Question about Computers & Internet

My Shop foreman owns the revo milling system model 540b however it is no longer under warranty. He needs to replace a part, one of the belts in the machine has been stretched beyond repair, he is quite capable of repairing it if is there a schematic. I would also like one for the simple reason that he has been able to reorder parts in the past as long as the SKU number for the part was visible. Can you point me in the right direction?

    As I stated the foreman owns the machine. His english and his understanding of the procedural conduct regarding copyrighted information is limited. Apparently Gemvison wants a ridiculous amount of money to handle the problems with upkeep that the machine presents. You lobbed a 1st level solution at me and I dont appreciate you charging me to do a google search and restate the obvious. If the timing belt in your car breaks and you are not under warranty you dont sign up for training at the dealership. If you know anything about car engines you buy a replacement belt and install it yourself. I make that comparison because Gemvision may source the machines manufacture and train students to use their proprietary software but they do not publicly claim to train the mechanics who manufacture the individual parts used in the machine. Nor do they manufacture the nuts and bolts. My employee has taken the training courses. They simply teach basic use and basic upkeep for the various components. He has an elevated understanding of the mechanics. If you are capable and you are shrewd enough to diagnose the broken component you find out where to source your materials and replace it yourself. We cant have the machine out of play any longer than the guy who has to replace his own timing belt. Thanks but your answer doesnt satisfy, not only do I know who to ask at Gemvision, but I could have found that using google a free search engine maybe you are familiar. To put it simply, If you cant come up with something other than to send me to the "dealership" then please refund my money....

    For real, is it a "gear belt"? I bet its available at many local stores as well as online. Let me guess is there sometimes a number printed on it to determine the difference between lengths and SKU? Come on!!!

  • kerps May 31, 2011

    Um... No I can't ....if you can please get one and provide me
    With it.... Thanks for confirming before commenting.

  • kerps Jun 02, 2011

    if anyone knows the brand, size, SKU, length and width etc.. of the belts used in the axis calibration of the machine that might do the trick... As I am seeing through the noble efforts of the experts the Schematic is as legendary as unobtanium. Clearly this is protected for a good reason, but my goal was never to start building the machine only to repair it and stay in business. Unfortunately, the current options through gemvision will not allow for that, either I will be out of work for lack of hardware or broke for lack of funds.

  • kerps Jun 02, 2011

    Thank you for examining my problem and I am sorry for rejecting your answer. I guess I am a little upset and I cant let a few of your comments go unanswered. While I really do appreciate the help you have provided, the statements you have made come off a little abrasive. This is a paid answer site. I paid, so as far as the accusation you made about getting something for free, I have to assume you are trying to shame me for not accepting the answer. The website you sent me to is the canadian distribution site for gemvision. Aside from spelling the word jewelry slightly different how could this site offer me anything that the US site doesn't. Wouldn't they lose their exclusive distributorship if they gave out proprietary information. I reached out to fixya for some expert experience for insight where I hadn't thought to look. The deal is if you dont like the answer you ask for someone else qualified in this field to review your problem. I thought this think tank mentality would perhaps yield more than a few hyperlinks and some eloquent deflections of my intent. I am looking for an acceptable answer to a realistic question and I feel I am in my right to reject anything less. Not for free but for the $12 I paid. Your friend is right not to publish or offer out proprietary information but if he had I probably would have found it and fixya would be out my $12. As far as your implied ethical stance, it is not my intention to break any laws, I was hoping to find someone who would draw from their experience or a that of a collegues, if you do not have experience, you are not an expert.
    I need to replace a belt on a machine. I do not need instructions or procedural knowledge I need a SKU or a manufacturer/mechanic familiar enough with the materials to answer me. The answer will be a what or a who. Not a how to, or a where online answer. Kindly provide that or pass on it...

Contact Gemvision technical support and ask whether the instruction manual contains complete parts information, including diagrams. You can also ask about the belt at the same time. The paper instruction manual is $39.95.

Request a schematic from the manufacturer.And a maint repair manual.
Give them the model and serial number and they will send you your documents on your machine.

If you bought it used they will still send you what you want.

    Sorry if you can't find a no work answer for your problem. That is, from what I read and got from my jewelry making friends, a specialized machine. I didn't give you the link to purchase a contract with that company, they have the service manual on the machine that will give you the instructions on how to fix your problem. Had I seen a post indicating, as you said, your friend had limited understanding of written English I would not have responded. You appear to want something for free and because of the specialized nature of that machine it does not exist. I have a friend that has the manual but he will not allow anyone to scan it and make it available for free. He is right in not doing this. The only company available with the manual you want to do the work you have described is at the link I provided. If there was a free link I would have provided it. Good luck.

