Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I've broken and subsequently lost, the little piece of plastic that slides to the right on the front on the monitor to release the catch when laptop is shut. This means I can only shut the laptop fully if I have a tool to hand to stick in the slot to reopen later. Can anyone advise where I can get a replacement?

To my knowledge, they don't replace those little parts.
You could fabricate one or have one made for you.
The only alternative would be to get a replacement cover for the computer. You might be able to find one cheap on e-bay.

WHY WON'T MY TURN SIGNAL GO BACK TO NEUTRAL AFTER I TURN?


Your turn indicator switch is broken off inside the steering column. There is a little piece of plastic that catches the end of the turn signal switch and releases back to center

Can't fold phil and teds dash,


I successfully fixed this issue today on a 2008 dash stroller. first remove the handle, you will need to drill out the two rivets with a 1/4" drill bit, but don't go too far, don't drill out the plastic on the handle piece. unscrew the four brake cable clips. unscrew the two screws securing the grey release clips. Prop stroller on the handle bar side (put padding underneath so you don't mess up your work surface) and the rear wheels. now get two small bladed screw drivers, you can gradually pry down the internal plastic locking wedge on either side till it releases the front wheel section which folds down. (on the left side which is likely functioning, you can just pull the plastic circular piece down with your fingers, as the internal wire is still connected)
Now grab some vise grips, lock onto the locking wedge and remove the whole mechanism, also remove the foam inside with a screw driver (this likely is what was supposed to keep the tension wire in place). Take the locking wedge mechanism apart. ( you will need to push the steel pin out with a small screw, it does not take a lot of force) Get a small nylon zip tie and secure it around the shaft on the tension wire connecting end of the locking wedge. (this will keep it from ever falling out(pulling through) again. This part (the locking wedges) should have been made out of aluminum or stainless steel and the issue would never occur. You will need to trim the catch end of the zip tie and make sure that it can slide freely inside of the plastic sleeve. now slide off the nylon zip tie and set it aside along with the spring.
Take the circular plastic piece (the 4" part inside that is near the handle piece with slots in it) slide in the tension cable. Slide the other end of the tension cable into the frame from the handle bar side till you can reach the end from the front wheel side. Now slide on the tubular plastic wedge housing and lock it in place to the frame (the detente underneath the frame lines up with the bump on the tubular sleeve), then the spring, then the small nylon zip tie, then the release wedge. Secure the zip tie onto the release wedge shaft and aim the head of the zip tie down so it can slide freely. Put some Vaseline or white lithium grease on the release wedge so it slides well. If the release wedge binds up you will need trim the zip tie head a bit more so it fits.
Next take the removed riveted posts and drill them out with a sharp 1/8" drill bit about 3/8" deep. (Use vise grips to hold onto these guys, as they will get hot, and make sure to use some oil while you drill to keep things cooler. Slide down the plastic circularly plastic pieces (you may need small screw driver to manipulate them down) so you can re-attach the two grey release mechanism brackets.
Re-insert the two formerly riveted brackets through the frame which will locate the handlebar properly. Get two small 1/4" sheet metal screws. Put the black washer back on, apply firm pressure and screw in the 1/4" sheet metal screws into the drilled out posts with a drill.
Re-attach the seat and you are good as new.
Note: The instructions may seem a little tricky, but you can do it.

I can not install the black ink in our HP 3600, is there a trick, I don't want to force it and break something?


on these specific models they have a tendency for breaking off plastic from old toner and when it does its usually jarred in the slot on the right hand side where the toner slides in, look for a small piece of black plastic just laying in the right hand slot. If nothing is there then theres a good possibility that the toner release catch is broken and will need repair which is a pretty deep and entailed job that the average person may find a lil difficult...

Broken catch


what has happened is that the ridiculously flimsy plastic that the catch spring pushes against has snapped off. I tried getting it plastic welded but still too weak finaly I took off the door unscrewed the transparent central part(remembering to keep the little black plastic rod at the top that operates the microswich when the door closes then snapped off a piece of hacksaw blade about15 mm long and put it where the plastic had been. I carefully lifted the end of the spring over the blade and while holding it screwed back the transparent part so that it held the blade in place. Works really well!

