Question about Victor Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Victor 1260-2 will power on, give a very short hum/buzz then go quiet and not work.

Can pull the paper both ways but it is very tight. Won't feed on its own. A green E shows at the far left of the screen. Any ideas what's going on? Rick.

It sounds like there may be an issue with the motor that drives the paper feed mechanism. The hum/buzz that you hear when you turn it on could be the motor trying to start but failing to do so. The tightness of the paper feed could also be related to the motor issue.
The green "E" on the screen likely indicates an error. Without more specific information about the error code, it's difficult to determine the exact issue. However, it's possible that the error code is related to the motor or paper feed issue.
If you're comfortable doing so, you may want to try opening up the machine to see if there are any obvious issues with the motor or paper feed mechanism, such as a loose or broken part. If you're not comfortable doing this or if you're unable to identify the problem, it may be best to take it to a professional for repair.

    Thanks for getting back to me. After not hearing back from you for so long, I went ahead and threw the machine out and bought a new one.

Shredder only hums will not grab paper

What sort of hum? Very quiet? Loud with vibration? Have you tried feeding anything else into the unit? Envelope? It's possible that you're not pushing the paper far enough in to let the shredder's teeth grab it.

Feed the paper through the slot located just under where the roll is sitting. Once you have fed it through as far as you can, press the arrow button (the up arrow) on your calculator until it catches the paper & feeds it through the machine.

Epson stylus sx515w paper will not feed properly

pls make sure that you loaded the paper correctly.
Open the paper support and pull up the extensions. Open the output tray and pull out the extensions. Then flip up the paper stopper on the last extension, unless you’re printing on legal-size paper. . Flip the feeder guard up, out of the way, then squeeze the edge guide and slide it left. Insert paper, printable side up, against the right side and beneath the tab. Load paper short edge first, no matter which way your document faces.
Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first.
Do not load paper with holes punched in it.
Do not load transparencies.
Do not load paper above the paper.4.3.4.jpg arrow on the edge guide.
Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions. 5. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly. if you put the paper correctly and still not feeding the paper correctly, that means the rollers of the printer is broken

Sounds like it is grounding out to it self and when it does that is the only time that the cable roller will move this is a century 110 volt wire feed model that worked just great and then all of a sudden...

unplug the gun then turn of. this will eliminate the gun being bad. If it still continues check for obvious shorts to ground. If nothing obvious its probably a failing/failed control board.

Shreeder Feeder jammed , appears cleared, makes a humming noise when attempting to feed paper and a similar noise when hitting the reverse button. Help please. Thank you.

It could be one of two problems and they are both usually caused by over feeding. Either the tooth rollers have junped out of their sockets or they are jammed tight with paper which would cause the first to happen also. There are safety switches but unplug the unit any way. Get on the output side of the shreeder and start pulling paper or remove the metal object that was dropped into its throat. Hopefully, you won't have to take it apart to put the rollers back into their sockets.

Maytag CMV1000BAW microwave doesn't heat

Probably a bad mag, if the transformer goes bad it will draw a lot of amps and blow the fuse. If a mag shorts it just makes a more pronounced hum. Same with the rectifier. If you Ohm out the rectifier it should show open both ways as it is a really high resistance and the only way it would make a louder hum is if it shouts. so If it looks open it is probably OK, and probably bad mag. .

There's a buzzing sound coming from my central air conditioner unit outside. The fan is quiet but I hear a buzzing sound. Should that be happening? Sounds like there's something loose.

Things that are not broken: The big relay that powers the compressor often hums or buzzes when the unit is running. Several brands of heat pumps keep their reversing valve "on" any time the thermostat is set for "cool". They buzz, too.

If something really is loose, the only way to fix it is to look at the machine and take off panels until you find what is buzzing.
