Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

Doesn't hold up.

My Dell is less than a year old, and for some reason the screen refuses to hold itself up anymore. The two screws somehow fell out on the bottom corners and the cylinder pieces that go together when you close it (I'll add a link to a picture that helps describe it more) Are completely out of socket. It can no longer hold itself up, I have to prop it against something. Is there anything I could do, or place I could bring it to, on a budget?

Upper third of Sony Reader 600 is corrupted. Black vertical lines and some missing horizontal lines which cut across words making them unreadable.

Those lines of pixels aren't commanded properly. Dismantle the unit completely and reseat the cable that goes top the screen - if that doesn't fixes it then the screen itself is damaged, it will have to be replaced.
If your reader is less than one year old take it back to the dealer - it's still under warranty and they will fix it for free.

Hi there, my six year old dell latitude D800 lcd goes dark (not completely, but unreadable); (first brightness was jumping down and up). Two years ago I had such problem and solved by replacing the lcd...

Sorry to hear that, Paul. As far as notebooks displays go, the light behind the screen is the part most likely to go out. It generally does just that: it just goes out, though the screen itself works (the LCD is still generating a picture, which you said you can still see). Whether you run it dim or bright doesn't play much of a role.
Another inverter replacement is probably needed here, with the light itself (what the inverter is powering) an somewhat less likely explanation. In any case, the notebook will have to be opened up to do the work, where is where a lot of the cost comes from (unless you or a friend is doing the work for you).

Good luck!

I have an IBM 600e. It refuses to boot up. Nothing appears on the screen at all. The cmos battery was replaced recently. The main battery is old and holds no charge, Is this the problem or is there some...

If there is no light at all, it must be the battery. Try to remove the battery and connect only the AC adapter. If it turns on, it definitely is the battery. If it still does not turn on, then there is a serious damage on the board. Better have your computer replaced if it is not under warranty anymore.

Door will not open

I had this happen to mine a couple of years ago .. due to vibrations the screw(2) there are two that hold it in place to the counter top which appears right above the handle to either side had lossened up and prevented the door from opening. I hope this is the case and if so you want the same lentgh screw but with a sloghtly wider tread to grab as the old screw will have made the hole it goes into bigger where it will not stay in place anymore unless you have a wide theaded screw..
It wil be hard to get it opened you will have to locate the screw that is causing the door not to open.. also it can be something along the sides of the dishwasher door getting jammed in the line of it closing and it has wedged itself in a way that prevents it from opening.. but once you do if this si the problem.. you have to do what i said above
I had to unscrew my mounting screws that hold it to the counter top which are along hte front under the lip of the counter at the top of the dish washer and slowly walk the dishwasher out from under the countertop.. take care not to pull it out too far as you have water lines connected.. dont need to flood the house..
i honestly think that the sides of the dsih washer problem was a screw fell in around the gasket and caused me to have a small leak..after we fixed the door getting i think it is your mounting screws..

My Inspiron 8500 wont load completly it turns on and when it has finish loading halfway it shuts off. I tried presing F2 and F12 but it still shuts off. This started happening after i fell asleep on it...

It sounds like overheating. I would check the fans in the back to see if they are packed with lint. You will need new thermal paste, then take the keyboard bezel off then remove the screws that hold down the keyboard. Remove the four screws over the heatsink and then remove the fan. Blow these out, make sure there is nothing in the vents or heatsink. Use a credit card to scrape off old thermal paste on the processor, and the heatsink and put a small amount on the processor and put it back together.

Bosch Maxx 1000 front loader starts but stops mid-cycle. End light flashes. Can't get any response from the machine until power is removed either through 'off' on rotary dial or the power outlet. I have...

Have one of these machines and when on the drying cycle the drum started pushing the machine around the kitchen and making a very bad sound so we stopped it before it blew up. On looking at the internal workings we can see a screw and part of the plastic housing that held it in place fell to the floor. It appears to be part of a frame that holds a metal brace in place that holds the drum in place and ensure that it joins the door to the machine. To me it looks as thought the machie is capable of washing but if we use it to dry it will damage itself and breakdown. Anyone else had this problem and any solutions.

RCA Opal won't hold charge

Make sure hold/lock is not engaged


Get the firmware upgrade from RCA website

If it is less than a year old, call RCA if these methods fail and get a replacement - hope you still have your receipt.
