The foam goes across under the printhead and is only there to catch the excess ink when you print a borderless photo. You can print with it out as long as pieces arent caught in the exit rollers that you can push out with an index card.

The rubber material around the paper cone is falling apart,it's decaying. Can it be repaired or replaced?

I assume you speak of the loudspeaker or drive unit which is fitted with a thick gasket material around the edge of the cone where it is bonded to the outer flange of the speaker chassis.

The gasket material and the outer edge of the cone will be clamped when the speaker is mounted to the baffle and screwed down tightly.

The clamping force greatly reinforces the bonding of the cone to the speaker chassis.

The gasket material is important to provide an air-tight seal which is especially important when used in an infinite baffle enclosure.

With extreme care the gasket can be removed and replaced with fibreboard (the traditional material), closed cell foam or cushioned vinyl.

Water based adhesives must be used with care so wetting of the cardboard or paper cone is avoided. The finished gasket should be the same dimensions as the original so it doesn't restrict the travel of the cone and speech coil. A uniform thickness is also important so the chassis is not twisted or distorted when mounted to the baffle board.

It is possible to have a loudspeaker drive unit repaired or overhauled and it might even be possible to obtain spare parts. The process requires much experience. The cost of mass-produced drive units is so low professional repairs are uneconomic and so such a service is only suitable for special, high performance, high quality, hand-built units.

3) Open the paper output tray and then lift up the scanning unit cover until it locks into position.
CAUTION: The orange protective tape may prevent you from opening the paper output tray. If that is the case, please refer to the illustration in step 3 to ensure the white foam piece is removed along with the protective tape. skumar_sreen.gif

5) If the the white foam was not removed along with the orange protective tape, check for it on the right, inside the printer. a) With the printer powered off and unplugged, slide the print head carriage to the left. b) Looking inside the printer from the left, locate the white foam in front of the purge area. Note: It is recommended to use a thin latex glove as there may be ink mist on the white foam or surrounding print area. skumar_sreen_0.jpg
c) Cautiously remove the white foam with your hands. Be careful not to touch any other components in the printer.

6) After removing the packing material, look for and remove any other paper debris or foreign objects from the extreme left and right sides of the carriage area.

7) Close the scanning unit cover.

I am installing a Dometic Brisk Air A/C unit on my popup camper. The A/C unit came in a box with the black neoprene gashet glued around the base that goes around the hole in the roof. There are also some...

The grey ones I believe you are asking about are thinner than the black one, so when the black one is compressed when tightened, the grey ones just add a little support at each end. I'd leave them on, can't hurt.

Black does not print but there is no fault warning

this is caused by dried ink on the black print head. When the heads park on the wet ink pad on the right side of the printer for the night or when not in use, sometimes this gets clogged or dried. when the carrage is all the way to the left unplug the unit. this way you will have access to see if the pad is wet or not. a couple of Qtips and a small zip lock to place them in will tell you if it is wet. It just needs to be damp not very much. Depending on the age of the printer these pads may be totally soaked. If foam, you can take them out gently and rinse them in water until they are clear of ink. (most of them are actually grey or black foam) If it is a White pad, leave it alone this is a cleaner pad and will not come out, or may rip. If you are seeing allot of black it is becuase you either have cleaned the heads or all the colors have blended into black. A light mist of windex will moisten the heads when you then power up and let it go through the ritual of the back and forth sequence.and then power down. the heads will park on the now damp surface give it 30 minutes and try to print Black only. If you dont choose black only or grey scale then your only combining colors to make black. If this still doesnt work then there is a solution you can order, or send it in for service.

My 1995 chevysuberban has no speakers and would like to know how to wier the speakers in my car?

The car is not important .Connecting speakers to any unit is basically the same. there should be a color coded wire harness connected to your head unit. The speakers are as such: White & White with black stripe (Front Left) Grey & Grey with black stripe (Front Right) Green & Green with black stripe (Rear Left) Purple & Purple with black stripe (Rear Right) The Solid colors are (+) Positive and the Stripes are (-) Negative. Connecting any one of these incorrectly will result in phasing problems. Hope this helps. dreamsystems

Ive got a maxi cosi cabrio fix - i washed the headhugger/bottom support cushion that comes out (for when they are tiny) and the material has torn and the foam inner has come out - can i get a replacement...


It is normal for the headhugger to be attached to a peice of fabric lower down that contains the newborn foam cushion, this fabric is usually open so that the foam can be removed for washing.
If you want to purchase a new part, contact the link below, who will be able to assist.

I hope this helps.

The unit was blowing black/grey foam pieces on to the floor-pulled the cover & the only thing that looked obvious was a "filter" that sits horizontally in the unit..??? This is an older model-the fake...

Sounds like the filter is dry rotted!!! after a few years it is a good idea to replace the a/c filter,you can buy them at just about any department store and they are cut to fit!!

f-28 codes deal with a corona unit arching.

if its a f-28-1 its the charge corona on the drum unit. more than likely its a f-28-3 though which is a seperation corona arch. these models were notorious for the insulating material that transfers voltage from the machine, to the door then back to the corona would eventually break down and start casuing arching.

what to look for, open the right side door and halfway down you will see a black peice of plastic sticking out that is attached by to screws. this needs to come off, but to get this off you will also need to remove the door opening bar. a total of 4 screws and you can have the black plastic peice in your hand. once off flip it over and open the back cover up. you will see 2 grey peicesof insulating material, one will be burnt the other will be fine. from here on it is up to you as to how you fix it. using an insulating tape that is cut to the opeing is an appropiate fix but it must be able to withstand high voltages. put it all back together and it should work.
