The pieces snap into place if you place them correctly on the keyboard and press down until you hear them click together. You may need to pry one off to see the orientation of the white plastic piece that goes on first. Lay the piece like the one you just looked at and firmly press the key evenly on top of it until you hear the click sound. You may have to rock it a little to get it to fully engage. If it sticks down, take a paper click and gently pry it up and it should work fine.

Logitech speakers static


If you have just purchased these speakers, it is likely a loose piece inside, or the plastic buttons on front vibrating loudly when sound is played.

Quick fix:
Place a piece of tape over the buttons on the front.

Longer fix:
1. Remove both phillips head screws from the back.
2. Remove speaker guard. It is held on with 3 pressure pins. With a small flat head screwdriver, You can get underneath the guard and apply force. The trick, is to focus your net force perpendicular to the face of the speaker. You don't have to be too gentle, but be wary of flexing the plastic guard too much or it may break.
3. Remove both phillips head screws from the front.
4. Open speaker unit and remove two small screws from circuit board.
5. Cut two pieces of soft tissue paper big enough to fill the button housing underneath the circuit board. (The thinking here, is that the tissue will dampen any rattling from the buttons. Don't worry! The buttons will still work).
6. Re-assemble the speaker, taking care to tighten all screws.

Need to replace keyboard on toshiba laptop Att300


Laptops are a great line of computers that offer their users portability. However, one drawback of laptops being so portable is that all of their components are internally attached. Replacing things on a desktop computer can be as easy as unplugging a cord. With laptops, simple things like changing a laptop's keyboard becomes slightly more complicated.

Unplug the laptop's power cord from the wall outlet and remove the internal battery pack. To remove the internal battery pack, simply locate the release button on the bottom of the laptop. This button needs to be held in while the battery pack is slid free from the computer. This button locks the battery in place, so if it is not held in the battery pack will not be able to be removed. Unscrew all of the screws from the bottom of the laptop. All laptops have different amounts of screws holding the external case together; however, there is usually one screw at each corner, and then one or two screws in the center of the laptop. Once all the screws are removed, slide the laptop's hard drive from the computer. The computer's hard drive will generally be located on the left or right side of the laptop; there will be a small symbol engraved into the laptop to denote its location. Remove the screen from the body of the laptop. To do this, remove the two screws from the back of the computer that hold the screen's hinges in place. Once the screws are removed, pull up gently on the screen until the two pegs that held the screen up have cleared the holes in the laptop's body from which they rested. There will be two wires that lead away from the laptop screen so make sure not to pull up so far that they become disconnected. Separate the two plastic halves of the laptop's external case to expose the computer's internal components. Lift up on the keyboard pad and flip it on its face. You will notice a film-like strip that leads away from the keyboard and into the heart of the laptop. Before you can remove the keyboard, you must unscrew the metal piece that covers the computer's motherboard. This piece takes up the majority of the inside of the computer, so it will be very obvious to you when you are looking inside the laptop. Disconnect the keyboard connection after the metal covering from Step 4 has been removed. To remove the keyboard, follow the film-like strip back to where it connects to the computer's motherboard. The end of the connection will be held down by a small plastic tab. Pull up on this tab to release the keyboard connector and simply lift the old keyboard out of the laptop. Connect the new keyboard to the laptop. To do this, simply stick the end of the new keyboard's film-like connector inside the plastic tab that you released to remove the old keyboard. Push the tab back down so that it holds the end of the new keyboard's connector in place. Reassemble the computer by putting the components back in the exact spot you removed them from.

I now have 2 H233H monitors that both have the same Problem. The cheap power switch has failed because the plastic ears have broken off of the button on both of them. Is there some kind of a fix for this?...


I took my soldering iron and melted nylon-plastic to the plastic (nylon) ears and plastic button which is also nylon. I now have a permanent and stronger plastic weld than what was made at the factory.
Repair shop wanted $125 dollars. I fixed it with weed-eater nylon string and soldering iron. Start at button first, after having a small glob of melted nylon on tip of iron. Then spread it to plastic ears, all the way back to the spot where ears attach to black trim piece. Good luck

Braun Series 7 760cc dead after 2 months


Had this same problem with mine. One month after warranty was done with. I ended up opening the thing up and pulled the monster battery out of its socket and put it back in. Worked fine after that. One week and still strong. Another thing I did was to carefully bend up the flat pieces of copper around the battery to make sure they were still getting a good contact with the pins on the cover. Hope this works for you....

  1. The black rubber/plastic cover on the back will pop off if carefully pried apart from the gray plastic. Start around the middle of the razor body.
  2. Once the black piece is removed you will see four screws holding on a plastic cover. These can be removed with a sharp flat head screwdriver.
  3. The plastic cover can then be pried from the razor body. Be very careful though as there is a rubber seal around this to keep water out. I broke mine.
  4. Inside you will see a somewhat large red battery with prongs on either end. Pop it out of its location and wait a couple of seconds. Press it back into position and you should hear a click for both ends.
  5. After this, I took all of the flat copper pieces and gently bent them towards myself (without making them touch of course... this could cause a short and potentially cause the battery to explode).
  6. Replace everything and see how it works... Hopes this fixed it for you and saved you $100-200. Have a good day!
Also... I am not responsible for any damages that may occur.

Broken USB Port compaq presario v5000


The hardware USB ports are identical for both versions. Only the software and hardware controller are different.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron with a fine tip for this job.
You need to dismantle the laptop completelt to remove the motherboard from the plastic case. Take a note of where the screws come from because they may be different lengths. Don't apply excessive pressure on the plastic case else it will break, start from one side and work around each side, the plastic case has catches to hold the halves together.
Start by rmoving the hard drive, CD/DVD drive, battery etc.

How to reattach shutter button


The fix is real easy. No need to take the camera apart.
Order the Shutter Button Release Assembly from Sony. Cost was around $18.00 + tax + Shipping. I received the new assembly in one week.
Note the angle of the old assembly before removing it so that you can line up the new one correctly.
To remove the old button assembly, use a rubber bottle opener to get a good grip. Turn slightly counter clockwise. Then use your fingernail to lift it up. Look inside using a magnifing (sp) glass and find the pieces that broke off, a spring, a small plastic tip and a small snap ring.
Look at the opening and you'll notice two slots, that's where the two little feet will line up. Again using the rubber bottle opener and pressing down slightly, turn the newassembly clockwise. You'll feel it.
Make sure to clean out the pieces that broke off. I couldn't find the spring, now I can't use that little wheel to bring the viewfinder into focus for my eye. LCD is still sharp as are the pictures. Just the viewfinder.
Good luck.
