Yep, happens to most all of them eventually. mine has broken twice. i had it repaired at the camera shop and the next time i put in new batteries it broke again. i'm sticking to a piece of tape. i've seen you can buy the replacement door online and i've seen the instructions for replacing it yourself via a google search.

The washing machine wont agitate?


There are many possibilities for this problem. you will have to check all of them one by one mentioned as follows :--- There is a lid switch in the washer. The washing machine will not start spinning till the lid is closed. In some cases it has been seen that lid is closed still the washer does not agitating. in this cases the lid switch has to be checked. if the lid switch is faulty then the closed lid will not be detected by the washing machine, and it will not start agitate cycle.
But if the lid switch is ok checked, then other possibility can be fault in the motor coupler. Many a times the motor coupler is broken .The motor coupler is plastic/rubber kind of material fitted on the shaft of the motor .Check properly if the motor coupler seems cracked, worn out loose or broken then it needs to be replaced to solve the issue. But if motor coupler is checked ok then other possibility for this problem is the spinning belt. If the belt is worn out or loose or cracked/broken then it needs to replace.
Only for GE washers. In GE model washers, there is a clutch used for proper spin speed. If the clutch wears out, it has to be replaced.But if clutch/belt seems ok. then other possibility is driver motor itself .check if the motor has power if not then the motor is got internally burnt .in this case the drive motor needs to be replaced. but if drive motor is functioning properly then other possibility to be checked for this fault is the transmission shifter and pulley. If the transmission shifter becomes defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. Replacing the shifter is bit time consuming and tough job. you will require proper tools to deal with this problem.. But if the transmission shifter is properly working then other possibility to check is the Agitator itself.If the transmission is moving properly but the Agitator is getting stuck and not moving properly then its the fault in the agitator assembly that has to be replaced to solve the problem. This will help.Thanks.

Battery door retaining lugs broken,also the plastic lugs on the main body that the battery door needs to latch onto are broken off ,cannot use camera as unable to secure batteries in the camera ,door will...


KODAK doesn't sell battery doors for any of their models.
A repair for this fault is 24,47 pounds + shipping to the repair centre.
If you already have the battery door; I suggest you will have a local camera TECH to attach the door to the unit.

Fujifilm finepix s700 is not turning on


OK

First check the battery door to make sure that it is closed properly. If you have a media door (the door which covers where the media cards are inserted) make sure that is closed properly. If this is the case then check that there is no plastic broken off. The doors contact with microswitches which allow the camera to turn on.

On the camera there is also a playback button. (green triangle) If you hold this and the camera turns on then your power switch is faulty.

Failing all of this then put some power into the camera via an adapter. If the camera turns on then it is likelly to be a battery fuse.

In all instances you will need to send the camera to be repaired at the fujifilm service centre. Web address below.

Canon s5 is it will not power up


OK, since I'm an engineer I couldnt resist the temptation to open up the beast for more than 5 minutes so I opened it up to see what's inside (I can't recommend this due to the small screws any tiny delicate connectors inside). Along the way I discovered and fixed the problem.

As is typical for broken appliances usually the primary method for succesful repair is: open, vacuum clean, close. And otherwise see what happens along the way.

What I found in my case is very simple: when I close the battery compartment latch you are supposed to hear two sort of "clicking" sounds. The first one is a obvious one which happens when the plastic of the lid snaps into the plastic latches on the camera body, it is a clearly audible plastic-on-plastic like clicking sound. The second clicking sound, which was the missing link to make my camera work, is a higher pitched, lower volume, metal spring like snapping sound. I don't know where that latch occurs but it only happens when I push the plastic lid all the way in even after it seems it is already fully secure. Without that second metal-like click my camera won't power on. I can reproduce the problem by closing the battery lid but not to the point of the second "click".

So my simple solution is, push or jam your battery lid all the way in until you hear the metal-spring like clicking sound. Worked for me, hopefully works for you too.

R60 laptop keyboard removal


Samsung R60 plus laptop keyboard removal

Hi - It's relatively easy!

Remove battery.

Close (but not latch) the lid.

Gently press each hinge cover at the rear of the unit where it meets the base unit (You'll see a joint in the plastic) and get a satisfying click as it lifts. Carefully open the unit almost flat (- careful!) and use a small rounded watchmaker's or preferably similar dimension plastic / wood implement to lift the hinge through the hinge recesses until the switch/indicator plate clicks out at each edge. Then gently use light pressure to remove the rest of the plate away from the keyboard top side. There is a lifting point above the keyboard between the Pause and Insert keys if you need to apply a little extra pressure. There are several moulded clip pieces along the front (keyboard edge of the plate). There are no screws or wired connectors underneath - so lift away. There are two screws underneath the case which hold the keyboard in one either side of the CD/DVD drive locating screw. Turn the machine back over and locate the three plastic lugs in th case at the lower edge of the keyboard. Located near CTRL, Spacebar centre and Down Cursor keys, gently press each one towards the front of the machine with a flat edged implement starting centrally at the same time carefully lifting the keyboard unit. There is a flat ribbon cable connected underneath don't tug it but manouver the keyboard so that you can release it properly.

Job Done!

Replacement is an exact reversal of the removal process - use gentle care and firmly placed pressure to click the various plastic lugs int place.

Now ... about that spilt milk in the keyboard .....!

Or a reel of ducttape can come in useful.

Not turning on


Hello Ariel, You need a new battery lid. The problem is the lid has a pin that when closed properly, allows the battery to power up the camera. You can get one for $30.00 on Ebay item number 7623965577 if you act fast. This is a good camera and would be worth $30.00 (plus 5.50 shipping) to fix it. Please let me know how it works. Best regards, nightdiver
