Screw in the headphone socket

There is a screw lodged in the headphone hole (bottom right) of my daughter's iPod. I think one of her friend's may have inserted it there. How do I get it out? Thanks.

    It is somewhat loose in the hole. It probably needs a thin forceps that I can use to grab the screw; however, I do not have one. I will try a watch repair store.

To be honest i would see how well its jammed in there. if you cant extract it by hand then use a screw driver and undo it because either way its gonna be damaged.....only problem is you might not be able to put a headphone jack in the hole because the screw may of opened it up too much.

My idle cable came lose how do i fix it

You will find the Idle cable screw hole in the middle of the carbs between two and three, It screws directly in between the two at the bottom, You can quite clearly see the screw hole, You have to first take off the petrol tank, then the Air filter housing, It is best to take off the carbs as well for easier access to the Idle worm drive screw hole though, There are only four screws holding the carbs on via four thin duabley type clips, You will need a long X-head or a Phillips for this, You will need an 7 or 8mm socket and a 10mm socket for the tank and an 8mm socket for the Air filter housing, I hope this helps, :)

My daughter's Butterscotch Pony is in great shape, except for a loud gear-grinding noise that we have traced (and watched with a flashlight) that appears to come from a large white plastic gear that is...

Yes, that is the fault in question: that plastic cog was supposed to move the head and it's making that noise because it's slipping, because the gear shaft is not properly aligned with the motor - it's how the head mechanism was designed: badly and with low quality parts.
No, this is not automatically fixed by Hasbro with a head replacement - this happens only when the cog breaks due to the abnormal stress that's put on it, not your case. All you can do is to slightly grease the mechanism and refit the head as best as you can.

When I plug my headphones into my iPod, there is no sound, unless I jiggle the cord around and do not plug them all the way in. They worked fine at the beginning, but do not work now.

I'm not certain it's not the I-Pod socket or the headphone jack that is playing up? If you can get another pair of headphones (a friends etc) and put them in the socket of the I-Pod, to test it that should clear it up. For if they don't work you know it's the I-Pod socket that's faulty.
If it's the Bose jack that's gone, you better see my tip on dodgy cable/plugs on headphones. You should be able to replace it with the 3.5mm type shown, but I think you can get the thinner type jacks.

My iPod only plays through the left headphone, not the right. How can I fix it? Thank you.

This is a common problem, the "Bulb: at the bottom of the Jack, is not making contact with the "Fingers" inside the socket. Either replace the socket, or try another sort of headphone with a bigger "Bulb". Also check, it isn't a broken wire just as it enters said Plug.

My daughter has broken the tail off. Can we

Had the same problem and the fix is easy. Hopefully, the tail snapped off at the base of the plastic plate on the tail. If so, go to a hardware store and buy 1 ft. of plastic tubing with 1/4" inner diameter and 3/8" outer. Cut off a piece about 1 1/2". Now, look at the base of the tail and you should see a small screw that holds in what remains of the stub that broke. Unscrew the screw and remove what is left of the stub. KEEP THE SCREW. Now drill a small hole thru the plastic tube about 1/8" from the end. This will later be inserted into the tail and the screw will go through the hole. Next, take a hair dryer and heat the undrilled end of the tube to soften it and push it on to what is left of the broken stub inside the pony. It will be a tight fit which is what you want. The end of the tube with the hole should be just visible. Now slide the tail over the end of the tube and insert the screw. I just did it today and it works good as new! If the tail is too far away from the body of the pony, carefully remove the tube and shorten it. Since you bought a 1 ft. tube, you can have several trys to get it right! Total cost for the tube was 21 cents. Good luck! Kip V. Tryon, NC

When I put my earbuds into my ipod touch only one side works

For the iPod nano you can replace the headphone jack your self for under thirty dollars. Even cheaper if you get the basic tool kit for it. :)

Step 1 Gather the needed tools. Copy an paste the URL below in your Browser window to view the needed items and purchase them if you wish. :)

Step 2 You need to remove the bottom bezel 1st. Take a flat head or safe open case tool and slide it in the crack of the bottom. Be careful not to pry to hard or you will break the bezel where the dock port hole is. This bottom piece is held on with mild adhesive.

Step 3 Once the bottom panel is removed, take your + driver and remove the 2 visible screws.

Step 4 There is one other screw that is hidden under the headphone jack. You will not be able to remove the bottom metal dock bezel until this hidden screw is removed. Take the flathead and pull the headphone jack out very slowly & carefully.
Once you have slid the new headphone jack into place just go backwards to reassemble.

The actual part is only one dollar! :) Here is the URL to view the part and decide if you wish to go that route instead of apples so called great rout of Charging a lot of money for something so small and simple.

ON the web page you can also get the free guide to repairing your iPod touchl. Please let me know if any of this information is unsatisfactory or if you have any difficulties. And also remember to rate our experts ;)

Also remove the battery and any other removeable plates below the notebook to check for additional screws. Check if there are any rubberized "feet" or plugs covering access to still more screws. Keep screws and their locations organized in case they are different length.

Spark Plugs

first open the hood and if you look at the engine theres is a black cover, there are two nuts on the bottom and you need a size 10mm socket if im not mistaken, take those off and on the top corner of the black cover there are two little plastic things that you just pop up with a flat screw driver. once all that is taken off pull the black cover up and put it aside. now you can see the 4 ignition coils because it dosent have spark plug wires. to get to the sparkplugs you need to take out the ignition coil. you need to remove the screw it is a 10mm socket i think and once you remove the screw disconect what ever its conected to and just give it a twist and pull it up and if you peak in the hole the spark plug will be right there.

Headphones not playing in iPod

This is either cause by a damaged headphone socket in the iPod or a loose connection. The only way to solve it will involve opening the iPod case and inspecting the daughter board that the headphone socket is on.
