Use an ammeter to check the continuity. If it gives a reading there's a problem. if it reads 00.00 then passage of current is okay. if all fails -- replace wiring.

My kindle only goes to half battery and it keeps makeing me restart it


Could be it needs to be reset. With Kindle turned off, push power button and hold for 15 seconds. This will reboot it to its default settings and usually fixes problems. If it doesn't help, check to make sure the charging cord doesn't have a short it it. You can check it by plugging it into the kindle and watch the charging icon on top right. If it it shows no charging while wiggling the cord around then the cord could be bad. If not you would need to replace the battery.

I have an equalizer pro handheld massager eq700 and when using it it seems to have a short. I have to keep wiggling the cord by the base to make it work. How can I have it fixed?


I have been repairing the EQ-700 for a local chiropractor for 6 or so years. The unit is discontinued with no parts available so I have to fabricate or rebuild parts. A bill of $200.00 to repair one unit is not unusual so you really have to want this model

My dls 3500 mower will not start at all, I charged the battery but the engine wont even turn. All the wiring and fuses seem to be ok


I had the same problem. I replaced the wiring harness for a short fix, corrosion in the terminals that connect to ignition switch. This worked for a while. Then replaced ignition switch this also worked for short time. Now I just open the hood to reach behind the ignition switch and wiggle wires while turning key to start until it starts keep wiggling to get good contact. If it won't stop after it starts, wiggle wires after you turn the key to off. It will stop.

Dies in the water. Then wiggling electric cord that connects directly to aquabot sometimes will get it going for a short time, but not always.


It's very common for a cord to have a break internally on this cleaner. Unfortunately the fix requires you to send the unit away for service. Sorry...

Rowenta Iron-Professional Luxe The power cord seems to short out when you move iron. You can wiggle it next to the movable ball and it clicks on and off. The two screw heads on bottom appear to be special...


I drilled out the nubs in the center of the screws. removed the screws, and took off the back plate. The problem is that the cord seems to be abraiding when it swivels, and eventually wears thru. It seems like a fire hazard and should be looked into by Rowena. Anyway, I cut out the damaged cord and reattached it. Problem fixed..

Problem starting


This can happen if you have an intermittent short in your cord. Try plugging it in and then wiggling the cord around where it goes into the body of the vacuum with the switch set to "on." (If you're not sure whether it's on or off, just click it back and forth occasionally.)
If the motor kicks on there's a short, which usually requires a cord replacement. If that's the case, it's a relatively simple fix for most dyson models.
If not, you could have a short in your switch or somewhere else in the electrical system of the machine.

Not charging


Hello brocstar,

You could have a problem either with the power cord itself or the DC input jack on your GPS.

When you say you wiggled the "power lead" to fix the problem I believe you are referring to the actual power cord. If so, it's possible that the cord has a short that has progressively gotten worse and eventually caused the cord to fail. In that case it should be a relatively simple fix to simply replace the power cord and that's where I would start.

If replacing the power cord doesn't work then the problem likely is with the GPS itself and the unit may need factory service to repair the DC jack, battery or charge circuitry.

Hope this helps,
Ken

Only one earphone (right) is working


The problem is in the ear-phones, not the player. Return the phones via warantee if available. You should be able to wiggle the cord at various places along the cord to find out where the short is. (One of my sansa's phones had a short close to the plug itself.) If you know how to perform basic wire splicing/sodering, and melt a piece of shrink tubing (from Radio Shack) over the splice, you can fix this yourself. The sansa phones I have are real good, and worth saving, however don't be afraid to buy some really good ear-phones (over $50) if you cant fix the cord.
