SOURCE: Garmin c330 battery replacement

The 3 wires are because the unit has a pcb on the battery which prevents over charging or shuts it off if the voltage falls too low. You can either use the pcb which is attached to the outside of the original battery (cut off the unit and reattach to the new battery with electrical tape) then solder the red and black wires to the appropriate Garmin wires or order a battery with built in pcb, If you do this, the green wire is not used, just solder the red and black wires from the plug-in connector to the new battery. It worked on my C330.

SOURCE: i have a nuvi garmin i cut the charger to connect perment

Are you sure the wires of your car have power to them? Did you use a wire for ground or did you ground it to the chassis. Try grounding it to the chassis. Some wires may only have power when the key is on or the engine is running.

SOURCE: I have a garmin GPS and a car charger...But when

The reason is that the plug is not pushed far enough into the satnav and it thinks it's being connected to a computer. Push it in fully and it should be ok.

How do i replace the end of an electrical cord that has been cut off


Purchase a new 3 conductor End - Note*** Connection procedure will be the same for either the Female or Male end...
  • Carefully cut around the sheathing being mindful to not cut into the individual wires sheathing.
  • Then peel away about 1.5", exposing 3 individual wires
  • Now, strip back about .50" of sheathing from each wire
  • Twist bare wires so individual strands are tight
  • Separate the cord end (many different varieties) and insert wires into a hole, securing nut, etc, to bring into proximity of connection lugs.
    • Black wire onto 'Gold' screw
    • White wire onto 'Silver' screw
    • Green wire onto 'Green' screw
  • Reattach in reverse order

Xbox Controller to USB Conversion


Did you know the Xbox controller has a USB interface built-in? How would you feel about playing your favorite PC games, with an Xbox controller?

Here is what you will need to get the job done:
  • Xbox Game Controller
  • Male USB Connector
  • Wire Strippers
  • Electrical Tape

1. Using a Male-Female USB extension cable, cut off the male USB adapter, along with a foot or more of cable.

2. You will need to cut off the connector on the Xbox cable, too.

3. Cut the Xbox connector off right at the base, leaving you some room to splice on the USB Male connector.

4. Now strip off about an inch of casing from the end of each exposed cable that we’ll be connecting. There will be a lot of thin silver wires and foil wrapped around a few smaller, colored wires. The silver casing is the shielding, just trim it back enough to expose the colored wires.

5. Using your wire strippers, pull away the casing on each of the colored wires to expose the bare wire.

6. Splice together each wire of the USB adapter to its matching colored wire on the Xbox controller. The Xbox controller has an additional yellow wire, which you can ignore. Use electrical tape to cover up the bare leads, or heat shrink tubing.

7. You should now be able to set up the device and start using it. The first thing to do is to download the XBCD drivers (download here), and run the installer file.

8. Once the drivers are installed, plug in the controller and it should detect and install the drivers for “XBCD XBox Gamepad”. Now go to Programs -> XBCD -> Setup Utility and set up your new gamepad!

How do I fix a broken wore on the ICM


You'll have to carefully solder a length of wire to it in order to make a splice. Gonna be hard to solder, so see if you can wrap a piece of cold solder film around the stub and hit it quick with a mini torch. Have the other piece already wrapped in the solder. You can get a little bag of those cold solder pieces from a radio shack.

How do I replace the power cord on an electrolux 8502A vacuum cleaner?


1 Unplug the vacuum and remove all accessories such as extensions and brushes. Open the vacuum's outer casing to get at the end of the power cord. Exactly how you will do this depends on the model of vacuum. Generally it simply involves the removal of two to three Phillips-head screws.
2 Follow the power cord to the two connections at the vacuum's motor. Unfasten any clips or holding bracket and disconnect the cord from the motor. Sometimes this can be accomplished by unscrewing two connection screws, other times the cord is soldered directly to the motor. If this is the case use wire cutters and cut the cord about 4 inches from the motor to give room for splicing on a new cord.
3 Insert the new power cord into the vacuum. Follow the exact same path as the old one. If there were any brackets or clips that held the old cord in place inside the vacuum or out use them on the new cord.
4 Tie a knot in the cord on the inside of the vacuum casing so that it will not accidentally be pulled out of the motor once it is in use.
5 Connect the new cord to the motor in the same fashion as the old one. With wire strippers take off about 1 inch of insulation from the new cord to expose the two wires. Either wrap them around the connection posts and re-screw, or twist the new cord wires around the 4-inch remnants of the old cord and seal all exposed wire and connections with electrical tape.
6 Replace the vacuum's casing in reverse order from how you removed it. Plug in the vacuum to test.

Used maytag electric dryer installation question


First off, you should be wiring your power cord directly to the terminal block inside the dryer. If someone just cut off the cord that is terminated inside the dryer, and you are attempting to splice the new cord onto the old one.. you are making a mistake.. take the new cord and bond it directly to the terminal block inside the dryer. If you have a new 4-wire power cord, you are probably dealing with a red/black/white and green wire. ( assuming it is a four prong plug).. The black and red wires are the power lines themselves and should mate with the red and black wires inside the dryer. The green ( is frame ground) and is normally bonded to a stud near the terminal block or the dryer frame. The white is the neutral line and is normally tied to the terminal in the middle and between the red and black tie points.. In line splices should not be done on this appliance.. Hope this helps..

clean all brown oxide off capstan roller with 70% alcohol and Q-tip. Its the skinny silver axle that the rubber roller comes into contact with when the tape loads. This is what pulls the tape through the transport. also clean heads with head cleaner tape. If your head is dirty, the tape will wrap itself around the drum and cause a transport error.
