Wanted: info book

I have 2 1997 NEC XG1101C auditorium projectors. I haven't the faintest idea where to begin and an owner's manual would probably be a good start. Except I have not found any resources online and the company has never heard of this particular projector. If anyone can help me find something to help me use these gigantic paperweights for home theater, I would be enormously grateful.

Manual air compressor

I had this idea just drop on me a few minutes ago and I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on if something like this would be feasible or not. Also if anyone thinks it's a good idea just go ahead and build it because I dont have the tools or space for something like this in any case. The idea is to have some sort of tank with a large internal volume, cut it of at the top and arrange a sort of secured piston with a heavy weight on top, attach it all to a frame so that the piston stays level and secure. The piston with the weight on can then be connected to a multi-stage pulley system to allow one to lift the  heavy weigth, sure it would take a long time but for a manual air compressor it should be feasible Then at the bottom of the tank one would have a high pressure release valve with some sort of standard connector for transfering the compressed air to a sort of pressure tank for use. I never saw anything like this before, although I'm sure someone must have done it at one point or another. So what do you all think? Any input?

Help with service/repair manuals

Anyone got any idea where I could find free service manuals on the net? I'm trying to repair my car audio system (Alpine CDA 7998R) but im stuck without much information. If anyone could help, what I'm looking at is a green pcb with D301-313 written on it, and it has a part named Q701 which looks like a very small ic with three legs at the bottom, and one at top, its surface mount and is blown up. It also has a delta sign on it with some design within, I cant read the rest of it cause its blown. Please help anyone, if you can... Whatever you may tell....

Black & Decker Bandsaw, Model DN330-H2 Manual.

Hi Folks. I have posted this in questions but that was two days ago & it still has not appeared so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try in the forums as well. The following appeared on the Cafe pages of my local FreeGle group this morning & I wondered if anyone in the wonderful world of Instructables could help. Ladies & Gentlemen I've acquired a Black & Decker Bandsaw, Model DN330-H2. It would be very helpful to have a copy of the instruction manual and I should be most grateful if anybody who has the manual for a similar model would allow me to have a copy. I've used bandsaws in the past but it would be really useful to know how the manufacturer suggests that blades are fitted and tensioned. I've tried the B&D; website and all I can find is an "exploded" diagram and a parts list. If anyone has a copy of the manual for this or any other bandsaw in the Black & Decker DN330 range in a format they could email me or perhaps a link to a web site it would be truly appreciated. All the best. N.G.

Do you need a manual for an old power tool? Try this site!

I inherited a circa 1980 Craftsman router and circa 1985 Craftsman router table from my Dad, who died last September. Since Sears seems to be on life support and I think the plug might get pulled on them, I had a look on their support pages for these manuals, while I still can. They sell parts for these models but don't have the original manuals. For a possibly similar router Sears wanted $8 for the manual. Ummm, no. This site has an awesome collection of old power tool manuals, free, and you don't have to register. http://vintagemachinery.org/home.aspx

Sams Citizen Band Radio Manuals (1961) Free to download

My mate Gerry and myself are members of the Internet Archive, a vast depositary of out-of-copy-right texts, videos and audio. Volunteers like us, are constantly uploading new materiel, its all free to download, with some restrictions, like, "for non-commercial-use only". There are books like old telephone manuals, Bell Labs monthly journals, same for Kodak, books on building televisions from the 1940s, Radio, Electricity etc a book from Popular Mechanics, called "The Boy Mechanic", training manuals, and fiction. At last count, volunteers had uploaded 1.5 million text items. In the movie archive, there are training movies, and videos from the USA Government, on things like Nuclear Power and Subs, Power stations, ships,  a lot of stuff produced to screen in schools but still useful. Plus old movies, there is 22 episodes of the old Western Bonanza, for which the copyright owner forgot to renew the copyright on. Plus more like all of Edison made movies, 1900 and before, up to maybe 1905, then stuff like his gramophone, etc. Any material uploaded, that is under copyright, is quickly spotted by volunteers and reported for deletion. Gerry in New York, collects a lot of old books from library dumpsters, all of which he scans, and uploads to the Archive. and of cause most members upload, as you dont need to registrar at all, to download. Gerry just advised me, he is uploading some CB Radio manuals, I just checked, and its 5 volumes at least, of the following, on the following link. http://www.archive.org/details/Sams_Citizen_Band_Radio_Manual_Volume_1_ The 922Mb PDF is an archival version, so only download the 31Mb PDF, thats all you need to use the book. To review on-line, it the Read Online link, and the Text Only, has had OCR run over it by the Archive, so you can copy and paste the text, but beware, you need to proof read it for OCR errors. Gerry uploads a wide range of items, so he uses a keyword coding, to tie all similar items together on the archive, so when you reach the URL above, there is a listing of keys words, the one to click on is SP-000-001 which gets the other volumes as the other ones keywords are for linking to other members uploads to the archive. To see his other stuff, click on his name as publisher. (Publisher to the archive) or SP-000-001 for his similar stuff to the book below The following is Gerry's standard book description. BTW, Gerry works for a library, is a copyright expert, and even has a copy of a letter from Sams, saying the material is in the public domain, seems 5 years ago, somebody uploaded similar material to other website, was reported to Sams, the letter coming back, was then placed on the same website. Sams Photofact Series; Citizen Band Radio Manual, Volume 1; published in 1961. Published originally by Howard W. Sams & Co., of Indianapolis, Indiana. It was published under the Photofact folder series and is was copyrighted in 1961. There is no copyright renewal for this document so it is Public Domain under Rule 6 of the U.S. Copyright Statutes. The document is 160 pages; Dimensions are 8 1/2" width by 11" height and weight 383grams. Ebook created by Gerard Arthus. This item was from the collection of the Suffolk County Library System (SCLS), 627 North Sunrise Service Road, Bellport, New York 11713.

