I have an old Apollo Quantum 2521 Overhead Projector. The lamp is working, but it is creating a rainbow effect on the screen. Can you provide some help? Thankyou.

RBE or the RainBow Effect is a common phenomenon experienced by most projectors - generally worsens over time because of slower moving parts inside projector - by the sound of it the color wheel inside your projector could well be slowing down but this effect is quite common and in some people more than others...

Tips on water sports sunglasses

When you're waterskiing, it's imperative that your line of vision is clear. After all, the other skiers, boaters and swimmers count on it. However, between the sun shining and the wind blowing in your face, you don't always see as well as you should. So it's no wonder that more and more waterskiers are investing in water sports sunglasses.<br />A great pair of water sports sunglasses, like Maui Jim sunglasses, will offer great protection against the sun's harmful UV rays, and yet still be versatile enough to perform all of your favorite water activities. Also, with rubber nose grips and saltwater effectiveness, you'll be looking sharp while watching your friends and family ski - and seeing sharply when it's (finally!) your turn to ski. <br />So before you head out to the boat, make sure you grab your pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. You'll not only be protecting your eyes, but you'll help be helping to protect everyone else in the water too.

On my way home we had a heavy rain and I had my gas powered golf cart on the trailer headed home. Now it won't start when I press the gas pedal. Any ideas?

Water probably splashed and got into areas. You may need to park it in the sun and give it a chance to dry out.

Rainbow power head works but canister dont model d4

Chances are the motor died or went bad.
You would have to get a new motor.
You can find one here:

Moisture in Specialized SpeedZone bike computer

the back of the switch will have some residue left over, can stay even once dry. open the unit and clean the contacts. the water has to be getting in somewhere, maybe you could try to seal it some way.

I dropped my phone in the tolit and i took the battery and sd card. i dried it. all 3. then i used a blow drier. then put it in rice. will it work?


Yes it will work, since you have taken out a great quantity of water from it using the blow drier.
The steps to get it to work are:
  1. Remove the back cover,
  2. Then remove the sim card and the scan disc memory card,
  3. Then try to open it up by using a torx screw driver,
  4. then slide an object around the edges of the phone to remove the front cover,
  5. Then blow dry it for a while,
  6. Take note not to get the blower too close to the screen to avoid damages,
  7. Reassemble the phone back together and turn it on.
It will work perfectly fine. Since you have done most of the job, just carry out the rest and turn it on.

Take care and good luck

Suspected moisture in Furuno GPS/Plotter display

You need to determine if it's moisture or damage to the protective coating on the LCD glass. If the screen coating is damaged it will have patches or discoloration that resemble water spots like you see on windows and glasses exposed to hard water. If it's moisture between the glass and LCD you should be able to make out the tiny water droplets that are evenly spread throughout the screen. The only proper fix for a glass with damage to the protective coating is replacement of the bezel assembly. If it's moisture you can try inserting a few silica gel packs inside the unit. Don't try to disassemble the bezel (LCD/Screen) assembly. Just but the gel packs inside the 1650 chassis and give it a day or two. Otherwise, you're looking at factory repaire.

How come the plug ends on my rainbow vacuum turn green when plugged in to the wall.

Do you live in an area with high humidity? This green effect is simply oxidization of the brass prongs. You may want to keep them shiny with a little bit of Scotchbrite tm.. Possibly, dissimilar metals in your wall plugs contacts are causing this slight corrosion. You really should only worry if the vac's plug is getting hot or very warm.

Do you still have condensation, or is the camera just saying you do? how technically skilled are you? Do you feel confident enough to take off the outer cover and let it dry in the sun.
