Either fix, or buy new one? Answered

Hello! Just a regular question or help passing by. So i have this set of wireless headphones, for two years or so. ( Philips shc8535/10 ) and few months ago, one side of the heaphones stoped working. i jus thear some rambling, and screatching noises. I took them apart (Warranty is obviuosly gone), and found out that the Auxillary plug ( IN ) has it's contacts bent. You could probbably tell by the pictures i'll attach somehow. Sadly, the part doesn't have any index number on it or anything, so i can't just order it 1-2-3.  Question is, can i fix it? i mean, i can't easily take it apart, it's plastic, and it's probbably molded in it ( the contacts), i've tried bending them, but all i get is either more or less rambling noise. And other part of the question - order it online, is that possible?

How can I make the dot light up only on the last row by deactivating the counter or decoder for the left-right system. By "deactivating" I mean that I want the decoder to produce all active high signals on the other rows.

Need a timed reversible DC motor with either a string or rack and pinion.

Originally this was a way to cheat a video game.  But it kills two birds with one stone.  I get what I want in the game and I get to learn about electronics/robotics... I want to create a device that will lower a stylus to touch the screen on an ipad, then lower another stylus to touch another part of the screen.  Then 6 seconds later repeat. I thought to use 2 timers and 2 DC motors with either string attached to a spool attached to the styluses OR a rack an pinion set up.  But I don't know what type of timer I need, or how to make a switch to reverse the direction of the motor...  Thanks so much in advance!

Small proximity sensors with short range and alarm either IR or RFID

I would like to make two key fob sized units that if brought within ~20cm of each other would sound an alarm from one of the units. I've seen a pair of key fob sized RDIF alarm tags that sound an alarm in one if moved more than ~10m apart. They sell for ~$50 US but I need something that accomplishes just the opposite from this device. I want to keep two pets away from each other (one bullies the other) and such a device would I believe accomplish this task. It seems like it should be relatively simple to design but I'm an artist and machinist and know little about electronics. I purchased a book entitled Practical Electronics for Inventors that has given me some knowledge about the basics of transformers, relays, capacitors, resisters, etc. but nothing on IR or RFID transmitters/receivers. Everything I read about RDIF is geared towards one stationary reader (or large hand-held unit) and one or more transmitters. I made one collar with an IR receiver from an R/C car and a small piezo alarm that would sound when I pushed a button on a remote. This works but only if I'm in the same room with the offending animal. I need something that works when I'm away or the animals are upstairs or in another part of the house. They are indoor only pets so the device need not be weather-proof. Anyone with knowledge of such things want to lend me a hand?

Help with circuit to use either batteries OR a DC "wall wart" power pack.

I would like help with the type of circuit used in devices that can use either batteries, or a "wall wart"(AC to DC), or possibly even an AC cord if I decide to go that route (like a battery/ AC powered radio). I have a basic knowledge of electronics, but need help with this one. Is it very complicated? I'm not sure of specifics at this point, such as how many and what types of batteries (AA, AAA, 9V) what voltage, etc., just need to know how to build a circuit for this purpose. My project will use a single bright L.E.D, or possibly more, (maybe 3 watts each) and I would like to have the ability to plug it up if someone either doesn't have the batteries, or would just prefer to plug it up at all times. How does the device switch between battery and plug in? Thanks for anyone's time and help! I really do appreciate it.

How to build circuit that would offer power by way of either a "wall-wart", or through batteries.

How is the circuit built that would allow a device to be operated by either a power pack ("wall wart") or through batteries. Like in so many toys it would be either/ or. It would automatically switch between one or the other, like, say you're out of batteries and still need this device to work, you can find either the power pack, or even direct ac. I have a radio for example, which I'm sure is like so many other devices of this nature, that can be plugged in (120 volt ac), or will work on the batteries. As soon as I unplug, it automatically switches to the batteries. Is there a circuit internally that changes the 120 volt ac to "wall wart" / dc voltage? Does anyone have a schematic for such a circuit. I don't have any specifics, other than the batteries being maybe 4 D cell batteries at 1.5 volts each (6 v). Thank you.

2 images both the same introduce 2 of my instructables, cannot now change either of them!

I have 2 instructables about my lungfish hydroponics concept, one video and one step by step.  I used a screenshot from the video to start both  because I though it would be easy to change it. but now, even though it is no longer in the start page of the step by step, it is still what everybody sees when searching instructables! (And it is a crappy image!)   I have a much better image to introduce it and have even deleted that old image from the instructable but it still shows as the start point for the step by step. That is very annoying. What can I do? Either of the below images help explain what is going on, even if the user never looks at my instructable.  So I much prefer if one of those is seen by the ordinary man in the street.  Thanks Brian (Kiteman told me to repost here)

EITHER: How to make 'continuous heart pulse monitor'? OR: how to capture ECG from chest strap?

Greetings, What I am interested in is a ‘continuous heart pulse monitor’ so that I can plug that into (possibly) an arduino to drive a EECP machine. EECP machines run around $30k. So I’ll have to jigger up one myself. Usually I program in HotBasic. I am now learning ‘C’ programming language, via “Arduino in action” eBook, and sparkfun arduino Uno kit. I could sure use some help, like: Should I just buy a ‘chest strap heart rate monitor’, (Polar, or Motorola, or what)? Are there any units out there that can plug directly into a usb? Or do I need to get into wireless or bluetooth? Is a chest strap monitor more accurate than a finger or ear monitor. Should I be connecting to a laptop vs arduino? As you can see I am just beginning. Any help you can give me will surely be appreciated. Thanks for your help...Vernon

How to add 2 LEDs to my footswitch so I can see if either channel is on or off.

I have a 2-channel Marshall footswitch that I want to mod to mimic their PED802 model with on/off LEDs on it. Scoured many forums for schematics or diagrams or photos, but nothing so straightforward out there. I believe it does not require a battery to power them as it mimics the light on the amp front, but my electronics knowledge isn't so good. Anyone have a photograph of something similar? I think I need two LEDs, two resistors and a couple bits of wire, but that's all I can glean. Thanks.
