How to repair a broken chain on multi speed bicycle

to fix a broken chain you need a chain breaker tool to push the pins out of the links. Park makes a great one (Park CT-5, probably get it off of Amazon) for about $15. You can use the tool to remove the broken link(s), once removed, line up the good ends with the tool and push the pin back through. The link will be stiff, so you need to flex the chain laterally with your hands to loosen it up where you joined it together. DO NOT use a "master link" to join the chain together from a "single speed" bike, these will get jammed in the derailleur and cause more damage, and they are usually to thick for a multi-speed bike. Check out a repair manual or YouTube for details.

The key of car is broken i got all the pieces apart!! so how to rejoin it all together??

Take all the pieces to a licensed locksmith and have him make a new key. There is no way to join broken pieces together in such a way that very, very soon, they will break off in the lock.

The keyboard on my lg rumor lx260 isnt working

most cases having to do with the keyboard, screen, volume buttons or other parts of the phone is mostly related to the flex cable. the flex cable is a thin bunch of tiny wires that are joined together and form a flat extended cable. it is most likely that your phone is suffering from a problem of either a weak or faulty flex cable which needs to be changed.
my advice is that you send it to a repairer because it is a very delicate process which requires some level of expertise. depending on the type of phone and how common it is, the flex shouln't be too expensive for a phone like yours.
hope this was helpful?

Dryer will turn on and spin but is not heating up

This usually means the heating element (wire inside behind the turning drum) is broken. Unplug the dryer. Open up the back and front of the dryer, remove the drum's belt, then the drum. You should see the heating wire at the back. Check for the break. Then using pliers, join the two broken ends together by twisting the wires together. Put the parts back together, plug the dryer back in and away you go.

The prong that the battery charger plugs onto is loose/broken, how do i take the top off the laptop to do so?

Remove the keyboard first, there may be screws holding the case together under the keyboard.
Make sure you first remove all the battery and drives etc. there are usually screws in these areas that secure the case together.
The top and bottom parts of the case are held together by plastic clips. The best way to open the case is to start at an opening and gently spread apart the case until the clip releases and then continue along that edge and gradualy continue working along the other edges of the case.

Sony Vaio PCV-LX900

First and foremost, laptops are quite difficult to take appart. A great deal of care and know how are required. It is also very easy to further damage them if not correctly and carefully disassembled. I do not recomend you service this yourself, from experience I have broken quite a few laptops requiring far more work then the original problem/s. But to get to trying to help you. Remove all casing screws that hold the upper and lower case together or to other parts. if you look on the back of the monitor hinges, there are screws there, when removed you open the screen fully back and pull up on them to remove the top. This generraly holds the keybeard down. Be careful not to damage the keyboard cable. Unplug the keyboard and check for screws under it. You should be able to seperate the case now using a small screwdriver to push all the release tabs around the case. Good Luck, and again I don't recomend doing any of this.

Hold pedal

I had the exact same problem with my Casio keyboard and a Yamaha sustain pedal I bought.

I'm not an electrical genius, but I was able to get it to work by opening it up and doing a little modification. Of course I first just tried switching the white wire with the black one but that didn't change anything at all when I tried it. It turns out the Casio wants the circuit completed to sustain, and broken for no sustain, which is the opposite of what the Yamaha pedal does.

I opened it up and mine had three three flat metal strips let's call them Top, Middle and Bottom. The Middle and Bottom ones were joined together on the right side, and the Middle and Top ones were touching on the left side when the pedal was not pressed. These seperated when the pedal was pressed, thereby breaking the circuit because the wires were on the top plate and on the joined Middle/Bottom plate.

So to flip it I:
1. Unsoldered the Bottom wire
2. Cut apart the Bottom and Middle plates on the right.
3. Bent the Middle plate on the right to touch the Top plate instead and soldered those together.
4. Soldered the Bottom wire back on.

That's it! Once I figured it out, it took only a few minutes to fix.
Good luck!
