Rebel T2i won't power on

I had this problem and thank you to the gent that suggested there was a battery compartment closing detection mechanism. I have a battery grip and had removed that to register my t2i (needed the serial number on the bottom) and never checked operation after replacing. I toyed with the lever using a pen and noticed the red light flicker. I replaced the battery grip with batteries and all is well.
Sometimes we need a nudge to dig deeper... I had looked at the possibility of a door closed switch much the same as the the switch on the sd card door. I took a second look and found it. Thanks a million for jogging my analytical brain!

Bicycle rear derailleur slips back to high gear.

It is likely that Phil has an old school Shimano Eagle rear derailleur.

I recently had a very similar issue with a Suntour friction shifter and derailleur. I tried replacing the shift cable and housing with no luck. Then I was told to replace the chain. Made no difference.

Then I took a closer look at my bike's shifter. I took my old one apart and the gear teeth that were supposed to keep the shifter from moving were worn down.

New shifter took care of it for me.

1979 XLS Sportster won't start, I took all the

The thing that looks like a small solenoid on the bottom of the oil tank is the starter relay. It has three terminals on it. One terminal should be red wire and should have battery voltage on it when you turn the switch on. One wire should come from the start button and the other should go to the small terminal on the starter solenoid. Contact me directly at I'll send you a schematic that shows how it's supposed to be wired. Look on the solenoid and see if you see some small numbers around each of the electrical connections. Also, the bolts that hold the relay on act as a ground. If you had the oil tank painted, you may not have a good ground connection on it.

Good Luck

Head gasket/ timing etc

Not 100% sure on that engine, but I'd be looking at my timing chain & gears, especially if gears have nylon teeth. Pull covers & have a look at condition & positioning for correct. Other thing I'd check is distributor & especially gear at end of shaft. If metal gear at bottom, you should be o.k.,but if nylon,could have melted.heated & distorted or broke. Be sure to mark it for re-install & don't crank engine before re-install.

Great job! The motor module is bad, there were quite a few defective ones but the new ones have different colored writing on them ( I think Blue vice red). A new module is cheaper at, it's where I get my stuff from. The new modules should last about 7 to 10 years.

The problem may be in the busing or the shaft that actually holds the gear in place. try turning it by hand, and also try turning it with a little bit of pressure. Check the shafts and especially the base of the gears where they are mounted. Sometimes those gears will wear down at tht point from constant pressure and rotation, causing the gears to slip during operation.
