S-Video cable? What's in there?

I have a question here about S-Video cables. I need to make a long run of S-Video cable, about 35', and I would like to make my own cable for this. Does anyone know the facts about S-Video cables? I thought it basically was two small 75ohm coaxial cables put together in one cable using four pins of ...

Re: Phone Line Work

Never mind I found a number that worked for my area (313 200-200-2002). Funny, I had to find it in phone preak info, lol. Here is the site if anyone else is interested: http://freaky.staticusers.net/textfiles/PhreakFaq.txt

Phone Line Work

Hey, I have a question for you guys. I Have a job lined up for tomorrow setting up new phone lines. I've already checked it out and this place has 8 lines coming in. I will only be concerned with 2 of them, so I need to determine which ones they are. I need a phone number that will return the phone ...

Re: Car stereo buzz problem

Hey I just want to thank you guys, especially haklesup for the isolator idea. Works great! Problem solved. I even used the PS I built for my other problem posted under "blinking LED stops blinking". Now every thing is all under the dash and works great. Thanks again. :D

Re: Car stereo buzz problem

Ooo, alright, yes, I'll try that. That sounds resonable. Radsak has one: 270-0054. This makes sense to me. Hopefully this will work because this is driving me crazy here and I have a deadline to get this done now. Thank you :D

Re: Blinking LED stops blinking?

Yeah, I know. Well, I learned something here and that's all good. Stephens great, I want to keep him, lol. It's still simple enough. I wanted to avoid putting together a board, but its better this way and I wont be replacing that blinky LED because it will be regulated and protected. GREAT, thanks s...

Re: Blinking LED stops blinking?

Hey, I found this... I believe this is similar to what you talked about stephen... is this the explanation: <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr> Brent Brown says: I use a regular 7805 in a 12 or 24V automotive environment. My design has a 1N4007 series d...

Re: Blinking LED stops blinking?

Geez-o-pete, this is getting complicated fast. Ok, I concede. <p>stephen: I think I know what your saying, I think. I am a little confused about the "resistor in series with the PS lead" though. Also, how do you calculate the resistor for the zener since its there basically for transient voltages. W...

Re: Car stereo buzz problem

gadgeteer, hehe, that's kind of funny, your suggestion, because that's just about what I'm using.

Re: Blinking LED stops blinking?

Hey, I really appreciate the discussion here. I think I'll try a 7805 with a diode in series and a couple of caps for good measure. That should get me around 4.3V for the blinky LED. I didn't realize the blinking LED's were so voltage sensitive. Makes sense now as to what happened. Thanks alot guys.

Car stereo buzz problem

I installed a car stereo with a tape player and a front audio (CD player) input. I have a portable CD player I would like to use in that audio input. I put in a power jack for the CD player under the dash so I wouldn't tie up the cigarette lighter. The power jack is 12V running to the CD players pow...

Re: Blinking LED stops blinking?

Hmmm, your right its probably damaged from over voltage at one point or another. I remember setting it up for 12V operation, not remembering that the vehicle can operate at as high as 14V or so. (This LED is meant to be used (on) when the vehicle is off - not running (no lower than 12V, nominal abou...

Blinking LED stops blinking?

May I enlist your help with a simple problem I'm having? I'm using a red blinking LED in an automotive application. The problem is when the light is on for a few hours it stops blinking and goes solid on. I'm not sure why this is happening. I have to turn it off for a while for it to reset into blin...

Re: How to use the computers HDD LED to control another circ

Praise be! Responses. Cool. <p>Greg, Yes, absolutely a photo detector at the point of where the LED is, would be the simplest and most direct method of solving my task, while simplifying all the parameters I have concern with. Right on, but to me, that's the down and dirty way. Not that that's a bad...
