1. Try to go to a Staples or other electronics store and copy down the key locations. Most are similar to yours...the rest you will have to use trial and error. 2. If you load Word and touch each key location you can see on the screen what is what>

SOURCE: putting key back on

I think you need to be a micro surgeon to successfully get the key back on. I know of few that have successfully gotten them back on.
The good news is that the keyboard is replaceable and not very expensive.

Can't find bad odor

You probably don't want to hear this, but here goes: usual cause of this is from spilled liquids that have gotten under or behind inside panels of fridge. Other most common cause is from something nasty getting into the motor/compressor area located in lower back of unit. Most people don't know that the compressor area should be cleaned about once a year. Good luck with your fridge.

My shredder jammed so I took the top off of unit in order to clean. When I pulled the top back it pulled all of the wires loose. Being inexperienced I should have made a "diagram" of where the...

I'm afraid i cannot help you to tell you where each specific wire goes first because the wire colors mean nothing without sources and destinations but i can tell you this:Each wire has an elastic memory so that the shape it had before you opened it should remain the same. This means that you can deduce where each wire goes. Also you should have an electrician do the connections as there could be some voltage/amperage issues.

I have a Brother SE2700 and a piece came off that helps thread my needle, its a metal piece that goes right under neath where the needle cartiage goes in to thread my needle, I have the piece but cannot...

Unfortunately, the part may very well be broken. Unless you can find someone to repair it for you, you may have to manually thread the needle. Not such a big deal, really. Auto needle threaders have been around for only about 10 years, so machines were manually threaded for over 100 years.

Something that helps:
Lick your index finger
Swipe it across the "back" of the needle eye
(the moisture in the eye will almost cause the thread to jump through it!)

Good luck!

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.

You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

Will the condensation not draining from the km 18,500 air conditioner damage it?

Well it just Why not check the filter first and see to it that it is clean.. Then if you can be certain that eh unit is tilted to the outside about 1 inchor so. You can also look for a hose that drips theowter to the outside. some unit have them some don't. either way you will need to remove the unit form the case a little bit to access the drain pan area. UNPLUG IT FROM THE ELECTRICAL SOURSE get a few towels handy you might need them. As you pull the unit out you will see the coils which are right behine the filter you just checked . Under neath the coil you will see a little pan that goes around the coil . it will have water in it which is fine. to a point. If it has a hose you can now clean it out and perhaps run some hot wather and soap inot and down the hose to clean it out. If it does not have a hosethen you just clean out the pan and again be certian that the unit is tilted to the outside and your done. Push the unit back into the case and plug it back in.and start it up again. you should be happy with the result Hope this helps let me know Jon

I took my Dell wireless mouse apart to clean the wheel. The spring fell out. I don't know where it goes back ( I didn't see where it fell from). I put it back together without the spring and now...

i beliece it is very fiddly to put that certain spring back in cus it is hard to see where they go back, my advice is to go to a local PC store and get them to use the right tools to place it back in for you.

My ti-89 is frozen, no matter what keys i press.and although i took off 4 batteries, but when i put batteries back, it is still same, menu screen.

First try the reset code which is pressing Left-Right-Shift and On at the same time. If that doesn't work you can try removing the batteries and putting them back in while holding the (-) and ) buttons.
If those don't work, there is a back-up battery located under a panel just above the four normal batteries underneath the battery cover. Removing this in addition to the four normal batteries should reset your calculator entirely.
If none of these work then there may be a short in the circuits of your calculator which could have been caused by leaking batteries. In this case you can try disassembling the calculator (being careful to remember how it goes back together) and cleaning the circuit board with circuit cleaner.
