Hello, David.

Even though you have performed the hard reset procedure, give this a try:

1. Before pulling the power connector, depress and hold the # and the 6 and them hold down from here on;

2. Pull the power plug, Count to 30 before proceeding, with # and 6 still depressed;

3. Reinsert the power plug with # AND 6 still held down until machine powers down, about 30 more seconds or so.

4. Machine eventually resets (turns off). Please note:. ALL settings have been erased including fax and wireless, so you need to set them up at the end, below. OK to release # and 6 now.

5. Press power button. Will come up quickly to the do-not-unplug-power warning, hit OK. Machine will now go through 2 minutes of initialization.

6. If you use wireless, do the wireless setup from NETWORK menu and print the network report which confirms connection as well as that it can print.

7. Set up FAX if needed.

Hope this helps.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

How to reset a NAD L54 DVD reciever?


This is the technical solution, you have to open the unit:
Locate IC33 and connect pin 6 to ground, connect power, and then remove the ground connection at pin 6.
The unit will then boot up in factory default.

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.

Photosmart C6180 All in one printer will not start although live


Strange because I have the same issue, and I've had this printer for over 3 years but the problem just started about a month ago.
I reset the printer by: 1) Unplug power to the printer 2) Hold #6 on the keyboard 3) Plug power cord back in while holding #6 Eventually (10 seconds?) the printer will shut down. Once it does, release #6 and power up the printer again.
Warning: This reset all the configuration settings.
This works for me, but there is still an issue because I have to repeat this every time I turn off/on the printer.

Problem booting into Windows.


Hi,
This could be a hard drive problem. The hard drive is looking for the boot sector on it, but the boot sector is broken. Computer shuts down and tries again but your hard drive can't find the boot sector so it shuts down tries again etc.

Cleaning your appliance may very well take care of your problem. But if not make sure the drivers and the software have been installed. If they appear to be installed then uninstall them and restart your computer and reinstall them. If you have the same problem then take to a qualified service center.
