I am trying to insert an ethernet NCI card into back of Sx270. How do you remove casing at rear? There is a green switch that releases the hard disc but no screws to remove back plate.

    Got the back off now but I don't think I can insert a PCI Lan adapter inside so I can connect to my router for BThub broadband 2. Problem has arisen because there is no USB port on the router and it can only connect via ethernet. There is an adapter

    RJ45 connector on the back I/O panel , 10/100/1000 connection already, but it does'nt work. Any ideas...

Optiplex SX270 LED light code


Hello

The LED code you described indicates a memory failure. Remove and re-install all of your memory. If this does not fix the issue, remove all memory and insert one stick at a time until the unit turns on. Replace faulty memory.

Here is the LED Code guide from Dell...

How do I open the case to add hard drive on dell sx270


I would take it to Best Buy, and ask a computer tech there. They're usually knowlegable and more than happy to let you know how, what special tools you might need, etc. Wish I'd opened one so I could tell you, but there's sometimes tricky things the engineers do to make it hard for most people to figure out. They can hide screws under labels, metal or plastic plates, under rubber cushions, you name it. Maybe someone on this site has done it before, but I don't think so, because I've seen others with the same problem.
Good luck!

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.

My Dell Dimension desktop 9150 was running very slow so I shut down the computer. When I pressed the power on button I notice that it was flashing. I pressed the button even holding the power button in...


Hi,
the constant Green, states that the motherboard is getting Power.
The red/yellow would possibly suggest, that the ethernet port has a fault or possible corruption.
Solution:- remove the Power Lead from the Computer Case.
Remove side panel. take out any ethernet-Cable from the rear.
Locate the CMOS battery, round silver Battery on The motherboard.
For 10 seconds, this should reset The bios, to it,s original Default Settings. Replace Battery, side Panel. And power Lead.
You could also try This. Boot with Hard-drive power Cable Disconnected ( this will Eliminate HD Fault ) same for CD/DVD drive et,c.

Extract from nokia 7100 user guide:

Always switch the device off and disconnect the charger
before removing the battery.
The SIM card and its contacts can be easily damaged by
scratches or bending, so be careful when handling,
inserting, or removing the card.

Washer stops mid cycle


OK.. to the back left of your lid, under the top casing, by the hinge.. you have a hook metal bar that activate the lid switch.. hard to describe, but I'll do my best.. use left hand lift up on down on lid.. use right hand, reach under lid and find metal hook.. ok.. push up on lid and right hand push back on metal hook slightly(not to much).. now try closing lid and see if you heard clicking noises.. also, in the future try not to let the lid drop down, that will bend the hook.. hope you got it.. good luck...mike

Insructions needed open cover on specifically sx270 optiplex


Lay the unit DVDRoM face down, and then slide the green 'thingy' (technical jargon) on the back of the unit in the only direction that it will go (should be a diagram on the case itself, to show how...) and at the same time slide the upper casing forward. I have one of these suckers, and it ain't as easy as it could be, but it will move!
Good luck!
