UMAX Mirage II Scanner

I can't seem to get the button to press down in order to turn it on? It originally was jammed in the down position, and on all the time. It seems as though it is a spring loaded button mechanism with some kind of resistance? This is not a "normal" on off switch, that would be normal?  I'd love to thank the GENIUS who designed this. Now it won't turn on at all. Has anyone out there experience this?

I have this scanner.... I had to take the scanner apart(take the cover off) very simple to do. This is a very simple fix. Obvious fix. You will see when you open it where the switch is. Mine was not making contact. You might be stuck with it in the on position once you fix it.

Pc-8500 how to calibrate touch screen


1. Turn on the power switch while holding down the start/stop button, backtack button, and

NP button simultaneously.

2. While holding down the start button, press the + positions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the screen in

order. If the buzzer sounds once when 5 is pressed, the position is okay. If the buzzer

sounds several times, the position is erroneous; therefore, adjust again. (When pressing

the screen, use a pencil (or match) with a round tip.)

3. Turn on the power again, and confirm that the screen display and touch panel positions

LG LCD '42LG6' TV Remote control seems to be jammed - the TV button on the remote is lit up and won't turn off - now I can't seem to do anything - The actual TV can be turned on and off and we can change...

This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls.

Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.

Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!

Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to
each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)

Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.

Step 5- Try the remote.

Special Note:

If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote.
If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the set.

My 94 ford probe is not turning on the fuel pump shut off switch in the back has been pressed it seems as though the button wont come back up and i cant figure out how to reset the button

If the button is down, that's the on position, if you tap on it with the end of a screw driver, you will hear a spring like noise, might have to do it a few time's, and the button will come up, that's the off position, with button down, check for voltage at both wire's, one will always have voltage, and the other only when button is down, if you don't have voltage at both wire's with button down, bad switch.

Canon printer error 5100

5100 seems to be a Carriage Home Position Error. Clean the plastic strip that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated. Then load the tray with the blank papers.

Then reset the Printer: Following are the steps:

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

This should work. If not, install the Driver and Software from the Installation CD provided with the Printer.

You can also download the Driver from the following link:

Select the Operating System installed to download the compatible Driver.

Epson RX595 says "Error-paper jam" but no paper in printer!!!

I got my printer to work (finally! #$^%$%) by moving the ink carriage back and forth a bit gently and then I sprayed a small amount of WD40 on a lint free small cloth and wiped the silver bar inside with it. I slid the carriage slowly from one side to the left and it seemed to stick less. I thought my printer was broken so I figured it couldn't do any more harm and lo and behold it worked! My printer went back to the normal screen after turning it back on and I am finishing the print job that I never thought would happen. YAY!

You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus before you press the rest of the way. This eliminates "shutter lag".

Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!
