Casio DR-210HT Calculator

Went to change ribbon - now will not print or feed paper. get an "E" when I try to print. The gears should move by hand but don't. Opened another working unit to compare and now they both don't work. There must be a gear release that became locked on both machines. How do I release it. Thanks

I don't think you'll find parts for this, however I did find a used one, buy it now, for less than $20, shipped: http://cgi.ebay.com/Texas-Instruments-Electronic-Printng-Calculator-TI-5045_W0QQitemZ160148715050QQcmdZViewItem Buying a used unit and either replacing yours or using it for parts is probably your best bet.

SOURCE: E shows on display screen and my 5045 SVC calculator won't work n

Mine did the exact same thing, only when I would multiply or add 5 and 5, when I hit = it showed up 555. I just put it on POWER IC for about 15 minutes. Then hit the clear button at the same time as I turned off the power. When I turned the POWER ON there was no longer an E or the crazy triple digits. Hope yours does the same. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

SOURCE: I have a TI-5045 II Calculator that wont print

I have the exact same problem (just happended recently) with my TI-5045 II after 25 years of good service. My solution? I just bought another model: Sharp EL-1801V at Stapels for about $31.00. To get the old one fixed will probably cost me $25.00-30.00 just to diagnose, plus shipping and parts and labor. And that assumes I can find a shop to do it, or that TI still stocks the part(s) gone bad. Same old problem with all technology.

Printer keeps printing over the =same line, paper is not moving


Theirs a small gear in the gear train on the left hand side that turns the paper roller(Platen).
It has lost a couple of teeth. Has the paper is no longer feeding the print head simply keeps printing on the same place.
You need a service repair.

Even thought there is NO paper jam, I still get an error message:


Please try this solution :

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

I have a canon pixma pi1800 i will not take the paper... it keeps saying paper jammed!! i tried cleaning rollers etc... tried printing a test shhet.. it says printing finished but i hadnt done it as it...


Here's a few things to try :

1. Blow it out with compressed air blower .especially the rollers and the paper feed area make sure there are no bits of paper or dust in the paper feed area and in the front access area that could be causing the jam.

2. Verify that the cartridge carriage moves to the service area when the front door is opened (as if to change tanks)

3. Verify that the timing belt, drive belt, gearing and rollers all look normal.



4. With the computer off, unplug the printer's power cord and USB cord for about 3-5 min

after plug it back if the problem still persists then move to the next step
6. Completely uninstall the printer's driver and software. Then reinstall the printer's drivers only.

Retry after each step.hope this helps

Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.

Lexmarkx73 Won't feed paper through while printing

2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)

PAPER JAM


SUGGESTION #1 The print carriage might be jammed. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
  1. With the power on, lift the print cartridge access door. The print carriage should move to the access area located on the right. If the print carriage stays all the way left, reset the unit by unplugging the then plugging in the power cord. If the carriage still does not move to the right, continue with the steps below.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Remove both print cartridges.
  4. Push the print carriage slightly to the left and then to the right to verify that the print carriage is not jammed. If the print carriage will not move, check for obstructions under and around the carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord.
  7. When the " Insert Print Cartridges " message displays, open the print cartridge access door and insert the print cartridges. Verify that both cartridges are seated correctly and lock into position.
SEGGUSTION #2 cleaning rollers Over time dust and paper fibers will accumulate on the paper feed rollers. This can cause paper feed problems. Follow the steps below to clean the rollers: Figure 3: Paper feed rollers c00212278.jpg
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door (as describe above in this document).
  3. Clean each roller using a clean lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). Rotate the rollers to clean the entire surface.
  4. Verify that the paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate easily.
  5. Re-seat the rear access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the all-in-one.
If these suggestions don't fix the problem feel free to write back to me. Try to be a little more specific i.e does paper feed properly, error message shows with paper/without paper or both, do any of the lights flash when this happens, have you tried diiferent paper sizes ot types. Have you taken it apart to check for any obstructions?

Wheelwriter 6


You may need a ribbon motor or motor board, however on the older wheelwriters sometimes the gear mesh gets sloppy and gears jam tooth for tooth. Try moving the ribbon lift gear/cam on rt. side of the carrier by hand with the machine off if it won't move that's the trouble. Wiggle it back and forth and it may free up.

Jammed gears


Alignment of the gears is needed to solve this case. Although only authorized technician can only align these gears because it is too complicated.
