Hey walter,

  • Printhead appears to be missing, not detected or incorrectly installed

    hp officejet 6699 won't print - gives message "printhead appears to be missing, not detected or incorrectly installed."   I have unplugged as instructed and that did not work.  I replaced all of the cartridges and that did not work.  It's over a year out of warranty and I don't know where to take it.  I didn't want to have to buy a new one just yet.  Is approx 2 years the life of an all-in-one now??   Can anyone tell me what to try?  Thanks!

    Hi pip3, Can you remember what you were doing when the error occured? Was there a specific event that triggered the message? Did you unplug the printer while it was switched on to reset it (documented here)? Please let me know if you resolve your issue, otherwise I will try to help you troubleshoot further. Many Thanks,Francheska

  • I tried to restored my iPad1's iOS5 to factory setting. There are error messages. Now my iTunes could not detect my iPad anymore. How can I proceed from here?

    Hi All,
    I have problems with iOS5 installed on my iPad1.
    After successfully installing the new iOS5, my iPad1 apps are jumbled up with my wife's apps.  Some of my paid apps are missing.
    So, i tried to restore to factory default.  Now, my iTunes could not detect my iPad, and my iPad only shows the picture "to connect iPad to iTunes".
    I restarted my iMac and checked that all softwares are up to date.
    Please advise.
    Many thanks.

    If you restored from a backup, you simply restored the corrupt files again.
    You could find the corrupt file through a slow process of eliminating apps and data - removing all content - and then syncing content back again - slowly adding apps back on - until the problem surfaces again - and the you could pin down the last apps or apps that you just added as being the problem apps/files. You may find the corrupt file - and you may not.
    Your backups can be deleted by going to iTunes on you computer and go to Edit>Preferences>Devices. You will see your backups/backups in that window. Click on the backup and then click on delete backup - if that is what you really want to do.

  • HP Officejet 6700 Premium - Error message: The printhead appears to be missing ...

    Our printer have worked fine for I think 18 months, but now I keep getting a message of "the printhead appears to be missing, not detected, orincorrectly installed".
    I have switched the machine on and off and I have reinstlalled the  ink cartrigeed and checked to make sure they were all installed correctly but still I am unable to print.
    Any suggestions?

    Hello @Utti , and welcome to the HP Forums!
    I see you're experiencing printhead issues.  I would like to try and help with that.
    I would recommend removing the ink cartridges from the printer, and performing a power reset.  Disconnect the power cord from the printer and the power outlet, then wait 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, plug the printer back in. Ensure you plug the printer directly to a wall outlet. Make sure to bypass any sort of surge protector or power bar.
    I would also suggest plugging the printer power into a different wall outlet.
    Another tool you can utilize would be this document on A 'Missing or Failed Printhead' Error Message Displays on the Printer or on the Computer.
    Good luck and please let me know the results of your troubleshooting steps. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums!

    You probably need to either uninstall and reinstall itunes or to download the apple application support by itself
    you can download the itunes http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here
    then to do a complete uninstall / reinstall follow these instructions http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923
    you could also use 7zip to extract the individual installer for apple application support from the itunes setup file http://www.7-zip.org

  • I have an error message "page_bottom_overlay-2.png" which comes up when I try to publish.  There is a large X with a Question mark in the middle over the entire background of the page.  The error message says the file is missing.  I did not delete files.

    This is probably one of the files that is required by the template you are using.
    These files are inside the iWeb app. Control click the iWeb app icon and select "Show package contents".
    You need to dig down through the folders and files to find what you want...

    If the file is missing you would need to re install the iWeb app...

    I recently updated my iPad and when I went back to read a book that I had purchased I'm getting error messages and whole chapters are missing.  I tried re-syncing with my mac book and nothing changed.  Any help to restore my book completely?

    Try a system reset.  It's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until the screen blacks out or you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If that doesn't work, you'll need to do a time-consuming "Restore."

  • Error message "Live file system repair is not supported."

    System won't boot. Directed to Disk Utility to repair but get error message "Live file system repair is not supported."  Appreciate all help.
    Thanks.

    I recently ran into a similar issue with my Time Machine backup disk. After about 6 days of no backups - I had swapped the disk for my photo library for a media project; I reattached the Time Machine disk and attempted a backup.
    Time Machine could not backup to the disk. Running Disk Utility and attempting to Repair the disk ended up returning the "Live file system repair is not supported" message.
    After much experimentaion with disk analysis softwares, I came to the realization that the issue might be that the USB disk dock wasn't connected directly to the MacBook Pro - it was daisy-chained through a USB Hub.
    Connecting the USB disk dock directly to the MBP and running Disk Utility appears to have resolved the issue. DU ran for about 6 hours and succesfully repaired the disk. Consequently, I have been able to use that Time Machine disk for subsequent backups.

  • I have been using itunes on my windows based pc for years but since installing the latest itunes update I have been getting the error message A required itunes component is not installed. Please reinstall itunes. (-42404)

    I have been using itunes on my windows 64 bit laptop for years but since downloading the latest itunes 10.7 update whenever I opened itunes the error message 'A required itunes component is not installed. Please reinstall itunes (-42404)'
    Itunes would still load and play music in my library and I could still sync my ipod but when loading a CD itunes would not recognise the album/tracks and I would need to type them manualing after uploading.
    I have just bought the new iphone5 and went to sync the phone with itunes. itunes recognises the iphone when plugged in via the usb port or when wi fi is turned on but itunes will not allow the phone to sync.
    I spent over an hour the other morning speaking to apple customer support and have ensured I have administer right and that UAC is turned off.
    I was taken through msconfigure and adjusted the startup tab but still no joy.
    In the end I was e-mailed instructions on how to uninstall and then reinstall itunes and component parts.
    Now that I've uninstalled itunes when I try reinstalling I get the following messages during the download.
    The 1st message is;
    'The installer has insufficient privileges to modify this file C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application  Support\Web kit.resources\inspector\Images\Spinner Inactive Selected.gif.'
    When I click ok the next message that appears sometime later during the install is;
    Service 'Apple Mobile Device' (Apple Mobile Device) Failed to start Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.
    The options I have are to abort, retry or ignore. If I retry the same message comes back and if I  abort or ignore the download continues and I then get the following message:
    'Apple Application Support was not found. Apple Application Support is required to run itunes Helper. Please uninstall itunes, then reinstall itunes again. Error 2'
    After attempting to reinstall itunes only some components were installed however itunes would not open.
    It would appear many people have experienced problems with this latest download!

    'The installer has insufficient privileges to modify this file C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\Web kit.resources\inspector\Images\Spinner Inactive Selected.gif.'
    That one's consistent with disk/file damage. The first thing I'd try with that is running a disk check (chkdsk) over your C drive.
    XP instructions in the following document: How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP
    Vista instructions in the following document: Check your hard disk for errors
    Windows 7 instructions in the following document: How to use CHKDSK (Check Disk)
    Select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, or use chkdsk /r (depending on which way you decide to go about doing this). You'll almost certainly have to schedule the chkdsk to run on startup. The scan should take quite a while ... if it quits after a few minutes or seconds, something's interfering with the scan.
    Does the chkdsk find/repair any damage? If so, can you get an install to go through properly afterwards?
