Cover will not stay opened

When I open the computer the top (lcd screen) does not stay up. Without support behind it the top would just fall back. Any idea how to repair this?

It sounds like you need new hinges for your computer. I didn't see any for your particular model on eBay which would be the best place to look but you may be able to contact Toshiba and order replacement hinges. To replace the hinges, you will need to remove the bezel from the LCE screen and possibly the power button board, depending on how your particular laptop is put together.

Mess. saying cover open i cant seem to close the top down. the top cover seem to be off track or broken

I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem where I went to print and received an error message saying that the cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to pus it back into place with no luck.

Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.

To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the top cover or the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.

I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.

The lower glove box on my 2009 Rav4 won't close. It feels like something has fallen behind it. How do I remove the glove box door?

I had the same problem with my 2009 RAV4 lower glove box. I removed the box by popping the top front right post and then the top left front post from theside housings by prying them free with my fingers. They pop out easily. I then let the box fall open and while holding it level to the floor, pulled forward, released the piston from the post on the right, and the glove compartment came out without tools. There was a plastic electrical box cover, which came loose behind the glove box, blocking it from closing. I snapped the cover plate back in place and then reversed the glove box removal process. It took a few minutes and I needed no tools.

Battery cover on back is stuck on. no way to get open without breaking it

Press on it with both thumbs in the depressed area and push down and toward the end.  There is a small latch behind the depressed area.  By pushing down as well as toward the end of the unit you should be able to get the latch to release and the cover will slide toward the end.

Hayward Phantom pool cleaner-up/both/down switch replacement

There are 5 screws on the bottom, remove them and hold the cleaner together while turning it right side up. Lift off the top cover (watch the styrofoam inserts that go behind the back wheels), sometimes they fall out when the cover is removed but they're easy to put back in place. This will give you access to both the switch and the round gear box. Lift both out then put the switch on and lower the gear box back into place.

Benq FP731 LCD not start up, only green power lamp

Opening it will not likely solve your problem. Have you tried another monitor on the computer to see if the problem may be with the computer itself?