What to do with giant plasma tvs

I bought 2 50" plasma tvs at an auction for $105 and found out they don't work.  I've identified the error messages and downloaded the service manuals.  But the manuals require I test certain boards and I don't know how to do that.  I can't afford to spend $400-$800 to have a repairman fix them (someone at Justanswer told me that's what the charge will likely be). What can I do with these? Are the parts reusable for something else?

InVision LD 3D Printer Help

A 3D printer has been donated to my classroom for a few months, but we were not given any documentation on the printers use. I have looked online, but it is an older 3D printer and information is lacking. I thought I would see if anyone here had experience and could point me in the right direction. I have been to manufacturer's website but have had little luck since it is a legacy system. I have looked online but I cannot find a manual. If I could find a manual that would help greatly. It is an InVision LD 3D Printer, S/N 05JA1921 Thanks!

Canon XM1 Lost component fix?

Hi there, So I've managed to break my CA910 Compact Power adapter, from what i understand it charges batteries and it also acts as a middle man between the power supply another lead that plugs into the camera to power it from the mains. The DC-905 DC Coupler is now effectively useless and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of a DIY fix that would mean I can start powering my camera from the mains again, below is a copy of the cameras manual (I know it says Canon GL1, ignore it its the same camera!); http://ebookbrowse.com/canon-xm1-manual-pdf-d223774206 If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them, Mikeyfish90210

Kelly's controller slowing down manually

Greetings, I'm looking for a while now but no solution, so wanted to post this question in here. Got a e-bike that can do 90km/u but I need to keep it 45km/u for road legality. But on private property on my job and stuff, don't need the 45km/u so I wish without to connect the controller to my laptop and stuff to make it go faster and slower, twice a day, it would be handy I could let it go with a simple push of a button go slow/fast. It's about this controller: http://kellycontroller.com/keb72601x24v-72v280a6kw-bike-brushless-controller-regen-p-279.html There is software for to download: http://kellycontroller.com/mot/downloads/Kelly%20KBL%20and%20KEB%20User%20Program%20Release%20Setup%20v3.3.zip Manual aswell: http://kellycontroller.com/KEBhelp.php Also, there is a configurable boost switch if I wanted, so maybe through that ... Or an economy function... If only that could be programmed, so I can set my engine power to 100% and the economy to what ever makes it run legal speed. Hope I gave some info, to make things up for what I ment ...

PDF downloads differ from updated content

The problem I face is that the "download" link at the top of my instructables does not download the most recent version of my instructable.  In fact, it appears to download the original version, as seen when it was first published, even after many revisions have been made. I use instructables to host instruction manuals for my kit business. When the instruction manual needs revising, I update the instructable with the necessary information. This is a huge problem, because many customers want to print the instructions from PDF, and because the PDF is not the most recent version of the instructable, so all of these customers have problems assembling my kit. As an example, look at the instructable here: https://www.instructables.com/id/USB-Typewriter/ The "download pdf" link at the top of the page clearly downloads a file with text and pictures totally unlike those in the instructable. Please fix this problem!

Circuit Board Help

I have a Sony hcd-fx10 dvd home theater system, and one day I turned it on and it went into protect mode. I contacted Sony and they said it needs to be serviced. I found a service manual online and took the unit apart. I consider myself handy, so this was not a problem. Upon further investigation and with use of the service manual, i found a brown burn mark on the bottom of the motherboard, which corralates to the protection detection module on the board; which is my prblem. My question is, Can I simply remove this module, or does it need to be replaced with a new one or something similar? I don't know much about circuitboards but have some skill at soldering. Attached are pictures, the best I could get of the small board, showing the actual module on the board and the burn mark on the bottom of the board. Any info would be great. Thanks.
