AnitaLouise, I can fix your camera. I have a C5050 that may not be worth fixing, but I may be able to get a working one between them both. Please E-mail me pishta68 at hotmail.com and we can work something out. I too believe that the C5050 was one of the greatest 5MP digital cameras ever made, with lens quality that is unmatched even today.

Wiring home tanning bed


If you are installing a bed in your home for the first time, you should have a trained technician to do it, or bad results can happen. Be sure the voltage is correct to the bed - very important. All local wiring codes should be followed for safety - you don't want to kill anyone or the bed.

Are there different types of toddler beds or a standard type in different styles?


There are quite a few varying types of toddler beds in the market. The first kind I will mention is a convertible crib. The great thing about a convertible crib is that it will last much longer. Some parents also find that a convertible crib eases the transition phase. Next there is the "captain bed" also known as a storage bed. This bed has built-in compartments everywhere - under the bed frame, in the footboards, even in the headboards. There are other types of toddler beds such as loft toddler beds, futon toddler beds, and platform toddler beds; however I think they are less popular and ultimately less safe for your toddler.

How can I get my dog to sleep in its bed?


First, location is extremely important. The bed should be in the living room. Dogs crave companionship. So, by putting the bed in the living room, where most family members take time to relax, your dog will also find its place in the family on their bed.

How to replace 2001 s10 pickup fuel pump


This is not a full answer, but a tip on an easier way.to get to the pump. Instead of removing the gas tank. Just pull the bed off the truck! I guarantee that it will be easier. I did this on a 2001 S10 and it took less that an hour to remove the bed.
Remove the spare tire, and the tube that the tool to lower the tire goes through. You will need to unplug your tail lights under the back or the bed on both sides. There is also a grounding screw for the tail lights on each side that needs to be removed. Remove the screws that hold the gas tank filler hose to the side of the bed - right by the filler cap. Remove the tailgate (to make the bed lighter). Follow the frame down the length of the bed and you will find the bolts holding the bed on. There should be 6 or 8 bolts. My S10 had 8 bolts and my son's full size Chevy PU had 6 bolts (go figure?). Then just lift the bed off the truck. We did my S10 with 3 people and it had a camper shell and rack on it. My son's full size truck was lifted off with only 2 people. I would suggest 4 people however - one on each corner to make it easier to lift and control.
Replace the pump as described above and then you can start the engine to make sure everything works before setting the bed back on. NOTE: The fuel pump grounds back with the tail light ground. If the engine doesn't start right away, try grounding the wire back by the tail lights. It works like a charm. This is an especially nice way to do it if the gas tank is full! I spent 18 years as a professional mechanic and this is one of the slickest, least known tricks I have come across. I wish I'd known about it when I was wrenching for a living! Cheers!

Suspect the lower drive mechanism is out of time with the upper drive. See your local service agency for repair.
