    Hi!

    Thanks for your long answer.

    Maybe your answer was mixed up with another file, because the problem I wrote about concerned the Scanning Bar, there are no ink problems with my printer but the "unable to inti AF" message and a not properly working (jammed) scanning unit.

    The printer does not accept any inputs after the error code.

    Seems like I´ll have to open the device and see if the there are some problems with the rubber band that leads the scanner unit...

John,

the fixya message systems fools my email account since half a week. So, I m sorry, that I cant answer straight to your requests...

Now lets have a look at your prob:

First things first for brother ph:

Those cant be cleaned from outside! The cleaning procedure is alwasy from the inside by help of the original ink 
(which contains additives of special cleaning fluids). This is due to the very special technique of electro-piezo ph instead of bubblejets (canon system) which can be cleaned sometimes from outside.

Another fact is that due to the tube (capillaries) system its quite often possible that air bubbles have grown when transported from refilled carts to ph. This air bubbles prevent the nozzels to work well or itz seems to the user that the channel is clogged.

Some advice to generic ink:
do refill original carts only. This is because of several reasons (prevent staining, malfunction and more trouble).
Buy refill DYE-ink (universal ink from jettec or inktec work excellent) and some glycerol (85%- glycerin alc.) at the drugstore. Mix 2ml glycerol with 10ml of C/Y/M ink very well and refill the C/Y/M carts with that: drill a hole of 2mm into the top of the cart (e.g. O of brother brand name).
For bk mix 1.5ml glycerol with 15ml bk dye ink and shake very, very well before refilling the cart.

So here is what you can do to get rid of the clogging:
Plz use 4 new, full ORIGINAL brother carts (quite costly, I know)..
Place them in and make sure they are secured.
Press menu then start bk then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode.
press 7-6-4 then start bk copy.
machine will initialize the carts, by refreshing ink in tubes and ph, delete air bubbles and do some power cleaning.
when finished press 7-6-3 then start bk copy.
Machine will do an extra power purge.

when finished leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9.
Do a test print after machine comes up again.
If your lucky your generic ink hasnt destroyed the ph!
Otherwise you need a new mfc due to the fact, that a ph is very costly!

BTW: Be very carefully when clicking the ph cover back into position! Wachtch the upper leftside: dont break the small platic guide which leads the ph on the rail.


And...

to delete error A1 (scanner top open) simply make sure, that the top is in right position ;-) (If you have read out the error code from maintenance as an error: this is NO error! Its in info which have all brother printers when the scanner is opened the first time ;-)

    ya, you re right. Ive mix-it-up ;-)

    Did you check the flat cable being connected correctly to printers main board? If not, open the scanner as for changing carts. There is an "L" looking cover which you have to open to get to the flat cable. Check the cable if its seated well. Error should disappear.

Pls I have a sonystar projector tv model PV43F90, suddenly develop a fault of no light on the screen but if I use the remote control to either change channels or volume there is an indication at the front...


I had a look around for Sonystar with no direct luck save for a eu website which looks eastern european, I would myself seek advice from Audio, Visual and Satellite forums who may help identify it under another make/model as many items of recent times came to be made in ex soviet bloc countries because of cheaper labour costs. Philips had theirs selling cheaper models through large UK outlets (better not say who) and I have seen similar rebadged Bush and others that herald from that area.
Sorry unable to help you further, good luck........

Bought a Beko upright freezer TZDA504FS with no insructions, can you aend copy


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm so sorry but this forum does not normally, nor is in a position to, supply any type of manual (service or otherwise), parts list, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.

You have also posted to the washing machine forum- but I guess someone would reply to you with the same advice ;-0)

Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

How do I clean my Kenmore Elite self cleaning oven


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Although you have posted onto the WASHING MACHINE forum I think I can help! With ours there is a switch selection which indicates 'self clean'. All 'self clean' really does is run the oven at a very high temperature which burns the residue to cinder, which you then wipe out!

Anyway methinks you could do with a manual for your oven (this pre-typed advice said 'washer' of course!)- for now and probably later but sorry, FixYa cannot do that direct. Members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)

Samsung G2739N Microwave Oven...It seems power section is o.k. but control panel is totally defunct.Will you please give me the contact no. of the service centre in Cuttack or Bhubaneswar,Orissa.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You have actually posted to the WASHING MACHINE Forum but I think the following, pre-typed advice would be the same from the MICROWAVE OVEN Forum ;-0)
-----------------------------------------------
Sorry, this FixYa Washer Forum does not supply service centre numbers, engineers, spares or prices; it is just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.
You will either have to search in your local telephone directories OR stay on line and search for '(make) washer service' for instance or '(make) washer spares' and hope that you can find someone reasonably local.
Sorry again ;-0(

I need an instruction manual and can't find one online


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm so sorry but this forum is not able, nor in a position, to supply any type of manual, parts list, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)

My advice is to contact the manufacturer direct- if you have not already- at

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but you have posted your problem to the FixYa washing machine forum and FixYa does not represent any manufacturer, including Whirlpool, for any items ;-0(

Because your A/C is under the period of warantee you should be contacting your Whirlpool Service Centre, the number for which should be with your warantee. The Vendor/ Sales person really should have given you all of this information if he/she was doing his/her job efficiently!
Sorry but for items under guarantee/warranty we would always advise contacting the appropriate Service Centre.

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Plastic housing on c419 broken


Sorry that the parts list is in German, but at least you can look at the visual, see how they are put together and order the parts. Although this microphone has been discontinued, parts should still be available from AKG.

See the pdf file at the following link:

You will also find the email address and phone number of the American distributor. You can also visit akg's website at:
