So this board is from an old AT&T handset phone. I noticed that the dip socket has what looks like these ferrite cores that every pin goes through. Does anyone know why that would be?

This Old House just covered that a few weeks ago, in that particular case the HVAC was oversized (too powerful) and had to be replaced.

Chek on youtube, that's where I saw it.
>>
>>1026123
Yeah ... my house is from 1984 but the HVAC is from 2009
I bought the house last year but the previous owner died and his estate lawyer sold the house
This means I have no information about past problems (which should have had enough time to be seen)
I'll have to check the outside unit and compare to the size of the house and see if that's the case.
Then I'll probably have to get a more powerful fan (if possible).
I like cold and getting a SMALLER system is the last thing I'll do
>>
>>1026122
A frozen evaporator coil means that its getting too cold.

Oversized units that dont get enough airflow over them can do this.

Appropriately sized units with obstructed airflow either in the supply side, or a malfunctioning blower.

Or the unit is low on refrigerant and the low pressure side is too low in pressure.

Call an HVAC guy and tell them your evaporator is freezing over. Common problem

I accidentally spiller some oil based paint down my kitchen sink, the amount that went down probably was no more than 250ml, and I immediately ran the hot water tap for a few minutes.

I noticed the water was slightly slower to go down, and use of a plunger helped that, but now I'm worried about it it potentially making the drain easier to clog in the future, and haven't got a clue how I would remove residual paint from the pipes.

Hey fellas. I posted the other day asking if anyone had experience with PEX. Well after trying to get under the house I've run into a bit of a problem. There's standing water under there that's not draining anywhere. I found pic related that looks pretty much what under my house looks like, except there's a lot more than the little seen here.

The reason I need to get under there is our washing machine isn't draining to the septic due to a break in the line halfway there (which happens to be in the middle of underneath the house). The drain links...

place brick on hose to hold in place
place other end of hose outside at a lower level than water
use wet/dry shop vac to start siphon

use heavy cardboard or light plywood or similar material to make a work path for crawling on

I'm guessing the tricky bit here is finding one.

putting together one of these should be less than $20, just add a hose to intake water, and a hose on the other end to get it far away from house. or buy one for $30.
also, if you HAVE a shop vac, just use that.

If you can figure out where the water is coming from, stop it, and the water should drain...

7seg displays have common anode or common cathode so charlieplexing doesn't work. Control multiple 7-segments like an LED matrix. 7 outputs from your MCU or a shift register to all separate inputs. Turn one on at a time very fast so it looks like a solid light.

Pokemon Go launching in Japan in Mcdonalds.

I would imagine they put pokestops inside all the Mcdonalds so people can sit and play.

Just wondering what is the solution for good GPS indoor for pokemon go?

How do they make the Mcdonalds receive GPS signal inside restaurant where I can sit down and farm the pokestop of that restaurant?

I saw some weekass GPS repeaters on the ebays for cars, which from its advertisement doesnt seem to bridge >3m, and has a signal strength of 1m.

Are there ways to diy a GPS indoor repeater or booster or whatever?

OP has a very good observation, GPS won't work if the signal is blocked by concrete, even with a good GPS receiver it'll need to be a few meters from a window depending on the height of surrounding buildings
But if I was running the project I'd over come this at the software level with pokemon appearing based on free WiFi unique to McDonald's premises

You phone doesn't only use satellites for determining your position. It also uses cell towers. This is why you don't lose location service under a dense canopy of trees as you would with a standalone GPS receiver.

Hello all,

The dishwasher is busted. The other day it wouldn't start a cycle. I opened the door and closed again, and then it would start. That happened a couple times. This morning I couldn't get it to light up or do anything.

Breaker/fuse is fine. Outlet has power.

I took off the control panel, and I'm able to complete a circuit (or something like that) by pretending to latch the door. It will then perform a drain cycle, but no lights come on. The only thing it will do, when I push the latch down, as if I'm closing the door, is drain....

Yep that'll work. You might also be able to get a torch that just directly plugs into your machine with a gas hose that comes off separately which could be more convenient and cheaper. Those lugs are best if you have a machine with permanently wired in electrode holder (stinger) or you have the stinger that came with it and you can't find a torch with a connector that fits. Chucke also did some more videos on scratch start very recently too that might not show up on searches just yet if you wanna check them...

My new job is testing LED lights for a company and I need to get some equipment to run a proper lab. The current power measuring equipment I have is two multi meters, one is a nice amprobe unit and the other is some no name junk. To meet the IES test standards I need units capable of measuring DC V and DC A with 0.1% accuracy with a 95% confidence interval.

So far nothing I've seen is able to meet this level of accuracy, I'm not really an expert in the world of high end test equipment. What do?

Questions that don't deserve their own thread general.

Hi /diy/

I have one similar to pic related. I've managed to get the leaking jammed alkaline battery out. I'd use a mild acid to clean it but its aluminium and that would wreck it.

>Best substance to clean it with???

Sure I could just throw it out but /diy/.

Soap and water and a brush. Unless you are using ph13 strong acid nothing too exciting is going to happen,you.might not even notice it doing anything to the battery gunk. Use a brass of plastic brush on the battery contacts if they ate damaged. The plating might be screwed already though. Bad plating will oxidize and present that as high resistance and make your flashlight dim.

How bad was the damage to the casing? If only minor you can use a mild acid and then rinse it with water.

Then use a mechanical means of abrasion to smooth out the damaged aluminum.

Seems fine. The leak was in the centre away from the end contacts.

Will give it a shot. May get a strip of sand paper down there on a wire driven by a drill if its too bad and give it a spin.

The fights will be on youtube in a day or so.
Or you could torrent it in like 30 minutes once the public trackers have it up.

38 KB,
I wanted make my own set of window switches for my Miata. The stock ones are prone to corrosion, and can't pass much current. I want to replace the switches with some that are sealed, and run them to some relays which can push out more current, giving me faster windows. Most people have done this with toggle switches, which is easy enough, but I want to use something similar to pic related.

However I wouldn't want the ring to illuminate until I flick on my parking/head lights. I can't tell what this rice nigger is telling me in the listing, but I want...

Found a rice nigger with a better listing, LED on its own circuit. Threads done. Cheers anyway!

by the look of pic related, the LED wiring (+/-) is completely separate from the switching mechanism, (NC,NO,C), so the light on the switch will be on regardless of the switch state.

Also, does a Miata have dash lights that go bright when you turn your lights on, or with the aid of a light sensor? You might want to wire the switches up to those instead.

For some clarity, the picture has wired up the LED to only be on when the switch is active, by hooking its positive up to the switch output.

This this a momentary switch too, would it be easy to hook up one of those "extra push" functions that make the window keep going up until it reaches the top?
