Question about Radio Shack Multipurpose Laser Level

Open Question

How do I remove a stuck battery from my RS laser level?

The manual recommends removing the batteries when the level is not being used. Of course, I didn't do that and now they have leaked and swollen. I got the 1st battery out, but cannot budge the second one. I've tried baking soda to break any chemical seal. What are the chances of the laser working with fresh batteries?

Laser won't turn on.

Could be alot of things. Bad batteries, bad battery contacts. Dead main board, dead compensator.
Clean the battery contacts with acetone and a qtip. in the battery compartment and on the battery door, and install fresh batteries. Good ones, Duracell preferably. If it still wont turn on, you'll need to take it somewhere. Trimble, in their grand wisdom made it so you have to remove the decal on the front, to open the laser. So, that will need replacement even if nothing else does.

Tape is stuck inside a technic RS-TR575

This is the biggest reason why I say that the designer of these fancy little door/cradles SHOUL HAVE BEEN SHOT before invention. With a strong longnose plier break the casing of the cassette The Technics that I worked on the lid of this door can be removed from the outside Be careful with the tape itself if the recording is of great value to you that you do not stretch or break the tape. REMOVE all power batteries or mains or both ! then turn the flywheel in the OPPOSITE direction so that the tape can be unwound. You do get empty shells that can be used in the place of the one you gotta break the shell It remains a messy sort of business After you have removed the tape inspect the rolle and capstan shaft are they CLEAN and free running to prevent this from happening again. In the future it is a good habit to fast forward or rewind the tape from end to end.In the user instruction booklet some manufacturers recommend this. If you are scared to damage your machine then get this done by an expert and ask him/her to show you in future.

I have an rt7690-2 laser lever, it no longer automatically levels itself, is there a solution to fix this problem?

The last level I repaired was droped and one of the cams was stuck. I was able to open the unit, and loosen the cam so the auto level system worked correctly. These are delecate inside so be carfull and make sure the batteries are removed. It took a couple of min. to level itself, after turning the unit back on.

Spectra Precision l1242 laser level wont power up

Check to see if there is a re-set for the system. There also may be an internal fuse.

Laser not working

Sometimes you can repair an item yourself. Using sandpaper or a nail file, remove all of the "gunk" from the contacts that the leaking batteries left. You can then wipe the contacts with a little bit of alcohol to clean them up and your level should be a good as new.
