Make sure the gear hed is engaged on both the outer shaft and drive shaft at both engine and cutting head end. Check the square drive section that is in the plactic moulding hasnt been pushed too far into the shaft meaning its not engaging properly.

The head on my Bolens BL110 weed eater is slipping

Check the drive shaft. Within the drive tube there is a tightly sprung drive shaft, check where this connects to the head of the cutting attachment, it could have a worn drive.

How do you keep the shaft from turning when working on it

If you're refering to working on the cutting head without the shaft turning then you should be able to lock the cutting head to remove it. There is a small hole in the top of the gear head that you need to put a small rod in to jam the head from turning.. this inturn will also stop the drive shaft from turning.

My printer is showing error as "hardware alarm +1308 +131 --- 000004+0381+1317" wat could be the problem

The hardware error indicated on your printer is indicating that the printer is encountering problems when moving the print head.

This error can be indicated if there is any thing which may be preventing print head movement, things you can check include;

The printer ribbon is not jammed and is located correctly in the printer,
You can also check to ensure there is no paper jam of loose paper which may prevent print head movement,
You can also check the carriage shaft to ensure it is free from paper dust or any other obstructions.
With the printer powered off, the print head should slide freely across the width of the printer, you can then see if there is any obstruction to the printhead

Hi, the printer seems to have a problem with the horizontal movement of the print head carriage. Turn of the printer and move the carriage by hand to check if there is an area where it can only be moved too hard. If yes, clean the carriage shaft from dirt, etc.

The head on the trimmer is stripped out and I couldn't get it off

measure the outside of the tube and any compatible head will clamp on the tube
all internal drive shaft and cables use a 1/4 square drive at the end which slips into the bevel drive gear in the head
normally straight shaft tubes are bigger in diameter than bent shafts
junk yards or dumps are a good place to get heads complete
