DVD drive/Opening Case

DVD drive is stuck in my Philips 6300. How do I open the case? And yes I've unscrewed the screws but I can't seem to lift the case off, either the sides or the top covering.

In the front cover of the DVD there is a very small hole. straighten out a paper clip and gently insert into hole. the Door will manually open.
The case slides off the frame. It may need a little more pressure to over come the clip pressure.

Open case of samsung writemaster external dvd drive how to


I just had the same problem and this is how to do it:

1: Carefully pry the silver trim off. Begin at the back of the unit. You might need to use a knife or small screwdriver to pry it loose.
2: Unscrew the small philips screws, two on each side.
3: Press the plastic tabs (three on each side) to release the top.
4: lift off the metal cover at the back.

If you need to, you can lift out the optical unit from the front since it's not fastened in any other way than the standard IDE and molex connectors.

Regarding to http://www.fixya.com/support/t9259110-sony_vaio .. how will i remove the case to remove the cooling fan?


Ok, on a laptop you need to get some cups and label them to put the screws in so you will know where they came from. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery then start removing all the screws from the bottom of the laptop. Then remove all the devices from the bottom of the laptop such as the hard drive, the memory, dvd/cd drive, wireless card, etc. Take note of how the wires are on the wireless card, those are the antennas.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slot for screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the device cases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold the keyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but be careful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screws that hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gently lift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift the lcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and the lcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note of any cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift the palmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottom case, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory of where things were.

My ps2 slim is not reading any discs why ?


Hi. Try to clean the lens by using a qtip and alcohol. Here's the procedure on how to clean the lens.

  • 1 Turn the PlayStation 2 over to remove the screw covers. Use the flat head screwdriver to remove the plugs that cover the screws. This reveals several Philips screws. Do not remove them yet. They must be unscrewed in a certain order so that the PS2 opens up properly.
  • 2 Remove the small screws near the control ports, powerboard and DVD drive using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • 3 Remove the long screws from the upper right section. This enables you to remove the cover.
  • 4 Flip the PlayStation 2 over to open it up. Before opening it, ensure the PS2 has had adequate cooldown time. Wait at least one hour after playing the game station before continuing. You do not want to burn yourself on the hot elements within.
  • 5 Open the PS2 carefully so as not to damage the ribbon inside the console. Lift up the case gently and slide the cover off. Notice the big black box that contains the laser lens and DVD drive unit you need to clean.
  • 6 Locate four black, small screws holding the black box down. Remove the screws using a Philips screwdriver.
  • 7 Lift up gently on the cover of the DVD drive. This fully exposes the laser lens.
  • 8 Dip one cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Gently rub around the edge of the lens with the swab. Look for any greasy residue that may be there and remove it. Remove any fuzz. Use gentle pressure so you do not damage the PlayStation's lens.
  • 9 Take a dry cotton swab and dry off any liquid left behind. Ensure there are no cotton fibers left behind on the lens.
  • 10 Reassemble the PlayStation 2. Work backwards from the way in which you disassembled it.

    How to remove the CD rom drive in a HP Pavalon slimline client?


    See the panel on the side of the DVD Drive? remove that by lifting it backwards, it has a black button on top of it, remove it and now you have access to the screws on the side of the DVD drive, after unscrewing there's a button on the opposite side, push it sideways to unlock the drive and push the DVD drive out of the casing. Hope you figure it out.

    How to replace the DVD drive on Acer Aspire 5002


    I actually had to permorm this action yesterday.
    First remove the small strip above the keyboard by unscrewing the three screws at the back of the machine that hold it; then twisting the screen al the way back and lifting it up.
    Second unscrew the keyboard (2 screws) and lift it away (don't detach the cable).
    Third: on the left side under the keyboard unscrew 3 screws that hold the cdrom in place.
    Pull the drive out. The rest (taking the case of the dirve) should be transparent.
    There is nothing on the bottom you have to unscrew!

    Philips hts 3450 home theatre system, dvd in player, won't come


    Before you do what I am about to suggest, understand that doing so will void your warranty with Philips. Find out if the product is still in warranty before proceeding - if it IS in warranty, then get it replaced through Philips (even though it is a simple solution):

    Unscrew the four main screws on the bottom of the main base that are keeping the main unit together. Open up the case, retrieve the disc. Make sure that you do not knock ANYTHING out of place - you must proceed VERY carefully. Rescrew the case. Voila!
