I have used philips triple head razors since 1969, all worked well however my 18 month old RQ10 arcitec shave head only lasted 16 months, it dosnt have the self sharpening feature or detail cleaning...

Philips suggests that you change the heads on your shaver every 12 months. This is the life expectancy on newer models. There are not any other options but to change them as needed.
For replacements, see at the link below

What does a flashing red light at bottom of display when you turn razor off mean looks lit the 3 rotary blades

It means they want you to buy a new shaver head. U dont need too, and the light will automatically go off after 7 shaves from when it first came on.

I have two wall switches in a hall for an over head light. I would like to install a rotary dimmer in one of the switches. My dimmer has 1 green and two black wires, and my wall switch has 2 black, 2 red...

You cannot, at least not using the dimmer you have in your hand. The switch with all the wires is a four-way switch, which is used to make a "suicided" 3-way switch. The power comes in AND goes out to the light from that switch. The other switch is a 3-way. Neither one has the "ON" or "OFF" marks on them, do they? You can buy a 3-way dimmer, but i do not know if rotary-style 3-way switches exist. You will have to install the dimmer at the other switch because i am quite certain no 4-way dimmers are available.

I purchesed a 2003 engine 3.0fwd online I had it installed the machanic did not change the timeing belt. will this distroy the upper cylinder heads and cause the engine not to start

if the engine jumps time (most likely at start up) it will bend several valves in cyl head. when this happens the engine will not start or run. the effected cyl head or heads need to be removed and reconditioned or replaced. cyl heads probebly ok but valves will be bent.

Print head proplems on the hp photosmart 3310

ok, if you are using old cartriges, might want to try some rubbing alcohol on a tissue. This has worked on a number of cartriges in the past when i start getting missing pins. it lubricates the holes so in can flow again.

Take a q-tip and do the same if there's any kind of print head, but most print heads these days are built into the cartrige.

Tape Transport

Be sure that whoever is replacing the elevator assembly ( transport module ) is putting in a NEW part and not an old part that is still works.

I would start doing this repair yourself... there are only:

4 screws


2 cables: one that powers the cassette load\unload motor
and the other is the tape sensors cable

once you pull the cover

they are very small phillips head screws: you NEED a very good, long, small Magnetic tip screwdriver.

Tthere is a manual screw drive near the loader \ unloader motor: it has a Red plastic phillips head drive screw.
This manually moves the Loader assy in and out: you will need to move it to uncover the two screws that are near the front of the machine.

when you find these screws: its a good idea to mark them with a red Sharpie, for easy finding next time..

If the machine is getting heavy use, then 5 months may not be that bad, if the machine is babied should last alot longer.

either way you can get a handle on the situation and save youself some money by bringing this particular service 'In House'

I did this fix last week on this unit.
it took me 15 minutes.

Brother DCP 115C

Yes, another suggestion is to give it back to the dealer or a service partner which can be found on the homepage of brother. If the printer is 3 months old you are in guarantee time. Its a common problem with the printheads that one color (M or Y) is lost somehow sometime...! (Valveproblem within the printhead) You cant fix it yourself (May need a new printhead).
