    I'm sure the black disk is a lens cap. What kind of celestron telescope is it? refractor, reflector or shmidt cassgrain?

Are you talking about the dust cap on the end of the telescope? It either screws off, or is just friction fit and comes off.

Need more details-- what brand and type of telescope do you own?

I have a MS1000 Black and Decker Cyclone round sander..looking for replacement sanding disc

Hello, W/D here.
Most sanding disc types are available at the larger box hardware stores. They are (sometimes) generic or exact replacements.
I use the "Gator" brand on my B7D sander, and the discs work just fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

Xbox 360 the draw wont open, only will open a little bit but not enough to put a game in ..

Sometimes cleaning the belts inside the disc drive is enough to get the tray to open and close again.
First follow the tutorial for your drive to get the tray open here:

Take a look at this picture.. this is the drive disassembled(you do not need to disassemble the system at all.. stay with me a sec). See that white circle all the way on the left and in the middle of the pic. Not the white gears, the white circle that is right nex to the gears. It's got a little black belt that is attached to another black piece. That is the belt you need to clean.

Now.. how to do this without opening the 360?

First of all make sure the 360 is completely off and the power is disconnected.
Hopefully you've already gotten the disc drive open using the manual eject instructions above. With the tray completely ejected look into the opening for the tray. You can see that white piece and the black belt are right there easily accessible with the disc tray open.
Now you will need to do this to both sides of the belt!
Dip the Q-tip in rubbing alcohol.. Dab it a bit so it's not dripping off, you just want it nice and damp.
Gently place the Q-tip on one side of the black belt.
While continuing to gently press on the belt with the Q-tip you should close the disc drive about an inch or two, then open it back up again.
Repeat this process with the other side of the belt.
If it's very dirty you can do this a few times.
Let it sit for a few minutes and you should be good to go! If not you will need to replace the disc drive motor... however this will usually work about 75% of the time. Let me know if you have any questions.

Then take a Q-Tip and dip it into rubbing alchohol.

Nikon FG 35mm

If its black when you look thru the viewfinder its likely because the mirror is stuck in the up position. It will often do that if the batteries are exhausted. Try replacing the batteries.

The mirror might release back down if you turn the shutter speed dial to M90. This is a manual release of 1/90 second for when you need the shot but don't have any power.

When you look in the lens opening and adjust the aperture dial, you are seeing the aperture open and close. Not the shutter. You need to open the back of the camera (without film) and take a photo to see the shutter curtains open and close.

You should have a read thru the manual to become familiar with the camera and its operation:
