Fix or Mashup? I'd like to fix if possible

Hello hobbyists, teaches. I inherited a broken electric guitar. The head where the tuning keys go was broken off. Now I would like to know if there is a way to fix. I'm open to some ideas. The neck looks great. However, the neck is glued and doesn't detach like a fender guitar. It's an Ibenez guitar. I open to any suggestions on repair.

ZKAR V2 Mod-Fixes rapid fire problem

Hopefully you can see what this is. Replace the borken Y-clip with a grey connector. remove the blue rod and the grey connector in the gun already to make this fit. This new bullet lock fixes the rapid fire problem with the zkar V2.

Fix a Broken Key

Here's an interesting way to fix a key when the plastic loop on top breaks. It's a mini pouch with a key ring that the key can go into.I probably would've just epoxied a key ring to it, but this looks a lot nicer, that's for sure. Broken Key Fix via CRAFT

Airsoft gun fix

I bought a crappy ak-47 airsoft rifle, but it broke. Can anybody tell me how to fix it? Before you ask, what happens is it somewhat works on semi, but when it goes to full auto, it works the same as in semi. I can press the trigger very rapidly on full auto and it will go full auto. Can anyone help??

Chevy Flip Car Key Fix

I have one of those older flip Chevy fobs. Well the key broke off the fob so it's just a piece a metal and I use the fob to turn the ignition. I am looking for a fix with maybe like sugru or something to make a top portion to make it look like a key again.  Any ideas??? or plans of action? don't want to fork out another 100$ a key.

Javafix containers?

I'm reasonably certain that I didn't dream this up, but if I did I am sorry. No, not really because somebody should make a coffee brand called that. Anyway apparently there was back in the DDR a coffee brand called 'JavaFix'(spelling uncertain) Which is either a mistranslated or made up name  or it was actually called that in which case it's awesome and I have to know where to get a tin or two. (or at least a high resolution image.) Yes I did google it and no I didn't find any appropriate links. (Presumably Britney Spears owns the whole coffee industry with something weird called a "latte" or a 'frappuccino' I assume it is some type of hard drug made of amphetamines ground toddlers and the anguished cries of dying orphans...)

Fix Rattan/Bamboo furniture - NOT WICKER!!!

I recently bought a mid-century rattan dining table with four chairs.  I want to replace the cushions on the chairs - two piece, but they have snaps to keep the cushions in place.  I do not plan on having snaps on the new cushions, but that leaves me with the male part of the snaps.  If I pull them out, which I want to do, I will be left with a bunch of holes and no clue how to fix them, and since I haven't removed them yet, I have no idea how deep the holes will be.  I am open to any and all suggestions.   Thank you!   PS, I've tried to upload photos, but it's not working.

Help! Leaky Sink!

Help! I'm at my Mom's house and I heard a water drip, then a trickle and now its a steady stream of water leaking from below the sink!  I know my Momma's got some water damage under there but I just need a quick fix until she can get the bigger problem resolved.  Here are some pics of the problem.  It seems to be leaking from the top, what should I buy to seal this off?  Any particular brand that you guys know of that will work for sure?? Thanks!

Can I fix this? (Update!!!!)

