Whenever I plugged my webcam in, I have to wiggle the wire around a lot and if I touch it when its working, it stops. Now though, It won't work at all. Can I fix this?

It sounds like your USB terminal on your computer is bent or damaged.

This often happens.

Try using another USB port as there are usually multiple ports on the computer.

If this still doesn't work, the camera's cord may be what's having the issues as the terminals and contact points inside are bent.

I would consider getting a new webcam or replacing it if you have recently purchased it.

Hope this helped!

I have a jonway 125cc moped it won't start and the battery seems too be flat I have tried to charge it but it doesn't make any difference, the weather is quite wet and bike is left out when I&

try removing your spark plug and turning over the engine if you can see a spark your plug should still be ok if its wet around your plug it may be flooded try drying it off and trying again if you want to test your battery for charge i usually have 2 screwdrivers which i touch both electrodes of the battery then touch the screwdrivers together whilst taking care to not touch the metal of the screwdrivers if you get any spark at the contact point of the screwdrivers its not your battery if not charge it then try again if your batterys flat your lights wont work though also give your air filter a clean out that could stop it starting, also check your fuel is still getting to the carbs ok i hope this helps im ok with motorbikes but im no mechanic i know the basics good luck and be careful undertaking any work on fuel or electric use insulated drivers

Clutch for johndeere 870

That is normal for a live pto. If your tractor has a two stage clutch you should be able to stop the PTO with clutch all the way in (as in push the pedal all the way down). It should be transmission independant, meaning it will work even though the transmission is not turning AND if you are running something that has a lot of inertia, it won't push you around by driving the rear wheels even though you have the clutch in.

Boss oethe left side of my headphone is stop working


The most common cause for this, is a loose wire connection to that speaker (as opposed to the speaker being faulty).

Has anyone pulled the cord too tight or tripped on the cord? If yes, then the internal wire connecting that speaker has an internal break somewhere.

Try the following:

1) Plug headphones into music device and turn on.
2) Gently press the wire 'in' at the left earpiece (or wiggle at the earpiece end). If sound returns intermittently, then you have n internal wire break in that end of the cord.
3) Gently press the wire 'in' at the plug where it connects to your player (or wiggle the cord at the plug end). If sound returns, then there is an internal wire break at this end of the cord.

In the case of broken internal wires, it is possible to repair.

Although very fragile, it is possible to resolder these tiny wires (you'll have to burn off the enamel coating around these wires first) back onto their respective connections, or onto a new plug.

Good luck....

1998Chevy malibu won't start changed fuel filter

watch the lights on your dash.. if all the lights except the theft system go off then it has to do with your ignition.. they are a couple hundred to have installed here in Bama.. I took my dash apart and when I have a lot of problems I leave it open some so I can wiggle the wires on the bottom side of the ignition.. a cheaper thing would be call the chevy dealer and have them make you a new key from your vin.. and keep it weight free.. after they have some wear on them they do not work as well.. they fit kind of like a puzzle piece in the ignition and on one of the peaks on the key when it hits a certain place in the ignition switch it activates the " I OWN THIS CAR, SO CRANK" mode.. In my personal opinion they should have a recall on the dang things because the buyers are getting ripped off having to replace the ****.. For some reason though, a lot of the OEM wiring connections on GM's are faulty.. I still love my chevy though! Hope this helps!

My laptop won't charge. I have an acer aspire 5315 that won't charge, I had problems with the charging adapter before so I thought that was the problem and replaced it, the replacement worked for...

For a test -Remove the battery from the laptop. (leave it out) -Plug in the adapter and turn the laptop on. -Gently wiggle the adapter plugged in

If the computer powers off the solder and/or pins have broken loose from the DC jack. This is very common. Average repair bill is around $150, if your in the Denver Colorado Area I can do the repair for about $50
If it won't turn on while you wiggle the adapter and hit the power button then the adapter is bad again sadly

My dls 3500 mower will not start at all, I charged the battery but the engine wont even turn. All the wiring and fuses seem to be ok

I had the same problem. I replaced the wiring harness for a short fix, corrosion in the terminals that connect to ignition switch. This worked for a while. Then replaced ignition switch this also worked for short time. Now I just open the hood to reach behind the ignition switch and wiggle wires while turning key to start until it starts keep wiggling to get good contact. If it won't stop after it starts, wiggle wires after you turn the key to off. It will stop.

Whenever i plug my hdmi or av jacks into my tv, it says no signal

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You probably have a bad wire. You can try to wiggle the wires and see if you can catch a signal. You may need new ones. Make sure the outlet is working though. If so, hook the wires up and test them with a voltage meter to see if they are getting power.

Compaq Presario V3000 charger stopped working and now buzzes

Unfortunately there are no perfect cables, and especially in case of a laptop, when you move it around a lot, roll the cable for travel etc. it gets bent a lot, especially in the place where the elastic cable goes into the hard plug or into the charger case. The conductors inside and the inner insulation finally break, giving at first intermittent connection (what you experienced before), and finally short-circuits the cable, resulting in charger damage.

You should be fine just replacing the charger, unless all this wiggling around didn't break the laptop power socket.

When looking for a replacement charger, note the voltage of the original (it should be exactly the same in the new one), the maximum current amperage (this should be same or - better - higher than original), and the size of plug.

Good luck :)
