MDude broken things #1

Today on MDude's Livejournal, I'm going to tell you about one of my broken things! This time, it's my printer.

This all-in-one printer/scanner/copier has been around for a while, long enough to not have a USB cable at least. I got it hooked up, but my computer dosen't seem like it's connected to it. I'm not quite sure what's wrong, but I'm thinking the cable for it is broken, since it's a pretty thick cable, and it has to run under this realy thin slit under the back of the desk. Also, the cable barely even reached from the printer to the computer, so I'm not even sure if it able to plug in all the way. Anyway, I'm hoping I can have it replaced with a seperate printer and scanner, since they're easier to take care of than an all-in-one. I'm also hoping that the back of this desk gets sawed out, since it's just a thin panel of wood that dosen't need to be there. And on to the next item.

This is a digital vido camera, and probably like the third one to ever exist. Maybe the second or first. The problem is that even iwth fresh batteries, it won't turn on. I'm thinking it has an internal battery or sometihng that wore out, since it seemed like it decharged pretty quickly when it did work. That's annoying, since it has a worse resolution than my webcam, but it had a mircophone in it, so I would be able to take videos with sound without having to take a seperate device to record sound, and the only portable thing I have to do that is my labtop. Unless I could find that kid's tape recorder toy, tape the sound in that, then play it back into the microphone jack in the computer, but that would be a hassle to. So yeah, I'll be looking for another thing like this. Oh, and also, it has a touch screen, and it comes with this telescoping pointer for FINE POINTING ACTION.
