    On the side of the laptop is a hole you put the power cord in. The metal rod that the cord should attach to became disconnected and when I tried to put the power cord in, it got pushed back into the pc. I have been told the solder disconnected so it moves now and the power cord adapter no longer comes in contact with it.

The plug prong broke on my Electrolux Epic 6500 SR vacuum. I cut it off and was going to replace it with a new plug. However, I mistakenly rewound the cord and it went all the way into the body.

You will likely have to install a new cord reel. Cord reels have a long tightly wound steel spring which can fly out causing injury if you attempt to take it apart.

Door wont open

On most of these the hook latches inside can be released once the unit is apart--may require special bits to get it apart as they use them to prevent average people from trying to get inside.


or have a shop look at it.

I bought two First Alert 24 hour timer with clock units some time in the past, but never opened them for use. Now I have opened one of them and the inner pieces are all scattered inside of the unit. The...

First Alert timers have prefix numbers and look similar to Woods promotional timers.

Searching First Alert site turns up no timers, which makes me think they have a timer packaged for them. Why they select promotional timers probably reflects need for retail price point. Searching for your model number turns up no on-line sellers, but does turn up fixya problems about First Alert timers ... which may be why you're here on promise of manuals and repairs.

Woods makes a top-line 2-pack 24-hour timer that sells on Amazon:
These timers have 2-prong outlet, and they will NOT fall apart.

Amazon sells single-pack timers with 3-prong outlet: for 24-hour and 7-day

That being said, I've tested these timers.
Except for some brands of box-type timers, timers today are one-piece apparatus that have no repair parts. Bust it and throw it away.
Plug-in wall timers are not supposed to fall apart, or even come apart.
It sounds like first timer out of package is defective.
Sorry for the loss, and frankly I am going to contact First Alert and ask why they don't support their timer customers with manuals and information.

Toshiba satellite r15-S829 has no sound at all

The socket on the motherboard was physical damaged, you can't fix it by your self but component level technician only. so you better buy a USB sound converter to make sound out form USB port of the laptop rather to fix the motherboard.
