Toshiba satellite CD door will not open

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Turn the laptop over bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing AWAY from you, down on a table.
You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.

3) Take this cover off,

Remove the Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick')
Lay them/it carefully aside. Handle by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

4) Remove this Philips head screw, and push the optical drive out,

The top of the optical drive will have small Philips head screws, or Torx screws. They sell Torx screwdrivers real cheap,

Remove the screws, remove the cover, remove the disk.

Regards,

[Sounds like you may need a replacement optical drive ]

The A key pop out of on my Toshiba satellite A205 laptop, how do I snap it back in?


More than likely you will need to replace the keyboard. Take a look at the two little plastic Us that are under the key to see if the tips that hold the key down are all still there. There should be one on each end. Also look at the keyboard plate to see if any of the 4 metal hooks have been flattened or broken off. If you are missing any of these you will need to replace the keyboard.

Here is a link that should help you on your way to purchase another keyboard:

The keyboard is alway held down by two screws hidden under a plate. Use the following page for replacement instructions:

Toshiba satellite A205 DVD player partially Inop


The disk drive could be going bad, or the lens may be dirty.

Try getting a dvd lens cleaning kit if you don't already have one, and run that. Make sure to read all the instructions that come with the cleaning kit.
