Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I've asked the question several times and have had some good suggestions however a solution hasn't been found and now I find that the "experts" that have engaged in responses have now seemingly ceased their discussion/suggestions. I have a MP730 printer, a TX1000 HP Pavillion laptop. A linksys wireless router hooked up to a desktop. At one time the laptop could print wirelessly to the printer. Now it isn't able too. It does however work obviously when it's wired to the printer. All the drivers have been reinstalled and the printer works fine. The only issue is the laptop no longer speaks wirelessly to the printer. I've tried all the suggestions repeatedly yet no go? I still need help. Anyone have any more great ideas? Thanks.

It would have been easier for me if you would have told me the Operating systems on your PC and laptop. Anyways I'm asuming that your pc has windows xp 32 bit and your laptop has windows 7 64 bit. If this is the case then here's your solution

Try the following: install the printer on the 64 bit machine via USB, the reconnect to your XP machine. Now go to the Devices and Printers folder, right click on the MP 730, Printer properties, Ports, Add port, Local port, Create port and select \\XPcomputer\printer (where you supply the appropriate share name for the computer and printer), OK, OK

If this is not your OS then kindly let me know.

Coolant indicator light will not shut off even after adding coolant 2003 malibu

If the system is indeed full of coolant then the coolant sensor may be faulty or dirty. I've replaced several of these for this problem. If the coolant is dirty or hasn't been changed for some time then that will contribute to the sensor problem so it may be a good idea to flush the cooling system and install new/clean coolant at the same time to avoid future problems. Good luck, hope this helps!

Good job in re-seating the cartridges into the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge has gone bad.

Sorry to tell you, but your older camera will not work with 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Your camera was designed before SDHC format came out. You'll need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and are easily found on Amazon, just in case your local store no longer carries them. For others reading, there are several other possible causes for memory card problems, with troubleshooting steps that may be viewed here.

I've tried, in vain, every recommendation that has been suggested. I've emptied the toner bin, changed out the toner cartridges, bought a new USB cord and installed it in a different port,...


There might be a problem with the paper sensor. Check the rear portion of the printer where you get the paper out try to open the back of the printer and check if the sensor is working well. Usually it will be stuck and need to be released. And if you can just give a little bang on the back of the printer this may cause the sensor to trip and start working.

A couple of times I've found that the dishwasher tablet I'm using (Finish) hasn't dissolved correctly. I found it in the cutlery box the last time. I've been putting it on the 65 degree...

I am guessing you are using the Centigrade temperature scale ... which would be 149 degrees F. 149 is way hot in terms of regular house hold use. Probably just right for a dish washer.

I would expect most tablet detergent would disolve properly at this temperature and with proper water pressure in the machine. You should have plenty of both in this machine. May I suggest you give liquid dish washer detergent a try to see the results?