Ok guys... I really need some help, I know there are some motor-heads around here on the forum, I really need some help from people on here with metal working/motorcycle/general small engine knowledge!!! See umm... yesterday, yeah well look at the pictures.. and trust me, my body is almost as mangled as the bike in the picture. I don't stop for NO ONE though, I want to fix this as my dad is pretty pissed about it (this weekend is father's day and he was looking forward to taking it out for a drive). Not only that.. MY BIKE IS TOTALED F?CK! I've done some googling and I can order some parts from the baja powersports website, as they have a parts catalog and even pictures to go with each part they sell, the weird thing is that they have like ALL the parts I could ever replace on the bike... except the front suspension.. like seriously everything under the kitchen sink EXCEPT any major front end parts (like said suspension)... Anyways guys, can someone PLEASE help me out here? I called a number on the baja powersports website and the guy said they don't directly deal with parts (even though it said it was a Canadian toll free parts number) and he asked for my postal code and found the closest "shop" next to me which is about a 30 min drive from here but oh well, I need the parts! Anyways look at the damage, it's pretty screwed up as you can see in the picture. But I want to know if maybe I can errr "bandage" it up a bit until I get said parts. The rim is kinda bent too... but I think it'll still roll forwards, I have the front end back together, my the left side sheered right off the bike and that part of the suspension will have to be replaced aswell.. Long post I know, but I'm a bloody hurting unit today, and my dad is very pissed off with me, this is a BRAND NEW bike guys! Surely someone can help me figure something? UPDATE>: After playing some phone tag and talking to A LOT OF PEOPLE over the phone, I'm getting like $500 worth of bike parts shipped to me within one business week, RIGHT TO MY DOOR! I'll tell you now when I hung up the phone with the guy, I nearly jumped through the ceiling, it's all gonna be covered under warrenty, even the shipping!!!!! I told the guy I'll be thanking him until next year! So all in all, my knee is still buggered up, but I'm a lot happier knowing that my 2 month old bike isn't a COMPLETE write-off! Thanks for the help anyways guys.... oh wait what am I saying, thanks for the criticism! But all in all, thanks for being by my side to laugh at my foolish mistakes fellow instructables members... I hope that everyone that reads this topic will see this and learn to be more responsible when driving ANY motorized vehicle!

Fixit Clinic

For those of you in the Bay Area, next Tuesday there will be a Fixit Clinic at UC Berkeley. The organizers are inviting people of all ages to bring in broken electronics and appliances so that they can work together and learn how to fix them (or, if not possible, at least how they work). This is going to be an awesome event because the only thing better than computer reuse is computer repair. I plan on being there with my iPod and its broken scroll wheel. I look forward to finding out if this is something that can be easily repaired or if it's time to invest in a new mp3 player. This will also be a great opportunity to meet all of the local people interested in exploring computer repair and reuse. Full event details: WHAT:  Fixit Clinic WHEN:  Tuesday, Feb 23, 2010, 7PM WHERE: UC Berkeley University Village Community Center, 1125 Jackson Street, Albany, CA‎ HOW:    Bring:  1) your broken or non-working thing (carry-in only: no oversize items. 2) any tools you might already own that you think might be helpful (e.g. phillips head screwdriver) 3) a digital camera to document the disassembly and what we find inside 4) boxes, bags and/or small containers to organize (and carry away) parts. COST:   Free! WHY:    To make friends, learn how things work, and have fun! Directions: UC Village is just off I-80, between the Gilman St. and Buchanan St. exits, behind the Target.

What kind of material to use?

Okay I've procrastinated long enough to do something with my ibook's heatsink. As some may or may not know, ibooks come with thermal pads, which I unwittedly removed the old one off mine, thinking it could be replaced with good old generic thermal paste..which technically would be better for it.Unfortunatly folks the heatsink wasn't designed to clamp down onto the cpu like a normal heatsink should do, as it has to cover several different gpu/memory chips of different sizes, making a small gap between the heatsink and cpu.I've heard of people using a square or even round piece of steel or copper or something to wedge in with some thermal paste. Well, all I can think of off hand to use that might work is some sheet metal that has some white paint or something coated on one side, and a round steel (?) rod out of an old printer that's been sitting around. I presume the latter would probably be better.Can someone suggest what would be best? Should I try cutting it with a hack saw or try getting someone's bandsaw so I can get a better cut? Right now my ibook is reporting a cpu temp of 53 of Celcious, which really, compared to when it's turned on from a cold start, is really F***** slow and very laggy, it often hangs for minutes at a time. It's horrible to use sometimes, but at the same time it owes me absolutely nothing so I won't cry if it burns out.

The Future Needs Fixing!

As you may, or may not, be aware, Sugru have done a bit of a re-launch of their site & community. Guess who was was of sixty or so people asked to help? (Blink, and you'll miss me!) Sugru is a brilliant material for Makers, with hundreds of projects already posted on Instructables, it comes out of the packet like sticky modelling clay, after a few minutes it starts to cure, until it fully sets as a food-safe silicone rubber that will adhere to most surfaces.

123d App

Just a question if anyone can help. I've downloaded the 123dapp program to my pc for the 123dapp challenge but it keeps closing out/shutting down when I try to do anything with the prim. I've already searched this topic on Autodesk site and found an older thread about it but no fix. Is there a fix for this to stop this from happening? I've also unistalled and reinstalled the program and it's still behaving the same way.

