How do you replace the cable that holds the door open

The door flops opened, it doesn't have a cable or spring to keep the door opened. I found a broken cable inside the door, and ordered another one, but I can't figure out how it attaches. Help

There is a plastic plug where the cable goes into the door. Take a putty knife or flat screw driver. slide it in between to plug and door. Then pop the plug out. The plug it's self is what holds the cable to the door. Do the same on the unit end. I use a putty knife because it's easier to get behind the plug.

Check that the spring on the notched plate is not broken and fallen out.. It may be possible to get a new spring and place it back in It may be difficult to do but with some thought it can be done.

I have a stanley garage door opener model 1200.51 which is chain and cable driven. The problem i am having is each cable came off and i want to know how to reattach them.

The most important thing is to understand that the door spring can KILL YOU. If you are not absolutely certain that you know what you are doing, call a garage door guy. Many poeple get SERIOUSLY hurt.

So, you need two perfectly fitting rods to fit into the spring tightening end of the spring..
Release all spring tension. Release the opener.
Level the door with shims if necessary.
Install the first cable and turn the spring main rod to hold tension.
Put a vice grip on the main rod to keep it from unwinding any more
Release the 2nd cable spool and thread the other side cable. Turn the spool to have the same tension as the other cable.
Then wind the spring about 6 revolutions. (35 flats or tool insertions).

Verfiy the cable is still threaded correctly on both sides.

Correct spring tesnion is when the door will stay at 1/2 closed.
REconnect the opener and good to go.

Replacement for the spring loaded door on my tower

No solution for this. All cd players are non repairable or at least not cost effective to repair. My advice is to just purchase another one. Cost for these is now in the $40.00 range - cheaper then getting this one fixed
