I struggled with this for hours because I didn't want to break anything. Eventually I decided to just start prying on different parts of the back. The solution I found was to start at the bottom of the case and I used a small screwdriver to pry between the silver part of the case and the black back. I pried the silver part outward and pushed the black part inward and away from the silver part. Eventually one of the locking tabs came loose and I was able to work along the bottom and then the sides to get it apart. I hope this helps.

    I don't have a camera to take pictures at the moment, so I can't supply a photo. If you start at the bottom, you will find 2 tabs slightly toward the center from where the large rubber feet were removed. The tabs are between 3.5 and 4 inches apart all around the back. Once you locate those bottom two, you can just work around the case to find the rest.

Hi, you need to have the cable that goes from the back of the printer into a usb socket on your pc. You should have got two cables with the printer the power cable to supply the printer and another cable that also goes into the printer and the other end usb goes into a slot in your pc that's how it transfers info printer to pc. You should have got an installation printer disk that you have to install into your pc so that you can pull the printer up on your pc and they both recognize each other.

How do I remove the back of my Gateway ZX6971-UR30P. I have a cd stuck in the disc drive and the door won't open.

Have you tried to use a straightened out paper clip to eject the disc. You should see a small hole next to the eject button on the disc drive, just push the paper clip in that and the drive door should open.

How can I remove the back of a gateway all in one Model: ZX6971-UB20P

very carefully! actually i have not worked on allinones. i know that if you have a warranty it may be voided if you don't take it to shop? you can usually go online and ask the 'HOW TO..' web site. Just put in the mfg, model number of pc saying 'how do i take back off of (information)'. if it is too new to have solution, go to Gateway web site and download User Manual which should tell you how to do repairs. it will be in PDF(adobe) format. Just put in model id or serial tag number of your pc and Gateway will show you the downloads, etc.

FYI, there should be a little door on the back that has one or two screws that, when unfastened, expose the memory. But look it up just to be sure
