Re: Remove Back Cover - Hanns.G Monitor

Reminds me of an adapter I was wanting to open up. I don't think it applies to your monitor, but the two pieces of the plastic case were actually glued together. I used a hacksaw to cut around the whole joint perimeter. There might be some tabs on one face of the case that latch into the other side ...

I'm curious on what you find out..
So far the application of grease to the long threaded rod seems to have solved the problem. decided to go with synthetic grease supplied by the first well-known supplier of synthetic oil for the consumer market way back when.

Re: fading away

That's a good idea. I tried that and determined that the noise level of just the motor unit running was okay. That led me to the thought that the squealing noise comes from long threaded rod squealing against the long sleeve it's in. I'm thinking of applying a new coating of grease to the threaded r...

Re: fading away

I'd still like to check it out some more, but I'm leaning toward the idea that it's worn sleve bearings in the motor. I've noticed such squealing happen in other things in the past, especially in fans. The fan in an old dehumidifier I was using had that problem intermittently, but eventually it beca...

Re: fading away

Some garage drive units you can easily replace. most come with a new rail and chain or if it's a screw drive.. I've replaced a handful of them,, usually the plastic gear inside fails..typical.. if they had a metal gear, they'd last forever i bet. make sure everything is greased well,, even inside t...

Re: fading away

Well, to further the activity, I'm at a loss as to what "seems to make sense more than it being the worm gear drive". Perhaps it got deleted accidentally while typing. I know my "new" phone does weird over-typing and bizarre auto(in)correct, so come on back with that info. Maybe you've stumbled ont...

Re: fading away

I can produce a bit more activity and have motivation to check in today here if I ask about my present problem. The garage door opener seems to be squealing. Anyway, that seems to make sense more than it being the worm gear drive. Any thoughts on if I can replace the genie drive unit cheaply as DIY?...

Re: slippery screen

Ok, after that suggestion I found a setting called touch and hold and am trying that out by setting it to the shortest time, 0.5s.

slippery screen

My friend had a spare cell phone and gave it to me. My old cell phone was easier to use because this new one has a screen that's slippery. Holding the finger still on a spot to select something is almost impossible because the finger slips off the selected spot. Presently, I'm thinking of the possib...

Re: fading away

I check in every now and then, but I think I'll stop by more if I can remember. Then hopefully a link to here will automatically take its place on my browsers' home pages displays of icons representing my most-used links. That would remind me to stop by more often.

[sold] Retiring and Passing on the Mantle

I'm retiring from analog electronics and wish to pass on my workshop/home to an electronics enthusiast at a low price. The shop features many through-hole power MOSFETs and CD40106 through-hole IC chips. Much more than that included. The saying that all I need to invent is imagination and a pile of ...

Re: Voltage spike

You're welcome. If what you try doesn't work, the problem seems pretty possible to solve one way or another.
