    I've checked the batteries and they're in correctly. Aside from thinking about taking it apart I cant figure out why the auto function wont work. Any suggestions out there please?

    Google Black and Decker auto tape measure, their is lots of info there

    I took your advice and googled B&D. A mention was made in regard to the switch button on the bottom which they say is a way to retract the tape measure if the batteries are too low. No one however mentioned how to switch it back to auto. Funny thing is... I never knew about this feature until I found it the other day and of course had to try it... lol Now I'm wishing I never found it at all.

    It should only work as long as you hold it back. It just moves the motor roller back out of the way momentarily to let the spring bring the tape back in. When you let go, the roller goes back into position and the tape returns to normal "auto" operation.

Check I think it to hold the blade out to save a measurement.

    Yes, I understand that. My problem is that I cant get it to work automatically when pushed out and in. Would you know how I can do this?

    Is the battery in the correct direction?

  • sfm153 Jun 30, 2016

    I think it's the release to let the tape come back in under spring power rather than by battery power. I have an older ATM100 and that's how it works on that one.

I was given a Black and Decker 10 Band Saw ser. number 279050, made in 1992 I am looking for a manual for this saw also I need a new belt for this item.

Try a google search, or e-bay, r something like that. Amazon?
The belt migh be available at any auto parts store, if you determine the length and width by measuring with a tape measure.
God bless your efforts.

How to rewind a tape measure

You'll need to take the tape casing apart but need special security torx bits to do that (a T-8 and T-9). Once apart (careful, two small springs inside) you can take the tape spool apart and rewind the tape to re-establish tension. Then re-assemble!

How do you put a new blade into a Black & Decker JS4000 Type 1 jigsaw

There is a black plastic switch where the blade is slid into the jigsaw. The black plastic switch can be seen and accessed from the front of the jigsaw through the clear plastic sight guide...You pull the black switch toward the bottom of the jigsaw and it opens the space for the blade to slide into, when you release the switch it will close the space and lock the blade into place.

Hope this helps.

In what order do the batteries go in on the Black & Decker ATM100? which go in top down? and which go in bottom up?

Take a look at the inside of the Battery cover. You will see a (-) and (+). Look at your unit from the bottom with batter case away from you. Insert batteries with Neg up, Pos up, Neg up, then Pos up.

Hope this helps

Hello, I want to calibrate a Marksman Distance Measure, but I dont know how I have to. Please, help me. thanks in advance

If you take a tape measure and step from the wall at exactly 10 feet, you will be able to turn the calibration knob to the same exact distance. All other distances from that point on will be precise. Thank you, Dana

What is the diamonds represent at the 19.2" on a tape measure

Sorry justaskjoe, but the black diamonds are every 19.2''. 16'' centers are represented by a red rectangle. The black diamonds allow you to save one joist or stud every 8'. If you use the black diamonds, you will have 5 equally spaced studs every 8' instead of 6 when using the red rectangles. However, I'm not sure how efficient this is considering any sheets I've seen are marked for 16'' or 24'' centers, so although you could save money by purchasing less joists, you would spend a lot of time marking your boards every 19.2''.

Cassette jam

I had this problem, and here is how it was resolved.

My cassette would not pop out when I opened the door with the camera turned on. When I turned off the camera and opened the door, it slid out much further, but still failed to pop open so that I could remove the tape. Then it slid back in.

Remove the battery, and have the camera off, but make sure the power cord is connected. Open the door until the tape slides out further than at other times. (Note: It intermittently slides out further when the camera is off. Sometimes it will not slide out any further than when it is on.) When the tape is slid out as far as it will go, quickly remove the power cord. The tape will stay in the slid-out position. Now, at the bottom side of the tape door there is a curved channel for a small pin to slide in. This channel has a 90% curve at the bottom of the channel to catch the pin, which holds the door closed. Push that pin back a little (toward the lense) to get it to go around that 90% curve, and the door will pop open so you can remove your tape. The ribbon of your tape will be jammed in the camera a little, so you will have to be careful and move the ribbon around a little until you can get it out freely.

This worked for me twice. I did not try putting a tape in again.

I hope this helps.

Cassette Jam

The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
