How to remove the top cover and right side cover (closest to MB) on Gateway DX4300-22. Have left side cover off and both side and top rear screws removed(6). The right side will slide back from the bottom rear, but is restrained at the top front by tabs? where? Looks like the top has to come up to miss the mem card reader at the front and the two usb ports near the rear recess in the top cover. Just can't see how to get further.

Gateway is notorious for putting hidden clips towards the front face of the computer. Look for plastic push tabs along the inside of the front of the computer. If you locate them, pull/squeeze them to the insides of the case and push forward. The front cover should come off.

10. Remove flat ribbon cable on left side at either connection point to disconnect scanner assy. from print engine.
11. Entire scanner assembly can now be slid forward and removed.
12. Close the front, rear and left side doors on the print engine portion and set it aside.
13. Grab front panel face plate at top and pull forward and remove.or pry gently at top of face plate)
14. At top of exposed front panel you will see four slots in the scanner assy. At the third one from the left there is a latch dark grey plastic. Push down on the latch with a screwdriver and slide the whole panel assy. to the right. Lift up and out making sure to disconnect the cable.
15. Remove the three screws in the now exposed dark grey front panel cradle and cover, remove the two cables connecting the cover to the main board, pry gently at the top outer corners of the cover and pull it forward and down, remove the cover.

17. Turn the unit back upright and remove the four screws at the back/top two of them are down inside where the doc feeder normally goes. Remove the top scanner cover.
18. DANGER your about to work on the scanner carriage itself there is a really good chance that you could break it or the mirrors or bulb so proceed at your own risk.

21. The top mirror is held in by some really tight clips they have to be removed from the bottom right clean the mirrors without this step if possible. NOTE: optical mirrors are not like a bathroom mirror, there is no glass covering the reflective surface. The back side of the mirror has glass covering it so if you get it in backwards it wont work. The way to tell which side you have is touch your screwdriver to the mirror and if its the right side the screwdriver will appear to touch the reflection of the screwdriver, if it's the wrong side the screwdriver will not touch the reflection of the screwdriver because of the glass covering the reflective surface.
22. Now clean the remaining mirrors and lens very thoroughly with alcohol. Make sure they are very clean. You can put the top mirror back and clean it in place to make cleaning it easier.
23. When reassembling the top cover check to make sure the white strip on the right side is clean.
24. Reverse procedure for re-assembly.

Need help installing antenna for Gateway 400SD4 PC Notebook


Am presuming you're referring to antennas for use with a WiFi card that fits into the mini-PCI slot under one of the covers on the underside of the laptop. I've done this on the same model, but have not been entirely pleased with the performance -- mostly due to weak reception. I'm not sure of the reason, which may be because the antennas used weren't up to the job, or if there are inherent reception limitations even when the antennas are properly installed. It's certainly better than no antenna at all, but nowhere near as good as a USB 2.0 dual-band Wireless-N WiFi adaptor. I may try a different internal antenna to see if that improves reception.
All that being said, this is not a job for an amateur, and should only be attempted by someone with good technical skills and some experience in computer/laptop repairs. These antennas are flat, either square or rectangular, and are intended to be placed inside the top cover, behind the LCD display, between the foil backing and the top of the lid. The cables are routed through the right side of the left hinge, then under the cooling fans and motherboard. Of course all disassembly & reassembly should be done with power disconnected and battery removed. To do all this, you'll need to:
-- first remove the panel with the power on/off button and status LEDs (Gateway calls it a "keyboard cover;" use a thin, flathead screwdriver to pry up the right side, just above the Insert & Delete keys, then lift up so that the snaps release), then
-- remove the keyboard (remove 4 tiny phillips-head screws just above the keyboard, lift the rear of the keyboard and lift the tabs to the ribbon-cable connector on the motherboard),
-- remove the 3 screws holding the keyboard retaining panel (above the two cooling fans), and slide it toward the front to remove it, then
-- remove the 4 screws to the left fan assembly (NOT the fan itself), unplug the cable, and lift the front side first to remove it, then
-- unplug the power cable ane remove the 4-5 screws holding the right fan and heatsink assembly, and remove it, then
-- remove the 2 plastic hinge covers, and the 4 screws to the hinges, and disconnect all the cables connecting the LCD to the motherboard, then
-- remove all the rubber/plastic "bumpers" on the LCD bezel, and the screws beneath, and use your fingers to gently pry the bottom of the bezel from the screen, and progressively pry the remaining snaps loose to remove the bezel, then
-- remove the screws holding the LCD panel in the top cover.
Once all this is done, you can install the new antennas under the foil (i.e. between the foil and the top cover) so that they will be at the top when the computer is open and operating, run the cables through the right side of the left hinge, replace the LCD screen with all the screws, and the bezel. When you put the top cover back onto the base, route the antenna cables around the right side of the left fan, and through the hole in the motherboard, so that the cables appear in the mini-PCI card slot area. Reassemble everything else in reverse order from disassembly, connect the cables to your mini-PCI WiFi card, replace the cover, and test it out.

How Do I remove the cover from a Gateway 500 series???


Like this Gateway SE?

