Lines on the left margin

The solution that was posted did not work for this is there another solution? I have noticed that there are no lines when I use the glass and not the feeder.

No the solution that was offered was in my many years of experence is correct, if it works OK from printing on glass it leavez no other option, I agree it has to be a mark (can be small or seeminly clear) on the scan glass slit (also clean white area above slit on lid) or rarely it is a image from the paper edge being misaligned

The only other thing that runs a minor chance is if you are using creased or thin paper.

Try also increasing lamp brightness via key pad and see if lines vanish when using a lighter density setting,

I fix these under warranty and if a proper clean didn't fix I'd change complete scanner

How to reset nokia mobiles life timer to ''0''

Nokia life timer is a counter that keeps track of the Total call time of your phone. It will show how much the phone has been used, and it?s the best thing to check if you?re planning to buy a used Nokia Mobile.
To see the Total Call Time or the life timer counter, On the standby screen type the following code *#92702689# (Easy way to remember this is ? *#war0anty#). And it will pop up a message that shows the life timer in hours and minutes.

Here is a detailed procedure to make this life timer zero.

The following files are required to reset the life timer:
  1. Nemesis service suite link: Download from Here
  2. file: Download Here
1. Download and Extract the file, and Download Nemesis Service Suite.

2. Install Nemesis Service Suite on your Computer, It won?t take much time.(select the first option)

3. Install Nokia Cable Drivers (No need to install, if you have Nokia PC Suite already installed)

4. Connect The Phone in ?PC Suite? Mode to the PC

5. Open Nemesis Service Software

6. Click on ?Scan for new Device? Button on Top right Corner 

7. It Will take a few seconds to scan, and it will load up the software interface after communicating with the Phone.

8. Click the ?Phone Info? Button.

9. On the Bottom, Select and open the ?Permanent Memory? Tab, which is next to the Fbus info.

10. Click the ?Write? button on Below right, and open the Extracted file on your PC. 

11. After the file is opened , it will immediately start writing it to the Phone?s EEPROM Area.

12. The Procedure will end when the progress bar reaches 20%. This is normal , and on the bottom right side, it will display its done.

13. Unplug the Phone, and Restart it.

14. After boot up, Check the life timer .

Note: This method has been tested on following devices: Nokia 6630, 6670, 6680, 5500 sport, 5700XM, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, N70, N72, N73,N76, E50, E51, E61i, E65, N80, N91, N95, N95 8GB, 5800XM Mobile devices. If you want to try it on other S60v3 or S60v5 mobiles, do it at your own risk.

  • Power Failure During Writing will cause damage to the Phone, And there is a chance that it might brick the phone as well.
  • Loose, worn out Data Cables Might fail the Writing process, and there are chances of damage to the EEPROM area of the phone.
  • Do not attempt this with phones that are not included in the confirmed list.

I am a teacher. We have Dell computers with windows 7 on them. Recently our school district downloaded Microsoft Office 10. Since the new microsoft office, my xerox phaser 8500 is printing strange. ...

Hi fsaltzman,

You need to check the margin settings in the print preview option, make sure you decrease the margins that are set by default and try printing a test page , this should work fine.

On the File menu, you need to click Page Setup, and then click the Margins tab.
Here you can adjust the margins as per your convenience.

To View page margins :-
  1. You need to go on the Tools menu, select Options, and then select the View tab.
  2. Under Print and Web Layout options, select the Text boundaries check box.

The page margins appear in your document as dotted lines.

You can use these dotted lines to correct your margins so that your student's assignments are not cut off and there is no large margin as you have mentioned in your question.

You can view page margins in either Print Layout or Web Layout view only, and they do not appear on the printed page.

Hope this helps

Lexmark T614 horizontal lines on right the left margins

This sounds like a cartridge problem if you have changed the cartridge and the problem persists I would say it is the positive charge roller inside the printer. If you open the cartridge door and remove the cartridge with the cartridge out starting closing the door and you will see this roller moving down from the top inside of the printer. do not touch this without a glove or lint free cloth. not hard job to change if you can get one in your area if not we have them available.

Hi ,My Hp5000 printer started out of the blue printing continuous lines down the left margin .Sometimes its seven lines & now 2 to 3 lines.How can I stop this & what caused it ? I'm needing to...

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the posting in FixYa.

If only the blue color is not shown after printing may be the Color Catridge having problem or may be getting empty.

Try after inserting a new Catridge. Otherwise clean the roller of the printer may be they get struck with the ink.

Margin Release

Try holding down on the MR (margin release) key and turn on. Machine will print a few lines with all the letters. Turn off and then on and try. Also make sure someone has not switched the key tops for left marging and right margin, I have seen this "joke" played on people. Can you set either margins?

Horizontal lines down left margin

Sounds like it's a transfer belt and not a drum you are refering too. Each toner cartridge mose likely has a drum built into it. If the lines are only in one color it may be that toner that is bad. But most likely it's the transfer belt, often called an ITU (Image Transfer Unit) or ETB (Electrostatic Transfer Belt). They sometimes get contaminated with dust, oils from fingers, etc... and can't be cleaned, would need to be replaced.
