Still cannot remove the cover

I cannot remove the casing of the unit. i have removed the six screws on the bottom, and two under the DVD lid. The top of the casing seems to move, but only to a point. If i force it, it feels as though it will break.

The lamp module has two screws. Have you removed the lamp module? That may be what is holding it. I am enclosing the manual on the enclosed link. Please note the risk of electrical shock related to removing the entire cover and the fact that it is not considered to be owner removable. Here is the link. get back if I can be of further assistance.

    oh... the color wheel is mounted at the base. you have to carefully remove the base by unscrewing the locks at the base

  • Jess Jul 31, 2009

    sir please check from the base or rear side if there are screws hidden with warranty labels. It should be at the base OR at the rear part where this screws or plastic locks are located. Most probably, they are plastic locks since you got a newer model. These locks can be unlocked by tilting slightly the cover against the base board.

    Will the lid slide back? Usually that does it.

  • Craig Butler
    Craig Butler Jul 31, 2009

    I mean if you slide it a bit , then lift up on it, then it pops up. Does that make sense?

Hi,


As projector is very delicate and costly, better to take it to some service center or repair person.

Check for hidden screws under all soft objects and labels, ones you are sure there are no screws, you should be able to get the casing open, use a flat screwdriver to pull up the edges of the case, in many cases there are plastic clips that hold it in place and it seems like it would be screwed in but it isn't.

Remove the cover on an emachine e525


Umm, well there are things like the motherboard and plamrest that have screws in them that might be holding it. You just can't remove the bottom cover, You have to start by Removing the bottom screws like you did, but then you have to remove other things before you can get the bottom case off. Also the VGA Port might have screws on both sides of it that keeps the bottom case from coming off.

Below are some steps to follow.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slot for screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the device cases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold the keyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but be careful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screws that hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gently lift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift the lcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and the lcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note of any cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift the palmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottom case, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory of where things were.

I have a scotch brand laminator tl901- it is jammed...and making a clicking noise...is there a way to open the system and try to unjam it?


First, make sure that the unit is unplugged and has sufficient time to cool off. Then remove six screws on the bottom of the laminator. The screw driver shaft must be thin enough to fit into the holes where the screws are located. Two are very easy to find -- one on each side in deep holes. The other four are hidden under small black rubber disks that the laminator rests on. peel up the rubber disks and remove the rest of the screws. At this point it is easy to remove the cover and remove the jam. To replace the cover you must use a thin tool to pull back the release level so it will fit into its opening in the cover. Replace the six screws and you should be able to ready to laminate again.

MFC8860DN SAY'S SCANNER LOCKED?? WHAT'S THE FIX??


Hello my friend.If you open the scanners door under the document cover is one switch that locks and unlocks the scanner.Move it to the position that shows that is unlocked.If this doesnt work it means the scanner lamp is in the park position and is stuck. You need to lean the printer away from the sheet feed side and bump it on the side. This should fix it. If it doesn't turn off the power and remove the two screws that hold the scanner lid on. Then remove the other 6 screws located under the lid on the left side while the lid is hanging from lid open sensor cable . After removing the base screws you can set the lid on the scanner again while you lift the scanner bed exposing the scan lamp mechanism. Push it a few inches in the machine and close the lid. You can do a test by powering the unit on and hold the lid open sensor button located on the bottom left of the lid. The system should initialize and bring the scan lamp back to the proper position. Turn off replace all screws and your done. If it doesn't work the first time push the scanner lamp more into the scanning area and repeat until works.

Unlocking Disc Tray?


If you want to remove the entire tray, remove the top of the casing and the the front as well. The front is held on by a screw on top and two smaller screws, one on each side. Then remove this face plate by releasing the clips built into the unit, two on each side, two on top, and two bigger ones on the bottom. Try to just lay the face plate/front cover down beside the unit to avoid the effort of disconnecting the other pieces. Remove the two screws, one on each side, of the dvd laser top cover. Remove the two screws under that, one on each side, they're also accessible without removing the dvd laser top cover at all, but either way all four screws need to be removed. Remove the center screw holding the top of the tray/turntable. Then remove the turntable top, you'll have to pry this up near the dvd laser while sliding it around to get it past the two interlocks(inch wide lip overhanging) built into the tray bottom. This may not be necessary to remove, but it makes it easier to slide the tray out later. Next remove the two screws holding the tray mounting brackets in place, there is one located on each side near the front. You may only have good access to one side and should remove it first to give yourself more room to work on the tighter side. You may even be able to pull the tray out without removing that side's screw and bracket at all. The tray should slide out of the front then, like it does when it opens during normal operation. At least put the top cover to the dvd laser back on, and if you're wanting to reattach the top of the turntable, remember to do that first...before attaching the dvd laser cover. There may be one or more screws somewhere I didn't mention to remove, it's been awhile since I took one apart. And of course, don't look at the dvd laser and don't mess with the two 250v capacitors...they will still be charged and can shock you. They'll look like two black cylinders, side by side, each about the size of a C battery or a little smaller. Most likely you should be fine unless you remove the power supply board and make contact with the soldering points on the underside. Just try not to slip the screw driver and so forth. Hope this helps, it's about all I could remember, so look for other attachments, screws, etc if you get stuck.
