Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Your response gives a mixture of turning on the waterflow , and turning on the electric current. If you don't understand, WATER flows in a PIPE, and ELECTRICITY flows in a WIRE.

I want to know how to turn the electricity ON and OFF. This does not happen when I press the red plastic button inwards. Can you find a living person to help me please?

Any opinions on what's better electronic ignition or points .what are the pros and cons to both of any

electronic ignition will beat points hands down any time
to understand this you will need an explanation of how each works.
with a points system there are a set of points , a condenser and a coil
when the points are closed the current flows through the coil windings and produces a field flux
when the points open this field id collapsed and that produces the high voltage for the spark ( understand that current has mass and when the points open the current still flows and that is absorbed in the condenser-- that continuing current flow acts like an arc welder and burns the points )
to make this collapse happen faster the condenser back feeds current through the coil windings and so the voltage is boosted from 12 volts to around 17,000 volts
This relative low voltage induces a high current flow which over a short operating time burns the center electrode of plugs away , requiring frequent plug gap adjustments and plug replacements
problems associated with points include
point gap constantly closing from the wear block being worn away
point bounce at high rpms
coil flux saturation falling off at high rpms reducing the intensity of the spark
water and moisture in the distributor causing loss of spark
on the other hand with electronic ignition there is no points to
get wet
close up
no condenser to fail
points burn
the electronic system works on a much lower voltage ( 5-7 volts) and a pulse that initiates the action in an electronic circuit that is controlled by transistors and capacitors
This allows for a more rapid increase and decrease in the coil field flux and that increases the voltage to the vicinity of 60,000 volts
this reduces the current across the plug gap and that results in longer plug life and no change in plug gap settings ( EFI systems using quality plugs will never need changing of the plugs from electrode loss)
as electronic systems are sealed there is no problem from water as there is with points , although the same problem remains with moisture in the distributor cap
Now we have a low voltage spark with high current flow to ignite the mixture against a very high voltage with low current flow to do the job
to make it even better some electronic systems will actually continue a series of sparks so that the flame in the mixture is continually being ignited as against the one spark from a points system ( the air fuel mixture is not static but continually rotates -swirls in the combustion chamber)
what does this mean
better economy at higher rpms
better burn rate of the mixture producing power for all of the power stroke
smaller coils
with ECM units that control the ignition , it also controls the ignition timing according to rpms , and throttle setting and mixture setting reducing the need to alter the spark timing for different fuel octane ratings and altitude conditions as it is done automatically to suit the reports from all the sensors
So as I said
electronic system win hands down over points every time

The heather computer indicates:Flow and does not come on

Without knowing what heater manufacturer or model, or whether this is a burner style furnace or heat pump, I would surmise a guess that you have a flow issue, a restriction in your water flow. Most water flow issues are corrected by cleaning the filter.
many people who are not in the know, or don't understand these type of things, always ask what does the filter have to do with my heater?
heaters need to have the proper amount of the water flow through them for them to fire safely and efficiently. When that water flow is reduced or restricted there is a safety sensor that senses improper water-flow, and will not allow that heater to operate. Remove the restriction, and that specific sensor that senses for proper waterflow, will allow the heater to operate.

What is my current rate

Which current are you referring to ??......

If you think of an electrical device as a piece of plumbing, voltage is the amount of water that you send down into the pipe, resistance is the pipe's relative width or narrowness, and current is the speed with which the water flows.
Power measures the water's relative difficulty or ease making its way through the pipe.
You relate all these values to one another using a common set of physics equations known as Ohm's law.
If you need to calculate electricity's current flow, you'll need to have at least two of the three values -- voltage, resistance or power -- listed above.

Calculate current flow using voltage and resistance.
According to Ohm's law, you can express electricity's current in amps as a ratio of its voltage in volts to the resistance of the device it's flowing through in ohms -- I = E/R, respectively.
For example, if you want to know the current flow of 220 V of electricity as it flows through a laptop computer with 80 ohms of resistance, you would simply plug these values into the equation as follows: I = 220/80 = 2.75 amps.
Calculate current flow using power and resistance.
Ohm's law also states that electrical current, "I," is equal to the square root of the power dissipated as it travels through the device divided by that device's resistance.
If a light bulb dissipates 80 watts of power and has a resistance of 55 ohms, you can calculate the electricity's current as follows: I = sqrt(80/55) = sqrt(1.4545) = 1.20 amps.

Calculate current flow using power and voltage.
If you have a space heater which dissipates 420 watts of power when it takes in 120 V of electricity, Ohm's law states you can calculate this electricity's current using the equation "I = P/E." For this example, compute current like so: I =420/120 = 3.5 amps.

We have power to the system but elements do not come on and heat water when you turn on water. there is 238 volts between all phases. System does not kick on when you turn water on

Control unit or flow transducer. If the transducer(impeller in the clear tube) is spinning freely with waterflow, then the circuit board needs to be replaced.

I've got the Bosch AE 9.5 tankless water heater.

