HP 1215 Cleaning

I have a HP 1215 that I have used for years. It still works great but squeaks so loud. I've cleaned everything I can reach. Is there something that needs oiled?

Yes, not to be rude, but obviously it needs lubrication if it squeaks (some parts may also be worn out); disassembly of such a printer may require special tools (my similar HP does) and my advice is that you seek pro help with it (and while they're at it, you should probably get a thorough cleaning and general overhaul incl. replacement of any rubber parts that cannot be cleaned with rubber cleaner). Years of service? Testament to HP printer quality, but it may have reached the end of its usable life and there are some decent printers out there for cheap. Nice if you can afford to buy American again--if you do, expect a long-lived replacement.

After using self cleaning ,the door of the oven will not unlock

Yes Virginia... that is DESIGNED to <not> work that way.

The oven remains locked SAFETY REASONS... The temperatures reached during the cleaning process can damage surrounding finishes... easily burn you and ruin the appliance knobs.

It is best to PRECISELY follow the manufactures instructions...

Failing that... it is a great idea not to even change the clean SETTINGS until ALL the fans & blowers have completely shut down.

When EVERYTHING is completely cool... you reconfigure the oven for regular use... and the {cleaning} latch will release,

Hope that is <at least> informative... (pretty sure it wasn't helpful).

Squeaky noise

You clean the printer by running cleaning pages. You can find "Cleaning Page" in your printers menus. As for the "squeaky noise", I have found it is the worst with "recycled" toner and toner kits. Finding the cause of the squeak is a very difficult thing to do. You will need to remove the front, back and sides of your printer and check all the nooks and crannies for the squeaky wheel. I have been able to remove the squeak by installing a manufacturer original toner. "Cleaning" the rollers usually has nothing to do with the squeak.

My camaro squeaks really loud whenever i turn the steering the wheel left or right whether I'm moving or sitting still. It sounds like it's coming from both sides of the front end.

tie rod ends dry? this kind of thing is easily found if one person moves the wheel and the other listens and/or feels the different front end components. loud squeaks are generally accompanied by vibration which is hard to miss if you get down close to it.

Won't Print Color Ink

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

I have an hp psc 1215 all-in-one. My black cartridge won't print. It recognises if I swap it out for a new one, and goes through all the motions. It registers the correct ink levels. The cradle...

The problem is not with the ink-cartridges. You've proved that, by swapping BLACK cartridges.

The problem is that the ink-jets that spray the BLACK ink onto the paper are clogged.
Thus, no BLACK ink reaches the paper.

Open the HP Printing Assistant, and open Utilities, and run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to try to unclog the print-head.

My HP Officejet 6500 wireless E709N makes a loud squeaking noise every time something is printed and is printing additional lines on the sheets of paper being printed?? Help!

Horizontal streaks across the page usually mean your cartridge is about to run out, or is at least dirty. Try cleaning the nozzles, though avoid doing this manually -- your printer should have a cleaning cycle.
The squeaking noise could be dust in your rollers. That can't really be fixed without major intervention that could throw something out of balance and result in many a paper jam. You can use a lint-free, static-free cloth to gently clean inside an unplugged printer, but it's generally not a great idea to mess around in there too much.

I would like to clean out the dust and repace an enormously loud fan in my zd8000 pavillion HP laptop. where can i find a guide how to open it up?

For cleaning the clogged cooler simply try to blow from outside-in with some air canister.
General instructions:
Big work if you are unfamiliar.
Remove the battery, all little covers and all the screws from underside, if the underside cower can not be removed, then maybe you must remove the motherboard. Try to remove the keyboard, keypad and everything from upper side until reach fan... Do not use brute force.
Remember the position of long screws, if any.Also remember the route of the cables.Mark the position of inner screws on board with some red marker, this helps a lot.
Use electrostatic protection (recommended).
If you remove any cooler, after cleaning you must use thermal conducting paste.
After removing the fan, if no other , try lubricating the fan rod (under the fan label) with a little thermally resistant grease.
God work !!!

How do I use an HP Photosmart 1215 printer with a new HP Pavilion a6700f PC running MS Vista operting system

Well, I'd say you are out of luck. If you follow the following link, you'll see that this printer does not have any Vista drivers:
This is one of the really neat features of Vista--it's great for the hardware industry, 'cause so much stuff is not supported.
An alternative is to Google something like "HP Photosmart 1215 Vista drivers." You may come up with some 3rd party drivers that will work.

Loud noise/paper tray not working

What error? Does it say paper jam and a number? Have you tried cleaning the rollers that pick up the paper? Use a cotton cloth with a little bit of WD40. Then a dry cloth to remove residue oil. Do not use alcohol. It will dry out the roller and make it slick.
