Is this letter legit? That $32,000 worht of UPS uniforms have been purchased recently on ebay


This is another one of the false rumors that goes around from time to time, usually around the 9/11 anniversary dates or whenever there is a major attack or threat. This rumor, exactly as you state, surface in 2003. See the link below to SNOPES.COM, a website that monitors, vets, and debunks online myths.

Ready to stitch embroidery letters but nothing happens. The start/stop button and the number 10 design on the machine blinks. What is wrong?


Make sure the machine is on a solid, level surface. Also, it may not work if you don't have the correct foot on the machine.

WHEN TYPING A HALF SPACE IS SKIPPED OCCASIONALLY AND WILL NOT CORRECT THE LETTER TYPED, IS THE LETTER WHEEL REPLACABLE?


To answer your question yes the print wheel can be changed, BUT that is not your problem. The machine needs to be reset or the reset tab needs adjusting.


Background;

When you turn on the machine the print head moves to the right side, the print wheel spins, and the ribbon jumps up and down, that is the machine resetting its self.


I would

  1. Power it off and then turn it back on and test to again.
  2. If it's still typing the wrong or unreadable letters then turn off the power open the lid. On the bottom of the case there is a metal frame on the right side of the frame you will see a small metal tab pointing towards the print head.
    1. (When the machine resets its self, it uses that tab as a reference.)
  3. That tab is easily bent which causes the reset to be wrong. Most people can bend it by hand, DON'T use a pliers! The tab can break off completely. It doesn

Hello i have a lexmark t630 and when it prints out of tray 2 it says change tray two and beeps. It will work normal if you hit the select button. What could it be?


the printer is telling you that the tray is reporting the wrong size paper. print the network menu from tray 2 if it prints out smaller than the page it will be reporting smaller than letter. if the bottom line of the outline is missing its reporting legal size paper. if you are running lettersize paper in the tray check on the left side of the tray half way down the drawer you will see a plastic snap in plate with 3 fingers the bottom 2 should be sticking out for letter size paper. you only have to be one of the small adjust teeth off to make the third finger stick out and report the wrong size paper this is a very common issue. look at the metal fingers that stick out of the frame of the options tray to make sure they are uniform and straight. if the fingers are set right and not damaged then the logic board in the tray assembly will have to be replaced

The bottom of some of the capital letters is not printing correctly.


The letters on the Daisywheel have slightly curved faces to match the curvature of the paper around the platen and the hammer will contact the letters and apply pressure to the top, bottom left and right depending on where it is adjusted. Test the machine by typing Capital MWMWMW and also /////// along with the rest of the alphabet including gggyyyqqqppp. The solution may be as simple as replacing the Daisywheel (may be worn from use). If all of the letters strike more heavily on the top than the bottom, the hammer may be adjusted closer to the paper which will apply more pressure to the bottoms of the letters. Also the face of the hammer could be worn and need replacement. If the Daisywheel is in good shape, you might try adjusteing the hammer position, but it can be tricky to get perfect.

Flash problem with my Nikon Coolpix 8700


Send the camera in to Nikon for a replacement and write a nasty letter. I have the same problem and that's what I did. This is a wide-spread problem. Then once they send you a replacement (that works), quickly sell it on E-bay and buy yourself something that works!

When color printing, looks blurred, but not.


You need to align the cartriges. If you have the HP software installed on your machine, you can just open that and click on the align button. If not here is the link to download the software:

Just select your operating system and then download the North America/Western Europe full software solution under software. This should allow you to align your cartiges. Just follow the instructions when aligning. Hope this helps you out!
