DP-30 Disassembly Have a dented top cover for DP-30 Finder. how can I remove the top cover and replace with another one? Do both right side adjusters pop off without damage. or are special tools needed?

    As I have since found out, DP-30 top cover is easily removed with minimal cosmetic risk by prying off the diopter correction center cap with very sharp x-acto knife blade tip, removing the screw, then pulling out the knob, and undoing the two screws on each side of cover and the one screw at the back of the flash shoe. Cover slides upward but is still attached by the five wires from flex-harness to the cover mounted flash shoe plate. Noting the wiring color scheme, these are easily un-soldered so cover can be replaced.

My bright lights comes on when i turn on my right signal , and sometimes when im driving , any suggestions?


It is the multi-function switch. It is a very common issue I found one on Amazon for $45 plus $5.95 s&h. Search you tube for "06 grand prix multifunction switch replacement".

Step 1: Open drivers door, remove dash side panel(gets covered by door when door is closed) by placing plastic putty knife between it and the dash and pulling it away from dash,

Step 2: remove kick panel (panel that covers under dash and steering wheel) by removing the screw covered by the dash side panel and two more along bottom edge on each corner,

Step 3: remove the instrument cluster shroud/bezel by pulling out on bottom tabs on both sides of steering wheel column (tabs were exposed by removing kick panel).

Step 4: now for where the cussing ensues...if children are present send them away...

Step 5: now push in on the seam between the top and bottom of the steering column and at the same time pull them apart. Now use extreme cussing and fiddle with the column adjustments and flex and jiggle the covers until you can force them off using care not to break any of the switches or the steering column adjustment lever.

Step 6: disconnect all connectors,

Step 7: remove 2 size 25 torq screws...the bottom one requires a special tool/ bit and a 1/4inch ratcheting wrench or minimal swearing and a open ended wrench,

Step 8: replace switch.

installation is reverse of disassembly with the exception of step being moved to between step 6 and step 5.

S7310n disassemble


This is HP Support, and the download page for the Upgrading and Servicing Guide,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1156509&

On this page scroll down to - Upgrading and Serving Guide, and left-click on it.
(Second file listed)

This is a PDF file download. The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the Upgrading and Servicing Guide, file name, you will Not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds, or so.

Be patient, as the file is downloading in the background.

The Upgrading and Servicing Guide tells you, and shows you, how to open the computer case. (Page 7)

Barring that you are not able to download this PDF file, I will attempt to tell you how to open the computer case. (If you are using a Dial Up network connection, you may be as old as me, before the file downloads)

1) Computer off unplug the power cable FROM the surge protector. (Not shouting)
THEN unplug the power cable from the back of the computer. (Power Supply)

Now unplug all cables connected to the computer.

2) Lay the computer on a towel on top of a table. Keeps the table, and the computer from being scratched.
Lay the computer on it's Right side. (Computer facing you, the right side is to the right. Hey, don't laugh, lol!)

Loosen and remove the three computer cover screws, on the back of the computer's case.

The computer cover that removes is an L shape. It comes down the Left side from the top, and wraps under the bottom.

Looking at the Top/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove on the Top, of the Left side of the computer case. (Top/Left side corner)

Looking at the Bottom/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove from the Bottom, of the Left side.
(Bottom/Left side corner)

Looking at the Bottom/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove from the Bottom, of the Right side.
(Bottom/Right side corner)

After these three screws are removed, the Left side of the computer cover is slid back about 1/2 inch, (1.25cm), and lifted straight up.

BEFORE you reach inside! (Not shouting)

Your body carries STATIC electricity.
Static can fry out, (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside the computer.

TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static electricity.
If you get up, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.

Now, do you wish to disassemble this desktop computer completely, or just remove, and replace a few hardware components?

The above Upgrading and Serving Guide from HP Support tells you, and shows you,

1) How to remove, and replace the computer cover

2) How to remove, and replace Ram Memory

3) How to remove, and replace an optical drive.
(CD/DVD Drive)

4) How to remove, and replace a PCI card, that is in a white PCI expansion slot, on the motherboard.

5) How to remove, and replace the CMOS battery

6) How to remove, and replace a Harddrive

Should you need further disassembly guidance, let me know in a comment.

I have been using Olympus Master 2.03 for a long time. I have the problem of it shutting down usually in edit mode. Is this problem fixed in OM2.2?


Remove the two screws on the right side of the camera (right as camera is facing away from you.)

Remove the screw from the top right side of the camera.

