Thanks to Corey Johnson, Gale Brewer, Jerrold Nadler, DSNY, HK's Commons, Manhattan SWAB, and everyone who attended the Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle Fair.

Rocco suspects bad or worn belts on the VCR/DVD Recorders. He and Emily also reseat the belt on a cassette recorder. Jack rewires an AC adapter and examine a pair of wonky headphones. Emily and Irwin work on a travel iron. Brandon's hybrid amp may have a bad capacitor. The LG LCD TV shows no bad caps but possibly a bad logic board. Roma cleans out the battery corrosion on several flashlights. Rich gets the film camera to wind film properly. David restores CD player functionality.

Many thanks to the Sullivan Street Bakery and their awesome bread! D10

Looking for someone handy in tech stuff who can help me. I think there's a piece of a headphone jack stuck in my laptop cause I can't plug anything except for the Aux cord with the broken tip.

I'm not really confident in my tech or DIY skills and would like someone to help me remove it. I can't afford a repair cost, but I'd really like to be able to hear audio from the laptop speakers again and just be able to plug in other headphones and whatnot.

Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
