Some times there is a little piece of paper stuck in there.

I don't know what make/model of printer you have but this ussually works.

Unplug the printer, switch the paper lever to the envelope setting, take a strip (about an inch wide should work) of card stock and run it up (the opposite direction that the paper runs) through the paper path, sliding it back and forth, it should dislodge anything that is stuck in there.

It is sort of like flossing the printer, but don't be too rough with it, you don't want any of those little parts to come off.

When you are done plug it back in and see if it works.

My acer AX 1200 continually tries to start up and then shuts down. Is this the power supply?

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer

hope this helps

My printer keeps giving a paper jam error no paper is jammmed

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart,

HP Pavillion won't turn on.

Hmm, did the CA damage any part of it? Sounds silly I know.
And is the power in the, Optical Disk Drive, HDD, Graphics Card and of course on the Motherboard?
Keep it on for about 40 minutes monitoring the heat ever so often even though there is nothing on the Monitor.
By the 40 Minutes it should be mid temp - Hot.
Best of Luck. Tom.

Printer says paper jam, but no paper in there

use a flash light check all paper path, specially the area around the toner. all you need is a small piece or other (dust). There is a micro switch that detect the paper travel. so if anything preventing the switch to open, you will get error message.
after that, open the toner door, reseat the toner and close the door. the pirnter should return to normal.

Regarding battery problem/battery not charging

Hi Jasbir, Laptop batteries only have a set life span and if your battery does not hold charge the only solution is topurchase another battery. You will find the cheapest way to do this is to search the computer section of ebay [laptop assessories ]
and find the battery for your laptop model.
