The disc in the package with TomTom is for mounting the unit on any flat surface on the dashboard instead of the windscreen glass. Stick the disc anywhere you choose on the dash and then use the normal suction (windscreen) mount on it.
There must be someone in the world that has found a use for this, but I don't know anyone that has.
Remember that any GPS system works better if it has clear "view" of the sats ! Why anyone would ever need to put the unit deeper inside the vehicle ( and therefore reduce the signal and also have it out of their line of sight ) is a mystery to me.
The disc seems to be a useless bit of extra kit.

Open the case

The top plate is held on with four pieces of double-back foam tape applied to four press fit plastic discs and one piece of double-back tape along the top surface immediately behind the display. The discs are located 1/2" in from the sides and 1-1/4" and 4-5/8" from the rear (as measured from the "nose" (rounded edge)) of the case.

To open the case you'll have to carefully pry the top up enough at one side to get a razor blade under to start cutting the tape at each plastic disc. Once the foam is cut through each disc, the top on that side will be loose. Do the same to the other side so that both sides are loose. Now that the sides are free, carefully and slowly lift the top at the display-side rear so that it hinges at the tape behind the display. This will break the tape's bond and the top will come off.

The top is rather stiff and so if you're not careful you could bend it. The plastic discs have ringed shafts that press fit into holes and may even start pulling out of their holes if you're lucky, but that seems remote from what I experienced.

Again, use care in prying and make sure that you cut through the foam. Then, if you're lucky enough to solve the problem that lead you to open the thing, then you can use double-back tape to hold the top in place or if you're mechanically inclined, you can drill top and tap the plastic discs for screws so that you can open it easily whenever the mood strikes you.

The plastic suction cup attaches to your windscreen. You can see more of the device in

Your Motorola phone charger will not work and it may even damage your GPS! In the package you have a cigarrette lighter adapter for your car - the home charger (AC-charger) you have to purchase separately.

Foam ring came out of cd drive


if it was sitting on top of the disk.
it must have been attached to the top-underside of the dvd drive.
this would usually act as padding or a buffer.
the only way, is to open up the drive, and re-fix or glue to the centre of the drive lid/top.
heres your only other option:-
If the front drawer is removable, or detachable. cut a piece of double-sided sticky tape. to the exact shape of the foam ( washer ) we,ll call it. stick to the washer. remove the other side of tape. place the washer on the centre of an old CD. manually eject the cd drawer ( Powered Off )
place the sticky sided washer on the centre of The CD. and place in the drawer. use a spatula or thin Knife, under the CD. to lever the cd, and sticky washer, back to the ceiling/roof of the drive. where it came from.
ensure it,s central. This is just a suggested Thought. And will require some thought before attempting it.

New XBox 360 putting scratch in games

the problem is the disc drive.
you have to open it up and put some stick foam " like a sticky strip of foam, insulator : on top of the drive .
the problem is that the disc touches the laser assembly while turning cheating a ring on the disc.
i can fix your games as well as the disc drive if you feel like is to complicated.

I just posted a reply to another message that is almost the same. Could be you. It is the foam pad ring from a new CD or DVD spindle that was stuck on a disc that you put in and missed it. It does not go back in the drive. It goes in the trash.
The ring is used hold the discs solidly on new retail spindle. The noise was the drive strugging with an unbalanced disc.

If you caught it right away and nothing hit the laser or lens you are ok. Try reading or burning another disc.

Replacement foam for Beyerdynamic DT 531 Consumer Headphones

I have the same problem with a pair of Fostex Headphones. I have taken them apart and I have removed the rubber type ring that the foam fits over.
I am going to order a cheap pair of thin foam Headphone ear covers from Ebay. (They are available in various sizes) and stick the foam to the ring and follow that
by sticking the ring back in. Should work if the foam is thin enough. What do you think?

Screws included for wall mounting don't fit (Altec Lansing MX5021)

They do fit but the hole in the speakers are very small so you have to apply a bit of force to screw them in.
