Craftsman Garage Door Photo Eye/Cell Sensor Problems

   This post pertains to anyone having issues with their Craftsman, Chamberlain, Liftmaster, or Sears automatic garage door openers due to apparent photo sensor problems.  I myself have a Craftsman automatic opener with sensors that look very much like the ones in the photo below.  However, one noticeable difference is where the wires connect to the sensor casing. (circled in red)
 
   On my original sensors, there is a white rectangular connector that slides onto 2 pins that stick out of the back of each sensor. Aside from that, everything else appears to be identical to the replacement Liftmaster Sensors Part # 41A4373A

   I had gone through 3 or so years where my garage door would work perfectly fine all summer right up until the weather turned cold.  EVERY year I would spend an enormous amount of time adjusting these sensors in an attempt to align them "better".  At the end of the day they simply would not work, which meant I would have to walk back into the house and hold the garage door button until the door closed completely

   This year I was determined to win this battle.  No more ridiculous button pushing from the warm interior of my vehicle in hopes that the sensors would give in and just let the obnoxious door close. I had taken a little different approach this year and did my research.  Here I come to find that this is a very common problem when dealing with these sensors and in most cases the cause is simply that the sensors are going bad and not because the became misaligned.  So, I figured I would bite the bullet and purchase some new sensors.  

From what I understand, if your current sensors have a green light on both the sending unit and receiving unit, then you would want to replace them with the same (41A4373A) part number I had listed above. If your sensors have a green light on one and amber/red light on the other, then you would want to purchase part # 41A5034 In either case, please do your research to make certain that these will work with your unit before purchasing.
  
   In the end I was able to purchase my set of sensors from Amazon.com for approx. $22.00 shipped.  The installation took about 5-10 minutes and only required some wire cutters and a pair of pliers.  After the installation was complete, I found that the new sensors were extremely easy to line up and I also noticed the light on the receiver sensor was much brighter than I had ever noticed before with the old set.  This gave me some faith that it was getting a good signal and would work without a hitch.  I put my hand in front of the receiver sensor and confirmed that the light turned off to verify it was functioning properly in case the door encountered an obstruction. I then tested out the garage door with the button in the house to make sure it went down without me having to stir up any 4-letter words.

   Finally, I tapped the garage door button in the house then ran into the garage and tossed a box under the door and voila, the door auto reversed as the design intended. If I would have know that some $20 dollar sensors and 10 minutes of my time is all it would have taken to get my door working properly in the winter months, I would have spent the money the first year I noticed the problem.  

   I hope this post gives you insight on how to fix this problem and maybe I can save you the frustration of having to jump out of your car while nearing the end of your driveway because your door is not operating correctly.

You live and you learn!  ;)

Lionel New York Central Flyer Train Set - No Squealing Brakes *Update*

  Growing up I really did not play with model railroad sets all that much. However, as time goes on I noticed that I really do enjoy the craftsmanship that goes into these model trains.  Taking a trip to a few hobby shops with my Dad during the past few weeks made me realize that I could browse the model railroad section of a hobby shop for hours.  I just love the look of the trains chugging along on their suspended tracks up near the ceiling as well as browsing through all of the different rolling stock that is available.

