When i use the drill it smokes real bad where the batt. connects
I was putting up a shelf, trying to get a stubborn screw in the wall and the hammer drill XRP started to smoke when i set it down. Now everytime i push the lever (even just to open up the end to put the bit in)it starts to smoke. What broke, can i fix it? and where do i get the parts from?

You have a short in your drill motor. I would not recommend using it as it is possible for the battery to explode.
DeWalt is probably the best made drill motor. I would look to sending it back to the factory for repairs. Run the internet for DeWalt and get a phone # to call them. You never know, this may be a problem the factory may fix for free.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Exhaust manifold bolts are stubborn at times use a good penetrating oil let sit then use a hammer 2 lbs and tap head of bolt shocking the threads to loosen them up. then try tightening first then loosen if still stubborn soak again then repeat sometime with a wrench and applied torque to bolt while hitting it will loosen them. good luck drilling out broken bolts is a expert task. so time is on your side right now be patient.
I like the plastic zip-it anchor because it is pretty strong for towel rack or shelf with a few books etc, It simply drills flush into the wall and then you can use a regular pan-head or drywall screw to connect shelf to zip it. Later the zip it can unscrew and hole is filled easily.
Wall dog is nice for 1 step into drywall. Lightweight shelf, with 2 small books and vase..
Toggle bolt for heavy shelves, But requires good sized 1/2" hole drilled first, and takes a few skill techniques.
Yes you will need a stud finder and a drill . Find you're studs in the wall. Mark them. Then you're gonna want to locate we're you're gonna want you're tv. The height. Put you're mount up to the wall making sure the whole that will holding the screws that go into the wall are over you're studs. Get a marker mark the wholes. Then get you're drill and drill in you're screws. If the screw are real thick then I would juggest drilling pre holes this way you're studs do not crack
There is suppose to be a flat head Left hand thread chuck screw in there. It may have fallen out. You will not be able to put the jaws back into the chuck. You will have to replace the chuck with a new one. If you make sure that the chuck screw is not there you can remove the chuck with a couple of steps. Make sure the drill is in it's lowest gear. Use a strap wrench or some large vise grips on the chuck. If there is still one jaw in the chuck make sure it is all the way open and locking the collar to the chuck. The chuck will come off in the regular lefty loosey configuration. It may be stubborn. If this is the case, You may have to cut the collar off the chuck and use a pipe wrench. Or bring it to a professional to get it changed out.
Your battery could say its good by just testing voltage,but when a load is put on it , its a different story. My dewaltbatt. did the same thing I opened up the batt. case and there was 12 "C" sized batteries inside linked together with little metal strips. I bought 12 rechargeable "C" batts. and carefully drilled where the metal strips are soldered, changed out batt. and re solder. It's been over a year now and still drilling . Also you should do this one batt. at a time so you don't put one in the wrong order .
To take a chuck off of your drill open it up all the way. Inside there's a screw that you have to take out. It has to be turned clockwise to get it out. You may need to struggle with it a bit because it's usually really on there tight. Some folks even use a second drill to loosen it up and that's a really good idea if you have access to one. Once you get the stubborn little screw out, put an Allen wrench in the spot where the bit would fit in. If you can't turn it--and you probably won't be able to--then try using a rubber mallet to (gently) hit the arm of the Allen wrench to get it to turn. Then you should be able to just take it out. Put the new chuck into the drill. Add a few twists of the Allen wrench in the opposite direction. Tighten it up good. Put the screw back in place and also tighten that up good. The drill has a lot of vibration and if these aren't tight, it'll cause problems down the road. Your drill, expertly fitted with your brand new chuck, should now be good to go.
I just changed the chuck on my 18 volt xrp half inch hammer drill,yes first you must remove the torx screw with #15 torx bit,note this is a left handed thread screw,knowing the bad chuck was bad I added some heat from a propane torch to the chuck then making sure it was in 1st gear i took some vise grips and the chuck is screwed on with normal right handed threads,it broke loose (was stubborn but needs a lot of torque )ahhhhhh wat a pain.
After removing the screw and inserting the allen wrench shift the drill to the LOW position and turn the clutch to the drill only position. Use an allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity so that it will not flex when hitting it with a mallet. Sometimes they are stubborn because of the torque but this should work. Put the allen wrench at about a 30deg angle and hit the wrench. I support the chuck on a workbench or a block of wood will do fine. The chuck has standard threads.
