iPod Nano 3rd gen haz DIED please help!

Yes, that's right. I'm unhappy about it. I turned it on, and it worked, turned it off, then 45 minutes later, it wouldn't turn on. IT wasn't dropped, banged, or touched. It wasn't EMP'ed or anything. IT won't turn on, it won't synch to my computer, and no the lock isn't on. It's about 18 months old. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My fave LED just DIED!! Please help!!

My latest work involves one of those LED's that change color as they glow. I'm using a battery pack i ripped off of something because it has a switch pre installed. It holds 4 AA batteries. I've tried it with the LED in question before, and it worked just fine. I was testing it again after some assembly and BAM, twas dysfunctional. It glows very feebly. So I switched with my one back up LED. That one won't even light. What did I do wrong? Did I over power it? Where can I go to purchase a new LED of the color-changing type? How do I not kill this one?

R.I.P Les Paul =(

Les Paul died today, August 13th. The legendary guitarist reached 94 years old before he passed away from respiratory faliure. The guitar, the best gibson guitar and the one that made the rock and roll sound all possible is his namesake, and yet he doesn't get nearly as much media coverage as Michael Jackson. Why? Michael Jackson didn't write most of his material, and Les Paul has revolutionised modern music as it is today. Quincy Jones made it all possible for the singer, and the one with talent who is much older and more talented barely gets a mention on the morning radio. Here, I pay homage to a fellow guitarist, and inspiration.R.I.P Les Paul! =(

Ray Bradbury has died.

Ray Bradbury, prolific and influential SF author, has died aged 91. His keynote book was "Fahrenheit 451", which portrayed a future world in which books are illegal, and for many years Bradbury refused to allow his books to be published in anything but paper formats (although he was eventually bullied into giving permission for digital publishing, Amazon UK does not currently sell any of his works for the Kindle). But, if you've never read any of his work, I'd start with Something Wicked This Way Comes*.  It's not SF, but it is powerful and disturbing (especially to a ten year old voracious reader). (*Other retailers are available.)

Why flashing Laser Died?

I have a laser pointer from the dollar store which I have hacked to fit a usb cord. 3 button batteries came with the laser, so, I figure 4.5v is right. Then I was hacking a magnetic door alarm (siren when the magnet is away from it) Again- 3 batteries, so 4.5 v plus or minus x. The alarm hack is to provide pulsing DC when the magnet is spun in a drill past the reed switch in the alarm. So, I plugged the laser into the pulsing DC, and it worked for a while, then crapped out.Why did it die? slightly different v from different chemistry in the batteries?or from flashing?

Little Gem MkII may have fried my ipod?

I`ve built and was testing a Little Gem Mk II amp on a breadboard and for audio signal input i used my ipod shuffle 2nd generation. What happened was that the output sounded very distorted ( probably too large of pin 1-8 bypass capacitors) before the ipod stoped working. For the first two times i pluged it to the pc the orange light came on steady, not blinking as expected. From the third time on i got no response at all. So, is the amp - and me - guilt of killing the ipod? (considering that it was 4~5 years old and may have died of natural causes)

Lenovo laptop died!? Any ideas? Answered

I've got a "Lenovo Flex 2-15 Laptop" that recently just randomly shut down and died as if the battery and power was disconnected. I think this might have been caused by a faulty USB device drawing too much current. (specifically, a arduino-based gimbaled motor controller for camera stabilization on my quadcopter) When it was plugged in, the second I clicked to 'connect' to it via a GUI software interface for it, my computer instantly shut down. Since then it shows no signs of life. Any ideas what could have happened and why it does not boot? It appears to still be under warranty so I'll see what I can do. I really hope that bad things didn't happen. My gimbal still works, but I guess a glitch in the software on the gimbal caused a transient voltage spike or overload on the USB port and either tripped some sort of safety protection or even worse, the mobo failed. Maybe the 5V regulator in the laptop and the one in the gimbal didn't agree with eachother and got into a bit of a voltage war!?!?!? IDK. I have a sneaking suspicion that it is a faulty polyfuse between the battery and MoBo that's failed. The gimbal has a simple 5V 78m05 SMD regulator between the 12V lipo and 5V logic stuff. However the USB and 5V regulator share the same common connection. I think if something really bad happened, like the voltage regulator failing and dumping 12V into the USB port even for a short time, then I would expect the magic smoke to have escaped from the gimbal and the computer. From my experience, common AVR microcontrollers tend to fail pretty spectacularly with 12V. Since the gimbal still works, I am pretty confident that a low impedance 12V transient had not occurred. I think maybe the gimbal took too big a gulp of current and set off some sort of USB overcurrent protection. But I cannot open the thing, damn modern laptops don't even have removable batteries anymore GRRR! I'll file a warranty claim and see what happens, but does anyone have a better idea what could have gone wrong?

My actuator died after just 2 months. Was the relay the villain?

I set up a linear actuator on a timer with a relay and 12 Volt 5 Amp battery exactly like to project you show on your site. It worked like a champ for about 2 months the stopped. I thought maybe the battery need a recharge but that wasn't the issue. When the switch opens and remains open the red light on top of the relay remains on. I keep the door open for about 4 hours in the morning then it closes. It opens again for about 4 hours before dusk then closes again until the next morning. My concern is that the red light on the relay is indicating that the switch is on continuously sending electricity to the actuator. After 2 months it just fried the actuator.  I took apart the actuator and it looks like its brand new with no black spots on the copper wires. I'm hoping I just have a bad actuator.