  I figured since Christmas is almost here and I have a 2 year old that I think would love to see a train circling the Christmas tree, why not invest in a RTR (Ready-to-Run) set.  After some digging around and comparing prices, the model that was most appealing to me was the New York Central Flyer (pic above). Model number 6-30156.  The few main reasons why I chose this model were because it included the TrainSounds system with the tender and the locomotive was equipped with upgraded rods/linkages on the wheels which look fantastic compared to other sets in this price range. Check out the pic below.
  Lastly, I found a hobby shop online that was selling these sets brand new for more than $76 less than what I could find at any local hobby shop.  Keep in mind when I purchased online, I did not have to pay tax, plus shipping was free which made the deal even better.  Below I will list all of the features taken right off of Lionel's website so you will have an idea of what was included with this particular set.
 FEATURES
     Set Includes:
  • 0-8-0 steam locomotive and tender
  • Boxcar,
  • Gondola with canisters
  • Helicopter launch car
  • Work caboose
  • Three straight FasTrack track sections, eight curved FasTrack track sections, a FasTrack terminal section, a FasTrack uncoupling section CW-80 Transformer
  • Smoke fluid
Locomotive Features:
  • Transformer controlled forward, neutral, and
  • reverse operation
  • TrainSounds sound system with steam chuffing, steam whistle, bell, squealing brakes, and operator-controlled multi-part crew dialog
  • Operating headlight
  • Puffing smoke unit
  • Die-cast operating coupler on front of
  • locomotive
  • Operating coupler on rear of tender
  • Powerful maintenance-free motor
  • Traction tires
  • Die-cast metal locomotive body and frame
  • Upgraded drive rod assembly
  • Silver metal rims on wheels
  • Engineer and fireman figures
Rolling Stock Features:
  • Die-cast metal sprung trucks and operating couplers
  • Non-sprung die-cast metal trucks on caboose
  • Opening doors on boxcar
  • Four "Pacemaker" canisters on gondola
  • Operating helicopter flies from helicopter launch car
  • Interior illumination in work caboose
  Upon setting up the layout, I really did not run into any problems however I did notice that the manual was lacking in some areas and could have included a bit more technical information.  In any case, everything went together without a hitch and ran fairly smoothly.  The testing of the TrainSounds system was pretty straightforward as there is not much required other than pressing the common "whistle" and "bell" buttons on the transformer to get the desired effect. Where I did noticed a problem however was when trying to get the "squealing brakes" sound to function.  I had read the manual multiple times and looked online for hints however nothing I was doing seemed to initiate this particular sound. While reading through various forums I found that I was not the only one with this issue but most people suggested to simply forget about it because the sound itself was a bit annoying.  Be that as it may, I still wanted to confirm whether or not my train set was operating 100% as intended.  I figure if I paid for something, it should work as described whether or not it is has the potential of being "annoying".

  From what I had gathered online, this "squealing brake" sound is extremley hard to initiate for whatever reason. At the same time, a few people mentioned that when you try to lower the speed of the train to activate this sound, you need to do so extremely quickly. In the manual it states that you need to have the sound volume set at its highest setting and you need to run the train at high speed for 10 seconds or more then drop the throttle down at least 50% or more to activate the squealing brakes sound. Since I read the suggestions in the online forums, I have only been able to activate this particular sound maybe 2-3 times total while trying over and over. For me to get this to work the first time I actually removed most of the rolling stock cars except for 2 and then ran the train at full speed for the recommended time and dropped the throttle as fast as I could and low and behold, I heard the squealing brake sound. I was happy to hear the sound and know that everything was working normally.  I then added all my cars back to the track and a few minutes later I was able to get the squealing brake sound to activate again.

*Updated 1/3/2012*
I recently had taken my train set down and noticed that when I removed some cars from the track, it appeared to make the squealing brakes sound much easier to activate.  I am guessing this has something to do with the overall amount of voltage being drawn.  So if you are experiencing this same issue, try to remove a few cars from the set and try again.

  At this point I do not really care to use the sound however in the back of my mind it does give me some peace to know that it DOES actually work. I seem to have the best results by flicking the throttle down really fast and then raise it back up just enough so that the tender has power to play the sound.  I can't stress enough how fast you must flick the throttle down to get this to work either. While looking at the light on the front of the engine when attempting this, it does appear as though I am cutting almost all power to the track at first because the front engine light does appear to almost go completely dark. Either way, I hope my explanation helps someone who encountered this same problem so you too can have the peace of mind that yes, your train set is functioning at 100% as well.

Overall I am extremley satisfied with this train set as it provides a lot of great features that I simply was not able to find included with most other sets in the same price range.  I know my kids will love this addition to our Christmas tree for years to come.





Merry Christmas and Happy Railroading!!

How to control an iPod from an Android device

Recently I have been playing with some old stereo equipment and started thinking: "It would be great to be able to control my iPod remotely so that I could change the songs playing on my stereo from across the house".  It then dawned on me that their had to be some software out there to remotely control my iPod from a PC.  While doing some digging around I came across Veency (pronounced VNC).  This is a service that can be installed on a jailbroken iPod which acts as a VNC server.  All you need is an active wifi connection and you are all set.  Afterward I wanted to take it a step further so that I was not tethered to my desktop computer to be able to adjust my music.  So I turned towards my Toshiba Thrive tablet for a solution.  Low and behold there is a great little vnc viewer called "android-vnc-viewer" which would allow me to accomplish exactly what I wanted.  Below I will walk you through the steps I had taken to do this.

1. Jailbreak your iPod/iPad etc. (You will have to Google this if it has not already been done)

2. Open the 'Cydia'











3. Select the search option and look for "veency"












4. Select "Veency" from the list then touch "Install" in the top right corner. (If you receive an error right after you click "Install", reboot your iPod and try again.  You may need to run a quick update in Cydia before you can download the package properly)














5. The installation will complete and then you will be prompted to restart your iPod afterwards.  Give it a good 5 minutes to restart, if it appears to hang on a loading screen then press and hold the power button to shut it off.  Lastly, power the iPod back on.

