SOURCE: Record from tape deck to computer via USB and Audacity software

Im not sure what DIN sockets you're trying to describe here, but quite often, you can record from a tape player to a pc by connecting an rca cable to an adaptor; rca to 1/8"(headphone pin) and then plugging that headphone pin in to the microphone input on your computer.

Newair Icemaker is making ice large at top and decreases down to little shape at bottom? What is the problem, please?

Ice on bottom is older ice. When icemaker goes thru defrost cycle, ice melts and gets smaller. New ice that drops on top is newer and bigger. Your only problem is not using enough ice.

Why is that manhole covers are round?

Hi! I'm sure there are a few more reasons why manhole covers are round, but here are some that I can think of: The round shape means that they can't fall into the manhole (like a square could). A round shape also means that it has a smaller surface area, so less material is needed to make them, making them cheaper to produce. Round manhole covers are also easier to move since they can be rolled on the ground.

Where is capacitor in a 28000 but window air conditioner

The outdoor capacitor is mounted usually at the top under the cover. The indoor capacitor is usually inside the electric control box on the right hand side. The indoor capacitor is usually a small square "box" shaped type with 2 or 3 wires attached for the indoor fan motor. The outdoor capacitor is usually a large round cylindrical shape for the compressor and a smaller box shaped capacitor for the fan motor.

What kind of sunglass frame should I choose for my square face?

If you have an equally strong forehead and jaw line that match the sides of your face you have a square face.
The very best frame shape for you is an oval or round shape that will help soften and minimize your jaw line. Look for larger oval or round frames if you have a larger face, and smaller frames if your face is smaller.
Some great frames for your face type include the Dragon Spree, Coach Lindsay, Julbo Colorado and Drus, and the Ralph Lauren 876/S. You should be able to find just the right frame to fit your face and your budget!

My dc7100 has a compact power supply with proprietary 24 pin plug. Pretty sure power supply is non-functional (shorted green to black and fan didn't come on). Is it possible to rewire a conventional ATX...

I just spotted this, hence the late solution. Perhaps this will help someone in the future.

Yes it is possible.

Observe the color code of the insulation of the wires.

1) Orange wires are 3.3 Volts

2) Red wires are 5 Volts

3) Yellow wires are 12 Volts

4) The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire

5) All Black wires are Ground wires. Doesn't matter which Black wire it is, it's a Ground wire.
(It isn't a Common wire. This is DC electricity, not AC)

These are your main voltages, and wires to be concerned with.

Fortunately all HP, (Or any proprietary computer manufacturer in that time period), did, was to change where the wires are placed in the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

They just moved the wires in the socket holes, didn't change the color code.

Solution is,
1) To remove the wires in the ATX power supply, main power cable connector
2) To remove the wires in the proprietary computer's ATX main power cable connector.

BE SURE to make a concise, clear, drawing FIRST, of where the colors of the wires went in the proprietary connector, BEFORE you remove them!)

3) To reinstall the wires into the proprietary connector.
(Again. Following the color code of the wires you removed)

Removing the wires out of the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable connector:

Observe these photos, of a 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector. This procedure can be applied to a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector also. (Or a 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable connector)

(Also gives you information about the color code of the wires)

The middle photo shows you a view of the Front of the connector.
The photo to the right shows you the Back of the connector.

Where the wires go down into the connector is a Socket Hole.
At the end of each wire is a metal pin connector. A Male pin connector.

This metal pin connector is shaped like a tube on the end, and comes up to a square shape as you go up.
The square shape fits the square socket hole.

On one side of the square shape is a Tang. It's part of the square metal shape, and sticks out away from the square shape.
Resembles a barb on a fish hook.

In this crude illustration, let a small L represent the side of the square shape, and this forward slash - / represent the tang.


This is an illustration from a manufacturer that supplies this type of metal Male pin connector,

A needle with the proper thickness so it won't bend, is inserted into the Front side of the socket hole, and is used to depress the Tang.

If you look down into the back of the connector, and into an individual socket hole with a bright light, and a magnifying glass, you will observe that the square socket hole has a small notch in one side.
This is where the tang slides down into.

It isn't easy to see from the front side.

The tang is depressed using the needle from the FRONT of the ATX main power cable connector, and the wire is removed from the Back side of the connector.

The metal pin connector's tube shape only goes up so far, then it turns into a square shape.

The socket hole in the connector is shaped to match. Tube shaped hole at the front of the connector, square shape coming on up to the back of the connector.

The square shape's corners, of the metal pin connector, keep it from coming out of the Front of the ATX main power cable connector.

The tang keeps the metal pin connector from coming out of the Back.
