Front and back of most LCDs shap together. Must be gently pryed apart.
Some KDS LCDs that have screws on the edge need to slide the front cover up a half inch to release from the back cover.

How do I get this fan remote to work again I changed the battery but I can't get it to turn on the ceiling fan


Just about all handheld remotes have a carbon pad under the button that makes contact with the bare "traces" on the printed circuit board within the remote. Over time, the use and handling of these remotes gets the carbon pads remarkably dirty from the oils on our hands so the remotes are either difficult, unreliable or quit altogether. Simple solution is to take the remote apart and clean with plain rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Remove the batteries, and look for screws that hold the two pieces together. Manufacturers like to hide screws under labels so remember to look there. In today's world alot of things just snap together and are easy to unsnap once you get started. If this is the case, use a small flat screwdriver to begin prying the top and bottom halves apart, be patient and try not to break the clips, once you get one to pop, work your way around the remote until it separates. Remove the rubber button pad and turn it over to see the carbon pads, inspect the circuit board and note where the carbon pads touch the bare traces, if these look gummy and oily this is probably your problem. Use the alcohol and q-tips to clean all the carbon pads and traces, alcohol won't harm anything so use it to your hearts content. Dry with a soft lint free type cloth and re-assemble, install the batteries, and test the remote.

Good luck

How dose the case come apart


usually with LCD monitors there aren't many screws holding them together, instead they are held together with plastic tabs. You need to remove any screws holding it together (if any) and you need to pull the case open with a butter knife or a special pry tool (flat head screwdriver wouldn't be a good choice because it leaves more marks). you need to insert the knife or whatever your using and pretty much pull it apart gently, this isn't easy to do and you can risk ruining the whole screen if your too aggressive when opening it. unless your trying to fix the monitor, you shouldn't open it because it usually will look like **** afterwards.

Filter


If this one is like mine (and it looks just like it except my Lasko doesn't have the wood grain on the front) there is no filter inside. It is just a fan inside a plastic case.

If you want to clean it, you can try blowing it out with compressed air if you have a powerful enough compressor. If you really want to clean it, you will have to take it apart and that isn't as simple as it sounds if your unit is just like mine.

There are a bunch of screws on the back, which isn't too bad except one of them is a triangle headed "security screw" that is probably there to keep you from taking it apart. I looked at several stores and couldn't find a screwdriver to fit the stupid thing. So what I did was that I took out the rest of the screws, pried the case open as far as I could with my hands and cut the support that the last screw was attached to from inside with a strong pair of wire cutters.

I figured that when I put it back together, I wouldn't miss that one screw and I wouldn't want to deal with a triangle head screw every time I took it apart in the future anyway.

Once the case is apart, I found the best way to clean the blades is to remove the whole blade assembly and just wash the thing out in the tub and let it dry thoroughly before putting it back in. There's a metal brace (Held on by two screws) at the top the top spindle goes into and there's a single screw on the shaft of the motor that hold the bottom spindle in. It probably sounds more complicated than it is. It's pretty simple when you see it.

If you put it back together right, you almost can't do anything wrong. You might want to take a damp cloth and wipe down the interior of the case and the shrouds that surround the blades as well. If you've had it a while, they'll be dirty. You'll see/feel the dirt wherever it is. This thing is a pretty simple machine and is easy to clean once you figure it out. I put a few drops of oil on the top spindle when I put mine back together.

How to replace high/low beam switch on 2004 Ford Focus LX?


Should be fairly easy. Make sure to disconnect the positive battery cable. Remove the cover from around the column behind the steering wheel. Should take a star driver to remove the screws holding the cover together. Once the screws are removed pop the cover apart and you will see the multifunction switch on the column, should have two to three screws holding it to the column remove the screws and it should come out pretty easy replace with new one and put back together.

USB port dislodged on 1TB Seagate, how do I open the case?


I did open a Seagate FreeAgent Pro 1TB !
The thing was awful, the case is just a nightmare to crack. The base is easy, you have the screws under the tiny rubber feet. The metal over the electric parts is easy to take apart, you just unglue and carefully open. You unscrew then the four flat-headed screws the hold in place the electrics, and the three big ones that hold together the base and the upper part.
Here comes the nasty part.
You unplug all connectors, but the upper case is VERY (I mean VERY) well tightened. It's held in place in 4 points, and the plastic made my fingers bleed. I can surely say it's a very well made case, strong as military, but impossible to open without destroying.
In the upper part the plastic holding points are quite close to the lower edge, but the two lower ones are somewhat 2,5 or 3 inches away from the edge, and this is where you'll get stuck. I couldn't just pry them open, so in the end, even though the unit is safe and sound, the lid (the part with the Seagate logo) was torn an bent.
My problem was at the electrical part, so I don't care much for the case, but I feel bad for having to literally destroy such a good-looking external enclosure.

Hope this is helpful to all of you in trouble with this issue !

Can't separate case to replace broken switch


Have you removed the front housing? It has 4 screws that go into the handle halves and must be removed. As far as internal clips there are none. If you removed the front sometimes the handles stick together and you have to hold each piece and gently pull apart. Hope this helps
