Everstar air conditioner

The drip pan on my everstar 10000btu standup unit seem to be missing the metal piece that i guess let the unit know pan is in place or not full. The unit still works but will not cool unless red light stops and senser knows pan is in place. I have tried to get a preplacemant part but there are none available is the anyway i can fix this problem myself if i knew exactly what the peice looked like or where nad how it activates senser i could fix the problem.

    My Everstar Portable Air Conditioner, Model# MPM-08CR-BB4 has completely stopped; it is dead. "P1" lights up where the digital temperature indicator usually is. Also, there's a red light at the top that's come on. Could this have something to do with a filter or the exhaust? How can I fix this?

    Thank you in advance,

    I have the same problem.  P1 light is on and I cannot set cool option, the only thing that is working is the fan. The drip pan is in place.

    Thank you for any help!

    I have the MPK-10cr-1. I too had the P2 error coming up. Here is what I did. The slide that tells the P2 switch to open gets stuck. Mine had one of the control rods on the wrong side of the slide. I removed the switch and put it on correctly. That cured the problem. Don't attempt if you haven't any experience working on problems such as this.

If you take the cover off of the air conditioner. right above where the water catch is there is a switch in there. cut the wires on the switch. its only 2 wires and wire them to gether put electrical tape on the wires baldspot and put back together. put bucket back and turn it on. it will not stop running after the bucket is full now but it will work again.

Re: P1 Message
My problem was solved by just putting the plastic tube in a bucket and letting the water run out.  First time I ever had to do this. This was the first time the humidity was so high since I have been using the unit. Easy Fix if that's your problem.  

Posted on May 22, 2009


I had the P1 problem as well. Took the case off and there was a little toggle switch that had fallen from its place at the top left of the water storage compartment. I just put some tape over it to hold it down and that was that.

Good times

Instead of cutting the wires I just whack the bucket in until it hits the switch which you can work with our fingers. pull the bucket out the push in the switch (upper left corner where the bucket is) and it will turn off P2.. I suppose bubble gum would work too but then you will get overflow when the bucket fills. I suggest bubble gum and a long hose out the window.

There is a loose part rattling within my transparency hood which prevents it from working - how can I repair this ?

I just had this problem too. What has probably happened is that the belt/wheel assembly within the upper lid has broken loose from its plastic housing. It is normally retained in place by two weak plastic posts, each having a plastic extrusion that holds the metal housing for the wheel in place. Just minor stress can apparently snap off the plastic extrusions. (Nice quality workmanship, Epson.)

Unplug the upper lid and remove it. Unscrew the 5 retaining screws and then use a small flathead screwdriver to carefully pry the bottom of the unit away from the rest of the housing. Stabilize the wheel mechanism so that you can rotate the whole unit around in order to grab the broken plastic pieces and small spring without allowing the wheel mechanism to crash into things. Superglue the two broken plastic pieces to their proper mated location on the lid, and wait about half a day for a solid bond. Then fit the wheel housing over the two plastic pieces so that the thin silver bar is pointed toward the back of the lid. (Do NOT place the spring over the thin silver bar yet.) Fit the orange belt properly around the wheel. NOW, push the wheel housing carefully toward the front of the lid until there is slight tension in the belt. Squeeze one end of the spring over the thin silver bar and push the spring completely into its recessed plastic trough while compressing it. Reassemble, and you're done.

Fujitsu fi-5750C scanner error 4718 abnormal light dose


You seem very familiar with this unit I have a couple of questions:
1. Where can I get a parts and service manual?
2. How do I separate the scanner from the flatbed, so the unit can be packed for shipping in two pieces, rather than the humungous and fragile 80-lb. unit it is now?

Thanks in advance -- hope you get this message.

I need the amount of amps used for multiple pieces of equipment

I'll hazard a guess that you are trying to run these things off of a single household electrical circuit and want to avoid an overload. In that case, the best way is to determine how many Watts each device uses. That information can either be found on the back/bottom of the unit, or on the AC adaptor that came with it. In the latter case, use the "input power" value.

Once you know the wattage, divide by the input voltage - 120 Volts in the US, 100 Volts in Japan, or 240 Volts in Europe, Australia, and much of Asia.

For example...the info on the bottom of my boombox indicates 120V at 16W...

Watts / Volts = Amps
18W / 120V = 0.15A

In another example, my laptop power supply has the following info...

120V-240V @ 160W input
15.4V @ 145W output

I use 120 Volts here so the math goes...

160W / 120V = 1.333A

Note that the output values are not used.

If I want to know how much current the devices use together, I merely add them...

Boombox Amps + Laptop Amps = Total Amps

0.15A + 1.333A = 1.483A

I hope this helps !

I have a CanoScan Lide 90 and the scanner bed is jamed and yes it is unlocked

had the same problem. take off the two framing pieces of plastic that run along the edges of the glass (they are stuck on with glue so use a knife). prize the glass out of the unit and check that you can move the scanning moving part up and down. remove any bits of plastic. test the moving parts by replacing the glass and scanning. mine seems to work fine now, fingers crossed. x

I did not find to drivers and controllers by my hp scanjet 5100c

Sorry to say, but the ScanJet 5100c is not a Vista compatible unit.
The same thing happened with some of the earlier HP units when XP came out.
This is not the only piece of equipment out there that is not supported in Vista, it is too old for them to write drivers for.

HP does offer a trade ups option for older equipment. You can read about it here

Everstar Air Conditioner

probably, the p1 signals that the water pan is either full or not sitting properly. There is a small lever that it pushes when the tray is pushed in. It is a switch that might have pushed out of its housing. Mine had and I had to dissasemble the unit to get the switch back in place, then it worked fine. Good luck. Dean

Transparency adaptor won't close

Remove the transparency adaptor from the scanner bed (unscrew the two smaller screws, then slide back and off) and then remove the glass (and plastic frame) of the transparency adapter (there are six screws).


By the hinge there is a small white plastic switch. Usually the transparency adaptor hits this when it's closed, letting your computer know that it is ready to scan. What I did, as bcvideo did, was take duct tape and firmly taped the switch to the side of the transparency adaptor, using several small strips of tape.


The scanner works well now. You may need/want to put something on top of the scanner if it does not fully close.

Kodak 2500D error

I have had the same problem. That error represent a document still in the scan path. You will probably find there is no paper in the scanner. I tried this and it works every time. On the top of the scanner there is an access door. You will find this just above the discharge rollers. Open that door and either blow air in the compartment or blow hard using your mouth to clear dust. Close the door. That should resolve the problem. It is my guess that dust collects on sensors and the scanner is tricked into thinking there is paper in the path.

You need to go farther than the lens glass. The dust is actually on the photo board itself. I'm assuming that the problem is on the bottom scanning side. You will need to dis assemble the scanner to remove the scanning unit. This can be done by remove the back, the sides, and the two front pieces. Once inside remove the silver metal cover over the rollers. This will help you get the actually scanning equipment out. Remove the black scanning unit behind the silver metal cover.

Make sure to ground yourself before continuing or you could short the boards.
Under the lens glass there are three boards. Two are visible. One is white, long and skinny. On the backside one is green. The one you need to get to is hidden between the black piece, and silver metal piece. There should be 6 screws that you will need to remove first.
Very gently pry the plastic from the metal. The problem that you are looking for is there.
Wipe the photo cells with an alcohol swab, and you should be good to go.
