Well, if the ribbon conductor is broken, cracked, or otherwise messed up, i dont think there is anything you can do. however, i think it runs (fold it along the old crease lines) under the disk drive and to the mainboard of the ps2.if you can find the ribbon connector that it hooked to, it *should* be a piece of cake as long as you fold it back the way it was folded. if you are still having trouble, update the question with specifics and i will do my best to help you.

Printing problem hp D7160 error 0xc18a0001 please help


Hi,problem can be solved .Please check out this link for the Ink System Failure problem.

fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/39471

These are from the link above:

Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and then turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate.

Our HP 3310 was having the same ink system failure. Tried everything I could find, and had just about given up when I found this forum. I didn't quite get the reset right the first time, but on the second try it worked. After holding down OK, Cancel, Black and Color buttons while turning it off, I turned it back on, it turned itself off and I turned it back on again, it started off doing the calibration and it took about 5 minutes, but when it was finished I had a working printer again.

I have a IBM Model 5651 Memory Typewriter (Selectric II carriage), and I cannot make the ribbon advance while typing. If I turn the ribbon it will type until the ‘ink’ runs out. It’s just not advancing. ...


If this takes a selectric II ribbon the Spiked driver may be gummed up. Remove the ribbon,
find the latch that holds the ribbon mech. open, release it the ribbon drive should swing freely to the right, if not spray some WD40 on the pivot point, above and below the arm then work it back and forth it should free up.

LG VX5300 Flip Phone broke in half.


Hello,

Your phone can work again, all you need to do is to get the flexi cable and fix it back in place.

It is not expensive.

It is about $15.

To fix this, these are the processes to follow;
  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Turn your phone over so the battery cover is facing you. Remove the battery cover and battery.
  3. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers and unscrew the aerial.
  4. Remove the 6 screws,
  5. Next remove the 2 rubber stoppers & screws above the main screen,
  6. Prise the back part away from the rest of the phone by running your fingernail between where the two parts meet,
  7. Unclip the ribbon,
  8. After removing the ribbon cable, carefully lift the metal part that is beneath the phone. Another ribbon will be attached which should be carefully removed.
  9. Take the circuit board & keypad out and you'll be left with what's below it.
  10. Next remove the top part of the phone by pushing the housing in whilst pulling the hinge, which the top part is attached via, away from the phone. This is the hardest part and you'll need to bend and manipulate the housing the get the hinge out. Be firm but be careful so you don't snap the housing.

PS 2 new and old games keep freezing


It needs a new laser... it's a pretty common issue with older PS2s. The lasers simply eventually wear out after time. You can get a new laser for the older PS2s at the following website:

Original playstation 2- 8 years old- wont read discs.


It's a laser issue. 8 years is a long time to get out of your PS2! A lot of people's PS2s start failing within 2 or 3 years. The lasers are pretty unreliable on the PS2, especially if you use it as a DVD player. The following website sells lasers for the older PS2s and also performs repairs. However, it's a bit expensive. More than half of what you can buy a Slim PS2 for new.

I would strongly suggest, however, that you stay away from used or refurbished PS2s for the same reason! You have no idea how much life the laser has left. Either go with a brand new [not refurbished] laser in your PS2 or buy a brand new [not used, not refurbished] Playstation 2.

Toshiba screen goes blank when it is opened too far


Sounds like a problem with the ribbon for the screen being either having a loose connection or getting nipped. Pretty common on laptops because the ribbon runs along by the hinges on the base and then up to the screen.

Hopefully you will be able to access the ribbon on your model by removing the plastic bezel which lies just above the keyboard. The ribbons I have seen are about 1/2 inch wide and as I said connect on the base and the screen. The connection just pushes in. If its loose at the connection on the base then obviously push the connection fully home. If it's getting nipped then reseat it so that it does not get caught. ***NOTE*** a problem could arise if the ribbon has actually been damaged from being nipped - opening the laptop could cause it more damage and then you could lose the screen until you replace with a new ribbon. These can normally be purchased on places like Ebay and don't cost an arm and a leg.

If this helps, I'd appreciate feedback so other people can use this as a solution. Thanks
