It sounds like your up button is jammed. Try cleaning it out with a cloth an something like isopropyl alcohol, or maybe even some dust-off. That should help to unjam it. Hope this helps!

Just changed all brake pads and rotors on 2004 Buick Lesabre. There is a noice like a brake pad noise at partial pressing of brake petal. Is worse after traveling about 10 to 15 minutes

If it's just a slight squeak and then it goes away then it's probably brake dust. Some aftermarket brake pads will still squeak depending on what pads you got. It's a good idea to go with ceramic pads that have a cut down the center of the pad and the ends are chamfered. This will help disperse the brake dust and minimize any squeaking.

When it starts up it goes thru the steps then the error light comes on and it will not print. I put in a new ink cartridge and it did not help

The 8 beep error you are getting is a waste ink tank full error. The BJC 85 has a waste ink " tank " that is actually a series of absorbent cotton pads in the bottom of the printer. When these pads fill with ink, the printer is designed to produce that error and stop printing until the pads are replaced.

I can give you a work around to this and get you printing, but you must understand that, because the waste ink absorber is full, ink will eventually start leaking out into the bottom of your printer and either leak out of the printer, or end up shorting out the main circuit board , which is also in the bottom.

Here is the work around that will reset the printer and get you printing again:

1. Shut off the printer and unplug it from the power supply.

2. While holding down BOTH the POWER and RESUME buttons, plug the power supply back in. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the buttons until after the printer does it's initial actuation and then goes quiet again, then let go of the buttons. .

3. With the fingers of one hand Hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons and with the other hand hold down the POWER button. Listen for 2 BEEPS. they will not be loud, and one will be longer than the other. When you hear the 2 beeps, let go of all the buttons.

4. Now press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it' pressed. Make sure you count the beeps correctly.

5. After you have pressed the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button. The printer will beep and shut off.

6. Press the POWER button and the printer will power on and be ready to print. At this point, the printer will have been reset to indicate the waste ink is 50% full.

If you make a mistake, you can unplug the prnter and start over from step 1 at any time.

REMEMBER: Your waste ink pads are still FULL. You need to either replace the pads, or replace the printer before to much time goes by. If you see any ink leaking out the bottom of the printer, definitely stop using it.

Screen broken

From main screen:

Either 'a':
Press 'down' on your directional pad to open up the phonebook (default setting)


Press the menu key and scroll down to the phonebook entry (I'm not sure if you remember where yours is, as I changed my menu around. My phonebook listing is the first one. Dunno if this helps at all)

Then, once you are viewing your contacts:

Press the menu key.

Press 'down' on the directional pad eleven (11) times to highlight 'copy'.

Press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item.

Press down on the directional pad once to highlight the 'all to SIM' option.

Press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item.

Press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item (MERGE)


Press down on the directional pad once to highlight the 'OVERWRITE' option, and then press the center of the directional pad in to select the highlighted menu item.

Depending on how many contacts you have, this will take about 30 seconds per 100 contacts.

Touch pad issues

Next time you try scrolling on the touch pad, also push down (really) hard on the touch pad(kind of like you're squeezing the player). Keep doing this, and you may get it working. I've dropped mine a few times, and this push/squeeze/scroll seemed to work.
