The Resolution can be changed in Windows XP by minimizing all applications, right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties. In the Display Settings window go to the Settings tab. Here you can change the resolution. I think you are wanting to use a widescreen setup so going for a resolution of 1280x800 should fill your screen. Play around with the available settings to resize the screen.

If you are using MS Vista, you need to minimize all applications to the desktop, right click, select Personalize. In the Personalize Window click on Display Settings down the bottom, modify the resolution as appropriate.

Alternatively, you may be able to find the function key that did this to your resolution. Above your F1-F12 keys there should be a little picture. If you click on the [fn] key (near the Windows key) as well as one of the F1-F12 keys you can cause different functions to be performed. This may be how the resolution changed initially.

Good luck

Why is the slap stick on my suv not working


I have an '04 Outlander and the manual slap stick stopped working. I also noticed the Drive light was not on when in auto drive. This is a common problem with this model and a relatively easy fix. Tools you will need are a small flat head and medium cross head scredriver, solder gun and electronic grade solder, small heat shrink tubing. Remove the entire center console - start at the rear by removing the 4 philips screws in the center arm rest compartment, remove the cover plate underneath the hand brake and the 2 side panels on either side at the front. Remove the shift knob (2 screws behind the small cover plate on the front of the knob - remove with small flat head screwdriver). Remove all remaining screws and the rear section, then slide the center section over the handbrake followed by the front section.

You will see a small switch on the shift lever with 3 wires (Black, Blue and Red). Most likely one or more have become detached, at this point it is best to unsolder any that are still attached because they will likely break in the near future! Remove any old solder and wire from the 3 contacts with the solder gun on the switch and tin each with fresh solder. Strip about 1/8" on each of the 3 wires and tin each with solder. Slide about 1/2-3/4" of the heat shrink tubing onto each wire. Solder the wires back to the swtich in this order:

Black - top
Blue - center
Red - bottom

Start at the top and work down, and after soldering each slide the heat shrink tubing over the solder joint and shrink by applying the solder gun - this will provide better mechanical support and help prevent future breakage.

Reassemble the center console in the reverse order of removal - make sure you have no screws left over!!

Good luck - hope this helps.

Description: Several conditions may cause the error message Machine Error 30, 33, 34 or 35 to be displayed on the LCD. This error may be the result of one of the following:
  • The print head carriage is failing to return to its home position to the far right of the unit.
  • Both of the springs located on each side of the carriage is out of place.
  • The cartridge covers may not be locked securely in place.
Please follow the instructions listed below to correct this problem:
  1. Press the INK button on the Control Panel.
  2. Using the dial pad, press 2 (Replace Ink). The display will prompt you PLS OPEN COVER.
  3. Pull the Scanner Cover release lever located under the Control Panel and lift the Scanner cover. The carriage should move to the left in order to replace the ink. If the carriage does not move to the left, your machine will require service.
    If your machine is still within warranty, click here to locate a Brother Authorized Service Center in your area or click here to obtain contact information for the appropriate Brother Customer Service Center. If you are out of warranty, use the link to locate a Brother Authorized Service Center in your area.
  4. After the carriage moves to the left, press down each cartridge cover and remove all ink cartridges from the machine. There are 2 springs located on each side of the carriage that hold the print head against the carriage assembly. They are thin silver springs approximately 2 1/2 inches, set at an angle.
  5. If the spring is out of place, press the spring back into place. You can use the spring on the opposite side of the carriage as a guide as to the correct position.
  6. If the spring is not out of place, reinstall each ink cartridge.
  7. After installing the ink cartridges, close the covers and verify they are securely locked into place. Your machine then prepares for a head cleaning and goes online. The LCD screen prompts you to verify if a new ink cartridge was inserted for each color you removed. For example, DID YOU CHANGE BLCK 1. YES 2. NO.
  8. Press 2 (No).
Note If you decided to place a new ink cartridge in for any of the colors when uninstalling and reinstalling the cartridges in the above process, press 1 (Yes). The machine will automatically go through a cleaning cycle.

Also this might be handy for you. To reset purge counter

Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the “up arrow” key four times to enter the maintenance mode).
2) Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine’s log information list (function code 80).
3) Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.

Can sirius antennas be cut and spliced back together




If your antenna cable has been cut or severed, it can be repaired without the need for a replacement.

You will need the following things:


Small 600 degree soldering iron and solder.
Liquid flux for soldering the braid.
Small sizes of heat shrink tubing.
Small heat gun.
Small pliers, cutter, and Xacto knife.




1) The first step is to use the Xacto knife to cut both ends of the antenna cable so you have a clean end.

2) Using the Xacto knife roll the cable on a board and gently cut all around the cable to cut the outer insulation. Remove about 1/2 inch of the insulation from each end.

3) Push the braid back to expose the center wire and gently roll the cable and cut the center insulation to expose about 1/10 inch of the center wire. With your small long nose pliers, bend the center wire into a small hook shape.

4) Repeat all the above steps on the other end of the wire.

5) Put a 1 inch piece of heat shrink tubing on one end ( the black piece), and a 1/4 inch piece of heat shrink (the white piece) on the center conductor. Look at the picture to see this.

5) Hook the two ends together. Gently squeeze the hooks closed and solder them together. Be very careful when soldering this. Be quick so you do not apply to much heat and cause the heat shrink tubing to shrink on the side where you do not want it to be.

6) Slide the small white heat shrink to cover the cooled solder joint you just made and use the heat gun to shrink the tubing in place.


7) Now push the braids back together to cover over the connection you just made. Try make the braid smooth together by GENTLY rolling the cable between your fingers. Carefully solder the braid. A little liquid flux on the braid prior to soldering helps the solder flow and makes it look better.

8) Slide the final piece of heat shrink tubing over the braid and shrink it with the heat gun.
