How To Fix Error 0x61011beb With HP Printers

Friday, July 15th, 2011

The 0x61011beb error occurs when you try to align the ink cartridges in a HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One Printer. This error will most likely occur due to improper installation of 1 or 2 of the cartridges. The tutorial below will explain how to fix this particular error and prevent it from coming back:

What Causes The 0x61011beb Printer Error

This particular error could be caused by either one of the following conditions:

  • Communication between the cartridges and printer is not happening
  • Printer settings have been changed
  • Drivers between the computer and printer are corrupt

How To Fix The 0x61011beb Printer Error

Step 1 – Disconnect The USB

  • Plug it directly into the wall, rather than into a UPS.
  • Verify that the unit is switched on. Disconnect the USB/Ethernet cable from the All-in-One and also disconnect power cable from All-in-One and also from wall outlet.
  • Wait 30 seconds.
  • Plug in the power cable to All-in-One and also to wall outlet.
  • Check for the functionality.
  • Try your print job again

Step 2 – Update HP Printer Drivers

It is recommended that you update all HP Printer drivers as this will ensure your computer and HP Printer can successfully communicate between one another and work together with minimal errors. This can be done by visiting HP’s website and downloading the latest drivers from it.

Step 3 – Clean Out The Registry

One of the big causes of HP Printer errors is through the “registry” database of your computer. This is a large database which stores vital information & settings for your PC, and is used continually to help Windows to read the files, settings & options that it needs to run. Although the registry is one of the most important parts of every Windows system, it’s continually causing a large number of problems thanks to the way it will often become corrupted and unreadable. This is the cause behind many HP Printer errors, and needs to be resolved by using a reliable “registry cleaner” application.

This step is best completed by downloading Frontline Registry Cleaner, and letting it clean out any of the problems that your system may have inside.

How To Fix The 80004005 Error

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

The 80004005 error occurs when you try to use ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) or ODBC to connect to a Microsoft Access database. The error you may receive will look something like this:

“The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file ‘(unknown)'”

or

“Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error ‘80004005’
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access 97 Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file ‘(unknown)’. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.”

What Causes The 80004005 Error

There are several causes of the 80004005 error, some of which include:

  • The account that Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is using (which is usually IUSR) does not have the correct Windows NT permissions for a file-based database or for the folder that contains the file.
  • The file and the data source name are marked as Exclusive.
  • Another process or user has the Access database open.

How To Fix The 80004005 Error

Step 1 – Check The Permissions On The File

It is recommended that you check the permissions on the file and the folder. Make sure that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files. Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database, but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT folder.

Step 2 – Verify The File And Data Source

It is important to verify the file and data source because the file has to be in proper working order and must be protected from damage or corrupt. Other wise your computer will experience some difficulty trying to use the correct files.

Step 3 – Close Any Visual InterDev Projects

It is recommended that you close down any other Visual InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database. This way your computer won’t be confused and will be able to work properly.

Step 4 – Clean Out The Registry

One of the big causes of 80004005 errors is through the “registry” database of your computer. This is a large database which stores vital information & settings for your PC, and is used continually to help Windows to read the files, settings & options that it needs to run. Although the registry is one of the most important parts of every Windows system, it’s continually causing a large number of problems thanks to the way it will often become corrupted and unreadable. This is the cause behind many 80004005 errors, and needs to be resolved by using a reliable “registry cleaner” application.

Rtvscan.exe Error Fixes Tutorial

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

The Rtvscan.exe file is a part of the Norton Antivirus program. Errors in this file are typically caused by you not having the latest DirectX version in your PC. This is most likely because you have failed to update your version of Direct X. If it’s out of date, then certain programs, including Norton Antivirus, may not be able to run properly. The following message will be displayed on your computer when you have this error:

  • “Rtvscan.exe – Application Error: The instruction at “0x77fcc8e1” referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be written or read. Click OK to terminate the program, or cancel to debug the program.”

What Causes RTVScan.exe Errors?

You will typically experience errors with the rtvscan.exe when you are running an outdated DirectX version (normally older than DirectX 8.1) in your system, which makes your PC use too much RAM and memory, which is what leads to this particular error. Otherwise, the error may be caused by faulty registry settings. You need to solve any issues that are causing the error. This tutorial will teach you how you can repair these issues in your PC.

How To Fix RTVScan.exe Errors

Step 1 – Update The DirectX Version On Your PC

The first thing that you need to do when you have this error in your computer is to update the DirectX version in your system.  To do this, first click on Start then choose All Programs,. Next, select Windows Update. Afterwards choose Custom updates and then view any entries in the “Optional Software” field.   When you see the DirectX updates appear on your screen, install them.

Step 2 – Rename The “SoftwareDistribution” Folder Of Your PC

Another way to resolve this error in your PC is to rename the SoftwareDistribution folder in your system. The steps for doing this are explained below.

  • Log-on to your PC as an administrator
  • Click on Start then choose All Programs
  • Next select Accessories
  • Right click Command Prompt then choose “Run as administrator
  • Type “net stop WuAuServ” in the “Administrator: Command Prompt” window then press Enter
  • Again click on the Start button then type “%windir%” in the Start Search box. Next, press Enter
  • Locate the “SoftwareDistribution” folder in the opened folder
  • Right click on the folder, then choose Rename
  • Rename the folder by typing “SDold
  • Restart the Windows Updates service in your PC by typing “net start WuAuServ” in the opened window.

Step 3 – Re-Install Programs Causing The Error

One other likely reason as to why this error will surface on your PC is due to Windows’ failure to process some of the files and settings in a problematic program.  For this matter, you need to remove the “guilty” application or applications from your computer to restore normalcy inside your system.  To accomplish this, follow the steps that are outlined below:

  • First click on Start afterwards choose Control Panel
  • Next select Add/Remove Programs
  • From a list that will be displayed on your screen, locate the “guilty” application then click on the Uninstall tab
  • If an uninstall wizard pop-ups on your screen, follow the steps that it will display.
  • You can now restart your PC to refresh the settings in your system
  • Reinstall the program on your computer by inserting the CD installer on your CD/DVD drive
  • Finally, test the application and see if it is working properly

Step 4 – Clean Out The Registry

The registry is one sector in your system that constantly produces tons of errors.  This happens because it easily gets overloaded with information.  Unfortunately most of the data that gets stored here is useless, using up your computer’s resources unnecessarily.  When the volume of files in your registry hits a critical level, the speed of your PC will dramatically slow down, programs will not be loaded properly and errors will surface.   Also, the longer you use your PC, the more data that gets stored in this portion of your system.  And so unless you regularly check the status of your registry, issues here are inevitable.  It is for this reason that you should take it upon yourself to clean out this part of your computer from time to time to free up some space. However, it is not recommended that you do this manually as doing so might cause important files in your PC to be deleted.  What is advisable that you do is to use an automated registry cleaner.
