SOURCE: letters & numbers not printing correctly

The most common reason for this is something interfering with the printwheel. Turn off machine. Take out the ribbon, then pull back on the black lever to the right of the printhammer. This will tilt the printwheel towards you. Look to see if there is anything caught in the printwheel. Also check to see if the corr tape is installed properly. Corr. tape and ribbon should both be between the two metal fingers and the metal cardholder. Push the black lever forward and look to make sure the two metal fingers are not bent into the printwheel. If they are, simply push them forward and bend them so they don't. Re-install the ribbon, making sure it goes on the other side of the fingers. Turn machine back on and test machine. If it still doesn't work, you will need a trained technition to determine the problem.

My brother mfc-6490cw will not print any magenta colors. I have run it through the regular cleaning process with no success. What else can I do to fix this?


You need to do the Power Purge Option: It works like a charm on my 6490....

Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print

Takeing about 5 turns on the key before starter


If you hear a "clicking" sound when you hit the key, it is likely the starter solenoid. Sometimes they stick, especially if its cold where you live. Hitting the key numerous times will jar it enough so the car will start, sometimes. You'll likely need to replace the starter if this is the case.

My car radio doesnt have a remote and i want to unlock it how do i do it


you need a remote for this .
Common Kenwood Security Codes
Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
Entering Your Kenwood Security Code
If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.

The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote
To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.

To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.

Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.

The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:

5
5
Track Up
2
2
2
Track Up
2
Track Up
7
7
Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.

A Security Code Bug in some Kenwoods
There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.

In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.

MARGINS: Left margin space or tab to where you want margin set and depress the mar L key. Sometimes the key has to be depressed as you hit the code key. If you want to move carrige to the left, go to margin hit margin release and bk space to where you want. Same with the right margin only use th R margin key. Code key usually keys have second message are in green, yellow or red. Use code key with the small print on the key to activate that function.... Good luck
