Have you unscrewed the speakers on the sides? then the loosen the screww under the rubber on the handles? the screws are hidden under the arm carrying groove.

Lexmark x6570 hinge is messed up so im getting cover open message

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 push 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 of 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.

This guide is to provide some help for those who want to disassemble their laptop.
You have to be sure that the problem you face is from the hardware, and that your laptop is not under warranty, since that laptop disassembly void warranty.
Search on the net for service manuals some are free and other cost around 6$ . Not find your model ? download some free service manual from different brands and read them many steps are the same in laptop disassembly. But i do recommended to find the manual that fit your laptop because you may need to know the part number of the defective part to change it.
Now you have to prepare a clean working area with small box for the different parts and their screws, and maybe a pen and a paper to remember particular step.
To disassemble the computer, you need the tools below:
Wrist ground strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
Small Phillips screw driver
Flat head screw driver
Hexagonal driver
NOTE : The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.
When you remove the stripe cover, please be careful not to scrape the cover.
In most of laptop you can actually access by the base to these bays :
hard disk
Remove them all, to remove the optical disk just release the screw securing the optical disk module,push the ODD module using a screwdriver and remove the ODD module from the main unit.
After that look on the keyboard area to find how to remove the keyboard for example with an Acer aspire 5100, you have to remove the middle cover from the edge of the middle cover and carefully detach the middle cover, then you just have to release the two screws securing the keyboard plate and carefully detach the keyboard plate from the edge of the keyboard plate finish by release the keyboard FFC lock carefully because it is fragile. Then remove the keyboard plate.
After that you can either disassembly the lcd module or try to access the motherboard.
For the LCD module carefully disconnect the LCD cable and any other cable that you can see, release any screws holding the LCD module on the bottom side of the main unit, release any other screws securing the LCD hinges on the main unit, then detach the LCD module from the main unit.
For the motherboard every model are different then you have to explore by yourself, but not forget to read some service manuals before.
You can find some free service manuals at laptop support.
I hope that this will give some help.
Didier Pradel is the webmaster of laptop support where you can find many useful informations, and help for your lovely laptop.

Dishes on the top tray still come out dirty after washing

This is probably a clogged internal disposal screen. This is a relatively simple procedure that requires 2 tools. There is a screen behind the cutter in the built in disposal unit that gets clogged easily. You may want to order a new part before disassembly. To disassemble: You will need 2 sizes of torqs (star shaped) screw drivers and some patience in reassembly. Be sure to note how things are assembled before removing them. You do not need to unplug the unit to do this as you will be inside the unit and not around any exposed electrical components. Make sure the unit has been off for a while so that the heater element is cool. Remove the top rack by squeezing and sliding the plastic locks upward (on the ends of the rails) Then slide the rack out. Remove the bottom rack turn the center plastic retainer on top of the spray mast cclockwise (opposite most all other screws) and lift out main spray arm remove screw from back center water pipe (oblong flat 2 piece plastic unit on the back wall inside) and rotate it clockwise to release the tabs under the pump cover. Lift above a carefully move out of the way loosen and carefully remove 4 screws from the pump cover/ diverter/ screen unit and lift out exposing the top of the pump and motor housing (usually grey plastic) Locate the screw at the front left of the pump cover that holds down the disposal cover. remove the screw and note which groove the screen is in as well as the side of the screen the blade is on. Replace the blade/ screen unit or clean the old one (under a tap of warm water and with an old tooth brush) and reinstall it. Assembly is reverse of above. Note! Be sure locking tabs are under pump cover as before and you don?t drop the screw for the oblong water pipe!

What does the ce letter come on when i turn on

It is an overcurrent error and only two thing that your washer is in trouble with.The winding in the stator assembly is short circuited or the main board is bad. Check the winding.
  1. Remove the back cover.
  2. Remove the large bolt in the center shaft. You may need a helper to hold the inside of the drum.
  3. Pull the rotor off the shaft.
  4. Remove the two screws from the tub bracket.
  5. Remove the six bolts on the stator.
  6. Unplug the two connectors on the stator.
  7. Pull the stator off the tub.
  8. Grab a multitester and measure the resistance between the terminals of the 3-pin connector on the stator.
  9. Resistance should be between 5 to 10 ohms, else replace the stator with part number 1266809. Price ranges from $100 to $150.
  10. Install the new stator in reverse order of disassembly.
  11. If resistance is between 5 to 10 ohms, replace the main board. Part number 1268306 and costs about $65-$80$
  • Remove the 2 screws on the back of the top panel.
  • Pull the top plate backward and upward.
  • Disconnect the POWER connector and SENSOR
    SWITCH ASSEMBLY from the main board assembly.

