Pick up and throw out. purchase new one. If the tape head or foot. (End grabby bit) has broken or moved to far the tape will not read accurate. So if youre using a tape that has to be calibrated or has to be accurate its useless.



hope it helps.

How to repair a Stanley powerlock 16 measuring tape ?


From the the attached photo I see that you have completely disassemble the tape. This makes the tape almost impossible to reassemble. The spring has to be back wound fully, the blade attached and retracted back into the case using the back wound spring. This requires special equipment that is not overly complicated, however not possible to make for a once off use. I have designed, built and trained operators to use this type of equipment in a production situation, however in my 35 years of experience I have never been seen anyone back wind a spring by hand. Sorry to say but the tape is ready for the trash.

How do you get the door panel off of a 1996 Chevy Silverado when both the inside and outside door handles are broke.


If it's like most all other door panels, you have a couple of phillips screws in the arm rest, a screw behind the handle, (inside the vehicle), the window crank usually has a c=clip behind it, you can usually just push it out with a screwdriver. sometimes it's held there by a screw. The outer edges of the panel are held to the door by plastic rivits, just take a medium sized flathead screwdriver and pry it beteen the panel and the door, and slide it till hit one of those rivits, then just pull on the screwdriver thereby pulling out the rivits.

How to replace the broken pull rope


The link below will go over the process of replacing the rope on a briggs mower (process will be similar to your engine for basic idea)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iczCZaRiR0Q

If your starter is bolted to the fan cover it will be easy to remove the rewind and install the rope. If rewind is rivited to fan cover, pull off the fan cover or cut the rivets and then install new rivits (not enough space to use nut with bolt to hold rewind due to close proximity of flywheel). Post agan if you have other questions. Dont worry, easy repair.

Sd card will not stay in. Pops out. What can i do to fix it?


Most of these are spring loaded thus you here a click, This would be in a broken or worn out state, A work around would be unfortunately a piece of tape to hold it in unless you wish to pay over $100 for repair at this point?
There is no quickie fixya here these units wear out or become broken over use or mis use. Whatever your case may be it needs to be repaired professionally by a camera shop unless you wish to have a piece of tape there to hold the card in?
Most of these a spring loaded mechanisms thus do wear out over use.

Thanks for your inquiry I sure hope this information was helpful,
sincerely,

Our cat knocked over our flat screen LCD tv The sound still works perfectly however we have no image Can anyone suggest what may be wrong and how much it would cost to repair?


The good news is that the TV is not broke and can be fixed. You will first need to check for any cracks on the front screen of the TV. If there are any cracks then you will need to replace the screen itself, which ranges from $100 for smaller sized TV's to $500 for larger sizes. You should probably call a local repair shop and ask them for a quote. If there are no cracks then the problem may be from within the TV. If this is the case, then you will need to figure out what part of the LCD is broken. It may be either the LED lights or CCDL's (cold cathode fluorescent lamps) that are broken. You should take it into a repair shop and let them fix it, because messing with the LED's or CCDL's is very dangerous and should only be done by a professional. The LED's should cost $100 tops to replace and the CCDL's should cost about the same. Hope this helps!

Pull cord broken. After removing red hood and


You don't need to remove the rivets. There should be two metal tabs that bend over the nylon retractor, or it'll have a screw in the middle of the retractor pulley inside the cover. you bend those up a little, or remove the screw, remove the retractor, be careful, because that spring can be fun if it gets away from you, take the old rope out, put the retractor back in place, wind it back as far as you can, feed the rope in, tie the knot, and let it draw the rope in. Put everything back like you found it, and your pull rope if fixed.

How can I view hi8 video tapes on my VCR My HI 8


VHS units are not capable of reading Hi8 video. You could have a shop transfer your recordings for a nominal service charge but if you have many tapes you may want to have your own unit repaired. You could purchase another unit second hand but be wary of doing so as the tracking could be slightly different to your own one and you would need a service centre to adjust it anyway. Best of luck!

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...


very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.
