Take the wheel base of the train in one hand. Point the' face straight up. Place your other hand on the top with you index finger on Thomas' face. Push down towards the ground with the hand on the top, and then pull apart. There is a little tab on the back that you need to get over. Some times the first time is the hardest.

Thomas's middle driving wheels (which don't rotate) are also a fail safe lock to prevent little hands from getting into the battery compartment and eating something they shouldn't. They pull downwards, allowing you to squeeze inwards and release the locking tabs. You can then lift off his top half to replace the battery. Hope this helps.

How do i add a second switch to my rc8233r?


I would try Ebay first (or search the net for availability and prices). I bought CR2032 3V Button Cell (that are used in my Carlon door chime buttons) batteries. I got 10 for under $5. Carlon (Thomas & Betts) still makes a variety of door chimes and accessories. However, on their site, the prices are atrocious. But, I think that Thomas & Betts deals in bulk (as in dealing with retailers). Because they list their items in bulk price form. I personally have 5 T&B wireless door chimes. Hence, 4 of the buttons are in storage. Out of curiosity, I tried all of them. All 4 extra buttons rang all the door chimes. Caution, on the packages of the door "chimes" I purchased. There's a blurb on there that states the wireless buttons for the "door chimes" will not work with the "doorbells". If you have the packaging for the one you have. It will explain. I'm not positive, but it seems the variance is due to whether you use battery or electric powered models. Hope I was of assistance...Greg

Hi, MY grandson was left alone with my PC when i returned the colour and contrast on the monitor was very dull also the menu language changed to japanese. I have tried to set it manually but nothing...


I think you know the first thing you did wrong!
Try booting into safe mode using the F8 key on startup and then do a system restore back to before your grandson visited. You could also choose "boot to last known good configuration"
Then password protect the computer and don't let him know what it is!

How do I cange Trackmaster Percy's battery


In the early model trains - Just by the middle wheel there are plastic brackets that lock the top in to open squeeze on both sides above the wheels to move the brackets in and pull the top up - This will open the top and then you can replace the battery Note my wife helped me to figure this out as I took all the screws out as well

Acer aspire one note book problems start up won't let me reboot quick blue screen message tried everthing in :f8: options and won't let me in to safe mode


I have the same problem with my acer laptop 3680. It is stuck on the BIOS screen with "press f2" at the bottom. I can get into the menu by pressing f2 repeatedly as soon as I hit the power button, and was able to change the boot order to CD first, but it will not boot from the Windows CD even though the CD drive is flashing and I can hear the CD spinning - same as the hard drive - still get the BIOS screen. I took it completely apart, dusted with compressed air, replaced RAM (new), and still same f2 screen. I removed the hard drive and booted up and the BIOS screen did not appear, but it said "Drive not found". Therefore, I think I have a dead BIOS battery since the BIOS isn't present without the HD. I did not notice a battery when I had it apart and have read that it is soldered in and almost impossible to replace. I ordered another motherboard on eBay (search: motherboard 3680) for $89 BIN today and will post again with results hopefully next week.
Have you tried pressing ALT+F10 on boot? If lucky, that will get the recovery console and you'll lose all data. I was able to save everything from my HD by plugging it into my PC with a USB/IDE adaptor which can be bought for cheap online and in most computer stores.

Cannon G7 need help


Hi
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?
