Without the springs your pretty much screwed. They are kind of important in the grand scheme of things. Without those springs you won't have to worry about reassembling it. If you find them, here is a Wii dissasembly guide. Follow it backwards to reassemble.

How to take apart a wii

Disassembling the Wii<br />Method : Taking it Apart<br /><br />There are plenty of reasons to take apart a wii, whatever your case may be here's a guide to doing it.<br />REQUIRED TOOLS AND ITEMS<br /><br /> * A Nintendo Wii ( of course )<br /> * A Tri-wing screwdriver Size 3 (please save us all the trouble and don't try and use a flathead)<br /> o This NEEDS to have a long shaft. There is a part of the wii that has recessed screws.<br /> * A mini Phillips screwdriver<br /> * A small plate or container ( to hold the screws in )<br /> * A couple pieces of tape ( use the tape to keep track of what screws belong to part of the wii)<br /> * Soft Working surface ( the wii scratches very easily )<br /> * A razor blade and a pair of tweezers will help remove items<br /><br />Step 1. Removing the Battery<br /><br /> <br /> * Remove it and pull the battery tray<br /><br /><br />Step 2. Removing 5 screws /w plastic covers<br /><br /> * When the battery was removed it revealed 1 screw. There are four more hidden underneath plastic stickers and rubber feet. Refer to the picture for their locations<br /> * Peel up the plastic stickers with a razor and pull it away with a tweezers. (place the stickers neatly away from your working area if you plan on putting them back on. )<br /> * Remove the screws ( fix the 5 screws to a single piece of scotch tape and put it in your container. )<br /> * For reference the black screw is the one on the top left, the two longer screws are located on the bottom and the shorter ones on the top.<br /> * This is important to remember because you don't want to put the screws in the wrong holes when reassembling the unit.<br /><br /><br />Step 3. Removing Rubber Feet and removing screws<br /><br /> * Position the wii like in the picture. ( use the notch as a guide )<br /> * There are 2 rubber feet on top and 2 plastic stickers on the bottom that you need to remove. ( do not remove the rubber feet on the bottom. Not necessary )<br /> * Remove the screws and fix them to a second piece of tape.<br /> * Take note that the two black screws go into the faceplate/bottom and the two silver ones go into the top/recessed holes.<br /><br /><br /><br />Step 4. Removing GameCube port covers and screws<br /><br /> * There is a section of the wii that houses the ports for the Gamecube accessories. The 2 covers to this section will flip open and easily detach. If you look there's a sticker on the inside depicting how to remove the covers. They snap off with light pressure. Remove them now.<br /> * Now remove the 3 black screws here and attach them to a 3rd piece of tape. Notice that the screw closest the front/face of the wii is the longest of the 3 screws.<br /><br /><br />Step 5. Removing the face and detaching the cable<br /><br /> * Now position the wii with the face upwards with the dvd tray on the bottom.<br /> * Flip the wii face upwards and away from you SLOWLY and look for the connection marked in the picture.<br /> * Use a flathead of tweezers to pull the WHITE connector out of the socket.<br /> * Set aside the face plate in a safe location.<br /><br />disassemblin the wii image<br /><br /><br /><br />Step 6. Removing the GameCube black cover and screws<br /><br /> * The black covering you saw earlier should lift out easily now. (Although it only goes one way)<br /> * Remove the 4 screws and attach them to a 4th piece of tape and set them aside.<br /> * If the position of the wii is like in the picture then the top screws are tri-wing and the bottoms screws are Phillips. <br /><br /><br /><br /> <br /><br /><br />Step 7. Opening the Wii up and removing 4 screws<br /><br /> * Position the wii with the notch on the bottom right.<br /> * Lift the right side of the wii up and the cover should detach<br /> * Flip the cover over to the left<br /> * The heat sink may or may not come with the cover ( if not just remove it )<br /> * Remove the 4 screws marked in the picture. Fix them to a 5th piece of tape. (although these screws are much different than the rest you've encountered.)<br /><br /><br />Step 8. Disassembling DVDROM drive<br /><br /> * Be extremely careful with this step. Slowly flip the top portion of the drive like in the picture. Notice how short those wires are?<br /> * Remove the White connection first. It's similar to the one earlier on the face of the wii<br /> o TAKE YOUR TIME ON THIS STEP<br /> * Now the thicker cable is removed by flipping the brown plastic tab upwards<br /> o The cable will just slide out now<br /><br />Step 9. Do what you need to do!<br /><br /> * You're all done! Enjoy!<br /> * The marked area is an ideal spot for a modchip<br /><br />o Not that we condone the use of modchips for illegal activities or anything. <br /><br /><br /> i could not upload the pictures with this post so please email me if you need the pictures on the removal of the, hopefully you should be able to understand from the instructions above but if you get stuck just drop me a message on<br /><br />

I was replacing the disc drvie laser and gears and other plastic fell off the side and i need to put it back together

Gears are a little difficult if you dont know where they go. I would purchase another drive working or not and just look at how those gears are placed. If you have about a 1/2 in long white piece it has no big purpose just holds the ribbon for the top lid down.

