How do I fix a hairline crack in a cracked ceramic floor tile?

you cannot, only way is to replace crack tile. any "hairline restorer" "hairline paint" are simple cons and do not work! crack meant that these two bits move differently and need to be replaced with single unit, matter will go only worse.

How we can repair the broken badminton racket frame....

The only thing to do is replace it unless it's a hairline crack, which may still result in a larger crack over time, especially after each stringing.

My grill will not ignite. I tried both ways. What could be wrong?i hear the gas but it wont start

Ok, here is a check list for you of the most common lighting problems:

1) Check your tank. Is it empty or nearly empty? The tare weight (T.W.) of your cylinder is stamped on the collar. That is the weight of your empty cylinder, usually around 18 lbs. Weigh it on your bathroom scale. Propane weighs 4.25 lbs/gal. If it weighs around 20 lbs or less - Refill it. If not, go to #2.

2) Make sure you didn't turn the gas on too fast. Some gas hoses have a built-in excess flow valve that stops the flow of gas to a trickle if opened too fast. Close the tank valve and let sit for a minute. Turn the tank valve slowly and then try lighting it again. If it doesn't, go to #3.

3) Is the igniter sparking? Some are battery powered-check the battery or replace it. If you have a standard push button piezzo igniter or a rotary style igniter, check for spark. Can you hear or see the spark? It's hard to see the spark in bright daylight. It's easier to view the spark at dusk or dawn. It should spark an "arc" at the burner. If not, adjust it if necessary. The igniter wire may have a short, causing the spark to arc somewhere else along the wire and not at the burner. Replace igniter wire. It's also possible the igniter tip where it sparks has a cracked or broken porcelain portion of the igniter, causing the spark to not arc at the tip where it's supposed to. Replace the igniter piece. If not, go to #4.

4) You may have a rusted, clogged or damaged burner or venturi tube. With a flashlight, check for spider webs, wasp nests or dirt (mud) dauber nests in the opening of the venturi tube where it connects at each gas valve orifice. Clean it out manually or blow it out with air compressor. Make sure the air adjustment opening has not been changed. If it's closed too much, it will be difficult to light and cause lazy yellow flames. If it's not clogged, the burner may just be old and rusted and the holes are not allowing much gas thru anymore. It's also possible the burner has rusted so bad, it has too large of holes, falling apart or cracks along the seams. If so, replace burners immediately. It is unsafe to use. Your local propane co can usually order what you need and some will even do the work, if you are uncomfortable doing it.

Hope this helps! Good luck in your trouble shooting!

Ive noticed hairline cracks in the neck of my

In any pressurized system a crack will reduce your pressure. I'm not 100% familiar with this gun so I cannot be sure of exactly where the cracks are. Any time you have a screw on lid, or some type of cam that tightens the lid it's pressurized. Though this may last for years like this, I would not spray with it if it's cracked. It could be dangerous and very messy if it breaks.

My SONY tv KV-XF21M80 produces a continuous sparking sound

The tech is very likely correct. The EHT or flyback transformer can develop hairline cracks that allow leakage of high voltage that exists in this circuit. There are other related components that can also cause this, but the transformer is the most likely. This area in the set also builds up allot of dust also due to the high voltages and this aggravates the issue. I do not recommend operating the set very long this way as it may begin arcing inside and cause more components to fail. Replacing the part would depend on how much you want to invest in the unit. Get an estimate and go from there. Good luck.

It starts, runs and then just goes dead. It's un predictible except it happens once or twice a day.

You have several possibilities here....
If the issue is fuel: Fuel filter
If the issue is spark: HV coil has a hairline crack that gets larger with heat. When cool, internal connections are fine, when hot, internal connections open.
Otherwise: Computer chip that control engine timing and other functions has a hairline crack that opens with engine heat.

Corrective action is to have an ODB scanner check your cars "fault memory" to see what failures are being registered. I suspect that AutoZone would do the scan and tell you the faulty part for nothing - and Immediately.

PLEASE let us know what you find!

Can a hairline crack in a porcelain bathtub be repaired?

If your tub is porcelain over cast iron and the cast is not cracked your ok. If the cast is cracked then the chances of the crack continuing are great, more so with any vibrations and changes in weight distribution.

Hard starting in wet weather

Replace the ignition coil under the distributor cap. What you have is a hairline crack in it, and, when it is damp, the spark arcs out of the crack to ground, no spark. This is a VERY common problem with older Camrys. Take the coil off, and look at it real closely. You will see black marks on it, from the crack. I am very sure that this will eliminate your problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa!