On the moniter the brightness window keeps coming upevery second


The buttons sometimes stick on these. You may have to remove the front trim and take out the button set, then clean around them really well.
They are only plastic spring loaded, So the tension can be increased a little by bending it in the reverse direction slightly.
If when apart you find they still seem tight the slot in the front trim that they come through can be enlarged a bit with a small file or exacto knife etc.
To remove the front trim,
Remove the 4 bottom edge screws
These trims SLIDE upwards to release the catches. You will need to lift the top of the trim away from the lcd screens surface a little bit as you slide the trim upwards.

Leaks at the hot water spout during coffee brew


I had the same problem. I ended up taking the coffee machine apart and found that the reason coffee trickles out around the hot water spout is that the two coffee nozzles were partially plugged. Since I Had parts of the coffee machine apart I was able to clean it easily. It may also be possible to clean the assembly using a pick of some sort and clean out the holes of the two normal coffee spouts. Inside it is just a open cavity so gentle poking around and using some steaming hot water may do the trick.
If you want to take the machine apart you need to do the following: 1) take of the warmer plate on the top - 2 storz screws but an allen key works as well 2) take off the top plate of the machine - another 4 or 5 screws - make sure you empty the beans first otherwise you will have a mess 3) remove one screw from the right hand side of the removable coffee ground tray. Once this screw is removed the front panel is free to swing open except for the pipes connecting the front 4) unclip the steam assembly - there are a couple of plastic catches on the top. this will free the steam assembly from the front panel and also free a pipe connections. The steam dispenser pipe will also come free from the steam assembly. 5) remove the coffee pipes from the up and down sliding coffee dispenser. This is a small whitish color clip with 2 pipes connecting into it. The white clip has a little plastic catch on the top that frees it. The front panel should now swing open freely. 6) remove the sliding coffee dispenser from the front door. There are 4 plastic catches, 2 on either side. the whole front sliding coffee displenser now comes free 7) Take the sliding dispenser apart by release the 4 plastic catches on the front curved planel. 8) Inside the sliding dispenser is a white plastic piece that connected to the piping released in step 5. There is a small plastic catch that needs to be pressed while pulling fairly hard on the plastic piece and bending the whole piece. 9) You will now see the plugged spouts. It goes back together really easily.

The problem is that the ridiculously cheap little plastic piece on the door hinge that is supposed to trip the switch that tells the printer that the door is open is either a) broken off or b) no longer aligned so that it pushes the switch all the way. I solved the problem by removing the top cover and gluing the switch open with super glue.

To open the cover, find yourself a small, flat piece of metal (or stiff plastic) about 1/2" wide and a few millimeters thick. (A very flat-bladed screwdriver will do, but I made myself one out of the non-sharp side of a straight-edge razor blade.) Push this into the 5 slots marked with an arrow around the sides and back of the printer (they're toward the bottom of the sides.) Pry up on the cover at the back and then pull straight up on the front. There are two flat vertical pieces that slide into slots at the front that have to come up - they were tough to make come loose, just try not to break them off.

Pick up the electronic control panel that is on the front right of the printer. (You might have to remove the silver piece of plastic at the right front corner. It pulls straight up to remove.) The switch is the little black plastic piece on the left side of the electronic control panel. Push it to the "open" position (opposite the resting position) and glue it in place. Reassemble your printer and voila! no more annoying "door closed" message!

UMD door switch will not open the door


The switch has a small plastic tit that moves a thin metal piece to the side so that the hook on the UMD door is released. If the little tit is broken off it cannot move the metal slide. The metal piece is not likely to break. If it feels like the slide switch is not pushing anything when you slide it, remove it which ever way you see fit. Use a small nail or tack to slide the metal piece inside towards the center of the PSP. This should open the umd door.
