Is there another solution like a sleve to attach

Is there another solution like a sleve to attach a sensor for IR instead of using double sided tape to attach the Infrared Emitter to the front of a component like a receiver, dvd player, cd player?

Most items that use double sided tape, it holds well for a long time. I have worked with these for a while and I am unaware of a better way to attach a direct emitter to a DVR or similar device.

-good luck-

TV powers off if you put a tape in that isn't rewound? As long as the tape isn't at the end, everything works fine, but if it's at the end, it won't let you rewind it. It just turns off. Help?!

Sounds like a problem with the end sensor. If you lift up the flap of a VHS tape you will see just above the catch of the flap a hole in both sides of the tape housing. If you turn the tape upside down, you will see a large hole inside in the centre between the two reel hubs. A infra-red LED in the machine mechanism fits into the this hole and sends a light (invisible to the ***** eye) out to the holes in the sides of the cassette when the tape is inside the machine. But when the black tape is in the way the light is blocked, but as soon as the clear leader tape appears the light passes out to an IR Detector, which sends out a signal to the electronics that the tape has run out and it will stop the mechanism. But in your case the IR Detector for the end has stop working. So when the tape has stopped and can't move the light detector has sent no signal out to say stop. So the electronics shuts the whole system down to prevent damage.
You should replace the IR Detector on the left side (tape in front panel). That should correct the problem. It shouldn't be to expensive.

How to attach loose scanner glass

The glass plate in scanners is almost always held in by some kind of 2 sided adhesive tape AND plastic clips. Th adhesive probably failed, but the glass plate is probably at an angle and not resting on the plastic clips correctly. These act as a failsafe in this very situation, so the glass plate doesn't break or damage the scanner guts.

Anyway, if you want a permanent repair, this is the tape you should use: Amazon com 3M Scotch Heavy Duty Mounting Tape Clear 4010 Double Sided...

It will definitely support the weight of the glass and then some. Be careful with this stuff, it will remove paint (or worse) from drywall. You should only need 4 strips, one for each edge of the glass. Apply it firmly to the glass, then stick the glass onto the plastic bracket.

IR sensor clicking sound

It sounds that some short circuit has occurred during connection. The connections should be soldered. Never paste them with any kind of adhesive tapes.

Fisher & paykel double dish drawer top draw just beeps...

The controllers get very brittle & can break away from their housing, the reason it's rapidly beaping is because it thinks the door is open. PLEASE TURN IT OFF FIRST AT THE POWER POINT. Take the front draw panel off by pulling the plugs situated on the front behind the draws, the controller is at the top right hand side if it is loose then thats the problem, double sided tape will work but lots of it or try a wedge type arrangement. I know this is an old post but people refer to these for solutions much later.

Your end of tape sensor is not working. Notice the beginning and end of each tape is clear? That is to allow IR (infared light) which you cannot see with out special stuff, into the area near the left and right of the cassette. Usually they look like a tiny light bulb wit a left and right side. Radio SHack carrys IR detectors cheap.

Bose 321 Remote not working

Pull off the front panel, be carefull there is a ribbon attached. Detach the ribbon. There are 2 ribbons attached to the front panel, one that leads to the IR (remote sensor) and other for the controls on the top of the unit.

Most likely the ribbon that goes to the IR sensor detached itself, this is common if the unit is dropped etc. Insert the ribbons (2) re-attach the front panel and the remote should work fine. You'll notice some tape on the IR ribbon, I suggest using some stronger tape, BOSE tape thats not very good.

This happened to me on my 3-2-1 GS II system and fixed it.

Toner sensor board

If you are comfortable taking apart your machine you could probably do it. The part can be ordered from a reseller online. The service manual for how to do it can also be downloaded from online sources. The service manual does not make a recomendation for any calibrations after replacing this part. Although a standard color calobration never hurts. But for the cost of the part, and one to two hundred bucks, you could get it fixed by a Certified Xerox Service Provider that will guarantee their work.
