TS240 – No Ink Cartridge in Transport

We had a customer call because their bank Tellercheck TS240 check scanner wasn’t working. All the lights were lit up correctly; however, it wouldn’t scan. This was a new device and the customer installed the ink cartridge.

In the web browser the check scanner was throwing the error “No ink cartridge in the transport.” The instructions for installing the ink cartridge were to push down the back area till you get a double-click. The user said this did this, but we decided to do it again. After a couple of tries the user heard a click. This totally solved the issue.

We needed to have an Excel spreadsheet of the email addresses we had in global address book group. Here is the best method we found so far.

Razer Lycosa Keyboard Locked Up Computer

We have an employee with a Razer Lycosa keyboard. His Windows 10 machine became unresponsive. The wireless mouse worked fine, but no keyboard input. We rebooted and went through BIOS settings and Advanced Start Up tools; however, none of these fixed the issue.

We put an old USB keyboard in place of the Razer, and everything worked fine. We didn’t spend any time on this issue, but don’t be surprised if you own one and have issues with it.

Drupal Showing HTML Not Content

While making an update to a very slow Drupal site we ended up displaying only the HTML mark up and not the content. This was an easy fix, but took a while because of the slow site.

Just below the content the “Text format” got set to “plain text“. We switched it back to “Full HTML” and this resolved the issue.
