How do I get the dang thing apart? There are two screws on the bottom but the brass looking base does not budge. I've already scratched and bent this base. Afraid to continue with the destruction!

Sidney, you need to provide more information about what you are trying to take apart. Make, model and if possible provide a link to photographs of the item on Flickr or some other photo hosting website.

How do I take apart a Boston Acoustics BA7800 subwoofer?

If you've undone the 8 screws on the back panel... I would suggest the only thing holding it in is..... it's an interference fit... try carefully prising it out.

Try using an easy out (special tool for undoing broken threaded tubes and fittings) or a flat blade screwdriver and stick it into where the broken part is. Try to unscrew whats left of the broken tube.

Delonghi DH400p dehumidifier running but not collecting any water ? Humidity is 68 set to 50???

Hey, I had the same thing with mine.

First, try cleaning out your filter if you haven't already. It gets angry if it can't get any air.

If not, I don't know how brave you are, but I ripped mine apart to fix the problem. I took off the panel with the filter (5 screws) and you can see a collection tray with another little collection gutter under that. Both of mine were filled with junk, mostly dust that had gotten wet to make this awesome disgusting sludge. If you can get at it from there, try to clean the sludge out of the collection tray and the little gutter. I ended up taking my whole unit apart so I can get the collection tray out (dumb design, you have to take apart the whole dang casing to get at two screws that hold the collection tray in).

Good luck!

Ive been trying to change my headlight buls on my 04 eclipse gts. im trying to pull out the power connector like everyone says. but the dang thing just wont pop out!!! ive yanked on it tryed doing slowly....

Did you remove the cap that covers the bulb socket? There will either be a plastic cap that twists or a rubbery dust cap that the wires go thru. IF you have the cap, twist it 1/4 turn counterclockwise and pull it back. IF you have the dust cover, squeeze and get it out of the way. If your bulbs have a number like 9005 or 9004 you should be able to unplug the old one (may have to release the clip with SLIGHT pressure from a screwdriver). If the bulb number is like H3 or H7, or if you have the rubber cap there is most likely a clip that looks like a bent paperclip with a screw at each end.--You have to get that out of the way-it holds the bulb in the light.

I actually have an HP Pavillion zd8000 where I need to install a new DVD "D" Drive. I have removed all of the screws, including the ones under the battery, by the Hard Drive, the back base of the monitor...

Generally, the optical drive can be removed without taking the casing apart, just one screw holds it in under the laptop. If yours is one of those that does need to come apart, you will need to make sure that the two screwsat the rear of the laptop are undone. When you take the bexel off where the power button is, there will be two more screws holding the hinge in, they need to come out too. Then you need to remove the LCD screen before the rest of the case will come apart.

I turned the cam part of the switch the wrong way and now switch always stays open circuit. The cam causes the switch arms to touch. By turning the cam the wrong way, the switch arms get bent and now won't...

I have a 88W and a 200 W power units that had the same problem after I turned the ON/OFF post the wrong way. I took both units apart after finding the screws. On the 88 W unit there a three screws, two obvious and the third under the timing wheel. Pry the wheel off using two paint can lid pry tools. Note that the only thing holder the wheels is the center piece pointing to the ON/OFF post. Find the switch that surrounds the post inside and you will find that the switch brass wipers are bent. They need to be pretty much in a straight line (not knowing what they originally look like. It's pretty amazing engineering but ought to not damage when turned the wrong way.
The 200W unit is the same design except comes apart differently. There are two screws slightly under the label at the two bottom front corners. With an exacto knife peel back the corner about 1/2 inch to find them. The other two are obvious. Bend the ON/OFF switch wipers the same way. Note that after they are bent properly, if you turn the post one tick, (a tick is the amount that the timer, red and black ON/OFF clips cause the post to turn), it contacts should connect then disconnect for the next tick.

I can't get the brass cartridge out a a Harrington Brassworks faucet. Any advice? I've taken out the pin and I've tried using pliers to unscrew, pull and generally muscle it out, but it won't budge.

I am not familiar with this cartridge, but, an old trick , take it all apart, place handle back on, place screw back in handle, and yank it straight up. good luck,
