    Depending on if and also which pins got crossed you could have fried it.. Thermostats are not very forgiving. which letter got bent? and in the direction of which other letter did they bend to? have you tried to straighten them?

Sorry to hear that, not to be the perveyor of the obvious but for everyone else.. ALLWAYS check and make sure your pins are straight when you do a battery change. OMG they charged you 300 for a thermostat? im very sorry

The digits are not showing and I have changed the batteries


Remove the cover to ensure the batteries were installed correctly. If they were, make sure none of the thermostat pins are bent a little cause mis- alignment with the pin-holes in the subbase. When you determine all is good, reinstall the stat to the base and make sure it is snapped securely in place.

Open the rear cover. Disconnect the large power plug.
Remove the retainer pin from the front footplate assembly.
Lift the footplate and front panel assembly up and then forward.
Slide the battery tray forward - minding that the battery power plug will need to travel to the front.
Once the tray is out, unsnap, unbolt and replace the batteries.
Reassemble in reverse order.

Hp laptop won't power on


Hello. It sounds like either...

1. Your power adapter is damaged/not working. Look and see if a LED is illuminating on the power adapter. If it is chances are it is working fine and the problem may lie on your laptop. If not replace it. The easiest way to tell if your power adapter is bad is to go out to Wal-Mart or your local technology store and purchase one of their universal power adapters. They are expensive but you can buy it, try it, and return it if it does not solve the problem.

OR

2. The DC pin on your laptop is bent/broken/loose. Look at where your power adapter plugs in on your laptop. Get a paper clip, bend it out to make a long paper clip and slightly push its tip on the pin inside your laptop. If the pin moves chances are either the DC pin needs to be soldered down or needs to be replaced. The part is usually cheap around $10 but the labor can cost more than $50

Charged battery in my harley 2008 v rod and now motor won't crank


Hi Doggy, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

When i insert a game into my daughters dsi it is not showing up on the screen. It just says there is no card inserted in the DS game card slot.


Use a small torch and look inside the game slot. It is most likely that one of the contact pins has been bent and is not macking contact. If any pins look mor bent than the others you may be able to bend it back into place. Remove the battery before you try any repairs (the battery is under the battery cover on the bottom of the DSi). After removing the battery, use a suitable tool such as a small screwdriver or an unbent paperclip to gently bend the pin back to the same position as the other pins. If the pin is too far bent to be repaired, then the game slot can be replaced but this requires desoldering of the game slot and this is not a task for a novice.

Just change the battery on my Nike Anvil WC0020 watch and the alarm won't sound for the timer as well as the two alarm settings.


If you changed battery yourself, you've lost the tiny spring without noticing it. Carefully check around the place where you changed the battery. The spring itself is very, very tiny, so, be as concentrated as much as you can. That spring (coilspring named by watchmakers) transmits the signal from watch movement to the watch back cover where the sound membrane is located. In case if you find it, open the watch and insert that spring with the bent out end first in to the desired hole in watch movement (should be named COIL SPRING). After that re-assemble watch and the sound should work.

VOSTRO 1710 BATTERY WON'T CHARGE


If the battery will not charge, try this:

1.) First, power reset the unit by powering it off, unplugging it from AC power, removing the battery, then push and hold the power button on the unit for about 60 seconds.

2.) Next, plug the AC adapter back in (LEAVE THE BATTERY OUT), power the unit on. Does the unit power on?

If yes, Power the unit off and put the battery back in, let it charge overnight. If, after this the battery will still not charge, you will have to replace the battery. Contact the OEM to ensure you get the correct battery.

If no, remove the AC adapter carefully, look inside the DC port (where the charger plugs in to the laptop) you should see a small silver pin. Is this pin missing or bent? If the pin seems to be in good shape, then most likely you will have to replace the AC adapter. If it IS bent or missing, then you will need to contact a laptop repair center.

Bent pin when i charge


I asume the pin is in the computer. Remove the battery from the computer. With a small slot type screw driver, try to reach in and straighten the pin. Be very gentle and do not break it off. If this happens you will have to replace the power connector in the computer, not an easy task.

No power to air/heat system, fan does not work.


To remove the front light, you have two pins. take them out and the the whole light comes out. Then just remove the back bulb housing and replace the bulb. Pretty easy.
