I picked up this broken psp that was listed as not charging. At first i wired a tp4056 circuit to the battery terminals but it would not charge. then i read sony batteries have a chip inside so i wired an 18650 cell to the board. i have a charger on the way but it won't power on so is it worth doing anything with? or what should i do next

>>927043
buy a new battery? even if the old one still have some juice left you will end up needing new one.
If it still doesn't charge, check up the charging circuit on board - starting from the connector and up until the battery lead.
>>
>>927054
the led on the tp4056 board went blue so indicated the psp battery had full charge but it read almost 0v on meter and the same when I opened it up and measured the lithium cells directly. Is there any way to test it out before i spend more money on it? I soldered the 18650 to two pins directly without the board in the picture but it would not power on either.
>>
so you saing wiring the PSP directly to a power supply doesent works either?
I'm not sure but shit might have resistance measurements like the apple crap has that stops them charging from "non-genuine" chargers...
if that's not the case, try measuring values from the battery to the power button.
In the end, the shitty button might went bad from the previous nigger's greasy fingers

I am attempting to construct a multifunction desk. I found this design online and would not really care to drop the 10k+ for it. I would also find it fun to build myself. I just cannot seem to figure out from the pictures how to go about making the mechanism. Any ideas?

Whats the best (and cheapest) way to plaster up sand walls to make sure they don't cave in?

I'm constructing an underground room at the moment and need to decide on a method. I've though about using concrete, but would it stick and if I mix it with sand would it be thick enough to smear onto the walls?

I was told by my father I should build a frame inside using 2x4s and hang chickenwire off them, then mash cement into the wire and against the wall.

ITT how do i build my own tomb

>>925965
How deep underground and how large would you want your new grave to be? If it's really sand, nothing would help to keep it from caving in after a heavier rain (ok, something would - digging the site up and constructing a proper shelter before covering the structure with sand again).
>>
There are special formulations of concrete used in such a scenario, usually referred to as shockrete but chances are you don't have the means of producing it or pumping it. You're probably better off using timber supports but unless you know what you're doing (i.e. old timey mining techniques) there's a good chance you'll kill yourself anyway

Hey /diy/,

I am trying to learn how a radio works.

I want to cut off that component on the top left. Does anybody know what it is and whether that will influence radio reception? I desoldered the plug as I am solely working with batteries for my project.

Help would be appreciated.

One more thing. The plug was originally soldered to this same component. I desoldered it from it. I wonder whether this is some kind of transformer? Since I desoldered the plug maybe I don't actually need it anymore.
>>
>>929378
Is this bait?

That's what powers the rest of the radio. You cut it off and it won't work anymore.

If this isn't bait, then you need to slow down and learn some basic electronics first, you have no idea what you're doing. Start at the beginning, not in the middle.

that's indecipherable, the engine as in the fan or the compressor?
>>
>>929310
The compressor may continue running for a period after you switch it off, especially if you quickly turn it on and then off again.

This is to prevent damage to the compressor as it requires oil to circulate while it is running.

Similarly, the exhaust fan may continue running for a few seconds/minutes after it is switched off to prevent overheating.

How long is the 'engine' continuing to run after you switch it off?
>>
>>929310
does it eventually turn off and does the outside unit cease to run? If so then your set. Heat pumps slowly let off and let on the electricity to reduce the startup amperage which plays in part to why they are energy efficient.

Sure anon, why not.
>>
if it's your intention to apply power between the black/red bunch and the white bunch, then that is definitely not the correct way. you have to consider that the sensor part is a switch, so it has a black and white for power, then a switched red to power the bulb.

so the red from the sensor should go to the black from the lamp, and only only there. the neutral whites are OK as is. anyway, this is my recollection from wiring one a year or so ago, so i'm not 100% sure.

Hi /diy/

So this is the first winter in my new house and with temperatures dipping below zero, I'm starting to accrue frost on the inside of my windows. My inside temp is 72 and humidity is around 20%.

Is there an easy way to fix this before it saturated the wood around the glass?

"new house"? Your window is single plane and there is gap in the frame to let air in otherwise it cannot be this serious, this is a fucked up window install, you will need to replace the entire frame if you ever hope to fix this, no amount of plastic sheeting will protect you from single plane glass plus a non-standard shit frame

Visually check krausen and bubbling of the airlock. Apart from that just wait and check the gravity at the end. It's not like there's much you can do about it during primary fermentation. Well, apart from maybe pitching some more yeast if fermentation doesn't want to start.

Hi /diy/.

I've been trying to get some traction with this on Google, but all I can find is lists and housewives 'upcycling' things, which is not quite what I'm going for.

I have a LOT of vodka bottles. Mostly 1.75L Sveda bottles. So they're big, heavy, indented on the sides.

Can anyone think of more practical uses for these? I have at least a dozen, and I'll probably have a thirteenth by Monday.

cool design, one thing you might want to look out for is the wood sucking up the dye too much and then cause leakage along the fibres of the wood at the edges of your design.

You definitely want to grind the wood properly to ensure a good seal. Then go for a proper masking tape (test some on a more insignificant piece of wood, before you use it on your precious box)

Not sure what to do from here. I covered some furniture with plastic sheets and then went to town sanding the drywall mud on the ceiling.

I opened a window and put a big fan in it to blow it out but that didn't do anything.

The carpet is getting replaced but I don't know how to get the plastic off without burying the furniture.

Any tricks from here?

For a cool sciencey solution that might not work, rub the plastic with a microfiber cloth until it becomes statically charged (if it zaps you, you have to start again). That way the dust will stick to the plastic when you move it and hopefully not become airborne.

For a more down to earth solution, get a spraybottle of water and spray lightly mist the plastic. Wet dust will stick together and not create a huge plume when you agitate it.
