Tinned my soldering iron, now it wont work?

Hi there. I recently read an instructable on here on how to solder (rather, read through several) and all of them mentioned that it was imperative to tin the tip of your soldering iron. So I took out my trusty butane soldering iron, and tinned it with a layer of solder so thin, I can't see a thickness to it, and can only tell it's there because it's shinier than the tip of the soldering iron. My problem, is now the tip doesn't appear to get hot enough to melt solder (?!), as no matter how long I hold it directly on a piece of solder, it never actually seems to melt. I tried brushing the tip with some sandpaper (while cold) and a diamond drill bit (gently! while hot) to try and remove some of the solder from it, but to no avail. I can no longer solder anything. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong or how I could fix this? Thanks, Adam

lawn mower wont run

Hi I have a Huskquavarna lawn mower I bought for $25 last year. The gas tank and carb were completely gummed up. I cleaned up the gas tank and rebuilt the carb and it ran fine all last summer, So this year I haul it out and put some gas in it won't run! The gas I put in it is kind of old but that never stopped it in the past. I know it has a good spark as when I spray a little carb cleaner in it fires right up,, until the "fuel" carb cleaner is used up. I cleaned up the carb (took it apart, blew it out, and cleaned it still it just5 wont suck the gas or what? Any suggestions?

I have made a quadcopter. However, it wont lift off :( I really need help with that.

camera's wont work with batteries? Answered

I got 3 different camera's, and they all 3 fail with multiple brand batteries. they start up, work the lense out, and then turn off. then, when i try to restart it, the same thing happens, only now the lense goes in, instead of out. it appears to be at least 3 different brands of batteries, all with 3 different camera's. the batteries that DO work, however have ran out. how is this possible? they all measure 1.5V (-ish, like all batteries) even the ones that did work. is it possible for manufactors to let theyr devices only accept a certain brand of battery?

Unresponsive pages

For some reason today the shortcuts menu, and all image thumbs are not working.. I hover over the Shortcuts menu and nothing drops down, clicking it takes me to my shortcuts customization page as normal, and the drop menu works there so i can click Recent. but on the Recent page, its dead again.. Right now while typing this the Shortcuts menu is working, but when i click on it to go to Recent its dead again after i get there. Secondly in all ibles, clicking on any image thumb to make it the displayed image in the step fails to do anything, it just sits at the 1st image. I'm not sure what has happened or if its something in my browser all of a sudden (Firefox, worked fine before, nothings changed, not even closed it before this happening). even browser restart didn't help, nor clearing cache or cookies for the site. something happen to instructables during the night?

External HD wont power down??

Hey guys, i was wondering if perhaps someone has a similar drive like mine.For some reason, on my ibook, when plugged into firewire, it powers down automatically after 5 or so minutes of not being used, that's good. But I just cleared it off and formatted it for NTFS and put it on my server, via firewire aswell, and while data transfer and everything seems to be fine, the hard drive does not spin down, ever. And when I feel it, I can feel the heads clicking, when there's no program accessing it on my server that I can see. Perhaps it doesn't get the chance to spin down..Either way, I'm concerned about the heat it makes, and mostly, about it's longevity. Does anyone have a solution?? Is there some patch for xp that makes external drives power down??
