This same thing happened to my charger, and I couldn't fix it. All I could do was find a solution.
Thankfully, Amazon sells this:

It's good and inexpensive, Amazon will have it listed for $1.25 one day and $9.25 another day, so if you can keep an eye on it for a couple days.
The problems with it: It doesn't have an indicator light, and the cord can come out of the power box a lot easier than I'd like it to.
It's not a fix, but it's a cheaper solution to buying another big charger from Apple.f (And I wouldn't recommend buying a second-hand one, I had to return two of' em. They say they're new, but they're clearly not.)

I have a Namco plug and play game system with AV male jacks. Im having a problem with the system AVm jacks and my tv can't pic up the system signal. How can I fix this

I've had the same plug and play and had the same issue so I think I have a good diagnosis for you. Where the wires enter the back of the game, they tend to fray out and this causes a short in the cables causing the audio and video to no longer show up. It can be constant or intermittent. When intermittent, wiggling the cable close to were it enters the game will cause disruptions on the screen (not if on an HD tv) and for the video/audio to cut out or in. It's trash if you for trust yourself to take it apart and work on it but otherwise you can tear it open and check the wiring. Watch out for the screws that hold the shell together because some may be hidden under stickers as well. Make sure that all 4 connections for the wires inside are tight and that no fraying has occurred. If you see fraying then either snip it with scissors or tape it off with electrical tape. Good luck my friend :)

My acer aspire 5738 charge only works when i toggle the charger head and if i move the laptop it stops charging, i bought the laptop second hand 2 months ago. thanks in advance for any advice given :-)

The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Alternatively, the charger wire just next to the charger head might be damaged.
Some wire has frayed apart and is making intermittent contact with itself. This could be fixed by either replacing the charger with a new one, or replacing the charger head & the few centimeters of the wire connecting it to the charger & re-soldering a new charger head instead.

My HD 205 headphones broke last weekend, ive had them for four monthes and when i was listening to music on my ipod touch the headphones sounded like they weren't plugged in properley, i moved the wire...

It sounds like the wires around the jack have become frayed on the inside. If you were to open up the rubber casing around the wires, it would look exactly like that. This is normally caused by improperly wrapping the wires and by not being gentle when plugging them in and removing them. It could be caused by other things, such as electrical damage, but that is much more rare. If you have soldering experience and feel comfortable opening up the rubber casing and working on them, it's not too difficult. You would need to remove the bad portion of the wire and replace it. However, it is just as easy and cost-efficient to have them fixed at an audio repair shop. It should cost no more than $20. Hope this helps!

Powers itself off

• The speaker wires are frayed or sticking out
of the jack, and are touching the back of the
receiver or another set of wires.


• Reinsert the speaker wires, making sure there are no
stray strands of wire and that they are inserted fully.

thank you

Absolutely you can fix this problem.
What you do is goto your local radio shack and they will have the correct connectors and wire that you need.
If you want you can even bring one with you to radio shack and show them what you want to do.
The fix should only take maybe 10 minutes tops they have alot of do it yourself items.

Chances are the ground wire is frayed or partially broken. You could cut the black wire on the bulb socket, crimp a new wire onto the socket side of the cut, and ground that to a bolt in the engine bay. If the ground wire was frayed somewhere, this will likely fix the problem.
