How to change image transfer belt unit on konika minolta bizhub c550

Transfer belts for the C550 series models are normally replaced by technicians. If you order the belt to install yourself, you turn off main power, open right side cover, locate guide plate under current belt, loosen thumb screw and remove plate, remove 2 screws securing the belt locks, remove front cable support on right side cover to lower cover, then pull belt out right side of machine. Install new belt in reverse order.
I would recommend a trained technician as the belts can become easily damaged.

If all you want to do is remove/replace memory and hard drives no teardown of the is needed. Power down and unplug the computer.
*Remove the side cover. With a standard retail computer this can be a bit confusing; some have two screws on the rear of that side and the cover pops off. Others have hidden snaps or catches and the side comes off.
*Hard drives have either side screws holding them in, or some such as older Dells have plastic tabs that you gently pull out and the drive is free. Unplug the two cables on the drive.
*Memory: there are two small thumb snaps on each end of the memory stick that you push down and the memory pops free. Be careful replacing the sticks! Carefully line up the slot on the mounting socket on the motherboard with the plastic ridge on the stick, and press down firmly, first on one end and then on the other. You will see the small thumb snaps pop up as the stick settles in to the slot. Make sure the thumb snaps are fully upright, same as originally were.

Powerspec b820. How do I add a new HDD

>Power down, and unplug the computer.
>Remove the Left cover (when facing the front); there are 2 thumb screws top & bottom on the rear. They go through the black edge of the cover and thread into the case. The side cover pops off.
>Locate the hard drive, unplug the two SATA cables (power and data) from the hard drive; leave them plugged into the motherboard.(see picture)
>There are two screws that hold the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) in the bay; remove them. There may be two on the other side (sometimes not). If so, you will have to remove the other side cover in order to access them for removal.
>The HDD will slide out the rear of the bay.
>Slide in the new one, reset the screws, replace the cables, and put the side cover(s) back on.
You're done and ready to format and install your operating system.

I cannot take the side cover off of the tower. I have removed the two thumb screws and tried to slide the cover back over the tab, but it won't budge. It has the hand holds, like my HP, but seems to have...

I don't think so, only has 2 thumb screws, try taking off the right and left side panels.

They can be hard to take off some pressure is needed. Use a large flat screw driver and slip it between the rear of the chassis and on the flat of the side panel.

Where the side panel is bent over the rear of the chassis.
Little bit on top then go to middle then go to bottom.

How do I remove the CD/DVD drive from this computer? The layout inside is different from many desktops.

just pop off the colored plate and the clips are on the side. the drive will slide right out.
(1) take off the left side cover, (2) near the front, at the bottom of the internal drive cage is a plastic lever, flip it down, (3) now open the front plastic CD holder cover (the bottom gray plastic thing), (4) there are two finger holes at the bottom of the top plastic cover - pull the top cover loose (note if you're scared to put a lot of pressure on it, you can use a small flat screwdriver through those holes to lift back the two tabs holding the cover on), (5) with the top cover off, pinch in the two plastic tabs on the side of the drive you want and pull it forward (note disconnect the IDE cable (and audio if there is one) before pulling the drive too far out), (6) pull off the two side rails from the old drive (they just push in and pull out) - but note which rail comes off which side (I'm not sure if they can be inserted upside down or not, so just keep track of which one goes on which side), (7) push the side rails onto the new drive (note you have to really push hard on the metal part of the rail to seat it properly - you'll know it's not seated if the drive doesn't slip in easily), (8) slip in the new drive & connect the IDE and power (and audio if there is one)cables (9) install the top plastic frame, flip up the lock inside the case, then close the bottom CD cover thing, (10) enjoy the new drive. hope this helps you and please vote for me

Have tried following instructions but cannot get back off to insert battery - nothing budges and am reluctant to push/slide cover too hard. Is there a trick to this?

There is three tangs that hold the battery cover in place. You can push with 2 fingers on each side at the bevel area on both side of the camera len. You could also bring you phone to your local service provider to ask them to remove the cover for you.

Bosch SGVV53E03GB/55 cannot get panel door off

I have an SGV53E23 so don't know if this will help. My door is screwed but also held in place by 2 double sided sticky pads about half way down. They stick like the proverbial so try easing the door off one side at a time and look down to see if you can see any sticky pads. If so firm but gentle easing will get the baby off.
