Can a partly cracked cd be repaired? The crack runs from the middle only just onto the recordable surface area. If the cd cannot be fixed would it be possible to retrieve some of the photos from the none damaged area?

What to do when the screen is cracked ?


You can take it to Best By Geek Squad, or find a repair shop that is in your area. They usually run $95 starting out on screen fixes. But it can be more if there is something else wrong with the tablet.

My screen cracked. Can I get it fixed with my warranty through kmart?


You don't say exactly what you have with a cracked screen, so the final decision would be up to whoever made the product. A retailer like K-Mart normally has nothing to do with servicing what they sell, beyond possibly taking something in to send to a service facility. The K-Marts here in my area don't even do that, unless the product is something Sears would service, and you have a service plan covering the product. But check with your local K-Mart to see what they have to say.

Since you say your product has a cracked screen, I suspect it's unlikely you would be able to get this fixed under warranty in any case. Screens don't just crack on their own. It's usually because something hits or falls onto the screen or someone drops the product. Unless you have a warranty that covers everything, no questions asked, the manufacturer will probably refuse to fix the product without charge. A cracked screen they will usually say is caused by abuse, and will charge for the repair, at least for the part.

There is a crack in the outer plastic tub of my washer. Can you give me specific directions on what I need to do to remove the old one and put it all back together?? Its a Magic Chef HTW4300TQ0


Hello, W/D here. I just wrote this today for another person, who had a crack at a fitting behind a counterweight on a front loader. The instructions are very workable for you as well. If you decide to remove the tub, here's a link to an exploded diagram for the teardown and order that the parts go together:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fW0702082-00003.png

Here's my earlier post to repair in place (as you read this please remember that that person was needing to make a repair where a molded nozzle cracked at the tub):

If you washer is still in warranty, you should let the company make it right.
If not, you can make repairs yourself. Epoxy is
useful for repairing cracks in tubs. I roughen up the area to be epoxied and apply fiberglass mesh (the self adhesive wallboard tape) to the area, and then applying J-B weld. I've never had a repair like this break. Overlapping the joint of the tape pieces contributes to the overall integrity of the repair. Just don't put down so much tape at one time that the epoxy can't get to the surface of the drum. Several layers, with curing time in between applications is the best way to go. Depending on where the crack is, the repair is easier to apply if the surface is more horizontal than vertical as the epoxy tends to try to run until it sets, so try to place the washer in a good position, if possible. Removing the tub may make this easier for you, but it isn't critical. If you DO remove the tub, make a similar epoxy repair from the inside of the tub, if possible. This will provide greater strength and sealing.
Hope this gives you better options, --W/D--

My Whirlpool WFW8310sw2 is leaking water during the rinse and spin cycles. After opening the bottom panel, I noticed that the water was coming around the cement. After tracing it, I found out that it is...


Hello, W/D here.
If you washer is still in warranty, you should let the company make it right.
If not, you can make repairs yourself. First, determine why the leak occurred. One common problem is a loose or damaged counterweight. If loose, it will need to be tightened up. I have seen a counterweight that was pre-stressed, with a rod between the mounting points that had broken, allowing the counterweight to hit the strainer. This can be repaired by replacing the counterweight part, or by strongbacking with aluminum, and epoxying the weight back into a solid mass. Epoxy also is useful for repairing cracks in tubs. I roughen up the area to be epoxied and apply fiberglass mesh (the self adhesive wallboard tape) to the area, and then applying J-B weld. I've never had a repair like this break. For your repair, I would recommend that you build the joint up well, with layers of the fiberglass tape and epoxy, and feather the repair out onto the drum surface area several inches. The fiberglass tape can be cut into strips and applied like a bandage, if you need to make wraps. Overlapping the joint of the tape pieces contributes to the overall integrity of the repair. Just don't put down so much tape at one time that the epoxy can't get to the surface of the drum. Several layers, with curing time in between applications is the best way to go. Depending on where the crack is, the repair is easier to apply if the surface is more horizontal than vertical as the epoxy tends to try to run until it sets, so try to place the washer in a good position, if possible. Removing the tub may make this easier for you, but it isn't critical. If you DO remove the tub, make a similar epoxy repair from the inside of the tub, if possible. This will provide greater strength and sealing.

My pump is leaking from the housing, not at a joint, but from the middle, like the housing cracked, but it only leaks when it turns on.


My roof is the same way ... only leaks when it is raining. Can't fix it in the rain and can't find it in the sun.

For best results, replace the pump. You may find the parts from the manufacturer. As you replace the part, you will discover there is stuff inside that will not only revolt you, it will make replacing the cracked casting more difficult.

If it is a small crack, you might be able to patch it with a procuct called MarineTex available at Ace Hardware, or other fine store in your area. If you live in an area where boating is a big past time, look at the Marina for this product.

Oh, BTW, I might have called it the wrong name, it is a two part exply boat repair kit product. Expect to pay $20.00 for a small supply.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

LG Tromm dryer has a crack in the drum. Can this be self repaired and if so how?


I'm a mechanical engineer and improvised a repair as follows: rotated drum so that the weld crack was not displaced; roughened surfaces and fitted a small Stanley steel mending plate across crack (shaped plate to match inside drum surface); used PC brand "Fahrenheit" high-temp epoxy putty to bed the plate in place; covered the repair with another thin epoxy layer to provide a smooth surface which would not catch on clothes; further smoothed repair with quick wipe of solvent; most likely a temp fix but working well so far (1 month).

Cd crack


Nope. If the metallic layer has been compromised, there is nothing you can do. If a "scratch" did not go all the way down, then you might be able to use a disc fixer to dig down below the "scratch" to save the surface, but if it's cracked, it's officially a frisbee!
