Can I reverse the door?


Janet,
Most of the time you can. If you look on top of you refrigerator, and you see some button covers on the side opposite from your hinge, you should be able to reverse the door. Second, open the doors and see if there are button covers on the face of the door frame opposite the hinge. If you have both, you should be able to change them. You usually will need a Phillips screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver and usually a 3/8" socket or nut driver. Start with the freezer door and take the hinge loose on top and swing the door open and lift up on it and remove it. Next take the middle hinge loose so that the top of the refrigerator door is loose and you can then lift up on it and remove it. Take the grill off of the bottom front of your refrigerator and you will see where the bottom hinge is located. Remove the hinge and move it to the opposite side and then loosen the swivel pin and move it to the opposite hole and re-tighten. On the middle hinge you will need to turn it over from the direction it was originally mounted so that you can re-install it. You will also need to switch some pieces on the bottom of each door to the opposite sides so that each door will operate properly. Once all pieces are switched, including the handles, just re-assemble in reverse order that you took it apart. Hope this helps!

LG vx8350r hinge is broken on right side. Should I look for repair parts or a replacement phone? My wife like a simple phone and would keep this model if I can get it fixed


My VX8350 broke on the right side too. Actually it cracked and the pieces, 2 if I remember correctly, kind of were just hanging there (in other words I did not loose any pieces of plastic). I did a very careful repair and it has held now for about 1.5 years with no problems and I've even dropped the phone about 4 times or more since the repair.

I used the CA glue, (cyanoacrylate glue or some know it as instant glue). But be careful so you do not glue your hands to the phone. Use VERY LITTLE glue cause it WILL wick into places you do not want it to go. Lastly, you have to index the metal piece in the hinge (use a hefty pair of tweezers) before gluing so the spring with work correctly and hold the phone either open or closed. If you error on the indexing, try to error on the side which will keep your phone tightly closed when closed and just barely short of fully open when open. That way you won't be catching the closed phone on things with it hanging partially open. It doesn' t cause any problems being just a tiny bit short of fully open.

So, open the phone, carefully tilt the two halves to expose the metal hinge, index the hinge, carefully rotate the two halves back to their proper position and carefully test the opening and closing action. If it's good, or good enough, then put the chunk(s) that broke loose back into position and while holding everything in place put a TINY bit of CA on one of the cracks. This should setup very quickly (hence the name instant glue) and if you can still remove your finger from the phone, do so, and put a tiny bit of CA on any other areas or other cracks where the glue did not wick to. Remember to use very little glue for this or you'll be sorry and your phone won't work. If you did this properly, your phone will now open and close like it did before...or very close to it. Good luck.

Need to replace screen hinges


Tools Needed Fine Phillips screwdrivers, two sizes; a fine flathead screwdriver; a big heavy-duty set of locking pliers to get a grip on the barrel of the fine screwdrivers in two instances; screen wipes; a clean working surface in which you won't lose any screws.
Lesson Learned The method I should have used:
  • Shut down the computer.
  • Unplug AC power cable.
  • Use the sliding tab to remove the battery.
  • Close the LCD screen as best as you can. Flip the laptop upside down. Look along the left and right edges, close to the LCD hinges, for a screw on each side; mine were marked F10. Remove these two screws, which look fairly insubstantial.
  • Flip the laptop back over, as if you were going to be using it. Open the screen fully (180 degrees) so it's pointing up at your ceiling.
  • Spin the laptop around such that the right side is just off the edge of the table. There's a big plastic piece, actually two colors, occupying the last 2 1/2 inches (60 cm) of the laptop toward the hinges; mine has a small microphone hole near one end and a line of buttons for power, Web browser, etc.
  • Use your thumb from underneath to pry off the edge; the whole piece will begin to lift up. Work it out, being careful to note the two big semi-circular pieces that have to lip up around the laptop hinges. Set this piece carefully aside, and be nice to it -- it has a number of buttons.
  • You should be seeing a small green circuit board where all your buttons were. A single Phillips screw is in the middle; remove a surprisingly long screw and set it aside. GENTLY remove the green circuit board, by lifting up slowly from the right; a small silver plastic tab will keep the board from lifting up directly on the left.
  • Underneath, you should now see a relatively heavy wire with a connector coming from the left LCD hinge. Use the flathead screw driver to gently pry up one edge of the connector slightly, then the other edge. Pry a couple more times until it seems loose, then lift up by the cable.
  • Your LCD is now held by just one small wire bundle and whatever's left of your hinges. Go after the wire first.
  • Just above your keyboard, you should see two Phillips screws that actually hold the keyboard in. Remove this -- and don't be afraid, because they're very stubborn. I had to use the small Phillips screwdrivers and a locking wrench clamped on them to get enough of a grip to loosen these. Keep pushing down so you don't strip the screws. This was the hardest part of disassembly for me. Set the screws aside.
  • The keyboard slides up -- not in the sense of toward your face, but toward the laptop hinges. Slide it a short distance and you can then flip it upside down.
  • Follow that last wire coming from your LCD, which routes under the keyboard. On the 4652lmi (lets hope your model is somewhat similar), it's the wireless antenna. Two connectors hold it to the card; they pry up, but not particularly easily. Note which side goes to which; the white wire (aux) was on the right for mine.
  • When the connectors are loose, unroute the wire, freeing it up to the hinges.
  • This is probably a good time to slide the keyboard back into place and turn the screws a couple of times.
  • You should now have the LCD free, except for the remaining hinges themselves.
  • At the extreme edges of the corners, you'll see a triangular shaped piece of metal. That's the base of the hinge; a single screw on each now holds it in. Remove the screws. Lift the LCD straight up from the main body of the laptop. (Stuck? You -did- remove those screws from underneath in the first step, right? I didn't.)
  • Put the body of the laptop aside. You can now focus entirely on the LCD package itself.
  • At the top of the screen are two rubber caps, indented somewhat from the corners. Use your flat screw driver to scrape these away. No, you can't really reuse 'em, but at least the screws underneath are black. Leave the screws in place for a few moments.
  • Toward the bottom corners of the screen are a couple more covers made of mylar, like a balloon. Scrape them from the bottom edge with the screw driver. These you surely can't reuse.
  • Undo the four Phillips screws that you've now exposed.
  • Starting at one corner, -gently- slide the flathead screw driver into the bezel, the giant black plastic ring, around the LCD screen. Start to loosen the bezel, using fingers, screw drivers and prayer to work it loose without cracking it. If you get stuck on one direction, go in the other for a time. Once it's free, the bezel simply lifts straight up. Set it aside, and make sure you don't put anything on top of it.
  • Only do one hinge at a time. The hinges run along the edge of the LCD panel itself and wrap around at the top.
  • One heavier screw holds on the hinge at the bottom, on the innermost of two holes in the tab. Remove this screw.
  • Four smaller screws run along the edges of the hinge. Remove -- being careful not to slide 'em under the LCD, or drop 'em into your carpet. You may need to use two screwdrivers or a screwdriver and a thumb to lift them away from the LCD case.
  • The hinge should lift directly up. Set it aside, so you can show all your friends what a wonderful laptop technician you are later.
  • The new hinge should drop directly in. It won't. It's got to stay very close to the LCD panel, inside of a number of alignment tabs sticking up from the edge of the case. At the top of the case, a hole in the hinge part has to slide onto a small plastic part that sticks up. On the bottom, it has to slide into position on top of the two screw holes.
  • Try to put in one of the four side screws. They won't go. Use the small flathead screwdriver to gently, gently lift the LCD screen very slightly until you can put in the side screws.
  • Replace the screw on the bottom tab, with the screw on the inside hole.
  • Repeat for the other side of the LCD panel.
"Assembly is the reverse of disassembly." Yeah.
General Cautions
  • Make sure your antenna and LCD wires go through the designated holes near the hinge openings; don't pinch them when you put the bezel on.
  • The bezel will snap into place, seemingly by making lots of snapping noises. It probably won't be snapped into place in the right places. If one of your four LCD panel cover screws doesn't go in, you probably need to remove the screw completely and put pressure on the bezel again to re-snap it.
  • Remember the lower hinges have to drop down into the base of the laptop. Secure them with one screw on the top ... and, as your very last step, put in the less substantial screws from the bottom of the laptop.
  • The wireless card connectors are tough to put on. If you get them in position, you can use the back of a fine screwdriver to snap them into place.
  • Remember to open your screen 180 degrees before putting on the large plastic piece with the buttons and lights. Don't force the hinge cover parts through your wires; that would be, in technical terms, bad.
  • As the final step, close the laptop, flip it upside down, place the two remaining hinge screws from underneath.

