I just did it an hour ago. It took about 20 minutes to figure it out.
I laid the monitor on a furniture pad to keep from scratching the face.
1. Remove the three screws from the bottom of the back.
2. Insert a thin bladed screwdriver in the bottom slot near one of the bottom corners. The back is held in place by some clever latches that were designed to snap together, never to unsnap again. I work a pair of screwdrivers around the bottom and then up the sides and finally got it loose at the top.
3. Carefully lift the small clip that holds the small ribbon cable connecting the "buttons" to the main unit.
4. I assume you're trying to get to the capacitors inside so, carefully disconnect the small cables by squeezing the plug to release the clip.
5. Remove all of those nice little screws that hold the metal parts to the back.

Good luck! By the way, I use an empty egg container (with the compartments numbered) to place the small parts in while I'm disassembling. When I'm ready to rebuild, I assemble the parts in the reverse order that I put them in the container.

2005 Chevrolet Opera 5 hatchback Hatch won't open with key or key fob no inside release What's the secret?

the sectret is that a clip on your lock mechanism has come away or broken.
There is normally a small hatchway or opening that can be accessed so a lever can be inserted in an emergeny to open the door.
If this is not the case you will have to either try and remove the inner trim panel [without causing damage] or, remove licence plate and drill a small hole adjacent to the lock so a lever or similar can be used to open it.

I have 2 gateway t series laptops..... they both have a black sreen ...have to use external moniters

If you are able to use an external monitor then the video card in the laptop is working perfectly. The monitors built in however have failed. The most common situation is that the lamps burnt out, but it is possible that the wire that connects to the main board has been damaged from opening and closing the lid.
You could search the internet for a replacement monitor, but I would recommend one that has the casing and everything. It is extremely troublesome to remove the casing and change out just the panel.
Often you can find an identical model laptop on ebay that has a working monitor but other component failure and then you can either swap your components or just the monitors, whichever is easiest.

My FPD2275W LCD Monitor will only lit up solid white light. I have turned it off, unplugged it and everything else I can think of. It didn't how any signs of a problem yesterday, just all the sudden today...

Solid white meas the T-CON board is not getting the signals or 5vdc feeding it from the logic board or it has blown fuse.
Check all the caps in the power supply and on the logic board first, be warning, this case is real hard to open and MUST BE REAL CAREFULE WHEN SEPARATING THE FRONT BEZEL FOR THE BACK CASE!

Opening an older HP Scanjet 3300C case ??

I recently picked up a SJ 3300Cse and have the same issue.

On mine, on the top of the scanner near the hinges there are two small white rubber peices that are very well camoflaged. If you remove them you'll see the two screws to open the hinge side of the case.

Good Luck.

you REALLY dove into an issue here.
Several things that happen {depending on the version of PS2 you have}
The door may not be closing enough to signal the sensor, one way to solve this is add more weight to the door, I have added a few cd cases to the top and this solved it. However if this doesnt work then its an issue inside with 2 secret Sony buttons that need reset or the cap placed back on.
This will get into an issue of you opening it up.
here is a link to the instructions.

Hope this helps :0)

try the latter first before diving into opening that thing.
