I need the black bakelite cog on top of the Magic Bullet drive shaft. Mine split into four pieces as did my daughter's Magic Bullet power base. This appears to be the "Achilles Heel" of the Magic Bullet. Could it not be constructed of a very hard rubber composotion? Pass this suggestion on to the manufacturers of the Magic Bullet!

    Manufacturer should be advised of this flaw in the Magic Bullet. If my new one fails again, I'll never purchase another Magic Bullet and will let other people know of this flaw.

    Same problem ! I managed for a few months by unscrewing the lesser-used one from the second base and substituting it for the worn one, but the same happened to it. I believe the material IS a Relatively hard durometer cast urethane, and it is meant to fail rather than the more difficult part to replace -the drive cog. BUT where can you get replacements ? And, I don't want to stop grinding ice cubes to make my smoothies !

My solution is that I purchased a new Magic Bullet power base and therefore won't require solution from your experts.

Htc p 3450 restart when i insert sim card without sim it is working ok

The sim card is little loose in it base so the contacts are not touching secure. You can cut a small piece of paper bend it four or six times and place it over the sim card. Now place back the battery and take care that the paper remains over sim card pressing it.
Place the back cover and noe the sim card will more secure and well connected.

I have a Palm z22 that won't keep a charge. My

The Palm Z22 is, I have found out, a bullet-proof design in regards to reliably keeping your valuable "DATA" safe over time. The Engineers at PALM really did a good job of Data integrity compared to many other devices. HOWEVER -- there are 3 common problems with the growing AGE of the Z22, 2 are with the dying batteries, and 1 with the years of wear and tear on the touch screen. The battery is a typical square, thin, modern Lithium battery, wired in with two wires ( + positive, red, and - negative, black ) that can be
taken out and replaced if you take the unit apart. In a brand new, in-the-box package, the battery is dying simply from old age. If the Z22 was used heavily, the constant cycling from dead to fully charged wears out the battery even more. The Touchscreen is a thin layer of plastic stretched over a sheet of glass, with a tiny air gap in between. Over time, the top plastic layer deforms - with hot and cold, air pressure changes, and being pressed by wearing the unit in a pocket, purse, briefcase, or even in a drawer with pencils, pens, and staplers etc. It is very important to have a hard cover over the screen! Other than just having the battery loose its weak charge continually, there is a problem with the unit getting into a state of BLACK SCREEN - it does not charge and remains "apparently" dead, since the logic circuits are in an invalid state, and it can only be reset if the battery dies COMPLETELY to remove the power on the logic circuits.
I have covered the topics of the battery problems, the data problems, the screen problems, and the disassembly, maintenance, and security, and how to get data off the unit, particularly to the new Windows Operating Systems that were developed AFTER the Z22 was no longer made. This is at
I have ripped apart the Z22 repeatedly, and posted pictures of the various steps to service these units. There are links to aftermarket software to transfer data, and examples of how to USE the Z22, for valid purposes. This should be a one-stop source for any information or troublehooting the Z22, for those who have the Z22 and want to keep it operating!
good luck

I have on scree this message: align screen tap the target firmly and accurately at each location on the screen.the target will continue to move until the screen is aligned . so i do it but the result is o....

98% of all Axim X5's with screen alignment problems can be fixed
using these instructions. The design of the unit eventually wears
through the ribbon connector to the screen, and causes it to be
grounded, which gives you the sympton of always needing alignment.
A 3mm piece of electrical tape will usually eliminate the problem
for several years. This is fairly easy if you have tiny screwdrivers,
but I assume no responsibility if this doesn't work or something breaks.