I have the same gas cap problem?


with no fuel in the tank and the fuel cap removed turn it over into you hand (A white towel below your hand may help catch any loose pieces) It is a vented cap and the part of the mechanism has fallen inside. It can be reinstalled once you recover all the pieces. A slotted metal washer and something containing a rubber one way valve. reistall the valve then slowly turn the washer until it drops into the cap. Put a screwdriver into the slot and turn until it feels solid. Lou

Dishwasher ''soft drop door'' mechanism came apart - door now drops


I had a similar issue as described by mc1bean. One day my Jenair dishwasher door just fell down. The right side spring was fine. The left side spring was still hooked into the door hinge but the cable was laying on the floor in 2 pieces. Over time it wore down and broke. I ordered just the soft drop cable. Now I could not find any installation instructions how to install the soft drop cable. After a few tries I think I got it right. Here are the instructions for hooking up the right side spring with the cable. The spring has to be hooked into the door hinge at the notch closer to the door. The end of the cable with the hook has to be hooked into the other side of the spring. The cable should lead from the bottom around the pulley up to the door hinge again. Now the other end of the cable has to be hung into the door hinge on the notch further away from the door. There is some slack, but it is not quite enough for the cable to get over the pulley when in rest position and undo itself.
I hope this helps others who have the same issue.

"Bolt" replacement on Razor Phone


Be very carefull with the phone. The main cable runs through that left side.

Look on Ebay for a Left hinge pin for the V3. Also knows as the left knuckle.

Make sure you look for the V3. Not Razr.

If your speaker goes out, or you lose display before you get the Knuckle, you need to get a keypad flex also.

If not, get the Knuckle, and it just slides in. MAKE SURE before you pop it in that there are no pieces of the old one in there and that you don't pinch that cable.

I can fix it for you if you send it to our business, but if you're careful, you shouldn't have a problem.

The displays on my Motorola V6 Razr have gone blank and I can't make or receive calls. This started after a very light drop, flat on it's back


The case had become slightly warped. The lefthand side of the display hinge is also the main earth/ground contact for the display and this contact was no longer solid. There is a small gold plated contact that mates with the centre of the hinge pin.
Unfortunately, the phone body required a little bit of squeezing to make the contact good again. I used a quickgrip type builders clamp to apply just a small amount of pressure to the case. The phone is now fully functional.

Tries To Come on, But Screen Will NOT Light Up!


hi there.
the problem your having is caused by a ribbon that connects the screen and the mainboard in the phone.
the ribbon seems to have either come loose or detached.other than that being a problem it will almost certainly be a screen issue where the lcd has burnt out.
but in my professional opinion it will almost certainly be a ribbon issue

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side


The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!
