There are service manuals google search for compaw evo service manual, or hardware maintenance manual the lcd covers do need to be pryed off gently, you get the lcd frame odff by bending the frame upwards, towards yourself, every few inches. the bottom has 2 or 3 srews to remove first, and sometimes a wireless antenna on the front (top) of the lcd has 2 screws inside as well)

Our screen is broken may be because foot rested on the screen. How do you take out the screen so that a new one can put in.


Disassembling a laptop is not something that you should "try" by yourself.

If you accept the risks:
* make a "backup" of all your files, just to be "safe"
* turn the computer off
* disconnect the AC power
* remove the battery
* remove the covers over the hinges
* remove the keyboard -- note that a DELICATE "ribbon-cable" connects the keyboard to the case
* remove the top-plate -- by unscrewing some of the screws on the bottom of the case
* unscrew the hinges -- note that a DELICATE cable connects the LCD to the case
* remove the "surround" from around the screen
* swap the screens
* reassemble.

Good luck -- you CERTAINLY will need it.

Repalced black cartridge and the printer refuses to rotate to nect cartridge and displays "Incorrect yellow" message


Its actually simple but difficult to explain. I'll try my best.
1. open the top cover
2.you will see the two plastic hinges that hold the top cover.
3. look at the right one, you will see that it gets inside the unit, just below that plastic hinge (inside) there is a white or gray plastic part with an square hole (in rare cases might be black)
4. Introduce a thing object (an open paper clip its perfect) DO NOT FORCE THAT PART TOO MUCH AS IT CAN BREAK

This steps will unlock the carousel and will move free. You can manually rotate it and take everything out. Finally take the clip out and the carousel will lock again. Try to insert the toner as you normaly do.

Lenovo Ideapad Y510 Hinge problem


hinges take alot of stress as they have to be quite tight to hold the screen in a certain position, alot of laptops can have over tightened hinges and cause splitting in the housing. Hinges can quite often come loose.
Make sure all screws are present around the hinge area and if you can tighten up your hinges.
If the hinges are badly damage you can buy replacments for a few $ off of ebay

Right hinge coming apart


Maybe.
This is a normal wear and tear issue with Dell lappys.
You can take off the hinge cover (it's just above the keyboard) and attempt to tighten the hinges down.
If that doesn't work, then the hinges themselves are wearing out, and need to be replaced, so you'd have to contact dell in that case buddy.
To remove the hinge cover, find where there is a small notch or space to the right of it and put a VERY small screwdriver in that notch and pry it up. (MAKE SURE that your LCD panel is completely flat aka. completely open when doing this).
Once it pops out (it takes a little muscle, don't worry it's made of plastic it shouldn't break) then you can keep prying it up until it all just pops out. Now using a phillips small screwdriver (cross head) tighten the hinges (they'll be easy to see along with their screws).
Then, simply replace the hinge cover the same way it came off, put it into the laptop at an angle upwards going into the left side this time, and then just begin to press it downwards until it pops into place. Do this all along the hinge cover from left to right this time.
There! hopefully that helps, but even if it does the hinges will NEED replacing, the dell ones are cheap, and eventually do need to be replaced.

there are plastic covers over the hinges, which may be part of the faceplate. being a compaq the hinge screws are most likely torx head screws. compaq used to make a special tool for removing the plastic covers on their laptops. the tool was a bar with a piece of fiberglas circuit board embedded in it. you insert the circuit board into the groove between the top and bottom covers and twist. this is, of course after removing all of the cover screws. some of the cover screws on the display may be hidden under rubber bumpers.
