Actually, since I got 2 or 3 less than positive responses to my question I called ILA this morning and changed my order to the braille watch that I've ordered before.  So thanks all for the responses.

Hi all,

I don't know anything about Battery eliminators, but I strongly suggest that you look up your local Ham Radio Assoc. and take some of their courses on electronics. Otherwise you might have a shocking experience.

"Question about Electronics safety tech

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

I bought a battery eliminator. So, when I am recharging it, is it unsafe to inadvertently touch it? Do I need to cover it up with something? also, if I'm connecting parts in an electronic kit, can a mistake be made that would cause damage? Maybe some questions sound stupid, but I don't know completely how electronics work, though I did take a two-week class in hands-on electronics back in 1985 when they had that Radio Shack kit.

Thanks much,

Hi.

You can probably still get cartridges. Get the exact model number of the printer and either put it into google with an ink related search term or call hp with it. which ever you're more comfortable with.

Hi.

My personal experience with quickbooks is not great but i have heard of people who use it.

Setup can be done, but i've never tried actually using it.

Now, if this is quickbooks online, i expect the answer is different although i have even less experience there.

Re: Dot Matrix Printer

Hi.
Believe it or not I actually helped set one of these up for someone recently. This was in a specialized environment where dust can v an issue.
I asjwe a lot of the same questions you did an was told these printers work better in susty places. The printer we set up was the okidata mx320 turbo. I expect it's our of the price range though.
This was a forms printer and would probably not work well with standard paper unless it has the fees strips.

Re: Ink Cartridges for printers?

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

Hi Sharon,

I would think that you could still find ink for your printer. The hp website would be the best place to find out if it is still available. If it is, your printer might need a good cleaning of the print heads and such, but there is really no reason why it shouldn't work just fine. I see no reason to purchase a new one unless you simply want the wireless capabilities. Many of the newer printers sell for very reasonable prices, and as someone stated, it is usually the ink that hits you in the pocketbook. Some of the hp printers are eligible for their instant ink program, which is where you pay for ink on a monthly basis, depending on how much printinting you do. I believe there 3 levels for the program, and it starts at about $2.99 per month. I hope this helps a little.

Michael

Re: Dot Matrix Printer

Eleni Vamvakari
 

Yes. I thought that 9 and 24 pin referred to serial and parallel
respectively, but it was quite odd how this was worded, almost as if
it's a parallel printer having something to do with nine pins. Now
that you have explained the forms to me, those descriptions make
sense! Right now, I do not have a printer on my desk. When I said
"regular printer", I was referring to one that isn't specialised, such
as the types for receipts, labels, etc. To others who may know, can
forms printers be used with regular paper, or are they specifically
designed to work with these sorts of forms with carbon?

Thanks,
Eleni

think the setup might be too tasking and may hardly ever be worth the pain.
Yes, some preprinted forms are tractor-fed with carbon embedded in between

typically three. A good example is the CMS1500 used to submit claims to
the

though, the same types of forms will fit in the tray of just about any
printer and the perforated edges are barely visible anymore.

If you currently have a printer sitting on your desk, that is a regular
printer in my view since you use it for everyday printing tasks.
