Question about Nokia 3100

Problem with the screen

My phone fell down from the shelf as long as some other heavy things that they probably fell on top on the phone and they damaged the screen. It looks like sort of demagnitized. I cannot read anything from the screen except the very little top part. I need to find a way to restore it so I can save my contacts. I found that they are selling LCD screens for $27 on ebay but I am not sure if I will be able to install it easily. I was wondering if there is another solution. Thank you in advance

Usualy all of your contacts will be saved on the sim card, in a small compartment under the battery that you pull open by lifting a little hinged metal bended piece. On some occasions it will also be saved on the phone memory, but I'm sure that at least most of your contacts will be on the sim. About a 27$ screen - that may be so, but over here you can buy the phone itself for 50 euro (=60 $ more or less), so if you can get it that cheap in your area, it might be worth to save the hassle of ebay and the chance that you won't be able to replace the screen, or that you damaged other parts along with it. Good luck

Heavy duty construction adhesive

Ceramic is particularly difficult to bond to due to the polished surface. The shelf you describe is probably heavy, but you have no dimensions or weight provided. I see these shelves fail frequently when they are only "glued" to the wall. It should have been installed to the wall first with a bracket arrangement, then the wall flashed and tiled around the shelf (presuming you have tile walls).

I would recommend that you use stainless steel brackets fastened into the walls (may require using toggle bolts - be sure to run the bolt through the bracket first!) to support the shelf. Use brackets at each wall, then use silicone sealant over the fastener heads. Use the largest brackets that the shelf will allow, you might be able to just epoxy the shelf on top of the brackets rather than trying to install fasteners into the shelf piece, which might break it.

This vendor has nice stainless steel brackets:

I dropped my stereo at home and fell upside down now all my cd s got stuck i took it apart and all the placement cards fell out how do i fix

Not understanding or picturing what you mean by the term Placement Cards, i am at a bit of a loss here to be of much help. I have forgotten now what the insides of my tape deck looked like, too. Sorry.

My guess is that if you study the structures you will be able to grasp how they go together. Tinker with it and play around trying to get things to fit aback together. Things work together logically, but you do have to study the parts and pieces a bit to begin to see that logic. It may take you a while to get it right, but that only requires a bit of patience and not making yourself wrong emotionally. If you can call from memory how things looked before stuff fell apart, that will help. If you can remember how things fell apart that will help, too.

Have fun with the problem solving... just play. Best of luck.

If you can post a picture and or video of what you have got, that may be of help to me so that i can make suggestions.... or others can.

Crisper drawers freezing

probably defrost problem.

I just broke my Dell's screen. something heavy for a lap top fell in, and the screen just went form the normal view to a lot of colored lines ( I don't know how to explain it well) . . . is it possible to...

1) These Dell's usually come "stock" with newer Sata HD's, where your data is stored. As soon as they "free fall" the heads lock, which should save all your data from problems. The HD won't have been damaged, and it sounds like the only thing that is broken is the LCD- if there are lines all over or even on part of the screen, IT CAN NOT BE FIXED. Regardless of what you hear the LCD will need to be replaced- or use an external monitor. Essentially, the impact/drop/falling item on it broke the internal element OF the LCD itself. Good news it's an easy fix. You can do it yourself or bring it to a shop. Ebay sells common LCD's for this kind of laptop.
2) To get your data off, you'll need to remove the HD and have an external 2.5" SATA hard drive enclosure for it as well as a 2nd computer or access to one (to copy the data to). Turn the laptop upside down, and look for the HD (hard drive) cover -it might have a little icon that looks a bit like a 3d-soda can, very small, engraved into the cover or close to it. You'll need a small philips screwdriver. (If you need help finding it, go to dell's website and DL the manual for the 1420 and look up "replacing the hard drive). Once you have the cover open, lift on the tab there (I think it's black- lift straight up once you've unscrewed anything close to it). Once the HD is out, you can unscrew anything attached to it (and pull that little plastic-and metal comb thing off- that's the right-angle connector -don't loose it, they're really hard to find). Plug in the HD to your 2.5" external case, and plug it into your 2nd computer. Copy the files across from your documents and settings/user name, as well as anything else you might want (again, your HD is probably ok, and a new LCD will get you back in business).

To note: you probably WON'T need a whole new LID, just the SCREEN itself. You CAN take these apart easily, though you will need to remove the power-button cover. The steps to replace the LCD yourself should be a different post, but are quite simple, and there is only about... 15-17 screws and a few cables, and you'll only need a philips screwdriver, a small flat screwdriver and the new LCD. Any dell 14.1" wide-screen LCD will work by the way. I'd look on ebay.

good luck and post if you want to try replacing the LCD yourself.

HP Pavilion dv5003cl won't turn on after small fan falls on it.

If the fan fell directly on top of it then it could have destroyed your lcd display. Power down the laptop completely, plug external monitor into vga port on laptop, power on laptop. If you have video on the monitor then you would likely need to replace the screen. If you send it in to get fixed it will cost a lot of money. You could do it yourself if you are comfortable with that type of thing.

Top shelf that covers the sub zero fan fell off

line it up with the posts on the ceiling of the refrigerator with the hooks down when it is even on both sides push it back about 3/4 of an inch and latch the clips. if you look at the side of the cover you will see the notchs on the sides of the cover. hope this helps.

Stanley knife blades fell down drum and under

Probably the best thing to do in this situation is to empty the washer out, then unplug it and turn the water off at the spigot.
Then invert the washer, leaning it back, so as to reach the blades under the drum.

Colored lines down the right side of monitor.

It seems that the lcd screen was damaged you mentioned something fell on it and damaged the lcd. You would need to replace.