  • James Young Jun 03, 2011

    Actually you paid the Fixya site. I have no problem at all with you not wanting to pay me any fee because you don't feel the solution I provided solves the problem acceptably. That is the strength of this site. After seeing your problem being up for so long I contacted some friends that do this work and found one that has this machine. He got the manual to do the repair you specified from the link I provided. Yes, it cost him right at $128 us dollars from them but, as he said, that is the price of doing business. That is how I look at this and providing the services I can. Some are not going to be happy with what is said and that is the price of doing business.

    As far as my second post in response, it was based solely on your post initially and the tone was essentially in response to:

    "You lobbed a 1st level solution at me and I dont appreciate you charging me to do a google search and restate the obvious. If the timing belt in your car breaks and you are not under warranty "

    From your post. You mentioned how my last response came across abrasive, so does this. All we can do is try to help, if the answer doesn't fix the problem or suit your needs I expect that you will ask for other help and I don't want any money for answers I give that don't solve the problem. In many cases I have told a requester to mark the post as still unsolved to get help from someone else for that very reason. I am sorry my solution doesn't seem to help you. The training CD available on that site is supposed to have a section on how to change the belts according to the email I received from them. I truly hope you find someone that can answer this question but being that is a specialized piece of equipment with a limited field of users I feel your chance of finding one here, even with all our expertise may be less than stellar. I do hope someone can assist you but I haven't seen a category badge for that type of equipment and we really don't get a lot of questions about it.

What you probably want is a "gearbelt". These are available from many sources and the object is to find one with correct length, width and pitch. Some of them are marked with numbers that define the exact part. Search Google for "gearbelt" and a bunch of sources come up. Grainger sells some for example. They are industry standards and are also use in a lot of larger computer peripherals. It is a good idea to find ALTERNATE sourcces as many companies go out of business and no longer supply parts. OFTEN it is less expensive to get parts from other sources as well.

  • Fred Yearian May 29, 2011

    Yes, they are called gear belts. They are made of rubber or some are a plastic. They are used in many computer peripherals and macine tools. They have teeth on the back and use special pulleys with teeth in them. MOST of the computer printers have a very small one in them to move the carriage. Many of the belts are made by GATES rubber. You should be able to find an online catalog. Many will have a number on them if it hasn't worn off that will totally identify the belt. These belts are used both where sprockets or shafts must be kept in sync, and yes, some are even used as timing belts in auto engines. For the NC machines they commonly have one for the carriages that has a clamp and the stepper motors drive a sprocket that moves the carriage via the belt. In this use, the belts do stretch over time beyond what the tensioners can take up. Half the battle finding replacements is to know what the item is called. Note that there are some that are plastic that are made like a ladder, but those are not strong enough for use in these NC machines. Have the foreman look for any marking numbers on the belt or measure the width, approximate total length and the number of teeth per inch and let me know and I will search the catalogs for a replacement. Believe me, the original manufacture of that machine does NOT make the belt... they are an 0ff-the-shelf item.

  • Fred Yearian May 31, 2011

    Numbers you find on the belt will NOT be a SKU number, but a catalog number. Stock Keeping Unit identifiers are usually tied to a single companies inventory system instead of a catalog number.

Schematics are quite difficult to get on such items as the one you have. Although the producers of your product gemvision organise training programs for people who need to have these parts worked on. The schematics would be issued there as the item seems to be copyrighted by the company due to this the schematics are illegal to be put online for public consumption. here are some links to help you register your foreman for a training session

I just purchased a eepc1001p and it wont boot up its giving a error message saying thatoleaut32dl


Hello.

If you purchased this computer new and it has a warranty, contact your supplier to return it. They should replace it when so new.

If you just purchased the computer from another person who owned this computer and it is no longer under warranty, return to that person, if possible.

If no longer under warranty and for whatever reason, you cannot return this computer and you need to try and fix, try System Restore. Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date several months back.

Hope this helps.

3 of my numbers no longer work. How do I fix this?


First you need to confirm if you are still under warranty and call the Lenovo Consumer Support Hotline at 1-877-453-6686 and ask for the warranty information of your system. If you are lucky and your machine is under warranty then Lenovo will service your machine free of charge. You can also check the warranty of your machine at http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/en/warranty/Warranty.html and enter your serial number.


If you are aware that you are currently out of warranty then there is two option for you:
First, You can have Lenovo repair the keyboard and with that, there will be service charge for replacement.

Second, If you are comfortable on replacing the keyboard on your own, You can contact Lenovo and purchase a keyboard for your Lenovo Y510 on the same number. They will charge you for less than $60 overall.

Marantz CDR500 has record bay which no longer opens. I was told some time back that this is not repairable and that Phillips, who made the drive, no longer makes them so it is essentially a total loss. ...


This is a tricky one, because from the view of an authorized Marantz servicer, the replacement "part" is probably the entire drive which may no longer be available. It is possible that the true problem is that the main drive belt is slipping. In that case, replacing the belt will fix the problem. As long as the unit is not under warranty, any service shop should be able to attempt a repair. They can not make it worse and perhaps can resolve it cheaply.