6. After your iPod starts back up, simply connect to your wifi network and locate the IP address that was assigned to the iPod.  You can get the IP address from "Settings - General - Network - Wi-Fi".  Then press the blue ">" arrow to the right of the SSID (wifi network) to which you are connected to.

7. Here is where you will locate your IP address. Write it down or remember it for when you go to connect  to the iPod using VNC from another device.











8.  Also, to avoid having to acknowledge a prompt on the iPod each and every time you want to connect with VNC, go into "Settings - Veency" on the iPod and simply set a VNC password. (Remember this for later)

9. Your iPod should now be ready to go and you should have everything you need to connect from another device.

10.  On your Android phone/tablet, go to the Android Market and install the vnc viewer called "android-vnc-viewer".

11. Once installed, go ahead and locate the android VNC app and start it up.









11. You will then be prompted with a screen similar to the one in the photo below. On this screen you will need to create a new connection and type in the iPod's IP address you had found in Step 7.  The default VNC port number of 5900 is correct.  You can also type in the VNC password which you had defined in Step 8.  If you do not type it in here, you will simply be prompted for it when you try to connect.











12. Once you are certain your settings are correct, click "Connect".

13. Voila! You should now be able to see your iPod screen  on your Android device.

This is a view of my Toshiba Thrive while connected to the iPod.  You can see that it does not blow up to full screen however it is still very functional.
Here is my tablet and iPod side by side.  As you can see, I am playing around with the Pandora online radio app on my iPod by sending commands through my tablet.







I hope you find this posting useful and please leave any comments or criticisms you may have below.

Custom HTPC Streaming 1080p with XBMC

 I have owned 3 original XBox's for some time now."Why three?" you may ask. Well upon the discovery of XBMC, I knew I had to have a XBox connected to every TV in the house.  On top of that, with a bit of searching you could locate an original XBox on craigslist.org for 20-40 dollars. The only problem with this XBox solution today is that it is unable to stream HD (High-def) content due to hardware limitations.

To get you up to speed, XBMC is a FREE application that you can run from a hacked original XBox that allows you to seamlessly stream video, music and photos to your TV from any network enabled PC in your house.  It also allows you to launch video game emulators, various plug-ins, as well as even check the weather.  In my eyes, no other media center software can compare.

Now with the rising popularity of HD formatted movies, I knew I would soon need to replace at least one of my original XBox's with a machine that could handle streaming 1080p videos over the network.  I had worked on many solutions in the past however the price point was simply way too high for what I needed to accomplish.....until now.  With the production of the Mini-ITX computer motherboards, it is easier than ever to cram a powerful PC into small form factor computer case.  Some of which now look exactly like TV set-top boxes which blend right into your TV's device cabinet.

The great thing about XBMC is that it runs on Linux, Windows and Apple TV devices and of course it costs nothing!  Now if you would like to see some screen shots of exactly what I am talking about, head on over to http://xbmc.org/skins/ and check out some of the available skins for XBMC.  For those of you out there that own a projector type movie room and need a nice application to display your content, I think this could be the solution for you.  In total my HTPC (Home Theater PC) build cost around $270 which in my eyes is not bad for a powerful small form factor PC that can dual boot with the XBMC application.  Keep in mind, this is your regular PC so not only can you run the XBMC application, you can also grab a wireless keyboard and mouse to browse the web, play games and check email on your TV/Projector as well.

Below I am going to list out the parts I had purchased to build my XBMC HTPC:
1)  ASRock A330ION Intel Atom 330 PBGA437 NVIDIA MCP7A-ION Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo - This is a great motherboard that does in fact use a fan, however it is very quiet and no louder than your normal set-top box. I also liked the connectivity options I had with this motherboard which includes
 HDMI, DVI, VGA, 1Gb NIC, Optical audio just to name a few.
2) G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-8500CL7D-2GBNQ- This memory was also a great buy, fast and I have had zero issues with it.
3) Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVT 250GB 5400 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive - I purchased this drive because it was on sale however 250GB is much more than is required for this application.  This drive is also quiet, fast and has been very reliable.
4) IN WIN BQ656.AD80TBL Black Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 80W Power Supply - This was one of the coolest mini cases I had found for the price. It is solid black with a nice glossy front and has 2 USB ports, audio jacks and the power button right on the top. I believe this item may now be discontinued however this fit all my components perfect without any problems and also leaves room for a slim line Blu-ray/DVD drive if I want to add one down the road.
5) AVS Gear HA-IR01SV Infrared Certified MCE VISTA Remote Control - Here is a remote control I purchased which after some tweaking, works 100% perfect with XBMC on Linux and Windows. The IR receiver is also so small that I was actually was able to modify it and mount it inside my HTPC case.  This way I could keep everything compact and within the mini case.

