Wiring two voltmeters

18 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey guys, I'm putting two alternators in my truck, charging two individual batteries. I'm going to have two voltmeters. One to each battery. My question is can I connect the ground sides of the voltmeters to a switch and then to ground. I want one switch to turn the voltmeters on and off. I know I can do it with relays but this would be easier. Will it affect the volt readings? Any input is appreciated.

May have destroyed a monitor...

So I'm working on converting a Nintendo Cabinet into a Mame Machine & I I had everything working. Modded the Monitor to VGA, it worked fine no problems. THen I was just doing some simple rearrangeing inside & decided to connect the monitor directly into a surge protector instead of what it was plugged into before. Turns out it was plugged into a power supply & I may have ruined it. I plugged in the surge protector, there were spraks int he outlet so I thought I simply had a bad outlet. SO I tried another one the sparks continued & the monitor sounded like it came on. SO I reconnected the monitor to the power supply turned it on & then when I turn the PC on all it displays is blue. so how fix?

What's involved with programming a new garage door remote. Girlfriend lost the garage door remote and it was the only one we had. Just wondering if it's possible to buy a new one and program it to the door without the original? Are there any brands or models that allow this?

Acer S5200

I'm seeing one of these on ebay and the seller is putting it under spares or repairs. It turns itself off after a minute of turning on. Now, I'm thinking that it is just a case of overheating and the seller has not mentioned any kind of cleaning (over 240 hours on). The problem is that I have no experience of using a projector and I could be oversimplifying it. Any advice?

Hey /diy/ I'm trying to figure out if ill be able to get spdif out of a surface pro, it has a Mini displayport which does carry audio, I know there's adapters for displayport to HDMI and that work fine on this device and there are also HDMI to spdif adapters. So my question is I am unable to find any displayport to spdif adapter is there any reason other then demand that his does not exist and will putting a DP to HDMI and a HDMI to spdif connected together work with no issues? Also does anyone know if the surface pros displayport is DP++ as I am not sure if I will need an active or passive adapter to go to go from DP to HDMI

Hi I don't know if this is the right place for this. So I unscrewed my light switch panel in my living room and unhooked the wires connected to the light switch then tried putting the panel back on and a spark came out and the lights and tv in the living room went off. Can anyone help or explain what happened?

I must be stupid. Surely its not hard to change a light bulb. Just moved into my new place and smashed one of the bulbs in the first night trying to swat a gnat. Not a big problem normally, but I cant for the life in me work out how to remove this cunt lightbulb. No combination of twisting, unscrewing, pushing pulling or pinching is working. Im sure the answer is simple, in a smack-myself-for-not-realising sort of way, but obviously im suddenly a retard. Pic related is the broken bulb. help me diy

I have no tools but a bunch of crap laying around, I want to sell 3d printed hydroponic underground bunker home kit plans, this is super secret so please don't steal the idea I have a free way to generate limitless light in the bunker by converting radiation from americium into light but I cant tell you about it here because the nsa will kill me for it because they don't want the world to know how easy it is. Also you can use solar panels from the light to power the home but 220 v should be wired instead of 110 because it can send more energy over smaller wires. The hydroponics system will be mostly automated by arduous but right now I need to use my parallel port to control the gpio's because I don't have an arduou yet or money to buy one because employment rates in america suck. I don't really have any skills at this yet but I know it will be an awesome business, if you want to do some of the work for me I can offer you some stocks in it.
