Left shift key is loose

The left shift key is loose. It's still attached, but the right edge of the key is no longer attached to anything underneath. Is there an easy way to snap this key back down? It looks like there's a hinge setup, but I can't push it back into place. mine came completely off, how does it go back on, anyone figure that out yet?

The keys on laptops are easy to break. Many times they become loose or broken during cleaning or even though normal wear if the computer is used a lot.

If everything appears to be intact simply align the button directly over the area and apply a light, even pressure. This should snap it back into place. If you aren't comfortable doing this contact your local computer repair shop and have them take a look at it. Hope this helps!

Pride ultra making noises during ride

If you turn to the right and the speed of the clicking sound goes faster then your left wheel has the problem. The shaft key is a little loose and is shifting while running. If you turn to the right and the speed of the clicking sound goes slower then the right wheel has the problem. Sometimes a stick will become lodged underneath making contact with the wheel or rim making a clicking noise. These noises can drive me nuts. Scooter Doctor App

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.

Need to remove ignition switch in my 1986 cutless to put new one in. how do I remove the old one.

Removal & Installation
NOTE This is an extremely difficult and lengthy procedure. You must remove the steering column from the vehicle and disassemble major portions of it. Because the column is collapsible in an accident, it is necessary that it be handled with care to avoid distortion of major parts. It must not be dropped, hammered on or even leaned on, or vitally important parts may deform. The procedure for replacing the ignition switch on tilt type columns is not included here because it involves substantial additional work and the use of several expensive special tools. Unless you are rather experienced, we recommend that the job be left to a competent professional mechanic.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the clamp bolt from the steering coupling at the lower end of the steering column shaft (located near the steering box, under the hood).
  2. Disconnect the shift linkage from the shift tube lever at the lower end of the column.
  3. Remove the steering wheel with a puller, as described above.
  4. Remove the left sound insulator and lower column cover.
  5. Remove the trim cap or lower trim panel from the instrument panel, depending on equipment.
  6. Remove the steering column cover and toe-pan attaching screws. Remove the shift indicator needle from the shift bowl.
  7. Securely support the column in position and remove the two nuts attaching the column to the underside of the instrument panel.
  8. Lower the column carefully, being careful to retain any spacers that may have been used in order. Disconnect the wiring. Then, carefully remove the column from the inside of the vehicle.
  9. Begin disassembling the column, removing the lock plate, canceling cam, and turn signal switch. See the "Turn Signal" Removal & Installation procedure above.
  10. Remove the ignition lock and key warning switch as described below.
  11. Remove the spring and bolt assembly, and the associated thrust washer. Then, remove the rack preload spring, switch rack, and actuator assembly.
  12. Remove the upper shift lever spring. Then, remove the gear shift lever bowl.
  13. Remove the shift bowl shroud and bowl lower bearing.
  14. Unhook and remove the dimmer switch actuating rod. Remove the attaching nut and remove the dimmer switch.
  15. Remove the attaching screw and stud and remove the ignition switch, disassembling the actuating rod from the hole in the sliding actuator.

Replacing the ignition switch

To install:
  1. Move the ignition switch sliding actuator all the way to the left (ACC) position. Then, move it two detents (OFF-UNLOCK) position to the right.
  2. Then, position the actuating rod hole in the sliding actuator, and install the ignition switch, stud, and mounting screw.
  3. Install the dimmer switch with its attaching nut tightened only loosely. Then, depress the switch slightly until you can insert a 3/32 in. drill through the hole in the switch housing and slider. Force the switch upward to remove any lash and tighten the mounting screw with the switch in this position.
  4. Put the shifter in NEUTRAL and install the shift lever.
  5. Install the shift bowl shroud and bowl lower bearing.
  6. Install the rack preload spring, switch rack, and actuator assembly. Install the spring and bolt assembly, and the associated thrust washer.
  7. Install the ignition lock and key warning switch as described below.
  8. Reinstall the column into the vehicle. Make sure when assembling the lower and upper dash covers that they can slide on the column. If the bracket which mounts the column to the dash has been removed, install the bolts in this order:
    • Left rear
    • Left front
    • Right front
    • Right rear
Tighten the bolts just snug to avoid distorting the column.
  1. Install the switch connector to the ignition switch. Then, position the column in the body and support it there. Install the lockwashers and nuts for the coupling and tighten them. Then, loosely assemble the nuts fastening the mounting bracket for the column to the lower side of the instrument panel.
  2. Position the lower cover to the firewall and ensure that the cover is lined up by starting the left lower screw. Then, install and tighten the right lower screw. Then, tighten the left lower screw. Finally, install and tighten the two screws that fit into the top of the cover.
  3. Tighten first the screw for the left side of the cover clamp; then tighten the screw for the right side of the cover clamp. Finally, install and tighten the remaining cover screws.
  4. Finally, tighten the nuts fastening the column to the underside of the dash. Reinstall the bolt for the steering coupling clamp.
  5. Install the lock plate, canceling cam, and turn signal switch. See the "Turn Signal" Removal & Installation procedure in this section.
  6. Connect the wiring.
  7. Securely support the column in position and install the two nuts attaching the column to the underside of the instrument panel.
  8. Install the shift indicator needle from the shift bowl. Install the steering column cover and toe-pan attaching screws.
  9. Install the trim cap or lower trim panel to the instrument panel, depending on equipment.
  10. Install the left sound insulator and lower column cover.
  11. Install the steering wheel, as described above.
  12. Connect the shift linkage to the shift tube lever at the lower end of the column.
  13. Install the clamp bolt to the steering coupling at the lower end of the steering column shaft (located near the steering box, under the hood).
  14. Connect the negative battery cable and check all column operations for free movement and smooth operation.

