How do I remove the optical drive from an Acer6900. I slide the green slider to the rear and the drive will slide back about an inch. It will move no further. I can't see any obstruction, but something solid is stopping the removal

You may need to remove the front bezel before taking the drive from the bay. there are screws that latch the drive into place, and they are likely hitting the bezel on the way out. Most bezels pop off easily. You should consult Acer tech support for details.

How do i remove this DVD Drive in a Dell XPS 8300

Open the case, press the green slider at the side of the Optical drive, and slide it out the front. You may need to remove the front to do this, I don't remember the details it's been so long. In fact, their may be a green button to press at the very top to "pop" off the front. So many models, so many variations.....sigh.

I have a Lenovo Y650 4185-55U ptop and need instructions on how to open it so I can replace the dvd drive.

Flip pc over. There will be one screw not part of a plate. About an inch in front of the battery and about 4 inches from where you would put in a DVD. Only one screw holds the DVD in. Unscrew it and gently slide the optical drive out. If the optical drive does not move with some gentle prying with finger nails or a plastic tool, you did not loosen the correct screw.

Compaq Presario s5100nx - remove green faceplate

These are not meant to be removed they clip down the screw so that it cannot move back and forth. You have to remove the front cover and slide out the devices by lifting the tabs on top of the screws so it can slide out and slide in and lock again. John

6. Remove pizza sliding door rear latch with pizza remote control actuator rod attached to pizza latch, from pizza sliding door.-------------
First you need to get the right tools for the job and the right parts to fix the problem.There is a hinge pin in both the upper and lower hinges and four brass bushings and there is two different size bushings in each hinge and also two hinge pin retaining for the tools you need a spring compressor,jack,hammer,punch. First open the door all the way,put jack under door,I like to use a 2by4 board on top of the jack to help spread the wieght of the door out a little,next if the door has a wireing harness in the jamp loosen the rubber insulation form both the door and the body this gives a couble of inches of slack in the wireing.Next use the spring compressor to remove the spring,then use the punch and hammer to drive out the is very hard to get them to move an first but gets easyer as they start to move.I would recomend having a helper to hold the door upright as it will fall when the pin is removed from the hinge.Onece the pins are out move the door and jack away from the body to gain more axcess room the replace the bushings,two in the door side and two in the body side,then slide door and jack back and align hinge holes and install new pins. I allways grease the bushing and pins before installing.Drive the new pins all the way flush with the hinge and install the retainers.Reinstall the spring and reattach the wireing insulation. ------- Open the door so it is directly above the bench. Observe how all the fasteners, be they bolts or pins with bushings, are aligned. Generally, the bolts and pins point toward the center of the hinge from the top or bottom, The bolts and bushings are on the body-side bracket for the upper bracket and the door bracket for the lower one. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Replace cdr-rw drive

Open the side of the mac. The optical drive caddy is held by 2 screws.One is on the lower edge of the caddy approx. 2/3 of the way towards the rear end. The second is at the top of the caddy fixing into the front of the case. Remove the rear cover plate from the caddy by sliding it towards you. Slide the caddy towards the rear of the computer, this will then allow you to remove the cables from the drive and remove the caddy from the computer. Remove the 4 mounting screws from the optical drive (2 on each side) and remove the drive by sliding it out forwards. Replacement is a reverse of the above procedure.
