Question about BenQ Joybook 5000 Notebook

1 Answer

Not a 5000 but a 2100E ?

18 months old and motherboard has failed. Anyone have instructions on what screws you undo to pull apart, piece by piece ? I don't want to undo everything and see what happens.

    I think you may be right about the 'dead' but, that's why I want to investigate it myself. I left it doing a defrag and when I check it was all 'out' - no lights, not even power (usually a green led). Guessed it went into sleep mode so I unplugged everything, took battery out for 30 min, put back in but no start up. Attached power supply and no green light. Tested Power supply and 19.37V as it should. Guessed battery went open circuit but took it too BenQ authorised repairer (only appointed 2 months ago so they are still guessing !) and they tell me battery is OK, and it's the motherboard. Because everything is 'onboard', they just replaced the whole thing but I'm still waiting for a quote as they don't even have the Price Lists yet !
    As for experience - I'm not a techno, but I did upgrade the hard disk and replaced the CD-ROM to Slot DVD-RW in my iBook G3 800 12", so I have no fear as long as I can see some procedural instructions.

You may find dissasembly guides on the internet. However I don't recomand you to dissasemble your laptop unless you have some experience with these kind of things. Also, from the years of computer service I can tell you that when laptops fail it is pretty serious. Naturally they have a lot of protections and failsafe mechanisms in case of internal failure. Can you explain your problem in detail? Maybe the motherboard isn't that ..dead.

    The motherboard is probably to have a broken charger/converter unit, or the power on signal circuits. In here we find these relative easy to fix, sorry for the motherboard replacement you had. In my experience I can tell you a general rule, when it;s all dead, no lights no power no anithing, it's the most simple to fix. Maybe even a single faulty resistance. Sorry for you again.

The mouse was apparently dropped and as a result the wheel is loose and not always perform as it should. i need to take the unit apart. i am looking for a manual

I don't think you will find a manual for fixing a mouse. There are screws in the bottom (may be hidden under little rubber feet). Undo the screws and pull the two halves of the mouse apart.

Washer won't spin.

From Howtomendit: key point I missed was that you need to pull the motor apart after you have taken it out of the machine before you can get access to the screws holding the brushes in. (ie: unscrew the four bolts). Not as difficult or scary as it looked!

please read thro first.
first unplug it, pull it out so you have some work space, take off back plate, remove belt undo (should be white rectangle plastic block with wire attached), remove green+yellow wire undo bolts which hold motor to drum, gently ease out motor (please be aware of sharp edges), run screwdriver down 1 side of motor so you put it back together same way you took it apart, unscrew 4 bolts that hold motor together take top bit of dont loose spacer ring, place to 1 side, remove middle comutator the end the brushes are touching will need a proper clean wd40 maybe wipe clean with cloth so its not dull let dry, undo carbon brushes, take plate off also clean then clean what they were attached to when dry replace in reverse order gently (with new brushes) then replace back on machine plug back in and test by running spin program found at bottom of dail if i have my mod/num right let it get to full spin watch motor if it sparks an looks like blackpool illuminations motors no good will need new 1 sorry.

Door hinge

Firstly if you haven't already done so remove the door and the old Hinge. You can do this by undoing the screws at the back that hold the top of the machine on and remove the top of machine. Now you will see a piece on the inside where the hinge screws into. Hold onto this piece and undo the screws from the outside. Carefully remove the inside piece (because I dropped mine inside and it took me an age to get it out!!). Now undo the screws on the door and pull it apart. Replace the old hinge and screw door back together. Now holding the inside piece back in original position screw the hinge and back onto the machine. (You might need someone to hold the door in place for makes it much easier). Finally screw the top of the machine back on.

LG KG 800 slide

it is a pain to open these. 1. remove the battery & undo the 4 black screws. LG use a thread locking compound (loctite) on all the screws so they will be a **** to undo. 2.Prise the back cover off. 3. Pop apart the 2 rectangular connectors at the top of the keypad circuit board. 4. Lift the top board slightly & pop apart the ribbon/flex cable from the top board. The big silver bit comes off with the flex cable. There is a small bit of adhesive on this so be gentle. 5. undo the 6 silver screws holding the slide mechanism together & lift the slide off over the flex cable. 6. pop the 2 screw covers off the top of the phone then undo the 6 screws holding the front cover on. 7. pop the flex cable off. then the touch pad connector. then the camera lens connector. Gently pull the screen circuit board out of the front cover. Careful as sometimes the speaker is glued in place. 8. Unclip the lcd connector & gently remove the small battery looking thing (it's got red & blue wires on it) from the back of the lcd panel. It's glued on. Have fun. It took me ages to work this out.
