Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

4 Answers

Cracks in case around hinges.

The tightness of the springs in my cover has caused the top cover to crack from the hinges to the sides and has caused the bottom piece to be unlevel. Because of this a Disc will not operate properly.

Anyone else having this same problem?????

    Mine has also cracked on the cover by the hinges.

    Same as others and apparently many more that I have found on the net....the casing has cracked around the hinges. Now going back to the retailer to lodge a complaint under the Sale of Goods Act as this inherent fault has occurred within six years of purchase. Bad design and faulty goods!

    i have acer aspire 3610.mine cracked and went back to acer for repair. but 10 month on it as cracked in the same place.bad design and faulty goods.what can we do.

    I have exactly the same problem, where as the back of the screen has cracked on both hinges so much so that parts of the plastic cover are coming off and exposing the inner side of the screen.


    Its such a big design fault, along with many others. Not the mention the terrible build quality and the flexibility of the plastic, especially on the underside next to the CD drive. 


    The CD drive goes through stages of working and not working and the laptop, even when placed on a hard surface very easily overheats. In order to keep the laptop cool, you must place 1/2 of the laptop (the 1/2 with the fan) over the edge of the desk.

    Mine cracked around hinges when I changed the screen. put too long of screws back and it would'nt tighten all the way so it cracked on the left hinge. Other than that it works great wish there was an easy fix.

Depending on the country you are in,I'm from New Zealand.
the only solution I have found for the hinge cracks is to replace the plastic mouldings,both top and bottom,depending on damage
Add some lubricant on the moving parts of the hinge and this may free up the hinge (movements wise)

Failing that try Acer NZ Spare Parts Division (www.dove.co.nz) or Trade Me (www.trademe.co.nz)

If Acer is outside warrantee,you could buy an old acer same model and strip it down for the parts and dispose of the balance when its all sorted.

Good luck with this one ,Let me know of you outcome Thanks

The lid to my whirlpool cabrio top loading washing machine will not open completely???


Hello. How old is your washer? Is there rust around the bleach dispenser near the left side hinge? What probably has happened is the hinge assembly underneath the top cover has rusted from the contact with chlorine and or fumes. These washers are notorious for rusting at the hinges, especially near the bleach dispenser. The parts involved are:
left hinge arm--w10389421
right hinge arm--w10389240
left hinge spring assembly--w10358931
right hinge spring assembly--w10358932
top cover--w10391067--if this needs to be replaced, call for service--it's a solid hour to 90 minute job for an experienced tech! You have to transfer ALL THE PARTS to the new cover and it's INVOLVED--trust me! If there is rust around the bleach dispenser and underneath the top cover, you might check your serial number with Whirlpool to see if you can get a new top cover for free covered by a service bulletin dealing with rusting. To raise the top cover, remove the top screws from the hinges on the rear of the washer holding down the top cover. Then, remove the screw and metal plate protecting the wire harness and pressure hose and set it aside. Next, from the front, slide the top cover forward 1/2 inch and lift up. Have a friend assist you in holding up the top cover. You can now access the hinges mounted underneath, check for rust, and also see how the suspension rods are mounted(they are very easy to remove since there is a slot in each rod holder located at each corner at the side of the tub near the bottom. You would pull up on the tub, release the top of the rods first, then reach down and unsnap the plastic clips(2) in the center of each holder. Use a headlamp or flashlight to see. The rod will drop down and can be removed through the slot. Reverse the procedure to install.
Also, in case your suspension rods get worn out(the tub has a hobby horse "bouncy" movement), the part number for the set of 4 is w10368625. The proper way to check the rods is to place your hands on the right and left side of the tub ring(the plastic cover over the basket) and shove smartly down and release--the tub should grip going down and pull coming up--no springy movement--just like shock absorbers on a car. It should come up and settle. If it has any bounce at all, the rods are worn--symptoms will be increased out of balance errors or the washer might start banging during spin. I hope this helps you. If you are hesitant about performing any of the repairs above, please call for service!

Can the battery case cover of an Olympus SP550 uz be easily obtained & easily replaced?


The cover on the camera is cracked or the battery case is cracked. If it is the battery that is cracked replace it immediately. If its the camera attachment that is cracked Gorilla Tape works wonders :)

DO NOT USE THE PHONE IF THE BATTERY CASE IS CRACKED!

