How do you install light in dryer

Turn off the power of the breaker box at the installation area. Close off the gas at the valve. Install your exhaust tube of dryer. Plug the dryer and push it to the final position. But I think it would be a tedious job for the first timers like you. So do it carefully and with proper guidance by some garden contractors from whom my friend had taken an advice, which could reduce your efforts and also would provide some gardening tips.

Can't switch from tuner to photo on Sony str gx50es

behind the switches perhaps has bad connections on the front panel pcb
or the switches need taken out and apart and cleaned a tricky job
i do all the time in studios

so you need to take this unit as it quite old and a decent sony to a dealer or the local tv repair man
and have him solder it up and clean it etc
and replace any capacitors it needs changed out.. also

cost i think about £50 to restore fully
or diy = £0

T8845pv Timer ignores pin up for no water day

I think this is how it should operate:
When the day skipper pin is pushed down on skipper-wheel....
... the day skipper pin pushes a lever away from trippers... so the trippers will not engage the lever ... and the day of watering is skipped.

Turn power OFF.
Take off plastic cover over the wiring terminals.
See if that is how it works, and look to see if something is missing.
Here is close up based on Intermatic image of 14-day skipper wheel, and you can see (what I assume) is the skipper pin pushing a lever.

Attach close-up photo of your timer.
If you have digital camera, set to macro or tulip icon for close ups... otherwise phone cameras don't give clear view unless lighting is good.

Assuming the timer is defective... I am not certain of Intermatic's warranty policy... except they have 1 year full warranty, and could send just the timer mechanism so you do not have to replace the box... steps: take photo of wiring, disconnect wires, snap or screw new timer into existing box, reconnect wires, and then send defect back to

Gene, I have a disassembled Malibu 300 W transformer with timer. I need a wiring diagram to reassemble it. Can you help?

Sorry, I don't have wiring diagram for Malibu ML300, and have not taken one apart. And I would like to see what you have.
Other people have written asking how to reassemble various timers, and I recommend turning back the hands of time and photographing each part before it is taken off.

Here's what we can do:
Photograph what you have using 'macro' setting on camera for close-ups, and then post photos on flickr or piccassa.
Then add a comment with link to photos.
Possibly we can puzzle it back together.

My 1995 Lexus sc300 antenna broke and I have ordered the part from Toyota for $103.00! Is it a $95 an hour job? They are quoting me two hours and I am on a fixed income. Can the repair be done by someone...


Any decent mechanic can do this job, the time taken is basicaly removing trim and components to be able to fit the new one, "tip" Toyota mechanics are among the highest paid in the world. and mechanic worth his salt can do the job, in fact you could do it with a little time and patience.

How do i bypass the DTS400B timer in order to test a sign?
Programming PDF:

Wiring PDF:

Above are links to your specific product that you may find handy.
The Tork DTS400B is a 4 channel timer
4-channel means you can control 4 separate loads, and each load can have a different timing schedule
Each channel or Load is wired separately.

To bypass the timer to check the sign, we can do that with the wiring
Open the wiring PDF above.
There are 2 boards of screws.
Wires to the clock are on Lower board and to the left.
These wires operate the timer clock only and we will not work with them.
The Loads (your sign) are wired to the other terminals on Lower and Upper board.
Below is a graphic taken from wiring PDF.
It shows a close up of the Lower board where your Loads connect.

I added Load1 and Load2 to the graphic so it is easier to talk about the terminals.
Before moving any wire, mark the wires with tape and numbers so there is no confusion later when you want to put the wires back.
Take a digital photo of the marked wires before any wires are moved.
To bypass Load1 timer functions, move the N wire to the same terminal as the L wire.
This will close the circuit, so the Load will be ON continually.
To bypass Load2, move the N wire to same terminal as L wire.

In this way, you can check each of the 4 possible Loads separately.

When finished checking the Loads, move your wires back.

Also above, I included the programming PDF so you have a digital (and search-able) manual for the programming functions.

Add a comment if you need more help.

How do I set the timer?

To set the timer, you simply need have the camera in ready mode (as if you were going to take a picture normally), then on the back where you have the four directional pad buttons, with the camera facing you press the left button once and you should see a circle with the number 10 in it. If not, press again. This is the timer for 10 seconds. If your press the left button again, you will see a circle with a 2 in it. This is the 2-second timer.

Now choose which one you want, the 10 or 2-second timer. Once you have decided, press the shutter button fully and you will start to hear beeping. This is the count down sound. Now depending on if you have the flash setting to go off, once the beeping and the self-time indicator on the front of the camera stops flashing, your picture has been taken.

To take another timed photo, you must repeat the same steps again.

Hope that helps.

Timer on samsung digital camera?

Sure ... be sure to use a tripod or other device to place the camera for stability.
  • Set the MODE DIAL to your desired photo setting
  • Press the SELF-TIMER button on the button pad (looks like a clock/timer on the right button pad)
  • There are three settings
    • 10 SEC - 10 seconds will pass until the picture is taken
    • 2 SEC - 2 seconds until the picture is taken
    • Double self-timer - a picture will be taken after 10 seconds, and then after 2 seconds a second picture will be taken.
  • Press the SHUTTER button to begin the timer.
  • Jump in the shot! =)