1. Backup data with ActiveSync's Backup/Restore function under "Tools"
on the desktop PC. If you use Vista's Windows Mobile Device Center,
it's under Mobile Device Settings-->more-->Backup and Restore.
If you use a browser, delete the temp cache, cookies and history files.
2. Remove main battery to uncover two screws, and remove backup battery
and any memory cards or blanks.
3. Carefully unstick the four rubber feet on the back, uncovering four
more screws.
4. Very slowly unstick the two rubber side panels, making sure most of the
sticky stuff stays on the rubber grip.
5. Use a tiny phillips screwdriver to take out the six screws on the back.
6. Carefully separate the front and the back halves of the case. A little
prying with a tiny flat screwdriver might help, especially at the bottom.
The half covering the top might have to be moved further up so the top
will clear the headphone jack. The front should have only the speaker
wire connected to it, which can easily be pulled up and off.
7. Locate the small mylar cable at the bottom of the front of the screen.
You'll see a nick or dent in the insulation right over the left wire.
Take a tiny piece of electrical tape slightly larger than the nick and
put it on. Don't push too hard on the cable.
8. Put the case back together, reversing the directions above. Plug the
speaker wire back in with the black wire on the bottom, red wire on top.
Put the top half back on starting at the top of the PDA by putting the
dark plastic part over the headphone jack first. Put the bottom half
back on starting at the bottom of the PDA near the sync connector by
putting the two easy-to-break snap-in nubs in place first.

Good luck!

My new sonicare toothbrush has gone all wobbly.... on the bottom the following numbers to help you identify the model, etc: 080416 HX6910 the vibrating pin onto which the brush attaches is no longer...

Your suggestion worked! I took a small common screwdriver, carefully pried on the bottom plate on each side, a little at a time, and the whole motor assembly with O-ring, came out in one piece. There it was, a small phillips screw, in this sort of universal joint assembly at the top. I tightened it up, careful, its pretty small, won't stand too much torque, but it's tight now, and I think you saved me $100 or so, mine was getting so sloppy I expected it to fall apart any day, now it feels as tight as new.
Thanks so much!

The batteries in my Panasonic ES8003 need replacing but not sure how to remove them, any help please

Love my ES8003 but the batteries last maybe 1 charge.

I called Panasonic after a fruitless search on the web for batteries and they had none.
They did refer me to Turnpike Appliances which has changed its name or been swallowed up by
smallappliances .com.

If you go to the site you can search Panasonic men's shavers and find parts for the ES8003. Unfortunately, batteries aren't listed. You need to CALL (1-800-628-3911) in order for them to special order (meaning you can't return them) the batteries.

Cost of the batteries with shipping is about $42(USD) to my location in California.

To access the batteries, look at the bottom of the razor, there are two very small phillips head screws that attach the base piece of the razor to the body case/internals. The base piece can only attach one way so look at it carefully before unscrewing to make sure you know which way to reattach it. A set of jeweler's screwdrivers is what you need. I actually had better luck removing the phillips head screws with a flat head screw driver...

After removing the screws the base piece should fall away. Lift the razor internals out by grabbing the body case with one hand and, with the other hand holding the foil, lift straight up and out removing the internals from the body case. Note which way the internals came out of the body case so you can put them back in correctly. Gently set the internals down flat on a towel, etc. There are some delicate electrical connections at the bottom you don't want to break. Notice that the two batteries have polarity poles of different lengths. Make sure you note which end is longer, which end is shorter and replace the batteries the same way.

After installing the new batteries, put the razor back together the opposite way you took it apart making sure the rubber seal/plastic trim piece that keeps water out (just below the foil) are seated correctly.

Charge batteries and shave away!

Oster A5 pet clipper-not sure what the part is called, but the piece that pivets back and forth is not moving but the clipper is making noise.

If the power lever (the tab that moves the blade back and forth) is not moving with the blade off, chances are that you have a stripped bakelite gear. Take the two screws out of the cover plate and remove it. Remove the lever. Remove the link (the metal part that the lever connects with). Remove the bakelite gear (the part that the link fits down over). You should then be able to see if the teeth are chewed or worn off to the point that the armature gear will not turn the bakelite gear. If that is the case, replace the gear. Amazon2.gif carries both single speed and 2 speed gears under Oster A5 clipper parts.
Good luck.

The green is a data/power cable that can be used by itself if your USB port can provide enough power to power the drive. If the one port does not provide enough power by itself, you can plug in the blue connector as well to provide additional power for the drive.
