How do I open the Samsun X15 to replace the power jack?!!! Help!
I have tried everything, unscrewed every screw on the back but it just won't come apart. Is there some kind of special key I need? because on the back I can see a little hole and a sign next to it, wich looks like a pic of a chain, I am imagining I need to put a key in there.

The power jack inside of the toshiba satellite 2455-s30x is NOT soldiered to the motherboard!! WOOHOO!! It actually sits on a set of rails. It easily slides out and is removed from the motherboard with a snap. Very simple and easy to replace. I know, because I have a 2455-s305 and mine just broke! I got it out, and was super happy to see that it is not a part of the motherboard. Now where do I get one?!?!

Hey there chilli- Nope, you don't need any key that I know of. Need to have a little more info just so we are on the same page. You said that you took out every screw on the back. What part of the system are you trying to get into? Are you talking about the back (down below the screen) or are you talking about the bottom? Ron-

It was the fan at the top of the freezer that had stopped working after 3 years, therefore the freezing air wasn't getting to the top of the freezer. From the inside, unscrew light unit and unclip, pop out two circular discs at top and unscrew one screw. Unscrew 2 more screws and prise the back panel off. (Arrows mark the clips). Pull off fan, take out motor, replace (keeping rubber bits) and push back fan with a bit of nail varnish on spindle. Put everything back together. Turn on, depress door light switch and after 30 seconds fan should rotate. You can buy a fan on eBay or from www.4daewoo.co.uk for about 40 pounds.
Unfortunately it as to be open from top take power off open top normally two screws at the back slide cover off look inside front loader for door catch unscrew and done open door replace with new one same model connect wires as disconnected take pics before disconnect screw it back on done.hope it helps you
However, there was no need to remove the lower screws on the back, or to detach the keyboard or anything else. Just have to take off the "tuba" cover, unplug the power, unscrew the screen, screw open the screen (really the hard part!! Takes alot of force to get it open (dangerous)), and then finally the power jack replacement.
hello, probably when the power jack was being changed, a connector cables was mistakenly tampered with,
therefore in order to fix this, try to unscrew the laptop, check all available cable that makes a connection. once you sight the cable that was tampered with, connect it back to its normal place, screw thelaptop back together then turn it on.
For all the function and portability laptops provide, there are also
some drawbacks. The biggest problem with laptops is with battery life.
To get constant battery power, the laptop has to be plugged into a wall
outlet. The wall plug then connects to the DC jack in the back of the
laptop. The DC jack is no more than a little piece of metal that
conducts the electricity for the computer. These DC jacks are known to
be fragile and break off easily. If this happens, you can open the
laptop and replace the DC jack yourself.
the internal battery pack from your laptop. Flip the laptop over and
locate the release button for the battery pack. Hold the button in to
slide the battery pack free. It is important that you remove the
internal battery pack as well as unplug the power cord from the wall
outlet to prevent risk of shock while working inside the laptop.
all of the screws on the underside of your laptop. The number of screws
will depend on the model of computer. There should be one at each
corner and then one or two screws that hold the hard drive
cover in place. Once the screws are removed, take out your computer's
hard drive. Newer-model computers will have a hard drive that slides
out of the side of the computer.
the two screws at the back of the computer that hold the laptop
screen's hinges in place. Once these two screws are removed, gently
pull up on the screen until you clear the silver pegs from the holes in
the laptop's body. Two wires lead from the screen into the computer, so
ensure you do not pull so hard that you disconnect them. Carefully set
the laptop screen aside so it does not get damaged while you work
inside the computer.
the two halves of the laptop's body to expose the computer's internal
components. Flip the keyboard on its face, making sure not to
disconnect the keyboard's connector. Underneath the keyboard will be a
metal plate that covers the computer's motherboard. Unscrew the screws
that hold this plate in place and set it aside.
the DC jack for the laptop. Most all laptop's DC jack outlets are
located at the back left corner of the computer. Using your tweezers,
remove the old DC jack. Identify the slot in the motherboard that the
old DC jack came out of. If the DC jack was loose before you removed
it, there will be a small slot at the base of the opening in the back
of the computer that the DC jack pops into. Using the tweezers again,
slide the new DC jack into this slot until you hear a clicking sound.
To hold it in place you can solder the new jack to the motherboard, or
simply superglue it in place. Don't use too much superglue or you will
risk losing the ability for the jack to conduct electricity.
hi I have just repaired my gateway 7330 it has a structure similar to
m520s and many other e machines (power jack and battery problem) now it
is even charging :O I was about to order jack but just iron soldering
worked fine here is step by step I can help anyone through my email, I
am living in maine I can even repair for free
you should get the screws out at the back of the pc all the way
take out the harddisk before you start
pop up the two things from the back of the lcd
pop out the power and volume panel
unscrew the keyboard
unscrew the metal panels
(you should take out two cables from wireless adapter before while
unscrewing the back side so it wont bother you it is easy to plug and
lean the lcd all the way back and unscrew underneath the lcd 4 screws
there are still two screws under the lcd area to the left unscrew them if you see them
take out the dvd writer
unscrew any other places that you find on the motherboard
there is a lean point(the metal long thing screwed to motherboard around beneath the left windows key take it out too)
take the card reader out by unscrewing 2-3 screws
thats all I remember
after unscrewing and taking all the pieces out
try to pull the mainboard from microphone speaker input
(unscrew any other remaining screws if you feel any pressure)
with a screwdriver try pulling from the input and the left of the keyboard pull the mainboard but be careful
create a little space that you can work with the dc input
the most inportant ones are the two in the middle
try to concentrate on the one that wore most
take the old solder out by your soldering gun or whatever
and then put new ones in carefully
put all the stuff back (whenever I do it I almost always have afew more screws than I am supposed to whatever it works)
be careful pulling the keyboard cable and other similar cables (they
have a bed which can be opened dont just pull it) pull the bed upwards
and open it and then take it out do the opposite when putting it all
thats all no matter what other people say I love this pc I love p4s
gateway is better than ok (you should have seen my acer)
generally all laptops can be opened more or less in the same way first undo all screws in the back,
next you need to remove the panel where the power button is most of them just unclip and come off easily using a flat screw driver, you'll probably find some more screws underneath,if the hinges covers are part of the panel they should come off with the panel if seperate just check for any screws if not they just unclip undo any further screws, next unscrew the keyboard, unplug it, unplug the mouse pad, then the top part of the laptop base should just lift easily, make sure you remove the battery before you start all this, any drives, hard drive, etc
hope this would be of some help
