My Jamis Sequel has this oblong hole on the bottom of the seat tube. It has a removable plastic cover. Is this is to install an internal dropper post? It has external cable routing on the downtube, so is it meant to pop out here and then continue externally to the lever? #Bicycling #Bike #BikeRepair #Biking #Cycling #Repair
As-tu déjà eu un appareil préféré qui soudainement a cessé de fonctionner ? Si tu te demandes ce qu’est exactement un Repair Café, ne t’inquiète pas, nous sommes là pour te l’expliquer.
Unfortunately, the screen is in very bad shape. It seems like the top layer is coming off. Any tips on restoring it are very much appreciated.
Do you think I could just stick a screen protector on top to smoothen the surface? It would bubble, wouldn't it? 🤔

Another photo restoration experiment, using AI and some manual retouching…

I want my shit #repairable.
Doesn't mean the manufacturer is responsible if I f**k up unless the manufacturer decided to work against me and my interests on my property!
Next ham radio task was to rework the sad mag mount 10m whip antenna on top of junker commute car.
Checked connections, tighten bolts, cleaned corrosion of wavy parts. Used a beeping ohmmeter to make sure I had no opens or shorts in the wrong places.
Then up on top of the car, clunk!
Tomorrow, stupid early, I will put the Elecraft KX3 in the car and I will see who I can hear on HF.
Maybe someone somewhere!
working on its own, however the controller never makes use of it. Given I've checked all the other components I have to assume it's one of the ICs or the weird 4-legged thing on the top right, but I want to be sure. Since the I couldn't find schematics of this specific board… can someone give me a hint how to proceed from this point on? Also what that 4-legged thing on the top right could be (it says "DA OK"). #electronics #soldering #repair #playstation #sony #pcb
Trying to catch up a bit on radio things.
I recrimped another PowerPole connector onto the fused line from my car's battery, so I could get the VHF mobile rig working again.
Then I tightened the 2m/70cm antenna in the mag mount, stuck some polyethylene sheet on the magnet, using spray adhesive, and slapped it all back on top of the roof.
Plastic will photodegrade in the UV of the sunlight. But it will be hidden under the mount.
Local repeater hears my signal.
Fellow Thinkpad owners, my T440s screen is slowly disintegrating. Not only do I have bottom backlight issues, today a bright green vertical line appeared on the screen (it seems blue + red pixels are dead/disconnected).
If I decide to replace the screen, what are my options for home repair? Do I need to get the exact screen that I already have, or can I go for an "upgrade" from a later model, e.g. get a fancy 1080p OLED instead of this old ghosting TN panel?
So our front door (which is on the side of the house away from the road, but that is another story) wouldn't stay shut as the handles wouldn't return after being used to open the door. Obviously an internal spring had failed but anyone's guess as to if I had a suitable spare. Turns out I did and we can now, once again, keep the cats, rain and the approaching cold outside. Result. #fix #repair
Romans, raac, maintenance, longevity and self repairing bacteria in concrete.
This one has got it all.
I got some help in 3D printing a replacement chain guard for a bike I'm fixing up. I think the printing was cost-effective versus shipping-and-handling. It helped that this person was skilled enough to easily adjust as needed the parameterized model from thingiverse.
This bike is cleaning up nicely. Last thing to do is tighten the rear bearing cones to fix some play, and maybe check the grease while I'm at it.

Got an old Android phone - like, really old, probably a Sony Xperia Z1 - that doesn't has a Recovery yet, got no wifi connection and is locked with a PIN. Interesting.
Might need a Nethunter device to bruteforce into this one (the previous owner is okay with it, found in attic). Although it got one of those physical camera buttons, I could swear there was an exploit to get full access on Android 4 and/or 5... 🤔 #hacking #electronics #android #smartphone #repair #Kali #Sony

Samstags morgens und man möchte sich ein Toast zubereiten...
Ein typischer Fehler bei Toastern: Der Toast, welcher durch einen Hebel in den Toaster heruntergedrückt wird, hält nicht mehr unten. Meist ist das Problem ein verbrannter Kontakt. Ein einfaches Reinigen schafft Abhilfe.
Hier geht es zur Reparatur:

Another #repaircafe yesterday. In Rugby this time. A quiet one, but a good one for sharing the #repair message as we had several people wander in and ask what was going on. They all left happy. Normally I limit myself to taking photos, answering questions, finding tools and parts for fellow repairs and PAT tests, but with only 4 #fixers I had to repair too.

Technical advice solicited! The clasp on this much-loved bag has started to pop out because of continual abrasion. Please recommend a way to #repair it, bearing in mind that I have no #beading or #leatherwork or #jewellery tools.
Edit: from the responses, my pictures didn’t make it clear: the ball goes all the way through the loop and spins freely. When new, the ball was too big to come back out the loop; now it does because of wear.

Twice a year I produce datasets from community #repair #data for publishing as #OpenData They get downloaded by some pretty impressive institutions and a lot of students.

Use an eraser and 99%ISO did not help either.

Hey fedi I need like some ASAP help for my laptop repair
I took apart the laptop, but the battery was double sided adhesive to the frame. The adhesive stuck to the old battery and the new one doesn't have any. What do I need to replace the adhesive or what is a good solution until I can get a proper solution
pictures in reply. Also any tips for cleaning as well this is my first repair
J'ai un Genesis CDA 20 2020 avec des jantes d'origine (Shining DB-31 32H) et des pneus d'origine (700x37C) mais j'aimerais y mettre des pneus plus fins qui conviendraient mieux à mon utilisation (route de campagne parfois cabossée + un peu de chemin gravier calcaire pour sortir de chez moi)
Comment puis-je savoir jusqu'à quelle section je peux descendre avec ma configuration (fourche et jantes) ?
One of those serendipitous moments at today's Lambeth Repair Café. I was explaining to a lady that we had no-one on hand to fix her 100 year old violin when a chap walked in behind her to volunteer as a fixer of musical instruments, specialising in guitars. His brother fixes violins. 💫 #RepairCafe #repair #London
Do you have a box of random cables off in the garage or wherever? I post here now to provide you with useful anecdotal evidence. If anyone tries to hassle you for keeping these "useless" things.. you can say you once heard legend of when a guy used one of these cables to fix a laptop. #computer #repair #legend
Our LG oven touchpad has cracked and broken, and now we get F-3 errors all the time. The control board replacement is no longer manufactured, so I'm wondering about replacing just the plastic overlay, and maybe cleaning the actual buttons behind. Anyone replaced this sort of plastic on their appliances? What material would work, and where could I get it?
Disassembly of a 1971 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. Sadly a tiny plastic gear broke and I can't find a replacement. I'll be parting this out, hopefully helping someone else and restoring their own Lettera 32.
I missed this last month: France has launched an initiative to reduce textile waste by paying people to repair their clothes instead of throwing them out.
Starting October, people will be able to claim between €6 and €25 of the cost of mending clothes and shoes. The money will come from a €154 million fund and is meant to support businesses in offering more apparel repair services.
Cool stuff! 🧵🪡

I need replacement spring steel clips that hold a grease filter in an oven range hood, but the parts aren't made any more.
Model "j v324 003ad range hood" from GE.
The hooks are sort of J shaped, about an inch long, and 3 of them provide pressure to hold the filter in place. I have one remaining. See pics.
Any help to find some of these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Repairs soon! Snagged my shirt on the back of a chair and tore it the first day I went to wear it. Relatively thin cotton lawn from Spoonflower.
