Dude irfz44n is the transistor number... it is quite a common transistor... ask for it in the nearby electronics shop and fix the problem...

What key strokes are used on Hp12 C for square root calculation?

Put in the number you want the square root of, then press g [square-root].

g is the blue shift key (third key from the left on the fourth (bottom) row of the keyboard). square-root is on the 1/x key (second key from the left on the second row of the keyboard).

Bantam BC6 battery charger analyzer Break Down fix

**Edited 1/18/10 - Additions at bottom**
I had purchased a used, working well, Bantam BC6 battery charger/discharger/analyzer... quite a fancy & high-tech unit if I do say so myself.
Well about 3 weeks ago when I was doing a multiple charge-discharge test on a battery pack, as part of the discharge cycle, the unit beeped, stopped the discharge, and displayed "Break Down" on the screen. Looking that up on the bantam website and/or related forums, the recommendation is that this thing should be sent back to Korea for repair... not happenin.

So, what I assumed, is that the main heat-source in that whole unit was a transistor labeled IRFZ44N, and that it had somehow gone bad.
On ebay I typed in that part number and got a package of 5 coming this way.

With a few minutes of soldering activity I had the old, dead transistor removed from the board, and soldered in the new IRFZ44N transistor.

What to do & What to look for:
Disassembly - something like 5 screws located on the right-hand face(side where positive & negative charging cables and li-ion charging interface come out from) need to be removed and then the bottom of the unit can be slid out from the rest of the case. After the bottom is removed, you should notice two similar looking objects sticking up from the bottom of the board... these are both transistors. One is a 5 Volt voltage regulator which is located towards the center of the board. The other is THE transistor that you are looking for, the IRFZ44N - it is located near the circuit board edge and is closest to the panel you unscrewed first(assuming you unscrewed the right panel).
Orientation is critical in the re-installation/soldering of the new transistor... the back & shiny face of the transistor should be towards the black/negative charging receptacle; the black & bulging side of the transistor should be towards the red/positive charging receptacle.
Once the bottom is slid back over the newly installed transistor, try to make certain that the back of the transistor is in contact with the blue-ish thermal pad, and that is in contact with the metal case bottom after you slide it back in.... that is this transistors only way to dissapate the heat.

If this transistor fails and the unit breaks down again, I can picture myself setting up a more active method for cooling it... a fan or larger heatsink or something.

**1/18/10 Edit Addition**

Well it was initially embarrassing to discover that although the BC6 appeared to be functioning flawlessly, given a full day of discharging a battery pack... it was obvious that it was not discharging the pack(the voltage never dropped).
With a little Ohm-meter testing it was discovered that a 0.5 Ohm resistor which connects to one of the legs of the IRFZ44N burnt out; the resistor was reading over 10,000 Ohms. The resistor which burned out had R500 on it, and after testing the two R100 resistors next to it with an Ohm-meter and finding out that they are 0.1 Ohms, I made the assumption that the R500 should be 0.5 Ohms.


The picture shows the location of the burnt out .5 Ohm resistor(circled in yellow - right side of picture) and the part number & specs of the mouser-ordered replacement part(yellow rectangle around the area).

The dimensions of the resistor(original one and the one I replaced it with) are: .125" x .25"; the height doesn't really matter much, but it was .065" or less. The printed label on the new resistor is R50F - not that it matters that much, the 0.5 Ohms and 1 Watt power handling matter more than the label.

Since I haven't invested in any desolder tools, I ended up using two soldering irons, at once, to melt the solder on both sides of the dead resistor and get it off the board before things cooled.

Now, and with a few days of testing for verifications purposes, I can say the new 0.5 Ohm resistor has allowed this very useful BC6 battery analyzer to function like it originally did and always should.

Here's a picture of the original R500 resistor...

Excel Spreadsheet question

cells are referenced by column and row. columns use a letter reference and rows use a number reference. to reference pages use the page name. For example if you are entering a formula in a cell on a page named sheet2 and part of the information is located on the page named sheet1, you would use a reference as follows:

sheet1!C3 This reference is for the cell on the page named sheet1 in the third column and the third row.

Hope this helps

Value of a transistor at the amplifier sction

Transistors don't really have values, just a number on them. Most Japanese transistors are numbered with a letter first, A, B, C, K, and then a number. When searching for a replacement you add the this at the start "2S" so 2SB500 for one marked B500. If you can't read a number due to damage, with stereo amps the two channels are the same. So if the left channel transistor has burnt up look at the right channel one, you will quickly see the parts around it will be arranged the same as the blown channel.

If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX3200 is turned on and not printing, and the Error light is off. Load plain, letter-size paper in the sheet feeder. Press a Menu button until you see Head Alignment, then press the Color Copy button to print an alignment page. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical lines most precisely printed on top of each other. You may need to use a magnifying glass or loupe. maint.6.7.1.jpg Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, and 3. (In this example, pattern 8 is the best in each row.) Press the + or - button to select the number of the best pattern for the first row, then press the Color Copy button. Repeat this step for the second and third rows. Note: If you select a pattern other than 8 in any row, that pattern becomes pattern #8 the next time you align the print head. When you’re finished, press the Stop button.

How to get all balance sheet entries tally to excel

This is a very handy process when you're totaling or subtotaling columns. On the cell that you want the 'total' in type '=sum(column letter row number),(column letter row number). The first 'column letter row number' is where you want the first cell to be started in the total factor and the second 'column letter row number) is the last cell you want added in the total factor. The help (?) section is good at explaining formulas. Hope this helps, keep this process handy if you use Excel much because it'll be helpfull each time you subtotal or total columns.

Component for amplifier

All of the components with the IRFZ44N part numbers are the same. The rest of the information is the date/manufacturing code and isn't really important (although they should match if they were all used in the power supply). Digikey has them. The new lead free version is IRFZ44NPBF. The rectifier ->
