Opening the unit

How did you open the unit without completely tearing it open? I haven't been able to get the lid off after taking the screws out without just ripping it off.

Use a small/jewelers flat head screw driver to separate the silver cover from the rest of it. the rubber buttons will fall out, thats ok. the black backing will not come loose from the actual circuit boards because the FM transmitter antenna is fixed in place under some melted tabs, and then soldered to the board next to the power button. Its usually easiest to unsolder it to get the back off for doing repairs.

How do I fix lid on HP Pavilion M6-1009TX notebook laptop ?

In this case, i recommend you to bring your laptop to any service centres around and ask for part replecement.

Yes, the hinges are loose. It is a well known issues for laptop users. Frequent opening and closing behaviour can cause the wear and tear effect become even more apparent.

But if you really want to do it by yourself, then you should prepare a few things.

1) The hinges specifically for your model.
2) Set of screwdrivers for your laptop
3) Another laptop / tablet/ phone that can be used while you open up the laptop.

From there, you can search the youtube for hinge replacement. Take note of the number of parts and screws you took out. Opening it would be easy but putting it back in place is hell of a mess. Take a note and be organized while doing it. We don't want the keyboard to be loose after this wouldn't we?

Good luck.

HOw Do I Take Apart a Dell Inspiron1764

LOL, just get some paper cups and label them with the screws you take off so that you will know how to put them back. It would take too long to go into details on how to tear a laptop down, but basically you remove the power cord, remove the battery, remove screws from the bottom case, remove the disk drive, remove the memory, remove the cd drive, remove the wifi card, remove the dvd drive, remove screws inside battery case, remove screws inside the hard drive case, remove screws inside the cd case, turn the laptop over, open the lid, remove the strip above the keyboard, remove screws holding the keyboard, remove the keyboard, remove screws holding the palmrest, remove the palmrest, remove the lcd hinges, remove the wires coming from the lcd going down thru the palmrest. Lift the motherboard out.

The screws that hold the lid switch loosened all the way, and will not tighten back up. How do I open the machine to secure the lid switch? Thank You - Km


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "the screws that hold the lid switch loosened all the way, and will not tighten back up"
it sounds like you`ll need to replace the lid switch, but first...

( this is also based on the idea its a whirlpool made top load, but you haven`t specified )

This is a common problem with these type of units since the assembly is made of plastic, fortunately changing it is pretty easily...

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...especially those built in the past 1-2yrs. the model number would distinguish if it applies to your particular model )

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

The lid switch will look like this...

Let me know what you find and if I can assist you further.

Good luck.

Open the lid, the screws that hold it are in the lip of the washer. 2 phillips screws. You should be able to hold the switch and tighten the screws without removing tha cabinet. I found a marvelous video that shows how to replace the switch HERE

How to open the case

Remove 6 screws around the unit, remove the cover on the strap side, open the battery lid, lift the back cover from the bottom and take it off, same as the front cover. You may have a little difficulty with the claw near by the viewfinder, but it would be fine. It is not very hard to open this unit.
When you close it, be careful the mode switch, don’t forget to put it in the right position.

I need to repair my washing machine Model KAWE577BWH1

To remove the cabinet safely, the washing machine should be turned off and unplugged. Next take out the control panel by removing the screws. Also take out the spring clips which are situated in the corners and after doing that remove the harness that is connected to the lid switch wiring. Pull the lid and also keep a hand on the cabinet opening that shows itself when you open the lid. Furthermore adjust the cabinets position and then pull the lid and the cabinet opening. It should be removed now.

Lg dle0332w dryer something is in the tumbling gearing. sounds like loose change. I tried removing the panels but no luck like i have with other makes. How do i open the top, back etc

Unplug the unit or turn off the breaker. Back of the lid there are 2 screws, remove them and then slide the lid back. You may have to use some force. Lift lid and your in the unit. Couple screws to remove the front panel (control) and a few more including 2 inside the door and the complete front will come off.

Key pad TALK button

I am sorry but while many phones can be opened with some common tools and a little dexterity, that phone model is manufactured and designed in a way where it cannot be opened by a consumer or even a gifted techie without destroying its integrity. It has no screws, and the method to open it without destroying it is completely based upon muscle memory and a specific tool. In addition, even if you were to open it without destroying the plastic you would clean the keys only to have them still barely work. I train technicians to open them, and I have to sit them down with bad ones that they can destroy to practice opening them without tearing them up. Once the plastic tabs that hold them together are busted, the phone won't stay together properly and then your costs just went up to replace the plastic once you finally get it to the repair facility. So the best advice I can give in this case is to send it in for repair so the keypad can be fixed and upgraded. If you go to the Siemens website, and reach the Gigaset area, look for the FAQs and they can direct you to a repair source. Their global site is pretty large, so if you get lost, you can google Siemens Cordless Repair to find a solution.

DVD not playing message say H02

There is a solution but it takes a little care because the wrong thing touched will give you a shock. Just stay away from the unit near where the power lead enters the unit. OK. remove the top of the unit, place a disk in the unit press play and gently give the DVD a gentle push in a clockwise direction. This disk should then get up to speed and start playing. It also unlocks the error. No guarantees with this one some work, some don't. I hope yours does. BMW
