Fisher Price Music box: to open, remove the four screws from the bottom, open the two parts as wide as possible without using too much force. Using a small flat blade screw driver, insert between the red cover and white top where the wind up knob is located. Pry the red bottom out far enough to allow the ring surrounding the knob to slide under the red bottom. The box is now open.

After repair, and re-assembling, make sure the wider part of the wind up stop wheel faces the front of the player, otherwise the wind up knob catches and slows the mechanism.

When you have taken the case off, if it is running slowly then some WD40 works very well in the clockwork mechanism. Also WD40 the head of the arm. The xylophone in the head is very fiddly to adjust but persevere and once again our 37year old's record player is ready for the grand-children

It just pulls apart, but with a little difficulty because the music box fits in quite snugly. And when it does come apart, surprise - the pieces fall out leaving hardly a clue where they belong. Try to peak in while prying it slightly to note where they go. The parts that fall out include a yellow winder button, a red casing around it (both visible from the outside), and a yellow spoked wheel that rides on the side of the winder button to prevent overwinding. Make sure you try it out completely before reassembling so you don't have to take it apart again to turn something around or reset the spoked wheel. It snaps together a little easier than it comes apart.

Remove 4 screws. Pry open about 1/4 inch, just enough to insert red straw attached to your WD40 nozzle. Lubricate metal parts inside near the stem of the yellow wind-up knob. Lubricate metal wheels under the armature. That did the job for us! Player seems to operate at normal speed.

How to change cabin filter 2011 Lacrosse


I just changed mine yesterday and these tips listed above were unfortunately incorrect.

Step 1 - Open the passenger door
There is a panel that has no screws on the flatside of the dashboard which faces against the closed door at the jam side. Use a body tool and pry the panel carefully exposing the inside area of the glovebox. If possible dont do this in cold weather because the tabs are plastic. Inside the panel you will see one small tab that the glove box has a 1/4 plastic clip seated in the tab.

Step 2 - Open the glove box. Remove the 3 hex screws on the top interior row of the glove box.

Step 3 - At the right and left corners of the bottom of the glove box remove the two front facing screws on the lower hinge.

Step 4- At the very bottom parallel to the floor there are two more hex screws remove those (they hold the plastic vent in place underneath the glove box. Pull the vent downward to release the tabs.
IMPORTANT: Dont forget to go back to step 1 and pull the small tab from the slot in the dashboard cover area ( Inside the panel you will see one small tab that the glove box has a 1/4 plastic clip seated in the tab)

Step 5 - Pull down on the glove box to release the clips.

Step 6 - You will see a black box inside. There are three tabs (right, top, and left) pull them individually to remove the front facing cover. Inside you will see the air filter. Remove and have airflow arrow pointed downward.

Reverse steps to reinstall. Be sure to line up the clips before pressing them back in place. Do not force them!

Good luck. I hope this helps. I did mine on the first attempt with no issues in about 10 minutes (I'm not a mechanic).

Fisher Price Music Box Record Player #995 What size are the hex screws and what should I use to take them out?


I'm not sure what size the hex screws are, but it's a very narrow walled socket or nut driver that you'll need. There's a place online that will sell you the exact tool for $17 or so. Don't waste your money. To do this job, you'll need a few of the clear Bic pens and a candle. Take the ink part out of the pen, then slightly melt the end with the colored cap. Quickly stick the melted end down the hole with the screw. Press hard, then let the melted plastic cool. Then, turn the hex screw. It took me a couple of times to make it work, but it does work, and I didn't have to buy a special tool.

How to change front blower motor in a 2003 dodge caravan


Removal & Installation
CAUTION The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before removing the blower motor assembly. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable, then wait 2 minutes before proceeding with the removal. This will effectively disable the air bag system preventing possible personal injury.
  2. Remove the glove box from the instrument panel

The blower motor is located behind the glovebox, behind the blower motor cover

  1. Remove the A/C-heater blower motor cover.
  2. Disconnect the blower motor wiring connector.
  3. Remove the blower motor wiring grommet and feed the wiring through the blower motor housing.
  4. Remove the blower motor mounting screws.

Once the cover is removed, unplug the electrical connector and push it through the opening in the housing

How to put music on the player, wont connect to computer some reason


first of all, it depends on what mp3 player it is. but there is an obvious first step to ANY of them.
1) do you have it connected to the computer via usb?

Now that we are past the obvious, Here are a couple various solutions based on type of mp3 player it could be:
IPOD:

1) Download Itunes from www.apple.com
2) Install Itunes onto your computer.
3) Once it is installed, connect your Ipod to the computer, and it should register in itunes. Here, you can click on it, and go to your music.
4) Open a separate window with your music folder, and drag files from that window, to the Music area of Itunes. This is easy.
5) when you have all the music you want on your Ipod in the music list, press "synch". It will all go onto your ipod. and

Voila! you have music!!

Sansa:
1) forget rhapsody. its ****, ignore it, ditch it, it will charge you, and you cant even make playlists with it!!!
2) Open Windows Media Player
3) Open your music folder in a separate window
4) Drag and drop songs you want into a windows media player playlist.
5) Synch playlist to sansa.

OR

1) Still forget about rhapsody, it sucks.
2) Go to My Computer
3) Click on Removable Storage device (you should already have it plugged in at this point. the removable storage is said mp3 player)
4) Open a separate window with your music in it.
5) Drag and drop music files from your music folder into the removable storage disk. you wont be able to make playlists this way, but its easier.

Now almost any other mp3 player would work with one of these methods, possibly only with deviance in which program you will use. I hope this was of use to you.

Can't Print on Card


I had the same problem with my 3 year old HP Officejet 5610. Feeding heavy paper or white card stock would result in a paper jam. The card stock would start to feed, but then stop half way. The pinch rollers seemed to spin without advancing the paper, even if the paper was fed one sheet at a time.

Solution: Clean the rubber pinch rollers with isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Partial disassembly/reassembly required.

To access the rollers, remove the scanner plate:
1. Disconnect power, USB, and phone cables.
2. Open up the scanner sheet feeder by tilting it left.
3. Unlatch the scanner scanner feeder so that it opens completely vertical. Latch is on front hinge only.
4. Remove the 4 corner hex screws on the scanner plate. Remove the 2 hex screws on the sheet feeder. (I used a small flat blade screw driver in the hex heads)
4. Lift the plate and sheet feeder away from printer box. Disconnect the 2 flat cable wires from the circuit board.
5. Scrub rubber pinch rollers with alcohol on a swab. Dry thoughly.
6. Reassemble. (NOTE: This is a good time to clean the underside of the glass plate and the scanner head)

Broken on-off switch on Rio 600


They are Hex head screws. You need a small (1.3MM or .050) Hex head bit or Allen wrench. After removing the two screws the case will split. However the problem I'm having is figuring out how to re-attach the switch. It's a very odd connection.

Deleting files from Sansa e250


The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
