Latch for the Film door broke
This is so tedious a job that I would not try it myself unless I was adept in doing this right.Unless the camera costs a lot to start with, I would just get another SLR. I believe the cost in repairing it depending on model and the size, will be about $200. I say this because from experience, I had a $250 camera 20 years ago and the latch broke on mine and he said it would not be worth it to fix it. Unfortunately, it was way out of warranty.

Driver for target australia film scanner f100
I own the Target AU F100 film scanner and have the original CD. It has a Driver directory on it, which includes DriverInstaller app and 32 and 64 bit subdirectories. It installed recently on my Win 10 64 bit PC and worked ok, despite being Win XP/Vista software vintage 2010.

My handle broke on my Solidex Model VT-90HQ tripod
As far as I know Solidex is out of business and since most of there parts are not standard to the other major manufacturers you sould either buy a new tripod or search for the same (exact same) model on ebay or craigs list to find the same model and use it for parts.

Sony DPF-d72n digital photo frame will not switch
My Sony DPF-D72N frame is a few years old. Today I unplugged it (fool!) and plugged it back in. The screen would flash on and off to black. Power button light would turn on and off. After plugging and unplugging it a few times, it would not turn on at all.
I tested the power supply, and it showed 5V. I was about to throw the frame away, but on a whim, I tested a 2nd power supply. It worked!
So even though the power supply looked like it was working, it was only without a load on it.
Replace your power supply!
I happened to have a spare 5V 2A power supply, so I just chopped the end of the dead power supply and soldered it onto the new one.
And we all lived happily ever after.
