Crown D-150 Amp

My question is: The on/off switch is very hard to turn!!!Almost need pliers to turn it, Well, My buddy used the pliers I think!!, Well, now only 1 channel or 1 speaker is playing, the other speaker is very faint.!! Does the on/off switch have anything to do with now only the one channel working or speaker working?? They have both been working fine. I know it's not the pre-amp and if I change the inputs on the back of the amp than the other speaker works and the other is faint. If so, how to get the knob off the on/off switch?? I took the little allen set screw out and it still doesn't come off. I was going to look and see if I could line up the set screw and maybe this would make the switch work easier and MAYBE!!! both channels would work??? What do ya'all think??? Jay

Sounds like something was spilled into the amp and it got into the controls, switch and switch knob. As for the knob, lean the amp forward about 45 degrees and dribble hot water into the space behind the knob slowly. Try to keep the water from going inside the amp. Eventually, the knob should come off with some pulling & twisting. Once you get it off, replace both pots and the switch. If water gets into the amp just dry it up with paper towels, etc. and let it continue to dry while getting the new parts. HTH, Emory

How do I remove pneumatic staples from furniture.

try a large pair of pliers.
straighten the staples as much as you can, grip one leg with the pliers about 1/8" from the wood, and tap the pliers with a mallet or wood block.
alternate "till you can grip the crown.

I took a 01 ford f 150 triton engine and put it in a 97 ford crown victoria and switched all the components over but it's not running right it stall on acceleration then pick up speed I did not switch the...

Yes. You need the ecu that came with that engine. Did you switch intakes? The f 150 4.6 has a taller intake and I believe the stroke is different. I would switch the throttle position sensor too.

Northwest 72-MA878 Bluetooth watch directions. Watch was in 12 hour time, recharged and now on 24 hour time. howdo i get it backto 12 hour time? thak you.

one of the answers on this page said at the end that "You may have to use pliers to turn the knob" NEVER, EVER USE PLIERS ON A WATCH CROWN (Knob) If you absolutely have to, use a piece of leather or rubber to grab it with if your fingers are too weak to turn it, but NEVER Pliers! Using pliers is idiotic! That is of course, unless you don't mind ruining your watch and scratching it all up.

I turned of my main 150 amp circuit breaker at my home and now it wont come back on. it just wont switch all the way on just half way how do i fix this?

My electrician buddy says never turn off the main on the weekend.

Main breakers are subject to heat for a long time. Heat shortens the life of all electrical devices.

Click main all the way to one side, and then push back
If it doesn't engage, then the breaker is probably bad

Describe your Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR306059F Wrist Watch Problem: How to correct 0 position of 24 four hour hand. I think its done in conjunction with hour hand but how?

Here is how to correct the 0 Position for your watch.

While your the crown of your watch is down in the starting position , turn the crown until the mode hand (this is the circle at the bottom of the face) reaches CHR

At this time now pull out the crown until it clicks two times, two the second setting of the crown.

This will bring the watch to the 0 position correction function.
you can turn the crown clock wise to correct the hour hand.

press the a button to switch hand to second, or press again to switch to minute. Then use crown again to correct 0 position.

The hour and the 24 hour hand is in conjunction with each other.

then push down the crown all the way in and you should be all set.

The ignition switch actuator broke. Turn the key on, on top of the column is the ignition switch. It has a rod going to it. Use some needle nose pliers and push the rod to the front of the truck. Good luck

I need a wiring diagram for an 83 crown victoria starter coil

if you turn the key and the engine spins but doesnt fire try checking the timing for it to make spark at the time you need it to ,if it's out it wont catch and run or check for spark at the spark plug make sure it has spark use a dummy sparkplug in the boot and hold it on a ground and crank engine look for a blueish spark and if you have bare hands holding it you'll get a good jolt (insulated pliers)
