Acer Latch is broken

My laptop's latch is broken. When I try to close it, it doesn't close automatically I have to close it then push the latch to the left in order to lock it. I think it's loose.

    The latch(to open the laptop) slides from left to right manually. When I slide it from left to right it doesn't slide back to the left.

On most notebooks, there is a VERY small return spring (smaller than a spring from a ball point pen) on the latch that tends to break.

If you've tried to used adhesive and it still won't hold i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the latch. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party Acer Repair Service. However, the part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an Acer Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

So I close my car driver side door and it automatically says on the dash board that my door is open?? Any suggestions on what might be wrong. Its a 2011 Ford edge if that helps at all. thanks


Your door ajar system is tied into the door latch mechanism. if the door still appears to close tightly, and the door latch works properly, then you may need to adjust or replace the latch, though ford has listed a cleaning procedure for the latch that involves using a tool to test latch position and manually closing the latch (while door is OPEN) using a screwdriver 10-20x and monitoring to see if the latch consistently shows CLOSED and OPEN when it should.
If pushing the door closed after its already closed causes the lamp to turn off, an adjustment of the latch may help, or cleaning the latch contacts may also help. If the door never shows latched regardless of how hard it is pushed, it may be a defective latch, or a wiring problem (Door wires sometimes break in the door harness between the door and the side of the dashboard when the harness enters the vehicle).

Hood latch won't latch when closing


Raise hood,have some one go pull hood latch and you look at latch and see if it releases,if it doesn't then cable may need replacing,I would'nt completely shut hood cause you may not get back open,also check hood latches bolts and latch for something bent or broken.

How do i open the computer


Open the computer? You mean open the lid to the laptop? Some laptops latch once closed to prevent accidental opening. There should be a latch either located in the very front of the laptop that would need to be pushed to one side or the other or pressed to release the latch....or it may be located on the side.

GMC Envoy 2004 XUV tailgate won't latch closed. Pressure switch makes latch click but when I go to close it, it does not latch.


Two things happen. One the latch is already latched and therefore it's closed before the gate shut, When you try to close it you might notice that the door don't close all the way. This doe'snt have to be thwe case. the other thing that happens if the lock mechanism is working, You here it click? The latch is stuck as the opener is stuck. You might get lucky and spray the latch with Blaster or other rust buster type penatrant. Theres angles though the opening of the latch . Spray on several angles and repleatly close the door trying to vibrate the Penatrant into the stuck area. Looking at the latch use a screw driver to move the latch and see if you can cycle it though it's positions to see if you can latch and unlatch it with the tool and reopen by pullung the handle ( you may need to try ther inside handle too and even the remote openner if you have one. Ussaaaly you need to push the button twice to open the rear hatch so it may take a few trys and spraying to get it to come loose.. Some vehicals stay closed a long time and stuck is the way to think.. But if the door is used often the linkage inside the door mayh have come off the the latch is closed and the linkage doesn't open the laTCH AND THE THING MANAGED TO GET CLOSED WITHT THE DOOR OPEN.

The tailgate latch, doesn,t latch


you have to make sure the strikers are lined up to the latch. The latches get dirt in them and dont move easily. You may have to remove the latches and clean them and grease them up make sure the action is working. There is a spring on the latch if it is broken you will have to replace the latch. Make sure as you before you shut the tailgate the the latches on the tailgate are open and not latched closed. You can put a screw driver in the latch and pull the handle and that should release the latch in the position ready to accept the striker when you close it Next make sure the plastic clip retainers are not broken on the handle

Soap dispenser will not close stays open will not latch


Turn off power to the machine. Remove the inner door panel and inspect the dispenser cover latch for any broken components. If everything looks ok, check the action of the release solenoid by hand. If it is sticky or stuck closed, try removing the center pole piece and clean the solenoid interior and pole piece with a small rag or 'Q tips' with WD40. Don't otherwise lubricate the solenoid. Push the cover closed and push the solenoid pole to release the latch, then repeat the process again. If the cover will latch again, you can replace everything and try a load of dishes. Hope this helps

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latch, ideally toward the bottom of the handle opening. Once you get the latch open, you'll likely want to order a replacement (here is one source : http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Latch/W10130694/1266678 ). Remember to turn off the power to the dishwasher, and you'll need a star head driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door to access and replace the latch.
