Have an audi a4 quattro 2005 convertible problem is 3rd brake light will stop working and than work again. i also get dash warning when it goes out. will replacing brake switch fix this. also 2nd issue...


The brake light issue isn't likely the the brake switch (since it sounds like your other brake lights are working properly). It's likely a bulb in the third brake light. When the filaments get old they sometimes lose and regain contact as the car vibrates on the road. Change the bilbs and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, look for a bad wire connection around the third brake light. Also, have someone verify the third brake light isn't working from the back of the car when you see the alert, it could be a bad sensor.

What does the error message "out bin full" means


This error indicates that the sensor that detects when too much paper is stacked in the output bin to allow more paper to exit. This flag sometimes sticks and a quick check is to make sure that nothing has become jammed where the paper exits the printer. Most common cause is the flag getting jammed because someone has remove the paper the wrong way. I have never seen the actual sensor fail.

Hi There. I have Tally T2265 Serial Matrix Printer. It shows "Hardware Alarm & Check Ribbon Error" after printing 2 or 3 pages. Sometime it prints 7-8 pages and sometime it prints 2-3lines...


The check ribbon message on the 2265 indicates the printer is detecting problems with moving the print head. You have ruled out the ribbon as being the cause of the problem by using ribbons from another printer.
Before suspecting other components check the printer model, if the printer is a 2265+ check to ensure the correct ribbon is used. Note the ribbon for the 2265+ is different to the 2265 ribbon. The 2265+ has a ribbon sensor to detect the ribbon moving. If the printer is a 2265+ the part number for the ribbon should be 062471.

If the correct ribbon is used the problem could be the timing strip which could be dirty or warn. Try cleaning this and check for damage.
The problem can also be caused by a dirty or lubricated carriage shaft, the carriage shaft should be clean and dry running - Keep clean of any type of lubricant.
The problem can also be caused by the timing station on the carriage, the carriage motor.

Clp-510 constantly gives paper jam error, although none exists.


false error message / could be due to the dirty rollers or bac=d sensors on the printer. Sometime when printer does not get enough power it might give this erropr message .
Hence also try to change the power source.

Paper jam problem fixed after removing toner and removing paper, but also now getting auto showing as well and ready and the cartridge ink levels. Auto not their before and now not printing. No errors...


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever. Check the following video hope this helps you.

Error message= open door clear carriage jam and


I think the message is instructions, as in
(1) open door (2) clear carriage jam (3) press enter
So there is something internal to the printer that makes it think it has a carriage jam, piece of paper under a sensor, dirty or stuck sensor.
If you can't find it using a bright light, try canned air.

Scanner 5 Error Printer in shop but unable to get new parts


The solutions for this are posted elsewhere on this site, look for "Scanner Error 5". Basically, it's one of several things that can be cleaned or adjusted without having to replace the entire scanner head. If it does need parts they should return the printer to you until the parts are available. This error does not prevent you from printing. Even though the printer shows the error message and tells you to cycle the power, you don't need to. It will still print with this error. Find a repair shop with someone who knows what they are doing, or get a #10 Torx screw driver and fix it yourself.

Read the other thread. Could be dirty mirrors, dirty or crooked film sensor strip, or bad light bulb, all of which can be easily repaired.

ERR (990) or ERR (999) are both error messages which are displayed when a sensor does not work normally due to dirtiness. For example, either may be caused by a dirty maintenance unit or clogged ink nozzles. It may be possible to resolve the issue by cleaning the device
