Resposta para "Newton MessagePad 2000 Battery Door Doesn't Open!"Sending it to Frank is never a bad idea. He’s a good guy and will do it for low cost. This sounds mechanical though. If you are comfortable cracking your MP2000 you may be able to fix it. Looking inside my MP2000, the release latch moves a small lever inside, about 1 inch from the battery opening. Maybe the lever broke and the release latch can’t move it.
Resposta para "Why are my clothes not drying?"My kenmore elite also was drying less, taking longer to dry. I was able to disassemble it by checking youtube. The exit duct from the drying drum to the hose leaving the back of the dryer was full of lint. In my case this was in the front of the dryer. Now I clean it every 2 years as a maintenance task.
Resposta para "Where can I purchase parts for the nest 2nd generation thermostat?"This won’t help people with repairs, but I just have to brag about my luck. :-) I was browsing through a big flea market (does flea market translate in other countries?). I bought a couple of cheap tools that I needed . . . then I came across a typical table with some junk, and there I saw it. A Gen2 Nest! I picked it up and it even had the base attached. I asked the guy if it worked, and he replied: “what is that thing anyway?”. I can’t even tell you how cheap it was. I paid the guy and headed for home, plugged in the USB cable, and it works. I haven’t installed it because I replaced my failed Gen2 with a Nest E that was on sale for $129. But now I have a spare Nest for when it inevitably fails. Even though I’m angry about the Nest policy of not selling parts, I have to say the Nest E is good. It’s missing some features, but it has what I need. The display is not high-resolution, but it’s good enough.
