I assume you are talking about the electrical contacts. The best solution it sounds like is to solder it if you have a soldering iron. I would just buy a new fan if it is a small one.

Spy pen not working


If you have a Spy Pen, sometimes it just appears to be either stuck with the light on, or dead and won't turn on. We wrote this report to show you some of the tricks we found to getting your it to work again.
1. Perform A Hard Reset
The majority of the time, just inserting the end of a paper clip in the opening below the status light on the back, and performing a hard reset, will get your Spy Pen working. Just bend a small paper clip end out, and insert straight into the opening. When you meet resistance, push lightly, and you can feel the reset button depressed.
Make sure it goes straight in, and not at an angle, or you could damage some of the components inside. Let go and try to turn it on.
2. Rule Out The USB Cable
If you are using a USB cable to either connect the Spy Pen to your computer, or to the 110V wall charger adapter, one day the cable will fail. If you use the USB cable because you can't connect the pen directly to the computer, try just plugging it directly into the computer.
Don't use a USB hub, as sometimes there is not enough power for the it; just connect it directly to the computers USB port. On some computers, use the USB port on the back, as front USB ports are sometimes weaker.
3. Rule Out The 110V Wall Charger
Just like the USB cable, the 110V wall charger adapter will also fail at some point; so if it does not seem to take a charge, try charging it for 3 hours in the computers USB port. If the status light is on while its charging, its getting electricity to charge the battery.
4. Put The Spy Pen Back In Video Mode
Several Spy Pens have switches to go to photo mode, or voice activation mode. If you move the switch to change modes, and you do not move it back to video mode, the computer will say it is not recognized. Try moving the switch back to the original position.
5. Erase & Reformat The Spy Pen
If the Spy Pen shows up as a removable drive on your PC, just right click on the icon and let go on "Format." Then check the "Quick Format" button, then hit OK. The drive will be erased, and reformatted. This usually takes care of any pens that make it this far.

Your right on the money. What your referring to is damage or dislodged cable. Even quite possible damage due to mishandling or static electricity. Most Best Buys will be able to take a peek inside and tell you.

Power light will not come on.


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.

Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
If its still under warranty you might consider letting the shop look at it.

If not then open it and check the connections inside after you disconnect it.

Not unknown for them to work loose if the drive moves around a lot.

I have a dlink wireless router di 624 air plus xtreme g.


Are you operating the laptop with the wireless on and a cable too? You should probably choose one or the other and not both at the same time.

If you are only operating both computers on a wire then --

Assuming all cables are completely plugged in securely

If the problem is intermittent you may need to use your laptop in a normal fashion -- to see if any movement causes the disconnection. If there is a internottently defective cable when it is in your desktop it may fail less frequently, Meaning, it may work more consistenly because your desktop does not get moved around. (This last instance may avoid detection in this testing process)

Try swapping the laptop's cable with your desktop computer's cable at the computer end and see of the problem moves.

If it does not move you may have a problem with the ethernet port on the laptop -- end of test.

If the problem does not appear -- you may not have an issue or you may have a defective cable probably attached to the desktop now as noted above failing more infrequently so you have not observed it yet.

If it moves you may have either a bad cable or a bad router port -- continue test.

To determine which swap the cable's on the router end this time between the two attached ports (use the same ports with the opposite cable in each).

If the problem moves again it is the router port -- try switching the cable of the non-working machine to a new router port.

If the problem stays put is probably a defective cable. It will probably be easiest to replace the cable.

I hope this helps.

Cannot use tablet


I had that problem and I found two things that may cause it:

1- Installing the cable at a USB port otherthan the port you used the first time, which would lead to conflict - Try restarting your computer

2- Try removing the driver, restart computer and re-install it again.

Replacement USB port for my scanner, how can I find the one I need?


If you mean the USB Cable (not USB port as in your question) then you need a standard 'computer to peripheral' cable. It has the regular USB rectangular plug on one end (this part goes into the computer) and an almost-square plug on the other end (this part goes into the scanner.) I say "almost" square because it has two rounded corners to help with orientation.

As additional reference, these types of cables are commonly used to connect USB hubs to computers. For example, the USB hub built into my Dell monitor also uses this standard cable.

One end:
