Question about Coleman Four-Way Quad and Micro Quad Lantern

Open Question

I installed the batteries in my lantern...first time, and the cover will not close.

It is a screw on lid, and just keeps going around and around, even with heavy pressure on it.

Energizer WeatherReady lantern came with batteries; worked once. Can't unscrew the top to change batteries. Possible battery corrosion? Is there a workaround fix?


Mix water and baking soda together until baking soda is dissolved.
Take a small baking pan or a bowel with a flat bottom and place the lantern in a vertical position, bottom down and slowly pour in the baking soda solution so the solution is 1/4" above the battery lid so the solution can soak into the threads of the lid. Let sit overnight. Next morning, slowly lift the lantern out of the solution without tipping it keeping it vertical, and slowly unscrew the lid over the sink. Keep in mind there will be solution inside the lantern when you first open it, so be careful not to tip it until you dry out the inside.

How do you install 6V battery into Dorcy luminator


I was just having the same problem - I didn't realize that I had to take the black caps off the two springs at one end of the battery! Once I pulled those off, and put the battery in with the springs facing up, I was able to screw the top of the flashlight back on, and it worked. I hope this helps.

Lexmark 7600 printer cover is not seating properly after installing printer cartridge


The two hinges are attached to the back of the printer by two screws. I removed the two screws and lifted the top off, freeing the two hinges (the one on the right was broken so part of it stayed in the printer). There is a restraining line on the right side that keeps the top from coming completely free of the printer, but it can be worked around while still attached. I removed the broken pieces and the internal spring from the right side hing. The spring is what was keeping the top from seating correctly. I assume you could order a new hing, but I reassembled the printer without the spring and the top seated properly. The printer works, but I will now need to be very careful when replacing the ink cartridges because of the missing hing on the right side.

I can't figure how to change the battery on this hardcase lantern took off the rubber surrounding the lantern face, but nothing else seems to come off without unscrewing, But seems like those sre rivits...


I've owned this flashlight for years. In the comment above, ignore the instruction to remove the rubber casing around the lamp area. Simply grasp the whole front of the lamp piece (including the rubber cover), and twist in a counter-clockwise direction to remove. Then squeeze together the two black tabs and pull the battery compartment out to replace the batteries.

The windows and sun roof doesnt work i think i have a blown fuse


The fuse and relay box on the E30 and E36 models is located in the engine compartment. The E36 models also has relay boxes located under the left side of the dashboard.

Circuit Breakers
Resetting & Replacement

Circuit breakers are located inside the fuse panel. They are automatically reset when the problem corrects itself, is repaired, or the circuit cools down to allow operation again.

One of the less known about fuses that can cause all this to go out is the fuseable link. It is in a black plastic box near the battery. It is an appx 60A thin metal strip fuse. Check the website link to the right for more info.

Also, I suggest check your Fuse Diagram in the BMW 525i Owners Manual here.

Power Sunroof
Emergency Closure Operation

The sunroof is equipped with an emergency closure feature should the sunroof motor fail or the vehicle has lost electrical power. To close the sunroof under these conditions:
  1. Remove the front headliner trim panel.
  2. Using the 6mm hex key that is included with the tool kit, insert the key into the hex socket and turn the socket to close the sunroof.

  5. Adjust the sunroof lid. Pull the roof liner frame into position and clip into place.

E36 Models
  1. Close the sunroof fully. With a quick actuation of the sunroof opening button, open the sunroof so the back edge of the lid depresses 0.08-0.12 inches (2-3mm).
  2. Slowly push the roof liner panel back into the roof. Do not force or use a quick motion or damage could occur.
  3. Remove the mounting screws and pull the lid off at the rear side. Do not operate the sunroof with the panel removed.

  1. Install the lid and check that the hooks and levers align. Install the screws with threadlocker or use new micro-encapsulated screws. Torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  2. Adjust the sunroof lid. Lower the rear of the lid by operating the motor. Pull the liner forward and clip into place.

Good luck.

I have a GE Hurricane lantern model # 17000, how do I get it apart to put new batteries in it? There is an arrow on the bottom of it pointing to oppen one way and close the other, but nothing is budging.


I have the same latern. Apply a bit more force to rotate the bottom lid in a counter-clockwise direction. There are threads on the inside of the botton lid. To replace the battery or bulb you go through the botton of the lattern.

Fuji s5100 batter door cover prongs are broken off.


I have the simple and cheap fix to a frustrating problem!
Just take a tripod base and screw it into the bottom of the
camera. The square tripod base is large enough to hold the battery
cover on the camera closed without any interference.
So there you go! No tape, rubber bands or other crazy contraptions!
Cheap, Quick and simple.

Battery lid or cover


I have a s5500 with the battery lid clips broken.. fuji says ,, nope no warranty on that part ,, what a joke,,$120 dollars labour plus parts and freight for repair... anyway ,, went to jaycar (electrical supplies etc) and found a small metal clip/ fastener that I used on an existing exterior screw below where the strap is located. i then placed another screw in the lid that allows the remainding hole in the fastener to slip over, works like a charm. took me around 3 minutes to do and does not affect the grip on the camera and still alllows it to be easily opened and closed. I am most pleased i now have my camera back.