Left hinge broke on lexmark pro 905


Not a perfect fix, but this is what I did: There are 2 spring-loaded pistons located on the printer side of the hinge that cause this problem. I think there should be another piece of plastic that holds the top of the printer hinge down on these springs, but when this hinge is gone, the top of the printer is held upward by them. If you use some pliers to gently pull these spring-loaded pistons upward, you can easily pull them out, followed by the springs they cover. Once removing these, the top of the printer lies flat. The top is still unstable, but mine will now feed paper just fine and closes. Hope this helps! WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB1100RHC2) is leaking from bottom right corner and it appears there are small hairline cracks on the plastic tub. Is there a way to repair them?


Hello - Do you notice if the dishwasher have deflectors installed in the bottom left and right corners of the tub gasket channel? If so, confirmed that they are properly installed and present. In case that it is not, they may possibly need replacing. However, from what you have described it sounds like the springs or hinges may possibly be damaged, or gasket not sealing properly. I would strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

1 key does not spring back when it is pressed and 1 key has a bit of resistance when pushed


The elektrotanya website link proposed in the other solution here did not work for me. So with a similar sticky keys problem on my YDP-113 yamaha digital piano, i just started taking it apart.

I found that the problem was that the sticking keys actually had small cracks at the hinge end. See attached photo for a picture of the hinge end of the key. The cracks are very small and hard to see, but if this is your problem, you will see it in a good light. Having the key apart will also allow you to clean the sides well in case there has been a bubble gum attack or similar problem.

After learning that replacement keys are extremely expensive (like $15 per key...) I decided to move the bad keys to the highest and lowest notes on the keyboard (88 key keyboard so there is some seldom used territory). The center several octaves are now free of sticky keys and this is good enough for now.

The procedure on my YDP-113 was:
1. Remove black screws from back panel of unit to allow top to slide forward and then lift off. Set aside.
2. Roll the roll top all the way closed and then simply lift up to remove. Set aside.
3. Remove the six screws which attach the roll top gear rail (3 screws on each side panel). Set aside the gear rails.
4. Remove 2 screws in the key top bracket, and 1 screw from each end of the key top. "Key top" is my name for the small strip which lies along the top of the keys. If you have an official or better name, please share.
5. Remove the 10 or so large screws and two small screws which hold the keyboard panel down in the unit.The keyboard should now be able to slide a few millimeters toward the back of the unit.
6. Remove 1 screw to take out the power switch panel. The front of it hooks in with a tab, so slide it back and then it will lift out.
7. Careful now. I felt this was the one operation where I had an opportunity to ruin the unit if I would have fumbled: Lift the keyboard up slightly and rest its front 'legs' on the front edge of the case. Careful of small wires to not rip them. Careful of the circuit boards that are underneath the keyboard frame. jeff20112011.jpgThe objective here is to allow the keys to come out toward you so that they can be removed and replaced or swapped. You can kind of see in the cracked key end photo, how the keyboard is up and partially out of the unit.
8. You now can do the actual swapping. To remove a key, pry up very gently in back of the key with a small screwdriver. jeff20112011_0.jpgIt will pop up. Then gently work the key around to free it from the return spring without bending that spring. Replace with a new key or swap will a good working key in a little used position. Note that B and E are interchangeable, also C and F. Some other keys also look like they could interchange though I didn't personally try it.
9. Reassemble in reverse order of disassembly.

How to change printer cartridge on Brother Intellifax 1270e


After raising the rear cover (hinged at the back), lift up on two matching plastic levers, one at each side. Raise the print assembly, also hinged at the back. Lift out the print cartridge. Note the arrow molded into the top to show which way the new cartridge should be inserted.

The complete print cartridge is a PC201, and you can buy it from www.brothermall.com if you can't find it locally. They also sell boxes of two or four rolls (PC202RF, PC204RF), if you want to save a buck by refilling your existing cartridge.

If the fax is printing fine on one side, but fades to blank on the other, the problem is not your printing cartridge, but one of the latching levers you lifted to access it. Sometimes one cracks at the hook at the bottom. It still holds the print assembly down, but not tightly enough to print on that side. The crack is invisible until you pry at the hook with a fingernail.

It sounds like the hinge itself is broken. I have a relative with exactly the same problem, her laptop screen became floppy and didnt stay in the upright position. The hinges for the screen are complicated in that they appear to come as a top/bottom part already joined together, and need to be replaced as such. The metal used for the hinges is really flimy and easily snaps. this sounds like what has happened to yours. The problem is that is appears to be not econimcally viable to repair, and your probably better off scrapping it or buying another with say;.. a cracked screen and doing a swap-over of parts to get one fully working one (thats what I did)
