If this is a inkjet printer, it could be that if you dont print very often the cartridges could simply be drying out. If this is the case I would just printing at least one page per day. Sometime you can remove the cartridges and shake them vigorously and reinsert the cartridges.


Before shaking the cartridge you may want to cover the cartridge with something so that the ink wont fly out.

    We have Epson ink jet printer. It worked fine when we got it last month but now the pictures are really awful - the colors are blurring and running together and there are recurring horizontal streaks...

    Maybe the ink cartrigde is running out. Get sure that the cartrigde has enough ink, if it has not then reload it. If it has enough ink, then review that the printhead be clean, (you could clean it by using Isopropyl alcohol), then you can use the tools included in printer software to align or maintain cartrigdes. If this does not fix the problem, then replace the cartrigde.

    Lights dont work and makes bad noise over air

    Your problem does not seem to be specific enough fo me, when you talk about the "board." The first thing I would suggest is to make sure the power going to the CB is clean, like from the ignition or directly from the battery, that may eliminate the noise. On the color change issue, I can suggest one of 3 things, open the case and replace the light unit, live with it, or replace it. Overall, I would say if you do need to change the board you were talking about and would need a tech to do it,along with the light issue, it may be best to move on, and purchase a new or used unit.
