Depends on the telescope. If your has a mirror in the bottom and looks like a tube, with the focuser near the front, put the eyepiece in the focuser.

If you have a refractor style with a lens in the front -- the eyepiece goes in the "L" shaped diagonal and the diagonal goes in the scope. A diagonal looks like this--

This will also help you figure it out.

Fell in water. Removed battery and card. Dried it out. Still not working. Any hope?

If the lens is clear may I suggest baking the camera. With no battery or card in the camera put it in a clean container and place it in a car in full sun (Car is in full sun with windows rolled up). Do not put the camera in the sun, it should be in the shade inside the car. The high heat in the car may kill a dog but it should dry a camera. In most cases when people think the camera is dry it is NOT. In most cases a baking operation is really needed to fully dry the device.

If this fails then the water has left contamination. If the back is removed some Isopropyl alcohol, a brush and some patience you may be able to clean the circuit board. This is not a step for someone who does not know how to do this. Remember BAKE the camera first and after alcohol cleaning. Keep all alcohol from getting near the lens. This may be too difficult.

My dog will eat our food but will not eat his , he is being given wainrights he just wants our food

A dog can go without food for a few days and then will eat when it is hungry. Just stop giving your dog your food and at its normal feeding time give it a bowl of its food. If it does not eat it, take the food away. Then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog. If it has not eaten it within ten minutes take it away and then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog again. By now the dog should be happy to eat what it is given.

My ps2 slim is not spinning the game inside it fell by accident and now it not working but it turns off and on but doesn't spin the disk

You most likely knocked something loose that is interfering with the lens. Or the lens is permanently damaged. If this is the case, you can purchase a replacement lens and by following online video guides, you can replace your broken lens with minimal fuss.

Most likely, the lens movement gears are misaligned. There's also a good chance you misaligned the lens elements by knocking the lens sideways. It is not going to work, since it cannot move the lens to focus or zoom now. Your choices are to repair or replace the camera.

Terrible knocking/slapping noise ( can't tell which )

The smoke would be expected as would the temporary situation of poor performance. The grey oil is water emulsified in the oil. This probably had nothing to do with being knocked over. Normally the seals on the water pump impeller shaft go bad and leak water into the gearbox. I am going to take a guess and say the bike fell on its' left side. If so, chances are the shift lever was forced upward and the gear dogs did not line up with the next gear. This results in a bent shift fork (or two) and is $1000.00 or more to fix. I am guessing the metal to metal knocking is the dogs on a slider gear not fully meshing with the adjacent gear.

Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!

Frame around lens fell off

Do you mean the focussing ring fell off?

It can be reglued with Superglue, but be very careful not to use the glue from the tube or you could get it everywhere. First focus the lens on infinity. This is the furthest back or most withdrawn position of the lens. The infinity marking on the ring will be beside the diamond or dot indicator. Put a little bit of Superglue onto the end of a matchstick, and then use the matchstick to put traces of the Superglue on the lens barrel, exactly where the ring will sit. carefully place the ring on its correct position on the lens barrel.

My camra head fell off and now it will not stay on

Don't know if you still have the camera since this is an old post.

It's possible that something got knocked loose inside the camera when it fell. Also possible that that could be fixed but better left to someone who's good at opening up devices with small parts and putting them back together again.

There's a video on youtube (in three parts) where a guy takes one of these cameras apart to tighten the lcd screen and then puts it back together.

If you know someone who's good at that kind of thing maybe they could watch the videos and try to fix the camera.
