SOURCE: disassemble to repair

I just decided to try to fix mine. There are all together 5 screws. The two on the handle are covered with plastic caps which can be pulled out by sticking a duct tape and pulling it up. The other three screws are in the thumper head and are covered with the purple violet rubber piece. I removed it with my fingers. There are also two plastic bolts in the head of the thumper opposite to the handle. I removed them by using a sharp knife to loosen them and pulled with pliers.
I purchased two thumpers over time and in both the switch failed. I see that the switch in the handle is linked with the underlying mechanical switch by a very thin plastic piece. What a miserable design. That piece broke off in both thumpers rendering them unusable.
Good luck. Artur

SOURCE: 066 stihl, have all screws out but can't split case.

Assuming all screws are out, intake, exhaust and cylinder, oil pump and all oil pump related items are removed Screw the clutch carrier back on to the crankshaft (this protects the crank threads) and tap the crankshaft with a brass hammer. (TAP not Whack.) The tapping should loosen the 2 halve of the crankcase. You must replace the crankcase gasket.

I have a 787HD, and am having problems deleting vidieos. The delete button does not respond most of the time, when it does it still won't delete when you hit the yes prompt,

I have encountered the same problem with mine.
This is what I do.
!. Tap rapidly on the confirm button (yes @ no) do not soft tap.
2. Use a stylus pen it's working for Me.
3. Make sure it's fully charge or plugged in.
4. With the stylus pen tap slightly left or right of the choice button you are going to use.
Hope this helps out.

Audiosonic action cam ASOVS002 WATERPROOF CASING.

Look for screws around the seams on the casing. Remove them.
If you cannot open it in the normal way, use an angle grinder to cut off the casing, be careful not to damage the camrera.

How to pop the battery of a vivitar 882 hd camcorder

It's not sealed just, fortunately. It's just difficult to open.
The door should be on the same side of the camera as the lens.
Turn the camera upside down, and using both thumbs, push against the flat area, about 2 cm (or, about an inch) below the lens. Push from the lens toward the Vivitar name. It may not move the first time, but it should come loose after a few attempts.
This is for the Vivitar DVR 882HD. If you have a Vivitar 882 (without the DVR), it should be the same instructions, but the door to the battery case might be on the other side...I don't know if it is or not, because I don't have that version. In either case, though, just keep trying, and it should open for you.

IPhone case

An OEM in China called has made anodized iPhone’s OEM back case available as replacement parts. For $46.99 you will be able to replace the back case of your iPhone. It comes in black color and does not include the chrome Apple logo.
The back case replacement is not for the faint of heart, as it requires you to remove your current back case. It is not a simple clip and drop in cover case.
