If it's on the back of the paper you're getting ink leakage from somewhere...

Air gap setting for 4 stroke rover mower model no 30694


I cant seem to get your model number to work for me but under Rover push mowers it looks like they use Briggs and Stratton engines so if true Air Gap: 0.203/0.305 mm (0.008/0.012 in.)
The way I do it is fold a piece of printer paper one inch folds four thickness, wrap around flywheel, roll the flywheel around so the magnet is pulling the coil up tight to the flywheel,the four thickness of the printer paper is your air gap, then tighten the screws . Pull on the paper as you rotate the flywheel to remove it. Dont forget to check that the little wire is plugged in other wise it wont shut off. Replace the spark plug and spark plug boot/wire as well as the flywheel cover and it should start up.

I cannot connect to pcsuite its displays to be disconnected


Hi Piyush,

The problem seems to be with your USB port on either end. If you use your USB port (PC end) rarely then there's a chance of corrosion/oxidization that has formed on the contacts. Use a little bit of WD40. First take a small piece of good thick drawing paper (the ones used by kids in class to draw stuff on).
Fold it in such a way so as to fit it inside the PC's USB port. Now apply a few drops of WD40 oil on the paper's folded edge and insert the paper gently into the port and rub it (IN-OUT-IN-OUT) action. Now try connecting your cable & handset.
Assuming that you have a frint panel USB connector and if its still not working then there could be a loose contact problem with the 4 pin USB motherboard connectors. Switch OFF the PC, remove the side cover and see where the wires go on the motherboard from the front panel.

VERY IMPORTANT: CAUTION, BEFORE REMOVING THE 4 USB PINS FROM THE MOTHERBOARD, WRITE DOWN ON A PIECE OF PAPER THE SEQUENCE THEY ARE PRESENTLY CONNECTED AS YOU WILL HAVE TO RE-CONNECT THEM IN THE EXACT SAME MANNER. A WRONG CONNECTION WILL CERTAINLY DAMAGE YOUR MOTHERBOARD BEYOND REPAIR. THERE ARE 4 PINS: Refer Diagram Below:
wolftech.jpg
Remove the pins one by one, apply a little WD40 in the sockets of the black, square cylindrical sockets and place them back and restart your PC.

It should work now.

When receiving a FAX or printing a receipt, it repeatedly jams. The paper is found inside the back cover baked into a folded fan shape.


This folded pattern indicates that the jam is being caused by a physical obstruction in the paper path section. I would suggest manually feeding a thick piece of cardstock paper and seeing if you can find the location of the jam, as it is most likely a piece of trapped paper or plastic tab that has come out of its original position.

Camera plate has lots on play in it. slides and rocks back and forth. very loose.


If it is a manufacturing flaw, contact the company. If the company is unreachable, or you have to pay for a new part and want to save money: try folding a piece of paper and putting it in the mounting tray the plate attaches to. The paper between the plate and the mounting surface will serve to fill the void that the plate is free to move around in. Fold the paper as many times as you have to until it is thick enough to fill the void. Experiment with the best place to put the paper to eliminate play. You may have to put more than one piece in the tray to achieve even results and avoid the camera being cocked when the plate is mounted.

Lexmark z715. paper comes thru with no ink in it. cartridge is full and appears to be installed oorrectly..please help


You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:

1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "All Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Turn the power to the printer "off."
2. Press and hold the "Paper Feed" button.
3. Press the "Power" button once while continuing to hold the "Paper Feed" button.
4. Keep holding the "Paper Feed" button until one sheet is cycled through.
5. The test is continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know.
