Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Printer head going one side and given beep


IF the jammed paper tears and you cannot remove the paper either from the paper output slot or from the transport unit, or the jammed paper remains inside the machine, remove the paper following the procedure below. 1. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. 2. Open the paper output cover. Remove the paper on the front tray if any.
Important:
    Do not touch the clear film (A). If the paper or your hands touch these parts and blot or scratch them, the machine can be damaged.

3. Make sure that the FINE cartridge holder does not hang over the paper. If the FINE cartridge holder hangs over the paper, move the FINE cartridge holder to the right edge or the left edge whichever is easier to remove the paper. When you move the FINE cartridge holder, hold the FINE cartridge holder and slide it slowly to the right edge or the left edge.
4. Hold the jammed paper with your hands.
If the edge of paper is jammed near the paper output slot, pull the edge of paper to the position where you can hold it with your hands.
5. Pull the paper slowly not to tear it, then pull the paper out.

6. Make sure that all the jammed paper is removed. If the paper is torn, a piece of paper may remain inside the machine. Check the following and remove the piece of paper if it remains.
7. Close the paper output cover, then reload the paper.
All print jobs in the queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.

I tried to change the position of the zipper foot and ended up breaking the needle and now the bobbin thread keeps snapping when I try to sew. What should I do to fix this problem?


There could be a couple of general reasons for this to happen.
First, the tension in the bobbin holder could have tightened when you were trying to fix the needle. I don't explain them, I just know strange things happen when you try to fix one thing.
Secondly, I can't tell how old your machine it, but I know that the mechanism that holds the bobbin holder can become jammed and the thread wound around it. That too will cause the bobbin to not feed properly. You need to be sure the area around the bobbin holder is clear of all threads.
How did you try to change the position of the zipper foot? Did you just change the needle position and move the foot to the other side or did you do something else? I'd need to have more information to tell you anything more specific.

JVC12 DISC CHANGER CH-X550 jammed


I would pull off cover, unscrew and remove top carriage of tray and remove your disc. While your at it you should take cotton swab and dip it in rubbing alcohol and clean the laser lens. Then reinstall carriage and top cover and try using it again.
