Either the printing default is set to another paper size, possibly Legal, or the guides that hold the paper are too loose. It is telling you to add Letter size paper and is sensing a different size going through it. Go into Settings - Paper.

Make sure your Firmware and Software is up to date

Ativa appears to be a brand associated with Office Depot, with no actual maker. Shredder spares notoriously bad to source. The best bet would be to remove the switch and source it from an electronics component shop, or bypass it altogether.

Mystery machines are difficult to diagnose.

Closing the rear door is the opposite of opening it. They usually have a press-catch on larger machines

I would guess there is no frame output but there are a few reasons or causes of the fault - intermediate frequency (if) perhaps, demodulation, frame oscillator, frame amplifier or field coils.

I doubt pushing anything will fix it - you need to take it to an engineer...

You are probably missing an insulating ring / washer that goes between your bearing and your armature (the shaft on the center part of the electrical motor. The fact that it does not have a grounded plug is not necessarily an indicator of age or safety so don't be too afraid. DeWalt still uses two prong cords to this day. In these tools they offer what is called double insulation, simply non-conductive material that separates electrical components from the user. The part number for the insulating ring is 681623-9. If you ever wanted to ground the tool you don't really need any special switches you just have to attach the grounding line to the metal casing.

Many owners of the Bosch dishwashers perceive h01 (h: 01) or h02 (h: 02) and other signs as an error. But in fact, this is not an error, and you accidentally got into the start-up timer menu (delayed start of washing dishes). In this case, h01 means that washing dishes will start exactly in 1 hour; if the display shows h02, then washing process will begin exactly in 2 hours. As a rule, in most models of dishwashers from Bosch, a delayed start can be set in the range from 1 to 24 hours.

Timer programming You can delay the start of the program in 1-hour steps up to 24 hours.
  1. Close the door.
  2. Switch on ON/OFF switch [1].
  3. Press button [4] + until the digital display [9] jumps to h:01
  4. Press [4] + or - button until the displayed time corresponds with your requirements.
  5. Press START button [6], timer programming is activated.
  6. To delete timer programming, press the [4] + or - button until h:00 is indicated on the digital display [9].
You can change your program selection at any time until the program starts.

This bulb is very fragile. Handle with care. I use tissue paper to touch but gloves should work. Make sure a fan is cooling the bulb when it is on. It gets VERY hot and will burn out if not air cooled. Turn off when not in use to extend life.

It is best to identify hardware by brand and model number when querying. And it would be helpful to know if you are printing by wireless connection or USB cable. Also, it would be nice to know the medium from which you obtained a printer driver --a CD, a manufacturer's site, or from Windows generic printer drivers. That said, it looks like a software problem. Most advice would include uninstalling the software for the printer (such as the driver) and reinstalling such from the manufacturer's site for that brand of printer. However, in this case, there may be additional measures required. Go to the following link and scroll to the bottom. The last reply details a procedure which may fix the problem. It is a more detailed procedure for uninstalling the possibly troublesome software and its effects.

If so then Overload circuit protection is on, means you have an overload problem on your unit, check the speaker cables for correct connection.