RAM error cause / fix

I've started getting system service exceptions, and have linked the cause to the RAM, which has shown around 10 errors when tested, mainly that certain pairs do not store data accurately, on at least one of the sticks. I need to ascertain the cause of these errors to see if the warranty covers it. Would it be possible to get or write a program to keep writing to the defective locations, to prevent important applications using the space?

Broken bass amplifier

Hey, I have this 10w bass amplifier for home practice. Problem is that it gives no sound through the speaker, but it works fine through the headphone output. I have Checked the fuse, which was ok. I have also connected other speakers to the amplifier to see if it is the speaker itself that is broken, it seems like it is not. Seems like quite a curious problem, but can it be fixed? It sure would be nice to play without headphones again.

How to fix "Please excuse me, that was very impolite!"

Instructables users whose native language is not English may sometimes get this error: "Please excuse me, that was very impolite! Exception javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: ServletException in '/common/newlayout.jspx': Can't insert page '/pages/explore/type/instructable_body.jsp' : ISO-8859-10 blah blah blah to the end of the error page" The solution (or rather a workaround) is to change the order of preffered languages so that english(en-US or en) would be the topmost preffered language. If using Firefox, you should go to Preferences->Content and then reorder preferred languages. On Chrome(or Chromium) you can access the list by clicking on the wrench icon, then Preferences->Under the hood->Change the font and language settings->Language.

Help me fix ma zune!

I've got to fix this damn zune, there's no warrenty on it and all in all it's a piece of crap. The guy doesn't care that much if it can't be fixed. I've got shit webcam reference pictures. You'll see that the battery has the terminals connected to a small IC board with 3 solder pads on it, and a voltage regulator of some sort on the bottomside of it. The ribbon cable has 3 little metal spades that solder to those pads on the battery. There's voltage coming out of the pads (I don't have a voltmeter, just a tongue but that works just as good). When I've got the ribbon cable soldered to the battery and I touch the end of it to my tongue I can feel current, so why is it that only once in a while I get power to the zune? Like if I wiggle the cable around sometimes I can get a low battery symbol to come up and then it shuts off. I don't know why it's still showing a low batt symbol because I charged it and it feels like there's a good charge in there so what's the problem? I wanna get this fixed so I can play around with it, no I've never had the pleasure of a zune :p. Thanks guys for anything you can help me with. I was thinking maybe the IC came loose from soldering/desoldering the cable a few times, but it still appears to be stuck on the board pretty good. Well look at the pictures and decide for yourself. It's starting to look like I'll be buying a new battery, which apparently the ipod 30/60 gig batteries are the same size/amperage and can be used in the zune and at a low price of $14, I can probably get a battery that'll last longer than the factory one eh?

broken lcd?

I'm building a little teleprompter, and I remembered my family had an old "broken" portable 7" dvd player. It turns out that just the little powerbrick was broken, BUT the display seems really washed out. Like, I hooked up an old Gamecube, and if you view it at an angle, you can see the little cube dancing around and everything, but if you look at it straight on (like most people), it's just a lot of bright white. Is it broken, or is there anything i can do to fix it? The color and brightness buttons do nothing.

