Accidently dropped scanner :P

I accidentally dropped my scanner once onto the floor. Although it did not leave any physical outer damage, when I tried to turn it on, it would not completly resgister into the computer. I am not sure how to fix it or if I should just buy another one. Please reply back so that I can get it running.

A qualified technician would charge about $50 to take a look at it. If any parts are broken, and replacement parts happen to be available, add another $50.

Or, buy a new scanner for $50 to $100.

My Toshiba Satellite A105 was accidentally dropped on the floor. When I turned it on and after choosing "HDD" from the Boot Menu, the screen would display this: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure,...

Sorry but Unfortunately Hard drives (HDD) are very susceptible to physical shocks and can be damaged that way. It may be possible to take it to a repair center to see if they can salvage some of you data but their are no guarantees.

If you found the information helpful please rate my response.

Apparently no physical damage but camera result shows internal damage of lens mechanism and lens assembly need to be replaced by local camera repair shop because camera will take apart for that and lens assembly can not be repaired, replacement is only option.
Let me know if there is additional question.

My scanner froze and now will not start back up. was not dropped or physically damaged in any way.

Try clipping the battery partially out of the device, and re-insert it while holding the power, and scanner trigger. Hope this helps!

Samsung S860 won't power on. light blinks green, will not start

I had a similar problem with this camera. although its likely you have damaged the camera (seek repair from authorised Samsung dealer. should have a 1 year warranty - although you may not be able to claim accidental damage) there is always a chance the batteries are stuffed. i spent hours trying to find out what was physically damaged before realising the AA batteries did not have enough CURRENT to support the camera. gave same symptoms. some new extra heavy duty batteries did the trick.

Worth a try before footing a large repair bill

I accidentally dropped my phone in a basin of water. Although I pulled it out immediately, I wonder if I have damaged it to the point where I need to purchase a new one. Currently I cannot get it to turn...

Try to get it dry keep it in hot place after removing the battery leave it for 2 days and then try to charge the phone, check when you switch on the charger any sound comens of starting the chargeing process, if possible try the phone with some other battery, as the service center is saying it cannot be repaird may be the interner circuits may have fgot damaged

You can also use a hair dryer after opening the cell phone.

Do not put the battery on or switch on the cell till the time you are not sure its dry completely.
You can also try this leave the phone in a bag of raw rice for a night it will become dry as the rice will soak the water

Check if this helps & let me know

Broken face on i pod nano

hello, nothing you can do at home to fix it. You need to either have Apple replace the device or send it out to a repair specialist. If the screen was cracked when you first took it out of the box, then you can get a warranty replacement. But be advised, accidental/physical damage is not covered under warranty by Apple... half the reason people feel so negatively over subjects such as this is because they are misinformed.

Rear tub bearing replacement

The shaft on the spinner basket may have worn and formed a groove, or, if the bearing seal was leaking, the shaft may be stuck because of rust. The best way I know how to get the spinner basket out, is to try spraying the shaft with a lubricant like penetrating oil, or WD-40 and letting it sit a while. Allow the lubricant to settle into the area where the shaft seats into the bearing. If this does not provide you with any luck, place the outer drum face down on something to elevate the spin basket up off the floor. I suggest using a couple of saw horses, or blocks of wood. Allow the outer shell to rest on supports, leaving the spin basket free. Place some padding or old towels on the floor underneath the basket. Take a mallet (I prefer a rubber mallet, as it tends to be less abusive) and tap on the end of the drum shaft. The spin basket should pop free and drop from the tub shell. I hope this helps you.

PS You only have to elevate the basket and tub off the floor enough to allow the spin basket to drop free of the tub. About a foot is all I would recommend. Make sure you inspect and clean the spin basket shaft once you get it removed. Some very fine emery paper is what I would recommend to make sure the shaft is not scored or have any rough areas. DO NOT use any electric sanders or dremils for this! It should be clean and smooth before re-installing. If you cannot get the basket free, or if you do, and the shaft is damaged, you may consider replacing it as well. Placing a damaged shaft into a new bearing may not seal properly.
