I solved this problem Friday night and I have to give credit to a Blogger who suggested buying JB Weld to re-connect the center ring. I cannot find that blog again but if you are out there, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Here is what I did in more detail and I hope it helps you:

1. JB Weld is and epoxy sold at Home Depot. Go buy it for $5.00
2. Get a piece of tin foil and place the equivalent of 1 drop from each tube onto the foil. The product is activated by mixing the 2 drops together. I mixed this this with a wooden toothpick.
3. Put the outer ring in place on the camera and be sure to line it up correctly. Practice this several times if you have any doubts. Also practice dropping the center ring into place wtih the appropriate alignment before you apply the epoxy! If you do not have a steady hand find someone who does and let them do this for you.
4. After you mix the 2 drops together with the toothpick, apply just enough to the 4 anchoring post on the center piece to cover the tip of the post. This is a very small amount and had be questioning whether it would be enough. It was perfect. I did not apply any to the center post. Not sure if this was something that would be okay.
5. With the epoxy on the tips of the post, carefully drop the center ring in place (play/pause button should be straight up). Make sure that it is in place and put a heavy book on it for 24 hours. I used a Websters Dictionary.
6. Remove the book and it should work for you.

I feel confident that I saved myself a $400 fix.

How do I make a button hole

Put on your buttonhole foot. Slide the foot plate back and set the button in the back...this is how the machine knows how big a buttonhole to make. Pull down the buttonhole lever, gray plastic, which is to the left of the needle. Now use the stitch selector to select the buttonhole. Test your machine on a piece of scrap fabric to make sure your buttonhole function works, before trying to sew on your garment. If it does not work, then bring your machine in to your local Baby Lock dealer.

Back wheels will not click back in. have tried to clean the inside incase of a build up but none

I had the same problem. It was a sort of buildup which was ammazingly problematic. I undid the small screws on the inside of the wheels (1 screw per wheel). Be careful because a spring and black plastic piece will fly out. then use a screw driver to push the gray wheel removal button. You will find that it seems sort of stuck. Clean inside the plastic chamber and the slider piece...I just used my fingers. Then you will see that it slides freely. Put the sliding piece in the correct position for when the wheel is removed...button depressed. Put the wheel on. Push the sliding piece with a screw driver so that the wheel is locked and the button is popped out. Put the spring back in and the black plastic piece back....hold it on and redo the screw. The wheel should be locked on. I am not sure if you would be able to remove it and put it on again...I think so, but I am not trying since I don't usually remove the wheels anyway. I hope this works for you too! Good luck!

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive

As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