A fix; Error 500 & inability to download pages fully

For some time I have had issues fully downloading pages from this site. Firefox seems to hang when just a little of a page is left to download, and I have had the same on sites that use the animated Flash spinning wheel. I found the following two fixes. Just over a week ago, Firefox asked to update to 3.5.6 which I allowed. Today looking for fixes, I tried Firefox >help>Check for updates, and got a error message saying not posible as Update XML file malformed (200). Therefore I downloaded Firefox and installed it over the top of my existing Firefox, in order to retain my settings. I also changed settings in Firefox >tools>options>content and clicked on Fonts & Colours Advanced, there under Character Encoding, I changed Default Character Encoding to Unicode (UTF 8) and I made sure that "allow pages to chose their own fonts instead of my selections above" remained ticked as always. (for me) My reasons for the #2 fix, was that I have been monitoring fault reports for code coming off Instructables for the last 2 days, and the code was showing lots of failures with defining the display properites of each Instructables' page I downloaded. My MS Outlook broke about the same time Firefox asked to update, as mentioned in #2 above, and I had been useing a work around, while thinking about what to do, after Outlook's Detect and Fix  failed to help. After doing #1 & 2 above, I find Outlook has fixed itself. Sometime ago, I had lots of trouble, becuase a friend was sending postings to a Yahoo News Group, from Unbuntu/Evolution (An app like Outlook but Open Source) The group moderator had to manually release from the sin-bin each posting by my friend. At that time, I was the only person replying via the newsgroup to my friend, and Yahoo's robot moaned to my ISP that I was sending out spam/virus. I have good relations with a senior team leader with my ISP and he got on the phone to me. And gave me a date of when it happened. I went into the headers of my emails out that day, and found the trouble was my replies to my friend via the newsgroup was encoded in UTF-7. I preview all incoming email on the WWW in Mailwasher, I had already been telling my friend his emails were mucking up my Mailwasher. I checked out UTF-7 on Wikipedia and found the email standards authorities strongly advised against its use. Having some UTF-7 encoded emails on my computer, caused my whole system, to slow down, or lock up for minutes at a time, AND I was having trouble with Instruibles page downloading then too. Yahoo I discovered, saw UTF-7 encoded email as spam/viruses because its filters could not read UTF-7 very well, so stuck them into the sin bin, for the human moderator to check over. AND UTF-7 encoded email on my PC could not easily be checked by AVG, so AVG was locking up my system while trying to scan these emails. I had to purge all the UTF-7 email off my PC before things went back to normal. Normally, that newsgroup postings are archived on my PC for 6 months before deletion. My reason for discussing UTF-7 is to show what incorrect formats and coding can do to a PC, and why I chose UTF-8 for #2 above, the option i had there was something beginning with Western... I would appreciate hearing if the above has helped anybody, otherwise I will never be sure if it was not just plain luck. Peter

How to mend a clock?

Hi. We love clockwork, steampunk etc and keep buying clocks and watches that arent working. The plan is to deconstruct them to make some other things but now we have several clocks (early 20th century) that we think could be got to work. However we dont know what to do. Does anyone know an online place that tells you (for free) how to do this? I know there are loads of dvds and books but am hoping we wont have to go down that route. thanks

How to improve Instructables.com !

Hi, I am web designer so I will be specific. These little things bug me but they must drive crazy those ordinary PC users. It seriously degrades the overall user experience on this web ! Here I will point to current problems and show you how to fix it. All following is about EDIT MODE. Constructive critisism, right ? :) UPLOAD IMAGES I know you are using jQuery UI 1.8.11 on this site. Now there is no indicator IF the file uploads at all and/or in case of bigger file/slower connection how long it needs yet ! You have it already in use, when "updating" small progress bar I saw used in images area. Use following it will do miracles: http://jqueryui.com/progressbar/#animated UPLOAD IMAGES AGAIN :) Put buttons SELECT FILES + UPLOAD FILES side by side ! Imagine adding 20 images the upload button goes down. Do not force user to think let alone to do things extra, hide buttons from him ! Thanks. And not to forget ADD there tiny link sor of button to DELETE ALL IMAGES before uploading. What if you choose by accident wrong folder and upload 20 images you do not want to. Sort of CHECK ALL + DELETE function so you can for instance uncheck those you want to leave there. Thanks. CLOSED WINDOW BY ACCIDENT = SAVE This happens. You edit for a while, close window only to realise content is not saved. Could you implement: * AUTO SAVE function after like 5 mins ? * if NOT saved ! = give him JavaScript pop up with "You have unsaved draft. Do you want to continue or save first ?" * IF SAVED = let user close window, no big deal * if saved = add to left small greyish message Saved ... or the button itself * NEW content = button says SAVE NOW * if saved = itself could go grey and have text SAVED = when content changes, turn it orange again ! * the same functionality that GMAIL uses, it is simple REORDER STEP Biggest pain here ! I can have like 20 steps, want to move 1/2 of them for instance. Let us reorder ALL STEPS simply ! Click on the reorder button and offer, let us reorder, offer us small OK button or some function to toggle the "moving" state back to stationary. ADD STEP + vs. INSERT STEP Enlighten me please if mistaken. Do you realise these 2 buttons EACH NEXT to each other do the EXACTLY same thing ? Delete one :) EDIT AREA FOR TEXT The window is too small. Lenghty steps are pain to write and review on such size. Enable resizing handle the same you already have in forums post edit mode ! ERROR WARNING MESSAGES Get rid of those ugly default JavaScript message windows please. Use this and style it to your web orange :) http://jqueryui.com/dialog/#modal-message http://jqueryui.com/dialog/#modal-confirmation Dear Instructables.com look at screenshots for better reference. Do not let me waste two hours of my time figuring out stuff and writing this post. Thanks :) Best regards -- Krsiak Daniel http://linkedin.com/in/krsiakdaniel

How to fix error in title of my instructable?

