IIcx pressure pad under lid is failing, can it be replaced?

The foam pressure pad under the lid of my trusty IIcx is failing. The foam is decomposing. Can I get a new lid? Can I get a replacement pad with the shiny plastic surface? Can I buy the foam somewhere.

Any ideas welcome.

Thanks,

jp

The trunk has water inside and now the car will not start. Is there a drain plug?


some cars do have drain plugs. Sometimes the plug is painted the same color as the car or the interior of your trunk body. Lift the trunk carpet you may find a black rubber plug. After that is done check on your trunk seal for separation. Maybe the adhesive on the foam rubber has failed and is allowing water to seep in under the foam rubber or maybe there is a cut in the material or maybe your trunk lid is just a tad bent. Check the contour lines of your trunk lid with the trunk closed and search for any gaps of foam to rubber. If you order a new seal you can put it on yourself. It's easy! check out this video to learn How To Find Water Leaks In Your Trunk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tecuW9cB-Xk

Sticky i key


Sticky isn't a really good description but i'll guess that you mean that you have to press it hard.
Under each key is a foam pad that makes contact. The foam gets old and crumbles, the pads can be replaced but generally not by the user.

Waste ink absorber is full and printer will not print


I found this guide, the most important part is pressing the ON button while you plug your usb and power leads after cleaning

first unplug the power cord and then the usb cord.
When you are done doing that, take the printer to an area where you have working space.
Put it down on some newspaper.
Open the lid. (Normally, when you open the lid with printer on, the cartridges will slide over to the left of the machine, this is important to remember for part of the cleaning).
Now, with printer lid up , look down inside the printer. you will see some plastic running horizontal with the printer ribbon, (the area I am referring to is right under where the ink cartriges slide back and forth)on the floor of the printer.
If you take your finger and feel inside, you will find a very thin, narrow piece of foam in between the plastic strips. You can gently remove this foam and clean it with denatured alcohol and let it completely dry before replacing. You can also go in and clean the plastic area with a Qtip, because there will be a residue of ink all over this area.
Also, right under where the ink cartridges park when opening the lid when plugged in is another small piece of rubber pad that should be cleaned too.
Once you have done this, and this is important.. before, and during the replugging of the usb plug and the power cord, YOU MUST keep the "on key" pressed in. This is going to help reset your printer once it's plugged in.
So keep your on button pressed down and plug both cords in. ONCE that's done, let go of the power button.
The yellow light might come on again, that's okay, just turn off your printer, wait a few seconds and turn it back on. It should work fine. We did this because we had read about holding in the button for resetting. If you clean the ink pads in the future you must do that because it actually is resetting something in your printer. Mine works just fine. I will add that I went through a lot of ink cartridges to get to this point but it is pretty easy to clean if you just take your time, be patient and carefully remove the foam not to damage it. Good luck

How can I get the compatible toner in my c5100 to work? It keeps reading m sensor error.


It's not the Toner Cartridge. The Okidata C7350 has the same problems, replace the toner cartridge and it still says toner empty or sensor error.
In the hood inside the printer, each toner cartridge has a sensor arm. sensor arm has a magnetic pickup on it. That magnetic pickup causes the sensor arm to move up and down. It picks up on a beater bar in the toner cartridge. Lower the toner supply in the print cartridge faster the beater bar turns in the toner cartridge faster the magnetic sensor arm goes up and down. Detects when the toner is cartridge is low.

On the other end of those 4 sensor arms is a foam pad. The glue bleeds through the foam pad, causing the sensor arm sticks to the sensor, causing sensor problems.

You have to remove the top hood. open the top up, unscrew the top hood and pull the top hood cover off.

unplug the LED heads from under the hood, they plug into the sensor board. Remove the sensor board under the top hood to gain acess to the sensor arms. The sensor arms can be pryed out. The foam pads, clean them off, remove the foam pads and re-install the sensor arms. The sensor arms don't need the foam pads.

Little disassembly is required, make sure the printer is off before attempting.

I get a 6a00 error, the first time i start up my canon pixma mx850. I tried to move the printerhead manually and that works fine. But i still get this error everytime. When I look at the sliding mechanism...


if it's 6A00 then theres a problem with the cleaning unit where the printhead parks. Look for any paper scraps in that area,
the two foam pads that must cover/protect the heads when the cartridge is parked are jammed up, preventing the head cleaning squeegee from moving back and forth. Just to the right of these pads is a piece of blue plastic, part of the assembly holding the foam pads . very gentle downward pressure on this blue plastic frees the pads and the squeegee could move back and forth again. and will clear ur issue

there is a safety pin lodged under the far right side (home base). gently push the unit to the left to expose the imposter, and remove it

regards

Yes, first unplug the power chord and then the usb chord. When you are done doing that, take the printer to an area where you have a little working space. Put it down on some newspaper. Open the lid. (Normally, when you open the lid with printer on, the cartridges will slide over to the left of the machine, this is important to remember for part of the cleaning). Now, with printer lid up in the air, look down inside the printer. you will see some plastic running horizontal with the printer ribbon, (the area I am referring to is right under where the ink cartriges slide back and forth)on the floor of the printer. If you take your finger and feel inside, you will find a very thin, narrow piece of foam in between the plastic strips. You can gently remove this foam and clean it with denatured alcohol and let it completely dry before replacing. You can also go in and clean the plastic area with a Qtip, because there will be a residue of ink all over this area.

This is going to help reset your printer once it's plugged in. So keep your on button pressed down and plug both chords in. ONCE that's done, let go of the power button. It will go on and run through some of it's noise. The yellow light might come on again, that's okay, just turn off your printer, wait a few seconds and turn it back on. It should work fine. We did this because we had read about holding in the button for resetting. If you clean the ink pads in the future you must do that because it actually is resetting something in your printer.

Hello himsmyboy!

Sikna says

The ADF separation pad is the cause. To remove it lift the cover fully up then use a knife to get under the black tape tab at the top right of the large white foam pad. Pull the tape and the white foam pad loose but not completely - leave the bottom attached. Now you can see the ADF separation pad from below. Use a small screwdriver or spring hook to remove the spring and you will be able to wiggle the ADF separation pad out. First take a good look at how it fits in so you can put it back! The problem is caused by the small black foam pad under the white rubbery tape on the ADF pad assembly. I carefully removed the tape from the back edge to expose the compressed black foam pad. I then cut a matching size of 1/16" foam I had in my shop which was actually HP 98A doctor blade seal foam and just stuck it on top of the old compressed foam. (other similar foam should also work) Then I replaced the white rubbery tape and rubbed the edge down well. I then reinstalled the restored ADF pad and the spring which holds it. Last I just pressed the large white foam pad back into position - being sure to pull it with a slight tension as I pressed into place. This fixed the ADF feed and it worked like new again...
