Re: What have you fixed lately?

Fixed a Zanussi washer/dryer for a neighbour.

it does a diagnostic check when turned on, and because the heater element has gone faulty it won't even let you do a normal wash.
disconnect the wires to the element and it all works as normal.

apart from the dryer, which she never used anyway.

I hope it can stand the heat but fixed for now.
Odds and sods are what garages are for...

Re: What have you fixed lately?

An elderly neighbour's Large LCD TV was rattling like mad on all but minimal volume settings. I tightened some very loose screws holding the back panel on... sorted!

Re: What have you fixed lately?

Well done guys! I just love those simple fixes which make such a lot of difference and little or nothing.

Can't recall the last time a car of ours was in the garage and that's saying something as it's over 26feet long and 10ft wide. So many things being saved for that rainy day...

Re: What have you fixed lately?

At work: Loads of things..

Because of the amount of computers we use, we have special deployment systems to install OSes and Software on them.

My responsibility is the Macintoshes we have. I won't go into details, but one of the packages I am responsible for is Autodesk Maya. This would install via the system but would not activate with our licence server. Tried everything I could. I eventually found that it needed to be "registered" on the system it was running on, and the program used for "registration" was actually being run in a script that was running before the program was installed. Not sure how that happened, but I flipped it around and Maya works now.

My reading glasses - one of the lenses fell out but it's now carefully stuck back in place with super glue.

Re: What have you fixed lately?

Fixed the toaster which was causing the trip to switch. Plumbed in a dishwasher and made a temporary fix for a loo at work to stop it filling until the repair guy came.

Also mended the lid on the coffee jug and will no doubt be repairing or replacing the front inner tubes on my daughters and husbands bikes.