Remove two screws from left side of camera.

Remove the screw from the top left side of the camera.

Remove the screw that is just to the right of the viewfinder.

Pop up the flash.

Lift the top section of the casing off, with the following in mind... There are two spots where the casing interlocks: 1. Rear to the right of the viewfinder -- press in on that area to release it from the lower casing. 2. Front directly under the ME in MEGAPIXEL; press in on that as well.

Remove screw from rear side of tripod mount. (leave the front one)

CAREFULLY remove the screw from the viewfinder adjustment. The adjustment is very delicate and has two tiny plastic tabs that will shear off quite easily -- trust me because I broke mine. If you break yours, be sure to adjust it to the most convenient position (i.e. not macro) before reassembling.

REMOVE THE FLASH CARD!

At thie point, no screws impede the removal of the rear case. The flash card ejector switch, however, is a minor obstacle. It seems best to have it slid all the way to the left as you work the rear cover off (from right to left worked for me.)

Now follow the green ribbon cable from the Cancel/OK/4way switch up to the right of the zoom. Just to the right of the zoom, under that cable, is a screw hole that is more than likely EMPTY. It's not supposed to be. Find the tiny screw that goes in that hole. Either get rid of it, (not vital, IMHO) or if you want to put it back...

To replace the screw:

Remove the two screws holding the top LCD and power switch on.

Lift the rear of that assembly up to disengage its connector, and slide it back. Two LEDs protrude down from the front of it into the front casing, so be careful not to bend them.

Underneath is the socket for the ribbon for the OK/Cancel/4way. Slide it out. Now you have access to the screw hole.

Replace the screw.

Re-insert the ribbon. Make sure it is in all the way and straight.

Tile the top control board back into place, pressing it down into its socket.

At this point I inserted a battery and tested to make sure the rear and top controls still functioned. You may want to play it safe and not do this while all of the guts are exposed, but the risk is probably minimal. Do it at your own risk though.

Replace the two screws for the top control assembly.

Temporarily press the flash down and make sure the white switch at its rear is in the right place and won't get smashed when you reassemble!

Seat the compactflash ejector slide switch onto the bottom of the camera, making sure its points left, and that its two adjacent tabs straddle the metal tab on the CF slot. It's easiest to reassemble when it is slid left, so slide it there.

Replace the rear cover, tilting it on from left to right.

Insert a CF card and make sure the release switch works.

Make sure the hinge pin for the CF cover hasn't slid out, and that the cover snaps into place.

Replace its 2 long silver screws on right side of the rear cover.

Replace two shorter silver screws on left side of the rear cover.


Replace the longer silver tripod mount screw.

VERY CAREFULLY insert the viewfinder adjustment into the viewfinder, making sure its delicate tabs are in the slots of the viewfinder.
Reinstall the long black screw that holds it in place.
(If you break this, make sure to adjust the viewfinder to an optimal (infinity?) position before replacing the back cover.)

Replace the top cover while holding the flash release switch back.
Note the two points from earlier that snap together.

Test the flash release.

Replace the two screws on either side of the top cover and the one in the rear. These are all the same size.

How to replace light bulb in Quasar microwave oven model MQS1236H


Could that be MQS1263H?

Either way, this owner's manual may be close enough.

If it's not addressed in the manual, and there's no obvious cover on the side or back, then you'll have to remove the cover of the oven to change it.

If it's an owner the range type, you can likely get to and replace the light by just removing the grille or possibly the control panel assembly.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's a counter top unit, you will need to remove the outer cover and look for it near the magnetron cooling duct on the right side.

Before doing any disassembly, please see these files: safety disassembly.


Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

You can also order Panasonic parts here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Ice Maker Overfills With Water


Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

I need a service manual for the Dimage z2 Digital camera


Hi,

Right, this is the info that you need. To remove and replace the battery door you need to follow 15 steps in the correct order, they are:

Remove the two screws (above lens) that hold on the flash cover.
Remove the flash cover
Remove the three screws on the view finder cover
Remove the view finder cover
Remove the two screws on the side of the battery compartment
Remove the two screws in the middle of the base of the camera
Remove the sliding cover on the left hand side of the lens
Remove the single screw on the left hand (curved) part of the camera case
Remove the single screw on the bottom left hand side of the casing
Remove the trim piece on the right of the camera next to the lens, the top has a sticky pad under it so will be difficult to lift up.
Remove the screw behind the trim plate
Remove the back casing

The flap should now be replaceable, if you do not feel comfortable with this then get a professional shop to do it.
