    Do this applies to Magnavox 32MD251D/37 TV also? I have removed the screws all around the back cover and it does not come off.

Take out all screws around the outer edge and the smaller screws just above your video conections and dont forget the 6 large screws for the mount in the center. It should just lift off.

How do you remove the back casing?

There are plastic tabs that hold the back in place in order to get the screws to align. Use a flat head screw driver or kithchen knife to pry the tabs apart and slip the cover off.

Cant remove screen seems glued on hp pavillion dv5 1007

ummm, i'd doubt that it is glued unless you had the screen repair previously by a shoddy repair shop. First of all normally the screens are held in place by screws that are hidden by little rubber bumper covers or some type of covering on the plastic that is around the screen. Use a safety pin or small flat head screwdriver to remove the covers and expose the screws. Then use a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws. Once all the screws are removed use your fingers to slide along the inside of the plastic around the screen and pry it loose from the screen.

Changing the LCD lamps

You may follow the below mentioned steps to replace the lamps :

1. Power off the LCD TV. Unplug the AC power cord from the television and the electrical socket or power strip.
2. Locate the plastic or rubber grommets or screw hole covers on the rear edges of the LCD TV. Use an awl or small flat head screwdriver remove the rubber pieces from the screw holes by gently inserting the tool into the hole and prying out the cap. Note that on a few LCD TVs, the grommets or screw hole covers may be on the front face of the unit.
3. Loosen and remove the screws in the holes from which you removed the plastic or rubber grommets. Set the screws aside and keep them together.
4. Remove the plastic shield that protects the input ports on the rear of the TV if the unit has one. To remove the shield, use the awl to pry the plastic tabs loose or remove the retaining screws with the screwdriver.
5.Use the flat head screwdriver or awl to separate the front and rear pieces of the monitor casing. Start on the lower edge of the casing and gently pry the two pieces apart. Work your way around the outer edge of the television and separate the tabs until you can pull the front face off the casing. Remove the front bezel piece from the television.
6. Locate the inverter board below the LCD screen on the TV. The inverter board is small circuit board with wire connector plugs on either side. Disconnect the plug on the right side of the inverter board that leads to the backlight lamp bulb.
7. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws on the edges of the LCD screen that attach it to the rear part of the TV casing. After you remove all of the screws that secure the LCD screen, place the screen face down on a soft towel.
8. Remove the screws that secure the back light lamp in its track. If the wire leading from the back light lamp to the inverter board uses clamps or ties to secure the cable, disconnect or remove them. Remove the backlight lamp from the TV casing.
9. Insert the new backlight lamp into the track and secure with the retaining screws you removed from the old bulb assembly. Run the wire through the clamps or ties as needed to position the wire plug next to the inverter board.
10. Realign the LCD screen with the screw holes in the rear part of the TV casing. Insert the retaining screws and tighten them. Connect the wire plug from the back light lamp to the inverter board.
11. Replace the front part of the TV casing and snap into place. Reinsert the retaining screws in the holes on the rear of the TV and tighten with the Phillips screwdriver. Replace the plastic or rubber grommets and push them into place securely.
12. Reconnect the AC power cord and plug it into the wall socket. Power on the TV and use normally.

I need to replace the LCD screen on my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828. Can you provide step by step guide with photos or a video?

Replacing LCD is not a big deal. Just follow these steps:-

1. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery pack.

2. Locate the rubber screw covers around your laptop screen. There are typically four, but some models may have more.

3. Remove the screw covers. Take care not to lose any. They pop off.

4. Place your fingers between the front bezel (the plastic piece around the LCD screen) and the screen. Gently work your way around the screen to remove the front bezel and expose the screen assembly.

5. Remove the inverter from the screen assembly. It is held on by tape in most models. To disassemble the screen, you will need to either unscrew the screen from its metal holder, or just lift the screen out.

6. Disconnect the wires. One wire goes to the backlight, while the other goes to the video card.

7.Use exact serial no. LCD for exact replacement.

8. Connect the video wire and the backlight wireand affix it using the tape that held the original in place.

9. Put the screen back in place if you need to, and snap the front bezel back on.

10. Screw the front bezel screws back in, and place the screw covers back in place.

Hope they work for you. All the best

In the screen section after remove the front plastic around the LCD you will see some screws holding the LCD display in place. Sometimes these get loose over time.

How to replace latch

The latch is incorporated into the palm rest which you can buy on Ebay for around 25 bucks.

The simplist way to do this is to remove all the bottom case panels to make sure there are no hidden screw holes. Remove the connectors on the wireless card, remove the battery and the three black screws inside the battery compartment. Remove the screw and the dvd drive. Remove all the screws from the bottom case. Turn the laptop back over and remove the power button cover, start prying the cover up on the right side, it will come off as long as you removed the three screws from the battery compartment. Once the cover is off, press on the small indentions around the edge of the keyboard, this will release the keyboard. Release the keyboard cable clipand remove the keyboard. Unplug all the cables from the motherboard and unplug all the flat cables from the palmrest to the motherboard. There are several screws holding the palmrest to the bottom case assembly. Remove these screws and note their location. Once the screws have been removed, start working the palmrest free from the bottom case half, if all screws have been removed will pop apart, lift it from the back and tilt it toward the front and lift the palmrest away.

How do I change the instruments lamps on the clock and heating controls on my Avalon Grande 2002 model thanks gary

Gary, as a general rule of thumb you should be able to look around and find the Phillips head screws then carefully pry the panels loose. The screws can be underneath and some times you have to pull the ash tray or other trays out to see them. Those dash assy are put together in interlocking pieces and held in place by clips. Once you get the cover off the instrument assy you should be able to remove the entire cluster (may be screws holding it in place or clips. Look around for screws and things that look like they "fit" together.Generally the panel over the radio ansd heaters is held in by clips and a flat screw driver covered with a rag (to prevent scratching) is good to remove it. If something seems hard to get off look around for screws.
