First make sure mains lead is disconnected and no power is connected then remove all screws visable and please remember these tools are all pressed shut for extra safety so a little persuasion will be needed ,once your happy everything is ready to go ,gently put a blunt intstrument in between the two matching sides move along gently until the two sides start to part; as you move along you will notice them coming apart please take your time.when you put the blunt intstrument inbetween the two matching sides do not put it to deep as this could cause internal damage.also watch out for small locking clips inside the casing as these can break quite easily ,sometimes a small screwdriver is all that is needed to push these clips open.after a period you will find the casing starting to part quite openly to reveal the connection strip you need to get at.;;from experience i would start where the wire comes in to the casing; its the weakest part of the casing.i hope this will help you.adrian

    all external casing parts ie;non slip handles and other parts can be removed by inserting a small screwdriver gently under them and forcing them gently to pop off [if not screwed].

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would appear that the orange ring serves 2 purposes:

  • lock the handle together;
  • act as cover for the switch.
Other than the screws, the orange ring must also be removed:
  • If it is soft and pliant, then it would have to be forced out of the locking grooves by inserting a flat bladed screw drivers to snap it off position and thereafter slide out of the handle;
  • If it is hard and seem to break easily, then it has to be heated to soften it and therefore make it easier to stretch. A hairdryer on low setting should do the job.
In some instances, WD40 oil would also help make it jump out of the locking grooves.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Here you can get the schematics for a Bosh Edgetrimmer, that is similar.

If that helped remember to rate the solution.

Thanks.

No , you cannot get handle apart. Either you buy a new one or if you want to use this one only than you can use something which can be fit in its handle.
pls rate me

Hi

The handle should be in two parts, held together by the screws along the handle.

Once you have extracted them , the handle opens up, bit like an easter egg, and you will see the trigger switch, to which your main feed cable is connected.
Simply undo the terminals, and fit new cable as was the original, noting color code, and reassemble handle, and secure the screws, and test the unit before use.

Good Luck !

Any problems, give me feed back !

A FixYa rating would be nice ! Thanks John.

Hi there,

do you have a user manual with you?

    Levers are
    typically located on the rear handle and keep the blades from moving while
    the engine is idling.
    * Stop buttons. Stop buttons are basically a kill switch. Most
    commercial-trimmer manufacturers don't offer this feature because of the
    additional cost it adds to the units.

Go to your local home center, or a hardware/tool store, or even Harbor Freight. For less that $10 you can buy a kit that has a screwdriver handle and the 'forbidden' bits for screws that manufacturers use to keep you from working on your own equipment. Some are called "Torx" but there are others too. If you can take the equipment with you, you can be certain to get what you need. Now that I've shared this secret, please don't electrocute yourself -- unplug before your unscrew! Good luck.

Eht lead of my tv is spiking (arcing) to the tube


Hi, which end of the lead, is it the eht transformer or the anode end that plugs into the tube. I may have a hole in the lead somewhere and the voltage is arcing to the tube.
Check this and if it is the case then you will need to buy a new lead.. or try a load of installation tape.
BUT PLEASE BE CAREFULL, THERE IS EXTREMLY HIGH VOLTAGES IN THERE IN THE KV RANGE.

SO UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING , TAKE IT TO A SHOP.

I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE, IF YOU KILL YOURSELF.

If I have help then please rate me.

GOOD LUCK.

Brightness Problem


Hi,

Since focus adjustment using the flyback rear controls (EHT) has no effect, then it could possible mean two things:
  • the EHT is defective (most likely) at least the controls; or
  • the picture tube is already weak.
A workaround is to replace the filter capacitor of the ~70V leading to the collector voltage of the 3 color drive transistor. Normally used to replace with is 100uF/160V.

Of course best would be to have the EHT checked/replaced.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
