Hello, I did a bad thing. I accidentally pulled the cable out of the metal connector and it broke. I don't know how to get the cable attached to the metal connector. Is there any tool out there that can help fix this so I don't have to rip open the wall and replace the whole thing?
If I understand you right the metal connector is on the wall connector and the wire is off of it if this is the case take some pliers and take the connector off the wall then take the connector and put it back on the wire just slip it in and squeeze the bottom of the metal connector so it tight on the wire this should help..

"PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT."
My oh my! I don't know of any shortcuts, and the working position does not make the operation a pleasurable one. Not in Summertime!
The time I had to repair that, I needed to pull the whole fan down. Once the whole fan was down, the rest was easy!
It's easier that it appears, but mark all the wires connected in the box. There is USUALLY a steel cable attached to the fan assembly and the box, to prevent the thing accidentally falling on someone's head.
If you don't have a helper, taking the blades off may be a good idea, but don't take my word for that. Putting them back on was no picnic.
FYI.If you don't have any bead-chain handy, a suitable lenght of sash cord is probably the best replacement.
They are sensitive little ****, I know they won't work on a florescent fixture, no lights should be on it anyway, but just in case, and the slightest thing wrong, one wire off, one ground undone, it will snap off. And they do go bad, so don't tear the house down to find the trouble when the breaker might be bad. Hook the wire into an existing 15 amp breaker and see if it snaps that off. Then you will know it is not the breaker but something in the wall. Check it out.
Use the Acer AL1916v service guide as well as the Acer AL1916p service guide to disassemble the monitor. These can be found as PDF's using Google. Please note that disassemling the internal EMI perforated metal cover nor the electronics shown are for the 1916w model.
I fixed a 1916w that had a bad power board.(Delta A190E2). I replaced two blown 1000micro farad 25v dc electrolytic capacitors made by CapXon. Other people have had similar problems with this and other brands so do not use them as replacements.
To remove the back cover you must Remove the basse stand and the five screws holding it down. Now run your fingernail along between front and back covers. There are five catches on the top, four on the sides, and six on the bottom. Two of the cathes are at the corners of the plastic surrounding the control button module.
If you can get to the EMI shield you must first pull out the four connectors that go into the perforated EMI cover. I used my fingernails to gently pull them out by pulling and rocking these small white connectors. Do not pull on the wires. Next take out the four screws holding the EMI cover. You must also take out the two screws on the AC power connector as well as the two lugs on the video connector since they are screwed into the EMI cover.
Take the control panel circuit board out of its clip noting that the ribbon cable is lightly glued down in one spot. Rotate the ribbon cable and attached circuit board up vertically so as to clear the metal panel holding down the bottom of the EMI cover as you rotate this cover up 45+ degrees. Once clear of the EMI cover let the ribbon cable rest on this metal cover as you lift the EMI cover up vertically. Note the metal tabs coming up from below the two conectors. These must be kept below the EMI cover when it is replaced so that the screw holes line up. Once the EMI cover is removed lay down the lower metal plate making sure you clear the ribbon cable and put the control circuit board on the cables end back in its clip to protect it from accidental damage.
The power board and video board can now be examined. If you see domed capacitors on the power board you can remove the board by removing the four screws. Take hold of the board and gently pull and rock the board from side to side as you pull the multipin male connector out of the female connector on the video card.
Fix the power board by replacing any blown capacitors (domed tops) and reinstall. Reverse the process decribed above puting the monitor back together. Note that before screwing on the back cover first snap the front and back covers togther using your fingers.
Have a merry Christmas and new year.
The same thing just happened to me. I took off the door panel, pulled off the white barrier, and found the problem. There is a white plastic connector at the bottom of the window that connects the cable to the window and the track for the power-window. The connector has broke and the cable cannot grip the connector so the window falls. Its hard to tell because it will still be connected to the track, its just a small part of the connector that broke off. I have found that the only way to fix it is to replace the whole assembly. Don't waste time taking apart the motor housing, it is a pain. I found, and bought, the whole assembly on ebay motors for $120.00 shipping and all. If you have some tech abilities it shouldnt be too bad. If you need more info, just e-mail me, Im waiting for my part and will be assembling soon.
That online light goes solid when your ISP completes the registration process of your modem. If this process fails, there are only 2 possible reasons. The first is your modem MAC address is not on your account with your ISP, which cannot be your case because it works on a different outlet. The second reason would be what is called ingress on the outlet. Ingress is caused by a bad outlet or more frequently a bad connector. Make sure inside your connector is clean and free of metal shavings. The problem you are describing is actually rare because usually if your having cable issues that cause a registration problem, you don't usually get a send light.
By the way, just because your tv works on that outlet doesn't mean your modem will. Your modem runs off RF frequencies that your TV doesn't come close to.
