Cracked Plastic Molding/Frame

There is a crack in the plastic on the lower left of the frame around the screen. What I would like to know is if the crack is structural or significant in some other way that would impact the functioning of the TV - or shorted its life span.

Of course it would.the crack weakens the integrity of the frame causing it to collapse soon.if you have still warranty on it, take it back to where you bought it and get something better.

How do i get to the blend door on 2005 kia amanti

Here's some info: `Driver's side of the heater will not heat. The temperature mixture door is not opening because the linkage has fallen out of the retainer clip. The clip is brittle and has cracked. You can replace this clip. Spend $5 on some new rod clips for your temperature actuator motor. The part number is 9721438000 (Holder-Linkage rod) about $2.25 each. It is part number 17 on the image attached.

Disconnect the battery negative terminal with a 10mm wrench. DO NOT remove the radio and console. It is a total waste of effort on early Amantis. It could cause an error in your radio, already a weak link in an Amanti.
Remove the lower panel under the steering wheel. The screws are in the left side access panel. Use a small flat bar to remove the press plugs from the left console side panel. Pop off the left console side panel, then slide it back and remove it from the cab, store all removed parts in the trunk, safe from harm.
Use a ten millimeter socket to remove both upper and lower cross bars under the instrument panel. The lower one fastens with two nuts, the upper one four bolts. Remove the bolt from the console frame member and pry the plastic plate from the metal frame. Once the plastic is no longer reinforcing the console frame arm, bend the metal arm towards the steering wheel enough to get the magnetic Philips screwdriver shank straight into the actuator motor bracket screw.
Use a 6" shank magnetized Philips driver to remove the three screws that secure the actuator motor bracket and the axle shaft from the cam. Then remove the axis screw from white nylon plastic cam. One of the metal arms will be loose, because the clip has aged and cracked. Carefully unclip the other control rod and remove the cam. The new clips unfortunately may also crack, so you may want to order an extra one. The white plastic motion converter cam has a clip at both ends. Use a small needle nose pliers to remove them both, then install the two new clips exactly in the position the old one came out. Replacing one is folly; replace both. All of these plastic clips are ten years old, so they may all be at the end of their useful life. Before you put the support and panels back on, observe that the heater door actuator functions properly when you change drivers temperature on heater control panel. Reassemble in reverse order of disassemble. Wipe down all surfaces with mild detergent on a soft cloth to remove fingerprints and dislodged dust.
This process may also reveal an opportunity to clean the drivers side carpet.

Broken laptop screen

There is nothing more frustrating than a broken laptop screen. Whether you have dropped your laptop or stepped on it,once the screen is cracked it has to be replaced. Having the screen repaired may cost you almost as much as a new laptop. Purchasing a new screen from the manufacturer can also be expensive. Taking the time to look online at computer message boards or resellers can help you to find a reasonably priced screen. By following a few easy steps, you can replace your cracked screen and have a functioning laptop in an afternoon.

Determine what model laptop screen will fit your laptop. Ordering a screen directly from the manufacturer can be almost as expensive as buying a new laptop. Look at online computer message boards, auction sites and retailers to find less expensive options. Disconnect any power source, including the battery pack, from your laptop before you begin. Locate and remove the four to six screws that hold the bezel, or plastic frame cover, in place. The screws sometimes have small plastic or rubber covers over them. Pull the plastic bezel away from the screen cautiously, working around the edge. Some bezels snap in and out of place. A small flat-head screwdriver may be helpful in prying the edge of the bezel away from the screen. Pull the screen forward gently. You will find two main wires behind it. The ribbon-like wire, or video cable, is usually taped in place. Remove the tape and disconnect the video cable from your broken screen. Remove the broken screen from its metal frame. Connect the new screen to the video cable and pop it into the metal frame. Replace the tape, plastic frame and screws. Power up your computer and test your new screen. Hope this helps.

    2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
    3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
    4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
    5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
    6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
    7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.

    The protective screen cover to our Hitachi model 51uwx20b is cracked. (collided with a Wii controller!) I know I can replace the plexiglass but do not know how to remove the broken one. Can someone give me...

    Most of the Hitachi's have to be removed from the front; remove the speaker grill assembly(it usually pulls off and is held in place with plastic pegs. Once it is removed locate at the bottom edge of the screen; remove several screws(left to right) that secure it. Most of these frames are snapped in--held in place and you need to start on the lower left and then right side to pull them free---some are in very tight---take your time and pull from bottom first and then sides--a few also have a notch on top which means when the bottom and sides are free you have to lift the frame up and out a bit to get the entire unit free. They go back the same way(top edge first) and if you find the inside of the frame has some metal posts you need to tap the frame back once it is in position.

    I do this here for free so if this helps you give me a vote here. If you have questions let me know here.

    Repalce Door handle on GE Profile model number SCA1000DBB03

    There're some half a dozen or so small screws securing that frame to the door face. These screws must be removed. Then, the frame can be pried out by releasing the plastic snappers (with a flat screwdriver) while in the same time gently helping the frame to detach from these snappers' hold and the door face. It's a tidious, somewhat annoying task. The snappers may and will even likely break in the process, but aren't needed for the frame to be resecured to the door face after the handle is replaced. Note that the broken ends of the handle must be held with a pair of pliers or a flat screwdriver needs to be inserted bewteen each of them and the hole, or the ends will turn with the screws. This is because the metal screws' grip of the plastic handle broken ends is very strong and will otherwise won't get separated.Once the above is accomplished, reassembling the door is a brease.

    P.S.: The dual end latch may interfere somewhat with the job and can be removed for the prtocess to be undertaken without it disturbing. It's easy to remove and replace that latch, including its spring.

    Jeez! You posted this in January! I wonder if this is even still an issue for you.

    Well, what you DON'T do is take out absolutely every screw you can see and then pull the damn thing apart, nearly rendering it useless -- like someone I know nearly did....

    I can only help you as far as getting the LCD off/exposed. I dropped my camera the other day and discovered my cracked LCD screen.

    You say you've taken all 6 screws out. That's good. There are two MAIN (sort of hidden) screws on the bottom of the LCD screen itself -- these hold the frame of the LCD to the shell into which the frame fits. If you look closely at the LCD screen, you'll see there's a plastic frame around it. This is actually sunken into an outer shell which encases it.

    Turn the LCD screen around so that the glass faces outward and fold it flat against the camera -- LCD facing outward instead of inward (the silver Panasonic logo should be against the camera body). Now you have a flat surface to work with.

    The whole LCD screen mechanism is sandwiched around the pivot point. I took two flat blade eyeglass screwdrivers (you know, the real small kind) and started prying at the pivot point. As you work one bigger flat blade into the pivot point and pry up, use the other screw driver to keep the plastic frame still pryed up in place while you reposition the other screwdriver, continuing to "walk" the screwdrivers carefully around the perimeter of the frame. It won't be too long before you'll see that just off of each corner of this plastic frame there are small tabs which should easily pry away from the plastic "Panasonic logo" shell.

    The LCD then sort of pops out of the shell and dangles by a ribbon connector.

    I don't have any clue where to go from there, tho. I haven't purchased a replacement screen yet.

    May I ask: Where did you buy your replacement LCD from? Do you know how to reattach a new one?

    I hope this helped.

    Thanks in advance!

    No, I believe that screens are made of glass or plastic. If its broke, its broke. If you can see half, at least you can kind of frame shots. Then you can put them on your computer, as the screen will not affect this (unless whatever cracked the screen wrecked the photo-taking mechanism).
