Paper won't feed due to piece coming loose

Small piece that seems to hold & assist in feeding paper came loose. piece is approx 2 inches wide & 1 1/4 tall. It has a small spring in the center with one end of the spring pointing down. My daughter said that it was approximately in the center of the paper feed area.  Needless to say, I have absolutely no idea how to replace it and we need the printer for homework.

If it is the piece I am thinking of, try replacing the spring with a modified spring from a click-top pen. Otherwise, please add a photo of the issue for better understanding

DOES THE HOLE HAVE TO BE BLOCKED ON THE REGULATOR AND HOSE ASSEMBLY ON THE 5 BURNER DGFS10SSP 2015?


The hole you are referring to is on the gas supply side of the regulator I guess. It is a very small hole and looks like it is blocked but is probably open. It lets high pressure gas into the regulator which reduces the gas pressure before sending it to the burners. The best way to test it is open and the regulators is working is to disconnect the hose to the burners and place it into a can of water. Bubbles means it is working.

I'm getting an error message when trying to print


Error 6C10 appears on certain Canon printers. It is a "valve cam sensor error". Here are some things to try to fix it:

Solution 1:
  • Move the printhead to the center.
  • Disconnect the printer and check on the right: is the purge unit ok? Is there a paper jam or piece of paper stuck in it?
Solution 2:
  • Do a reset of the printer by performing the following:
    • Turn the printer Power ON
    • Hold down the "Resume" button (triangle in a circle) for 15 to 20 seconds.
Solution 3:
  • Power off the printer.
  • Open the door.
  • Power on.
  • When the cartridge is in the center, close the door.
Solution 4:
  • Open the lid and allow the ink cartridge carrier to center itself.
  • Looking to the right, you will see a row of white rollers behind the carrier.
  • At the end of the rollers there is a small, clear piece of plastic that sticks up. Take a small piece of a paper towel and wipe all of the ink off this piece of plastic. When that is clean move on to the ink pad.
  • About 1 inch, towards the front of the printer from that piece of plastic, is a small square, about 1/2 inch per side, that is a small foam pad. This is where the excess ink is collected.
  • Take a piece of paper towel and press into the foam. Do this until the paper towel is no longer collecting ink. Close the lid, turn off the printer then turn it back on.
Solution 5:
Solution 6:
  • Remove case and look for the micro switch that is being pressed by one of the purge unit cams. Clean the switch and the cams. If the problem does not clear, replace the micro switch.

Why is my whirlpool electric drying making a loud screeching sound


I know this is a late answer but you have bad bearings on the dryer. There is usually 1 on the back of the drum in the center. Its in 2 pieces, one is nickel coated and the other is hard plastic like material that holds the nickel piece. The other 2 are on the front of the drum on the top just out of sight. They attache to a lip on the front of the machine and the drum 'rides' on the bearings. These are usually about 3 inches long by 1/2 inch wide and 3/8 inch tall and are made of a hard plastic like material.

MF4350d gives a paper jam error when it has no paper in it.


I hired a technician who came to house and showed me where the paper jam was hidden... found technician on craigslist for $50 flat rate, came out on Saturday. He solved the paper jam problem in 20 minutes. One place to check for paper jam you cannot see until to look behind a hinged plastic flap above the cartridge area. Remove cartridge.Above the cartridge area is a width-wide plastic piece, about 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide from top to bottom, hindged along the top edge, moves but is attached along the two lower corners of the piece by small springs (one at each corner) to the housing of the machine. You cannot easily lift the plastic flap up to look behind it for paper jam until you remove the springs. I used forceps to remove them. Tweezers may work. Don't lose them! Once you remove the springs you can easily lift up the plastic flap (it is hinged) and look behind it into the crevices for any paper. That is where we found a small piece of paper. We needed a skinny forceps to reach into the crevice to get the paper out.

Any small CPU cooler could fit into this crow space computer?


