Apple has discontinued service parts for this particular display.
You could try, however M2453 displays can be purchase cheaply on ebay so I doubt it would be worth the expense.

Replace broken stand (acrylic portion)

Try clear epoxy glue. It will come in two tubes that you mix together. You will need to have a way to hold the parts in place until it reaches full strength ~ 24 hrs. Available at Harbor Freight online or HF stores.

Dess inspiron 531 will not power up

Let's start with diagnosing whether the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

The test does not involve the Power On switch. You are going to bypass the switch.

Dell Support > Inspiron 531s Desktop PC > Owner's Manual,

Removing and Installing Parts > System Board Components,

[Removing and Installing Parts section also has, Removing the Computer Cover ]

View where Number 8 points to.
main power connector (ATX_POWER)

It is a whitish connector with 24 socket holes.
The 24-pin ATX main power connector on the motherboard.
You will see something more like this,

[Photo to the Right. Note color of connectors does NOT matter ]

See the Green wire? That is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.
{Power Supply On }

ALL the Black wires you see are Ground wires. You are going to briefly jump the Green wire to ANY Black wire.
The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip.

The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape.
The middle of the U is wrapped a few times, with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers and thumb to hold onto.

The U shape is turned upside down. The 'legs' are what is used to go down into socket holes, with the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

Viewing the photo to the right, note the wires going down into the squarish socket holes.
One 'leg' of the U-shaped jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, and RIGHT NEXT TO THE wire.

Slides down past the green insulation of the wire, and touches a metal terminal. Every power wire going into that connector, ends in a metal terminal. Looks like this,

You can see the front of them in the middle photo. Brass looking with a small hole in the center.
You MUST make sure the leg of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole far enough, that it touches the metal terminal. It is pretty far down in there.

Power supply plugged into power, taped portion of U-shaped jumper wire held, guide one leg into the green socket hole, and the other leg into any black wire socket hole.

[Shock? The Soft Power On wire {Green wire } is 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.
However there may be a spark. Just warning you so you don't freak out. lol! }

The contact period mad is no more than 2 seconds.
IF, the Power Supply comes on, you have a bad Power On switch.

IF, the Power Supply does NOT come on, you have a bad Power Supply.

Example of an ATX power on switch,

[The Power On button is a plastic assembly. A type of ATX power on switch is installed inside. The above example is used in a LOT of desktop computers ]

If you need guidance in replacing your Power Supply, post back in a Comment.

Washer unbalanced on final spin, cannot stop the unbalance

Hi Sparky,
The reason it's out of balance is because the skate plate shoes are worn out and need to be replaced. You'll have to access the washer in order to do this. There's a video available that shows how to do it.

After you have opened up the washer you'll see that the tub is sitting on a three legged pedestal. The shoes are in between the skate plate and the top of the pedestal. Here's a picture (and part number) to illustrate...


Do one shoe at a time by lifting the skate plate off of the pedestal about an inch or so and wedging it there (I use a hammer handle as a wedge). The shoes simply snap into place, so the old ones will have to be snapped out of place first. Use another hammer and tap the shoes out of their sockets from underneath.

NOTE! ---> When you place the new shoe into its' place DO NOT try to snap it in!!! (if you do, you'll break it) Just let it rest in it's place for now. Remove your wedge and allow the full weight of the tub to sit on it. Then move on to the next shoe and repeat.

After all 3 shoes have been replaced it's time to snap them in completely. Do this from the top of the tub. Using your body weight, press down on the tub from above on all three corners (where the shoes are located). This will apply even pressure to the top of the shoe and keep it from breaking. You should have all 3 snapped in now. Use a flashlight and look underneath to verify (you should see the tabs of the shoes poking all the way through the pedestal).

Now all that's left is to rebuild the washer cabinet and start some laundry!


p.s. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but this job can be done easily within an hour and the parts only cost ~$12.00!

How the hell does the skirt go on this piece of ****?

Put the metal frame on the board - then turn them upside down. The skirt has four slits - where the knobs on the bottom of the board come through - pull the material tautly while snapping on buttons.

Snapping monitor into stand

You slide in the 2 bent legs, then it doesnt snap. there are supposed to be 2 screws that hold it into place on the top portion of the stand. Find the correct screw size and your stand should keep your monitor up.

Studio display m7649 picture will not come up when connected to toshiba laptop

I am not sure how youve manage to connect these 2 items. You did not specify whic Portage you have, but even the most recent only has SXGA video port. The Apple cinema display connector is ADC. APPLE DISPLAY CONNECTOR. No computers on the planet have this port except for apple's. It's basically a modified DVI connector. In order for you to use this monitor with your computer, you would have to purchase a DVI to ADC connector , which is another APPLE only item and selld for $100 new. You would then have to purchase a SXGA to DVI adaptor...It sounds like a costly endeavor, and with a connections your Portage's onboard video card , amynot even support the resolution for this monitor.

Hope this helps.

Bose Cube Speakers separated


I had the same problem with a Bose separated double-cube Acoustimass speaker/array but was able to fix it as follows:

small, thin, flat-head screwdriver
large pliers

1. Disconnect the speaker wires from the cube.
2. Remove the grille from the top speaker cube. It just pops off.
3. Insert a small, thin, flat-head screwdriver around the perimeter of the speaker. You will have to pry lightly to break the glue’s seal.
4. Using a set of pliers (large, plumber-sized) wiggle the speaker until it comes free. You might need to grip it top to bottom and then left to right. The speaker will come free of the case.
5. Remove the white insulation to get a clear view of the dislodged brace/connector.
6. Stack the top and bottom cubes. Make sure that the rubber seal between the cubes is seated properly and that the black and white cables are not pinched.
7. Using the C-clamp, compress the brace/connector until it seats on one side. Loosen the C-clamp and compress the opposite side. The brace/connector should snap into place. Be sure the make sure that you do not pinch the speak wires that are running through the center of the brace/connector.
8. Test the articulation. It should be the same as your other speakers.
9. Replace the white insulation in the back of the speaker case.
10. Press the speaker into the case’s face. If you wish, you can apply your preference of glue to the edge of the speaker prior to pressing it into the case.
11. Snap the grille onto the speaker.
12. Connect the speaker wires to the cube and you are done.

You should be good to go.
