I have a Seca model 707 waist high digital scale and starting last month it started going 5 lbs heavy for a few weeks than the correct weght now its back to about 5 lbs heavy. is this fixable?


get out the operation manual and look in the index or glossary for the "calibration" routine. it is a failry simple process of recalibration. As these units age the solid state components inside chage a little bit. it needs to be reset, that's all

Try to reset the unit. Use the following steps
- Open the battery compartment on the bottom of the scale. Push the tab on the door and lift the cover.
- Remove the battery from the compartment. Close the battery compartment door.
- Sit the scale right side up on a hard surface floor.
- Step on the scale and stand still on it for five to ten seconds. Step off the scale.
- Turn the scale over and open the battery compartment. Re-insert the battery. Close the battery compartment cover.
- Place the scale right side up on the hard surface floor.
- Press one foot on the scale until the display shows zeroes or dashes. Remove your foot.
- Wait for the scale to shut off by itself. When you step back onto the scale, it will be reset.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

The cd disk ia stuck


Unplug unit from AC wall socket for minute or so to get it reset, replug it and turn it On that might reset CD mechanism and stuck CD come out.
If that does not solve the problem, CD mechanism will be inspected for any gear damaged that causing problem. You may be need tech to fix it.
Thanks.

Tray wont open makes a buzzing sound


usually this is cuased by a mechanical jam of the running gear of the tray, sometimetimes firmly pulling the tray out will fix the problem but sometimes this can break it completely. If it was me I would open the unit and take the mechanism apart to free it but this does rely on some technical ability and noone without electrical knowledge should really open these type of products. the buzzing is generally the motor working hard to push against the stuck tray.

Ryobi AP12 Thickness Planer---rubber feed rollers do not rotate


It is fixable if you are technically competent. All parts are still available online. It could be one of two problems:

1 - The rollers are driven by two gear & chain mechanisms on the height adjuster side of the unit. I did have a drive chain break once.

2 - If it isn't that than the gearbox has cracked / gear stripped under the torque load. This is also fixable, each individual gear and the gearbox housing are still available (10-09), but it requires substaintial teardown.

As you disassemble the unit just be careful once you remove the crossover height adjuster shaft - you don't want to turn one lifter by itself and have the planer higher on one side. It really is a simple teardown, just lots of parts. If you like the planer it is worth it; parts are cheap. If you are like me, you enjoy tearing stuff down to see how it's made and you hate throwing out $200 tools because only one little part broke!

Resetting the scale


You do not reset the scale. It only saves the last recorded weight of the user. So, if you weighed yesterday, it will put your recorded weight in memory. The next time you select your user number and step on the scale, it will compute the difference from your previous record and save your current weight.

Left Deck Door Stuck Shut on Cassette Deck


The cassette mechanism has a large gear that rotates to different positions for the different modes. On time around is a play - stop cycle. It is stuck in one position and won't come around to the stop spot. Need to take the cover off and help it to turn to get the cassette out. Then figure out if something is wrong preventing it from turning or if the wheel driving it is the problem. They are all a little different so this is where your mechanical apptitude comes in.
By the way, you'll figure out right away they don't intend these things to be fixed.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Tape "was" stuck and now it's worse


What may have happened is, that in the process of forced removal, gear timing has been fouled up, assuming the cassette carriage is gear driven. Proper gear positioning is critical, and if it is off by one or more teeth, it won't load the tape properly. Often, there are marks or pointers on the gears which must be lined up, in a particular mode, as specified in manufacturer service literature. If there are gear teeth broken, or cracked gears, then they must be replaced. Servicing in such a case is questionable, as VCRs of the past 10+ years are poorly made, prone to break, disposable. Early units, like back in the '80s, were much higher quality, especially mechanically. Unless this is a high $$ rig, you will probably be better off trashing it, and purchasing something else.
