Usually the glue is hot glue. I suggest not using super glue or regular glue.

This is actually a common thing. Usually happens when you start talking loud at your computer and it just isn't behaving ;-] Anyway I usually have used a spot or two of crazy glue on the normal glue or attach points and then a bit of hot melt around it to provide extra support. It is enough of a pain to get at so make sure you get it fixed or secured and thats its still functional before you put everything back together.

Hi! I have a Compaq Presario CQ50, and the power button ribbon cable got broken. There is no physical contact between the cable and the power button board anymore, so I can`t turn the laptop on. Do I have...


zoric_aljmas, I would replace the parts since they are not that expensive! They will run between $50-$100 dollars for the power on/off button board with the interconnect cable.. You might even find it for a lot less if you due a search on the web!! You could take a look at this site and let me know if it was helpful:

The start button is not turning my hp pavllion dv 6000 on


Various issues could cause this. If you are a tech. Or know one

1 If the ring around the power plug is lit:
  • Check MOSFETs on the front end. Both sides - Usually AO4407 or AO4422 to the bottom surface (which faces up when opened), and FDS6679 on top surface, just below the square power plug from DC Jack.
  • Check the black ribbon cable connecting the power board to the motherboard. (the left cable is for power) It could be unseated, or fine connectors broken, or ribbon has break in leads.
  • Check to see if you can turn it on with remote control if your model has one.

2: if the ring is not lit,
  • check your AC Adapter
  • check the wall plug (mains in UK)

Ineed to access the power jack? How do i get


go to hp.com you can download manuals and drivers for your specific laptop,

on a side note, It has been my experiance that the power jacks are soldered on the mainboard and then thinly coated with glue so they hold position, keep that in mind because with yours being loose the odds are that the glue around your power jack is broken, so when you pull the jack out from the plastic case be careful not to break the solder connection on the mainboard

Lgateway laptop won't power on


Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.

Printer problem Officejet K60


dry the section thats bad use a little super glue to apply both ends together after you open ink cartridge
you will get messy so i sugest old clothes newspaper and some disposable gloves once you have the ink ribbon glued back together let dry in fridge for about 4 days sinces its cold its going to take a little longer for glue to dry but wont dry out the rest of the ribbon
this is the only eldest way since typewriter days this has been the simple fix of printer ribbons
make sure to always keep back up ribbon so your work doesnt fall behind

Sight target needs adjustment


I also had the same problem my Yardage Pro Compact 600. We live in the desert and I often leave my golf bag in the trunk of the car. One day the display on the rangefinder was shifted up so I assumed that the heat affected something. After checking with Bushnell, their answer was to ship it in and couldn't guarantee a cost.

So I also peeled back the rubber grips from the bottom - you only need to go far enough to unscrew the four screws. From there you have to snap apart the case so the top shell comes off (be sure to remove the battery and cover first). Once you've done that, unscrew the top circuit board (mine only had 2 of the 4 screws from the factory). Be careful not to unplug any of the 3 ribbon cables.

Move the top circuit board aside. Looking from the top front, there is an assembly at the back that holds the laser/reader, it is held in by 3 screws, 2 on the back left and 1 on the back right - remove them. Carefully remove the assembly leaving the 2 ribbon cables in tact. The 3rd (largest) ribbon cable is taped to the center sighting barrel. Gently remove the tape, the ribbon cable disappears into a **** in the back of the sighting barrel near the eyepiece, it is connected to the LCD display. Now flip the unit around and looking from the back eyepiece, remove the 2 screws near the ribbon cable. Now you should be able to lift the eyepiece up and away from the sighting barrel.

The ribbon cable and LCD window at the end of the cable should be glued on two corners inside the eyepiece (worse case the LCD is loose as mine was because the glue had deteriorated). First scrap out the old glue from the LCD and eyepiece frame, being careful to not let the remnants drop inside the eyepiece or you will see these in the viewfinder once you get it back together!

Using thick superglue and being careful not to touch the LCD and leave a smudge (or forget how it came out as your yardage display will be backwards!), put a tiny drop of glue on each lower corner of the eyepiece frame. Now carefully position the LCD window and push down to the bottom of the eyepiece frame. Try to center it left to right as near as possible (mine had a little gap on each side) while holding the LCD against the bottom edge. Keep it there until the glue dries.

Now reassemble everything, making sure the sighting barrel and especially the laser/reader assembly fits snugly in its cradle before reinstalling the 3 screws, then install the top circuit board. Snap the top cover back on and before putting the 4 cover screws in, put in the battery/cover and test it. Remember if your display is reversed you installed the LCD backwards!
