Screen repair manual


Basically you start by removing the rubber bumpers located at the 4 corners and along side the plastic strip that goes around the lcd screen. One they are removed you can remove the screws that hold the plastic strip. Use your finger to pry the plastic strip off.

Next you start removing the screws that hold the lcd screen on the sides. Then tilt the lid forward and the screen will fall into your hand. Don't let it fall down on the keyboard because there is a cable in the back of the lcd screen that you will need to remove. The cable might have a piece of tape at the connections to make it secure.

If the screen does not fall down then you might have screws at the 4 corners that are holding it, so remove them.

Below is a link to a video on how to do it.

How do you fix a dm4 Hinge that is broke where it connects to the screen


You can buy hinges on ebay at:

http://www.ebay.com

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.

If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.

If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.

Need replacement keyboard for gateway ml6732 laptop computer, don't have the old one and have no idea how to put it in. Need directs and need to know if screws come with new keyboard, or if it takes screws...


You may be able to get from Gateway. From a quick search I just did, it looks like Mundo Corp.com, has one. $49 dollars Here is the link,
http://www.mundocorp.com/ml6732.html

Now I don't have a Gateway Service Manual in front of me, for the Gateway ML6732 laptop. I don't believe it's available online. One, has to be an authorized repair shop, to have access to this information.

However, I wish you to know that I am a computer repair tech, and repair laptops all the time.
Keyboard replacement is one of the easier things to do, concerning repairing a laptop.
It is especially easy now for you, as you don't have to remove the old one.

The laptop keyboard will just come by itself, I believe. There are one, or two screws, that hold it in. However, the keyboard has tangs on the outside edges of it. The keyboard 'body' is made of plastic.

These tangs, are just small protrusions, that stick out from the rectangular body of the keyboard itself. The tangs also hold the keyboard in place. Once you sit the keyboard in place, you just push down on the edges, and the tangs snap in. Pop, pop, pop, and the tangs are snapped in.

Before you are ready to install the keyboard, you may have to partially remove a small thin plastic strip. This strip is located above where the keyboard goes, and under the area of the LCD screen.
Viewing it, you should see LED lights in it. There may be speakers in this strip also. The plastic strip goes almost all the way across the front of the laptop.
I know it's starting to sound complicated, but it isn't.

This plastic strip may also have hinge covers, incorporated on the ends of it. They cover the hinges for the LCD screen.
The plastic strip has tangs on it's edges also. To remove it, you take a small flat tip screwdriver,(Like a flat tip jewelers screwdriver), insert it under one of the edges, where it meets the laptop body, and gently pry up.
I say 'Gently', but sometimes it takes a little force. If you can't get the screwdriver down in there, move over. You may be at an area where on of the tangs are.
The strip will come up with a POP! You'll think you broke it! In actuality, you could drive a truck over that plastic strip, and not damage it. (Okay! That's an exaggeration, but you catch my drift)

Watch as you go along. If you have LED lamps in this strip, and/or speaker wires, you don't want to damage the wires.
You are just seeing if you can pop it up, so that you can set it towards the LCD screen. Move it back far enough to get the keyboard in. Should you have to disconnect the wires to move this strip back far enough, you will see real small White connectors. Looks like a small rectangular block. This is a Male/Female connector. Just take your fingernails, and pry these apart.
There may be two wire cables. These cables have different size connectors, so there will be no confusion when reattaching them together.

The laptop keyboard goes in at a 45 degree angle. Bottom towards you, top away from you. You set it down in the laptop body, align the tabs, (tangs), and ease it down. Once you are within about three inches, you connect the one, or two wire cable connectors, from the laptop to the keyboard. Move the cables to a position where they won't be pinched, and go ahead and push the keyboard down into position. Go along the edges of the keyboard, and push down. You are snapping the tangs into position. Snap, snap, snap.

Attach the cables for the plastic strip, if you had to remove them. Watch the cable, (Wire) placement as you did for the keyboard. Snap the plastic strip back into place.

You're done!

This link shows the Gateway MT6704 laptop. It should be very similar to yours. It has large color photos, and instructions, of how to replace a keyboard on this laptop. It should give a basic 'feel' of how to replace yours,
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-keyboard-from-gateway-mt6704-model-ma7/
(If this link doesn't come up as a link you just click on, copy (CTRL + C), and Paste, (CTRL +V), it into your address bar. Then press the Enter key)

If you get time, I would appreciate it if you would rate my solution.

Long 20 inch plastic was taken out of a HP 1220 C Printer.


This plastic strip is probably the so called "encoder strip", it has many fine black lines that the carriage sensor counts to find out where the carriage is located on the paper.

This encoder strip is attached directly to the printer's frame on the right, and to a leaf spring on the left side. It also runs through a slot on the back side of the carriage.

It can be treaded back and reattached if you're nimble-fingered, but in many cases it's broken and needs to be replaced. As far as I remember HP doesn't sell these parts separately (correct me if I'm wrong!) so if it's broken the printer most probably has to be turned in for service.

But if the encoder strip is intact, there's no right or left side - or up/down - of it, so it can be attached any way you want - as long as you get it back properly. Usually it's best to first hook it up on the leaf spring, then attach it on to the small hook on the right side. Being able to slide the carriage back and forth eases the operation. You can get it back without disassembling the printer; it's fiddly but it's possible.

Good luck! :)

Carrier jam on printer


There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

Carrier jam Lexmark 4300


I had this same problem, I found a long skinny thin plastic strip had fallen off & caused the problem for me. The plastic strip has slits at each side to attach to the inside back of printer, on the left side is a down ward facing arrow, the plastic strip feeds through the back middle of the cartridge carrier and then the slits are to be inserted to the metal tab like pieces on the back sides inside the printer on the right side (facing printer) it will look like a small rectangular hole with a longer metal tab like piece sticking out & on the left is a smaller squared like hole with a flat smaller metal like tab which will line up if the plastic strip is feed through the back of the cartridge carrier properly. This should allow the cartridge carrier to glide properly & work as it should, with no more banging! Sorry my tech. terminology isn't good, I am not Knowelegable with this sort of thing, just sharing my experience :) HTH!
