• I have a VCR/DVD combo that skips and freezes up on every single DVD, and the VCR part is also eating tapes. What do I need to do about it?

    I've had for at least 8-10 years. It was a Christmas present. Is the unit dying out? Do I need to replace it? Where can I find a new Magnavox VCR/DVD combo player?

    I've had for at least 8-10 years. It was a Christmas present. Is the unit dying out? Do I need to replace it? Where can I find a new Magnavox VCR/DVD combo player? This is getting frustrating because I can't enjoy a movie. The DVD part has been freezing and skipping on and off for the last two to three years. A month ago, the VCR part started eating every tape that goes in (one tape was completely ruined as a result; a couple of other tapes were close calls). And now, the freezing and skipping on the DVD part is worse. Resetting the unit usually fixes the problem. But this time, it fixed nothing.

  • Is there such a thing as a USB to electrical outlet/wall plug in cord?

    This would be very handy when my electric scooter batteries dies when I m out and about. An eBay search turned up nothing. Just gave me a bunch of wall chargers. Am I using the wrong term? Are power banks not strong enough to handle a wall plug?

    Best answer: the charger is x Volts ...y Amperes( maximum allowed current ) ...on pulling the current above this, it will get hot so may will fry.
    the battery is z Volts t Amperes ( maximum charging current ) .... on charging the current above this, the battery will be damaged....risk of explosion!
    1-if x is more than z, the resulting current, if more than y , damages the charger ...if more than t, damages the battery.... or explode it.
    2- if x is less than z, there is no current so no charging.

    on cellphone the temperature of battery is controled if it pulls more current, the conroller will switch off the battery.... to prevent explosion ...

    now check the parameters.

  • Did this Timex have radium?

    I had this Timex diver a while back and I threw it away after I read the horror stories about radium on dials.. This watch I determined to be from the 70s I could shine my light on it and it would glow for about 10-15 seconds before it fades. Does the radium/phosphor mix glow after it is exposed to light?... show more
