Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous

Getting stuff cheaper

When you're shopping for something specific, look in another department to see if you can find it cheaper... for example, at walmart, if you want to buy one of those usb things to plug into your car cigarette lighter, first thought would be electronics or automotive... look in both places to see which one is cheaper...look in the clearance section in both spots....also, in the electronics dept, at the one where i live...there is a little cardboard display way in the back that has usb cords, usb t thingies for your cig lighter, etc for $5...another good example is with craft stuff...if youre looking to buy some markers, check the stationery dept too...you might find what youre looking for for cheaper...or even those little foam and double sided mounting squares... look in the hardware dept. :)

Within a specific department I've created, I've added several categories. I know how to add items to departments but I am having trouble adding items to the specific categories. What steps do


You have the order backwards. Top order is categories such as FOOD or LIQUOR. Then comes Departments such as APPETIZERS, ENTREES, DESSERT. Then items like RIBEYE STEAK, BAKED POTATO, SALAD. And categories are entirely optional. They only come into play if needed to group departments on certain reports. They don't display, just departments and items.

I am not a techy but many years ago we purchased (and use) aYamaha HTR-5740. We never used the headphones but my husband has lost quite a bit of his hearing so he turns the volume really really high. Where can I purchase headphones?


You don't need any particular model of headphones/earphones for a receiver. Just go to any hi-fi or department store, a Walmart for example, and find something in the price range you like, keeping in mind that if they're -really- low-priced then they're probably not very good, but you should be able to find a decent set of headphones between $20 and $40. Most headphones these days are sold with the 2mm diameter "mini-plug" at the other end. But most often, a receiver such as you have, will have a 1/4" headphone input socket on the front panel, much larger than the mini-plug diameter. So you will also need a 1/4"-to-mini plug adapter, which often is sold with the headphones, but can be bought separately as well.

tv bracket came loose and was hanging by cable, now cable does not work.


It is most likely that the end of the cable pulled out from the wire just far enough to cause a poor connection. Replace that cable and you should be ok. Take the old one to a radio shack or a walmart electronics department and they will help u. walmart will be cheaper.
