Hi,

The plastic used is a thermoset, so should not want to melt in order to join together again by that method.

I would recommend using a clear 2 part epoxy resin. Make sure all parts are clean using a degreaser - cleaner, and dry thoroughly for several hours before repair. Use elastic bands or tape to hold items in place while the adhesive sets - about 24 hours for full cure.

If there is still a problem after this, please contact again, or rate so that other may follow the advice given. Thank you.

My tilt steering wheel lever broke on my 2003 Oldsmobile Alero?


If you can't get a used one from a breaker (not sure what you call them in the USA, in the UK they are breakers or scrap yards), could you cut a piece of thin (2 or 3 mm?) plastic or metal and epoxy/screw it to the broken pieces on the side you can't see?

MODEL 760h WILL NO LONGER ADVANCE SLIDES


The KODAK Carousel 760H was manufactured approximately between 1971 & 1981.
The problem you are describing is most likely a broken cycle solenoid "link". This "link" connects the cycle solenoid and the slide change mechanism. Repair parts are still available, but this is a repair best left to a factory-trained technician. Contact an Authorized Repair Dealer.

When i push down the lever it doesn't stay down


remove the housing & you will probably notice the 2 ceramic pieces are burned out. (They maybe plastic) But these are the 2 pieces and the 2 long metal contact points that come together when the lever is pushed down. The 2 metal contact strips come together & make the eletronic connection to start the heating process. let me know if you find the parts.

HP 5550c Printer: install a toner cartridge and now the cartridge is jamed and unable to turn the toners as before. can not remove the cartridge.


The white plastic lever has broken and needs replacement. On the bottom left hand side bracket of the Transfer kit to it's left is a black plastic cover which pops off remove it and you will see a white plastic
lever which pivots on a bar with the transfer kit locking and unlocking the toner cartridges it often goes bad and tears. Hp should modify this and make this piece metal not plastic. You can manually pull and push down on the metal bar to lock unlock the toner cartridges for a temporary fix.

2003 toyota sienna lift door knob broken. how to open the ldoor


The handle that broke had a little 'finger' that actuated the release mechanism. The only way to open the back hatch is to remove the inner panel and push on the release mechanism.

Once off, you can either a) buy a replacement handle (expensive) or b) do what I did and simply make a piece of L-shaped metal to lever the release mechanism from the outside.

If your handle is completely off of the door you can look up under the little plastic cover (that hides the handle) and see the slot on the right side that the release handle inserts into. You need to stick the lever into that slot, and angle it down about 30 degrees from horizontal to get under the latch mechanism, which unlocks the hatch if you pry it upwards.

Remove the winding stem/crown.


There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
So, do as follows:
1) Push the crown in,
2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock Series 3


If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

VGB3 leg lock broke


On the velbon vgb 3, the leg locks consist of a lever, one or two pieces of metal and a plastic piece. The metal and plastic pieces rest in a depression against the lever. When the lever is pulled out, pressure against the smaller leg section is released. When the lever is pushed in, pressure against the smaller leg section is exerted, locking the legs in place. On the back side of each joint, there is a phillips head screw which acts as a stop to keep the leg section from coming all the way out. When the screw is backed out, the leg section can be removed, exposing the latching mechanism. If the only problem is that the latch mechanism came apart, it can simply be reassembled. If, however, something broke and allowed the latch assemby to come apart, that will have to be dealt with as well. My guess is that the phillips screw may have become loose, and the latch came apart.
