Sachtler Video 18 III: It will not hold level when I pan. The problem is not if the ball is tight.

Sounds like your built-in level may be out of alignment. You may want to try to level the head using a hand level to double-check the accuracy of the tripod head's built-in level.

I have a Sachtler Video 18P Fluid Head. I know where the batteries are for the balance bubble, but I can't figure out how to turn the bubble light on. The tripod is fairly new, so I'm not sure if the...

Just press hard on the bubble with your finger to turn the bubble light on. You may have to do it a couple of times. It goes off by itself after a short time.

I want to get to the motherboard. how many screws are there?

1 Wear an antistatic wrist strap before you start dismantling the notebook. Doing so will prevent static electricity from damaging internal components.
2 Shut down the notebook, and remove its AC power cord and battery. Turn the laptop over and remove all marked screws from the bottom. Raise the plastic shells covering the hard drive, memory (RAM) and wireless card slots, and uninstall the components by lifting off the base. You may have to release locking clips to free the RAM module from its slot.
3 Turn the laptop around and detach the keyboard panel. Using a flat-head screwdriver, push inward on the four small latches holding the keyboard in place to disengage them. Lift the keyboard to remove it, and disconnect its flex cable. Remove the five screws from the exposed landing. Do not undo the screws securing the heat sink and CD-ROM drive.
4 Split the notebook casing open. Insert a pointy or flat-tipped implement between the top and bottom parts of the casing, and maneuver to detach the locking mechanisms holding the two parts together. Work your way all around the perimeter to detach and remove the top casing. Do not apply too much force, or you may break the plastic parts.
5 Remove the hinge covers holding the LCD panel. Unscrew the two plastic hinges to loosen the display assembly and its enclosed LCD screen. Locate and pry open the CMOS battery---a flat, circular component resembling a watch battery---from the motherboard. Disconnect the LCD cables, and detach the panel from the laptop by lifting it up from its position.
6 Undo all securing screws from the chipset and heat sink. Remove the components by gently raising, checking to ensure that you've disengaged all attachments. Remove the CD-ROM drive by unscrewing its attachment and detaching it from the notebook. With the optical drive off, disconnect the speaker's connecting wires and remove the speaker assembly.
7 Unscrew all points of attachment to release the motherboard from the notebook's chassis. Locate and undo all locking mechanisms, such as clips or hooks, to free the motherboard. Remove the plastic inserts for the modem, as well as the PCMCIA and SD card slots, and detach the motherboard. Move the board around a little to release it, and lift it off the notebook.

Detaching bread hook from machine

Im sorry if this doesn't help (if it does please rate :D), but my mother used to have an older one and the way hers came off was by holding the dough hook tightly while pushing it straight up(wich in turn is pushing the dough hook into the machine head itself) while pushing the hook up give it a ( I believe clockwise) turn and let it slide off, don't drop it lol.

Hope this helped you!

Ps there is the lever on the side that once slid, releases the 'head' of the mixer, so you can tilt it back first, this should make it easies even.

Kenmore Elite Oasis is making a loud banging noise during spin cycle. Also just noticed a small amount of water under the washer. All other cycles appear to be working fine.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

How do I change the belt on my Kirby G 2000 Limited Edition?

Lift the head two pedal clicks off the carpet.
Lift the headlight and you will find a silver thumb dial to remove the carpet head. At the front of the head there is a square dial which you must rotate to release the belt if not broken. Rotate the square dial , then release the silver thumb dial under the light housing and the head will detach.
Flip it upside down to expose the brush and open the grate covering the brush. Note on either end there are colored leveling blocks for the brush. Reinstall with same colors showing.
Clean any hair and thread from the brush roll and insert new genuine belt. reinstall in opposite order, Be sure to turn the square dial backward to align the belt in a twist pattern before reinstalling the head onto the vac.Then lower onto carpet with pedal.
