What is the polarity of a 12v Black & Decker Drill?


centre pin on plug socket is usually positive...
think I would **** it and see ....if the replacement charger has a charge light it will probably not light if you have reversed polarity. Had the same problem with VHF portables ...I just cut the wire on new charger and tried both options ..reconnected and a bit of tape...voila.
There is little danger to your drill from getting it wrong as long as a the timing is relatively short.

Accidental reversed polarity with an external hard drive


if the board is fried, you can take the platters (discs) out and put in another HD of same make and model to recover data. Will require special tools and patience. Its the only way I know to recover data from a blown HD. PS, use vinyl gloves as to not leave finger prints. and do this in the cleanest area you can find! Im not sure how you managed to reverse the polarity... hope this helps...

Archos av500 hard drive replacement


Downgrade firmware from 1.5.12 to 1.3.12 and then replace the hard drive, it should work. It does not work with firmware versions superior to 1.3.12. If you have 1.5.13 you can downgrade to 1.5.12 using the normal archos update procedure (yes, from 1.5.13 to 1.5.12 you can freely donwgrade using standard offical method). You can find 1.5.12 firmware on the official archos download page. If you need the 1.3.12 version (not available at archos website) it can be retrieved there: http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/232939/archos-av500-portable-dvr-firmware-1.3.12-download.html

Archos AV500 HD Replacement


I have found someone who can replace the hard drive al they will need is the serial# from the HD it also depends on the size of memory you have. They will program the HD and send it to you with the instructions ob how to install. I will post here as soon as I receive the new HD back. So Archos lied saying you cannot replace the HD yourself.I will never buy another Archos product again. I have two the AV500 and the 605 wifi which is a joke with all of the Accessories they want you to purchase.I believe they design the products to fail so you would have to purchase their new products and all of the crazt accessories to get it to do what is supposed to do in the first place.Horrible company