I recently submitted my first instructable, "Easy But Addicting Garlic & Butter Snack Mix".  Before publishing it I spell-checked it twice and made good and sure that there were no typos or mispellings.  It has now been published, and there is a GREAT BIG TYPO in the title!!!  It appears this way: "Easy But Addicting Garlic & Butter Snack M&hellip".  This is not how it was submitted, and when I click on the entry the title appears just fine; it is only in the main page of Snack Food Contest entries that it appears wrong.  I have submitted 2 emails to the instructables team but keep getting automated responses that are of no help.  I can't seem to fix the problem in "edit" from my account, as it appears to be fine when I view it that way.  How did this happen, and how do I get it corrected?  Help!!

PCB Help: Need to make new dial or short out for coffee grinder

I just followed a great post to hack my Delonghi Coffee Grinder here: http://ping-pong-balls.blogspot.ca/2012/03/so-youve-bought-delonghi-kg89-how-to.html However in the process I shamefully snapped off one of the knobs and part of the circuit board attached to it snapped. I'm wondering if there's a more or less easy way to fix this, such as a short circuit around the timer, or perhaps even create a new makeshift dial. I'm a PCB novice, so any tips or re-directions would be great. Thanks!

LG monitor has faded picture and then goes black

Hi, I’m experiencing problems with my LG Flatron Wide. The screen comes on with a very faded picture and then goes black. I assumed that maybe the capacitors (like for others) needed to be changed. However, I have opened the monitor and the caps look perfectly fine, no bulges or anything. Does anyone think I should just go ahead and try changing the caps anyway? Or could anything else be wrong? Thanks a lot.

A Shoutout: Make Your Instructables Better

Just want to say something: PEOPLE NEED TO USE MACRO MODE ON THEIR CAMERAS. Just press the button that looks like a flower. It lets you take macros, which are for taking close up pictures. You have no idea how many instructables there are out there with incredibly blurry pictures.

SONY HANDYCAM ERROR

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 NTSC Error message: "reinsert the cassette"      Ok, I remove and reinsert it.... Same error message. So, I google and get this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4K0SpC9Ris I don't really understand which pin they refer to removing and cleaning, so I try solution 2-remove battery for a while. It works for a short time, but the battery removal solution no longer works. Suggestions?

Links to groups lead to featured groups

When I click on this group, it leads to a list of featured groups: Pro Knexers https://www.instructables.com/group/https://www.instructables.com/group/proknexers// That also happens with this group: Knex Builders https://www.instructables.com/group/https://www.instructables.com/group/Knex_Builders/ If you click a link above and look up at your address bar on your browser, it's not the same link. There's more groups this happens to. Is this just me? Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Not to old laptop needs TLC. Help me with ideas?

So, My sister had a laptop and let her neanderthal boyfriend at it with a screwdriver and what looks like brute force. The contact that the charge cable plugs into needs to be re soldered and i would have been just fine but he broke up the case pretty bad.. I think everything would be fine if i put the goods in a new case or something but i thought it post here to get some ideas. Fire away! thanks.

making printed ink on plastic permanent?

Hi, I have transparent plastic and I want to print on it, which works but when the plastic touches something the ink gets wiped out. It doesn't seem to dry, I left it over night and it was still the same. How can I make it permanent and keeping it as transparent as it is? I can't just add normal varnish because it would also wipe out the ink. Will hairspray work(I don't have it in my home right now), or will it make the surface of the plastic uneven so it's less transparent? Are there other ways? thanks

Fix "Quick Links" on profile pages?

I noticed that the "Quick Links" on our profile pages (to inbox, following and image library) over lap the little grey icon images (now that the website has changed). It's not a really "big issue" or anything, but its something that could get fixed. ;) see image.
