I replaced my 97 s10's fuel pump checked the fuses &checked the relay & reset my computer changed my fuel filter disconected my security system & still can't get my fuel pump to co


The oil pressure sending unit could be bad. If your oil pressure gets below 7psi than it shuts off all power going to the fuel pump. It is screwed into the engine block just to the right of the distributor.

I have kenwood excelon ddx 7015 unit powers up but says a cord is not pluged in. Wanted to know if this unit has a internal or external brain box and if it has an external brainbox how do i find one


I have a DDX7015, and can tell you that the unit is completely self-contained. You can get a kds-p901 external 5.1 processing unit that deactivates the on-board processing brain; the 901 connects via fiber optic.
It sounds like your constant power (yellow) is not energizing. You can test that pretty easy - you should be able to hit the eject button with the car turned off, and the faceplate should lower.
Try pulling the unit out and checking the in-line fuses and the wires - you may find that the wires got crushed during installation. To test functionality, you can try twisting both red and yellow together, and connecting it directly to the battery. You may find that your 'constant power' in your dash is unable to supply the current this head unit needs (7-10A, if I remember correctly). If that's the case, you may need to run a dedicated wire out to the battery for the yellow. Make sure you put a fuse close to the battery. The fuse is not to protect the head unit, but to keep the wire from burning up in the event it gets shorted, so the fuse can be 20A or so (the head unit should have its own fuse). I hope your head unit comes to life - I've had 6 years of great service from mine, and it plays mp3s and wmas directly off of a data DVD, and works great with the KNA-DV4100 navigation system.
Good luck!

Does one600 polaroid camera needs batreries?


The battery is built into the photo pack and cannot be replaced separately. All Polaroid photo packs are now long out of date and most have flat batteries so are useless unless the camera is converted to accept an external 6v dc power supply.

Alternatively check out The Impossible Project for compatible alternative photo packs: monochrome only, just eight shots per pack and the images are unpredictable and tend to fade, but they're the only other choice if you don't want to convert your camera. The product is rapidly improving though and later this year the company plans to release colour photo packs as well.

We have managed to lose the rechargeable battery pack. Where can I get another one?


Oh my, not good. Well, you do need a battery pack. Contact the MFR for replacement pack via customer support, or check the voltage on the side, if using 9V, get a battery holder that uses 8 batteries[2 Xtra cells are used to disable the shutting off at too high a voltage due to the missing battery pack]go to battery space.com, and go to wires/connectors, and get the laptop connectors to make an external battery pack. Therte is a battery pack charger/I recommend accupower evolution. You have to google and go to other sites to get the rechargeable batteries and battery holder. You can get by with alkaline, but they would go rather fast due to the large screen size. You need that good brand name so they can be evenly charged due to the batteries being able to be run down further. You wont be wasting much voltage with alkaline due to the lower cutoff voltage, but 1st try contacting the mfr or googling to get that battery pack!!!I Hint: if using battery pack and you still want to add more battery life, drop the batteries to 6 on a 9V circuit. with original battery pack on, a 9V circuit would use 6 D cells on an external pack, 8 for a 12 volt.

Intel webcam cs430 EXTERNAL VIDEO INPUT SHOWS BLUE SCREEN-NO VID


I had the same problem (blue screen from external cam). I read a few unrelated posts that talked about USB2 vs USB 1 and internal PCI vs external USB hub so thought I'd try a few things. I unplugged my CS430 from an external USB1 (I think - it's a Belkin iPOD synch base with 5 USB ports) hub and plugged it into the front chasis mounted USB 2.0 ports on my Dell Dimension E310 and voila!!! the external cam works and no need to mess around with SP3 etc. Hope this helps.

Battery back needs to be connected to the DVD player when charging. connect the batter pack to player. Run the DC/out from the battery pack to the DC/in in the player. plug the charger into the wall.

if that does not work, you have a bad battery

External power battery pack


No. The EBP-100 is not usable, and we cannot guarantee compatibility with any other manufacturer's external battery packs.
