Getting Tired Works beautifully, then seems to " get tired": starts printing partial letters. The next morning it works fine, then the same thing starts again.

Also, at my office we have cans of compressed air. I used that on our typewriters and it works fine. My superiors were afraid of the WD40 hurting something.

Look at the ribbon. Is there a space for each letter? If so see if you can get some WD40 on the back and front of the print solenoid plunger. The solenoid is located below the ribbon just inside the l. printer side frame it dose gum up. if the ribbon isn't moving try anew ribbon and WD40 on the ribbon motor top and bottom bearings.

My dishes are not getting clean anymore! It's extremely frustrating. Also, sometimes my soap doesn't even dissolve! This dishwasher isn't very old, but I am tired of it!


hi, This is a water temp. problem. The first fill s/b about 125-140 degrees. You can try running your hot water tap for several minutes. Run a load, see if there is some improvement. Next, go to your water heater, see where the setting is. On a gas move dial up a notch. On electric remove top and bottom covers and do the same thing. You also need to clean the dw off and on. Take a gallon of white distilled vinegar and pour the whole gallon into the dw after it has started and run for awhile. Then open the door and let sit overnite, starting the next morning. Hope this helps.

It sounds like a fuel pump and/or fuel filter. Couple of reasons - if fuel filter is partially clogged fuel pump works twice as hard. Also this time of year with big temperature swings condensation (water) forms in fuel tank. If its a weak fuel pump, as pump gets old/tired it won't hold adequate pressure and drains back at night or shut down. Try the fuel filter first and run a good fuel cleaner through it prior to changing filter.

Ribbon will not advance


mark the ribbon where it turns, where there is a pin of the typewriter passing through the ribbon,mark it with a white marker.
and type something, if it doesnt turn, you know the machine has a problem.
or try everytime pressing on the ribbon, if it works you know the ribbon is coming up, check if the correction ribbon is placed good.behind the correctable ribbon.

Epson RX650 with a G5 Mac. Printing beautifully,now pgs are blank


It definately sounds like blocked print heads, try head cleaning 4 or 5 times, leave overnight and try another 4 or 5 times the next day. This usually works, if not you will need to try something a little bit stronger. Try this link:

Blocked print heads are more far more common if you are using non-genuine Epson inks. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Could be a partial block - print a block of color and look for blank spaces in it, if you get them, then you should unblock the nozzle and the print head. Clean them with hot distilled water, and to be on the safe side clean the contacts as well. Good luck!
