left. Push the envelope to the right side of the tray and as far forward until it stops.. On the left side, you may have a rail that will slid to the right against the envelope.

or The paper tray may have a slot on the right near the back. Slid the envelope into that slot, flap up and to the left, as far as it will go.

Once the envelope is put in place, run the software that you use to print.

Good luck!

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can tell me in detail how to remove the casing of a hotpoint wd860 ultima so I can access the belt pulleys to replace the belt. Totally stumped and have hurt my finger this...

jon you would have to remove the drum and you don't want to go to that hassle to fit a belt.
try this out
  1. remove lid
  2. remove back inspection panel
  3. from top of machine fit belt around motor pulley
  4. half fit belt to the drum pulley
  5. Here's the tip, get a cable tie and secure belt to drum pulley, may need to use 2 ties
  6. now slowley rotate drum and belt should slip straight on
when your not used doing this sometimes a good idea to remove the top weight, 3 13mm bolts. this will give you more room.

hope this helps
