Battery change on a stud finder

I think my stud finder has a weak battery, the beeping sound is weak. I like to change the batteries, but not able to find screws to open it, I am reluctant to pry it open.

I need to know the brand/model#. My stud finder has a release tab on the underside and it's easy access. Can you snap a picture and repost?

Are those new wireless stick vacuums worth buying? I love the idea but, it seems power must be limited or weak without enough suction.


I retired from fixing battery powered cleaning equipment a few years ago. The problem with wireless is that the batteries don't hold up. They will work fine for a few weeks- then they start to run out of juice after only a few min. On most rechargeables if you don't run them down completely, they only charge to the point you last put it on the charger (It's called battery memory). I personally think the rechargeables are a waist of money, and, when the batteries start to go- are frustrating. Just get an upright, with a side hose. I've got two at home that are over 20 years old. I only had to change the beater bar brush and belt twice in that time. No more than $150 bucks should be your price point for a vacuum used at your own home.

My simer ace in the hole a5000 will not charge my 2.5 year old battery. The battery voltage reads 10.75 volts. I replaced the twelve volt charger and it originaly lit the yellow charging light , but it no...


I does sound like a controller issue. Try testing the charging output (be careful, who knows what the voltage may be coming out) I would say it is the battery but the yellow light thing has me thinking you are right. That thing has been sitting there maintaining the battery for 17 years, it is probably tired. The other bad news is if your battery has been sitting at that low volta.ge it may have a greatly reduced capacity now. Hope this helps some. .

When I plug in my phone, it just pops up "Unable to Charge". What does that mean, & how can I fix it?


Possible that the charging current is insufficient- maybe due to poor charging circuit, weak voltage .
Also it can be due to weak battery in the unit that does not take in charge . In such cases you need to change the battery.

Is it possible to replace the battery (loosing charge fast, weak power) for Electrolux stick vac EL 1000? Wher to buy the battery an dhow much cost? Thanks LJ


Let me say this; The battery replacement for the Electrolux is not a owner level replacement procedure. However, you can replace the 4 original EMX1600sS batteries . The battery model is Tenergy 2/3A Size Rechargeable Battery 1.2V 1600mAh NiMH W/ Tabs Those are a little smaller than the originals but with the same capacity of 1600mAh and can be easily found in the web. Anything under those specs should work. These types of battery's will cost about $15.00 on the web.

I get a blinking yellow light when recharging my IRobot Roomba 550. What's wrong?


I am afraid you are having the problem of old or weak batteries. Old batteries at times tend to show such problems and do not show charge while charging properly. For this purpose, you can use a reliable Nicad Battery Repair Guide through which you can recharge the batteries without any problem and make them work like the new ones within no time, without anyone's help and you can do this all by sitting at home! I tried it and now I never buy new nicad batteries (http://www.nicadbatteryrepair.com/).

My dc16 dyson root vacuum stopped working abruptly with no indication of a weak battery, the charger does not show a charge on battery. usually the vacuum slowed before it stopped with a dead battery,...


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.

You can purchase a wide variety of high quality Dyson replacement parts for your Dyson vacuum direct from Think Crucial with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Roomba red #4100 needs repair does the circle


sounds like you have two different issues here. (Possibly one common)
Clean out the cliff sensors. Under the bumper. blow it out clean. This might stop the reverse circling. The battery is either bad, or the charging circuit is bad. if battery is know good then the problem is the main board needs to be replaced. a bad battery will kill a main boards charging circuit by over working it with shorted batteries
