You'll have to flip your turntable upside down on a pillow or beanbag, remove the feet & all the screws including the harder plastic underside to get to the hinges where by which you can estimate whether there was wear & tear & needs replacing or whether it was a simple fix by just tightening up the screws that hold the hinges in place.

SOURCE: TECHNICS SL-B280 DUST COVER W/ HINGES

All parts are discontinued for this model. The SL1200MK2 dust cover will not fit this turntable. You can actually have a dust cover made rather simply and cheaply (depending on where you live). Just take the dimensions to a PLEXIGLASS or even a GLASS shop. You can even purchase the Plexiglass yourself, cut it, and glue it together. I would suggest getting it professionally done. You can use any high impact plexiglass. Get something that is resistant to scratches and discoloring.

Where do I get set of hinges for dust cover of AKAI AP-X1 turntable


Check on ebay for that tt and maybe someone has parts listed. Or try the manufacturer but if a unit is more than ten years old parts are usually no longer available.

Where can I find dust cover hinges for the above model?


Dust cover hinges can be like hen's teeth!

The message I am looking it from you shows no above model, but you can ask the makers if they are still around for spare part suppliers. Otherwise it's off to E-Bay to see if anyone has one second hand.

HOW DO YOU GET THE DOOR OFF?


There is usually a plastic part covering the top hinge. It will pull or snap off, rarely there might be a small screw.

Remove that plastic covering, and then unbolt the part of the hinge assembly attached to the body of the freezer.. DO THIS WHILE THE DOOR IS CLOSED! That is so the magnetic seal around the door will tend to hold it in place. Lean against it as you remove the hinge part so the door does not fall away and land on you, or even worse: break the door!

Slowly lift the door out of the bottom hinge, and carefully set it somewhere safe.

Be VERY CAREFUL when you set the door down. If you set it upright, against a wall or something, be aware that there is a pin sticking out the bottom of that door hinge, and it will likely simply ruin any flooring you set it on - and I speak that as a "voice of experience"!

Have fun!

Mess. saying cover open i cant seem to close the top down. the top cover seem to be off track or broken


I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem where I went to print and received an error message saying that the cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to pus it back into place with no luck.

Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.

To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the top cover or the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.

I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.

The interior light no longer works.


Could be the bulb. Here is how to change it. The dryer bulb is located at the top left of the dryer rim. You will need a torx wrench the correct size to remove the screw that holds down the bulb cover. This type of wrench is available at your local home or auto store and is inexpensive. Once you loosen and remove the screw the cover will fall down. One end is hinged so that end remains in place. On the cover its tells you the type and wattage of bulb to buy. Ours is a 10 watt appliance bulb. You can take the burned out bulb to your local home store and they will get you what you need. The bulb screws in and out of the socket. Just screw the new bulb in and put the cover in back in place and screw the cover down. It is simple. Good luck

Screen falls back


Loose hinges or bad hinges. You can pop off the hinge cover (above the keyboard) and 'try' to tighten the hinges, but if that doesn't work, it's failing hinges and the only fix is to get them replaced mate.
