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. http://www.xbox-modchips.com/wii-tutorials/xcm-wii-dissasembly-guide.htm

Disassembling a PS3 hard drive


This is a futile effort. A hard drive has platters in it that spin at high speed. Those platters spin so fast that the air movement keeps the heads floating mere micrometers from the surface. A dust particle cannot fit between the head and the platter. So when a hard drive is repaired or manufactured, it is done in a clean room to keep all foreign objects like dust, hair moisture out. If you did not take extreme precautions, then trying to repair it wont work even if you do get it to spin again.

How to Take Apart Your Xbox 360?


1. Insert your index and middle finger into the memory slot holes, place your thumbs on the bottom of the Xbox (for leverage), and pull the face plate off with a steady force. It should come right off. 2. Break the Microsoft seal off. (Note that this will void your warranty.) 3. Now, flip the Xbox on its side and take a close look at the holes located on the top and bottom of each side. If you look closely, you can see that some of the holes are filled in. This is because the filled-in holes are keeping the grey plastic pieces on the top and bottom of the Xbox in place. 4. To remove the top and bottom grey pieces, use a small pointed object. Locate a grey plastic tab by peering into the holes, then use your pointed object to carefully push down and lever out the grey top/bottom cover. Both pieces have three tabs/clips per side, with a total of six per piece. To remove the top grey piece, you will have to remove the rubber pad. This is the only rubber pad you will have to remove. 5. With the grey pieces removed, take a close look at the back side of the Xbox. On the right and left side there are small notches that will require closer inspection. You again will need a small screw driver or narrow probe. 6. Using the probe, start on the left side (near power plug socket) and push the catch a bit into the Xbox until it clicks, then use a screw driver to keep the two sides apart. Once the left side is done, start on the right side and do the same thing to the rest of the catches. 7. Once they are all separated, the bottom of the Xbox will lift away. At this point slide it around to the front side and undo the four catches, keeping the case together. 8. Now grab your Torx driver set. You can use a T10 and T8 to do the job. You do not need a T12. 9. Unscrew the six T10 black screws, then use the T10 to unscrew all the silver screws. Finally, unscrew the black screws with your T8 driver . 10. Carefully flip the Xbox back over and remove the DVD button arm assembly to keep it out of your way. You just need to pry it off the black plastic guide. 11. Next, remove the top cover. Watch the DVD button latch. 12. Disconnect the SATA connector and power connector from the DVD drive and lift it out of the case. 13. To remove the white plastic air guide, locate the notch on the top outward side, insert your probe/small screw driver, and leverage the air guide out. It should lift straight out very smoothly. 14. Disconnect the power for the cooling fans. Now, use your probe/screw driver to pry the fan catches out from the metal guard. This will allow you to remove the fan device from the Xbox case. 15. Look at the front of the Xbox on the RF module, and remove the white plastic power button. It is held in place by a clip on the top and bottom. 16. Remove the three screws from the front circuit board (RF module). 17. Once the screws are removed, you will be able to slide the front circuit board off the Xbox with a slight pull. Notice that it is connected on the lower left side. You should now be able to pull the entire circuit board right out of the case with relative ease. Be careful not to touch any exposed circuits. 18. The next step is to carefully lift the motherboard out of the Xbox case. With the motherboard removed, flip it over and locate the two X connectors on the bottom. These are what hold the heat sinks on the processor. You can remove this; just be careful. It takes a little bit of force, which could destroy your Xbox if not applied properly.

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.

Wii console will only play game cube games....my son had 2 wii games jammed in it


Well you can take it apart using special tools you can purchase on e-bay

Then you can take the discs out, but who knows if the drive will work. You can mod the system and get 100 wii games on a hard drive from www.wiihdmods.com which would eliminate the need for a disc drive.

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.

Can't put ANY disc in! White plastic piece blocking my way.


you will have to crack it open again like you did before, when you have the metal case and the top guide cover off you will see 4 little rollers , two on each side, these guide the disk in. .
(with the console front facing you) in th middle you will see the offending white stopper, DONT TRY AND FORCE IT DOWN !!! this will really bugger it up.
the problem is , the system thinks there is still a disc in there , so were gunna trick it o.k ?
to do this you need the system on. for the sake of your eyes put the round white cup with the magnet in it over the lens,magnet side up.
VERY IMPORTANT !!! do not touch anything other than i say.....zap!
turn it on and touch the sensor to load it up (hold the cover over it to locate it exactly)
in front of the right front roller you will see a white stick poking up that has its own little track it can travel around. gently guide that stick back , you should notice the system starting to read and all the rollers will slide open (you may have to help them a little (touch only the rollers)
when there all back , you system thinks theres a disc in , so press the eject sensor (line it up with the cover again)
watch with joy as the white stopper drops down.
good luck
