The short answer is: buy a new one. The long answer is: the battery can be replaced with a ATC Cordless Phone Battery 3.6V NiMH for Sanik 3SNAAA55HSJ1 3SNAAA60HSJ1 series (amazon, $3.16)(this battery is the correct size and volt, but has a higher milliamp rating) This, actually, is a battery for a cordless phone. The old battery is not meant to be replaced, but this one will work. To do this: 1) remove the base from the unit, 4 screws can be removed with a long narrow Philips head screw driver. you can insinuate the driver into the corkscrew area. 2) pry off the black switch, this can be done with a small flat screwdriver. 3) slide off the silver sleeve from the unit. 4) separate the black plastic clamshell pieces by removing four screws. 5) remove tape form battery and cut wires next to battery. 6) use a dremmel grinder to create more space at inner side of plastic base part(battery will not allow unit to close as it is flat and OEM battery is curved) 7) solder battery leads to unit leads(electrical tape to cover solders). 8) screw unit together. 9) put axle for switch back into place and slide silver sleeve back over unit.(may need some lubricant and coaxing) 10) screw base back to unit(may need to carefully tape screws to driver so you can get them into place 11) recharge(1-2 hours of work).......or BUY A NEW UNIT.

Oster electric wine opener wont pull out corks. Half of the cork, or part gets stuck up in the unit. Has always worked fine up until day before yesterday. Is is shot? Or cork puller not sharp anymore?


You need to replace the battery pack, pull it out and see what type of cells are used, then build a new battery pack, did this on my own opener and wow it really rocks, lots of power.

I am wondering how can I tell if my wine opener (WSI-OP200) is fully charged. Is there anything indicates it.


When fully charged the light will be solid green! When charging it will be flashing green!

Won't extract cork


I have the same type of device and I replaced the battery pack with Nickel metal hydrate batteries off eBay, cost about $10.00. Of course I had to make up the cell pack and install and solder the battery pack in.

Once the unit is charged how long does the battery run dry


Once fully charged, it will last for about 4 hours, if it is used without shutting down. The good thing is that it comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery. That can be recharged once it is weak. I will strongly advice that you do not allow the battery run down completely before recharging as the battery might become weak and unable to hold a charge. So do not let your gps die before recharging. you can charge once it is low.

Canon photocopier iR2016 displaying "waste toner full" on screen. How do I fix this?


Hi there you can empty the waste toner box wich is located inside drum unit.

The procedure is next:

open front cover and leftsideway door
release the blue handle above the drum unit
pull out the drum unit
on top of drum unit, near handle is located plastic grey colored cork
remove it and by means of vacume cleaner clean the vaste toner.

Note that if you flip out the drum unit and try to empty waste toner it could be messy and the toner can get into charge roller or on drum cleaning blade and then you need to change it completly.

hope that hepls

The unit is no longer recharging, I need to


Hi,

Sorry about this but the batteries for this seem to be discontinued and are no longer available. A quick rumage around on google for a GDVD70W6 Battery 7.4V 2600mAh 456295 YOKU info from www.chsinteractive.co.uk just keeps coming back with the same answer.

I keep getting the following Canon 2020i copier error code E000019 somewhere on the internet I read that this may be a "waste toner receptical being full. I would like to solve this myself if...


Hello!

The answer for your problem is:
1) open the front door
2)open the left door
3) on front side door you will see the blue handle (left from toner bottle) which you must turn in right side.
4) pull the drum unit out ( the drum unit is unlocked when you turn the blue handle in right position, see step 3).
5) On upper side of drum unit, near the handle, you shuld see the little cork.Pull out the cork, and with vacume cleaner, vacume the waste toner out.

THIS SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM, BUT THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO REPLACE THE DRUM UNIT, CODE IS C-EXV14 CANON DRUM UNIT.

IF YOU HAVE BLACK NARROW LINES ON YOUR COPIES, AND PRINT OUTS YOU CAN CLEAN THE CHARGE/PRIMARY ROLLER.BUT ASK FOR HELP ON FIXYA.COM AND THEN I WILL HELP YOU TO CLEAN THE CHARGE ROLLER.

HOPE THAT HELPED.
