The bottom and top are held not only with screws but with little plastic tabs along the edges. You will have to start in one corner and carefully separate the case. Once you get one tab released, you can see how the tabs are fastened.
I would also check to see if there are several small screws under the battery. This is common.

Ho do I open a Denon remote control unit

Make sure there are no hidden screws , top and bottom of remote snap together, usually top snaps over bottom so you have to slide something between halves and push in on bottom or pull out on top to get them to seperate.

Remove toshiba keyboard

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery. Look inside the battery compartment and see if any screws are there, if so remove them (the keys inside the battery compartment normally holds the strip that is above the keyboard). If you see a screw that has the icon of a keyboard beside it, then that screw holds the keyboard in place. Look along the bottom of the laptop for more screws that have the icon of a keyboard beside them and remove them. In fact you could just remove all screws from the bottom of the laptop just in case you have to remove the palmrest. Remove the screws from the covers that houses the memory and hard drive and check inside them for screws. Sometimes a keyboard screw might be inside them.

Turn the laptop over and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard by gently prying it off with a small flat head screw driver. Be careful because there might be a cable attached to it. If the strip above the keyboard is one big piece that requires the whole palmrest to be removed, then look along the sides and top of the keyboard for little catches that you can push to release the keyboard and it will come out without having to remove the palmrest.

if the you have to just remove the strip at the top of the keyboard, once it is removed there might be screws at the top of the keyboard that hide under the strip to remove. Once the screws are removed, gently try to lift the keyboard out. Small catches on the side might be holding it so you might have to work with pulling one side out first then the keyboard will come out. Be careful, there is a cable under the keyboard that plugs into the board. Remove the keyboard cable from the board then lift it all the way out.

Hoover telios 1600 dismantling

Remove the 4 screws in the Dust Bag compartment.

Remove the Power button and Cord-rewind botton. This involves using a screwdriver or knife to open/undo a plastic clip located under the bittons near the gril in the top-centre-back of the hover.
When holding the clip back, slide the button towards the bottom of the hover (IE: away from the bag compartment) till it pops out (this can be fiddley).
This will then reveal 4 more screws (within the springs and near the grill).

Then prise the hover open to reveal the motor and power-switch.

I need to try to replace my cooling fan and heat sink, I have tried to get the back of the computer off, I have removed the HD and battery and all the screws, but it still seems to be held by something...

Actually there is a lot yet you have to open. Check the battery compartment for hidden screws, also there should be a cover near the top by the screen that will come up. You are going to have to remove that and then remove the screws holding the keyboard down and the Hinge Screws. After that most likely you will need to remove the screws holding the motherboard down so you can lift the motherboard out so you can access the cooling fans and coils. Acers like to use built in clips that are molded into the body of the laptop as well, look for some of those.

Trying to remove the bottom of my toshiba A135-S4427, I have removed all the S3, S6 and S8 screws and the entire outside edges are loose but something near the battery compartment inside is still holding...

There are usually two or three flat head 3's ( I think 3's) in the battery compartment. Can be hidden under a tape.
Can also just be the front tabs on the case haven't released.

Here is a link to a pictorial dis-assembly guide. If a picture is worth a thousand words that should save me a whole bunch of typing ;-]

I have a Fuji FinePix S5000 and the battery door catches (on the body of the camera) have broken off. Replace complete body assy??? I am sure mine is not the only one. any help appreciated.

I had this problem also (see below).

After getting poor results with the duct tape solution, I discovered another work-around. This should work whether it is chipped lugs on the door or on the body.

Firstly I used an old camera flash bracket that screws into the tripod socket, and this holds the battery door in place quite securely. However it was too long, so I cut and filed a piece of aluminium 25mm (1") wide by 2.5mm thick to the right length (around 100mm/4") and shape, and made a hole for the bracket screw.

End result is not exactly like new, but more functional than the duct tape and does not further damage the actual camera:

Both Screens Flicker after trying to replace touch screen

I finally solved the flickering problem on my DS (!), after I made my 1st engineering attempt overhaul shell, top screen and broken right hinge.   Was really frustrated about the flicker afterwards, and opened up unit back up too many times to debug (risked damage to cable ribbon everytime!).
Anyway turns out there's 2 hidden screws (location:  inside the battery compartment near where the front 'volume slider' is located) that adjusts the flickering (like how you need to calibrate an LCD monitor from doing same flickering effects) . You'll need a really (really!) small philips (+) screwdriver to do the adjustment.
Open up the battery cover with the VOL label upside down & facing you.  The adjustment screws are recessed deep inside the plastic...a right and left screw.  With the DS turned 'ON' to see the screen (whether you twist your neck to be able to see or have a mirror on the table in front of the DS)....slowly/carefully turn the screws to adjust until you like the clarity.  That's it.   The right screw = bottom screen.  The left screw = top screen.
Now.... on to figuring out how to replace or fix the broken Power toggle switch that I snapped off!  Currently using the toothpick method, but that's getting old!  Any suggestions, I'd appreciate it!
