How to fix an HP Printer using Oxy-Acetylene

All I wanted to do was print one damn page that I can have copied to make labels for my Benderbrau beer on my little used HP printer and the bloody thing wouldn’t work. Paper kept sticking, the ink cartridges were gummed up and eventually the thing stopped working and wouldn’t switch on. I got a little annoyed that it was broken so I fixed it. With my oxy-acetylene welding/cutting torch. Yes, it has probably cost me more that the printer was worth in oxygen/acetylene …

    Not all terrorist are muslims, not all everyone is terrorists but only closed minded individuals like yourself can conceive of americans as terrorists as they have been proven but it’s a sad state of affairs when a conversation have become childish in their thinking.

    Those countries who have been invaded by american, english and other countries do need be reminded that when for the longest time when we were ..

    meaning america didn’t poke their nose into other countries affairs we didn’t get attacked but yet we did and the end even if it didn’t justify killing innocent people in their campaign ..radical muslims both of many different nationalities acted upon the monarchy trying to force themselves upon a country internal turmoils. Well enough of talking like adult to a bunch of children, hopefully when some child like stunt blows off fingers or toes won’t involve some innocent person in the process.

    We are all responsible… even the people who live in New Zealand? You don’t seem to address that fact… Or any other actual FACTS.

    Could you point out where exactly you had any intelligent comments? I seem to remember something about cheese sandwiches… I agree they’re tasty, but any four year old can pretty much master that topic.

    You’re right – not all terrorists are Muslim (capital “M”)- but the ones who attacked us WERE Muslim… and we happen to be talking about the people who attacked us. So… what was your point?

    Also, did you mean “individuals like yourself CAN” or “CAN’T”… It’s hard to understand what you’re saying with the general lack of grammar, capitalization, and punctuation.

    Aaah, the old “The US should mind its own business” argument. So, if your neighbour is beating his wife and testing poisons on his step children you wouldn’t call the police? You would just “mind your business”. Europe and the US “minded its own business” before WWII. We let Adolf Hitler build up his military and begin exterminating Jews. As a result, he took over most of Europe and millions of people died. Should we have minded our own business then too?

    wow, this thread is really hard to follow, I think people have been deleting their comments. However, I’m glad to see the topic of the last few weeks die.

    regardless, awesome video, I think the initial problem might have been your little actuator gears there on the left. They move the ink cartridge from side to side. If you’d just focused your weld on that it would have done the job, although this technique works well, too.

    Figured you couldn’t win an argument in English so you chose Italian, eh? But repeating the definition of metal illness in another language does not a won argument make. You may also want to look up “cognitive dissonance”, and contemplate its applicability to your holding the view that countries should mind their own business whilst also loving your “freedom from 1776″… to which we can partially thank the French, when they didn’t mind THEIR own business. Ever study history?

    I have a HP C4385 printer right here that has caused more FIGHTS in my house!
    NEVER EVER will I buy another HP printer, this one here is only 13 months old and honest we NEVER EVER printed even 75 pages from it! I had it working then I didn’t, then like 3 in the morning pages are coming out all by themselves.
    HP printers SUCK ! HP you’ll never get another nickel towards printer CRAP FROM ME! I shouldn’t need a MASTERS DEGREE in COMPUTER SCIENCE to keep a printer running! HP SUCKS!

    Global warming is the biggest farce ever hoisted on humanity. Also, you need to lighten up. I wouldn’t have used the fire extinguisher. But it was a good fix.

    well. it works better now than it did when it wasnt burnt.

  20. bikemech121

    You should have used a wet cloth on the lid to stop the heat from distorting it, without the lid dust may enter and ruin the quality of the print. What size of nozzle did you use and did you piss on it before or after you burned it?

  21. DasAntiNaziBroetchen

    the cherry on the cake would be if you would have pissed on it in the end! XDD

    btw, does it work now?^^

  22. richsmile376

    lol, dumbass snuffs out the torch. Obviously you can’t fix your printer and apparently not too much better operating your torch. Thanks for burning that plastic, whereas it could’ve been recycled. Now I can breath just a littler worse thanks to you.
