Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Troublesome Printer We've had a 2175 for a few years, but Within the last six months, it has gone through a bunch of problems. First, the scanner wouldn't work. The computer would recognize it and try to scan, but the scanner wouldn't do anything and if I tried to cancel the scan, the printer would lock up and I'd have to turn it off and back on to get it working again. Then, the printer wouldn't print anything. I checked all the connections and even plugged it into different USB ports with no luck. I finally uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers with no luck. Now, the printer won't even turn on. I have, of course, checked the power cord and made sure it was plugged in and all that. Any ideas? I don't like the idea that it died after only a few years of use, but I can't come up with anything else.

I'm sorry to say this, but with those symptoms it sounds like the power supply was slowly becoming defective which sometimes happens. This is also probable if the machine would work when first turned on and then quit after a few minutes. Heat builds up and components begin breaking down with more heat. Best bet is to take it to a repair shop.

    Maestro-I just wanted to add that if you have power failures or lightning storms in your area, this commonly causes power supplies to fail. A surge suppressor helps that situation. Thanks and good luck..

I have a 2001 KIA Sephia I've had within the last 2 months the timing belt replaced, the fuel filter, pump & relay switch replaced, alternator and a new battery put in and it seems like I'

This will need a hands on inspection by a qualified mechanic. i suggest the Kia dealership, but at a minimum it needs to go to a different shop than the one you've been taking it to as they seem to not know what they're doing.

My brother Se 400 which is only a few months old just started running really slow. When I disconnect the foot petal and do the manual botton "the arrow button" it still runs slow. I don't...

have you checked to make sure the power cord is pushed in correctly?
if the power cord isn't the problem then it may need to be checked by a service tech, because it's not suppose to be running slow just a few months after you bought it.
I would call the people you bought it from & tell them what it's doing & see if they'll give you another one, I've been sewing for 30+ years & I wouldn't keep the machine.
good luck

Why wont my Night leopard light up the screen after no use for 1 year? The battery was replaced, the IR led comes on but no light on the screen. Help

Hello, it could be a number of problems with your Night Leopard Monocular. Broken wire, bad switch, cold solder joint, faulty electronic components, image intensifier tube has gone south faster than a Ethiopian chicken. Another problem here is were it was manufactured and there quality control procedures.... I would say that Russia manufacture mostly junk in their NV devises. But they also manufacture some night vision components that really good. Nothing to the quality of the US tho.

Since, I have work on a few of these Russian NV devises. 90% of the problem will the image intensifier tube. They might work for six months or six years. There quality control isn't the best in the work; of course, the companies in the USA that has there name and logo on them they tell a different story. GB....stewbison

My dishwasher stopped working, bought within the past few months, it seems like no power is getting to it. I've checked the breaker and all other appliances in house are fine.

Please provide make and model number of the dishwasher along with some indication of the last cycle it completed before this problem occured.

I've posted instructions that will help solve your problem for any machine, but especially for Singers. I've been using my CE250 for the last 4 months using the second method and my friend has successfully used the first for the past 9 months. Just follow the directions carefully and you should be fine.

Follow this link to the full instructions:

Scanner not detected

I have the same problem with my Canoscan LiDE 25 scanner used sparingly since purchase in 2008. Last used 3 days back after a gap of a few months when it scanned a few pages and then stopped working. On connecting the scanner to my laptop on Vista Home Premium 32-bit it shows "USB device not recognized". No change in status after uninstalling drivers, cleaning my system, and reinstalling drivers from the Canon CD, or Canon US site, or Canon UK site. Even tried VueScan but this also does not recognize the scanner. I find it hard to believe that a Canon product stops working in barely 5-6 years even though it is very sparingly used and stored in the original packing when not in use.
