There are an infinite number of solutions to this. However, if you also stipulate that the three collectors between them bought the entire collection then there is only one solution.

There were seven coins to start with. The first collector bought half the collection (three-and-a-half) plus one-half or four coins, leaving three. The second collector bought half the remainder (one-and-a-half) plus one-half or two coins, leaving one. The third collector bought half the remainder (one-half) plus a half or one coin, leaving none.

SOURCE: Coins placed in the disc slot of the Wii.

I would not advise using the drive if there are any loose objects inside. Doing so would void your warranty, cause damage to the wii, and possibly even bodily injury. If the disc should come into contact with the loose object while spinning at high speed, the disc could shatter and the shards may actually break through the drive casing.

A loose object, if it catches something traveling at high velocity, can easily damage the casing and the wii remember

The only practical solution is to remove the drive from the wii and obtain a replacement. It would be prohibitive to try to fish out the loose object, since you might damage the internal components in doing so. you will need to call Nintendo ( 1-800-255-3700) and see if they can fix it or guide you through taking the disk drive out

I don't think they will slide out if you turn the MBP on edge. I would take it to the Apple store and be prepared for a nice bill. I hear kids also do this in the disk player in the car to get it fixed It won't be cheap, I 'm afraid,

At the very least the drive will need to be removed, I fear. It may actually have to be replaced. A few hundred dollars, I would guess.

Good luck

SOURCE: my son stuck a coin in the ds slot and it wont turn on

It probably blown one of the two fuses on the motherboard. I recommend taking it to your local game store to get it repaired, or if you have the tools and feel you can do it yourself go to this link: Fuse

Hi there, I just got myself a K1000 Pentax camera, as a gift. I'm not a collector nor photographer, I just wanted to know more about this camera its value and if one can just keep it as a collectors...

You have yourself a camera with pedigree and it would be a shame not to put a few rolls of film through it before you decide whether to continue to use it, store it as a collectible or sell it on.

Using a manual film camera is interesting and rewarding and can be fun - it is an experience no one should miss. Like learning to drive, at first there seems too many things to think of but with the help of a little reading most people soon master the basics.

There is plenty of information online - see link below...

Have fun!

What is the value of an old Singer serial number EN150239, good condition and in full working order. Complete with original manual and bobbins, needles, etc

It depends on if it's a crank or electric is it in a case or cabinet , paint, rust, etc. there are many variables , and can range from $20- $300( for the very best with all the bells and whistles) if it's the best I would look for a company that sells to collectors otherwise you just have a nice display and will not get the real money out of it. If you find a collector who wants or needs that machine to complet their collection you may get more. If you would like to do more research on this machine I suggest International Sewing Machine Collectors' Society

Epson C2600N waste toner collector full warning, after replacing the collector


You have emptied the waste toner bottle, now you have to tell the printer that you have done so. The waste toner collection system has a "latch" (electrical signal) that is tripped when the bottle is full. it may be a pressure sensitive switch under the bottle or a photo-sensor that senses the toner level when full. I don't know the sequence of events to "switch" that latch. Usually on the larger machines it is a series of keystrokes on the printer's keypad, starting with turning the machine off and holding down a series of keys while turning the machine on (known as the "maintenance mode". Once you are in the maintenance mode, you can "trip" that "latch" to let the copier know that the toner collection bottle has been emptied.