Can't see how to open C66 printer

Yes, I'm afraid getting the covers off this family of printers is a nightmare - but possible. I have done a few but usually wished I hadn't bothered! Anyway - here's some notes on the job:
Normal 0 C6x and C8x Family Disassembly Notes Removing the end covers is the most difficult task. The service manual is very confused over this. Do not remove the thin “end plates” (dark plastic) - these are merely decoration. RHS and LHS are when looking at the front of the printer (opposite way round to the service manual). In the service manual, the red hooks hold the end covers, and the blue hooks the main centre cover..
End Cover RHS Release the hook at the top rear, and the two “prong hooks at the bottom, then prise the end cover off as far as possible. The end cover is now held on only by two hooks deep inside the cover (top front corner and top centre). It is impossible to reach these two hooks – brilliant design eh! These hooks are orientated downwards, and you need to lever up the flexible edge of the cover at the top, whilst trying to push it off. Do the corner one first, then the top one. The hooks are easily broken, so care is required.
End Cover LHS Release the hook at the top rear, and the one “prong hook at the bottom as before. There is a small square plate underneath with a >slot next to it. The purpose of this slot is not to release a hook inside, but to permit you to prise up the cover so that it can slide over this plate. There is also a similar slot near a foot – this appears to have no purpose. Then do the top hooks as before.

Speaker going out

I had the same problem. Eventually the other speaker quit also. The problem was a broken wire under the door. This required complete disassembly of the unit just to get at these two wires. Sorry the news isn't better.

Screen gone blank

I had the same fault with the handset losing it's display, phone worked great but could not see to access internal phone directory.
To strip down the phone you need a very clean hard plastic/granite
work surface and a small philips screwdriver and a small flatblade screwdriver.
First of all remove the battery cover and the batteries, put them in safe spot on the work surface (Tip: take the top cover off an aerosol tin to use for holding the screws and small parts you remove)
Remove the front facia by gently teasing it away from the body of the phone, there are 2 plastic lugs either side of the battery compartment, ease them towad the edge of the casing to release the front facia, it should then unclip easily with your thumbnail.
Near the edge of the phone you will see 2 small screws, remove them carefully and set them aside, please note these are longer than two other screws you will encounter later in the disassembly.
Seperate the two main parts of the case from the battery compartment end of the phone and work towards the other end, there are two release points on the outside of the casing, gently insert a small driver into the recess whilst applying a small amount of lifting pressure between the two casing halves and it should spring open. (Note that the case hinges on a clip at the top edge of the phone which helps with its re-assembly later.)
Please be aware that the speaker wires are soldered to the main board and should not be disconnecetd or cut!!!
At the battery end of the phone is a small strip of white plastic tape covering two short screws, these hold the cradle charging contacts to the circuit board, remove them with the metal contacts and keep them safe.
With a little coaxing the rest of the phone should now come out of the casing. Be very carefl not to touch any of the gold contacts on the circuit board or the buttons may not work, you may gently clean these using a dry microfibre cloth. DO NOT SCRUB THEM, simply rub gently a few times.
Unclip the display holder andnote the earpice comes loose, this can be fed through the plastic holder byturning it sideways and pressing it through. DO Not damage wiring!
You should now see the tiny ribbon cable on the display itself, either side of it are a thin white plastic lug which can be slid carefully away from the edge of the display to release the cable. Remove cable gently and re-insert it back into the connector it came from, ensuring it is fully home and is perfectly aligned at right angles to the display, then carefully slide the retaining lugs back into place which will lock the cable back into place.
You can now re-assemble the phone, carefully.
It worked for me, hopefully it should for you unless the display is damaged prior to or during disassembly.

Remove battery cover and battery. There are four small screws visible on the rear cover, remove those. Wiggle and distort the back cover a little at the bottom of the phone until it pull partly free from the phone, slide a guitar pick or small flat blade screwdriver between the phone and the rear cover, at the side of the phone, pry this cover off until it snaps free. You will see the main board now. Remove the two screws holding this board on, carefully fold it back towards the battery area. The main ribbon cable is visible now. Remove a green tape on the socket where the ribbon cable joins the board. pull the ribbon away from the board gently and use a screwdriver or something else to cut the adhesive between the board and the cable. The socket has a hinged brown piece closest to where the cable comes in, that flips up to release the cable. The small cable coming from the number pad is removed by gently prying up the rectangular connector from the board. Now with the board free you can remove six screws from the plastic backing plate, and remove that plate from the slider assembly (one of the screws is hidden by a piece of green tape). On the front half of the phone there are six small screws on the rear side (the camera side). Four are visible, two are hidden behind rubber plugs at the top of the phone. Separate the chrome trim from the backing plate by starting at the bottom of the phone, by the key pad, and it may be stuck from a little day-to-day dirt but separate it there, then swing the bottom end out and release the front cover from the two clips that hold the top end together. You now can separate the ribbon cable from the screen assembly in a similar way as you did with the other end of the cable. Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. Be sure to replace the pieces of tape, and the wire mesh shield attached to them, they serve to prevent radio frequency interference between parts of this device, and between this device and others.

Good luck, and happy dreams.