Left shift + T, right shift + E doesn't work on an hiper keyboard

Your shift key is broken, if this product was recently purchased, return it for another. If you've had it for a while and it just decided to stop working, your best bet would be to pry the Left Shift key off and clean around that area and properly attach the key back on - its possible it wasn't hitting the sensor when it was pushed down.

If this does not fix your problem please leave a comment and I will assist you further.

Change of CMOS battery in IBM Thinkpad 1400 2621

This battery is hidden under the keyboard slightly up and to the right of center of the keyboard. To get it out is a pain.

Start with the computer sitting flat, lid closed, lid latchs facing you.. just like you were getting ready to open and use it.

Spin it around, rear ports facing you. Right above the external video port, on the right hand side, there are two screws, at a diagonal UP from the port itself, very close to the bottom edge of the LCD. Remove them. There is a small notch between the screws, using a small flat-blade screwdriver, pry up in the notch and pop the platic backing free from the rear of the laptop. DO NOT open it more than a small crack, you are just popping loose a small plastic tab. Open it too wide and you will lock it closed again or break the plastics when you open the LCD lid.

Spin the machine around again, and open the LCD carefully as far back as it will go normally. Find the Power Button. The Power button is to the far right of a plastic 'strip, with 4 other buttons on the far left. There is a small clear plastic strip overlying this button 'tray'. Find the small notch in the bottom edge of the clear plastic strip, use the flat-bladed screwdriver, and gently pry up, popping the plastic strip out of the tab holes in the tray. Under this plastic strip is a black adhesive 'strip' that has a house, magnifying glass, etc. markings on it, and 'i Series' or somesuch printed on it.

Using a razor blade, peel up the black adhesive strip on the left and right ends of the button 'tray'. You will find two small silver screws. Remove these. Then using your screwdriver, or as I did, a dental pick, *gently* pry up the entire tray from the BACK edge of the tray, and by lifting up the left side of the plastic tray. You will have to work it out from under the edge of the LCD bottom on the left side. DON'T yank on it, there is a small cable attached to the bottom of it. You will be able to rotate it toward you and roll it over, exposing the small latch holding the cable in place. Its a small, press-fit latch like what holds a keyboard cable in place. You'll need to work it open by lifting the left and right edges till the latch becomes loose. Pull the cable straight out of the slot, remove the entire plastic 'tray', and set it aside.

On the far upper right of the keyboard there is a small metal tab holding the right upper edge of the keyboard. Reach around to the back of the computer, right-hand side rear, find the little square thumb-notch, and pull it out. The latch on the upper right edge of the keyboard should retract. Now, while lightly pressing down on the keyboard, push the keyboard away from you. It should slide backwards and the front tabs on the front keyboard edge will pop out of the slots. Lift up the touchpad area, popping up the bottom edge of the keyboard, clear of the plastics, then pull the keyboard slightly toward you. It should pop loose all the way around. DO NOT yank on it, there are 3 small cables attached underneath. You wil need to lift the keyboard up enough to reach the cables and pop the lockdown tabs loose, then pull the cables straight out of the slots they are in. The cable slots are attached to the motherboard, the cables are attached to the keyboard.

Removing the keyboard will expose a flat silver panel underneath. There are 5 screws holding down the panel, 4 in a 'box' configuration on the left, and a single one on the right, and several slide-tabs around the edges. Remove all 5 screws, then slide the whole tray to the right, while lifting up. The entire tray will pop up, with the video card heatsink attached on the left-underside of the tray. Set this aside. Directly in the middle of the big hole you now have is the battery. Its smaller than a standard desktop motherboard battery, looks like a small silver button. Gently pry up on the bottom-left edge of the battery, very carefully or you will break the plastic clips holding it in place, and pop it out.

All done. Reverese order to put it all back together.

Filmy appearance and spots on the underneath of glass

Today I opened my V200 without much problems. First unscrew the two screws under the lid. Then turn the V200 upside down. Lift the base plate up, gently, beginning at the back (a little twisting is needed). Take care not to force anything. It took me 10 minutes. Fold everything open like a suitcase, then clean the glass inside...
To close again start with the front (sort of click system)

How to use clipper attachments...

Used against the scalp, around the ear, on the left and right side... working against the growth direction from behind the ear to the front of the ear.... The angle of the back of the taper guide comb makes it easy to create a smooth, progressive, natural taper along the edge of a men's clipper cut. Do this after you have used a regular guide comb to take down the general perimeter length and you will have a nice tapered edge to the clipper cut around the ears.
