    Sorry, I thought I put that info in there.

    The computer is an ACER Aspire E380

  • Bad Axe Feb 11, 2008

    Someone else finally advised me that the side panel was probably just stuck and needed a little more effort to slide out.

    They were right and it worked.

    Now my speakers don't work after I plugged them back in.

    Any solutions for that?

  • Bad Axe Feb 11, 2008

    Thanks for trying. This has happened before when i unplug the speakers. There are no instructions that tell me what settings are required to make them work.

    I'll probably have to take the computer back to the store and let the GEEK SQUAD tell me what needs to be done.

    Trust me when I say I am not totally ingnorant. I can read and follow instructions when they are provided.

    If you think I'm unhappy with ACER, you are right. Never again.

    Open it back up and check the front panel wires to see if they are all plugged in, and if plugged in to check if there plugged in correctly

    The speaker's front panel wire has a is hard to miss ! it usually is the widest of the wires and it's also usually marked speaker with a 4 pin female connector. hope this helps.

How do I removed the tailgate door liner panel on a 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara JB?? There is no inner door latch to be removed. We cannot open the rear door as outer handle has broken. Help....many thx


The top bezel pops off. There are usually 2 screws to remove from the top of the bottom bezel on each side. start popping the bottom bezel off the hatch. It won't come out. Screws on the bottom. But you can get if off enough to reach down and grab the latch rod or latch to release the hatch. Yes the latch is at the bottom. And it has levers to move to open the hatch. Once open, remove the screws to remove the bezel, then replace the latch.

4. Lift the front cover of the printer and remove the white rubber bar by pulling the blue lever on right towards you.

Figure 2 - Top view of printer showing the white rubber feed bar with purple attachment

Figure 5 - Bottom view of printer. Image on left is cover to screw. Gently remove ribbon cable to reveal the gold screw beneath

6. Flip the front cover open and gently lift the top of the printer cover. Keep front cover open.

7. Remove the ink cartridges out of their carriage.

Figure 6 - Displays ink cartridge carriage with ink cartridges removed.
Caution: Electrical hazard. Keep hand and metal pieces clear of board or any other electrical wires or parts.

NOTICE: The ink cartridges are all the way to one end. If the X4270 is plugged in, the cartridge carrier is stuck and doesn't move. After further investigation a noticeable small black plastic lever is preventing the ink cartridges from moving. Photo below shows lever up and down (cartridges already moved in image below).

Figure 7 - Shows inside of X4270 and the lever that causes error #1200. Image on left displays lever up. Image on right displays lever down.

8. Push lever down clockwise so it is flush with plastic wall. Refer to image on right in Figure 6.

9. Lift the front cover open (if not already open) and plug in the X4270. Cartridges should move to center as if preparing for replacement.

10. Unplug the X4270 and remove power supply.

11. Remove bottom assembly carefully.

Figure 8 - Displays bottom assembly with lever and spring
Note: The cause of this problem is the spring slides out of place over time, probably because of ink shed on one end of its loop and loop attachment.

Figure 9 - Displays loop attachment

12. Place spring in loop attachment and use hot tip of heated tool to melt top of loop attachment to prevent further errors. Melt top of loop attachment similar of that to a mushroom top.

Figure 10 - Displays fix for jammed carriage.

13. Reattach the lever to the bottom assembly and slide back into place inside the X4270.

14. Plug in and check if operational.

15. Reassemble X4270 using steps 3-7.

How to open gateway 300c desktop


There are several casings. You'll just have to pick one that fits your computer. Before you begin anything. Turn off your computer and remove the power cable. New Midtower Case 1 Look for a release handle on the top of the new midtower case. 2 Push the release handle inward. 3 Swing the case down from the top to open it. Microtower Case 1 Lay the computer down so that the left side is face up. 2 Locate two cover release levers on the back of the case toward the middle of the left side panel. 3 Squeeze the release levers together, then lift the panel up, swinging it away from the back of the case. Old Midtower Case 1 Lay the computer on its side, so that the left side panel is face up. 2 Remove any retaining screws along the left side of the back of the case that are holding the panel in place. These screws may be removed with your fingers. 3 Locate two release levers at the top and bottom of the back side of the case, and push them away from each other. 5 Swing the panel up and away from the case to open it while holding the release levers.

Right deck door will not open.


You have to open the unit up by taking off the screws take the cover off....then you will see 2 arms that the tray slides on , they probably need to be manipulated / moved by hand to free it up and some LIGHT grease run along the track - it's probably just stuck or dirty...try it by pushing down the appropriate part while pressing eject, you will see what i mean, but you need the cover off, be careful with open electronics, maybe ground yourself and ont ever use a piece of metal in there, insulated proper tools only, and BE CAREFUL....if you dont feel comfortable have someone repair it. good luck

The rear hatch seem to be jammed or stuck it wont open at all how can i get it open


Crawl thru the front to the rear of the truck, Remove the two screws on the gate release handle (they are underneath the handle, two philips).
Gently pull on the plastic panel by the release handle, it will come out about 4 inches, it should be enough if you have a small arm (which I have.) I wedged a plastic 20oz bottle between the rear gate and the inner plastic panel, to keep the plastic held out, don't over stress the plastic it will break if its old enough, look down from the window hatch about 5 inches or so and notice the 2" x 3" opening, there is a lever in there that is moved by the actuator, and a piece of plastic (which is what my friends truck needs, if someone has a part number or aftermarket please advise) but if you reach in to that access panel, there is a slide that moves from right (looking at the gate from the inside) to left, moving it to the left (Opens the window)
Apon opening the window, remove the plastic bottle, and open the rear gate hatch, when the hatch is open there are two screws one on the left side of the gate, and on the right side.I hope this helps you out, remember: don't overstress the plastic, strip out the screws, or break the window..
Once you have everything out, you can replace the actuator or fix the wire leads that may have come loose form the rear door actuator keep you from opening the rear window.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya

Want to open my maxtor one touch, any idea of the best way, and what is that small openning at the back


It's a pain but you can do it if you are careful. Remove 2 screws on back panel, then gently remove back panel. Now work on side/front panel (one piece) GENTLY. They have little plastic clips that will pop out if you are careful. The you can remove 2 more screws on side that hold metal halves together. Top comes of clamshell style. Good luck !
