If you are using cardstock you have to tell machine that you are using thick paper. Place cardstock in bypass select paper size then select thick 2 or thick 3 as paper type.

This increases trasfer charge ,increases fusing temperature ensuring image is bonded to card stock paper.
No more smudging

My brand new washing machine does the wash cycle but the water doesn't pump out when finish

Even though your washing machine is brand new, the pump could have been defective when installed at the factory. Your warranty should cover this.

Brand new mower cranks but won't turn over. Checked battery and spark plugs, all good. Where can I find an mage of the fuel pump to ensure it is installed correctly?

it is cranking but not running is the correct terms
there are several safety micro switches on the mower and all have to be in the correct positions to get it to run
seat -- you have to be in the seat
brake --you have to have your foot on the brake
blade drive --you have to have the drive in neutral
oil in the sump--- oil level switch is off if no oil in sump
There would have been an operators manual with the new machine so read it fully first as it not a case of get on and go

Why try to figure it out, if it is brand new just take it back for another one or read the manual and see if you are doing something wrong.

Repair lexmark printer x1270

Unfortunately if you don't use a ink jet on a regular basis the ink dries up in the print head and in most cases will not work again even if you soak the head in alcohol overnight. I have found that Lexmarks are the biggest printers with this problem. Note: a replacement head will likely cost more than a new printer so this time get a HP printer mainly because when you change the ink cartridge you are also changing the print jets, the ink is a bit more money but in your usage of printers it may be your best bet.

If it's brand new send it back to the store. It seems to be a faulty item, which would be covered under the manufacturer's warranty/

I'm trying to print wedding invitations on my Canon MP460. I'm using a cardstock thickness of paper and have set the ink levels for "Other Photo Paper" on my Mac. The paper has been going through...

Sounds like the ink isn't having time to dry and is rubbing along paper.

Paper may be too thick. If it prints OK on normal paper (test first) but not on thick card, then it doesn't support thick paper settings.

Every time I put a new game it's unreadable and doesn't work, but when I put a old xbox 360 games they work fine , for example my Red Dead redemption, which I have had for almost a year works fine , but...

well, the only thing that i can think of is that your old games work because you may have backeed them up to your HDD. For whatever reason, it is not reading any of the discs, but you can play the old games because the machine knows the correct disc is in the drive, and plays it straight form the hard drive. Note that this answer is based on the assumption you back your games up; you may need a new DVD drive.

Your lite on has lost its mind and needs replacement.

Meanwhile a non rewritable disk cannot be erased. If not finalized it may not be read on another machine but the originating machine can read it.

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved

How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:

  • Make sure the printer platen is not dirty with ink.

    How to clean the machine's printer platen

    2. Lift the scanner cover until it locks securely in the open position.
    3. Clean the machine's printer platen(1) and the area around it, wiping off any scattered ink with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

    4. Close the scanner cover.

  • Make sure you are using Genuine Brother Innobella™ Ink.
