Microtek Artix 120f Negative film scanner

I bought this machine about three years ago and I have had small problems ever since. But I usually solved them by reopening the programs. There are two separate programs with the machine: Silverfast and Microtek's Wizard's TX. Once I manage to get the machine running, it gives great scans. But now, I have a problem I can't solve, and Microtek's support is the worst. They allow that the machine is not running right but will not repair it. They offer a good deal on another scanner instead! The machine will not stop running. I re- download the programs but nothing. It just sits there and runs and it's not recognized by the computer. I'm looking for a company that repairs this type of scanner, anyone know of one??

I went to System, devise manager and then hardware. Found a problem with the fire wire connection.I checked the wire, it's six pin as recommended. So I have to assume it's a connection issue and not mechanical. It also has a scuzie 50-50 pin connection, might try that too if all else fails. Now I'm going into the Registry and un-installing all the microtek programs. I will then reinstall.. Then I will buy a single FW connection card and and as good a wire as possible and try isolating the connection so there is no conflict with another program. Then light a candle. If no go, it's a $1700.00 loss and my last Microtek purchase. The support from this company is beyond bad!!

My cordless black and decker bateries HPB18-OPE WILL NOT HOLD A CHARGE

These drills are cheaply made and are fairly cheap.
I asked the store where I bought mine and he said he would get me a new battery. He wanted thirty four dollars for the battery and I only paid forty bucks for the whole drill a year ago.
I learned something
I bought a Ryoby at 149 dollars and came with two batteries. I keep a battery plugged in all the time and switch them once every two or three weeks. I bought this one three years ago and it is working like it was three years ago. I just leave it plugged in all the time. The cheap B and D won't last very long.

Electrical problems

Are these factory OEM replacements? I once put three cheap aftermarket Kragen batteries in my Corvette in 6 months, bought a Delco and problem solved, that was years ago. Sounds like your problem is that the car sits to much, if it sits more a few weeks either hook up a float battery charger or disconnect the negative cable to the batt.

Just bought EM-200C and loaded water in reservoir< but when trying to run it - water doesn't come out - it seems it doesn't enter into the machine from reservoir - what is the problem?

iana, if possible take it back to the store and ask for your money back, buy a Breville instead. If your stuck with it here's the solution. I just returned this similar machine that we received as a gift one year ago for warranty, got a bran new machine Jan. 13 as replacement and it would not pump water. After three phone calls to warranty office in Ontario, the problem was solved by pressurizing the water inlet on lower back with air comprssor set at 40 lbs psi and a piece of plastic polethylene tubing that fit inside the hole using water in the tubing and rubber tipped air nozzle on the top end. This solved the problem and now it works.

White Knight condenser dryer trips the electirc

Hi i bought my dryer 4 years ago and within three months i had a technician to it3 three times, it had the same problem as yours all my fuses were tripping in the fuse box. eventually after 4 visits, the technician said there was a tiny hole in the back of the dryer which was letting condensation through and was dripping onto the motor. he put a small piece of rubber in the hole to make a stopper and it hasn't done it since. seems like a common problem but unfortunately only very few technicians seem to know how to solve the problem, thankfully it was still under guarantee at the time so got repaired, hope this helps and good look!!

Hi there, This is Jade. i bought a casioEX-S77 a year ago. i have little problem with charging. im not sure whether it has problem with charger or bettery or camera. i already tried to repair this but...

If the New charger has not solved the problem- then it has to be the battery or Camera or the connections between all three.
Only you or or the shop can solve this by process of elimination

Both of my headlights burned out about the same time a year and a half ago. I then replaced a few months ago, now the other one blew. It seems that these two lights both burned out too soon. Possible...

I've got a 2001 Elantra that "eats" headlights. Within the last five years, I've probably replaced both headlights 10-15 times. Last time I bought bulbs, the clerk at the Auto Zone recommended coating the connection points of the bulbs in electrical grease (which is different than regular grease). It's usually sold in small foil packages at the check-outs. Anyway, this seemed to prolong the life of the bulbs by 3-4 times. It's a cheap fix that didn't completely solved the problem, but sure cut down on the number of bulb replacements.

Download difficulties

Sometimes the pins in the camera output get bent from jamming the cable in (usually backwards). You can bend them back (GENTLY) and sometimes the output is just fried. I have had this happen and closed out of the program and reopened and the problem is solved. Make sure the camera is on when you reopen so it can recognize it in the process.

Dell 1600N Multifunction printer problem.

Fuser issues - if problem is reoccuring then you are looking at more expense, are all vents free of obstructions (folders leaning on machine sides/rear) is machine being flogged, is power supply consistent, maybe even fuser bought was faulty, many options, try doing a warranty claim on fuser or replace again, even better get another printer, welcome to our throw away world!
