Has anyone a repair manual for these? I need to sort the order of components after replacing damaged pins inside the telescopic lense assembly. Some Pics would be helpful. Anyone know where I could download a manual from?
Thanks Colin Rose

If you are asking about the pull cord and when you pull it the engine does not turn and the cord pulls super easy it generally means that the dogs inside the cove assembly are not engaging. This may be caused by a broken spring or dog inside the pull cord assembly. You would need to carefully remove the assembly cover from the engine and pull the cord to see if the dogs are protruding from the assembly if not you would need to repair or replace the parts as needed if so then you would have to check if the will still extend under strain, if not then repair if they still protrude under strain you would have to examine the engine where the unit was removed and look for damage or wear and replace parts accordingly. If you are in fact asking about the front or snow auger on the snow blower itself then the most likely answer would be that you have sheared a pin which holds the auger to the shaft that rotates it. The shear pins (as they are called) are designed with softer metal to break if you hit a large piece of ice, stick or rock that may damage more important and expensive parts of the blower if they stayed intact during the incident. To fix this merely find the hole in the auger along the shaft that is no longer pinned (the auger should spin freely) spin it to line up with the hole n the shaft (which may still have a broken piece of the shear pin in it) drive out any remaining pin with a punch and replace with the appropriate pin for your machine. If the pins are intact you may have a bad belt, pulley, or tensioner and you would have to move further into the repair process.
You seem to know what you're doing, but make sure the diode only works one way. If it doesn't work at all, then it will need to be replaced, if it works both ways, it could have damaged other components.
This laptop is quite old and personally I wouldn't have bothered with it, since as you know, these laptops are terrible for these sorts of problems!
There is no taking the lense apart. It is a sealed unit. If the lense needs cleaning on the inside it is because the headlamp assembly has been damaged and needs to be replaced. If it just has the bad yellowing on the outside, most auto parts stores have headlamp cleaning kits available.
AutoZone lists your headlamp assemblies at $299.99
It might be a good idea to check with a salvage yard first. You may find a good used one for less than half the price.
fronts: remove tire and wheel, there are 2 guide hold down pins ( screws ) on backside of caliper that remove with a Hexhead or torx bit. You may be better off renting the driver for this available from most parts stores for deposit only. Disc pads will then be able to pop loss with a pry of some sort. replace in reverse order.
Backs are pretty much the same if Disc , if drums remove wheel and tire assembly which exposes the drum. There may be clips on a stud or 2 , pry off. Tap the outside of drum around the edge but not so close as to damage edge, this should free any rust and drum should then be able to pull off. Remember exact order yo remove parts and springs on rears as they will only work one way,,In order.. You will need a few special tools to ease job. Spring retainer pliers to remove retaining cups on springs that hold down brake linings, vise grips do work with some luck. small screw driver to adjust play on backside of brake housing plate. Get yourself a repair manual also. Available from most libiarys for take out.
If your unit has some time on it it probably has a dirty lense on the laser assembly. This isn't difficult to clean but you must exercise care not to damage any components of the laser assembly. Unplug the unit. Remove the top cover. If the disc drive has a cover, remove it. You should see the lense, looks like a fish eye, looking up at you. The lense is monted on a set of springs and will move around as you clean it. This is normal but do not apply anymore pressure than necessary. The alcohol will do the work loosening the dirt. Using 200 proof grain alcohol, available from any electronic parts supplier (www.mcmelectronic.com) and commercial grade, lint free, cotton swabs, also available at MCM, moisten swab and gently touch the lense rotating the swab head. Use a dry swab after the wet one. Blow dry the assembly with canned air, also available at MCM. Reassemble unit and you should have a working player. If you still are not reading discs you could have a defective or weak laser assembly. This would have to be replaced with a new unit. I hope this has helped you. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
Not really, zoom lenses are pretty fragile and will permanently be damaged when they get a shock. Most probably the guide rails/pins are damaged inside, and it will need luck and patience to glue them in place (and most of the times glue isn't strong enough to keep them together).
Better sell it for parts on ebay and get yourself a new one (most of the times broken fetch half price of used ones). People need different parts (i.e., the mount, motors, aperture assembly), and it is environmentally great to recycle goods for reuse by other repairers...
You will have to get a complete clasp assembly, which will have to be ordered from the factory that makes that model. If the clasp assembly is not available, A jeweler might have that part or be able to repair it for you.
There are two components to a camera lense. One adjusts the final lense distance from the CCD imaging chip the other adjusts the distance between the lenses in the assembly (which zooms the image in and out). It sounds like something inside the lense came loose and when you zoom the lense the focal lense is moving with the rest. The lense will probably have to be replaced if it cannot be taken apart. Odds are something is broken inside anyway. This could be something you might be capable of, I have no way of knowing. If you do not think you are up to the task, have a reputable repair shop do it. Cost should not be excessive. I would think less than $100 US plus the cost of the part. Good luck.
