FYI I just called Canon (1-800-828-4040) about the screws.
They are sending 2 screws out to me free of charge "as a one time courtesy."
Perhaps they got lots of complaints.
Thanks for your help

Those screws always fall out, you can get replacements easily online and make sure you put a little "Locktite" on them to hold them in so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "Canon SD790 screws" you will see a listing at about the #9 position where you can buy them for about $6 for the pair including shipping.

Hope this helps!

How difficult is it to replace the screen window?

About 45 minutes and its a bit fiddly. Bought original screen off EBay £42. Remove battery and SD card. Remove 3 screws from back plus 2 from metal strap bracket, 1 from bottom and 2 more from top button trim. Gently prise camera apart. Loosen 2 screws and slide out screen retainers. Remove Screen backing plate. Remove screen gently pull ribbon wire from camera body. Push new screen ribbon wire into socket - this IS fiddly but you must get it aligned right. Push into place with a plastic spatula - fit screen and protector and re-assemble. All you need is a watchmakers Phillips (+) head driver. Good luck.

How to remove rechargeable battery for norelco 7864

hi minglim, welocme to the forum!
    Replacing a Norelco Shaver Battery Things You'll Need:Torx screwdriver set Rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery 1)Slide up the sideburns trimmer on the shaver .2)Try the various torx head screwdriver sizes to find the fit for the two screws holding the top of the back shaver cover on. Unscrew the two screws that are under the sideburns trimmer that hold the back of the shaver on. On some Norelco shavers, the back will now slide off if you apply downward pressure on the shaver's back. Other Norelco shavers have one or two torx screws on the base of the back cover on the shaver; if so, unscrew them also. Place the screws in a safe place. 3)Take the back cover off the shaver. Some shavers may have a strap fastening the battery down. Unfasten the strap if there is one. Take out the battery. 4)Replace the old battery with a new rechargeable Ni-Cd AA battery. Re-fasten the battery holding strap if there was one. 5)Replace the back shaver cover and re-screw in all the torx screws,

We need to determine where the leak is...
Unplug it...
Start by removing the water resevoir...dry out what you can with paper towel...
flip it over on a table with a bath towel. Take off the metal bottom plate
you can then check for water inside the unit.

since you didnt say where the water is coming from... the K-Cup arm or the bottom...
I will assume the bottom is where the water is coming from.
Hoses on these units are fastened with 4 inch "Ty-Wrap" nylon fasteners.
You may have a broken one, and need to replace one... hopefully it is located on the bottom between the water fill and the main water motor... which you shouold be able to see when the bottom metal pan is removed...

If the water is coming out from the top. then I suspect hot water expansion is bypassing one of the valves, or there is a nylon strap/hose combination you cannot see instde the unit...

Hopefully it';s the bottom

Re:D-Link dgs-1005d mounting plates

For this as per my knowledge there are no extra mounting plates comming commercially. But itself having some mounting tools such as wall plug, screw etc. in it's package....and for permanent installation if you need it very much you can order such thing in turning workshop...but try to use it in friendly environment....because those are heat and hazard sensitive for heavy duty.....All the best.

I need to remove 2004 toyota sequoia tailgate door panel to get access the rear tail light to install a backup camera. I don't see any obvious removal points.

Slide the plastic cover off the tailgate ******** the passenger side to reveal a 10mm bolt.

Remove the bolt and the strap/

Using a flat prying instrument, remove the center trim section one the inside of the tailgate above the window.

Grab the top edges of the side trim sections on the inside of the tailgate and pull down to remove.

Using a flat instrument, pry at the bottom edge of the tailgate main trim panel, it is held on with about 12 plastic pop-in fasteners so it will take several 'pops' before it is released.

Behind that there is a metal access cover the width of the tailgate, held on by ~5x pop in fasteners and ~10x 10 mm bolts. Remove the bolts and pop the panel loose, it will hang by the wiring so support it while you do your camera work :)

The license plate trim panel, should you need to remove it, requires remoaval of the license plate.

Then remove ~3x 10mm bolts from the top of the panel, accessed from the inside.

Using long needle nose pliers compress the pop-fasteners holding the lower corners of the license plate trim panel on, being careful not to let it drop and slide down the vehicle, scratching the paint :)

Fuji s5100 batter door cover prongs are broken off.

I have the simple and cheap fix to a frustrating problem!
Just take a tripod base and screw it into the bottom of the
camera. The square tripod base is large enough to hold the battery
cover on the camera closed without any interference.
So there you go! No tape, rubber bands or other crazy contraptions!
Cheap, Quick and simple.

Casio JF-100TE Battery Replacement

Remove two screws at top. Then there are 3 hidden **** on both the right and left side of unit for a total of 6. Pry the case apart starting at top on one side. Then slide a small thin screw drive down the side till you come to first *** and pry just a little till it comes apart. The first *** is on the side at display height center. The next *** is between the GT key and division key on side. The next *** is on side at top of plus key. The case will now swing open like a door with the same 3 **** on on side of case. The top of case **** are female. The bottom of case **** are male. The battery slides in and out. Make sure you get + and - right.

My problem is I changed the battery but display still only works with solar power.
