Question about Acer TravelMate 2480 Notebook

The pin that the power cord goes into has broken off

I currently have the power cord set in place by some strong rubber bands going around the underneath of the screen around to the side where the power plug goes in and fits over the male pin that has come off, to keep the connection going. I would like to have it fixed but not sure exactly what needs to be done. I have seen two different pieces to replace that part with, one is just the housing of the pin w/the pin attached and another is the housing with parts of a mother board.
Thanks for your assistance.

Is the cord broken in the computer, or the monitor or the pin broken and stuck in the machine? If it is in a desktop it goes into the power supply. Which you can change the whole power supply fairly cheap. that is if it in a desk top computer. 4 screws, 4 or 5 connectors and ta da new power supply, All you need is readings off power supply such as wattage. Good luck

Can you tell me what size rubber band would be a suitable replacement for the play/record drive head?


You have a standard cassette transcriber, therefore the "rubber band" is a drive belt and it connects the motor to the capstan, not the head. You may have to contact Sanyo for an exact replacement. An ordinary rubber band will not work.

I have a porter cable rn 175a, barely used, driver will push 1 nail, and then has to be manually reset, any suggestions or solutions please


Driver not retracting is caused by check band around cylinder is not in place or broken. Easy to check. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder. There should be a black rubber band around series of pin-holes in cylinder. If the band is broken use any rubber that fits snuggly around cylinder and covers holes. Good luck

Drive pin does not retract


Easy to fix. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder. Look for black band around lower part of cylinder. This band (check band)should be placed around series of small holes. Replace if broken with any rubber that will hold up in oil or use a bunch of orings to fill space. Good luck.

Porter cable roofing nailer piston won't retract


Could be the check-band around the cylinder. Easy to check. Remove the head and pull out the cylinder. There should be a rubber band covering a series of pin-holes drilled into the cylinder. Usually the band will fall out of place or break. Use any rubber that will stay in place to cover the holes. Good luck.

The electric cord plastic jacket melted and burned through wire on one spot. Can the cord be replaced


I am currently attempting to do that myself. You need to separate the liner from the outside part. Using a pair of pliers, loosen the round nuts (found on the bottom) holding the unit together & separate. You'll find that the unit won't come completely apart because of the wiring. There is a heating band, held together by a spring, around the inner liner. Remove the spring to release the band. This should allow you to remove the inner liner & give you access to the wiring. At this point, you'll need to clip the appliance cord by the little wire nuts. The hardest part will be getting the cord out; there is a strain relief grommet that holds the cord in place and prevents it from being cut by the sheet metal where the cord goes through. I broke this strain relief on my crockpot and am currently looking for a replacement. Once I find a cord relief, I should be able to reconnect the wiring, the heating band and assemble the unit. Be careful not to cut yourself on the sheet metal!

A part came off and dont know where it belongs


You will need to lift felt on the platter section exposing the platter. Next you will need to pull upwards on the platter itself. The rubber band goes around the inside of the platter and onto the spindle motor. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, place the belt around the inside of the platter and replace the platter. Move the platter around till you see the motor and use some tweesers to pull the belt over the motor. Hope this helps

Digital camera screen broken


A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.
