Question about Computers & Internet

Re; fUJITSU t-730 Tablet PC: I wish to take the entire top "half" (containing the display, the "lid' and the entire assembly "north" of the swivel hinge) and separate it from the base. I have two of these, and want to swap the display on one with the other - for good reasons, but not germain to the question. I will say that I want to put the better screen a(bright, "wide angle, outdoor"with the better chassis (better cpu,, HDD, RAM), so if it is easier to just swap the displays, and not the entire top portion of the computer, please feel free to explain that. I have always found how-tos for display changes to appear to be "messy" at best, and given the multiple dgitizer layers of a dual digitizer screen, it seems especially dicey to swap displays. It would appear to be so "simple" - no doubt, deceptively so - to get to the screws which attach the swivel hinge to the base - or the lid - carefully pull apart all the connecting wires, swap top halves and, volia! I have the "transplants" I seek. Finally, I cannot find a service manual for the T730 or its predecessor "twin,' the T4410; the chassis for both are identical, and if you can help me find a service/repair manual, that would probably give me all the info I need

    Thanks for letting me know about the repair manuals. Pretty sleazy move, as most other mfrs publish theirs on the web (HP, Dell, etc.).

    Thanks for clarifying that there are small differences between the T4410 and the T730.

    I do want to perform this "head transplant" because I have two T-730s, one with a Core i7 cpu but the standard screen and one with a core i3 cpu and the bright, wide angle screen, and there is a huge difference. I bought them both at the Fujitsu eBay site where you don't always get to pick and choose.

    In any event, I would love to have step by step directions. But before you get into that, please tell me your opinon; is it just a matter of carefully removing many screws, keeping track of them and separating the screen/lid from the base, or are there other components (eg, keyboard) that are tricky to get off and put back on that are required to get to the swivel hinge. I am competent to do disassembly, keep track of parts and carefully disconnect wires, but anything requiring more dexterity/expertise is beyond my ken. One of the things I read about that was a little tricky was disconnecting the very thin antenna wires.

    Anyway, if you think from my above description that tackling this task should be possible for me (one more thing: I know when I hit a task that I have a risk of causing irreparable damage and often have stopped at such a point and putting everything back from there.), I would love to have step by step directions.

  • Jeff Bellin Nov 08, 2010

    I did not hear back from the first expert, who said he would provide me with step by step directions to achieve what I want to achieve. He also told me that it is impossible for owners to get service manuals for Fujitsu products. That fact alone amkes me think twice about purchasing more.

    Nonetheless, I really do want some help as to just how to dissemble the T-730 sufficiently to get the entire lid/screen section off and swap it with my other T730's sreen.

    I would appreciate hearing if you agree with the first expert (you can easily swap lid/screens between T730s and you cannot get a service manual) and, if you agree with both, I would be happy to pay an extra fee for the how-to for this. Thank you very much.

  • Jeff Bellin Nov 09, 2010

    Sorry I couldn't get back to you for a couple of days. In the interim, a member of a forum I am active on actually sent me pictures and step by step instructions as to how to do this. You are right that it does require getting pieces off of the casing and even reremoving some connections to the motherboard, but it's actually fairly simple. My forum buddy said it took him 20 minutes to take apart and reconnect the first try and 10 minutes the second. So, I'm going to give it a whirl. Thanks for the help. You are correct about Fujitsu keeping everything very "close to the bone" - I have heard that from everyone I asked about a repair manual.

    Best,

    Jeff Bellin

There unfortunately is no real service manual for either of these models, all the specs you are looking for are proprietary confidential information that only Fujitsu tech people can access. I have taken these models apart though in the past and it is far from easy.

You do need to completely disassemble to base of the laptops, opening the case and getting to the motherboard of the computers. To do that you pretty much have to "crack" open parts of the casing, around the ports such as the video out ports... In the factory they really do break the case off and just replace it when they are rebuilding it.

Sadly there is no simple way to get those screens off the hinges and swap them, and it will actual damage the casing of the laptop to even try.

Let me know what you think you want to do here... just thought I'd get this information over to you so you can make the decision

Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.

Tim though.

Hello

The fujitsu service manuals are limited to working employees and approved companies, leaking out a service manual is a violation of the agreement with fujitsu.

I'm not an employee of fujitsu and you are going to have a hard time finding that service manual.

As for the replacement job. Its definitely better to replace the whole display, If you are trying to swap out a display from T730 into a T4410, its not going to work. There are many small differences in the display, the screw positions, etc, not going to fit.

As for replacing a T730 display from another T730, that will do fine.

The cables go into the casing of the computer from the display, and you will have to take apart the machine quite alot. Your going to have to sit down and take the machine apart, make sure you got alteast two hours to figure it out.

If you want me to write instructions on how to dissasemble the machine let me know.

    The antenna wires are pretty easy to pop up, if you have taken apart other laptops, its the same thing or as far as I know.


    The wires might be a bit difficult to get out from the bottom of the laptop and to come out with the display, but it shouldn't be too much.


    You can definitely do it as long as your hands move and you can write on the keyboard, so you definitely have what it takes to take apart a machine. it might be a bit more difficult on getting the screen off the base, but I havent taken this machine apart myself to say for sure, it might be as easy as other machines.


    but with patience and care you can get it apart and keep track of what goes where, and since if you have done this before on other machines, I'm pretty sure you can figure it out, but don't force anything.


    About the different models again, unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer: from previous experience that you can't take a part from another model and put on another, since theres the very annoying small differences for example tried to swap the exact same looking keyboard from a acer machine to another acer machine, the cable was on the other side so it was impossible to connect but it went in just fine. Then another case was when I was replacing a lcd display on a normal laptop HP, both where HP, size the same but the screen had the screw holes on the different spots forcing me to come up with something or buy the same model screen for that laptop.

Fujitsu Siemens Stylistic ST4120 Tablet PC pen not working with screen


I just fixed this problem on the 4120 for a friend, What I did was first to install the drivers from the Fujitsu site so XP was displaying all drivers as installed in Device manager.


Then I ran windows update to patch it up to date and then I downloaded the drivers from the wacom site.

Then choose tablet pc from the first drop down and then os (xp in my case) from the second drop down.
Reboot

Kenmore 70 series clicks loudly inside agitator like it is missing. It will agitate. It is like turn click click turn click click click turn. Not the rhythmic noiseless turns it had a week ago


If its just the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs

Whirlpool manufactured washers use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located along the wash tub rim under the lid) and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The spinner is not rotating and is making weird noise.


If this is a TOP LOADING Roper washer, a no spin problem can have several causes. However, most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:

I have a Krups Vitamight model 294 juice extractor. My son used it and now I can't get the pulp container off. I have never used it and the the manual is gone.


i was having the same problem and couldn't find it anywhere... finally figured out that you twist the top off. place the unit with front towards you.
pull/twist the right side (pulp catcher) towards you about a quarter turn and the entire top comes off including the sieve.
