Save my flashgun!

[PhotographyFilter] So I have a DF-293-NIK flashgun with a plastic hotshoe mount. Sadly, it's cracked off on one side. Can it be repaired or do I have to buy a new flashgun? Photo here.

How to fix my car horn?

So...many years ago, our car horn stopped working, and my grandma didn't bother to fix it. But now that I drive the car mostly, I need to fix it. The car is a 2000 Ford Focus. When I press the horn on the steering wheel, I hear a click, but no sound. In the past, we used to get a dull sound that only occupants in the car could hear, but that was years ago. Now it's just a click. I checked the horn fuse in the fuse box on the driver's side according to the manual, and the fuse is intact. Do you have any other suggestions for what I should do to fix it? If it can be fixed without having to visit the dealership, that'd be great. Also, keep in my mind, I have very little car knowledge/experience. Thanks in advance!

My hinkPadhas aproblem with i's keyboard.

I just bought a used Thinkpad T61 and the e,t, and space bar keys work intermittently. The keyboard is reasonably clean and nothing is obstructing the keycaps underneath. I have taken out the keyboard and reseated the keyboard connector. Is this just a bad keyboard or should i be worried about something else? (os is linux/ubuntu)

Blackberry Bold Keyboard Quirky Problem - Any Advice?

I just bought a Blackberry Bold 9700, and unlocked it (so there's no warranty). I have used it for about a month or 6 weeks, and following a trip to the beach where it did not get wet, the buttons are not responding properly. Example: the keyguard button on the top left of the phone locks keys but won't unlock keys. The End Call / Power button ends calls and turns off the phone, but won't turn it on. All the keys work but pushing two buttons at once cancels both requests. I've re-installed the software (I think) and left it in rice overnight and both did not help, except for an hour or so when it randomly started working and then stopped again. Do you have any ideas what's wrong with it, and if I am able to fix it myself? (I have a T5 screwdriver if I need to crack it open). Thanks in advance! :)

Unplugging my refrigerator for 24 hours fixed it. Will the fix last?

My side by side refrigerator/freezer stopped cooling, so we unplugged it and went to buy a new one. On a lark I plugged it back in 24 hours later, and now it functions perfectly. Anyone know if the problem is likely to return (or what the problem might be?) I vacuumed the back-bottom compartment where the compressor is located, but there wasn't much dust there so I doubt dust was the problem.
