How do I open the case of a Philips 107S 17" CRT Monitor?

Power switch is broken and I need to get the case apart to replace it. Case is at the held together by two screws at the bottom and appears to have internal fixing at the top. Most monitors have four screws with two on the sides near the top hidden behind snap off covers

    I have sorted the problem myself. There were two clips at the top of the case just visible through the holes in the case. I opened them by pushing the clips down with a small screwdriver. I have not replaced the power switch as parts are not available at a sensible price. The power button has a low voltage switch behind it and I can push this with a pencil or something similar.

Hello, I have an e-system 4213 laptop with a wobbly power connection. It probably just needs a bit of solder. I've removed the battery, disc, and every visible screw, but I can't get the machine to...


The top half and bottom half of the case may be clipped together besides being held together with screws.
There may be additional screws in the battery compartment or the DVD/CD drive slot.
Try separating both halves by pulling it apart near the battery opening or the DVD/CD drive slot.

Time Required: 10 to 15 minutes.
Tools needed: Precision tools, Small philips screwdriver, Case opening tool or a plastic stick, or your fingernails.
Difficulty: Easy

Step 1. Remove the back cover, battery and sim card.

Step 2. Are you replacing the screen? Or are you looking into the keys or the mainboard?

If you wish to get to the display Go to step 3.

If you wish to get to the keys and the mainboard Go to step 4.


Getting to the display.

Step 3.
To replace the display, unscrew two Philips screws from the bottom of the display, they are under two soft tabs that you have to remove from on top of them.

Step 3.1. Use your fingernails or case opening tool to open the display cover.

Begin from the back and work towards the top, open the back and the sides, do not force open the front its held in place from there and you need to pull the plastic cover off looking at the picture below to the left

Step 3.2. After the cover is off, you get to the back of the display, on the top you have a few speakers etc.

Step 3.3. From the bottom release the connector by carefully pulling the board upwards.

Step 3.4. From the top, use a flat screwdriver to get the speakers out of their slots so the circuit board with the display comes off.

Step 3.5. The display is now free from the cover, you can remove it from the case.

Getting to the mainboard and keys.
Step 4. With the back cover, battery and sim card out. On the back of the phone, there 4 Philips screws. Marked with red dots.

Step 4.1. With the 4 small screws out, start using the case opener tool or your fingernails to release the plastic casing from the back of the phone. It is held in place similarly as the top of the phone in step 3. Begin from the sides and the bottom of the phone, the top is held in place and won't open until the sides and the bottom are lose, then you can disconnect the top part.

Step 4.2. As you release the back cover, on the side the up and down plastic key drops out remember to replace it properly when you assemble the phone.

Step 4.3. Disconnect the display cable, the mainboard is held in place by plastic clips on the top, carefully release the mainboard, you may break off a clip or two from the case, if that happens, no worries. The screws will still hold the casing together. the area is again marked in red.

By now you should have the phone completely disassembled / taken apart.

We are done.

Assemble in reverse order. Total 6 screws in this phone, 2 on display 4 on case. Held in place mostly by plastic clips.

Thank you for reading, I hope this has helped you.

I have a compaq laptop and my cooling fan stopped workin how do i get to it?


You will have to open the case. This is normally done by removing the plastic strip above the keyboard, removing the keyboard, and then opening the case.
Most laptops have screws on the bottom of the case. In some models, the keyboard screws have a little picture of a keyboard next to them. Eventually, you will probably have to remove all the bottom screws. The keyboard will have screws at the top of it, so they are removed from the top as well as the bottom.
The case is held together with plastic tabs. Once all the screws are out, you can start in one corner and using a plastic or wooden flat utensil (actually a cuticle tool is good if it's plastic or wood) and gently pry the case apart. Then you can get to the fan. It's probably attached to a heat sink which cools the CPU, so you will need to use heat sink compound when putting it back together.

I need to replace the power supply plug in my hp ze2000 laptop, i have all of the screws out of the bottom of the computer but can not get the case to open. How do I do so?


First of all remove all your components ie. RAM, hard drive, battery, CD/DVD drive etc. Sometimes there are screws located in the area where these components are located that secures the top and bottom halves of the case.
I suggest that as you remove the screws from the bottom of the case you take a note where the came from as some of the screws are different lengths.
There may be s strip panel between the top of the keyboard and the LCD screen, remove this first, it will be clipped in place and held with screws from the bottom of the laptop.
Next the keyboard should removed and keyboard cable.
Look closely for screws hidden behind plastic stick on covers, you need to use a sharp thin blade to lift off these covers to reveal the screws behind the covers.
The top and bottom halves of the case is usually held in place with plactic clips, start at an opening and carefully pull apart until a clip releases and the work along that edge to release more clips. Continue along each edge until you separate the case.
The LCD screen is usually secured with screws on the back edge of the laptop and possible with screws near the edge of the motherboard. Take care to disconnect the video connector.
The motherboard needs to be removed from the bottom half of the case so you can access the power connector.
Take careful note where you remove each screw as you need to put them back in reverse order.

Best of luck, have fun.

The prong that the battery charger plugs onto is loose/broken, how do i take the top off the laptop to do so?


Remove the keyboard first, there may be screws holding the case together under the keyboard.
Make sure you first remove all the battery and drives etc. there are usually screws in these areas that secure the case together.
The top and bottom parts of the case are held together by plastic clips. The best way to open the case is to start at an opening and gently spread apart the case until the clip releases and then continue along that edge and gradualy continue working along the other edges of the case.

Broken electric 3-hole punch


There are two phillips screws in the bottom. Once they are removed, the top and bottom of the case are held together with clips molded into the case. Take a wide flat screwdriver and place it in the seam and gently pry it apart. Might want to start on the back in case you ****** up the plastic.

How to open PS2 slim console? Uncrewed all but still cannot open.


When you have all of the screws out of the case of the system, flip the system right side up and separate the top portion from the bottom, starting the separation from the rear of the system. The top and bottom clip together in the front of the system by the memory card ports, but if you start to separate the case from the rear, it should pop apart easily. You don't have to use alot of force to get the top to come apart from the bottom. Make sure though that before attempting to reassemble the case, check the power button to see if it is seated properly in the little holders on the bottom portion of the case. Then put the top back on, and gently press the top and bottom together to clip the two halves together. Throw the screws back in and you should be good to go!
