SOURCE: Kensington key board

Normal 0 Assuming that you have good batteries installed, turn the Keyboard over and locate the small reset/connect button on the back of the keyboard and press it. Then try to see if it is working. If not try pressing the button on the receiver and then on the keyboard. Try typing, should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I reattach handle on freezer door pull that has come unscrewed on French Samsung refrig

Many times the handle is slid on from one side or the other onto the screws. Try sliding the handle off by gently putting a screwdriver or putty knofe under the handle on the side that is still attached and pushing the handle sideways. This should remove the handle so you can remove the mounting screw and get it back on the door. then you can slide the door handle back on after getting the screw attached on the door again.

How to remove the chuck from a mastercraft 12 v drill

You have to remove a screw, anchor the handle down, and then unscrew the chuck itself. You do this with a vise, and a big allen wrench for leverage.

First, the rReverse threaded screw inside the chuck itself. Open the chuck all the way and you should see it down at the bottom of the whole. It'll have threadlocker on it probably, so it might be a little tight, but you need to remove that screw.

After that, switch the drive to low gear (not high speed) and put the handle of the drill tightly into a bench vise. Careful not to crush the handle. Get the biggest allen wrench (key) that you can find that will fit into the chuck, and tighten the chuck around the wrench. Once that's in, take a hammer and smack the end of the wrench - that will unstick the chuck and get it turning (you'll want to do this so that when you hit the wrench, the chuck turns counterclockwise). Spin the chuck the rest of the way by hand and it will come out.

How to reattach brake cables on my mountain bike

Hi chermy637

You need to unscrew and loosen the brake pads with an Allen Key until you have enough slack in the cables to reach tboth he pads and brake levers easily. Clutch one brake lever (as you do when braking) to maximum, hook the grommet at the end of the cable into the hole slightly larger than the grommet, then slide it back along the groove leading from the hole so the cable is anchored in the pivot end of the lever, carefully threading it through to the static rest that the lever rests against when released.

Extend the cable, now anchored at the brake lever at the end, down towards the brake pad on the same side of the bike. Feed the grommet of the brake pad end of the cable through the hole in the retaining arm holding the brake pad.

Holding the grommet to stop it springing back through the hole with your subordinate hand, use your principal hand to take the Allen Key and tighten the retaining arm of the brake pad adjusting the orientation of the brake pad and the rim of the wheel as you go along. Just before the gripping point, pull the cable down to take up any slack, pulling any extra length down through the hole with your subordinate hand as you tighten with the Allen Key.

When the cable is held fast at the brake pad end and the brake pads are well aligned with the wheel rim, test for the correct tension on the brake lever and adjust the tension of the cable accordingly.

Repeat the process on the other side of the bike.

I hope this helps.

How do I remove the chuck from a dewalt drill model dw100

I just had the same question and could not find any info except sent it to Dewalt or pay for a $70 tool???

A normal chuck you would unscrew the left handed lock screw down the end of the chuck. The DW100 doesnt have one.

Wrap a cloth around it and tighten in vise. Chuck a big allen key in it...5/8 or so...tighten that down. It should spin freely in the drill which is locked in the vise. move the allen to 3 or 9 o clock horizontal. get your fingers out of the way. Hit the allen with a a direction that is "lefty loosey" may have to do it a couple of times but eventually the threads will break loose and the chuck will unscrew. CHuck is held on by friction only. Replace the chuck in the same but opposite manner. Hitting the allen so that it tightens things up.

The key is that the gearbox provides enough backward resistance when the allen is hit firmly to allow the chuck to unscrew itself...

I need to change the chuck assembly. i have removed the screw from the center,but i am not able to remove the chuck. any suggestions on removing it without damaging the drill will be greatly appreciated.

Get a large 90-degree allen wrench. It's best to use the largest allen key the drill can accommodate, at least 3/8" to 1/2". Put the short end of the allen key in the chuck and, with the long end of the allen key pointing straight up, completely tighten the chuck.

Firmly holding the drill on the edge of a table, you're going to have to hit that allen wrench with a hammer, hard. Use the flat side of a hammer to hit the allen wrench so that the blow will spin the chuck counter-clockwise. Sometimes it can take a real hard swing, so swinging through smoothly helps.

How do I remove a keyless chuck from my Sears drill.

The chuck is screwed on with a normal thread, the screw in the centre (already removed) is left hand thread. Holding the drill with the open end of the chuck facing you, it should unscrew anti clockwise. It might take an impact to start it off. I normally put the gearbox to slow, set the cluth to drill and then holding the drill firmly, hit the allen key against the edge of my workbench. Bring the drill down like a hammer blow so the allen key hits the bench (which should be on your left). I find this more effective than holding the drill on the bench and hititng the allen key with a hammer as it allows for less drill movement at the point of impact.
