Question about Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

My external has stopped working- it also has an odd sensation when I pick it up rather like two identical magnet ends being held together. I only bough it 4 months ago and want to get the data from it!

When was your Kirby made? If you have an older Kirby, inside where the motor lies is a single or double magnet with a spring coil attached to it. Within that coil is a filament wire held together with a shiny disk at other end. This filament does go bad from time to time and needs to be replaced. This usually is not a do it yourself job. If you can find the proper filament, you might but usually there are several types and sizes, let your local distributor change it for you.

Out of 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19 pick up any 5 nos. to make a total of 50.


Several ways to do this. 1, 5, 13, 15 17 is one of them.

(1 x 5) + 13 + 15 + 17

Workings:

(1 x 5) = 5

5 + 13 + 15 + 17 = 50.

- You cannot add five odd numbers together to make 50. Five odd numbers added together will always be an odd number.
- You cannot add four odd and take an odd number away as this will also total an odd number.

Therefore 2 of the numbers must be multiplied as this enables you to effectively add four odd numbers together to total an even number.

Hope this helps. Got any more?

The sensor does not pick up the signal from the magnet.


TRY AND GET THE SENSOR AND MAGNET CLOSER TOGETHER.AND MAKE SURE THE MAGNET PASSES THE CENTRE OF THE SENSOR.MINE PASSES WITH A 3 TO 4MM GAP BETWEEN THEM

On the front end of the 95 eclipse I just bought there are rods not attached and I need to know which ones on a diagram and how to put them back together?


Compare the right side to the left side of the car. They should be almost identical. If it is not obvious to you just from looking under it, I suggest you pick up a haynes manual from autozone. They sell for around $20-25.

Our tv is magnitized by our surround sound base speaker what can we do.


Hello. Here are the steps:
1.put your hands in the form like you would if you are about rub your hands together for warmth
2.Put the magnet between both hands at the palm areas
3.rub your hands together and turn the magnet so that the north and south ends magnetize the TV simultaneously
4.make sure you know where the north and south ends are located on the magnet
5.Hint - The Constant switching between the north and south polarizations causes the magnet to equalize the magnetized areas on the TV returning it to it's original color!

External tank not filling


I recently encountered the same issue. First off, with the external tank installed is there an icon on the display panel indicating the tank is installed?

No? Then the two sensors are not picking up the magnets in the the "arms" on the back of the tank. It's a poor design for sure, on my unit the tank does not sit flush enough to the back of the AC, if I held the tank firmly to the back the icon would come on. I just used a bit of cardboard at the bottom of the support tray to press the tank firmly to the back of the AC.

Theory is as the external tank fills up, water will run into the "arms" and raise the magnets tripping the switch which tells the unit it needs emptying. But the magnets in the arms are not strong enough if they are not close enough to the sensors. So my cardboard solution lasted only one tank.

I ended up getting some flat neodymium magnets (that I scavenged out of a hard drive), and taped to the sensor that had the gap. I wouldn't recommend doing this to both sensors since it would eventually overfill, only one sensor needs to "trip" for the compressor to turn off.

If you answered yes to the first question (the bucket icon is there), then it's most likely the pump not working on the internal reservoir, or something related to that. Can't help you there...

I can only give a general guide.
Usually, watch bands can be shortened by removing links. These links are commonly held together by small pins. These need to be removed with a very fine punch. Looking at the ends of the pins, one end commonly appears "split", the other end may look quite smooth. The pin needs to be driven out from the "split" end. 2 will need to be removed to remove 1 link, then 1 replaced to rejoin.
Links should be removed equally, so gar as possible, from each side of the band. Your choice which side if 1 only is to be removed.
Sometimes the ending links are different to the others. It is only the ones that are identical that can be removed.
