Re: cookbook search - RCA - CA3161E - CA3162E combo.

I don't have the article you mentioned, But, if you are interested I have a copy of a Radio Electronics article from Aug. 1978 (I can scan it and email it to you) that describes building a digital voltmeter (0-99.9v)using the 3161/62 ICs. . As far as the LM34 you mentioned, I believe it's output is ...

If you don't have the resourceCD Go to the DELL site look for support or driver downloads (you probably will have to enter your TAG #(It's on the side of the case??) Select your OS and Driver category(Network). based on the tag # you will see what is available for your PC. Just download the network ...

Re: No Ethernet or Network Connection

I have a dell 2400 and it shows a "Broadcom 440" network adapter. where did you find the reference to Intel network adapter? The broadcom network adapter is built into the MB(at least in my 2400), do you also have a seperate NIC card plugged in? In any event, you should have 2 discs that came with y...

Re: Best way to make very large hole in cabinet

Hi. Here are couple of ideas: Draw the size of the hole in the desired location, drill a whole bunch of holes(whatever size you are comfortable with- 1/4" sounds about right for a 10" hole) just inside the hole marking, then with a small chisel break all the metal between the holes. You can smooth t...

Re: Thumb drives and Win98SE

I don't think it has anything to do with NTFS or FAT32 file systems. IIRC, Windows 98/98se did not support thumb drives(Flash drives) nativly, you had to have a win 98 driver(supplied by the drive maker) for the thumb drive you have. Each mfr. had their own drivers for win 98. Some thumb drives were...

Re: Sharp Microwave LCD Backlight problem

Few years back I was able to get a copy of the service manual for a SHARP microwave oven from Tritronics. http://www.encompassparts.com/tritronics//
Their phone # 1-800-638 3328.
Worth a shot.

The dimesions you gave are very close to an RG 6 , except that the overall dia. is larger than an RG 6.
You might have an RG 6 QUAD SHIELD, take a look at belden.com, if that is what you have, Home Depot (among many) has the connectors and the tools.

RCA late 90's vintage TVs had a problem with bad ground solder joints in the tuner area, that resulted in all kinds of problems, Some of the problem that I've seen: no video, snow, vert collapse. While most problems related to the bad grounds showed up fairly soon, yours may be one of the lucky ones...

Re: Help, please

DevJust, RCA TVs of that vintage that had the tunner integrated on the main board were a major source of weired problems, some of the problems just did not look like it's a tunner/IF problem. resoldering all connections in the tunner/IF(remove the shields) assembly usually fixed it.

Re: Lead acid battery

CeaSar Thanks for the link to allelectronic, but, like you wrote, none of the batteries come up to specs. I think that IF I eventually decide to fix it, I will use automotive type batteries, they are cheap and available locally(Shipping is expensive for heavy batteries). Thank you JerryR<p>[ Novembe...

Re: IR Remote Receiver

Edd. The limit and polarity(travel)reversal switches are already part of the motorized tray, and a momentary closure of the N.O. switch contact is all that is required to operate the tray(in either direction). I have considered in the past the idea of taping(hardwire) into the outputs of the remote ...

Lead acid battery

I was given a 1000V/A UPS, the batteries of which are shot. The unit is old and the mfr(APC) does not support it any more. The unit is using 2 12v/24AH (YUASA NP24-12B)that as far as I can tell from reading internet posts, are Sealed Lead acid batteries(The electrolyte is absorbed in some kind of gl...
