Here is a list of places that sell parts for Averatec, if they don't list your specific one you can try asking them directly. http://www.laptopking.com/searhbrandresults.asp?brand=averatec http://www.excelcomputerinc.com/html/xlsearchbrandresults.asp?brand=averatec As far as the cost of repair parts go non-authorized repair shops (and users) don't get to determine what a fair price is, the manufacturer does. Size and complexity isn?t the major factor in what determines the cost a repair part is sold at. Lots depends on how many laptops were manufactured, what percentage their experience says they need to stock for their warranty repairs (about a year if nothing goes wrong) and then to the end of life (about two years after that). They calculate the number and add that into the manufacturing run while the laptops are still in production then the go into storage which is really expensive. Keeping inventory is expensive; it not only ties up their money in direct manufacturing costs, stocking is incredibly expensive as well. So as you can see the less they have to keep the better they are so they don?t really want to sell parts to anyone. There are always exceptions, especially with popular laptop lines like the ThinkPad and Dell. As far as Ebay goes sometimes the prices are out of line but most of the time they are considerably cheaper than what the going rate is, just have to know the market for that particular item. I didn?t stay up late to write this rambling explanation (it?s really late) to try to antagonize you so please don?t take offense. Unfortunitly I suspect someone will but never the less I find that it?s good for people to understand why a repair part is so expensive at times. It makes them a better consumer and much more careful about what they buy. Sometimes what seems like a good deal can wind up being more expensive in the long run

You can try searching for:

you may be able to find them for sale on sites like ebay, or even some online sewing machine parts company may have what you need.

Have an old Pfaff 1222 with the take-up lever broken. Do you have a replacement part.


Try search for:

Make Model parts

however, with the age of your machine, you may be luckier finding parts from a donor machine, perhaps on eBay or similar sites.

I am trying to find the logic/video board for my Sansui HDlcd3200a any Ideas?


I am an electronics tech so i know that finding spare parts for a tv can be very difficult. Your best bet is to try to purchase the board from Sansui. If Sansui cannot help you ebay is a great place to find spare parts.

I need an air intake hose between throttle body and air flow meter. Do you know where I might be able to find one?


Besides the Dealer, you should have luck with online sites for Salvage parts. Just look first in your phonebook for local Salvage or Used Auto parts. If the local places do not have it, there should be advertisement for Internet services at the Salvage place.

Second, do a websearch for Internet Auto parts. They use FedEx, UPS, and Postal right to your door, This part should be pretty light so I don't think the freight will cost much.

I have used the Internet for used boat parts, car transmissions (was shipped by Greyhound) and wiring harnesses. You can find some parts on Ebay and Craigslist, both new and used.

Hi guys,

If you need a new ribbon cable, you might be able to find a place that specializes in used/refurbed Macs.

Another option is finding parts or parts-machines on eBay. I once bought a TiBook 400MHz with a bad motherboard, because I wanted spare parts (mostly a display) for my 500MHz TiBook - $200 for the parts machine, vs. $500+ for buying a new display elsewhere.

Those ribbon cables are terribly delicate - - wires look like sewing threads, and if they break, you're done - - you're not soldering _those_ back together.

Good luck - - if I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using FixYa.com,

Jon

Need Help Finding Parts!


Concerning the black plastic piece, gluing it may be your best bet since specialty parts like that are not usually available for these monitors. I would NOT recommend that you try to find Elite brand capacitors. They seem to be the cause of the failure, after all! I always replace ALL of the non-polarized electrolytic capacitors in these units with new 105-degree, good quality replacements. At the very very least, you should replace any that are bulging or leaking. While any good brand is fine, I get them from Tritronics. Order them by value and voltage (make sure the voltage you choose is at or a bit higher than the old cap). Visit http://www.wehaveparts.com then click on "Click Here to Shop Our Parts & Accessories Catalog" then on the next page scroll down to "Capacitors" and click on "Standard Electrolytic Caps".