Can the pronto M61 be pushed without using the motor like a manual wheelchair?

Yes it can. Release the clutch levers on each motor.The levers are located on each side of the chair sticking up through the plastic body, just rear of the drive wheels. The levers are quarter inch round rods with a black rubber boot covering the ends of the rods. The rods are either pushed forward to drive or pulled back to unlock the drive wheels.

Wii would not eject disk so we took it apart and fixed it but while we were doing this a plastic piece fell out of the metal casing over the disk drive now we cant find where it came from so we are now...

what does this "plastic piece" look like??
that said.. I think its the magnetic disc holder (round- white- plastic- fits on a cd...)
, it sits on top of the disc drive in the round hole - it holds the disc to the motor when the disc plays...
You have to put it back in its holder above the disc, it goes on top of the "crossmember" if you put a disc in the drive and set the laser to lift up and grab the disc you will know if you have it right because the "plastic piece" will grab the disc and hold it tight against the motor.
hopefully this solves your problem... comment back if you need more info or if the p[iece isnt what I described and is something totally different.

My ps3 won't take the disc it is like there is a lever in the way what do i do?

did you take the drive apart with a disc in it?

There are 2 little white "bars" that pop up when the disc is inserted most the time this happens when a drive is taken apart with a disc still in it and its not in the ejected state.

if you didnt take it apart then there is prolly a cd in there still and there is a problem ejecting, if you did take it apart here is how to reset everything to the right working state. sorry if its hard to follow.

to get it back to normal you need to reset it, if its under warrenty send it in cause the only way to fix this is by taking apart the ps3 and and the blu ray drive.

ussually this happens when a drive is taken apart with cd in and you remove the loading gears cover(the black piece with the levers and the wheels) off.

when you put this cover back on you need to make sure that the wheels are open all the way --- right wheels up and to the right, ..left wheels up and to the left. When its open like that you can see the gaps where those little white bars fit into just put it back on with it open and the bars in the gaps.

usually your looking at more steps though because the rest of the hinges on the lid wont line up. you can try to put the cover back on and eject and try loading an old or blank cd, blank because if something is off it may scratch it.

see if everything works.

if not you need to re-align everything to be in the ejected state. to do that you have to manually move the long black piece on the left side of the drive(with the cd inserting side facing you) and firmly but carefully push it twards the back of the drive and the laser should lower. it may make a poping noise if you go to far but should be fine its just the piece going to far out and poping off the gear. to test it push the cd guide wheels open and it should raise the laser and you can now lower it using the eject button. if it doesnt and you just hear a spinning gear gently nudge that long black piece on the left that you pulled back earlier towards the center of the drive and it should catch itself. after every thing raises and lowers fine make sure its in the ejected state and put the cover back on. should work now.

Replacing refrigerator door arm

on the bottom of the ice dispenser front cover is 2 slots insert a small screw driver into these slots and carefully pry the cover off (be careful not to scratch your door) one the cover is off there will most likely be a wiring harness that you can unplug and put cover out of your way. next you will need to move the white bracket out of your way there is either 2 thumb latches or 2 screws that seure it. it will not come all the way out so you may need someone to hold it out of the way for you. in the center of both of your levers you will see 1 screw with a cardboard spacer and brass spring BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOOSE THESE! remover screw spacer and spring afte that you should be able to work the levers right on out. the ice lever is a little tricky trying to get it around the ice door but it will come out. btw just use white vinegar to clean hard water stains in the future. thx peyton... also dont forget to unplug the refrig.

PS3 won't take disc

when reassembling bluray player you must take care to activate the side tracks (blackbars) back and forth , there should be very little play in the mechanism! there is also an aluminum wing towards the back underside of the blu ray drive. the wings have nipples at the tips that slide in the blackbars. finally put the top lid on, but dont screw it on tight yet. insert a dvd and then tighten the 5 black screws after smooth enrollment. hope this helps. if you like we can do it for you for $30

Pioneer 301 cd player

I found a fix in another thread. I tried it last night, and it worked. Nothing was broken; a moving plastic piece had just jumped out of its track. Here's the fix:

1. Remove the cover (2 screws on each side & 3 in the back).

2. Find a small white arm (more or less cylindrical, about 1" diameter, & about 3/4" long) and a longer (4-5"?) thin black arm in the center of the unit. These parts load/unload CDs to/from the playing area. You should see that a little knob on the white piece has jumped out of its track in the black piece.

3. Carefully put the knob on the white piece back in its track in the black piece. That should do it.