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/2800071/280007101.shtml

On the back of the computer remove the screw from the top middle.
Now remove the screw on each outside edge, down towards the bottom.

Hold the outside shell, or computer cover. Push the inside forward.
The computer cover comes off like a shell, or bonnet.

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/2800050/280005003.shtml

If this is a reference to a Gateway 500X series, remove the thumb screw/s from the back of the computer, on the right side. (Right side as you are facing the back of the computer) Then slide this Side Panel towards the back of the computer.

I have been using Olympus Master 2.03 for a long time. I have the problem of it shutting down usually in edit mode. Is this problem fixed in OM2.2?


Remove the two screws on the right side of the camera (right as camera is facing away from you.)

Remove the screw from the top right side of the camera.

Remove two screws from left side of camera.

Remove the screw from the top left side of the camera.

Remove the screw that is just to the right of the viewfinder.

Pop up the flash.

Lift the top section of the casing off, with the following in mind... There are two spots where the casing interlocks: 1. Rear to the right of the viewfinder -- press in on that area to release it from the lower casing. 2. Front directly under the ME in MEGAPIXEL; press in on that as well.

Remove screw from rear side of tripod mount. (leave the front one)

CAREFULLY remove the screw from the viewfinder adjustment. The adjustment is very delicate and has two tiny plastic tabs that will shear off quite easily -- trust me because I broke mine. If you break yours, be sure to adjust it to the most convenient position (i.e. not macro) before reassembling.

REMOVE THE FLASH CARD!

At thie point, no screws impede the removal of the rear case. The flash card ejector switch, however, is a minor obstacle. It seems best to have it slid all the way to the left as you work the rear cover off (from right to left worked for me.)

Now follow the green ribbon cable from the Cancel/OK/4way switch up to the right of the zoom. Just to the right of the zoom, under that cable, is a screw hole that is more than likely EMPTY. It's not supposed to be. Find the tiny screw that goes in that hole. Either get rid of it, (not vital, IMHO) or if you want to put it back...

To replace the screw:

Remove the two screws holding the top LCD and power switch on.

Lift the rear of that assembly up to disengage its connector, and slide it back. Two LEDs protrude down from the front of it into the front casing, so be careful not to bend them.

Underneath is the socket for the ribbon for the OK/Cancel/4way. Slide it out. Now you have access to the screw hole.

Replace the screw.

Re-insert the ribbon. Make sure it is in all the way and straight.

Tile the top control board back into place, pressing it down into its socket.

At this point I inserted a battery and tested to make sure the rear and top controls still functioned. You may want to play it safe and not do this while all of the guts are exposed, but the risk is probably minimal. Do it at your own risk though.

Replace the two screws for the top control assembly.

Temporarily press the flash down and make sure the white switch at its rear is in the right place and won't get smashed when you reassemble!

Seat the compactflash ejector slide switch onto the bottom of the camera, making sure its points left, and that its two adjacent tabs straddle the metal tab on the CF slot. It's easiest to reassemble when it is slid left, so slide it there.

Replace the rear cover, tilting it on from left to right.

Insert a CF card and make sure the release switch works.

Make sure the hinge pin for the CF cover hasn't slid out, and that the cover snaps into place.

Replace its 2 long silver screws on right side of the rear cover.

Replace two shorter silver screws on left side of the rear cover.


Replace the longer silver tripod mount screw.

VERY CAREFULLY insert the viewfinder adjustment into the viewfinder, making sure its delicate tabs are in the slots of the viewfinder.
Reinstall the long black screw that holds it in place.
(If you break this, make sure to adjust the viewfinder to an optimal (infinity?) position before replacing the back cover.)

Replace the top cover while holding the flash release switch back.
Note the two points from earlier that snap together.

Test the flash release.

Replace the two screws on either side of the top cover and the one in the rear. These are all the same size.

I get a scanner bulb warming up error message how can i fix it


Apparently this is a very common issue with this printer. Some repair people won't touch it and tell you to buy a new printer. However, I have been able to find a solution to your problem. You need to clean the scanner mirrors and the black ribbon under the cover.

*****CAUTION***** This is a very complicated project and can result in the loss of your printer. So proceed VERY cautiously, or send it in for repair.

Below are some instructions I have found to disassemble your printer. Please remember, only do this at your own risk and use extreme caution while doing so.

Here are the instructions:

Water is leaking out of the machine Im not quite sure where from.I guess pouring out would describe it better .It`s not coming from the door.


leaks are usually from valve /dispenser area on top left or from door boot. to check valves open top cover by removing 2 or 3 torx/ 1/4' screws at rear and slide back. check underside of dispenser for cracks, check rubber hose connecting valves to dispenser.
to open front and check around boot, remove top cover, remove screws beside dispenser opening (remove drawer) snap control console off starting at dispenser side. On older non teardrop front disconnect and remove interface cables from ccu at rear (ribbon cable in clips on right side. On new teardrop models remove teardrop by unsnapping at top then work down carefully, then unclip console starting at left, disco cables at right side of interface. remove lower kick panel with 3 screws on bottom. then remove 2 front panel screws. remove 2 door lock asm screws and spring clip around boot, then 2 front panel top screws. panel comes right off, carefull of boot. door lock stays behind.