That Thermaltake Cpu cooler you show is HUGE! Not surprised it won't fit! lol! It's 117mm Long x 102mm Wide x141mm Tall.
That's about 4-1/2 inches Long by 4 inches Wide by 5-1/2 inches Tall!

Suggestion for CPU cooler? Hmmmm, how about a ZEROtherm CF900? It's 100mm Long X 94mm Wide X 77mm Tall.
Here's the PDF file download for it's installation guide,

Here's on place I found it on a quick search,

Speedfan is a software many people use to control CPU fan speed,
http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
Perhaps you should try it. To change your fan speed in your BIOS Setup utility, you access BIOS Setup, and look in Advanced BIOS options. See if this option is there. I would use care, hence why I posted Speedfan instead.

Will not feed paper. HP Photosmart 2575


This is a very common problem. Apparently HP changed the roller because of this fault.
I've tried cleaning, I've tried making the roller rough. I tried to get HP to send me a new roller but they didn't even reply.
HP are a rubbish company who don't care at all about customers (and their printer software (bloatware) is even more rubbish).
BUT - the solution I found:
The spring that holds the roller down onto the paper is too weak. I bent the end of a straightened out paper clip into a small hook then made another hook-like bend a bit further up (but kept the rest of the clip to use like a handle). the length between the two hook parts is just under 1/2 inch. Don't cut it yet - buy you will need to when it's in place.
ad74983.jpg Hold the handle end (the bit at the bottom of this sketch) so you can fiddle about in the small space and don't loose the spring altogether.
Find the spring that fixes onto the roller gadget, it hooks onto the printer body. Hook the spring off the hole in the printer body, and then catch the second (double) hook of the paperclip onto the small printed circuit board just by the roller (most of the board is empty - so hook it to the left end of the board).
Then, when it's all in place cut the rest of the paperclip off.
You can see the double hook part once I'd cut off the "handle" piece in the photo:

0e1481b.jpg and here you can see where the spring used to go, and where it fixes with the clip thingy I made.

Of course this is what I did (when I was about to throw the printer away so it was a last chance survival idea), if you loose the spring, stick it onto something that goes sparky-sparky or otherwise kill the machine or yourself I can't take responsibility!

Canon pc 430 feeder problem


You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.

This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.

Samsung SCX-4521 "Paper Jam 2" won't clear


I had this problem too. For me the answer turned out to be the paper sensor in the back part of the machine, behind the little back door just under the top part of the machine. This sensor hangs down from a thin rod that runs across the width of the machine, and is held in place by a small spring that encircles the same rod that supports the finger. The finger had apparently gotten moved so the spring was dislodged from its proper place. I was able to rotate it around the rod with my finger & get the spring moved back to where it should be. This seems to have cleared the problem--I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Canon Pc720 Copier Paper Jam


The problem with the paper jam (but not feeding) is that a small
piece of plastic that holds one end of a spring the causes the feed
gears to push against the powered gear on the back side of the toner
cartridge breaks off. So the unit does not feed (no pickup rollers
etc) and it thinks there is a paper jam (no moving paper). Orienting
the front as the side you work at, the back being the back, the
feed being the side the paper goes into and the output being the
side the finished copy comes out, open the unit. Looking into it
from the output side almost to the input on the bottom notice the
small hairlike things sticking up. Move to the left (back of the
machine) and see a few white gears all hooked into this gray metal
housing that moves up and down about 1/2 inch (It pivots). At the
top input side of this metal you will see a part of the metal that
stick up and has a small slot in it. the spring used to hook onto
this and the other end hooked to a small piece of plastic down and
more to the input side a bit, onto the upper input side of the white
plastic part that houses a shaft to a roller (fat little spring
about 1 inch long). the plastic part breaks off and you usually
can't see that a part was even there. The spring will still be in
the area. If you are handy, you can figure out how to fix it. I got
a longer spring (same strength) bent the metal toward the back 1/4"
and ran the new spring from there to a 1/16 hole I drilled in the
plastic side next to the circuit board (down low and back). I shaped
the end of the spring (where I drilled)to keep it more inside and
not hit anything. Works fine.
