My Samsung Clp-315 color laser printer showed me a red online led. Because this means general error you need to connect it to the pc to see what the problem is in the Samsung Smart Panel. My printer is normally connected to a printer server so the it’s not right away clear what the error was.
Smart Panel told me that there was “Toner waste bin full or not present” error, strange because there was a bin and it wasn’t full.
In the past the printer was transported without the cap on the waste bin, during that moment there was some toner spilled in the printer.
This toner was now blocking the light sensor and therefore the printer was thinking that the bin was full.
After cleaning it all was working fine again.
I think this same solution can work for other Samsung printers from the CLP-3xx series, give it a try.
For the second time the light controller of my Kymco S8 is broken.
You expect that Kymco improves bad designed parts, but unfortunately the replacement part is broken now again. The light controller will cost here in The Netherlands around €65, a lot of money for something you not really need.
The light controller will dim you light’s when the engine is running at idle speed. It’s not exactly clear why this is done but they say that it is to comply with the Euro 2 norm. Less pollution when the engine is running at idle speed.
When the controller breaks down you don’t have light anymore, no dim light and no high beam. When the blue high beam light on your dashboard is working you can almost be sure that the controller is broken.
To bypass the light controller and not alter your cable wiring you can insert some 8mm (outside measured) “fork crimp socket” in the plug that was going to the controller.
Be sure to bridge the blue wire with the blue wire and the white one with the white one.
Fork should insert easy, but you should feel that it’s making perfect contact.
The other 3 wires are for the power supply for the controller and the 3e single wire is coming from your cdi to tell the controller the rpm.
You don’t need them anymore.
To get it all mechanical stable and to prevent short circuit to some metal parts, finish it with some tape or heat shrinking tube.
I was forgotten the password and ip address for my Chinese Ip Camera. Tried everything, but it was impossible to enter the camera again.
Most cams and other ip device’s have a reset button to “reset to factory default” but this cam not.
With the help of Wireshark the ip adres was found looking at the broadcast the cam did.
Looking at this youtube clip is was clear it can be done with a tool called ResetConfig_V2.
Easier said then done. Looking for this tool trough all Chinese webpages was not that easy because I can’t read any word Chinese and google translate also not.
After some search finally I found the tool.
It worked great for me, was not that difficult to reset the ip camera after I changed the language to English in the config.ini file.
