I'm not familiar with this particular monitor, however I have had the same problem on other manufacturers monitors.

I am assuming that the buttons are on the front bezel of the monitor.

You will have to separate the rear and front cases. This is actually the toughest part of the job. I have a special plastic tool I made to help me separate the cases. I also use a large putty knife for prying. This helps to spread out any pressure and reduce marks left around the seams.

Once inside, it depends on how the case came apart. There could be a pcb mounted to the front bezel. There could just be a row of buttons on the bottom or side of the panel frame. Look for the actuators (plastic buttons) that contact the switches. Make sure they are seated squarely Check for any kind of spillage around the actuators. This can dry sticky and cause the actuator to stick in one position If this is the case, you will have to find a way to remove them and wash them. Use a cotton swab with a little soapy water on it to clean the holes in the frame where the actuators stick through.

Check around inside the unit and make sure everything is seated correctly, and that nothing is out of alignment enough to cause the buttons to be misaligned.

This is about all you can do. If it does not correct the fault, the unit will have to be taken to a service shop for a look. Expect to pay anywhere from $40 to $80 to correct a fault like this unless you have warranty.

DTC P0700: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Requested MIL Illumination

Which one of these transmissions does your Malibu have ?

DTC P0716: Input Speed Sensor Performance
DTC P0717: Input Speed Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
The automatic transmission input speed sensor (ISS) is a permanent magnet with a coil of wire wound around. The ISS mounts in the case cover facing the reluctor wheel of the input shaft. As the reluctor wheel is driven by the turbine shaft, an AC signal is induced in the input speed sensor. Higher vehicle speeds induce a higher frequency and voltage at the sensor. There is a fixed air gap between the sensor and the teeth on the sensor reluctor wheel. The ISS input is used by the transmission control module (TCM) in order to control line pressure, torque converter clutch (TCC) apply and release, and transmission shift patterns. This sensor is also used to calculate the appropriate gear ratios and TCC slippage. This diagnostic indicates stuck, erratic, or intermittent conditions in the system.
Diagnostic Aids
• Road test the vehicle while monitoring the Transmission ISS parameter on the scan tool. The Transmission ISS parameter should vary with engine speed changes and not abruptly drop out.
• Inspect for an open or shorted AT ISS wire.
• Inspect for a disconnected AT ISS connector.
• Inspect for a faulty AT ISS.

HP Photosmart 3310 All-in-One Printer - I opened the ink cartridge door & it now seems locked in open position - won't close.

Your printer does have a lock that clicks in when you open the printer to replace ink catridges. The User Manual has no specific comment on steps required to release the lock.

Is there a release tab/button that you grip when lifting? If so, suggest you try pressing this same release as you lift the cover, lifting slightly higher to see if the lock will disengage allowing you to close.

If no release tab/button simply try lifting slightly higher as above to see if the lock will disengage.

If either of these does not resolve isse I would inspect losely to see if there is a way to disengage the lock; simply using more force may result in damage.

I pressed the eject button and then, by mistake, the pop out button. After the face came off, the inner part remained stuck in the eject position, so I can not fit the face back on. Any ideas how to get...

there should be a latch release button on the subpanel. use a pencil or small rod to press it to unlock the latch. the button should be in the same area as the face release button corresponding to the face.

Parking brake stuck on down position


Looks like your release button on the handle lever is stuck!

You could fix it by removing the bolts on the base of the lever, free up the cable by looking at the slot were the cable stopper enters. Check the spring and the button. It might need only some WD 40 oil or grease up the stopper , sping, and the release button.

Hope that helps yu out!

Thanks for seeking help in Fixya!

There is a auto lock which keeps it in PARK position until released by the user, generally done with a Button which is pressed by the thumb. It's a simple locking pin with a spring & a container.
Get that lock & button replaced a.s.a.p.(i.e the entire assembly if required, since this a equipment which is used most frequently other than locking the doors and turning the ignition) .................sodeep
