    I have the same problem....Plastic U Joint broken...can't find any part to repair. Oh dear....may try to improvise with some plastic tubing cut to length maybe. Anybody out there know where to get this parrt without buying the whole armature shaft? The Dremel parts list doesn't show this plastic part as being available separately.

I use heat shrink and found one that was larger and cut it down to less than an inch. I heated it with a lighter enough to fit the same size over it. and then heated that one enough to slip inside. I did one more so I ended up with 3 of the same heat shrink tubing (pink) and covered over both of the shafts and heated the whole thing so they all sealed and made a connecting shaft. In a pinch it worked well and never had a problem. there is a picture attached.

My Dremel is about twenty years old (model 285-3) and the plastic connecting piece crumbled with age. I called the Dremel company and gave them the part number from my parts list. The part is called a flex chuck, however I do not have the new part number. The person answering the phone knew what I needed and for about a dollar plus $2.00 shipping, I should be able to repair the Dremel like new.

I had the same problem. It looked like the original part was surgical tubing. I used a 1 inch long piece of 1/4 inch ID TYGON tube 1/16 wall. Works great so far..

Washing machine gets through spin cycle then stops and says 'no drain'


Hi,
If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:


  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:


  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.

  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

Tungsten E: difficulty starting and turning off


PalmOne had a manufacturing issue in the Tungsten E and E2 PDA versions.

Bottom line is the On/Off switch is not properly soldered (enough soldering amount) so is easy that breaks the soldering joint of the switch to the main board.

The repair requires to open the PDA, remove very carefully the mainboard, and put straight (vertical) and re-solder the switch again.

It is needed a minimum of tools for it (soldering iron, torx screwdriver, wire soldering, plastic pry tool), and some skills and experience in fixing electronics.

Also, you can get with a radio or TV repair techniocian, and ask specifically to resolder such On/Off switch.

Best regards,

Htc not turn on, red light on


Hi,
Remove the battery from the mobile, press the power button, for 30 seconds.
Re attach the charger , switch on the phone. If it turns on switch it off again and reinsert the battery and check.
If none of the above steps work, you would have to take it in for repairs as there could be a problem with the power supply inside the phone , that would require special tools to open

Thanks
