To siryn79:

we also received a broken Graven600 speaker. the exterior plastic part of the on off switch was broken internally so that it wouldn't actually turn the real switch on. it can be a very simple fix (if that is what is wrong with yours). all you need is a small blade pocket knife and small phillips screwdriver. I made this video so you can see what I did. I hope you can get yours working

After an amazingly dreadful day, I arrived home last night to a better than expected Bears over Cowboys.




Likely Woot Crap:
1. Broken plastic hand holding a bowl of some sort (put in trash when my son tried to chew on sharp, broken plastic edges)
2. A switch-spork (very cool)
Maybe Crap, but useful:
1. Foil paper for gift wrapping
2. Gel pens
3. Cheap sunglasses
Still crap, but kind of cool:
1. USB Fridge (We have both a soda and beer fridge at work already, so don’t know who will use)
2. Bear Coasters (Might put in our conference room at work)
3. Kids 10 woot shirt
Might be crap, but stuff that is usable
1. Pair of Ogio Golf Pants that actually fit (34w x 32l). They also show that I need to lose a few pounds, because I usually wear 32x32.
2. Refurbished Razer Electra Headset
Bag
1. Black Duffel Bag

Overall it was a good bag and much better than expected.

@jthebird1977 - wow, you are a very nice and smart human being! i will try this when i get home. but whether this works for me or not, i really appreciate that you made this video!

i thought about posting this tip on the braven 600 thread from august, but not sure what the woot etiquette is on this type of thing. no one on that thread thought of this fix even though many had this exact problem.

incidentally.. does "last wooter to woot" meant that i was the last person who snagged a bag oo crap? i thought i was so fast, too =/

@jthebird1977, you are an angel! thank you again!! i didn't have a pocket knife so i used a paring knife which was a little scary and i scratched the unit up a bit.. but it did the trick =) i can't believe i was about to put this thing in the trash can yesterday!

It looks like that port is supposed to be soldered onto the circuit board. I think you would have start by removing all the screws and the speaker/board assembly from the case to work on it. I've never soldered anything onto a circuit board so i don't know how difficult it would be. Sorry it wasn't just the power switch for you. Good Luck!

Here is my 16.9 lbs of crap. Not sure if I got any of of the woot staffer's crap, but at least it was random.



Coudln't find the HoMedics ParaSpa Premier Paraffin Bath on woot anywhere so I am wondering if this was a woot staffer's that they never opened. Maybe a wedding gift? I actually am having a hard time finding this exact model (PAR-400) on the internet so I think it hasn't been sold for a long time. Here is the one link I found that says it is worth $84.50.

Thanks woot!

Mine came on Wednesday, one day early and I received:

25x bags of Texas air
1 k10 shirt, "Slow Death"
1 k10 shirt, "The Fallen"
1 sm. roll of what I believe to be bags for dog excrement
1 pink usb 2.0 card reader, without a cord and possibly taped shut
1 non-functioning mini pair of chattering vampire teeth
1 roll of packing tape
1 functioning amazon basics wireless mouse
1 pair of Little Hotties hand warmers
1 National Geographic Angry Birds Space book
1 fancy flocked curtain panel
1 crab bag

While, honestly, I'm disappointed that I didn't get anything super-weird or with a woot certificate of authenticity, I did want a wireless mouse, loved the crow shirt when it originally printed and my mother loves packing tape, so this is a total winner in my book. Also, when I realized that the book is about space, not Angry Birds, I was happier (it's still going to Half Price or a coworker, though, unless it belonged to someone who will come here and tell me an interesting story about it).

PS You will get a picture when I find a space clean enough in which to take it.

CRAP indeed!



16x Texas air

1x QFX CS14USBT Bluetooth Multimedia Speaker (Open box. Broke when I tried to plug it in. I then was able to fix it.woohoo!) Sold for $25 on woot

2x "W" hand towels

1x alligator or crocodile (I STILL don't know the difference) hat

1x crab bag

1x Kids size 10 "Camisa de los Muertos" shirt

1x " Iron on T-shirt Transfers for hand coloring" book from 1976! ( I think I win for oldest crap!)

1x "Taming the Paper Tiger. Organizing the paper in your life" book (this ones from 1989. Complete with sticky notes marking pages 70, 103 and 197)

No staff notes explaining this crap! I have to admit, I'm disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I'm lucky to win Bunch of Clipping#39;s at all and yes, they are suppose to be crap. But my last one was soooo amazing, I was expecting the awesomeness to continue. Oh well. Til next time...

I am SO JEALOUS! Is that a Dover book or a Sunset? The font is so familiar, but I can't quite place it and looking it up would be cheating.
