Hmm...... Well someone is missing a golden opportunity. These DLP Televisions...... If you could find the suppliers of the parts for the Lamp Modules. You could make quite a killing on replacement Lamp Modules. Example: For awhile I was rebuilding HP laser printers. In the fuser, they used a Halogen...

Because you stated that this is to be use in a child's toy..... You want to mount the speaker inside the case. Reasoning.... Cutting a hole in the case, and mounting the speaker in it. Then covering it with a mesh of some kind. Won't stop the little tinkers from putting there fingers or other object...

Re: Recommendations

Since someone mentioned BG Micro I will put in a good word for them. Over 10 years ago I had a "misunderstanding" with one of their order takers and I hung up on him for being rude to me. I immediately got a call back from the owner apologizing for the behavior and explaining what had happened. I w...

Jtrap, the only trouble with this is some parts could be on backorder for a month. Of course you could always delete these parts from the original order. My experience with backorde...

I recently had a $40 order go in and the postage was almost $8 on this. Not good but close to what anyone else charges, so what the hay. Well one order comes in a week later at which time I am informed that some parts were being shipped separately from a different warehouse. And they did come in se...

Craig, The 5.26 volts from the AT Power Supply is just on the hairy edge. But not a problem with most AT Power Supplies. TJ Byers wrote a excellent article on AT Power Supply repair in the Sept 1996 issue. You can down load the article from the Back Issue area of the Nuts&Volts Site. I don't see any...

It needs to be flexible too. Most buttons I have seen are actually a carbon filled rubber dot fused to a rubber or silicone molded keypad face. The dot is often up to 100 mils thick and homogeneous. For these types, I think you could abrade or even slice off a thin layer to expose fresh carbon fill...

You shouldn't need to buy a whole new opener unless you want to. There are plenty of universal garage door keypads that work by wiring a reciever onto the wire normally used for the inside button. Cost should be $30 to $80 depending on features and brand. There are also lots of aftermarket wireless...

I've done the Pencil lead trick. Works for awhile, then have to do it again about a month or so later. I've done the aluminum foil trick, with limited success. Problem is the spacing on some remotes are so tight, that the foil would be touching the contact points on the PC board. Also after being us...

Rubber Carbon Buttons....

If you have repaired remotes or the cheap "Radica" games. You know about the problem with the Rubber Carbon Buttons. The Carbon wears off of the back of the Rubber Buttons. Thus, the Normal Open {NO} Switch no longer works. I've tried several things...... 1) Cleaning the Rubber lightly with De-Ioniz...

That is interesting that there is no longer a need to adjust heads. I have an RCA VCR from the late 1990's that still had an adjustment for the analog audio heads. But you don't want to poke the bear and get me started on RCA VCRs. Yes, I know pretty much all about the RCA VCR's. The ones that have...

Hmm...... Well, that is strange. The old batteries that were in the game, were they standard Carbon batteries? Or were they Alkaline? Standard Carbon Batteries will leak acid when they die. Thus, corroding the battery contacts inside battery holder or compartment. Alkaline Batteries don't leak as ea...
