Magna cart became very hard to open & finally a part broke off & now one wheel no longer locks in place.Is this product fixable ? Is it in warranty ?

that depends on your purchase , did you get a warranty with it how old is it , is it out of warranty or new , tell them it was broke when you bought and just tried it ,and it fell apart if it is new , if you broke it they may not cover it anyhow , and anything can be fixed what did you brake

Not printing the entire page. Approximately one quarter of the page not printing, across ways.

I would listen to the response to Geraldine Watts by Handyman
back in 2007. Not printing sounds like dirty heads that can be
lightly wiped by just a water damped qtip. This helped me at one
time. Black vertical lines are fixed by pulling plugs for a couple of
minutes (resets machine). It could also be a bad cartridge but I
doubt it. I would never waste money on buying parts because
the new printers to purchase are cheap enough.

My 6500 broke when I pulled out several pieces of paper and then got an ink failure error. No fix for this. I then bought the 7520.
photosmart and I am glad my 6500 broke.

I bought direct this time from HP at $149 (hp matched a best buy sale) as well as buying their warranty for $34 that covers next day replacement and any phone questions I might have for 3 years.

I love hp photosmarts only because they are the 'king' on photo
quality but I hate the reps charging if you are out of warranty.

If HP offered help to those out of warranty they would then have no
competition in the printer world. I buy my inks from local stores like staples. Good luck with your machine.

I have a laptop and both my usb port broke, my laptop is under warranty its a 5732z acer aspire. i want to know if the warranty cover it

In almost every case, NO. They'll consider it User Damage.
It depends on your warranty though and if you opted for a full-coverage plan that covers accidental damage.
If you bought it with American Express or some other Credit Card you might have insurance.
Hope this info helps!

My screen broke on my garmin wide screen - i have a warranty 1 year manufacturer and a 4 year best buy and they wont cover it. . . what do I do?

Contact Garmin Make sure its registered with them and explain what happened. They have a flat rate charge to fix anything for one price but you need to see if they will cover it under the warranty. Physical damage is hard to prove as a factory defect, unless it was that way out of the box.

Best Buy loves to sell warranties that they won't honor. They're credit card system is a joke and their phone reps are outsourced outside of the US.

Broken screen

im sorry to hear that there is no other way around it like what i said warranty can only be covered if it is a factory defect or by any chance the part was damaged by itself. im afraid you might need to send it to a repair shop, if you can i can show you how to do it by yourself but you need to buy the LCD

take it easy

Cd driver won't install

Make sure the CD drive is fine. When you insert the CD, does the CD drive's LED on at all? In Device Manager, did you see the CD drive is detected / working properly? Or if the CD drive is broken, Toshiba covers the warranty? If not, then you may buy a USB CD-drive.