After building the machine which took literally 20 minutes, I jumped on over to http://xbmc.org/download/ to grab the "Live" version of XBMC to test out my new system.  Once I verified that everything was operational, I simply booted the Live XBMC CD again and selected the option to install it to my hard drive.  After the install was complete, I tweaked the system to my liking and now had a HD streaming machine to which I could browse family photos or even stream music to. I honestly could not be happier with this setup!

A few days ago I had reconfigured the system to dual boot with the Linux version of XBMC Live and Windows 7.  Now I can browse the net, check email and play games on top of all the pre-existing XBMC functionality as well.

I am considering adding a nice bluetooth mini keyboard with a built-in touchpad to complete the setup. Here is a link to the solution I am considering.  This will allow me to get rid of the clunky full-size keyboard and stop from having to fight with a mouse on the couch cushions.

I hope this post was informative and please leave your comments below regarding any HTPC setups that you have put together.

Television Service Menu Codes

Have you ever needed to access the service menu on your TV for something as simple as enabling a HDMI port? You take the time to call the manufacturer just to hear a bunch of garbage about how you need to "call a qualified service technician for that". Well, I and many others have been in this same situation which is sort of lame since you OWN the TV in the first place and should be able to enable/disable or screw up whatever settings you want. Note: If you do not know what you are doing in the service menu, you can screw up your TV. In any case, here are a list of service menu codes/procedures so YOU too can enable your HDMI ports.

PANASONIC
Panasonic TV's after 1996 can be set to "Serviceman Mode" with the
following remote control sequence:

-select the SET-UP icon and select CABLE mode.
-select the TIMER icon and set the SLEEP timer for 30 minutes.
-press the ACTION button twice to get out of the menus.
-change to channel 124.
-adjust the volume to minimum (0).
-Hit the VOL down button on the TV itself (not on
the remote) and a red "CHK" should appear in the upper corner.
-press the ACTION and VOLUME DOWN buttons (again, on the
TV, not the remote) you will toggle between AGING and SERVICEMAN modes.

Select Serviceman mode. The POWER button on the remote control will
select one of the five Serviceman Adjustment modes.

The modes are:

B - Serviceman VCJ SUB Adjustments. These include sub-tint,
sub-color, sub-brightness, sub-contrast, colorkiller/ABL/gamma,
audio and video adjustment, and vertical size.

C - Serviceman VCJ Cut-off adjustments. These include Red, Green
and Blue cut-off, red and blue drive, automatic fine tuning
(AFT), RF AGC (RF gain control), horizontal center, beam limit,
etc.

S - Serviceman Options Adjustments. These involce the PIP and
clock.

M - Serviceman MTS (Stereo/SAP) adjustments.

CHK - the mode you first entered. Normal picture and sound, lets
you check things over and still have a hotkey into the
service menu.

There is one more adjustment that isn't in the five modes, it's
global. When in either the yellow or red CHK mode, you can press
RECALL on the remote control to enter the purity field check mode.
This lets you select a pure white, red, green, or blue screen. A
good thing to walk away from if you just want to temporarily freak
out the floor manager, but it will be fixed as soon as the TV is
turned off. Oh well.

To get out of Serviceman mode, press ACTION and POWER on the
receiver simultaneously for at least 2 seconds. The TV will momentarily
shut off and then comes back on.

1993 Mazda Rx7 - Rotary Engine Rebuild - Parts List

Intro - Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Parts List - Final

Below I have listed practically every part I had ordered for the rebuild of my 13B engine as well as any additional parts that were upgraded/replaced as well. All of the "xxxx-xx-xxx" part numbers towards the top are Mazda specific part numbers which can of course be found at your local dealership or online if you take the time to look. Minus the extras listed at the bottom (transmission, radiator, vacuum line, motor mounts, oil pan brace, etc.), the engine rebuild alone cost around $2,000. Since I did the job myself and saved on labor costs, I was able to put that savings back into the car with reliability mods/upgrades as well as replace additional items like brittle coolant/air hoses, gaskets, oil injector lines, etc. These items are typically overlooked when doing just a core rebuild however I can be certain that if a part was bad or had potential for failure, then it was replaced.
