Answer to: iPhone 3G water damage won't turn on, but apple logo appearsthe battery may have been depleted beyond its lower limit, shorted by the water. I'm *guessing* that there is enough juice to begin the boot process ( this is good, the phone is likely ok ) but not enough to complete the process. Seems like your next step is to try another battery. I saw the same thing with a dead battery in my 1G phone. It would begin to boot ( apple logo ) but would never get any further until I hooked up a more powerful battery.
Answer to: How to use a Hard Drive AdapterKeep in mind you have (2) problems when you disconnect a drive and try to attach it to another system: 1) getting the data bus wired correctly 2) powering up the drive so the platters spin and the heads move. You must understand whether your adapter covers only number 1) above. But, if you already have a complete enclosure, it should provide both a data path and power to the drive you insert. Does your enclosure have only a USB cable coming from it? I would guess that it also has some power going to it as well. Otherwise you will only be able to operate on rather small amount of power provided by your computer's USB port, insufficient to spin up a drive. The thing to understand here is that you should be making (2) connections to the drive itself, 1 for data, 1 for power. This may not necessarily mean that there are 2 plugs - there are connectors/drives where data and power are combined into a single strip of pins. Then it is up to whatever OS is on the computer you are using as the repository for your recove...
Answer to: Trying to change spokes and the back gears are in the wayhey Vic - you must remove those gears in order to get at the holes in the rim on the drive side. 1) take off the wheel 2) look at the inner area just between the smallest gear and the axle of the wheel. You will see one of a number of things which will reveal to you what sort of tool you need ( called a freewheel removal tool ) to get that thing off. 3) go to the bike shop and buy the correct freewheel removal tool or tell the guy you have 3 bucks if he can pop that freewheel off for you. 4) if you get the tool, note that it has a hole in the center. remove the quickrelease (QR), thread its axle through the hole in the tool, press the tool into place on the wheel and tighten the QR until it holds the tool tight to the freewheel. 5) get a big wrench 6) with the wheel clamped between your legs, drive side on your right, wrench in the reverse direction that the wheel spins when you are riding it. This can be really, really tough if it has been on there a while. 7) use a little light duty grease when you put the ...
