I want to replace the complete lid on a IBM A31 with another A31. The case is broken near the hinge and the lock is broken on both sides so it won't stay closed. Can you tell me how?

Unable to close cover of scanner. Hinges are locked fully open. No information on how to unlock hinges


The scanner's lid pulls upward a bit, and can sometimes get stuck that way -- in that case, the hinges won't bend. Try making sure the lid at the hinge end is flush against the bottom part of the scanner.

Lid support broke


Not much info but if you mean the lid on your DS falls backward when opened then one of two things has happened either the small barrel lock in the hinge has broken, this is rare. Or you have broken the hinge allowing the barrel lock to rotate in the case.
The barrel is cheap and a very easy fix by opening the case removing the led lens holder then change the lock. If you have broken the hinge you will need to replace the case, tricky job requiring patience especially when transfering the top screen to the new case. Watch a few you tube instruction videos to get a better idea of whats involved.

This is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working.

On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $25 and is fairly simple to replace if you follow the steps below:

Hiya. It is possible to fix so long as it is not caused by the laptop warping slightly. If it's the teeth that have broken then you need to replace that part - it's not particularly easy to do tho and normally means taking the screen plastics off. Any computer shop could do this - at a price. Alternatively you could buy the part from Ebay and do it yourself for less than £10. It's a matter of removing all the screws on the front of the screen (often hidden under black covers). Splitting the front from the back casing - carefully because it is easy to crack the thin plastic, and watch that nothing slips out of place (you want to see how it comes off so you can put it back on the same way). The clip may just sit there or could be screwed in position. Replace the part and reverse the order to get everything back. Lots of fiddly work and not worth the trouble unless it is really being a nuisance.

Machine stops mid cycle and does not drain. machine is whirlpool AWM6100/S


If your symptoms are:

1. Washer fills
2. Washer agitates.
3. When washer gets to spin cycle, it stops.

This is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working. On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $35 and can usually be found at either repairclinic.com, or searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number (located around the lid opening) in the Search menu.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions please let me know by posting comments.
