    I been trying to setup an hp inkjet printer but it keeps printing out
    green ink. I checked the power outlet with a tester and found it was
    not hooked up right (reverse polarity, is this the problem? I tried to
    look this up in myer's book but did not find an anwer. Also what is the
    best way to clean the ink cartridge holder?

    I usually use a qtip and a bit of alcohol to clean them. The reversed
    polarity could be a problem for lots of equipment. If you can figure out
    how to turn the outlet off it's no problem to change.

  3. A reversed plug is probably not the problem, but it can be a big, big
    problem if the device using its power is attached to something plugged
    into a properly-polarized outlet. It is also a safety hazard, and
    should be dealt with. In Canada, at least, green is earth/ground,
    white is neutral and attaches to the silver/white terminal, and black
    is hot, and attaches to the copper terminal.
