@jennasun If it has a pipe going in and a pipe coming out AND has electrical connectors as well, then it is a canister purge solenoid or as @brandon_k called a purge valve. It normally has a mounting bracket with a rubber gasket to stop it from moving around and make clicking noise when you're driving around. It is responsible for storing vapour that occur when the fuel is exposed to air. It allows the gas to expand and escape to this unit until the engine starts up and this vapour can be burnt via the normal combustion.
Hi Sara, It most likely means that your clutch is slipping. It means when your clutch is engaging and disengaging and no power is delivered to the wheels and as a result, the car will not move forward. In other words the revs will increase without the car accelerating. The clutch will fail due to the wear and tear and also from driving habits and driving conditions.
Hi Matt, You most likely just need to re-solder the connections of the USB socket to the motherboard. Manufacturers nowadays use lead-free solder which is not as durable and certainly not as flexible as the leaded version. If you open the Kindle, just gently wiggle the socket and if it moves then you definitely have a dodgy connection to the board. If for some reason your pins are bent you can always, try to bend them back to straight or order a new USB socket and solder it on.
Hi @caked , You can buy replacement audio jack socket and you can replace it if you have the means to solder it off the board. If you do that, just make sure that you cover the surrounding area with Kapton tape to minimise the heat exposure to other components. In some of the MSI laptops the audio and USB connections are on a separate board that connects to your motherboard. If you take off the bottom lid of your laptop you will be able to see if it is on the main board or on separate. You can get replacement audio/USB boards for about $25 or $30.
Hi @darkpollo , Almost everything is possible when it comes to electronics. It depends on how much time and effort are you willing to sacrifice. I am not familiar with this particular model, however the basic principles for these devices are very similar. You have a DC-in power supply, which can vary from 3-9V, you have a rechargeable (possibly Lithium ion battery) and a circuit that is powered from the battery. In your case it seems that the playback is not possible whilst charging, so you need to get around it. If it was me, I would check the voltage rating of the charger or USB (which is most likely 5V) and the V rating of the battery. I would buy a step down converter from eBay (usually around £3, $4) and I would hook it up so the input is the charger and the output voltage is the battery’s nominal voltage. Remove the battery so you have space to put the converter in and your problem is solved. It would mean that the device thinks that it runs off a charged battery, when in reality it is powered from a...
This might be able to help you… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yERbv8ow... Dyson really went to far in designing replacement parts. It seems to me that they don’t really want you to tinker with the individual parts in the head assembly as it come as a whole replacement. Good luck!
Hi @jesscastro , I have an educated guess why your fan is louder on startup and shut down. The software they installed is most likely a fan controlling software which slows down the fan speed to an optimum RPM. As to why your fan runs full blast on startup? Probably a thermal sensor got water damaged when you spilled your drink on the machine and your laptop thinks it is overheating and runs the fans on full speed until the software kicks in on startup.
Hi @noctri , It is definitely a useful skill to have, so you will be able to fix more intricate and more complicated electronic devices. The more skill you have, the more you can fix with confidence. Needless to say that the components are getting smaller and smaller these days and manufacturers try to build everything as compact as possible, which requires micro-soldering both when manufacturing the items and when fixing them.
Hi @rdenike , I have done some digging on the web and found this website which probably relates to your issue and may offer some sort of solution. I think you need to change your actual calendar on the VCR back to the first ever year with the same starting day (according to the list on this website and then everything afterwards will fall in place. It has a running year generator so you will be able to match the years your VCR is capable of handling. https://calendarhome.com/calculate/find-like-years Hope it helps!
