How do you remove the plastic plate on the top front of the unit were all the buttons are?

The buttons do not respond. none of them seem to be stuck. the machine works fully through the software, but without the buttons it doesnt work as a stand alone unit. So if i can remove the cover maybe i can fix them.?.?

How can I remove the face plate for the control panel? The buttons that usually stick through the holes in the face plate are now an inch or so behind it and seem not to be firmly attached.

Remove top-cover(3 screws), soap drawer, and 2/3 screws beside the holde for the drawer. Looking from the top, you'll see 3 or 4 plastic "pins", holding the bottom of the panel. Just press this out, and flip the panel upwards. Finito:)

Acer power button jammed

it seems to be a typical box PC, so I would try removing the side panel then look for some snaps on the front, and unsnap the front plastic bezel from the unit. (one side snaps, the other side is tabbed in with some plastic hinges that will just open as you pull the snaps back). once the plastic is off you should have access to the plastics inside the face panel.

How do I remove the inside of old alarm remote to put into the now casing the manufacter sent to me because the remote works just my old casing keeps coming apart

you should see a split on the top of the remote, use a small flat head screw driver (like a jewelers flat head) and carefully insert it in the split and attempt to pry the top (button) side plate away from the case. There are 3 retention clips on each side of the front and back plates that hold them to the gray center plastic.
It's easiest to start from that crack and carefully continue prying along the parameter. Remember, the clips are attached to the black plates, so attempt to pry the gray piece away as you pull the black plate up and away.

Ups no displya

The older versions of the PW9120 UPS systems have a problem with the inside ribbon cable connection. Remove the front plastic cover plate by sticking each of your little fingers to push up the 2 plastic tabs on the underside of the front cover. Pull forward at the bottom of the front cover and carefully tap the top of the plastic cover down to undo the inside plastic tabs. Let the front cover swing on the ribbon cable.
You will need a Torx screwdriver to remove the side cover screws - 2 at the back and 4 on each side. Lift the steel case up and forward. Follow the ribbon cable to the connector on the top PC board of the UPS. If the ribbon cable is loose, push it back up into the connector, scrape off any silicon glue, then apply new silicon glue or black automotive silicone(holds better).
If this does not seem to be the problem, check the ribbon cable at the front cover plate end to see if the plastic cover for the ribbon cable anchor and its 2 screws are still locking it in place.
If you still don't have a display, the top PC board for your UPS is not working. It will have to be replaced and since these units are discontinued you may have to try to get a unit from you local recycler, or you could contact Gruber in the US to see if they will sell you a part.

Error code 1 on schwinn elliptical 418 how do I fix it. I have replace batteries and unplugged unit. Error 1 shows up as soon as I turn unit on.

E1 error seems to indicate that the servo which controls the elliptical resistance is stuck. Here is how I fixed this (without using a "crank puller", which would be quicker by far).

You will need a very short phillips screw driver (snub nose), a long phillips screw driver, an allen key set, and crescent wrench.

- Remove the batteries from the unit.
- Remove the screws from the plastic housing (with the long phillips screw driver) on the left side. Do not forget the phillips screws at the front - they are smaller screws so don't mix them with the others. This will allow the plastic housing to flex and move around, but not come entirely off.
- Using the crescent wrench, remove the nut holding the left pedal to the crank. Carefully note the order of the washers on the crank attachment.
- Using the allen key, remove the little pedal attachment piece on the left crank arm.
- Using the short phillips screw driver, carefully reach inside the plastic housing on the top and remove the four screws holding the plastic plate on the outside of the fly wheel/crank. You will need to rotate the crank wheel to reach each of the four screws in turn on the inside of the case.
- Pull off the plastic cover for the wheel.
- Reinsert batteries and gently help the revealed cable (bottom) retract the magnet plate. In my case, the servo worked fine again after helping it retract the magnet plate that was somehow stuck/wedged.

Reverse steps to re-assemble.

Front panel buttons and remote have stopped working.

Is the favorite channel menu a function that is normally accessed by a button on the remote?

If so, that button on the remote might be stuck.
If this is the case, the menu may at times pop up all by itself and other buttons on the remote and on the TV's front panel may not respond at all (it had happened on my remotes more than once).

Try to clean the remote control (the housing, rubber pad with knobs, circuit board) with ethyl alcohol, when you clean the housing, you should also clean the holes through which the buttons protrude, there might be some dirt that keeps the button stuck.

It may also be a stuck button on the TV front panel, so check these too.

Also, it could be something else, i just wrote the description of a problem and the solution which to me seemed most likely.

Hope you get it fixed.
