You should be referring to ASCII codes. What happened was that you might have cancelled a previous print job unexpectedly by pressing the stop button. Nevertheless, the solution is that you need to cancel all printing jobs first; make sure there is no remaining print jobs left. Then unplug the printer for like 5 minutes. And then try to power on the printer and start printing again. It is also advisable to restart your computer along with the printer.

Goodluck and kindly tell me if this worked.

Doesn't sound like your printer hardware. Try printing something other than your text document. If the page comes out clean/perfect then it means your printer is having a problem understanding your text document via print program translation. Otherwise try converting your text to pdf and print a sample page, if it works then again problem with software/printer translation.

I cant seem to get turn by turn street anouncement on my garmin 1310 is there something i need to do on my menu. many thanks

Press TOOLS ( the spanner symbol on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol)
Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
Press VOICE. Select a voice from an English speaking country that ends in TTS. The TTS letters stand for "Text to Speech" and indicates that this voice will name the streets. Some of the voices are more basic and are unable to.

If you don't have a TTS voice on the satnav you can download them. Install WEBUPDATER on your computer from
When it's installed connect your satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead and run the WEBUPDATER program. The program will look for updates to your satnav software. Install the updates and when it's finished it will look for optional updates includingn Voices. Select only English speaking voices with tts added to the end of the names and download them.

When the download is complete and you've disconnected your satnav from the computer you'll need to select a tts voice as described in the first paragraph above.

Can't change language to english. preference

Setting this up could be a little awkward because, one cannot understand most of the text. Your case seems to be even worse, because, your system seems to be set up to show few menu options. There should be an icon that turns on, more menu options. (It may look something like Toon mindr menu opties. Check for this menu opties thing or something like that). If you can find that click on it. That will open up more menu options. If this works look for an icon with flags. click on it. That will give you the option to change the language.

Hi I cannot get my text to print largher that 9. Nor can I highlight to change size. I have Photoshop Elements 6 bought recently. Thanks Cy

Although the text point only shows a maximum of 72. I read somewhere that you can type a larger number in the options bar. I typed in 300 as a trial and it worked first time. Something to do with the size of the immage and relevency.

Hp printer stopped printing with a "usb" error 237

The remedy is to reinstall the driver for your operating system which will be available at the mfr support website.

Also check the status of the USB on your PC by looking at the device manager.

Lo mismo con esta fu****ng motherboard

I don't know if you understand english, but when you turn on the computer does it show up in the list of devices?

If so, you have to partition it so that it will read the disc.
Right click on my computer (or computer in vista)
go to manage
click disk management
right click on the 500gb samsung hard drive
click create partition
click next on all of them
wait for it to complete
then your finished

Here is a crappy translation from google:
No sé si usted entiende Inglés, pero cuando se enciende la computadora lo hace aparecer en la lista de dispositivos?

Si es así, usted tiene a la partición de modo que leerá el disco.
Haga clic derecho en Mi PC (o PC en Vista)
Ir a la gestión de la
gestión de discos, haga clic en
haga clic derecho en el disco duro Samsung de 500GB
haga clic en Crear partición
haga clic en Siguiente en todas ellas
esperar a que se complete
entonces su acabado

How can i remove write protection on my flash disk

OK – after an hour or so of faffing around :knock: , I think that I have found a possible solution tongue.gif . The problem seems to be something to do with Microsoft’s SP2 dead.gif !
Here’s what worked for me (sorry for the Idiot’s Guide approach, but I used to :hotbounce hate it :hotbounce when I used forums and couldn’t understand what the technobabble meant!):

- Start > Run > type ‘regedit’ (without the speachmarks) > Enter
- Single-click on ‘My Computer’ > File > Export > save it to the Desktop (Always best to have a backup!!)
- Go to the following:
My ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlStorageDeviceP olicies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Double click on the string ‘WriteProtect’ and change the ‘Value Data’ box to ‘0’
- Then: File > Export > save somewhere useful as something like ‘StorageDevicePolicies001.reg’
- You also need to do this for the strings in any folders called ‘ControlSet***’ (* = any Digit, i.e. 001, 002) – for example: Everything is the same, just change ‘CurrentControlSet’ to ‘ControlSet***’
My ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ControlStorageDevicePolic ies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Save these to the same place as before as ‘StorageDevicePolicies00*’

The saves are in case it reverts at a later date, just double click (saying ‘yes’ to importing these to the registry) on all of the files and it will all work again!

I hope that solves your Problem, If so kindly accept it.
Thank You, Arjun.

Changing Language

I had the same problem with my Canon Smartbase MP730. Printer properties was in Portuguese, no matter how many times the driver was uninstalled and reinstalled.

By running Filemon from SysInternals I realized that when showing the printer properties files in the

C:\BJPrinter\CNMWINDOWS\Canon MP730 Printer\LanguageModules\0409\

folder were created. One of those files was CNMmhya.hlp. When clicking on it a Help-window with Portuguese text shows up - even though the code 0409 means English. This is a symptom of the problem. This file was copied from somewhere in the Windows folder.

To fix this annoying problem, the following worked for me:

-> Unplug the printer
-> Uninstall the driver
-> Rename the following folder with the portuguese language driver stuff which still remains, even after uninstallation of the driver:


(if you cannot rename it, reboot and try again). You should first check that there are indeed portuguese help-files in this folder. To do that, click on one of the .hlp files. If they are not your problem could be a different one, but it could also be that the files are stored nearby in the file system.

-> Reinstall the driver with the language of your choice. This time there won't be Portuguese files blocking proper installation of your new files.
-> Replug the printer to finish the driver installation

Now you should have finally gotten rid of the Portuguese (which may seem Spanish or Italian to some) text in Printer related windows.