1) Cheapest and most reliable solution: Install tank-type electric water heater from local box store for $250. Get store coupons, offer 10% off store price. Repairs are made same day with generic off-the-shelf parts.

2) Install grundfo water pressure boosting pump.

3) Remove areators and low flow shower heads, Maintain unit as shown in product manual: Delime tankless unit yearly, Clean water filter monthly.

4) Call city and report low pressure and report issue as fire hazard, move to different apartment. Call apartment complex and ask why they didn't read flow requirements for tankless before installing tankless.

5) Call Bosch 866-330-2729 and complain that nobody read the flow requirement or tested local water flow before installing tankless.

Bosch AE-9.5 keeps tripping the reset

All resets and breakers trip with high heat.
Do you mean the tankless unit is tripping the 40 amp circuit breaker?
Or the thermal cut-out, located on unit, is tripping?

Is this a new installation?
Or was the tankless working before and stop working?

Copy following link to check wiring.
AE 9.5 requires 40 amp breaker and 6 gauge wire.

If the unit is tripping the thermal cut, -out, then product manual says to call Bosch or service technician.
Call Bosch 866-330-2729
Thermal cut-out can trip if water flow is too low.
Try changing power selector screw from Hi to Lo so only 1 element is ON. See diagram page 6 of manual.
Adjust the 'outlet service valve:' The manual recommends that a ball valve be installed between hot outlet and faucet. Adjust the valve so more water flows to faucet.
Remove aerator, clean aerator, don't use low flow restrictions or low flow shower heads, replace leaky faucet cartridge on single-handle faucet.

I always have problem in starting my ford focus ghia 1.8 TDCI from cold. if its standing for 6-7 hours, it takes ages to start again, most of the time I need jump leads, though battery is fine.

There are a number of variables within the smaller Ford vehicles, due to their smaller alternators and loads. So, here are a few questions which may help to narrow down the culprit.
Generally, this involves the fuel/air intake or electrical supply to the cylinders.
While trying to start, does the engine backfire a fair amount? If so, the issue is most likely electrical, and this can be caused by a variety of things. Gas-powered engines tend to backfire when the fuel/air mixture isn't ignited by the spark plug before the valve(s) open for exhaust (but not always).
Does the engine sound like it's trying to start, like firing intermittently, but laboring without backfiring until the battery is dead? ...and, are there any other sounds, like clicking or "clunking" sounds prior to the battery going dead?
1) If the vehicle is fairly new, understand the limitations of the electrical system, especially if you added any after-market items (big stereo, large bass box, etc.), which may require a heavy electrical current to power. It could be as simple as having some sort of power disconnect to these devices, so that all of your battery power can be directed to the spark plugs, and perhaps upgrading to a higher output alternator and battery with more CCA capacity.
2) If the vehicle is older, or has high mileage, it could be the electrical distribution to the spark plugs (any number of places this can happen, between the battery, the regulator, distributor/electronic ignition module, etc.). Also, check your battery terminals, because often the corrosion limits current from the battery posts to the electrical system (check the cables, too, where that blue/green corrosion can build up), which can be cleaned (after disconnecting) with a mixture of baking soda and water to neutralize it, or replace the battery cables altogether.
Fuel / Air Intake Mixture:
1) If an older vehicle, check the fuel filter and/or fuel pump, to make sure there isn't something going on to limit the flow of fuel. Likewise for the air intake filter. Sometimes, the automatic adjustment within the vehicle for cold starting isn't working properly, which can cause problems like you're stating, so that needs to be adjusted and/or replaced.
These would be the easier things to check first, and of course a number of other elements could be at play, such as cylinder compression (bad rings), spark plug build-up (usually from misfiring, requiring spark plug cleaning or replacement), major fuel/air intake or electrical system malfunction.
Unfortunately, without more specifics, it's difficult to diagnose accurately. However, I hope this gives you a few areas to look into, which may provide an answer and solution for you.
Good luck!

Front and back speakers quit working but my subs still work. Is this a fuse problem?

Don't know,but I doubt each different speaker would be fused

Something NO ONE seems to understand IS

Look at an actual fuse
They are no more than a piece of wire
They don't do anything

They just sit there and wait for high current
flow,that causes them to get hot & melt,thus
breaking or opening the circuit they protect.

If a fuse ever opens or blows you DO NOT replace it

You find out why it blew,you have problems down steam
in the wiring.

I have a Toro Monitor II (pin type, model #:172-06-11) yard sprinkler system. My wife and I bought this house about a year ago (foreclosure) and I am just now getting some time to look at the sprinkler...


Two possibilities, one, the heads have valves in the bottom of them, and they are controlled my the water pressure in the tubing. You should have one valve, or possibly your meter, that turns the system on, but thats it for valves. The second possiblity, is hydraulic valves. The tubing from your controller goes to valves in your lawn that are controlled hydraulically. In both cases, as long as the tubing is pressurized, no water flows. Once your controller stops the flow of water to that particular tube, water flows.

Either way, if you have that controller, you don't have electric valves. Hope this helps.
