Take out the battery or batteries.
turn the scope on to full power.
place the battery or batteries in the scope.
just start the battery compartment cover onto the threads.
watch through scope as you slowly tighten cover.
If the dot lights up stop turning cover or experiment with continuing to thread on cover.

I've had my pepper mill less than a month, have used less than half he pepper supplied with the mill. I bought new batteries for it and installed them correctly. Now the mill only works sporadically. ...

Sporadic operation indicates an intermittent (flaky) connection. Check the tightness of the battery terminals as well as checking for corrosion. If it can be made to work by fiddling with the button, then the button may be failing.

I'm sure this will sound stupid, I just bought a rifle with a Tasco red dot scope on it and have no idea how to activate the scope. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

No, that doesn't sound stupid. It's always a good idea to get all the information before using firearms and their accessories, and I'm happy to help:

The large knob on top of the scope is the rheostat, which is used to turn on the red dot, and adjust the brightness. It can be adjusted from "1" (dimmest) to "11" (brightest). You'll have to be looking straight down the scope to see the red dot, since it is only visible when you're aiming. If you turn on the scope to the brightest setting, and you look through like you are aiming, and the red dot is still not there (or very dim) then you probably need to replace the battery. It uses a 3 Volt coin-style lithium battery, type 2032. Unscrew the battery compartment on top of the rheostat and put the new battery "+" side up. Then replace the battery cover, and you should be good to go. Turn off the scope when you're done to save the batteries.

Since you bought the rifle with the scope already installed, it's probably already sighted in, or pretty close to being sighted in. Adjusting the windage and elevation on the red dot scope works just like other rifle scopes. The knob on top moves the point of impact up/down, and the knob on the side moves left/right. For this model, each click of adjustment moves the point fo impact by 1/2" at 100 yds, 1/4" at 50 yds, or 1/8" at 25 yds.

Be safe, and have fun!

Got new Energizer Hard Case Flashlight model IN421

Well much to our surprise the easy way is the best way. There are no instruction on the package nor on Energizer website but after googling we found reviews of the flashlight and how long it took others to find out how to put the batteries in. Although the base is DOES turn and voila....comes off to insert batteries.

MS Mouse 3000 won't work

Take it back to the computer store, my thinking is the board inside of the mouse is bad especially since one of the symptoms was the LED getting really bright. Bring it back and get another one.

Well, the white to pink dot is a sign of water in the phone. It is a moisture indicator and the first thing the repair fols look for so they can deny any claims.

They second thing is you can get an external battery charger for the razor. They run about 5 dollars and allow you to charge the battery seperate from the phone.

When we put the key in it will not turn. If I fiddle with it it will eventually turn and start the car. I can turn the wheel with the key out. I am thinking it might be something in that locking syste

I think that you need a new ignition tumbler You can find instructions in most manuals. If key has a security feature you may need a dealer to re-code it though. Job is not terribly difficult but you need to follow instructions exactly to avoid getting getting smacked in the face by the airbag!!! (no fun)

My 755 won't turn on sticks on verison screen

okay i think i know how to solve this because it also happened to me.. okay first take the battery out and see if there is a red dot on the battery

RED DOT--- okay if there is a red dot then it got wet. thats how it died. take it to the Verizon store and they can fix it

NO Red DOT-- okay this means that you DID NOT get it wet. take the battery out and shake it ( i know it sounds silly but trust me on this), After you shake it put it back in the phone and shake the phone. it should work.

AND IF ALL OF THESE DIDN'T WORK... then go to the verizon store a get a new battery.

All of a sudden my car won't start, so, I charge it for an hour put it back in and was able to start it. I bought a brand new battery but it didn't work. It only work when I charge it.

Just because you bought it new, doesnt mean it was up to par to install in your car. You charging it brought it up to the necessary power levels required to start. It sounds like the alternator is going out. Check the output voltage and amps with a meter. Anything under 12.3 vlts and 200-300amps, and your alternator is no good.
